The KAP Group at a glance
KAP AG is a listed industrial group in the upper midsize market that offers attractive growth opportunities in its respective niche markets. KAP AG focuses on four different business areas: engineered products, flexible films, surface technologies and precision components. We develop SMEs into market leaders as part of a segment strategy. Our long-term business plan defines clear roadmaps for each of our segments. Under strong segment leadership, these roadmaps are systematically implemented with the aim of optimizing processes, exploiting synergies within the segments and thereby increasing profitability.
The resulting endogenous and exogenous growth leads to a dynamic expansion of the product portfolio and consistent enhancement of market presence. A fundamental aspect of our strategy is also the intensification and consistent orientation of our R&D activities towards the development of innovative products and new markets. Using this approach, we want to achieve sustainable profitable growth. KAP allows its shareholders to participate in the long-term profitable growth through a attractive dividend.
We are on the right track. Our profitability is continuously improving. In 2021, our normalized EBITDA margin on an adjusted basis was a respectable 10.1% (previous year: 9.4%). At the same time, we have a solid balance sheet structure with a Group equity ratio of 53.4% (as of Dezember 31, 2021).
