Smurfit Kappa Group plc Reports Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Reports Impairment Charges for the First Quarter Ending March 31, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for 2015

Smurfit Kappa Group plc reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported revenue of €1,962 million compared to €1,932 million a year ago. Operating profit was €127 million compared to €160 million a year ago. Profit before income tax was €98 million compared to €104 million a year ago. Profit attributable to owners of the parent company was €71 million or 30.4 cents per diluted share compared to €65 million or 28.6 cents per diluted share a year ago. EBITDA before exceptional items was €270 million compared to €274 million a year ago. EBITDA after exceptional items was €237 million compared to €265 million a year ago. EBITDA was €266 million compared to €269 million a year ago. Free cash flow was €25 million against €59 a year ago. The Group reported an improved underlying year-on-year performance in the first quarter. While EBITDA was down 1% year-on-year, this was materially affected by the decision to translate the Venezuelan operations at the SIMADI rate. Capital expenditure of €73 million in the first quarter of 2015 equated to 82% of depreciation, compared to 71% (€66 million) in the first quarter of 2014. This higher level of capital expenditure year-on-year reflects the advancement of the Group’s ‘Quick Win’ and growth focused investment projects. Return on Capital Employed, a key metric for the Group, was robust at 15.3%, and significantly ahead of the same period in 2014. Net cash inflow from operating activities was €89 million compared to €125 million a year ago. Additions to property, plant and equipment and biological assets were €70 million compared to €63 million a year ago. Additions to intangible assets were €2 million compared to €2 million a year ago. Net debt was €2,930 million against €2,640 million a year ago. For the quarter, the company reported impairment of assets of €6 million. The Group is in the second year of its three-year programme of ‘Quick Win’ capital expenditure and continues to expect to successfully deliver on its target of €18 million of incremental EBITDA in 2015. The programme, which is positioned to generate up to €75 million in annualised incremental EBITDA in 2017 involves over 100 individual operational efficiency-led projects. Following its strong performance in 2014, the company reported a good start to 2015 with underlying earnings growth. While EBITDA was 1% down year-on-year this was particularly impacted by the Group’s decision to consolidate the results of its Venezuelan operations at the variable Sistema Marginal de Divisas (‘SIMADI’) rate. The effect of this change was a reduction in EBITDA of €14 million for the first quarter, with Venezuela now expected to be less than 1% of the Group’s EBITDA for 2015.
