Comet Holding AG Announces Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Half of 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Second Half and Full Year of 2014

Comet Holding AG announced consolidated earnings results for the first half of 2014. For the first half, the company reported that net sales increased by 25.0% year-over-year to CHF 132.6 million against CHF 106.0 million a year ago. Operating earnings at the EBITDA level rose to CHF 10.7 million against CHF 9.8 million a year ago, even with the strategic investment in future growth in areas such as ebeam, HF generators and CT. Net income, helped by a good net financial items result, expanded by 64.9% to CHF 4.4 million against CHF 2.7 million a year ago. Free cash flow also improved markedly, rising to a positive CHF 8.3 million against free cash flow use of CHF 3.3 million a year ago. The company provided earnings guidance for the second half and full year of 2014. In view especially of brisk growth in the systems business, the board of directors and executive committee are predicting a stronger second half of 2014 compared to the first six months of the year. For the full year 2014, the group is slightly raising the existing sales forecast to between CHF 275 million and CHF 295 million. The board and executive management expect to further boost the return on capital employed year-over-year, and thus remain committed to the planned investment in the strategic growth initiatives. The strong Swiss franc will mean an easing in the EBITDA margin to between 13% and 14%. In absolute terms, EBITDA operating earnings are expected to come in slightly above the prior year’s and net income is also predicted to grow.
