Schramberg, 23 June 2022 – At the Annual General Meeting in Frankfurt am Main on 22 June 2022, the shareholders of hGears AG approved all items on the agenda. The event was held in a virtual format given the heightened levels of uncertainty as to whether and how an in-person event could be held against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic. 75.6 % of the share capital were represented at the Annual General Meeting. This figure also includes postal votes. The proposals for resolutions put to the vote were adopted by the shareholders. Furthermore, the Annual General Meeting approved the actions of the Management Board and the Supervisory Board with 99,993 % and 95,557 % of the votes respectively and approved the compensation report.
In fiscal 2021, hGears successfully navigated the corona pandemic, an IPO, and a refinancing, while the war in Ukraine and record levels of inflation represent new hurdles in 2022. Despite these challenges, the company has managed to grow revenues across the different business areas e-Mobility, e-Tools and Conventional. The good commercial performance continued into 2022 and based on the expanding customer base and solid order book, the management is reconfirming the full-year 2022 guidance with confidence (high single-digit revenue growth, adjusted EBITDA at the previous year’s level), while reiterating the mid-term target of EUR 250 million for Group revenue, EUR 150 million of which are accounted for by e-Mobility.
