RTL Group Reports Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and First Half Ended June 30, 2015; Raises Earnings Guidance for the Full Year of 2015

RTL Group reported earnings results for the second quarter and first half ended June 30, 2015. For the year, the company reported a 3.8% increase in group revenue to EUR 2.788 billion compared with EUR 2.687 billion in the same period the previous year. The growth was due to increasing revenue at RTL Germany, growing digital revenue and favourable exchange rate effects. Reported EBITA was up 3.3% to EUR 534 million against EUR 517 million a year ago, mainly driven by Germany, resulting in a stable EBITA margin at 19.2%. EBITDA was EUR 628 million against EUR 612 million a year ago. EBIT was EUR 543 million against EUR 420 million a year ago. Profit for the period was EUR 388 million against EUR 246 million a year ago. Profit attributable to the shareholders was EUR 351 million against EUR 202 million a year ago. Reported EPS was EUR 2.28 against EUR 1.32 a year ago. Net cash from operating activities amounted to EUR 295 million, resulting in an operating cash conversion of 74%. RTL Group had net financial debt of EUR 1,003 million as of June 30, 2015. Assuming no major changes in the economic climate across its markets, the company raised the outlook for the full year 2015 and now expects total revenue to be slightly up compared to 2014. Full-year reported EBITA should be in line with last year's result, despite lower contributions from one-off gains this year. In the second quarter, the company reported revenue was up 7.7% to EUR 1,480 million against EUR 1,374 million a year ago, driven by higher revenue from Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland, digital assets and FremantleMedia. EBITA was up 4.3% to EUR 340 million against EUR 326 million a year ago. Net profit attributable to RTL Group shareholders more than doubled in the second quarter to EUR 245 million against EUR 111 million a year ago.
