Success in 2016 lays the foundation for further growth in Ringmetall Group
DGAP-News: Ringmetall Aktiengesellschaft / Key word(s): Final Results/Preliminary Results
- Consolidated sales rises by 41.5 percent to EUR 94.4 million
Munich, 20 March 2017 - Ringmetall AG (ISIN: DE0006001902), a leading global specialist in the packaging industry, achieved significant growth as expected in 2016. Consolidated sales revenues rose by 41.5 percent in the past year to EUR 94.4 million (2015: EUR 66.7 million). The gross margin declined slightly to 43.7 percent (2015: 46.8%). At EUR 11.4 million, earnings before taxes, interest, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) more than doubled over the previous year (2015: EUR 5.5 million). Earnings before taxes und interest (EBIT) soared to EUR 6.4 million (2015: EUR 1.4 million).
The preliminary key business performance data for 2016 are listed below:
Cost reduction measures implemented in the Industrial Handling division produced a positive contribution to the division result starting in the third quarter of the past fiscal year, after several quarters of declining figures. "Unfortunately, the positive trend was not as strong through the fourth quarter," explained Christoph Petri, Spokesman of the Management Board of the Ringmetall Group. "However, we expect business performance to stabilize in 2017." At EUR 15.3 million, division sales revenues were slightly below those of the previous year (2015: EUR 15.4 million), with EBITDA nearly unchanged from the previous year at EUR 0.6 million (2015: EUR 0.6 million). In conjunction with the exploration of further potential for process optimization, the Management Board of the Ringmetall Group recently initiated measures that are currently being implemented. The company will publish more information about these activities in the second quarter.
The positive trend throughout the Group is also reflected by the regional business performance. In Germany, sales consistently continued to rise. Improved conditions for purchasing steel simultaneously contributed to a slightly disproportionate increase in the result. The situation in the American market is similar, although the results of optimization were significantly better due to the initial implementation of numerous packages of proven measures. In the Italian market, the internal business performance forecasts were substantially exceeded with regard to both sales and results. Here as well, the optimization of purchasing conditions resulted in a disproportionate increase in the margins, which however were partially offset by higher costs for purchased services. In Turkey, double-digit growth figures were achieved, contributing to a significant improvement in the subsidiary's results. In China, a substantial increase in sales was posted, particularly at the end of the year. Sales and earnings figures reached new records in December.
"We are currently in a very comfortable situation and are very pleased with the business development in the past fiscal year," said Christoph Petri in conclusion. "In 2017, we want to take advantage of the attractive market environment and continue to grow both organically and through acquisitions." For the full fiscal year 2017, the Management Board of Ringmetall Group expects an organic increase in sales to EUR 98.0 - 103.0 million as well as a rise in EBITDA to EUR 11.5 - 13.0 million.
