heidelberger druckmaschinen (HDD) Key Developments

Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG Announces Earnings Results for the Year Ended March 31, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Fiscal 2015 and 2016

Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG announced earnings results for the year ended March 31, 2014. The net profit for financial year 2013/2014 (April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014) was EUR 4 million against loss of EUR 117 million in the previous year. The next step is to secure the Group's sustained profitability in the years ahead by expanding growth segments, implementing portfolio measures and introducing structural cost projects. EBITDA excluding special items rose to EUR 143 million in the financial year just closed against EUR 80 million in the previous year. This led to a net profit for the year of EUR 4 million against loss of EUR 117 million in the previous year. The net debt at the end of the financial year was EUR 238 million (previous year: EUR 261 million). The company plans to improve result in financial year 2014/2015 - target EBITDA margin of no less than 8% in financial year 2015/2016. Heidelberg is expecting to match the sales achieved in the reporting year in the current financial year 2014/2015. As in the previous year, sales are once again expected to be higher in the second half of the financial year than in the first. Having succeeded, as forecast, in achieving a positive annual result in reporting year 2013/2014, the declared goal for financial year 2014/2015 is to further improve the company's profitability in order to get closer to the medium-term objective of an operating margin of no less than 8% in terms of EBITDA and improve the result after taxes in spite of the higher level of interest expense for financial liabilities. The extent of the improvement in the current financial year 2014/2015 will essentially depend on the realizability and timing of the portfolio optimization measures that represent the strategic focus from this year onward. Provided the initiatives to improve the margin and optimize the portfolio are successfully implemented in the current financial year, the company expects to be able to achieve a margin of no less than 8% EBITDA on sales by financial year 2015/2016. The planned earnings improvements, combined with the measures to reduce or efficiently use the tied-up capital, should strengthen the capital structure and keep the net financial debt at a low level. This will create the conditions required to optimize the financial result as targeted.
