Zörbig/Leipzig, January 26, 2015 - Based on preliminary financial figures as of December 31, 2014, VERBIO Vereinigte BioEnergie AG reports an increase of EBITDA to EUR 25.9 million (1 HY 2013/2014: EUR 21.5 million) and EBIT to EUR 14.7 million (1 HY 2013/2014: EUR 10.5 million). For the full financial year 2014/2015 the Management Board currently expects EBITDA to be between EUR 36 million and EUR 44 million and EBIT to be in the range of EUR 14 million and EUR 22 million. In its most recent previous forecast the Company had expected EBITDA of between EUR 25 million and EUR 35 million and EBIT of between EUR 3 million and EUR 13 million. The updated earnings guidance is necessary following the strong second quarter as well as the current high level of orders for the second half of the 2014/2015 financial year. The high level of orders have significantly reduced the risks to results anticipated by the Management Board in connection with the implementation of the GHG quota system from January 1, 2015 which had made it difficult to make forecasts for the second half of the 2014/2015 financial year. All the key figures will be published with the interim report for the first half-year 2014/2015 as scheduled on February 5, 2015.
