Clariant AG Announces Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year of 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

Clariant announced earnings results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2014. For the fourth quarter, the company reported sales of CHF 1,586 million against CHF 1,563 million a year ago. EBITDA before exceptional items was CHF 232 million against CHF 235 million a year ago. EBIT before exceptional items was CHF 159 million against CHF 157 million a year ago. EBIT was CHF 234 million against CHF 93 million a year ago. Net result from continuing operations was CHF 133 million against CHF 85 million a year ago. Net income was CHF 132 million against CHF 80 million a year ago. Operating cash flow was CHF 321 million against CHF 261 million a year ago. Net income from continuing operations increased mainly due to the gain on a land sale in India, which overcompensated higher taxes in fourth quarter of 2014 compared with the previous year. On an adjusted EPS basis, earnings were fairly stable at CHF 0.3 compared to CHF 0.32 in the previous year. For the year, the company reported full-year sales from continuing operations of CHF 6.116 billion compared to CHF 6.076 billion in full-year 2013, an increase of 5% in local currencies, mainly driven by higher volumes (+4%). Swiss francs sales were increased by 1%. EBITDA before exceptional items was CHF 867 million against CHF 858 million a year ago. EBIT before exceptional items was CHF 585 million against CHF 574 million a year ago. EBIT was CHF 525 million against CHF 470 million a year ago. Net result from continuing operations was CHF 235 million against CHF 323 million a year ago, mainly due to favorable one-time tax benefit in 2013. Net income was CHF 217 million against CHF 5 million a year ago. Operating cash flow was CHF 334 million against CHF 301 million a year ago. Net debt was reduced to CHF 1.263 billion from CHF 1.500 billion recorded at year-end 2013. For 2015, the company expects low to mid-single digit sales growth in local currencies. In light of the volatile economic conditions, the company currently does not anticipate achieving its mid-term EBITDA margin target in 2015. However, the company will further increase its EBITDA margin before exceptional items above full-year 2014 and increase cash flow generation. The company confirms its mid-term target to achieve a position in the top tier of the specialty chemicals industry. This corresponds to an EBITDA margin before exceptional items range of 16% to 19% and a return on invested capital above peer group average in 2015 and beyond.
