In the current financial year, the group has been confronted with very difficult framework conditions, especially due to the ongoing CIS crisis. In light of this, for the outlook for 2015, the Executive Board expects to be able to achieve slight growth in Group sales adjusted for currency and portfolio effects. Due to the development of the Russian ruble and increased risks in connection with consumer mood and the general market situation, however, it anticipates a decreased earnings contribution from Russia. Taking these developments into account and based on currency relations at the time the preliminary outlook was published, the Executive Board expects a substantial decrease in adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income. The Executive Board expects the ratio of net debt excluding further acquisitions to adjusted EBITDA to be at a level of nearly 3 in 2015. For the full year the company expects tax rate between 24% and 26%.
