swedish match ab (SWM) Key Developments

Swedish Match AB Announces Consolidated and Parent Company Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for 2015

Swedish Match AB announced consolidated and parent company earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. On consolidated basis, sales for the first quarter increased by 12% to SEK 3,368 million against SEK 3,014 million a year ago. In local currencies, sales increased by 1%. Operating profit amounted to SEK 1,014 million for the first quarter against SEK 858 million a year ago. The operating profit was positively affected by an adjustment of the share of net profit in Scandinavian Tobacco Group (STG) of SEK 56 million relating to a reassessment of useful lives primarily of trademarks in STG. EPS (basic) for the first quarter amounted to SEK 3.68 against SEK 2.91 a year ago. EPS (basic) excluding the STG adjustment amounted to SEK 3.40 against SEK 2.91 a year ago. Profit before income tax was SEK 900 million against SEK 732 million a year ago. Profit for the period was SEK 721 million against SEK 580 million a year ago. Earnings per share, diluted excluding STG adjustment was SEK 3.39 against SEK 2.91 a year ago. Net cash from operating activities was SEK 963 million against SEK 1,027 million a year ago. Purchase of property, plant and equipment was SEK 52 million against SEK 56 million a year ago. Purchase of intangible assets was SEK 6 million. The cash flow from operations decreased compared to the prior year mainly as a result of lower cash flow from changes in working capital. Cash flow from changes in working capital was negatively impacted by timing effects. EBITDA was SEK 1,093 million against SEK 930 million a year ago. The net debt as of March 31, 2015 amounted to SEK 7,548 million compared to SEK 7,533 million at March 31, 2014. EBITA was SEK 1,025 million against SEK 868 million a year ago. Excluding share of net profit in Scandinavian Tobacco Group, EBITA was SEK 877 million against SEK 820 million a year ago. On parent company basis, sales were SEK 13 million, operating loss was SEK 72 million, loss before income tax was SEK 198 million and loss for the period was SEK 144 million against sales of SEK 12 million, operating loss of SEK 32 million, loss before income tax of SEK 288 million and loss for the period of SEK 255 million for the same period a year ago. Based on current exchange rates and particularly the stronger US dollar, currency translation effects on sales and operating profit in 2015 are expected to be positive. Due to the relatively high corporate income tax rate in the US, the strengthening of the US dollar is likely to put upward pressure on the effective corporate tax rate of the Group in 2015 compared to 2014.
