Mersen S.A. Million €6 Million Contract

Mersen S.A. announced the signing of a contract worth over 6 million for the supply of graphite heat exchangers. This order is destined to equip a new phosphoric acid production unit in the Persian Gulf. In 2015, Mersen will deliver 13 tubular graphite heat exchangers (Polytubes®), each comprised of 1000 six- meter-long tubes. Measuring a record 6 meters in length without joints, these tubes offer reinforced reliability for a highly corrosive and abrasive procedure. This characteristic was a crucial factor in securing the contract. The Group was chosen by Hanwha Engineering & Construction awarded as Engineering Procurement Construction contractor. This unit will be an integral part of the phosphate product industrial complex which will be developed near a phosphate mine located in northern Saudi Arabia. Phosphoric acid is mainly used in the production of fertilizer.

Mersen S.A. Announces Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Half Year Ended June 30, 2014; Provides Financial Guidance for the Second Half of 2014

Mersen S.A. announced consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and half year ended June 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported sales of EUR 182 million compared to EUR 190.5 million a year ago. For the period, the company reported consolidated sales of EUR 362.1 million compared to EUR 377.0 million a year ago. Operating income before non-recurring items was EUR 29.8 million compared to EUR 30.6 million a year ago. Operating income was EUR 6.6 million compared to EUR 25.6 million a year ago. Net loss from continuing operations was EUR 1.3 million compared to net income from continuing operations of EUR 13.7 million a year ago. Net income attributable to group equity holders was EUR 0.2 million compared to EUR 11.5 million a year ago. EBITDA was EUR 47.5 million compared to EUR 51 million a year ago. Net cash from continuing operations was EUR 12.3 million compared to EUR 16.8 million a year ago. Capital expenditure was EUR 11.3 million compared to EUR 12.1 million a year ago. Free cash flow was EUR 1 million compared to EUR 4.7 million a year ago. Net debt as of June 30, 2014 was EUR 222.7 million an increase of EUR 11 million compared with the end of 2013 including the purchase of a majority stake in Cirprotec,. The company still expects the second half of the year to be better than the first: the Americas are expected to enjoy more positive conditions and the electronics business to continue growing; in addition, sales for the solar market are expected to be higher than those from last year, as expected. However, the Group must also take into account the fact that the chemicals business is unlikely to recover by the end of the year, given the low level of orders registered in the first half. As a result, Mersen believes that its targets for the year, namely slight growth in sales at constant scope and exchange rates and in operating margin before non-recurring items are achievable but more challenging. The Group also continues to roll out Transform, in line with the initial plan. The estimated cost of this plan is about 30 million over the full year; ultimately, it should improve the Group's operational efficiency and competitiveness prompting an increase in its operating margin before non-recurring items of about 1.5 points (on a level of business comparable with 2013).
