    Key figures for the first quarter of 2014

    x 1 €million

    First quarter of 2013

    First quarter of 2014



    Net revenues










    Net debt





    Debt ratio





    TenCate recorded a decline in revenues of 7% in the first quarter of 2014, with 2% of this being the result of currency effects. The lower defence revenues had a considerable effect on profitability. TenCate does not consider the results for the first quarter to be representative of the year as a whole, particularly in view of the seasonal nature of a large part of the revenues and the low number of major projects in the first quarter. The net debt declined by €37 million, with the debt ratio on balance remaining unchanged.

    For the year as a whole TenCate maintains its growth projection in respect of the trend in revenues for the company, barring unforeseen circumstances.
