Mattighofen, Dec. 18th, 2009
Earnings Development After the toughest fiscal year in the company´s history (2008/09), the KTM Group is back in the black and achieved preliminary consolidated revenues in the amount of EUR 110.7 m (-16% compared to the previous year) and an EBIT of EUR 6.1 m (+36% compared to the previous year) in the first quarter of 2009/10. The net profit increased by EUR 31.5 m from EUR -27.9 m in the previous year to EUR 3.6 m.
KTM has developed favourably in the - still declining - motorcycle market compared to the current market trend and was able to gain market shares. In total, 17,056 motorcycles (-15% compared to the previous year) were sold in the first quarter of 2009/10. Both KTM as well dealer inventory levels could be decreased by more than a third.
Due to a positive free cash flow, net indebtedness could be reduced from EUR 243.4 m to EUR 228.5 m in the first quarter.
Sustainable effects of restructuring measures KTM´s CEO Stefan Pierer stated the following: "The restructuring measures, which had to be implemented in the previous year, have already shown sustainable effects. For example, total costs could be reduced by more than 30% in the first quarter compared to the previous year - we are, thus, able to make profits again, even if the sales volume is lower."
