Lafarge Reports Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year of 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

Lafarge reported earnings results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2014. Adjusted for these elements, EBITDA is up 8% for the year with a very strong performance in Nigeria where the company results have improved close to 20% like-for-like despite the temporary drop in prices in the fourth quarter, with a steady improvements of volumes and product mix in Algeria, with a stabilization in Egypt before the expected rebound in 2015 and a solid overall performance in East African countries. Due to the proactive implementation of its strategy, the results have exceeded its target and generated more than EUR 500 million EBITDA in 2014 compared to 2012. In spite of a volatile environment across many of its markets, the company’s EBITDA is up 5% like-for-like, year-on-year. This was notably driven by continued growth in North America where, in the U.S., the residential market is picking up considerably. And this is also driven by a solid performance in the Middle East and Africa region. Net debt now stands at EUR 9.3 billion, a further drop of 5% in 2014. Reported net income group share comes at EUR 143 million. Before merger costs, net cash from operations was almost stable at EUR 1.1 billion, despite an estimated net adverse impact of ForEx after tax of EUR 70 million, but was offset by a combination of lower restructuring costs and lower taxes spent. Net income was impacted by a number of nonrecurring items like impairments, gains on divestments, merger-related costs and newly introduced tax rate from countries such as Algeria and [indiscernible]. Excluding these one-offs, the adjusted net income is up 10% for the year 2014 versus 2013. Although the first nine months of 2014 were negatively impacted by exchange rate to the tune of EUR 92 million for the full year, the company started to see a reversal in the fourth quarter with a positive plus EUR 19 million effect on the EBITDA in the fourth quarter. The company expects an EBITDA for 2015 of between EUR 3 billion and EUR 3.2 billion before any impacts of the merger. The company expects to continue to reduce net debt on a standalone basis, bringing it down between EUR 8.5 billion and EUR 9 billion by year-end. The tax rate is expected at 34%, affected by short-term country mix and the relative impact of the limited deduction of financial interest in France. Regarding capital expenditure, the company will continue to keep them under strict control at EUR 1.1 billion.
