Success for CENTROTEC with internationalisation; revenue and earnings up on previous year

Brilon, May 11, 2017: The first quarter of the 2017 financial year saw the CENTROTEC Group increase its revenue by 9.2% to EUR 137.3 million (previous year EUR 125.8 million), underpinned by a healthy upturn in international business. This growth was promoted by the fact that the Easter public holidays occurred in April in 2017. The EBITDA operating result of EUR 9.8 million was 11.6% up on the prior‑year figure of EUR 8.8 million and EBIT came to EUR 3.8 million (previous year EUR 3.0 million / up 26.0%).

Revenue and earnings increased according to plan

Brilon, August 11, 2016: The first half of 2016 year saw the CENTROTEC Group increase its revenue by 6.2 % to EUR 263.9 million (previous year EUR 248.5 million). Organic growth, to which all three corporate segments contributed, amounted to 3.0 percent. Growth was slightly stronger in the second quarter than in the opening three months of the year. The first-half operating result at EBITDA level was up 2.7 % at EUR 20.3 million (previous year EUR 19.8 million). As a result of slightly higher depreciation and amortisation, EBIT was up 1.5 % at EUR 8.6 million (previous year EUR 8.4 million). The elevated reference figure for the previous year as a result of positive foreign exchange effects meant that the group’s earnings growth was generated in the second quarter. Constant net interest and a slightly lower effective tax rate led to first-half earnings per share of EUR 0.23 (previous year EUR 0.23).

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.
