This entry explains why the profit figures are not publicly visible for all companies.
When a company discloses its annual net profit/loss in its balance sheet or income statement in the Federal Gazette, we also do this publicly.
If the profit is not explicitly stated in all annual reports, then In this case, we make an estimate calculation based on corresponding variables from the balance sheet (e.g., by comparing the net profit to the previous year). The resulting profit figure may differ from the net profit for the year, according to the German Commercial Code (HGB). For example, dividends paid to shareholders may not be taken into account.
Estimated profit figures are marked as "uncertain" and are only available to Premium customers.
