Siemens Jumps, Sees Rising Returns from Bulging Orders.
SIEMENS AG gained on expectations for higher margins from factory automation equipment and software products next year as order books rise to a record even as the global economy takes a turn for the worse.
The shares jumped as much as 8% in early Frankfurt trading, the most since March. Orders during fiscal 2022 climbed 17%, taking the backlog to a record €102 billion ($106 billion), Siemens said Thursday.
Siemens said it expects earnings per share to more than double in the year ending September 2023 to a range around 8.95 euros a share, seeing strong growth in all its main industrial businesses. That confidence underpinned a 6% increase in its annual dividend to €4.25 a share from €4.00.
Conspicuously, it forecast that orders would continue to outpace revenue over the last 12 months, a forecast that contrast markedly with the sharp decline in orders to German manufacturers over recent months. It said its forecast assumed that problems with global supply chains continue to ease, and that there are no further escalations in geopolitical tensions.
Siemens had ended its fiscal 2022 year on a strong note, with fourth quarter revenue rising 18% to €20.6 billion and orders rising 14% to €21.8B, giving a book-to-bill ratio of 1.06. Profit at its industrial businesses had climbed 38% to €3.2B.
