The STEICO Group continued its growth in the first six months of 2019 with new record-breaking revenues and earnings.

It reports solid growth with revenues up by 13.6% to EUR 139.6 million. This positive growth is due to both construction products and also insulation materials.

Earnings also enjoyed pleasing growth. EBITDA improved in the first six months by 21.3% to EUR 26.0 million and EBIT lifted by 10.5% to EUR 13.7 million. Net income for the period increased by 7.4% to EUR 9.2 million.

The EBITDA margin of 18.5 and the EBIT margin of 9.8% mean that STEICO has continued its growth with a constant high level of profitability.

Q2 2019 - viewed in isolation

Revenues of EUR 68.7 million were recorded in the second quarter (previous year: EUR 63.6 million) This corresponds to an increase of 7.9%. Total operating revenues amounted to EUR 69.7 million (previous year: EUR 61.7 million)

Gross profits amounted to EUR 32.9 million (previous year: EUR 30.2 million).

EBITDA in the second quarter lifted by 8.2% to EUR 12.9 million (previous year: EUR 12.0 million). EBIT fell by 6.8% to EUR 7.1 million (previous year: EUR 7.6 million). The EBITDA margin is 18.6% (previous year: 19.4%), the EBIT margin is 10.1% (previous year: 12.3%).

Following an announced increase in sales prices as of 1 March 2019, the first quarter was characterized by significant pull-forward effects on orders and exceptional growth. The trend in the second quarter was therefore somewhat more subdued. Nevertheless, pleasing growth was recorded.

EBIT in the second quarter was also depressed by higher depreciation and amortization as a result of more expensive CO2 certificates. Nevertheless, stable high profit margins were achieved - in EBITDA as well as in EBIT. The second quarter is thus fully in line with the forecast.

Outlook
The management is very positive about the second half of 2019. The European construction industry is proving to be an anchor of stability despite the gloomy general economic outlook, and the timber construction segment continues to enjoy dynamic growth.
^
The STEICO Group's innovative products and capacity reserves in production mean that the Group is excellently positioned to continue its growth. The Board of Directors therefore confirms the outlook for 2019 as a whole with revenue growth above 10% and an EBIT ratio of between 9% and 10% (in terms of total operating revenue).
