Billabong International Limited Reports Earnings Results for the First Half Ended December 31, 2016; Reaffirms Earnings Guidance for the Fiscal 2017

Billabong International Limited reported earnings results for the first half ended December 31, 2016. The company reported sales revenue of AUD 508.3 million, EBITDA of AUD 18.8 million, EBIT of AUD 4.2 million, less before tax of AUD 12.2 million, net loss attributable to members of AUD 16.1 million. Net cash inflow from operating activities was AUD 27.3 million against AUD 12.3 million a year ago. Payments for capex were AUD 12.1 million against AUD 22.1 million a year ago. Net debt increased from AUD 185.2 million as at 30 June 2016 to AUD 186.1 million, the increase includes payment in kind interest of AUD 8.3 million for the period. Group EBITDA of AUD 29.3 million affected by factors in APAC & Europe: unseasonal weather in Australia led to a soft start through October, last of the adverse APAC currency impacts from low AUD, unusual drop in orders by Middle East distributor as inventory levels reset and late arrival of cooler weather affected European sales. The group's previous guidance of EBITDA in the AUD 60-65 million range for the 2017 financial year needs to be updated for the sale of Tigerlily which will be treated as a discontinued operation in the 2017 full year results. This treatment is expected to reduce the Group's continuing business EBITDA reported for the 2017 financial year by approximately AUD 8 million, which represents Tigerlily's full twelve month EBITDA contribution to the Group. Accordingly, the Group affirms the 2017 financial year EBITDA guidance provided at the AGM in November, but for the adjustment to exclude Tigerlily EBITDA for the year. This equates to an updated EBITDA range for continuing operations for the 2017 financial year of AUD 52-57 million (excluding significant items).
