Smurfit Kappa Group plc Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Second Half of 2015 and Capital expenditure and Effective Tax Rate Guidance for the Full Year 2015

Smurfit Kappa Group plc reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015. For the six months, the company reported revenue of EUR 3,996 million against EUR 3,947 million a year ago, with higher revenue in Europe partly offset by a reduction in the Americas, reflecting the impact of adopting the Simadi exchange rate. Profit before income tax was EUR 243 million against EUR 228 million a year ago. Profit for the period attributable to owners of the parent was EUR 169 million against EUR 142 million a year ago. Diluted earnings per share were 72.4 cents against 61.9 cents a year ago. Free cash flow was EUR 74 million against EUR 135 million a year ago. The decrease of EUR 61 million resulted mainly from lower EBITDA, higher outflows for exceptional items, capital expenditure and tax, with a partial offsetting saving in cash interest. EBITDA for the first half of 2015 was decreased by EUR 13 million to EUR 551 million with a decrease in the Americas, partly offset by higher earnings in Europe. Capital expenditure amounted to EUR 169 million in the first half of 2015, compared to EUR 152 million in the same period in 2014. Profit for the period attributable to owners of the parent was EUR 169 million against EUR 142 million a year ago. Diluted earnings per share were 72.4 cents against 61.9 cents a year ago. Net cash inflow from operating activities was EUR 235 million against EUR 290 million a year ago. Additions to property, plant and equipment and biological assets were EUR 171 million against EUR 157 million a year ago. Additions to intangible assets were EUR 4 million against EUR 6 million a year ago. For the quarter period, the company reported revenue of EUR 2,034 million against EUR 2,015 million a year ago, with higher revenue in Europe partly offset by a reduction in the Americas, primarily as result of the impact of the adoption of the Simadi exchange rate for the translation of the Group’s Venezuelan operations. Profit before income tax was EUR 145 million against EUR 124 million a year ago. Profit for the period attributable to owners of the parent was EUR 101 million against EUR 78 million a year ago. Diluted earnings per share were 41.8 cents against 33.4 cents a year ago. Free cash flow was EUR 49 million against EUR 76 million a year ago. EBITDA for the second quarter of 2015 was EUR 285 million, EUR 10 million lower year-on-year primarily due to significantly lower earnings in Venezuela following the adoption of the Simadi exchange rate for the Bolivar. Capital expenditure was EUR 96 million against EUR 86 million a year ago. Net debt at the end of the second quarter was EUR 3,100 million against EUR 2,676 million a year ago. Net cash outflow was EUR 183 million against EUR 15 million a year ago. For the second half of 2015, the company expects EBITDA margin of 14% to continue to improve through the period. The group is also continuing to invest in its Quick Win program of capital projects, which is in line with expectation. The program will feature over 100 projects and a total expenditure of EUR 150 million with a 3-year period from 2014 to 2016, by which time the assets are expected to generate an incremental EBITDA of EUR 75 million per annum. The effective tax rate for the full year is expected to be 29%. Capital expenditure for the full year is expected to increase in the second half of the year supported by the stronger free cash flow typically generated in that period. The ROCE is expected to revert back to 15% by the year end.
