BASF Reports Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and First Half of 2014; Reaffirms Earnings Guidance for the Full Year of 2014

BASF reported earnings results for the second quarter and first half of 2014. For the quarter, the company’s profits rose, driven by its oil and gas business. Bottom-line net profit climbed by 12% to EUR 1.299 billion. Underlying or operating profit grew by 13.9% to EUR 2.019 billion on a 0.6% increase in sales to EUR 18.455 billion. Earnings increased considerably in the chemicals business and the Oil & Gas segment. Earnings declined considerably, however, in the Agricultural Solutions segment and in other. The devaluation of almost all major currencies against the euro negatively impacted earnings by roughly EUR 200 million compared to the previous second quarter. EBIT increased by EUR 246 million to EUR 2.0 billion compared with the previous second quarter. Net income rose by EUR 142 million to EUR 1.3 billion. Earnings per share were EUR 1.41 in the second quarter of 2014 compared with EUR 1.26 in the same period of the previous year. Adjusted for special items and amortization of intangible assets, earnings per share rose to EUR 1.54 compared to EUR 1.40 in second quarter of 2013. EBITDA went up 9% to EUR 2.7 billion. EBIT before special items increased by 12% to almost EUR 2.1 billion. At almost EUR 1 billion, operating cash flow in the second quarter was significantly lower than last year due to an increase in net working capital and a swing in miscellaneous items. For the first half, at EUR 2.6 billion, cash provided by operating activities was 34% lower than last year. This was mainly attributable to an increase in net working capital and a swing in miscellaneous items. CapEx increased to EUR 2.1 billion compared to EUR 1.9 billion in the prior year. Free cash flow decreased to EUR 500 million. The company reaffirmed earnings guidance for the full year of 2014. Full-year sales were likely to fall slightly compared with 2013, due to the divestiture of the gas trading and storage business, as well as to continuing negative currency effects. The group said it expected underlying profit to increase considerably, not least because of the windfall gains from the planned divestiture of the gas trading and storage business. The company aims to increase sales volume, excluding the effects of acquisitions and divestiture. The company expects a slight increase in EBIT before special items, especially as a result of considerably higher contribution from the Performance Products and Functional Materials & Solutions segments.

BASF to Cut More Than 2,000 Jobs by End of 2017

BASF expects to cut more than 2,000 jobs by the end of 2017 as part of the ongoing restructuring of its performance products business. The restructuring of the performance products segment is on track. Through the restructuring measures in this segment, more than 2,000 positions will be reduced by the end of 2017.

BASF Inaugurates its Large European Production Plant for Mobile Emissions Catalysts in Sroda Slaska, Poland

BASF inaugurated its new production plant for mobile emissions catalysts in Sroda Slaska, a Special Economic Zone near Wroclaw, Poland. Construction of the new 40,000 square meter manufacturing facility – BASF’s large emissions catalysts plant in Europe – began in late 2012, supported by an initial €90 million investment. The plant began production trials in April 2014, and last month started up two emissions catalysts manufacturing lines, with an initial employee base of 100. Additional expansions will follow, raising the total investment for the plant to approximately €150 million. Once all ten planned light duty and heavy duty catalysts production lines are operating at full capacity by 2016, BASF expects to employ more than 400 people at the Sroda Slaska site.
