Carmeuse Group Announces Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Half Ended on June 2014

Carmeuse Group announced consolidated earnings results for the first half ended on June 2014. For the period, the company reported after taxes, the net result showed a net profit of EUR 11.0 million compared to a net profit of EUR 30.9 million in June 2013. The decrease of the net profit is mainly due to the significant contribution in 2013 of the marked-to-market valuation of interest rate derivatives. End of June 2014, the group consolidated net debt was EUR 554.5 million versus EUR 518.4 million at the end of 2013. The debt increase relates essentially to a mix of capital expenditures, the closing of an acquisition in Columbia and dividends payment. Net turnover of EUR 527.7 million or a 2.7% organic increase compared to last year. EBITDA of EUR 101.8 million reflecting a 10.1% organic decrease over last year, mainly explained by exceptional weather conditions in North America heavily impacting operational performance.
