The net profit in the first half of the year, at 1.07 million euros, already exceeds the profit of the entire previous year of 0.99 million euros.

The first half of 2019 in detail
Dynamic development in the first half of 2019 and further increase in the outlook 2019
"UniDevice benefits from industry growth and increases its own market share in communications and consumer electronics. Telephone companies and B2C retailers are increasingly using supply chain optimization through UniDevice's international B2B brokerage. The increase in market penetration is achieved independently of the sales development of individual smartphone manufacturers. Our business model as a broker is marked by significantly lower risks due to the fast stock turnover in an average of 5 days and immediate payment by the customers than with a traditional wholesaler."
UniDevice intends to continue its growth course. In the current year, the revenue growth should be at least 26% to more than EUR 400 million. As the necessary capacities are already in place, UniDevice can exploit economies of scale and improve margins at all levels. Accordingly, EBIT should increase disproportionately more than 90% to more than EUR 3.5 million in 2019.
