CropEnergies with growth in revenues but operating loss
Bioethanol production increased - difficult market conditions put pressure on European bioethanol producers - medium term outlook improved
CropEnergies AG, Mannheim, was able to increase revenues by 6 percent to EUR 827 million (previous year: EUR 780 million) in the financial year 2014/15 (1 March 2014 - 28 February 2015). The main reason for the growth in revenues was the increase in bioethanol production. However, very low bioethanol prices which could not be offset by lower raw material prices put a strain on the result. EBITDA decreased to EUR 25.2 (previous year: 68.5) million. This led to a decrease in operating profit to minus EUR 11 million (previous year: plus EUR 35 million). In addition to this, the consolidated result was burdened by non-recurring expenditures of EUR 37 million by the temporary standstill of the production plant in Wilton, UK. All in all, the company closes the financial year with a net loss of the year of minus EUR 58 million (previous year: plus EUR 12 million). Therefore, there will be no dividend payout.
