Axel Springer AG Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the Year 2013; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2014

Axel Springer AG reported consolidated earnings results for the year 2013. For the period, the company reported total net income was down by 11.6% from EUR 276 million to EUR 244 million. Net income from continuing operations was down slightly less from EUR 191 million to EUR 179 million, despite EBITDA being down by EUR 44 million. EBITDA financial results as well as lower depreciation from purchase price allocations are the main factors here. Adjusted for purchase price allocation effects and non-operating effects, net income for continuing operations was down 11% to EUR 230 million. Net debt at the end of 2013 stood at EUR 471 million. Total revenues from continuing operations rose by 2.3% to EUR 2,801.4 million compared to EUR 2,737.3 million a year ago. Adjusted for consolidation and currency effects, total revenues were slightly higher (0.2%) than the corresponding prior-year figure. This positive development can be credited in large part to the performance of the Classified Ad Models segment, which reported strong revenue growth of about 22%. The Marketing Models segment also generated considerable revenue growth of 8.1%. Due to lower revenues in the print media business, the revenues of the Paid Models segment were about 3.9% less than the corresponding prior-year figure. Adjusted for non-recurring effects and purchase price allocation effects, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) from continuing operations came out below the level of the prior year, as expected. It amounted to EUR 454.3 million, reflecting a decrease of 8.9% from the prior-year figure of EUR 498.8 million. This development was particularly influenced by the higher expenditures for restructuring measures in the print business and by the investments made to accelerate the digitization of the Group’s business. The company provided earnings guidance for the year 2014. For the year, group expects a mid single-digit increase in revenues and a low double-digit growth in EBITDA and adjusted EPS.
