The Linde Group Proposes Increased Dividend for the 2014 Financial Year; Announces Earnings Results for the Year 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

The Linde Group proposed 5.0% increase in dividend to EUR 3.15 per share for the 2014 financial year. The company announced earnings results for the year 2014. For the financial year 201, the company achieved a 2.4% increase in Group revenue to EUR 17.047 billion compared to EUR 16.655 billion. After adjusting for the negative impact of currency fluctuations, equivalent to revenue of EUR 346 million, the increase in Group revenue for the 2014 financial year was 4.5%. Linde achieved Group operating profit of EUR 3.920 billion, which was not quite as high as the prior-year figure of EUR 3.966 billion. Without these distortions, which reduced earnings in the 2014 financial year by EUR 83 million, Linde would have achieved an increase in Group operating profit of 1.0%. Linde achieved earnings per share in the 2014 financial year of EUR 5.94 compared to EUR 7.10 a year ago. This figure was adversely affected by non-recurring items in the second half of 2014. Earnings per share before non-recurring items rose to EUR 7.13 compared to EUR 7.10 a year ago. After adjusting for the payment of EUR 300 million made in 2014 to provide additional external funding for the pension plans in Germany, operating cash flow rose by 5.0% to EUR 3.301 billion compared to EUR 3.144 billion. Return on capital employed was 9.5% in 2014 compared to 9.7%. The decrease in ROCE was mainly due to the increase in capital employed at December 31, 2014 as a result of exchange rate effects. In the 2015 financial year, the Group expects to generate Group revenue of between EUR 18.2 billion and EUR 19.0 billion, depending on economic trends and exchange rate movements. Linde anticipates that it will achieve an increase in Group operating profit (after adjusting for non-recurring items) to between EUR 4.1 billion and EUR 4.3 billion.
