OSRAM GmbH Key Developments
OSRAM GmbH Announces Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended December 2014; Confirms Earnings Guidance for the Full Year of Fiscal 2015
Feb 4 15
OSRAM GmbH announced earnings results for the first quarter ended December 2014. The company recorded a strong operating performance in the first quarter of the current fiscal year that started in October 2014. With growth of 0.5%, revenue was slightly above the year-earlier period on a comparable basis, i.e. excluding portfolio and currency effects. In nominal terms, the company even recorded a revenue increase of 5% to almost €1.4 billion, resulting from the weakness of the euro against key currencies and the acquisition of Clay Paky. EBITA excluding special items rose 23% to €151 million in the first quarter, translating into a margin of 10.8%. This development was once again supported by positive effects from the transformation program, productivity improvements as well as the ongoing good performance of the Opto Semiconductors and Specialty Lighting segments. On reported basis, Osram in contrast recorded an EBITA loss of €41 million. The figure includes transformation costs of €184 million, which are in particular related to the already communicated headcount adjustments in Germany. The quarterly loss after tax was €39 million. In view of the development in the first quarter, Osram confirms the outlook for fiscal 2015.
The company confirmed the outlook given at the beginning of fiscal 2015. For fiscal 2015, the company expects revenues to be on the level of fiscal 2014 on a comparable basis. The adjusted EBITA margin is also expected to be at the prior-year level. In addition, the company expects both net income and return on capital employed (ROCE) to decrease sharply in the current fiscal year due to a sharp increase in transformation costs. Free cash flow is expected to come in with a positive triple-digit million euro amount in fiscal 2015 but to stay below the prior-year level.
Osram Expands Portfolio of Automotive Lamps
Oct 3 14
Osram GmbH has expanded its portfolio of automotive lamps. From September there will be Limited Edition H4 and H7 lamps with improved luminous efficacy and a special design. These exclusive lamps are equipped with a silver reflector cap which is completely new in the Osram portfolio. With a special progressive coating, that provides the xenon look, they produce up to 30% more light on the road compared with standard halogen lamps. The Cool Blue Intense based on halogen has a color temperature of up to 4200 kelvin, making it currently the automotive lamp with the bluest color temperature approved for road use by the Economic Commission for Europe (ECE). The special color and up to 20% more light on the road than conventional halogen lamps improve contrast perception. Drivers can therefore more easily see other road users, road markings and obstacles. Xenon lamps are based on the principle of high-intensity discharge. The Xenarc Cool Blue Intense lamps from Osram offer maximum light output at up to 5500 kelvin. This high color temperature gives the light a balanced blue tone and illuminates the road as if in natural daylight. The characteristic color is achieved by a special gas mixture and not by a colored outer bulb. In this way the light output can be increased by around 20%. A blue ceramic tube is used to distinguish it from Xenarc Original lamps. The Xenarc Cool Blue Intense is available now in D3S and D4S versions in addition to the D1S and D2S versions.
Osram Launches OLEDs for Car Interiors
Oct 3 14
OSRAM GmbH has launched new organic light emitting diodes, or OLEDs, for car interiors in the form of a new reading lamp. The OLED Reading Light consists of a high-quality matt aluminum housing and provides a very warm and uniform light. With a color temperature of 3300 kelvin the light is very warm, and the brightness of the OLED panel is continuously variable. The OLED Reading Light has been optimized for use in a car and can be recharged via a USB cable. It is therefore available at all times as a light source. An indicator at the USB port shows the battery charge status. A clip at the back of the Reading Light enables it to be easily attached to the sun visor for example. The OLED Reading Light is far superior to conventional light sources such as incandescent and halogen lamps in terms of energy efficiency and lamp life.
