1Q2015: Software AG increases profitability in the first quarter

 

Software AG (Frankfurt TecDAX: SOW) today released its financial results (IFRS, preliminary) for the first quarter of 2015. The business development underpins the company’s continued value focus through profitable growth. The Group successfully expanded its operating margin by an improved revenue mix and by leveraging efficiencies. Accordingly, the recurring business grew by 12 percent to €99.7 million (Q1 2014: €89.2 million), which marks a new all-time-high of maintenance revenue in a first quarter. At the same time, Software AG managed to increase its profitability: With total product revenue of €146.2 (Q1 2014: 146.2), operating earnings (EBITA, non-IFRS) jumped to €48.1 million (Q1 2014: €43.0 million), which is a 12-percent increase year-on-year. This equals an operating margin of 24.8 percent (Q1 2014: 20.6 percent) – an improvement of more than four percentage points. Operating earnings per share went up 18 percent in the reporting period to €0.40 (Q1 2014: €0.34), reaching a three-year Q1 high. Moreover, Software AG recorded positive developments on the balance sheet, which turned cash positive again. The company’s equity ratio increased to 56.3 percent (Q1 2014: 47.4 percent) with shareholders equity growing to €1,105.9 million (Q1 2014: €916.6 million) within one year, which equals an increase of more than 20 percent. Based on solid product revenue, a higher maintenance stream and increasing profitability, as well as initial sales improvements in core markets, and a strong project pipeline, Software AG confirms its outlook for fiscal 2015.
