Franz Haniel & Cie. GMBH Key Developments

Franz Haniel & Cie. GMBH Announces Group Earnings Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

Franz Haniel & Cie. GMBH announced group earnings results for the year ended December 31, 2014. For the year, the company posted a significant increase in revenue, rising 10% to EUR 3,944 million. Adjusted for business combinations and disposals as well as currency translation effects, the Group increased revenue by 8%. This was attributable to the encouraging revenue trend at the ELG division, which was able to significantly increase its output tonnage in 2014 due to increased demand for stainless steel products and superalloys. Operating profit increased by 31% from EUR 166 million to EUR 217 million. This was attributable in particular to ELG's considerable gains, but also to the positive business development at TAKKT. Despite significantly higher operating profit, profit before taxes declined from EUR 117 million in the previous year to EUR 31 million. This was due to the fact that the high operating profit offset decreases in the investment result and the result from financing activities. For the 2015 financial year, the group expects that its profit before taxes will increase significantly. Moreover, it expects the group to generate revenue growth, adjusted for currency translation effects, in the single-digit percentage range.
