In fiscal year 2012 Group sales amounted to EUR 1.6 billion. Volume decreases in Europe could not be fully counterbalanced by volume increases in Russia and the US; cement volumes declined by 2.5% and ready-mixed concrete volumes fell by 7.6%. Average cement prices decreased in Luxembourg and in Poland, in the Czech Republic they remained almost stable, while they increased in Germany, Ukraine, Russia and the US. About 48% of total Group sales can be ascribed to the division Germany / Western Europe, 39% to Eastern Europe and 13% to the USA.

Group EBITDA of fiscal year 2012 amounted to EUR 284.2 million. EBITDA 2011 was adjusted retrospectively for the first-time application of the amended IAS 19 (Employee Benefits), and thereby increased by EUR 2.3 million to EUR 293.3 million. In 2012, EBITDA includes positive one-time effects in the amount of EUR 4.8 million mainly from the sale
of a real estate property in Memphis, US. Positive one-time effects in 2011 in the amount of EUR 6.3 million derived mainly from the sale of a former administration building in Luxembourg. Changes to the group of consolidated companies had a positive effect of EUR 0.2 million; exchange rate effects increased EBITDA by EUR 6.0 million.

The result before income taxes decreased to EUR 69.3 million (2011: EUR 102.8 million). It was affected by extraordinary write-downs of EUR 20.7 million on already purchased plant equipment and of additional EUR 5.2 million on goodwill in connection with a new construction project in Akbulak in Russia, which has been put on hold for an indefinite period. The result after income taxes was EUR 34.8 million (2011: EUR 73.3 million), and Group net profit was EUR 26.9 million (2011: EUR 65.9 million). Equity ratio increased to 51.3% (2011: 48.6%).

The Board of Management and the Supervisory Board decided to propose to the Annual General Meeting on July 12, 2013 the payment of a dividend of EUR 0.75 (2011: EUR 0.80) per each ordinary share and preferred share for the fiscal year 2012. This represents 48.5% of the adjusted net profit. The adjustment includes extraordinary write-downs on the construction project of a new plant in Akbulak and write-downs on deferred tax assets, which are not cash effective.
