Bucher Hydraulics Reports Earnings Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2014

Bucher Hydraulics reported earnings results for the year ended December 31, 2014. For the year, the company reported net sales of CHF 475.4 million against CHF 453.3 million a year ago. Operating profit (EBITDA) was CHF 68.4 million against CHF 61.6 million a year ago. Operating profit (EBIT) was CHF 48.5 million against CHF 42.4 million a year ago. The various market segments served by Bucher Hydraulics developed along different lines, but on the whole the trend was positive. Demand in the European markets was buoyant at the beginning of the reporting year, but fell back slightly towards the end of the year. North America profited from positive momentum, whereas in China the market remained at a low level. The division can look back on a gratifying business performance over the year as a whole, with increases in both order intake and sales. The operating profit margin of 10.2% was a clear improvement on the previous year. Demand was particularly lively in the construction machinery segment, which staged a welcome recovery, above all in Europe, but also in materials handling and industrial hydraulics. Bucher Hydraulics succeeded in keeping the effects of the downturn in the key agricultural machinery segment within bounds due to its good market position and long-term serial orders.

Bucher Industries AG Reports Earnings Results for the Year December 31, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for 2015; Proposes Dividend for 2014 Payable on April 20, 2015

Bucher Industries AG reported earnings results for the year December 31, 2014. For the year, the company reported net sales of CHF 2,805.6 million against CHF 2,690.8 million a year ago. Operating profit (EBITDA) was CHF 349.8 million against CHF 371.1 million a year ago. Operating profit (EBIT) was CHF 257.2 million against CHF 287.1 million a year ago. Profit was CHF 189.7 million against CHF 196.2 million a year ago. Earnings per share were CHF 18.58 against CHF 19.64 a year ago. Net debt as at end of 2014 was CHF 85.0 million against CHF 0.1 million as at end of 2013. Operating free cash flow was CHF 53.7 million against CHF 91.7 million a year ago. Return on equity was 16.7% against 20.0% a year ago. Return on net operating assets after tax was CHF 15.8% against 19.3% a year ago. The gratifying profit for the year of CHF 190 million, which was only CHF 6 million below the record level attained the previous year, was attributable to the good operating performance, as well as to lower profits in high-tax countries and positive one-off effects from tax cases. Without taking account of the impact of currency influences since the middle of January of the current year, the group's 2015 projections are for a slight drop in sales and operating profit on a par with the 2014 level. In view of the virtually unchanged profit for the year in 2014 as well as a consistent dividend policy, the board of directors is proposing that the annual general meeting on April 14, 2015 approve payment of a dividend of CHF 6.50 per registered share, equivalent to last year's payout. All shareholders recorded in the share register on April 15, 2015 rank for dividend. The dividend will be paid out as of April 20, 2015.
