Forbo Holding AG Reports Earnings Results for 2014; Provides Financial Guidance for 2015

Forbo Holding AG reported earnings results for 2014. For the period, the company reported net sales of CHF 1,226.8 million against CHF 1,199.7 million a year ago. Operating profit (EBIT) was CHF 149.4 against CHF 135.7 million a year ago. Group profit from continuing operations was CHF 123.4 against CHF 110.2 million a year ago. Group profit was CHF 123.6 against CHF 117.6 million a year ago. Earnings per share from continuing operations (undiluted) was CHF 61.92 against CHF 53.21 a year ago. The company again anticipates an increase in sales and profitability in local currencies in 2015. However, sales and profit in the corporate currency will be eroded once the local results are translated into Swiss francs. Forbo has therefore taken a number of additional measures so that it can offset these currency effects by an even better operational performance. Barring any change in the foreign exchange situation, the company anticipates to generate a Group profit from continuing operations in 2015 that is at the same level as in the previous year.

Operating profit was CHF 65.3 million compared to CHF 58.2 million last year. Group profit before taxes was CHF 67.4 million compared to CHF 59.1 million last year. Group profit from continuing operations was CHF 53.6 million or CHF 26.33 per diluted share compared to CHF 47.8 million or CHF 23.19 per basic and diluted share last year. Group profit was CHF 53.8 million or CHF 26.44 per diluted share compared to CHF 47.8 million or CHF 23.19 per basic and diluted share last year. Cash flow from operating activities was CHF 1.7 million compared to cash used in operating activities of CHF 2.2 million last year. Operating profit before depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) came to CHF 83.2 million compared to CHF 76.6 million last year, corresponding to an increase of 8.6%. Barring any significant change in the current economic conditions, especially with regard to exchange rates and raw material prices, the company expects a slight increase in net sales and once again somewhat higher group profit from continuing operations for the full 2014 business year compared with the previous year.
