Waldenburg, 10 June 2021 - Following a noticeable shortage of raw materials that also led to rising procurement costs, R. STAHL announces an unscheduled increase of its sales prices. As a result and effective 1 July 2021, list prices for products of the core program will be up 2.9% and for all other products by 4.9% on average.

In addition to the strong worldwide growth driven by digitalization as well as high demand from China, shortages of iron ore and specialty plastics are the primary cost drivers of R. STAHL's key raw materials. Moreover, limited transport capacities lead to rising freight costs. R. STAHL expects that the announced price increase will largely compensate for the rise in procurement costs.
Based on its price increase announcement, R. STAHL lifts the sales outlook for FY 2021 from the previous range of €250 million to €256 million now to a range of €254 million to €260 million. The expectation for EBITDA pre exceptionals for FY 2021 remains unchanged between €17 million and €19 million.
