key figures, operating numbers; real net output, value-added


Explanation:
key figures, operating numbers; real net output, value-added

There are multiple translations for both terms depending on context and customer.
The ones most likely to fit your limited context (more context could be helpful):

*** Kennzahlen: key figures, operating numbers; (metrics is another one, though I’ve seen it experly translated as Kenngrößen).

*** Wertschöpfung: real net output. Somewhat more general and more common translations, depending on context, are value(-)added, and of course value creation.
