ksb ag (KSB) Key Developments

KSB Aktiengesellschaft Reports Preliminary Revenue Results for the Year 2014; Provides EBIT Guidance for Fiscal 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for 2015

KSB Aktiengesellschaft reported preliminary revenue results for the year 2014. For 2014, the company's consolidated sales revenue was 2.8 % down on the previous year and reached a volume of €2,184.8 million against €2,247.3 million for the same period of last year. The decrease of €62.5 million was mainly due to negative currency exchange effects; in addition, sales revenue performance was affected by the sluggish order intake in the project business over the last two years. The decline in sales revenue and the continued poor profit quality in the power plant business weighed heavily on 2014 consolidated earnings before taxes (EBT). Costs incurred for restructuring measures added to the burden. Already at mid-year, therefore, the earnings forecast was corrected to between €60 and €85 million. Consolidated earnings before taxes (EBT) are expected to be in the middle of this range. In 2015, the KSB Group expects order intake and sales revenue to grow. A revival in project business involving power plant orders from China and India is expected to contribute to this growth. In addition, the new sales structure will strengthen the general business with standard products and the business with spare parts and services. KSB also considers the improvement of its cost structure to be a primary task, and restructuring measures introduced in 2014 will contribute to this. They are expected to have a positive impact already on this year’s earnings. Consolidated earnings before taxes (EBT) are expected to increase significantly again in 2015.

KSB Group Reports Revenue Results for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Full Year of 2014

KSB Group reported revenue results for the nine months ended September 30, 2014. For the period, the company reported sales revenue of EUR 1,587.8 million against EUR 1,676.6 million a year ago. This is the result of currency translation effects (EUR57 million), project postponements, and the market-induced sales revenue weak ness of GIW Industries. Consolidated earnings for the first nine months were significantly lower year on year. This is mainly attributable to the decline in sales revenue, as well as to some extent to the low margins in project business and to currency effects. The net financial position at the end of September reached the comparative prior-year figure. Based on the continued good development of orders received, annual order intake for 2014 will exceed the prior-year figure EUR 2,241.2 million. Sales revenue is expected to fall moderately short of the previous year's level EUR 2,247.3 million. As a result of lower sales revenue and current expenses for restructuring measures, earnings before income taxes will, as announced in August, be substantially lower than in 2013 EUR 119.4 million.
