Biotest AG. (8/11/16). "Press Release: Biotest Increases EBIT Significantly. Strong EBIT Increase to EUR 18.2 million vs. EUR 2.3 million – Increase of Revenue by 6.4% to EUR 306 million ". Dreieich.

– Strong EBIT increase to EUR 18.2 million vs. EUR 2.3 million

– Increase of revenue by 6.4% to EUR 306 million

– Operating Cash flow increased to EUR 50 million

In the first half of 2016 the Biotest Group recorded revenue of EUR 306.1 million, representing an increase of 6.4% compared to the same period of the previous year (EUR 287.7 million). The markets of North America as well as Middle East and Africa made the most significant contribution to the revenue growth. However, the company achieved the highest growth rates year-on-year in the Central and South America region.

Despite higher expenses for the development of new products and the expansion of the production facility within the "Biotest Next Level" project in the amount of EUR 17 million, the EBIT increased considerably from EUR 2.3 million to EUR 18.2 million. A higher gross profit, a better utilization of the US facility and significantly reduced expenses for the monoclonal antibodies were the main drivers for the EBIT increase. The operating cash flow increased by 59.0% to EUR 49.6 million vs. EUR 31.2 million in the previous year period.

This resulted in earnings before taxes (EBT) of EUR 13.9 million for the Biotest Group compared to EUR 2.1 million in the same period of the previous year. Earnings after taxes (EAT) amounted to EUR 7.7 million (same period of the previous year: EUR -2.2 million). Earnings per share thus increased from EUR -0.05 to EUR +0.19 in the period under review.


The Board of Management confirms the guidance of an increase in sales in the low single-digit percentage range and an EBIT in the range of EUR 33 to 35 million for 2016.
