Despite the severe global crisis, we delivered strong operating performance and rigorously drove our realignment forward. Our strategy concept Vision 2020+ is gaining traction, and Healthineers is testimony that shows the program’s strategic and transformational power. Our employees and our partners have my deep gratitude and respect. Together, they’ve set an impressive benchmark for dedication and performance.

Outlook

While we expect the economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic to continue to strongly impact our fiscal fourth quarter financial results, macroeconomic developments and their influence on Siemens still cannot be reliably assessed.

We continue to expect a moderate decline in comparable revenue in fiscal year 2020, net of currency translation and portfolio effects, with the book-to-bill ratio remaining above 1. The decline in demand most strongly affects our Operating Companies Digital Industries and Smart Infrastructure.

We adhere to our plan to complete the spin-off and public listing of Siemens Energy before the end of fiscal 2020. We expect to record a spin-off gain within discontinued operations, the amount of which cannot yet be reliably forecast. We continue to expect material impacts on Net income from spin-off costs and tax expenses related to the carve-out and sub-group creation of Siemens Energy.

Given the above-mentioned circumstances we continue to refrain from giving guidance for basic EPS from Net income for fiscal 2020.

This document contains statements related to our future business and financial performance and future events or developments involving Siemens that may constitute forward-looking statements. These statements may be identified by words such as “expect,” “look forward to,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “seek,” “estimate,” “will,” “project” or words of similar meaning. We may also make forward-looking statements in other reports, prospectuses, in presentations, in material delivered to shareholders and in press releases. In addition, our representatives may from time to time make oral forward-looking statements. Such statements are based on the current expectations and certain assumptions of Siemens’ management, of which many are beyond Siemens’ control. These are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and factors, including, but not limited to, those described in disclosures, in particular in the chapter Report on expected developments and associated material opportunities and risks of the Annual Report, and in the Half-year Financial Report, which should be read in conjunction with the Annual Report. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, events of force majeure, such as pandemics, occur or should underlying expectations including future events occur at a later date or not at all or assumptions prove incorrect, actual results, performance or achievements of Siemens may (negatively or positively) vary materially from those described explicitly or implicitly in the relevant forward-looking statement. Siemens neither intends, nor assumes any obligation, to update or revise these forward-looking statements in light of developments which differ from those anticipated.

This document includes – in the applicable financial reporting framework not clearly defined – supplemental financial measures that are or may be alternative performance measures (non-GAAP-measures). These supplemental financial measures should not be viewed in isolation or as alternatives to measures of Siemens’ net assets and financial positions or results of operations as presented in accordance with the applicable financial reporting framework in its Consolidated Financial Statements. Other companies that report or describe similarly titled alternative performance measures may calculate them differently.

Due to rounding, numbers presented throughout this and other documents may not add up precisely to the totals provided and percentages may not precisely reflect the absolute figures.
