DGAP-News: Alphaform AG / Key word(s): Final Results Alphaform AG: Alphaform presents final figures for the 2014 financial year 30.03.2015 / 11:33 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Press Release Alphaform presents final figures for the 2014 financial year - Revenue rises to EUR29.1 million in 2014 - EBITDA improves to EUR-1.3 million - For 2015, Alphaform anticipates another double-digit increase in revenue and a significant improvement in earnings Feldkirchen, 30 March 2015. Alphaform AG, Europe's leading industrial 3D printing service provider, published its 2014 annual report today. It does not contain any significant changes in comparison to the preliminary figures published on 26 February 2015. According to the annual report, revenue in the last financial year rose by 12.4% to EUR29.1 million. EBITDA improved by EUR2.2 million to EUR-1.3 million and the consolidated net loss improved by EUR3.0 million to EUR-3.2 million. The year 2014 was influenced by extensive restructuring as part of the Alphaform Excellence programme. This programme, launched in the first quarter of 2014, is based on five pillars: in addition to improving processes and structures in the three business segments, it also includes strengthening sales and the corporate culture. For four of the five pillars, the programme took effect as planned during 2014 and made a key contribution to the significant improvement in the earnings situation in two of the three business segments. For the third business segment, Additive Manufacturing Plastic at the Feldkirchen location, the Management Board additionally established an 11-point plan in autumn 2014 in light of continuing challenges. This plan will now be implemented in 2015 as systematically as the Excellence programme itself. Alphaform anticipates further improvement in revenue and earnings in 2015 For 2015 as a whole, Alphaform plans a double-digit increase in revenue and another significant improvement in earnings. After investments totalling EUR3.0 million in 2014, the company will make substantial investments in machinery and in ongoing strengthening of sales in 2015 as well. Financing is ensured by the fact that cash and cash equivalents doubled year-on-year to EUR2.4 million as at 31 December 2014, as well as by the most recent capital increase on 16 March 2015 involving new investors with a long-term focus. At the same time, Alphaform is working on the demanding process of obtaining further certification in order to establish itself as a series manufacturer for promising sectors such as the aerospace industry. Alphaform is already certified for medical technology and expects to receive an order for 3D printing of medical technology implants for the first time in the current year. Alphaform CEO Dr Hanns-Dieter Aberle explains: "We are entering a new era. More and more applications for 3D printing are emerging in more and more sectors - and Alphaform is among the pioneers." Alphaform therefore intends to participate at an above-average rate in the continued double-digit market growth in the years ahead that is forecast by market researchers. In this context, the company is also focussing on linking state-of-the-art manufacturing methods with digital approaches. CEO Aberle comments: "Alphaform is already living in the age of Industry 4.0. We intend to build on this lead in 2015 and beyond." The full annual report is available for download at http://www.alphaform.de/de/investor-relations/news/finanzberichte/.
