    TenCate records 4% organic revenue growth in 2014

    Impairment of € 82 million, mainly at TenCate Advanced Armour

    • Organic revenue growth of 4% for the full year 2014; 9% in the second half of 2014
    • Growth in composites, synthetic turf yarns and industrial protective fabrics
    • Expected increase in defense revenues failed to materialise as a result of postponed deliveries of armour orders (vehicle armour)
    • Downward pressure on results due to a substantial operating loss at TenCate Advanced Armour, to lower margins at TenCate Geosynthetics and to increased marketing costs
    • EBITA* € 53.3 million (2013: € 54.4 million); EBITA margin* 5.1% (2013: 5.4%)
    • Net profit before exceptional items € 24.1 million (2013: € 23.2 million)
    • Net result (IFRS) – € 45.7 million (2013: € 19.0 million) as a result of exceptional items, impairments at TenCate Advanced Armour and Xennia Technology
    • Positive cash flow of € 1.9 million (2013: € 42.6 million); increase in working capital as a result of strong revenue growth in the fourth quarter due in part to continuing demand for synthetic turf yarns
    • Net debt € 215.5 million (2013: € 188.3 million)
    • Net debt / EBITDA ratio 2.57 (2013: 2.27)
