Krones reports rising sales and profit in H1 2011

During the first half of 2011, Krones AG, the world’s market leader for beverage filling and packaging technology, achieved significant increases in all important ratios compared with the preceding year, the company announced on Wednesday. Krones has been profiting from the cyclical upturn and the extensive initiatives it has taken to upgrade its corporate performance, it said.

During the first half of 2011, sales rose by 16.8% in comparison to the preceding year’s figure to reach 1,257.5 million euros. In the year’s second quarter, the company’s growth accelerated: at 650.8 million euros, sales from April to June 2011 were 19.9% up on the preceding year’s equivalent period. Order bookings rose by 19.8% in the year’s first half to reach 1,323.4 million euros.

Krones’ profitability showed a substantial improvement in the year’ first half. Earnings before taxes (EBT) rose from 32.0 million euros in the preceding year to 69.2 million euros. The EBT margin, meaning pretax earnings in relation to sales, was thus 5.5% (preceding year: 3.0 %). After taxes, Krones earned 49.2 million euros (preceding year: 22.1 million euros) in the first half of the ongoing business year. This corresponds to earnings per share of 1.62 euros (preceding year: 0.73 euros).

From today’s perspective, however, Krones is confident that the situational conditions will remain favourable overall during the second half of 2011.

Krones anticipates that in comparison to 2010 sales will grow by significantly more than 10%, and appreciably exceed the previous record high of around 2,381 million euros from 2008. For order bookings, too, the company expects a new record high, laying solid foundations for further growth. In addition, the Executive Board is very confident that Krones will significantly improve its earnings, and achieve a pretax return on sales of more than 5% (preceding year: 3.3%). From today’s perspective, Krones anticipates that the pretax earnings achieved in January to June will be exceeded in the year’s second half.
