Annual Results 2013: Conzzeta records substantial increase in profits

Zurich, March 26, 2014 – Conzzeta AG increased operating profit (EBIT) to CHF 87.7 million in the 2013 business year (previous year: CHF 55.3 million), corresponding to an EBIT margin of 7.3% of net revenues. Adjusted for special items related to the employee pension funds of CHF positive 4.1 million (CHF negative 12.7 million), the increase was 23%. EBIT therefore rose disproportionately to revenues, which came in 2.8% to CHF 1,194.0 million (CHF 1,161.5 million). At the Annual General Meeting, the Board of Directors will propose a capital reduction instead of a dividend, with a payout of CHF 90 per bearer share and CHF 18 per registered share.
