SGL Carbon Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Half Ended June 30, 2015; Confirms Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

SGL Carbon reported consolidated earnings results for the first half ended June 30, 2015. For the period, the company reported sales revenue of EUR 655.1 million compared to EUR 655.2 million a year ago. EBITDA before non-recurring charges was EUR 61.1 million compared to EUR 40.9 million a year ago. Operating profit before non-recurring charges was EUR 15 million compared to EUR 1.1 million a year ago. Net loss was EUR 85 million or EUR 0.22 per basic and diluted share compared to EUR 62.1 million or EUR 0.69 per basic and diluted share a year ago. Capital expenditures in intangible assets and property, plant and equipment were EUR 30.1 million compared to EUR 60.5 million a year ago. Negative free cash flow, continuing operations was EUR 106.2 million compared to EUR 85.6 million a year ago. Return on capital employed was 7.2% compared to 4.7% a year ago. Net financial debt as at June 30, 2015 was EUR 522.6 million. The company confirmed the earnings guidance for fiscal year 2015, which was published in March 2015. Group sales should remain roughly stable in 2015. Lower prices resulting from declining raw material costs will be compensated by currency gains and higher demand in the Business Unit CFM. In addition, the company does not anticipate a near-term recovery in electric steel markets due to the continued export pressure from Chinese blast furnace steel. Nevertheless, recurring group EBITDA and recurring group EBIT should significantly improve year over year. Against the backdrop of a settlement expected in the near term with regard to risks relating to tax audits, a cash outflow of EUR 35 million is anticipated in the second half of this year. Net debt will be significantly higher at year-end 2015 than at year-end 2014. Capital expenditure on property, plant, and equipment is expected to be significantly lower than in 2014 and for the first time in many years to be at most at the level of depreciation.

SGL Carbon SE Reports Group Earnings Results for the First Half Year of 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Full Year 2015

SGL Carbon SE reported group earnings results for the first half year of 2015. The agreement on the sale of the HITCO's aerostructures business will have an impact on the company's financials for the first half year 2015 as well as for the full year 2015. A further non-recurring item impacting the financials relates to the company's tax liabilities in conjunction with tax audits. The related cash outflow amounts to approximately EUR 35 million in 2015 compared to existing tax provisions of EUR 41 million. This development does not materially impact the group's guidance for free cash flow from continuing operations. With exception of items and their impact on the group's cash flow, key performance indicators for the first half year of 2015 remain in line with market expectations. In the first half year of 2015, group sales amounted to EUR 655 million, group EBITDA before non recurring items to EUR 61 million, group EBIT before non recurring items to EUR 15 million, group ROS before non recurring items to 2%, and net debt as of June 30, 2015, to EUR 523 million. The company adheres to its full year 2015 guidance of a substantially improved EBITDA and EBIT compared to 2014. Due to subdued order intake activity in the first half of the year, the company expects the EBIT of the business unit GMS in the full year 2015 to remain below the 2014 level. This, however, will be compensated by a better than anticipated performance in the Business Unit CFM.
