DGAP-Adhoc: AT&S announces results for the financial year 2009/10 and fourth quarter to 31 March 2010

AT&S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik AG / Final Results 11.05.2010 07:27 Dissemination of an Ad hoc announcement, transmitted by DGAP - a company of EquityStory AG. The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. =-------------------------------------------------------------------------- - AT&S responded to the losses in the first quarter of the financial year by implementing a Group-wide cost-reduction programme, restructuring the Leoben-Hinterberg plant and intensifying its sales activities. These measures have significantly reduced the Company's cost base. Signs of improvement began to emerge in the second quarter, when the Group again recorded positive earnings. The third quarter was one of the most profitable in AT&S's history. - In the final quarter of the financial year 2009/10 the Company saw a sharp year-on-year rise in the EBIT margin to 6.2% (Q4 2008/09: -1.5%). The sequential decline in the EBIT margin was mainly due to lower manufactured value at the volume production site Shanghai (as a consequence of Chinese New Year), higher material and energy costs and a less attractive product mix. - Already in the third quarter, AT&S surpassed its goal of breakeven EBIT (excluding one-time effects of EUR -36.5 million) for the financial year 2009/10. Even profit before tax (excluding one-time effects) turned positive in 2009/10. - Net debt fell by EUR 26.4 million in the financial year 2009/10. As a result of the losses sustained in the first quarter, equity slipped from EUR 252.7 million to EUR 208.8 million, but the gearing ratio (net debt/equity) went up only slightly to 71%. However, it remained well below the target of 80%. - Management Board of AT&S will propose a dividend of EUR 0.10 to the Annual General Meeting on 7 July 2010. <pre> * FY 2009/10 FY 2008/09 Change Revenues 372.2 449.9 -77.7 Gross profit 44.9 66.4 -21.5 Gross profit margin 12.1% 14.7% EBITDA 52.6 70.8 -18.2 Operating result (EBIT) 11.0 26.6 -15.6 EBIT margin 2.9% 5.9% Profit before tax 2.6 27.8 -25.2 Profit/Loss for the period -1.1 24.8 -25.9 Earnings per share (EUR) -0.03 1.08 -1.11 </pre><pre> * Q4 09/10 Q4 08/09 Change Revenues 99.7 98.5 1.2 Gross profit 12.9 7.2 5.7 Gross profit margin 12.9% 7.3% EBITDA 15.7 10.3 5.4 Operating result (EBIT) 6.2 -1.5 7.7 EBIT margin 6.2% -1.5% Profit before tax 4.5 2.7 1.8 Profit/loss for the period 2.7 2.5 0.2 Earnings per share (EUR) 0.12 0.11 0.01 31/03/2010 31/03/2009 Change Net debt** 148.0 174.4 -26.4 Net gearing 71.0% 69.1% </pre> * All values in EUR million unless otherwise specified; figures from the income statement excluding one-time effects.
