COMET Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the Year 2014

COMET reported consolidated earnings results for the year 2014. For the year, the company's consolidated net sales rose from CHF 249.6 million to CHF 287.9 million, surpassing the strong prior year by 15.3% (17.2% in local currencies).

Group net income rose markedly to CHF 26.3 million against CHF 16.1 million for the same period a year ago. A driving factor next to the strong sales was a one-time positive tax effect of CHF 6.1 million from the utilization and recognition of tax loss carryforwards in the USA. COMET also raised its economic profit severalfold, and significantly boosted the value of the Group: Return on capital employed went from 10.8% to 15.6%, compared to a cost of capital of 9%.
