BASF Reports Earnings Results for the First Quarter of 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year of 2015

BASF reported earnings results for the first quarter ended March 2015. For the quarter, sales in the first quarter increased by 3% to EUR 20.1 billion. The company saw an 8% price decline following the sharp drop in the oil price. This was nearly offset by pronounced positive currency effects. EBITDA slightly declined by 2% to EUR 2.9 billion. EBIT decreased by 10% to EUR 2.0 billion due to negative special items of EUR 75 million, which include a provision of about EUR 100 million for the anniversary bonus company paid to employees. Income taxes grew by 6% to EUR 543 million. Adjusted earnings per share amounted to EUR 1.43 in First Quarter 2015 versus EUR 1.63 a year ago. The company generated a strong operating cash flow of EUR 2.4 billion, exceeding the previous year's level by almost EUR 650 million. Free cash flow reached EUR 1.1 billion compared to EUR 800 million in First Quarter of 2014. Cash provided by operating activities was EUR 2.4 billion in the first quarter of this year, an increase of almost EUR 650 million versus the first quarter 2014. net profit declined by 19.8% to EUR 1.174 billion. Underlying or operating profit declined by 10.2% to EUR 1.995 billion. For the year 2015, the company expects continue to grow volumes and sales in 2015. Sales will likely be slightly higher than in 2014, mainly driven by higher sales in Functional Materials & Solutions and Performance Products segments.
