Outlook

Development DB Group

  • Progress in implementing the Strong Rail strategy, capital expenditure activities continue to increase.
  • Further progress on quality and environmental topics.
  • Profit development is expected to be significantly under pressure.
  • Net financial debt is expected to be above the previous year’s level.
     

Our forecasts for the development of DB Group and the business units in the 2020 financial year are based on our expectations of developments in the market, competition and environment, and the implementation success of the planned measures.

Top-Targets Strong Rail

  • The performance development in local, long distance and rail freight transport as well as the demand for trainpaths is likely to be weaker in 2020. Negative effects to an extent not yet foreseeable result from the effects of the coronavirus.
  • By implementing attractiveness-increasing measures, we are striving to improve customer satisfaction.
  • For 2020, we expect a further improvement in punctuality due to the consistent continuation of the Strong Rail measures despite increased construction activity and increasing transport volume.
