Südzucker raises revenue projections - confirms profit forecast
Half-year operating profit impacted by one-time inventory write-down in fruit segment
The commodity and market reform charges that had been forecast still significantly shaped the 2008/09 business results to the end of the first half of this fiscal year. However, ultimately even the fruit segment, which went into the red in the second quarter due to the inventory write-down, is expected to make a small profit contribution. Südzucker has raised its revenue range forecast for 2008/09 by Euro 200 million.Revenues are now expected to come in between Euro 5.8 and Euro 6 billion (last year: Euro 5.8 billion), based on the solid revenue growth in the first half year. Südzucker confirms its earlier consolidated operating profit projections: Profits are expected to come in between Euro 230 and Euro 260 million versus Euro 233 million in 2007/08.
Südzucker Group expects to harvest 24.1 (28.8) million tonnes of beets and produce 3.7 (4.3) million tonnes of sugar from the beet processing that started in September/October 2008.
The decline is mainly due to the sugar market regulation reforms, under the terms of which Südzucker Group surrendered about 21 percent of its sugar quota to the EU restructuring fund. An additional 0.3(last year: 0.3) million tonnes of sugar are being refined from cane sugar.
