Breitenbach, 13 March 2019 - In the financial year 2018, Von Roll successfully continued its recovery trend and significantly improved key performance indicators.

Cash flow from operating activities increased significantly to CHF 21.2 million (2017: CHF 5.3 million). Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) also improved to CHF 25.1 million, up 23.0 % on the previous year.

As a result of the divestment of loss-making business activities and the associated one-off special charges, group sales were down year-on-year by -3.3 % to CHF 321.4 million. Nevertheless, the operating result of CHF 4.4 million was maintained at the previous year's level.

Following the almost complete conversion of the bonds, the equity ratio is now around 66.5% (previous year: 28.2%).

The net result amounted to CHF -10.7 million and was significantly impacted by non-recurring expenses of CHF -9.7 million and interest expenses of CHF -4.5 million for the convertible bonds, which will be almost completely eliminated from 2019 as a result of the conversion that took place.
