Heraeus Reports Financial Results for the Year 2013

Heraeus reported financial results for the year 2013. For the year, product revenue was €3,578 million against €3,979 million for the same period of last year. Precious metals trading revenue was €13,462 million against €15,989 million for the same period of last year. EBIT was €256 million against €360 million for the same period of last year. Net income was €454 million against €237 million for the same period of last year. Capital expenditures were €141 million against €126 million for the same period of last year. Heraeus had total product revenue was 10% less than in 2012. However, this outcome was greatly influenced by precious metals price effects. Adjusted for these effects, revenues for 2013 show a slight increase, up by 2% over the previous year. Weak industrial demand for platinum, gold and silver pulled precious metals trading revenue down. Operating results fell by 29% mainly attributable to continued stagnation in the photovoltaics market, one-time effects of restructuring measures, and expenditures for the IT-based Magellan process harmonization program. By contrast, the annual result for the Heraeus Group was distinctly positive, reflects proceeds from the sale of the Heraeus Dental business group during the past financial year.
