KHD posts EBIT margin of 7.5% in 2011 despite fall in revenue – modest expectations for 2012

Cologne, Germany, March 30, 2012 – KHD Humboldt Wedag International AG (KHD), one of the world’s leading suppliers of equipment and services for the cement industry, generated Group revenue of € 234.6 million in the 2011 financial year. The 18.2% year-on-year reduction is primarily attributable to delayed projects. However, KHD succeeded in maintaining a largely unchanged EBIT margin of 7.5% (previous year: 8.7%). This was mainly due to the completion of a large high-margin order and a one-time effect related to the takeover of a Russian subsidiary. The Group net profit dropped from € 15.8 million to € 13.5 million, which corresponds to earnings per share of € 0.28 (previous year: € 0.47). The Company does not intend to pay a dividend for 2011.
