Strong demand delivers record high for order backlog –
focus on energy businesses
»After a powerful finish in fiscal 2019, the first quarter started slowly as expected. The weak performance across our energy
businesses reinforces our priorities. We confirm our full-year guidance and will list Siemens Energy on the stock exchange in
September as planned. This is a major milestone in positioning Siemens for the future,« said Joe Kaeser, President and Chief
Executive Officer of Siemens AG.
. Orders at €24.8 billion, down 2% from the strong prior-year level as sharply lower volume from large orders in Mobility more
than offset increases in the majority of industrial businesses, particularly in Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE);
revenue rose 1%, to €20.3 billion
. On a comparable basis, excluding currency translation and portfolio effects, orders declined 4% and revenue was down 1%;
the book-to-bill ratio was a strong 1.22 and the order backlog reached a new high at €149 billion
. Adjusted EBITA Industrial Businesses declined to €1.4 billion, due mainly to a loss in SGRE and market weakness for short-cycle
businesses; Adjusted EBITA margin Industrial Businesses was 7.3%, held back by €0.2 billion in severance charges, which
reduced Adjusted EBITA margin Industrial Businesses by 1.0 percentage points
. Net income declined 3% to €1.1 billion and included substantially better results outside Industrial Businesses compared to Q1
FY 2019; basic earnings per share (EPS) rose 6% to €1.33

Beginning with fiscal 2020, Siemens adopted IFRS 16, Leases, by applying the modified retrospective approach, i.e. prior-period
amounts are not adjusted. For further information, see Note 2 in B.6 Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements of our Annual
Report 2019.
Also beginning with fiscal 2020, several businesses formerly included in Portfolio Companies, Smart Infrastructure and Corporate

? Continued strong order intake, only slightly below the very high
basis of comparison in Q1 FY 2019; sharp growth in SGRE due to
several large orders for offshore wind-farms including service,
along with significant growth in Siemens Healthineers; declines
in Mobility and Gas and Power which in Q1 FY 2019 both posted
sharply higher volumes from large orders; excluding the net
change in large order volume, orders rose clearly
? Clear revenue growth in Siemens Healthineers and Smart
Infrastructure, partially offset by a significant decline in SGRE
? Strong book-to-bill ratio of 1.22; order backlog at a new high of
€149 billion
? Currency translation effects added two percentage points each to
order and revenue development; portfolio effects had a minimal
effect on volume development year-over-year
? Despite substantial improvement at Smart Infrastructure, lower
Adjusted EBITA Industrial Businesses due mainly to SGRE, which
posted a loss on substantial negative effects related to project
delays; and a decline at Digital Industries, driven by the current
downturn in short-cycle industries and sharply higher severance
? Substantially better results outside Industrial Businesses, most
notably in Real Estate Services due to a €219 million gain from
the transfer of an investment to Siemens Pension Trust e.V.; in
Financial Services due to a sale of an equity investment; and
from Corporate Treasury activities
? Net income: substantially lower income tax rate year-over-year
due mainly to a positive effect from a retroactive statutory tax
rate reduction and the largely tax-free gain from the abovementioned transfer of an investment to Siemens Pension Trust
? Higher Free cash flow from Industrial Businesses, at €863 million
compared to €595 million in Q1 FY 2019 which included
negative Free cash flow from SGRE; Free cash flow for the Group
benefited in the current period from the adoption of IFRS 16,
which had a positive effect of approx. €0.2 billion
? Provisions for pensions and similar obligations as of December
31, 2019: €8.6 billion (September 30, 2019: €9.9 billion);
decreased mainly due to higher discount rate assumptions and
contributions, including the above-mentioned transfer of an
investment to Siemens Pension Trust e.V., which strengthened
Siemens’ pension assets and further safeguards the postemployment benefits of employees
? ROCE declined on a combination of a significant increase in
average capital employed, resulting in part from the adoption of
IFRS 16 which increased lease liabilities, and lower net income
