DGAP-News : CENTROTEC Sustainable AG / Key word(s): Preliminary Results/Forecast CENTROTEC Sustainable AG : CENTROTEC meets earnings forecast for 2013 - forecast for 2014: slight growth in revenue and earnings 03.02.2014 / 07:30 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Brilon, February 3, 2014 : CENTROTEC Sustainable AG, Brilon , generated revenue of EUR 525 million in the 2013 financial year (unaudited; previous year EUR 533.8 million ). Based on provisional calculations, the prior-year operating result (EBIT) of EUR 35.2 million will be just exceeded, in line with the earnings forecast made one year ago. CENTROTEC starts the 2014 financial year on a cautiously optimistic note. The signs of general economic stabilisation in many European markets that have latterly performed very weakly is one important factor, along with the fundamentally positive development of the home market Germany . On that basis, CENTROTEC anticipates slightly higher revenue and earnings for the current financial year. It will only be possible to give a more precise forecast as the year progresses because the performance of international markets in particular, but also the impact of the regulatory changes taking place in Germany , are currently still very difficult to anticipate. The audited 2013 financial statements and Annual Report will be published at the Annual Press Conference on March 27, 2013 . The group's new Chief Financial Officer, Dr. Thomas Kneip , will also be introduced at that event. Dr. Kneip was appointed with effect from January 1, 2014 and will be based at the group's biggest location, the headquarters of Wolf in Mainburg, Bavaria . His predecessor Anton Hans will continue to perform the task of Chief Risk and Audit Officer from Brilon.
