GfK SE Announces the Payment of Dividend, Payable on May 29, 2015

GfK SE announced the payment of dividend of EUR 0.65 per share. The dividend shall be distributed on May 29, 2015.

GfK Group Announces Consolidated Earnings Results for the Year 2014; Provides Group Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015 and 2016

GfK Group announced consolidated earnings results for the year 2014. For the period, the company reported sales were EUR 1,453 million, down 2.8% year-on- year compared to EUR 1,495 million a year ago. Adjusted operating income was EUR 178.8 million, slightly below previous year's value of EUR 190.4 million adjusted for a one-off Swiss pension plan effect of EUR 10.1 million. This positive income level was achieved despite declining sales through continuous improvements in operating performance, which more than offset investments in new products and services as well as the transformation of company. Cash flow from operating activity improved by 20% to EUR 196.9 million. The company's consolidated total income improved to EUR 19.4 million compared to EUR 42.1 million a year ago. This is primarily due to a decrease in goodwill impairment in 2014. A year-on-year increase of EUR 6.5 million in expenses related to tax disputes in Turkey. Tax improvements in France and the USA. Overall tax expenses were reduced by EUR 18 million in 2014. The positive impact of EUR 10.1 million on operating income from the conversion of a pension plan in Switzerland in 2013. The group anticipates a return to modest organic growth in 2015. Adjusted operating income should improve and the margin should rise to somewhere in the range of 12.4% to 12.8%. The capital expenditure investment level will remain on a similar level as in the previous year. A further decline in sales is also possible. It is anticipated that the margin will continue to rise modestly. The group is aiming to outpace the market in 2016 in terms of organic growth. The company is still aiming for a margin of between 14% and 15% for 2016.
