Significant growth signals for Bühler in 2014.

The company's order intake grew organically by 9% to CHF 2.6 billion, while its orders on hand grew by 20% to CHF 1.6 billion – both record results in the company's more than 150-year history. Due to long project durations, turnover remained stable at the previous year's level of CHF 2.3 billion. In 2014, Bühler once again invested heavily in research and development, with a total sum of just under CHF 100 million (4.2% of turnover), and launched a considerable number of new products into the market. The introduction of restructuring measures and capacity adjustments led to further improvements in profitability and all of the key financial performance indicators. The EBIT grew by 4% to CHF 145 million or by 40% to CHF 195 million, when adjusted for one-time effects. Net liquidity rose by 23% to CHF 464 million, while equity increased by 8% to CHF 1.1 billion (equity ratio: 45%). “These strong results confirm our strategic direction as an industrial solution and service provider,” says Bühler CEO Calvin Grieder. The company is approaching the significant appreciation of the Swiss franc from a position of strength. “I am proud of our employees, who worked with us, to quickly and pragmatically agree on the necessary immediate measures in order to safeguard our competitiveness,” says CEO Grieder. “Despite the changed circumstances, we are eager to continue our growth path and we look ahead to the 2015 fiscal year with cautious optimism.” Read more
