Preliminary business figures: STEICO with new record-breaking revenues in 2018

* Above-average EBITDA growth

* Q4 EBIT impacted by increasing costs for CO2 certificates

* Positive outlook for 2019
Feldkirchen (Munich), 4 February 2019 - The STEICO Group (ISIN DE000A0LR936) has published its preliminary figures for 2018 and has recorded new record-breaking figures for revenues of around EUR 252 million (previous year: EUR 230.3 million). EBITDA was up by an above-average 15.8% from EUR 37.9 million in the previous year to EUR 43.9 million. In terms of both revenues and earnings this was the most successful year in the company's history.

Higher costs for C02 certificates in the fourth quarter of 2018
During the course of 2018, the prices for emission certificates in EU emissions trading more than tripled. At the STEICO Group, these cost increases are mainly reflected in the fourth quarter. This had an impact on EBITDA as well as disproportionate on EBIT - due to amortization of CO2 certificates already acquired.

Making coal a thing of the past
STEICO has been investing intensively in the use of biomass for years in order to counteract the rising costs of fossil fuels. For example, the use of coal has already been significantly reduced. Current investment projects include the construction of a fifth biomass boiler, the conversion of an existing coal boiler to biomass and the planned installation of a turbine for electricity generation.

It is planned to convert the Czarna Woda site completely to regular operation with biomass in the first half of 2019, thus completely abandoning the use of coal. The other production sites are also already using biomass on a large scale and should be able to do without fossil fuels in the medium term. In addition to improved climate protection, the STEICO Group is also achieving far-reaching independence from rising procurement prices for fossil fuels and emission certificates.

2019 outlook

The management is very positive about 2019. Both Germany and the other core markets are characterized by stable construction activity at a high level and a dynamic timber construction sector. On the other hand there is still uncertainty concerning the further development of the "Brexit", which is being closely monitored by STEICO's management.

Thanks to new capacities for wood fiber insulating materials and capacity reserves for laminated veneer lumber, the STEICO Group is excellently positioned to continue its growth. For 2019, the Management Committee is thus anticipating sales growth of more than 10% and earnings ratios at high level similar to the past financial year.
