DGAP-News: VanCamel AG / Key word(s): Preliminary Results VanCamel AG: Provisional figures confirm profitable growth 24.02.2014 / 13:59 --------------------------------------------------------------------- VanCamel AG: Provisional figures confirm profitable growth - Group revenue rose 7.8% to EUR 175.4 million in 2013* - Revenue increase came from both the Footwear product line and the Apparel product line - Gross profit margin 33.6%; pre-tax margin 27.9% - Operating cash flow EUR 34.6 million - Cash and cash equivalents increased to EUR 66.2 million at year-end 2013 - Equity ratio improved to around 80% - Management expects revenue and earnings to further rise in 2014 Hamburg, 24 February 2014 - VanCamel AG, the German holding company of an established Chinese fashion label, today publishes provisional figures for FY 2013. Revenue rose by 7.8%* to EUR 175.4 million and EBIT was EUR 48.9 million, confirming management expectations. In renminbi, revenue growth was even 8.3%* due to the depreciation of the average exchange rate versus the euro. Xiaming Ke, CEO of VanCamel AG: "Last year we managed to grow sales and stabilise margins at a high level. Higher demand from Chinese consumers for high-quality, individual apparel labels proves the potential of our growth strategy. Our successful stock market listing, communicated in all VanCamel stores nationwide, has helped to raise awareness of the VanCamel brand among China's affluent young middle class. Within this lucrative target group, we are therefore benefiting increasingly from the growing market for lifestyle and fashion products." Profitable growth VanCamel lifted the revenue to EUR 175.4 million in FY 2013 (2012: EUR 168.3 million). Both the Footwear product line and the Apparel product line contributed to the positive performance. While revenues from Footwear increased 5.0% to EUR 52.6 million (2012: EUR 50.1 million), revenues from the Apparel segment rose 3.9% to EUR 122.8 million (2012: EUR 118.2 million). The gross profit was EUR 58.9 million in FY 2013 (2012: EUR 59.5 million), corresponding to a gross profit margin of 33.6% (2012: 35.4%). Earnings before taxes (EBT) totalled EUR 48.9 million (2012: EUR 51.2 million). The pre-tax margin was therefore 27.9% (2012: 30.4%). High operating cash flow The net cash inflow from operating activities was EUR 34.6 million in 2013 (2012: EUR 41.4 million). The cash flow from financing activities comprised an outflow of EUR 13.9 million (2012: outflow of EUR 12.5 million). Cash outflows of EUR 16.6 million (2012: EUR 11.7 million) for a dividend payment were partly offset by a net cash inflow of EUR 2.6 million from a loan from related parties. The net rise in cash and cash equivalents in the reporting period was EUR 20.7 million (2012: EUR 28.4 million). Cash and cash equivalents therefore increased to EUR 66.2 million as of December 31, 2013 (December 31, 2012: EUR 46.6 million). VanCamel did not have any current or non-current liabilities to banks in 2013. The book value of equity was EUR 84.1 million on 31 December 2013 (31 December 2012: EUR 66.2 million). The equity ratio therefore improved to 80% in the reporting period (31 December 2012: 72.2%). Outlook The Management Board expects to report a further rise in revenue and earnings in FY 2014. A more detailed forecast will be given when the full annual report and audited financial statements are published on 30 April 2014 and will be available for download from the company's website at www.vancamel.de/en, Investor Relations/Publications. * 2012 revenues adjusted to the new rebate formula to enhance comparability Notes on comparisons with 2012 figures The following effect should be borne in mind when comparing the revenue and earnings figures for the present year and the prior year: Before the transition to IFRS, VanCamel made shop fittings available to its distributors free of charge, capitalized the associated costs and depreciated the shop fittings over three years. That is not permitted under IFRS and all shop fittings have been written down retrospectively in the year of investment. To continue to support distributors in the ongoing modernisation of their stores, Van Camel has introduced sales rebates. The rebate will be 8% from 2014 with preceding stepwise increases. The rebate was 1.2% in 2012 and increased to 4.5% in 2013. Sales revenue decreases by the same amount as the increase, but the impact on operating income is lower because depreciation is no longer recognised for shop fittings.
