Highlight Communications AG Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Full Year of 2015

Highlight Communications AG reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015. For the quarter, sales were CHF 126.7 million against CHF 216.3 million a year ago. Sales were down on the previous year's level, mainly due to lower sales in the Film segment. This decline reflects the fact that, in contrast to the previous year, no international Constantin Film production was released in the first half of 2015. In addition, the Film segment had benefited in the previous year from extremely high sales figures in home entertainment exploitation. Net profit for the period was CHF 0.6 million against CHF 5.9 million a year ago. Net profit attributable to shareholders was CHF 0.8 million against CHF 5.6 million a year ago. Earnings per share were CHF 0.02 million against CHF 0.13 million a year ago. Consolidated net profit for the period, which was affected by the significant rise in financial expenses among other factors, amounted to CHF 0.6 million (previous year's period: CHF 5.9 million). This pronounced decline was mainly attributable to the change in the EUR/CHF currency relation as described above. EBIT was CHF 7.2 million against CHF 9.7 million a year ago. The company is continuing to forecast consolidated sales of between CHF 310 million and CHF 330 million and a consolidated net profit for the period attributable to shareholders of between CHF 14 million and CHF 16 million for the Group in 2015 as a whole.
