Wacker Chemie May Reportedly List Siltronic On Frankfurt Stock Exchange

Wacker Chemie AG (XTRA:WCH) intends to list Siltronic AG on the Frankfurt stock exchange. The initial public offering will, among other factors, depend on the capital market environment, Wacker Chemie said in a statement. Two people familiar with the plans stated that around 30% stake will be listed by mid to late June 2015 with an official intention to float to be published later this month. Siltronic could be valued at more than €1 billion. Citi, Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley are coordinating the IPO of Siltronic, according to sources familiar with the deal.

Wacker Chemie AG Reports Group Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Revises Earnings Guidance for the Full Year 2015

Wacker Chemie AG reported group earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter the company's net profit grew 10% year on year to EUR 70.6 million, backed by a 15.3% gain in sales. Higher sales volumes, especially for solar silicon and semiconductor wafers, and the weaker euro helped boost the company's sales to EUR 1.33 billion from EUR 1.16 billion in the previous corresponding period. Earnings per share as a result during the quarter rose 5.1% year on year to EUR 1.42. EBITDA, however, slipped 6.3% to EUR 267.1 million in the absence of a one-off gain booked in the same period in 2014. The main reason for the decrease was a non-recurring effect. The comparable income for the reporting quarter was EUR 4.7 million. Operating profit was down 5.6% year on year to EUR 126.3 million. The company also noted that it invested EUR 174.9 million in the first quarter of 2015, about 96% more than a year ago due to project-related factors, although net cash flow during the period fell to EUR 17.4 million from EUR 104.5 million. Income before taxes was EUR 119.3 million compared with EUR 110.1 million a year ago. Capital expenditures (including financial assets) were EUR 174.9 million compared with EUR 89.3 million a year ago. As on March 31, 2015, the company's net financial debt was EUR 1,198.1 million. The company raised its 2015 sales forecast following strong first-quarter earnings. The company now projects group sales will be around 10% higher than the 2014 figure of EUR 4.83 billion. Previously, it expected a high single-digit percentage sales increase year on year. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) in 2015 - adjusted on a comparable basis to exclude special income - should also rise slightly, while net income is expected to be lower than a year ago because special income is unlikely to be as high as last year. Capital expenditures will be higher than last year, climbing to about EUR 725 million. Depreciation will amount to around EUR 625 million, slightly above the prior-year level. Net cash flow will be markedly positive. Net financial debt will rise by EUR 200 - EUR 300 million, mostly because of the investments at the new Charleston site in the USA. Group net income is projected to be lower than last year.
