Bertelsmann Announces Preliminary Figures For 2013

Posted at 5:46PM Friday 31 Jan 2014

On the basis of preliminary and unaudited figures, Bertelsmann has increased its Group revenues by about 2 percent to €16.4 billion in the 2013 fiscal year. Operating EBITDA improved from €2.2 billion in the previous year to €2.3 billion. At €1.7 billion, operating EBIT matched the previous year's high level despite expenses and scheduled start-up losses for digitization projects and new businesses. The Group's Return on Sales once again exceeded the 10-percent mark. Group net income is expected to exceed €800 million, putting it well above the adjusted prior-year value of €612 million.
