KHD adjusts forecast

Cologne, Germany, August 12, 2015 – After updating its annual budget KHD Humboldt Wedag International AG (KHD), Cologne, is adjusting its forecast for the 2015 financial year accordingly.

The awarding of several significant projects that were expected in the order intake for the first half of the 2015 financial year has been postponed. As a result these projects are now expected as order intake in the second half of 2015 in the current forecast. Combined with challenges in the execution of individual large projects this has a substantial impact on the forecasted figures for revenue, EBIT and operating cash flow. In accordance with the updated forecast, KHD expects revenue in a range between € 170 million and € 190 million. EBIT is expected in a range between € -30 million and € -35 million. In addition, cash outflows in the operational business and lower advance payments received due to delayed order intake will result in a significantly negative operating cash flow.
