Comet Holding AG, H1 2015 Earnings Call, Aug 20, 2015

Comet Holding AG, H1 2015 Earnings Call, Aug 20, 2015

Comet Holding AG Reports Group Earnings Results for the First Half of 2015; Reaffirms Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015 and Provides Earnings Guidance for the Second Half of 2015

Comet Holding AG reported group earnings results for the first half of 2015. The results were also affected by the strong Swiss franc. At group level, sales eased by 1.9% to CHF 130.1 million against CHF 132.6 million a year ago. Before the effects of currency translation (­1.6%) and the acquisition of PCT Engineered Systems LLC (+2.4%), sales were 2.7% lower than a year ago. However, new orders in the first six months were up 4% year-over-year. The company boosted its EBITDA profitability by 15% to CHF 12.3 million against CHF 10.7 million a year ago, due to a 6% reduction in operating costs. Net debt increased modestly as a result of the acquisition of PCT Engineered Systems, but remained low in absolute terms at just CHF 20.4 million. To reflect new circumstances ­ updated exchange rates of 0.95 Swiss francs per US dollar and CHF 1.06 per euro, the acquisition of PCT Engineered Systems and the current economic environment ­ the COMET Group is slightly raising its expectations for the full year 2015. For fiscal year 2015 the management and Board of Directors thus now assume sales of between CHF 290 million and CHF 310 million, and an EBITDA margin of 13.5% to 14.5%. As previously announced, net income this year will be lower than last year as a result of the absence of a non-recurring positive tax effect of CHF 6.1 million recorded in 2014, combined with one-time currency translation losses of CHF 3.5 million in 2015. The company's outlook for the second half of 2015 is strong and profitable.

The COMET Group Invests in Expanding Production at its Swiss Headquarters in Flamatt

The COMET Group has submitted the building application for an extension at its headquarters in Flamatt, canton of Fribourg. With this construction work, the company will extend its heavily utilized production capacities and create the basis for further planned growth. With its investment of around CHF 60 million, the company is choosing to focus on its Swiss site. The company is developing its innovative core components based on X-ray, high-frequency and e-beam technology at its headquarters in Flamatt. As a result of its strong growth in recent years, the company in Flamatt has reached the limits of its production capacity. In order to create new space, particularly for the X-ray and e-beam business, and to facilitate the strong growth envisaged for the future, the company decided to build an extension at its Flamatt site. This will almost double its currently available space, from 20,000 to 37,300 square meters, and as a longer-term consideration create the workplace for more than 250 additional employees. The building application was submitted on 30 July 2015. The construction work is scheduled to start in April 2016, and the new buildings with the additional production cells are expected to be ready for use by the end of 2017. The cost of the building work is estimated at CHF 60 million.
