ESI Group: 2013 annual results

There was a financial loss of -0.9 million euros in 2013, compared with a neutral financial result in 2012. This includes an interest expense of -1.0 million euros and a marginal positive impact of +0.1 million euros associated with currency effects. Indeed, although hedging instruments generated a total cash gain of +0.8 million euros in 2013, this impact was provisioned in the 2012 accounts to an amount of 0.7 million euros.

Attributable net profit totalled 2.4 million euros in actual terms, giving a net margin of 2.2%, compared with 5.0 million euros in 2012, with the currency effect having an impact of -2.0 million euros in this figure. The tax burden, particularly high at 2.7 million euros (52.9% average rate), was notably impacted by a provision for tax risks.

Solid financial structure

The Group had 10.7 million euros in available cash at the end of 2013. Net debt was €14.0 million vs. €10.9 million at January 31, 2013, whilst gearing (net debt over shareholders’ equity) was limited to 17.5%, an improvement on the figure of 14.1% at the end of 2012.

At January 31, 2014, ESI Group also held 6.92% of its capital in treasury stocks.
