Frankfurt/Main, 6 February 2013. The Amadeus FiRe group has closed fiscal
year 2012 with consolidated sales of EUR 137.0m (prior year EUR 130.1m)
successfully. This corresponds to an increase of 5.3% despite two
chargeable days less. The increase in sales was caused by the services
temporary staffing, permanent placement and training. Sales in temporary
staffing exceeded EUR 100m for the first time. Only sales in
interim-/project management were below prior year.
The gross profit margin of 42.5% was slightly below prior year with 42.9%.
The selling and administrative expenses rose by EUR 2.0m (+5.9%) compared
to prior year mainly due to the full year impact of comprehensive
investments in the operating business in 2011.
In the past fiscal year the operative group result before goodwill
amortisation (EBITA) amounted to EUR 22.7m (prior year: EUR 22.2m) which is
an increase of 2.3%.
The EBITA margin was 16.6% after 17.1% in the prior year.
Due to the current economic situation, the latest GDP projections and new
collective labour agreements the Executive Board expects a challenging year
2013. Goal for the Amadeus FiRe group is to increase the productivity.
The final figures for the fiscal year 2012 will be announced during a press
conference/analysts' meeting on 20 March 2013.
