Munich, August 14, 2013 – Allgeier SE (ISIN DE0005086300, WKN 508630) reports further revenue and earnings growth in the first half of 2013 (January 1, 2013 – June 30, 2013). Consequently, Allgeier continued to report growth during the first half of 2013 and further bolstered its competitive position.
Revenue in the first half of 2013 grew to EUR 227.3 million, up 20 percent compared with the first six months of 2012 (previous year: EUR 190.1 million). Both operating growth and the corporate acquisitions that have been realized in the past years drove this earnings growth. All three Allgeier operating segments reported operating growth in this context. EBITDA grew by 24 percent year-on-year to reach EUR 12.3 million (previous year: EUR 9.9 million). EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes) increased by 88 percent to EUR 6.2 million in the period under review (previous year: EUR 3.3 million). The EBIT growth reflects a drop in amortization charges arising from the purchase price allocation. Despite this decline in amortization charges, the EBIT earnings figure continued to be impacted in by the amortization charges applied to IFRS purchase price allocations pursuant (amortization of order book positions, customer bases and products), which comprise most of the amortization and depreciation of EUR 6.1 million (previous year: EUR 6.6 million). Interest expenses of EUR 2.7 million remained at the level in the comparable prior-year period. After interest, Allgeier reported a 441 percent increase in EBT (earnings before tax) to EUR 3.5 million in the first six months of 2013 (previous year: EUR 0.6 million). After deducting EUR 1.4 million of tax expenses (previous year: EUR -0.6 million), Allgeier consequently achieved EUR 2.1 million of net income in the first half of 2013 (previous year: EUR 0.0 million). Basic earnings per share, calculated on the basis of the half-yearly earnings reduced to reflect the share of earnings attributable to non-controlling shareholders, rose to EUR 0.24 in the first half of 2013 (previous year: EUR -0.03).
The total assets of the Allgeier Group were down slightly from EUR 289.6 million on December 31, 2012 to EUR 283.3 million on June 30, 2013. The dividend payout and outgoing payments as part of acquisition activities comprise the main reasons for this reduction in total assets. Equity reduced accordingly to EUR 88.0 million as of the balance sheet date (December 31, 2012: EUR 93.4 million). The Allgeier Group reports liquid assets of EUR 30.8 million as of June 30, 2013 (December 31, 2012: EUR 38.9 million). Cash flow from operating activities grew to EUR 4.3 million in the period under review (previous year: EUR 3.4 million).
