Total revenues increased from EUR 153 million to EUR 157 million after the first three months

  • EBITDA and EBIT held steady at EUR 10.7 million resp. EUR 7.8 million
  • Full-year guidance for 2016 reaffirmed

Bremen, May 12, 2016. The OHB Group’s total revenues (Prime Standard, ISIN: DE0005936124) came to EUR 157.4 million, increasing slightly over the same period of the previous year by just under 3% (previous year: EUR 153.2 million).

With only slightly increased cost of materials at EUR 92.4 million (previous year: EUR 91.2 million), operating earnings (EBITDA) held steady at EUR 10.7 million (previous year: EUR 10.8 million). At 6.8%, the operating EBITDA margin remained stable in the first three months of 2016, compared with 7.0% in the comparable prior-year period. With depreciation and amortisation expense dropping slightly to EUR 2.8 million (previous year: EUR 3.0 million), EBIT came to EUR 7.8 million and was thus unchanged over the previous year. Consequently, the EBIT margin contracted slightly from 5.1% in the previous year to 5.0%. The EBIT margin on the Group’s own higher manufacturing input came to 8.3%, down from 8.8% in the previous year. Profit from ordinary business activities at the end of the first three months of 2016 came to EUR 7.1 million and was thus also more or less unchanged (previous year: EUR 7.2 million). After lower income tax of EUR 2.2 million in the first three months of 2016 (previous year: EUR 2.6 million), the OHB Group recorded slightly higher consolidated net profit for the period of EUR 4.8 million (previous year: EUR 4.7 million).

At EUR 118.6 million, non-consolidated total revenues in the Space Systemsbusiness unit was virtually unchanged over the first three months of the previous year (EUR 118.3 million). With the cost of materials and services purchased dropping to EUR 73.9 million (previous year: EUR 75.7 million), operating earnings (EBITDA) rose to EUR 8.0 million, up from EUR 7.5 million in the previous year. Segment EBIT climbed by EUR 0.5 million or just under 9% to EUR 6.2 million (previous year: EUR 5.7 million). The EBIT margin relative to non-consolidated total revenues also widened to 5.2%, up from 4.8% in the previous year. The EBIT margin relative to the segment’s own manufacturing input came to 10.5%, up from 10.1% in the same period of the previous year despite the increase of just under 5% in own manufacturing input.

In the first three months of 2016, non-consolidated total revenues in the Aerospace + Industrial Products business unit climbed by 9% over the year-ago period to EUR 39.4 million (previous year: EUR 36.1 million). The cost of materials and services purchased rose by around 15% from EUR 16.4 million in the year-ago period to EUR 18.8 million in the period under review. As a result, operating earnings (EBITDA) dropped to EUR 2.8 million, down from EUR 3.0 million in the previous year. Segment EBIT remained largely unchanged at EUR 1.8 million (previous year: EUR 1.9 million) due to lower depreciation and amortisation expense. The EBIT margin relative to non-consolidated total revenues contracted to 4.6%, down from 5.1% in the previous year. The EBIT margin relative to the segment’s own manufacturing input, which rose substantially by around 13%, contracted to 5.1%, down from 5.8% in the previous year.

At the end of the first three months of 2016, the firm orders held by the OHB Group were valued at EUR 1,744 million, up from EUR 1,684 million as of December 31, 2015. Of this, OHB System AG accounted for EUR 1,280 million or a good 73%.
At EUR 42.8 million at the end of the period under review, cash and cash equivalents (net of securities) thus fell short of the previous year’s high figure (EUR 52.0 million). Total consolidated assets increased by EUR 60.5 million or 9.5% to EUR 699.2 million as of March 31, 2016 (December 31, 2015: EUR 638.7 million). Consolidated equity expanded by EUR 9.8 million to EUR 178.6 million. Accordingly, the equity ratio came to 26% as of March 31, 2016 and was thus unchanged over December 31, 2015.

The Management Board expects consolidated total revenues of EUR 750 million for 2016, accompanied by EBITDA of EUR 54 million and EBIT of 42 million. Therefore OHB SE reaffirms the outlook for fiscal 2016 given in February this year. Given the greater order backlog and upbeat outlook for the current year, the Management Board assumes that the Group’s net assets and financial condition will also remain strong.
