Revenues increase to EUR 72.2 million and EBITDA to EUR 64.0 million
Mannheim. According to preliminary figures, the Deutsche Rohstoff Group generated consolidated net income of EUR 32.5 million in the first half of 2022 (previous year: EUR 17.5 million). This corresponds to EUR 6.36 per share. Revenues amounted to EUR 72.2 million (previous year: EUR 38.8 million) and EBITDA to EUR 64.0 million (previous year: EUR 39.9 million).
Production in the second quarter was 10,890 BOEPD per day (including 6,090 barrels of oil), compared with 7,880 BOEPD in the first quarter (including 4,230 barrels of oil). Full-year production is expected to remain unchanged at 9,300 to 10,000 BOEPD. Losses from hedging amounted to around EUR 15.0 million in the 2nd quarter, compared with around EUR 10.0 million in the 1st quarter. The hedging ratio was 68% in the first half of the year. In the second half of the year, it falls significantly to around 35%.
With the half-year result, the company is within the forecast of the “higher price scenario” from April 2022 for the year 2022.
Assuming an average oil price of USD 92 per barrel from April to December 2022, the Company expects revenue of around EUR 140 to 150 million and EBITDA of EUR 120 to 130 million as part of this increased forecast. If the oil price averages around USD 85 during this period, revenues are expected to be in the range of EUR 130 to 140 million and EBITDA around EUR 110 to 120 million.

Jan-Philipp Weitz commented: “Our strong performance in the first six month underlines the positive development of the company and shows that we are on a very good track to achieve the guidance in the higher price scenario. The high cash flows from operations provide the basis for solid growth and planned investments in the US in 2022 and 2023 of well over EUR 100 million.”
The final figures and the half year report for the first half of 2022 of the Deutsche Rohstoff Group will be available on the company’s website by mid-August.
