Looser Holding AG Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year of 2015

Looser Holding AG reported consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported net revenues of CHF 107.603 million compared to CHF 118.045 million a year ago. EBITDA was CHF 11.206 million compared to CHF 14.010 million a year ago. EBIT was CHF 5.601 million compared to CHF 8.444 million a year ago. Net income was CHF 1.941 million or CHF 0.51 per share compared to CHF 3.411 million or CHF 0.90 per share a year ago. Cash used in operating activities was CHF 8.988 million compared to CHF 9.119 million a year ago. Net debt was CHF 125.572 million compared to CHF 119.674 million a year ago. Due to the significantly stronger Swiss franc, the company expects that revenues for the full financial year 2015 will decline while the operating margin will remain at the prior year level.

Looser Holding AG Proposes Dividend

Looser Holding AG announced that due to the sound balance sheet and financial flexibility, the board of directors will be in a position to propose to the general meeting that a dividend of CHF 1.80 per registered share entitled to dividend be distributed, free of Swiss withholding tax, from capital contribution reserves. This corresponds to a dividend payout ratio of about 46%.

Looser Holding AG Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the Full Year Ended December 31, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Full Year of 2015

Looser Holding AG reported consolidated earnings results for the full year ended December 31, 2014. The company generated net revenues of CHF 487.4 million, which thus remained at the prior year level. After adjustments for currency, acquisition and divestment effects, revenues declined slightly from 2013 by 0.8%. The operating result (EBITDA) amounted to CHF 55.7 million, which corresponds to an increase by about 3.1% against the previous year (prior year: CHF 54.0 million). At 11.4%, the EBITDA margin slightly exceeded the prior year level (prior year: 11.0%). Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) amounted to CHF 30.5 million, including impairments of property, plant and equipment in the amount of approximately CHF 2 million, mainly relating to the relocation of Feycos production plants in St. Margrethen and Urdorf to Bendern (Principality of Liechtenstein). The EBIT margin was 6.3%. In the year under review, the consolidated net income of the group increased to CHF 14.7 million (prior year: CHF 3.4 million). It should, however, be noted that substantial impairments of goodwill and intangible assets had been reported in the previous year. Net debt was reduced markedly from December 31, 2013 by CHF 25.1 million to CHF 119.7 million (prior year: CHF 144.8 million). This reduction was mainly due to the cash flow from operations and an active management of net current assets. The company provided earnings guidance for the full year of 2015. The company expects that the operating margin (EBITDA) for the financial year 2015 will be on the same level as in the previous year.
