Quarterly statement – Logwin with significant earnings increase in the first nine months of 2018

Overall economic conditions

Grevenmacher (Luxembourg) – The global economy still experiences an upswing. However, the momentum of development has slowed slightly compared to the previous year. In the so called emerging markets the expansion also continued despite the risks of trade conflicts and the introduction of punitive duties. In the German economy the momentum has weakened slightly compared with the previous year.

Net assets, financial situation and earnings position

Revenues In the first nine months of 2018, the Logwin Group increased revenues by 1.3% to 841.8 million euros (2017: 831.0 million euros). The Air + Ocean business segment generated sales of EUR 563.8 million, exceeding the previous year by EUR 11.3 million, mainly due to volume increases. Negative developments of exchange rates and declining sea freight rates over the year reduced the revenue increase. The business segment Solutions achieved revenue of EUR 279.1 million and was slightly below the previous year's level of EUR 280.3 million, due to the termination of special projects and the shutdown of a site.

EBITA In the first nine months of 2018, the Logwin Group generated an operating result of EUR 38.3 million, significantly exceeding the previous year's result by EUR 6.6 million. The Air + Ocean business segment exceeded the prior-year figure driven by an increase in volume and margin. The Solutions business segment increased its result as well mainly due to an significant improved earnings situation at individual sites.

Net result The net result of the Logwin Group amounted to EUR 29.3 million in the first nine months of 2018, significantly exceeding the prior-year figure (2017: EUR 22.4 million).

Net cash flow The Logwin Group's net cash flow after the first nine months of 2018 exceeded the comparative value in the third quarter of 2017 due to the increase in net income for the period.
