Villeroy & Boch revises forecast for 2019 financial year

Mettlach, 16 July 2019 - The Management Board of Villeroy & Boch AG has revised its forecast for the 2019 financial year in the current half-yearly financial statements. Based on current business development, the company now expects a slight decline in consolidated revenue to between EUR 825 million and EUR 850 million (previous year: EUR 853.1 million) and in EBIT to between EUR 48 million and EUR 52 million (previous year: EUR 53.6 million). So far, an increase in revenues and earnings of 3 to 5 % each had been forecasted.

The reason for the correction is the unsatisfactory revenue development of -6.3 % in the first half of 2019. In the first six months of the current financial year, Villeroy & Boch AG generated consolidated revenue of EUR 393.2 million. At EUR 15.5 million, EBIT was down EUR 3.5 million on the previous year.

Real estate project Luxembourg:
After Villeroy & Boch announced in February of this year that it was in exclusive negotiations with a property developer regarding the sale of a former plant property in Luxembourg, the preliminary agreements have been concluded and the contractual negotiations are now very likely to be completed in the second half of 2019. As previously, the Management Board expects the transaction to generate high eight-figure non-recurring income.

Note: The interim report on the first half of 2019 will be published as scheduled on 18 July 2019 and will contain additional information on business development in the two divisions.

Interview im Fokus

HanseYachts: „Der ideale Zeitpunkt für den Kauf“

Die Übernahme des Katamaran-Herstellers Privilège bringt die HanseYachts AG dem Umsatzziel von 200 Mio. Euro einen bedeutenden Schritt näher. „Der Katamaran-Markt ist das derzeit am stärksten wachsende Segment im Yacht-Geschäft. Privilège ist weltweit in Preis und Qualität die Nummer eins“, so CEO Dr. Jens Gerhardt. Zudem sei der Deal ein wichtiger Faktor, um die EBITDA-Marge auf 10 bis 12 % zu steigern. Im Financial.de-Interview spricht der Konzernlenker über die aktuellsten Trends im Yacht-Geschäft, die laufende Barkapitalerhöhung sowie die Weltpremieren in Cannes.

Fonds Research 2019: S.E.A. Asian High Yield Bond bietet attraktive Investitionschance

Auch 2019 hat die GBC AG unter der Vielzahl an Publikumsfonds neun „Fonds Champions“ herausgefiltert. Darunter auch den S.E.A. Asian High Yield Bond (ISIN: LU1138637738), der eine gute Anlagechance anbietet mit einer Strategie, die kaum reproduzierbar ist. Insbesondere vor dem Hintergrund des anhaltenden Niedrigzinsniveaus sehen wir den Anleihefonds als äußerst attraktive Investitionschance, um nachhaltige und volatilitätsarme Renditen zu erzielen. Wir haben den S.E.A. Asian High Yield Bond mit 4 von 5 Falken eingestuft.
