DGAP-News: Heliocentris Energy Solutions AG / Key word(s): Preliminary Results Heliocentris Energy Solutions AG announces unaudited figures for 2015 and a package of measures for sustainable profitable growth 31.03.2016 / 08:00 The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Heliocentris Energy Solutions AG announces unaudited figures for 2015 and a package of measures for sustainable profitable growth - Sales growth in 2015: sales up 17% at EUR 22.1 million despite delayed incoming orders - Forecast for 2016: increase in sales to between EUR 27 million and EUR 33 million and significant improvement in earnings against 2015 - extensive improvement in efficiency measures shall result in considerably lower fixed costs in second half of 2016 - Outlook for 2017: gross profit margin to improve by more than 10 percentage points, 30% reduction in staff costs and 15% reduction in other expenses targeting break even in 2017 Berlin, 31 March 2016 - According to figures that have not yet been audited, Heliocentris Energy Solutions AG (ISIN DE000A1MMHE3), which is listed in the Prime Standard at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, generated sales of EUR 22.1 million in the 2015 financial year (previous year: EUR 18.9 million). Sales in the fourth quarter of 2015 amounted to EUR 10.8 million as compared to EUR 8 million in the same quarter of the previous year. Despite this increase in sales, the EBITDA will amount to EUR - 11.48 million for the full year in 2015 according to preliminary unaudited figures (previous year: EBITDA of EUR - 9.47 million). This is due chiefly to two factors. Firstly, the increased cost base in 2015 as a result of significant non-recurring costs relating to the capital increase and the segment change in May 2015, as well as additional fixed costs from investments in electrolysis technology. Secondly, a fall in gross profits due to low sales volumes combined with low gross margins, since the majority of sales were generated in the project business and not in the high-margin business with energy management systems, maintenance and operating agreements and fuel-cell-based solutions. In this context, the Management Board and the Supervisory Board of Heliocentris Energy Solutions AG have introduced an extensive package of measures with the aim of sustainably increasing the gross profit margin while also significantly reducing fixed costs by means of improvement in efficiency measures and a consistent focus on the industrial business. Ayad Abul-Ella, CEO of the Heliocentris Group, comments: "Over the past two years, we have significantly expanded our customer base and positioning in South-East Asia and the Middle East and the portfolio of qualified components for our turnkey project business, such as batteries, rectifiers and diesel generators. In the process of resizing our project business, we also significantly improved the underlying core processes such as tendering, design, installation and commissioning. This enables us to achieve further increases in sales from project business as well as significantly reducing the staff costs and other expenses required." In addition to cost savings from efficiency enhancements, the second pillar of the "Roadmap to Profitability" is an improvement in gross margins as a result of higher sales with energy management software and proprietary storage systems with major OEM customers and system integrators. This business is mainly product and licence business, which allows for higher gross margins and can be resized faster using less capital and fewer resources. Ayad Abul-Ella adds: "With the acquisition of FutureE and the establishment of the development site for electrolysis in Italy, we have strengthened our technological basis in the field of decentralised energy storage, and at the beginning of this year we started marketing the first generation of fuel-cell-based decentralised storage systems with the product name GenStoreTM. Further innovative decentralised storage systems on a lithium battery basis will follow over the course of this year. Together with our software connecT for intelligent operation of base stations, which is also being marketed to initial customers from the beginning of 2016, we plan to generate a higher share of sales with products, services and software - despite rising sales from project business - already during 2017. As a result, we anticipate an improvement in gross margins of around 10% compared to 2015, when the largest share of sales was still generated with turnkey projects." The measures initiated to reduce costs are largely expected to take effect in the second half of 2016. The majority of the sales planned for the 2016 financial year of between EUR 27 million and EUR 33 million are anticipated in the second half of 2016. In view of the expected sales growth combined with a decreasing cost base, the company anticipates a significant improvement in earnings in the financial year 2016, driven mainly during the second half of the year. With the package of measures for sustainably improving the gross profit margin and the planned increase in sales to a level of approximately EUR 45 million in the 2017 financial year, the company expects to break even in operating terms in this year as a whole.
