BDI - BioEnergy International AG: Sales increase in the third quarter of 2016 due to project progress as planned

(Grambach, November 11, 2016) The planned project progress of current orders as well as project completions ensure a successful third quarter of 2016.

BDI - BioEnergy International AG increased sales by 43.6% to a total of EUR 28.6 million due to the implementation and completion of various projects on schedule (9M 2015: EUR 19.9 million). The operating result improved accordingly year-on-year by EUR 3.3 million to EUR -0.1 million (9M 2015: EUR -3.4 million). The positive financial result including taxes led to a positive result for the period of EUR 1.4 million (9M 2015: EUR 0.7 million).

The prepayments already received in the previous year for the new commissions led to an above-average positive operating cash flow in 2015. As expected, these prepayments have decreased again because of material orders and project expenses, so that the operating cash flow with EUR -8.1 million is negative this year (9M 2015: EUR 3.5 million).

Sound equity position provides a good basis for the future

The equity ratio was 63.8% at the end of the third quarter of 2016 (December 31, 2015: 57.2%). Equity decreased by 0.8% to EUR 50.5 million (December 31, 2015: EUR 50.9 million). Together with the large portfolio of securities and the high level of liquid funds of EUR 48.3 million as at the balance sheet date (December 31, 2015: EUR 58.9 million), BDI is in a sound financial position.

Current project business

Two projects were handed over to customers successfully in the third quarter. One of them was a RetroFit project in California, while the other one was the high FFA esterification unit in Great Britain. Successful progress is being made with the second major project in Great Britain. The start-up of the brewer's grain fermentation plant for the Göss brewery has now been completed to a very large extent.

The development of the algae resource astaxanthin in the newly established BioLife Science business operations continues to be in an intensive research stage. Due to the need for more intensive development work, the start of construction of the industrial plant is being deferred until 2017. BDI is confident that it will be able to establish itself successfully in the booming life science market with this plant.

Planned Delisting

Following the reporting period BDI's principal shareholder, BDI Beteiligungs GmbH, announced to launch a voluntary offer for the shares held by the retail shareholders of BDI. The shareholders will be offered a price of EUR13.50 in exchange for each BDI share. BDI intends, in agreement with BDI Beteiligungs GmbH, to delist the shares of BDI from the Regulated Market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. BDI does not intend to initiate admission on any other regulated market or trading platform. The Management Board of BDI, after consultation of the Supervisory Board, welcomes the transaction as a whole and intends, subject to the review of the offer document, to support the offer and to recommend that BDI shareholders accept such offer. Further information on the delisting can be found in a corresponding Q & A on the website of BDI - BioEnergy International AG.
