Europe's largest software manufacturer SAP earned significantly more than expected in the past third quarter and is increasing the business outlook.

Adjusted for special effects and before interest and taxes, the operating result rose surprisingly, according to preliminary figures, by 2 percent to 2.10 billion euros, as the Dax heavyweight announced on Tuesday evening in Walldorf.

Walldorf - Thanks to the cloud business growing by a fifth, sales rose by 5 percent to 6.84 billion euros compared to the weak previous quarter.

Analysts had previously expected a significantly weaker increase.

The bottom line was that at 1.42 billion euros, there was still 14 percent less net profit than a year ago, and above all more money was needed for share-based compensation for employees.

After the surprisingly good performance, SAP boss Christian Klein increased the financial forecast for the current year slightly.

In the third quarter, the software for use via the network (cloud software) was again the growth driver, now the Walldorf-based company is expecting a currency-adjusted increase in sales of 16 to 19 percent in 2021.

Most recently, an increase of 15 to 18 percent was planned.

Adjusted operating profit is now expected to decrease by a maximum of 2 percent after adjusting for currency effects instead of 4 percent.

In the better case, SAP continues to consider a value as in the previous year to be possible at constant exchange rates.
