DGAP-News: WashTec AG / Key word(s): Final Results WashTec AG: WashTec closes fiscal year 2017 with record results in revenue and earnings 21.03.2018 / 12:00 The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Press Release WashTec closes fiscal year 2017 with record results in revenue and earnings - Revenue of EUR 425.0m or 14.0% and EBIT of EUR 52.2m or 18.4% higher than prior year with an EBIT margin of 12.3% - Positive performance across all products and customer groups relative to prior year - Significant revenue and earnings growth in Europe and North America regions - Dividend proposal to the Annual General Meeting of EUR 2.45 per share - Outlook 2018: revenue growth of about 3% with a significant increase in EBIT Augsburg, March 21, 2018 - As published at the end of January in connection with the preliminary results WashTec AG is looking back at a very successful year 2017. With revenue of EUR 425.0m (prior year EUR 372.8m) WashTec reached an EBITDA (Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization) of EUR 62.1m (prior year: EUR 53.4m). Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) were EUR 52.2m (prior year: EUR 44.1m). This equals an EBIT margin of 12.3% (prior year: 11.8%). Europe and North America regions were able to improve their revenue as well as their operating income significantly. Earnings per share increased also significantly to EUR 2.76 (prior year: EUR 2.29) on the basis of an average amount of 13,382,324 shares (prior year: 13,382,324 shares). The number of employees increased to 1,814 as of the end of December 2017 (prior year: 1,767 employees). Free cash flow increased to EUR 28.1m (prior year: EUR 20.8m). The main reasons for this rise were the positive business performance, large prepayments from customers at the end of the year and lower capital expenditure. The EUR 28.1m dividend payment and larger tax payments for prior years caused net financial debt (cash and cash equivalents less current and non-current financial liabilities) to increase moderately by EUR 2.6m to EUR 7.1m. Despite an increased balance sheet total, the equity ratio remained at solid 40.3% (prior year: 40.1%). ROCE (Return on Capital Employed) increased from 24.9% to 29.1%. "We align our actions to the benefit of our customers while working to continuously improve our efficiency. Thus, we gained an award in the extraordinary location development category in the »Factory of the year 2017« competition," said Dr. Volker Zimmermann, CEO of WashTec AG at today's annual press conference. Forecast for fiscal year 2018 In the fiscal year 2018, the company expects a revenue distribution comparable to several prior years and following the typical model with higher revenue in the second half of the year. The one time effect of higher revenue following major customer orders especially in North America in the first half of 2017 will not be repeated in 2018. For the fiscal year 2018, WashTec is aiming for revenue growth of about 3% for the Group, with a significant increase in EBIT. The Company likewise expects a significant increase in free cash flow. Supervisory Board members Dr. Günter Blaschke and Ulrich Bellgardt are due for re-election at this year's Annual General Meeting on April 30, 2018. In the event of his re-election to the Supervisory Board, it is intended to propose Dr. Blaschke as candidate for the Supervisory Board chair. General risk information Any outlook is subject to uncertainties that could have a material effect on forecast revenue and earnings performance.
