L. Possehl & Co. MbH Key Developments

Possehl Reports Preliminary Consolidated Earnings Results for the Year 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

Possehl reported preliminary consolidated earnings results for the year 2014. For the year, the company's net sales rose 16% in the last fiscal year to a record level of €3.3 billion. However, at approximately €125 million, consolidated net operating profit was slightly lower compared to the previous year. The sharp increase in sales was mainly due to the Company's business in precious metals, primarily gold. Excluding precious metal sales, group net sales came to €2.1 billion, representing a sales growth of 7%. Consolidated net operating profit before taxes fell 4% from the previous year to around €125 million, due also to nonrecurring expenses. The company expects its sales and earnings to increase moderately in the coming fiscal year 2015. This should happen by means of both internal growth and further Company acquisitions, in particular German SMEs.
