Wacker Chemie AG / Business Figures


Munich, Jul 18, 2016

According to today’s preliminary calculations, Wacker Chemie AG’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounted to some €295 million in Q2 2016 when adjusted for special income. This exceeds current consensus estimates from banks and investment firms covering and rating WACKER. Wacker Chemie AG will publish its final business figures for Q2 2016 on July 28, 2016.

WACKER’s forecast for full-year 2016 is expected to remain unchanged. According to this forecast, EBITDA is likely to grow by between 5 and 10 percent year over year when adjusted for special income. WACKER now expects adjusted EBITDA to come in at the upper end of this range.

Although we assume the expectations in these forward-looking statements are realistic, we cannot guarantee they will prove to be correct. The assumptions may harbor risks and uncertainties that may cause the actual figures to differ considerably from the forward-looking statements.
