Provisional figures for the first half of 2013

2013-08-12

Berlin, 08/12/2013 – First Sensor AG, a leading provider of high-quality, customer-specific sensor solutions that is listed in the Prime Standard, is presenting its provisional figures for the first half of financial year 2013 today.

Consolidated sales were down 5% year-on-year at €53.4 million in the first half of 2013 (H1 2012: €56.2 million). However, sales in Q2 2013 posted an encouraging increase of 5% as against Q1 2013.
Consolidated EBITDA generated in the first six months amounted to €6.2 million (H1 2012: €6.9 million). Adjusted for extraordinary effects in relation to integration costs in both years and a positive non-recurring effect from the sales of Heimann Sensor GmbH in 2012, EBITDA totaled €6.7 million (H1 2012: €6.8 million).

The First Sensor share posted earnings per share of €0.05 in the first half of 2013 (H1 2012: €0.08). Adjusted for integration costs and PPA amortization in both years and the sale of Heimann Sensor GmbH in 2012, earnings per share amounted to €0.24, as in the same period of the previous year.

These provisional figures for the first half of 2013 reflect the fact that customers have postponed calls-up to subsequent quarters as a result of the observable general economic deterioration, as well as reflecting the delayed substitution of low-margin distribution with the company’s own products in a sub-area.

The final figures and further information on the business performance in the first half of financial year 2013 will be published in the consolidated half-year financial report on August 29, 2013.
