kion group ag (KGX) Key Developments

The KION Group Reports Preliminary Unaudited Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year of 2014

The KION Group reported preliminary, unaudited earnings results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2014. The preliminary, unaudited results show that the KION Group achieved significant year-on-year improvements in the fourth quarter of 2014. The company’s revenue was advanced by 10.8% to EUR 1.306 billion. At EUR 134.2 million, the EBIT had improved by 16.1% compared with the final three months of 2013. As a result, the EBIT margin climbed from 9.8% to 10.3%, a record level for a quarter. The company’s revenue improved by 4.1% to EUR 4.678 billion in 2014, while earnings before interest and tax climbed by 6.3% to EUR 442.9 million. With the EBIT margin reaching 9.5%, the group exceeded its very good prior-year profitability figure of 9.3%. Due to the strength of the core market in western EUR ope, combined with strong growth in Asia and eastern EUR ope, the KION Group's new truck unit orders rose by 8.5% in 2014 according to preliminary figures. Net income is expected to advance to approximately EUR 175 million, compared to EUR 138.4 million in 2013. This was attributable to a record EBIT figure plus significantly lower finance costs as a consequence of the IPO in 2013 and various refinancing activities. Free cash flow increased to approximately EUR 300 million compared to EUR 195.6 million a year ago. In the forecast for 2014 published in its 2013 group management report, the KION Group had predicted a slight increase in both its order intake and its consolidated revenue compared with 2013. The company had anticipated a significant year-on-year rise in adjusted EBIT and an increase in the adjusted EBIT margin. Free cash flow was expected to be considerably higher in 2014 than in the previous year. All of these forecasts have clearly been achieved by the record results for 2014.
