Akzo Nobel NV Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year of 2014; Reaffirms Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

Akzo Nobel NV announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2014. For the quarter, the company reported revenue was €3,517 million compared to €3,482 million for the same period a year ago. Revenue up 1%, with 2% favorable currency effects offset by 1% lower volumes. Operating income excluding incidentals was €169 million compared to €55 million a year ago, up 207% due to improved operational performance and lower restructuring charges. Adjusted EPS was €0.33 compared to €0.01 for the same period a year ago. Operating income was €83 million compared to €116 million for the same period a year ago. EBITDA was €330 million compared to €208 million for the same period a year ago. Net income attributable to shareholders was €7 million compared to €51 million for the same period a year ago. Net cash from operating activities was more than 50% higher at €481 million for the quarter. Capital expenditures were lower than fourth quarter 2013 by 21%. For the full year, the company reported revenue was €14,296 million compared to €14,590 million for the same period a year ago. Operating income excluding incidental items was €1,072 million compared to €897 million for the same period a year ago. Operating income was €987 million up 3%, due to higher operating results and lower restructuring charges, offset by adverse incidental items. Adjusted EPS was €2.81 compared to €2.62 for the same period a year ago. Net income attributable to shareholders was €546 million compared to €724 million for the same period a year ago. Net cash inflow from operating activities €811 million compared to €716 million for the same period a year ago. EBITDA was €1,690 million compared to €1,513 million for the same period a year ago. Operating income excluding incidentals grew 20%, reflecting higher benefits from ongoing operational efficiency programs and lower restructuring charges, offset by higher adverse incidental items. Contrary to positive incidental items of €61 million in 2013, mainly related to gain on divestments, the negative incidental items of €85 million in 2014 relate to provisions for legacy items, an external fraud suffered by one of subsidiaries in the US, and project costs related to a divestment. Revenue declined 2%, with volume up 1% in all Business Areas, more than offset by negative currency effects and divestments. The company anticipated that significant developments in raw material prices, combined with relevant exchange rate movements and lower growth rates in high growth economies, will principally determine the dynamics of 2015. The preparations made during 2013 and 2014 will form a sound basis for further improvements in 2015. It remains on track to achieve its targets for 2015.

Akzo Nobel Seeks Acquisitions

Ton Buechner, Chief Executive Officer of Akzo Nobel NV (ENXTAM:AKZA) said, "If I look at M&A, your third question, we've always said if there's nice bolt-on acquisitions we will certainly have a look at them, so that they're never off the cards. What people should not expect or what is not our focus is the multi-billion-dollar acquisitions that people have asked us about in the past. So we will continue to look at bolt-ons. We've always done so. And if there's a suitable one we will certainly not refrain from having a detailed study of it".
