ElringKlinger revises earnings guidance for current financial year

- Earnings under pressure primarily from high commodity prices and follow-on costs associated with consistently strong demand in NAFTA region

- EBIT margin before purchase price allocation now expected to be around 7% in 2018, revised downward from original guidance of approx. 9%

- Revenue guidance for 2018 unchanged

Dettingen/Erms (Germany), June 25, 2018 +++ ElringKlinger AG conducted a reassessment of its opportunities and risks for the 2018 financial year as a whole on the basis of consolidated earnings for the months of April and May 2018 and against the backdrop of persistently high levels of general uncertainty - both in political and macroeconomic terms but also with regard to operating activities. This reassessment revealed that raw material prices, particularly for polyamide, steel, and aluminum, have continued to surge. This is to be a seen as a significant additional expense factor within the Group as a whole. Additionally, the consistently high follow-on costs associated with sustained buoyancy in demand within the NAFTA region will continue to exert pressure on earnings. These factors may account for up to two percentage points of ElringKlinger's earnings margin in 2018, as a result of which the company now expects its earnings margin before interest, taxes, and purchase price allocation to be around 7% for the 2018 financial year as a whole. Prior to this adjustment, the Group's guidance in respect of its earnings margin had been around 9%. The Group's revenue expectations for 2018, i.e., to exceed growth in global automobile production by 2 to 4 percentage points in organic terms, remain unchanged.

ElringKlinger initiated a number of measures in 2017 to address the situation in the NAFTA region. In particular, it established the necessary foundations for capacity expansion. Additionally, measures aimed at process optimization were successfully executed by the company. Pursuing a consistent policy with regard to supplier selection and operating with a balanced structure of contractual terms, the Group is also looking to counteract commodity price development for the purpose of mitigating associated risk.

Global demand for ElringKlinger products remains strong. Against this backdrop, the company has confirmed its revenue guidance for the 2018 financial year, the aim being to outpace growth in global automobile production by 2 to 4 percentage points in organic terms. At present, global automobile production is expected to expand by 2 to 3% in 2018.

In connection with this press release, a conference call will be arranged with CFO Thomas Jessulat on Tuesday, June 26, 2018, at 10:00 hrs (CEST) for the purpose of elucidating the points presented above.
