Mar 20 14
Delticom AG reported consolidated earnings results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2013. For the quarter, the company reported that after a decline in the European tyre replacement business in the first nine months, the winter tyre business failed to pull off the hoped-for turnaround at the end of the year. Despite the mild winter weather, Delticom succeeded in increasing sales year on year in the final quarter. Overall, Delticom generated sales of EUR 196.5 million in the fourth quarter compared to EUR 175.9 million last year. Of this amount, EUR 17.8 million in sales were received through the Tirendo shops. With this result, Tirendo already contributed significantly to Delticom's sales growth in the fourth quarter of 2013. EBIT saw a decline of 46.2 %, from prior-year's EUR 15.1 million to EUR 8.1 million or 4.1 % of revenues. LBIT of Tirendo in fourth quarter was EUR 5.8 million. Excluding not only Tirendo and all expenses and depreciations incurred in connection with the takeover in 2013 but also excluding those extraordinary expenses incurred in the old Group, Delticom would have achieved EUR 15.1 million of EBIT in fourth quarter of 2013, compared with EUR 15.4 million in fourth quarter of 2012. In relation to fourth-quarter revenues of EUR 178.6 million (excluding Tirendo, fourth quarter of 2012: EUR 175.9 million), Delticom achieved an 8.4 % EBIT margin before extraordinary expenses in the fourth quarter compared to 8.8 % last year.
For the year, the company reported that in a difficult market environment the company generated revenues of EUR 505.5 million compared to EUR 456.4 million last year. As in previous years, revenue growth was predominantly driven by an increasing willingness among customers to buy online. In E-Commerce core segment, revenues came in at EUR 493.1 million, up 11.7 % year on year from EUR 441.4 million. EBITDA for the reporting period came down by 37.2 % from EUR 35.3 million to EUR 22.2 million. EBIT amounted to EUR 17.8 million compared to EUR 32.6 million last year. This equates to an EBIT margin of 3.5 % compared to 7.1 % last year. Depreciations on intangible assets identified as part of the Tirendo takeover burdened EBIT by EUR 1.5 million in the period under review. Delticom excluding Tirendo, assuming that in 2013 the takeover of Tirendo had not occurred, and consequently also that no related audit occurred in the financial year elapsed, the old Group would have generated revenues of EUR 484.8 million compared to EUR 456.4 million last year and an EBIT of EUR 26.3 million compared to EUR 32.6 million last year, reflecting an 5.4 % EBIT margin, compared with 7.1 % in the previous year. Consolidated net income for 2013 decreased from EUR 22.2 million to EUR 11.6 million. Despite this drop of 47.9 % business model has once again proven its resilience. Earnings per share were EUR 0.97 compared to EUR 1.87 a year ago.
For 2014, the company anticipates a revenues increase of 10 % for the current financial year. In terms of overall earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA), it aims to be at least on par with the financial year 2013.
The company also announced that the Management Board and Supervisory Board will propose a dividend of EUR 0.50 per share (2012: EUR 1.90), at the Annual General Meeting on to be held on April 29, 2014.
