Siemens reported revenues of 72 billion Euro, up 8.2 percent in fiscal 2022
In fiscal 2022, Siemens increased revenue on a comparable basis – without currency translation and portfolio effects – 8.2 percent to 72.0 billion Euro (fiscal 2021: 62.3 billion Euro) and thus exceeded its guidance for revenue growth (6 percent to 8 percent). Orders grew 17 percent on a comparable basis to 89.0 billion Euro (fiscal 2021: 71.4 billion Euro).
Digital business continued to grow rapidly and climbed around 15 percent to 6.5 billion Euro (fiscal 2021: 5.6 billion Euro), enabling Siemens to considerably exceed its announced growth rate of an average annual growth of 10 percent.
Profit of the Industrial Business also set a new record, increasing 17 percent to 10.3 billion Euro (fiscal 2021: 8.8 billion Euro). The profit margin of the Industrial Business improved to 15.1 percent. Net income came in at 4.4 billion Euro (fiscal 2021: 6.7 billion Euro). This decline was primarily due to the non-cash impairment of 2.7 billion Euro in Q3 2022 related to the company’s stake in Siemens Energy.

Under these conditions, with the company’s high order backlog, particularly in short-cycle businesses, Siemens expects its industrial businesses to continue their profitable growth.
