KROMI Logistik AG: Adjustment of earnings forecast for 2017/18
Hamburg, April 6, 2018 – KROMI Logistik AG (ISIN: DE000A0KFUJ5) announces that the Management Board has today adjusted its earnings forecast for the current fiscal year 2017/18 In the course of determining the preliminary figures for the third quarter 2017/18. So far, most recently in the 6-Month Report 2017/18, the Management Board had still assumed a continuous and significant improvement in the operating result (EBIT) compared to the previous year. However, the termination of the supply contract with a major customer will have a significantly negative impact on the gross profit margin and thus on the company’s operating result, contrary to initial expectations. For the 2017/18 financial year the Management Board therefore now expects the operating result at break-even or slightly positive before non-operating special effects from currency translation and the provision in connection with the resignation of CEO Jörg Schubert. For the sales development in 2017/18, the Management Board continues to forecast growth in the upper single-digit percentage range compared with the previous year.
