Milan, 31 October 2017 – The Board of Directors of Intermarine S.p.A. (a subsidiary of the Immsi S.p.A. industrial group - IMS.MI), has examined and approved the interim report on operations for the year to 30 September 2017.
Compared with the year-earlier period, in the nine months to 30 September 2017 Intermarine reported a strongly improved positive performance, with increases in all the main indicators driven by production progress on current contracts.
Intermarine Value of Production for the nine months to 30 September 2017 amounted to 80.5 million euro, a significant increase (+36.3 million euro) over 44.2 million euro in the year-earlier period.
The Value of Production breakdown was as follows:
Ebitda was 16.5 million euro, a sharp improvement from 1.3 million euro in the first nine months of 2016.
The Ebitda margin was 20.5%.
Ebit was positive at 14.8 million euro (0.5 million euro at 30 September 2016). The Ebit margin was positive at 18.3%
The company posted a net profit of 7.7 million euro for the first nine months to 30 September 2017, a strong improvement from the loss of 1.6 million euro in the first nine months of 2016. The return on value of production was 9.5%. The profit increase consolidates the growth trend reported in the first half on the completion of Intermarine’s turnaround and reflects the successful management action taken in the past few years and growing international appreciation, above all for the military division, an example of state- of-the-art hi-tech engineering
The Intermarine order book at 30 September 2017 stood at approximately 236 million euro, guaranteeing production operations for at least the next three years.
Net financial debt at 30 September 2017 was 53.5 million euro, an improvement of 28.5 million euro from 82 million euro at 30 September 2016 and of 13.8 million euro from the net financial position at 31 December 2016 (67.3 million euro).
The total company workforce numbered 275 employees at the end of September 2017, steady with the figure at 31 December 2016.
In addition to the information published at the time of approval of the 2017 half-year results (directors’ meeting of 24 July 2017):
On 21 June, Intermarine announced the delivery of a minesweeper to a leading navy active in the Mediterranean. The vessel, which was delivered on schedule, is the first unit of a larger order, and complies with the highest quality standards.
In September, the first high-speed multipurpose patrol boat for the Italian Navy was transferred from the Sarzana shipyard to the Messina shipyard, for engineering work and the outfitting of the hull.
Intense international commercial activity will continue in 2017, with a specific focus on Asia and Europe.
Positive management of the orders acquired in Mediterranean Basin countries will also continue. Intermarine management will pursue every opportunity to contain direct and indirect costs and overheads.
Over the next two financial years (2018 and 2019) the Company projects an additional improvement
in production volumes and profits, and consequently an increase in shareholders' equity and a reduction in financial exposure.
