H&R AG Reports Preliminary Unaudited Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year of 2014

H&R AG reported preliminary unaudited earnings results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2014. For the quarter, the company reported sales revenues stood at EUR 252.3 million, or 7.7% lower than in the prior-year period (fourth quarter of 2013 at EUR 273.3 million). Due to the rapid and sharp fall in the price of crude oil at the end of 2014, and as a result of the several weeks' long production run, there was a substantial increase in the relative material expenses ratio. EBITDA therefore dropped 32.3%, from EUR 9.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 to EUR 6.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. Loss before taxes fell to EUR 5.4 million compared to EUR 0.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Consolidated income after taxes decreased significantly by EUR 11.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, from EUR -2.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 to EUR -13.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. Operating cash flow tripled in the fourth quarter of 2014 to EUR 18.0 million compared to EUR 5.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Free cash flow also increased substantially, from EUR 2.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 to EUR 10.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. For the year, the company reported, sales revenue was EUR 1,058.6 million a decline of around 13% compared to the previous year sales revenue of EUR 1,214.4 million. The main factor behind the decline is the crude oil price, which was averagely lower than in the previous year and shows a high correlation of sales. Because production and sold quantities were comparable, revenues decreased. The preliminary operating result (EBITDA) for the year under review totaled EUR 31.5 million compared to EUR 32.6 million in 2013, meaning that it was within the projected range published in December 2014. The change in EBIT was quite positive; compared to the previous year it rose by EUR 9.9 million to EUR 5.8 million (2013: negative EUR 4.1 million). The trend was similar for earnings before taxes (EBT), which increased by EUR 9.0 million from negative EUR 16.8 million in 2013 to negative EUR 7.8 million in 2014. Consolidated loss after minorities totaled EUR 15.4 million compared to negative EUR 14.0 million in 2013, below the level of financial year 2013 due to the impact of deferred taxes. Operating cash flow dropped from EUR 88.9 million to negative EUR 0.4 million and free cash flow fell from EUR 72.8 million to negative EUR 10.5 million.

H&R AG Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2014

H&R AG provided earnings guidance for the year 2014. In H&R Aktiengesellschaft's opinion at this time, the company - due to the extremely fast fallen crude oil prices -will not be able to realize its latest earnings forecast (EBITDA) for the year 2014. Pursuant to the rapidly declining oil prices the company's result will be significantly burdened in the fourth quarter of 2014. Assuming a stabilization of crude oil quotations at the current level, and based on current knowledge, the Management Board expects this effect on earnings to burden operating profits in fourth quarter 2014 up to a high single-digit millions amount, despite good sales figures and adequate margins on products which have already been sold. Accordingly, the Board believes that the above-mentioned negative effect will exceed the expected good operating performance of H&R AG. The projected EBITDA "significantly above the previous year's figure" of EUR 32.6 million, is - based on the recent status - no longer accessible. The Management Board rather expects, based on the previous assumptions, that EBITDA for the full year 2014 will be approximately in the range between EUR 29 million to EUR 33 million. With stable crude oil prices without the extreme direction of the last few months and a stable global economic environment, the Board expects the company to show a solid earnings development in the next few months.
