Benefiting from market developments in the USA, the Company generated its best quarterly earnings in over seven years with operating income (EBITDA) of EUR82 million (EUR85 million before non-recurring items), compared with EUR63 million in the prior-year period. Net income rose from EUR24 million in the prior-year quarter to EUR33 million. Earnings per share consequently came to EUR0.33 (Q2 2017: EUR0.23). Klöckner & Co notably attained further milestones in its digital transformation. The proportion of sales generated through digital channels increased to 21% at the end of the quarter, having more than doubled in the last 24 months. The recently launched online shop in Belgium will contribute to a further significant increase. The XOM Materials open industry platform launched by Klöckner & Co likewise made dynamic progress. In the second quarter, another metal distributor and, for the first time, a large international processor of engineering plastics joined the platform. Gisbert Rühl, Chairman of the Management Board of Klöckner & Co SE: "Thanks to the strong growth in our online business, we have now, for the first time, generated more than 20% of Group sales via digital channels.

In view of the ongoing positive market environment, Klöckner & Co anticipates another sharp year-on-year rise in operating income (EBITDA) in the third quarter, with EBITDA of EUR55 million to EUR65 million and correspondingly positive net income. The expectation for the full year is consequently now at least a slight increase in EBITDA compared with the EUR220 million prior-year figure.
