CENTROTEC with slight growth in revenue and earnings – outlook for 2016 cautiously optimistic

Brilon, January 28, 2016: CENTROTEC Sustainable AG, Brilon, generated revenue of EUR 548 million in the 2015 financial year (unaudited, previous year EUR 530.5 million). This slightly betters the most recent forecast of a corridor of EUR 540 to 545 million. Based on the provisional unaudited calculations, the prior-year level of the operating result (EBIT) of EUR 31.0 million will likewise be just exceeded.

CENTROTEC expects the mild growth trend to continue in the 2016 financial year. A steady development in the core market Germany and growth in most international markets in Europe are taking shape. We base this forecast on a fundamentally positive development of the overall economic and regulatory environment. The development in energy prices is difficult to forecast.

Brilon, March 11, 2015: Wolf, the heating and climate control technology specialist that is a member company of CENTROTEC Sustainable AG, is taking over the Croatian climate control and ventilation equipment manufacturer PRO-KLIMA d.o.o..

Brilon, January 30, 2015: According to provisional calculations CENTROTEC Sustainable AG, Brilon, expects to achieve its revenue target for 2014 with consolidated revenue reaching around EUR 531 million.

CENTROTEC does not expect any significant easing of the unsatisfactory environment in the current 2015 financial year.
