Boryszew Group posts growth despite unfavourable market conditions

In Q1-Q3 2019, Boryszew Group generated PLN 4.8 billion in consolidated revenues, with PLN 321 million in consolidated EBITDA and PLN 79 million in net profit. The Company’s Q3 2019 consolidated revenues and EBITDA grew y/y by 10% and 15%, respectively. Moreover, Boryszew also maintained the dynamics of improvement in the efficiency of working capital management.

In the reported period, Boryszew’s consolidated revenues grew by PLN 140 million, while the consolidated EBITDA rose by nearly PLN 12 million. Despite challenging market conditions resulting mainly from the economic slowdown in Europe, the Group’s performance was positively impacted by the robust results recorded in the Automotive Segment.

In Maflow Group, we have markedly improved management of our production processes and increased the profitability of the Group plants. As a globally operating entity, Maflow is much more resilient to the ongoing crisis in the automotive sector. What’s more, the Group’s portfolio of clients is much more diversified, which is what we are aiming for in the Boryszew Automotive Plastic (BAP) Group as well. At BAP, the sale of tools rose by PLN 42 million in Q3 2019, while the sale of parts remained lower y/y – said Piotr Lisiecki, President of the Management Board and CEO of Boryszew S.A.

In Q3 2019, Boryszew continued to improve significantly its efficiency ratios.

Our net working capital decreased by nearly 28% compared to Q3 2018. In this period, we reduced our inventories by 8% and shortened the receivables turnover by 5 days – Piotr Lisiecki added.

On 28 November 2019, the Group announced the conclusion of a preliminary conditional agreement for the sale of Impexmetal S.A. This was the effect of negotiations which commenced earlier this year as part of the review of strategic options, of which Boryszew informed in its current report dated 28 May 2019.

The offer from the Swedish company Gränges was very attractive indeed. After detailed analysis, we decided that the sale is the most advantageous scenario from the point of view of the Group’s value growth. Boryszew Group will remain the largest producer of non-ferrous metals in Poland. In the area of aluminium products alone, after the sale of our assets in Konin, our production capacity will total 70,000 tonnes (NPA Skawina) – Boryszew CEO Piotr Lisiecki said.

Boryszew Group’s overall production capacity in the Non-Ferrous Metals Segment (aluminium, lead, copper, zinc) currently stands at 350,000 tonnes. Upon completion of the transaction, it will reach the level of 250,000 tonnes.

Boryszew Group improves performance and working capital management efficiency

In H1 2019, Boryszew Group generated consolidated revenues of PLN 3 211 million, with a net result of PLN 73 million and a consolidated EBITDA of PLN 229 million. Boryszew’s performance improved significantly over the last two quarters. The Group recorded an EBITDA growth of PLN 49 million (up by 54% in Q2 2019 v. Q1 2019). The net profit increased by more than 100% between the two quarters of H1 2019 – from PLN 24 million in Q1 2019 to PLN 49 million in Q2 2019. Simultaneously, Boryszew considerably improved working capital management efficiency.

One of the most significant events in Q2 2019 was the integration of Alchemia Group, comprising 6 steel manufacturing plants, into Boryszew Group. Despite the investment and financial outlays incurred for the Group’s consolidation with Alchemia and Impexmetal, Boryszew maintained a stable level of financial debt. In Q2 2019, the net debt / EBITDA ratio reached 3.1 and was only marginally higher than in Q1 2019 when it stood at 3.0.

- At the end of the previous year, we announced concerted efforts to improve the efficiency of asset management in our plants. As a result of these efforts, we managed to reduce the net working capital, among others by reducing the receivables by 17% – said Piotr Lisiecki, President of the Management Board and CEO of Boryszew S.A. - The consolidation of Alchemia Group from Q2 2019 had a limited impact on the results of Boryszew Group in H1 2019. Currently, we are working to achieve full synergy of all our plants. The effects of this work will be visible in the subsequent quarters – Piotr Lisiecki added.

Moreover, Boryszew Group considerably decreased its net working capital. For Boryszew Group as a whole, it fell by nearly 15% quarter-on-quarter, while in Alchemia it increased by 3% in the reporting period.

In particular, Boryszew Group markedly improved the results in the Automotive Segment – mainly due to better work organisation and lower production costs. In Q2 2019, the Segment’s EBITDA grew by nearly 60% on Q1 2019.

- In the Automotive Segment, we improved production process management and substantially reduced the cost of poor quality (CoPQ), including the level of “scrap”. In addition to winning new nominations, we are working on taking over new projects from our competitors, which will allow us to increase the Segment’s revenues in a short time – Piotr Lisiecki commented.

In H1 2019, Boryszew Group spent PLN 89 million on investment projects, mainly in the Metals Segment (PLN 66 million) and the Automotive Segment (PLN 22 million). In the coming periods, the Group plans to implement further innovative projects, which will result in, among others, development of the product portfolio in the Metals Segment, from the wire rod made of high-strength aluminium alloys in NPA Skawina to the innovative aluminium alloy with high magnesium content in Aluminium Konin, to the copper alloy with a new standard of geometric quality in Walcownia Metali “Dziedzice”.

Boryszew Group’s Metals Segment with the strongest performance in FY 2018

In 2018, Boryszew Group generated consolidated revenues of PLN 6.1 billion, with the net profit reaching PLN 141 million. The Group’s consolidated EBITDA was PLN 379 million. At PLN 277 million, the largest share in EBITDA was posted by the Metals Segment, which also recorded the largest revenues of PLN 3.7 billion.

Boryszew Group’s operations are divided into three segments operating in very different markets. This makes the Group more resistant to changes in its immediate environment as the effects of an unfavourable situation in one of the Group’s segments are compensated with results of the other business areas.

In FY 2018, the best results were generated by the Metals Segment whose revenues reached PLN 3.7 billion with an EBITDA of PLN 277 million. Impexmetal S.A. recorded an increase of over 30% in operating profit, further strengthening its market position, similarly to Walcownia Metali Dziedzice and Baterpol, whose operating profits grew by 20%.

“Our consolidated EBITDA grew on the back of higher sales volumes and the improved cost discipline, the growth being mainly visible in the Aluminium Konin plant. We are gradually increasing production capacity in our factories in the Metals Segment. At our plant in Konin, we are currently launching a CAPEX programme for the years 2019–2022 worth PLN 430 million. It provides for the extension of the Foundry and the Rolling Mill Departments, which will increase our production capacities in the area of ingots and rolled products,” said Piotr Lisiecki, the CEO of Boryszew S.A.

In 2018, the Automotive Segment was negatively impacted by changes in the global market environment. September saw a significant decline in car production, which remained at a significantly lower level until the end of December. This was due to the introduction of a new test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO2 and other pollutant emissions of new cars (Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure or WLTP) required for obtaining official approvals.

“The impact of WLTP on the Group’s revenues and operational performance throughout 2018 was significant. The effect of a decline in orders due to the implementation of the new test procedures will still be visible in subsequent periods, but we are taking steps to minimise their impact on Boryszew Group's results. We are optimistic about the future. In particular, the development of the electric vehicles segment looks very promising for us. We continue to invest in developing new products, diversify our client portfolio and secure new nominations on which our operations in this segment are based,” said Piotr Lisiecki, the CEO of Boryszew S.A.

Boryszew Automotive Plastics and Maflow acquired new nominations worth over EUR 388 million, which will be carried out until 2028. Continuous development is crucial for the Group, as evidenced by its intensive R&D activities. Currently, Maflow is the only company in the world using 3D scanning technology in combination with bending machines. The aim of this procedure is to replace the complicated work of the operator with automatic adjustment of the machine parameters after scanning the product. This will shorten the changeover time by 40 minutes and reduce machine set-up waste after changeover by 50%. In cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute, Maflow Group developed a laser welding technology for the components of its products. In the future, the achieved process parameters will enable the use of a 10 times faster technology than currently used, reducing manufacturing costs and improving product quality.

Boryszew ERG boasts innovations for every season

Boryszew ERG, one of the key manufacturers of automotive chemicals in Poland, is planning to enrich its product portfolio with new innovative solutions. Particularly advanced research is underway on a project of an environment-friendly car radiator nano-coolant and an aircraft anti-icing liquid. It is expected to be completed in 2020, which is when the products will be placed on the market. Before that, already in the 2019/20 winter season, Boryszew ERG’s offer will include a de-icing and an anti-freezing liquid intended for the railway sector.

Market dynamics requires manufacturers to continuously improve and adapt their product range to changing needs. Therefore, research and development projects will be gaining importance, particularly among developers of solutions for the automotive sector and the transport sector in the broad sense. De-icing and anti-icing liquids designed for the railway sector will join the Boryszew ERG portfolio already in the 2019/2020 winter season. De-icing of railstock elements is one of the basic operations performed in winter. The formulations under development will be used mainly for de-icing of rolling stock running gear. These elements are the most vulnerable to icing, leading to the immobilisation of trains.

Boryszew ERG is also carrying out important works on an aircraft anti-icing liquid formulation. The ingredients of the compound under development include an aqueous propylene glycol solution, enriched with an innovative package of corrosion inhibitors designed for metals and metal alloys used in aircraft construction, as well as additives changing its rheological properties, i.e. thickeners and surfactants. The final formula will be tested for compliance with restrictive aviation standards in several independent certifying units.

- "Aircraft anti-icing agents must meet the highest safety standards. Planes must be cleared from snow, de-iced and de-frosted to prevent their airfoils’ lift from dropping and to keep their general aerodynamic properties from deteriorating. The increasing number of air operations is also significant; it raises the probability of employees committing mistakes while preparing the machines for flight. At Boryszew ERG, we make it a priority to offer the best and safest technologies", says Marlena Krohn, Boryszew ERG executive director.

Borygo Runway, present on the market, proves effective in de-icing and preventing the icing of runways. The quality of this product is backed up by numerous certificates. More and more professional clients are using it in European airports, i.e. in Poland, Italy and Lithuania. – "We believe that Boryszew ERG will stay at the forefront of this operating segment in Poland. Expanding our offer by adding anti-freezing agents is a natural step forward" – adds Marlena Krohn.

Also, the project “Environment-friendly car radiator nano-coolant with innovative performance characteristics” (POIR.01.02.00-00-0031/17) is of key importance. It consists in developing a formulation and manufacture technology of a completely new radiator coolant and coolant concentrate for combustion engines, currently unavailable on the market. Its innovative character is due to the use of nano-additives which enhance its conductivity and thermal capacity, thus significantly improving the liquid’s ability to receive heat from the engine, increasing, in turn, the life and capacity of the latter. The project is co-financed by European funds under the Smart Growth Operational Programme 2014-2020.

Boryszew ERG is known mainly as the manufacturer of the BORYGO radiator coolant. This flagship product has been manufactured in the company’s plant in Sochaczew for 50 years now. The Company’s offer includes not only automotive liquids, such as the aforementioned radiator coolants and brake and windshield washer liquids, but also a growing number of products intended for the aircraft sector, along with plasticisers, stabilizers and construction materials. The company forms part of Boryszew Group, one of the biggest industrial groups in Poland.

Boryszew Group companies announce a tender offer for 100% shares of Alchemia S.A. (“Company”)

Boryszew S.A., Impexmetal S.A. and other entities have announced a tender offer for all Alchemia S.A.’s free float shares. The aim of the transaction for the prospective acquirers is to purchase 100% of the Company's shares and to delist from the stock exchange.

The price offered in the tender offer complies with the conditions set out in the Act on Public Offering and amounts to PLN 4.80 per share. Subscriptions for the sale of shares subject to the tender offer will be accepted in selected branches of Santander Bank Polska (as indicated in the tender offer announcement) from 31 January to 4 March 2019. The entity acquiring the shares is Impexmetal S.A.

The share price indicated in the tender offer is attractive for the Shareholders, as it is higher than the highest share price recorded throughout 2018, and is a solid compromise between the lower valuation of the Company, which was maintained over the last year, and slightly higher, stable levels of the chart over the previous years. Given the observed decline in investors' interest in the capital market, the tender offer will provide additional liquidity for minority shareholders.

If, following the tender offer, the prospective acquirers will directly or indirectly control 90% or more of the Company's shares, their intention is to initiate the process of compulsory acquisition of shares belonging to the minority shareholders of the Company.

"Upon completion of the tender offer, we plan to withdraw (delist) the shares of Alchemia S.A. from stock exchange trading. Through the inclusion of Alchemia S.A., which is currently implementing significant investment projects, into Boryszew Group, we plan to achieve synergy effects not only in the area of capital effectiveness, but also in the area of our product offer" – said Piotr Lisiecki, President of the Management Board at Boryszew S.A. "Our strategic goal is to create a strong group. This objective may be implemented through a constant development- and product-oriented investment process in the most perspective entities of the group as well as through capital investments. We take into account the potential and similarities of both groups (Alchemia Group and Impexmetal Group), operating in the steel and metal processing sector, and the need to coordinate actions related to the development of commercial activities and expansion on new prospective markets" – Lisiecki added.

All the prospective acquirers (Boryszew S.A., Impexmetal S.A., Ms. Grażyna Karkosik, Mr. Roman Karkosik, EAST-SIDE Bis Sp. z o.o.) control a total of over 66% of votes at the Alchemia S.A.’s Annual General Meeting.

Boryszew Group results stable after Q3 2018

After the first three quarters of 2018, the revenues of Boryszew Group amounted to PLN 4.7 billion while the net profit exceeded PLN 150 million. Boryszew Group’s consolidated EBITDA stood at PLN 311 million – with the Metals Segment having the largest share in it (PLN 226 million) and at the same time generating the most revenue (PLN 2.9 billion).

After nine months, the Group’s strongest results were achieved in the Metals Segment where YoY revenue increased by 1.4% to PLN 2.9 billion. An improvement of EBITDA results was also recorded, totalling PLN 226 million (increase by 4.6%), parallel to an increase of EBITDA margin to 7.9%.

- "Our results after three quarters remain stable, despite a generally less optimistic mood than in the corresponding period of 2017. We have maintained accrued revenues at a slightly higher level than last year but the drop in turnover in Q3 2018 in the Automotive Segment had a negative impact on the EBITDA result in this period. At the end of September, the Metals Segment showed the best results and outlook" - said Piotr Lisiecki, CEO and President of the Management Board of Boryszew Group.

In Q1-Q3 2018, the Group generated positive cash flows from operating activities which were allocated to investments and servicing external debt. The lower level of flows from operating activities was caused mainly by a nominal increase in investment in working capital as a result of increased sales, metal prices as well as building up stocks in connection with the events on the aluminium market and producing injection moulds in order to carry out new nominations in the Automotive Segment.

The situation on the automotive market in the third quarter of the current year was not favourable for Boryszew Group. In September, the number of new car registrations from the VW Group fell significantly (-23.5% YoY) despite a moderate upward trend in the first half of the year. The drop in revenue in the Automotive Segment was mainly caused by a one-off market event – a new test procedure for harmonising fuel consumption and exhaust emission (known as Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure or WLTP) whose impact on the Group’s Q3 revenue is estimated at PLN 57 million.

- "The European Commission has replaced the hitherto used NEDC cycle for testing combustion and emission of harmful substances with WLTP which has led to a significant drop in new car registrations. We do, however, expect positive changes in this area in a medium to long term perspective – for example our key client, the VW Group, has announced significant investments in the electric car segment. Electromobility Centres will be set up, among others, in the Zwickau, Emden and Hannover facilities which are natural recipients of our production plants" – said Cezary Pyszkowski, Vice-President of Boryszew S.A. responsible for the Automotive Segment.

In Q1-Q3 2018, the companies Boryszew Automotive Plastics and Maflow obtained new contracts worth over EUR 270 million, which will be carried out until 2028.

- "The impact of new nominations on revenues will become visible already in 2019. At present the new projects are in the project development stage and in the next step they will be implemented to series production. The resources of our companies from the automotive segment are strongly engaged in this demanding process" – added Cezary Pyszkowski.

The situation on the market for aluminium products, whose range of applications in many sectors of the economy is growing, is favourable for Boryszew Group. The revolution in the automotive sector is leading to light materials, including precisely aluminium, being used more widely, which means opportunities for further growth of the Metals Segment.


Boryszew’s Metals Segment with strongest performance in H1 2018

Boryszew Group – one of the largest industrial groups in Poland – reached PLN 3.2 billion of revenues and PLN 108 million of net profit in the first half of 2018. The main growth driver for the Group’s results was the Metals Segment, which recorded an almost 11% increase in EBITDA (PLN 151 million in H1 2018 vs. PLN 136 million in H1 2017), with a 3% increase in revenues (PLN 1.95 billion in H1 2018 vs. PLN 1.89 billion in H1 2017).

Results after the first half of 2018

Boryszew Group’s EBIDTA amounted to PLN 231 million, with gross profit on sales of PLN 334 million. In the first half of 2018, the Group generated positive cash flows from both the operating and financial activities. These reached, respectively, PLN 89 million and PLN 20 million. However, the surpluses generated by the Group were not retained, as they were fully utilised for CAPEX projects. Still, regardless of the investment expenditure, the Group’s cash balance as at 30 June 2018 remained positive at PLN 171 million.

- "The bar was set high by the results we generated in previous years so our current growth dynamics may look less impressive in comparison. Today, Boryszew Group is a mature holding company and a global player, whose results are stable and predictable for the market. In the current situation, another major results growth would be possible only through implementing a new large investment programme aimed at significantly increasing our production capacity or through further acquisition activities" - said Piotr Szeliga, acting CEO and President of the Management Board of Boryszew S.A.

Growth in the Metals Segment

The Metals Segment, whose sales account for 60% of the Group’s consolidated revenues, recorded a 3% increase in revenues, which at the end of June 2018 amounted to PLN 1.95 billion. This was due to an increase in sales volumes, which occurred mainly in Baterpol, Aluminium Konin and NPA Skawina.

In the first half of 2018, 142,000 tons of products were sold in the Metals Segment. The Segment’s EBITDA increased to PLN 151 million, i.e. up by 11% on the same period in 2017. The Group plans to consistently develop this largest segment of its operations by increasing its production capacity and expanding the product portfolio. As part of the strategy adopted at the beginning of this year, Impexmetal SA – a Boryszew Group company – signed exclusive licensing agreement with the Korea Institute of Industrial Technology (KITECH). The aim of the cooperation is to build a production line for a new aluminium-magnesium (AL-Mg) alloy developed by KITECH. - "This highly innovative product will be characterized by exceptionally high durability while maintaining very good ductility, i.e. by performance parameters unparalleled worldwide. Thanks to its lightness, it will find wide application across many industries, including the automotive and aviation one" – commented Piotr Szeliga.

Positive prospects for the Automotive Segment

In the Automotive Segment – the Group’s second largest segment of operations - Boryszew Group generated over PLN 1 billion revenues, with EBITDA at PLN 63 million.

- "Lower results in the Automotive Segment are mainly the effect of a drop in the EUR/PLN exchange rate. Although sales of tools also decreased, some of the decrease was temporary due to the postponement of implementation schedules for the production of new projects. Last year we received compensation from the insurance policy of the Prenzlau factory, which affected the 2017 results. We are well pleased with the large number of new nominations that we have managed to acquire. In the first 6 months of 2018, their value exceeded EUR 170 milion" - added Piotr Szeliga.

The first half of 2018 saw an increase in car sales in Europe – according to ACEA data, the passenger car market rose by 2.9% compared to the first half of 2017. Boryszew Group is present on the automotive markets of South America and Asia, but Europe remains its key market, accounting for about 90% of the Group’s sales (in terms of sales values).

In the first 6 months of the year, Boryszew Group generated PLN 3.2 billion in sales revenues, with growing geographic diversification: at the end of June, the Polish market accounted for only 34% of the Group’s revenues. Germany remained the second-largest market, with PLN 772 million of sales revenues in the same period, i.e. 24% of the Group’s total sales. The share of the rest of EU countries is steadily growing, reaching over one-third of the Group's revenues (34%). In the following quarters, the Group’s situation will depend on the attractiveness and competitiveness of its product offer, but also, to a large extent, on the condition of the Polish and European economies. Other important factors will be the moods prevailing on the European car sales market as well as the developments on the aluminium and foreign exchange markets. These are the key market parameters for Boryszew Group’s future activities, which, although outside the control of the Company’s Management Board, are well researched by it in the context of potential development opportunities.

Stable results for Boryszew Group after Q1 2018

In Q1 2018, Boryszew Group, one of the largest industrial groups in Poland, recorded PLN 5.1 million of net profit and PLN 1.62 billion of sales revenue. Results in the Metals Segment significantly improved on the back of increased sales volumes.

Q1 2018 results

In Q1 2018, Boryszew Group generated PLN 1.62 billion of sales revenues, compared to PLN 1.60 billion the year before. The largest contributor to the Group’s revenues was the Metals Segment, which, with the result of PLN 978.3 million at the end of Q1 2018, accounted for over 60% of the Group’s total turnover (58.6% in Q1 2017). The second most important was the Automotive Segment, which generated stable results over the same period, reaching PLN 504.7 million of sales revenue. The remaining segments recorded sales on a par with the last year’s figures.

- "The 2017 results published recently showed that the Group has been successfully implementing its adopted development strategy. In the first quarter of 2018, we continued down this way and were building the growth potential for the periods to come. In the first three months, we recorded an increase in sales revenue on the back of the growth in sales volumes to 85.7 tonnes on last year’s 81.6 tonnes" – said Piotr Szeliga, acting President of the Management Board of Boryszew S.A.

The consolidated EBITDA of Boryszew totalled PLN 110.7 million, with the Metals Segment having the largest share in it of more than half (PLN 67.7 million). At the operating result level, the Group generated PLN 75.1 million. In net terms, the Group earned PLN 51.3 million over that period.

- "The lower result achieved in the first quarter of this year is, first and foremost, due to macroeconomic factors, mainly the strengthening of the PLN/USD exchange rate and the growing prices of raw materials, which were particularly noticeable in the Automotive Segment. We are a global company, with over 60% of revenues generated outside Poland, which is why the strengthening of the Polish currency has had a negative impact on Boryszew Group’s results. The decrease in the Q1 result on the previous year was also the effect of a part of the indemnity paid in the first quarter of 2017 under the insurance policy of the Prenzlau plant" – commented acting President of Boryszew S.A.

In Q1 2018, Boryszew Group allocated PLN 96.8 million for investments in tangible and financial assets, which was financed with own funds and additional debt. The debt ratio (net debt / EBITDA) equals 2.3 (that is, a drop from 2.5 in the corresponding period of the previous year) and remains on the safe level.

Growth perspectives

Key for Boryszew Group’s results is the macroeconomic situation in Europe, where the Group generates more than 90% of its turnover. After Q1 2018, the business environment for Boryszew Group’s operations in the EU countries, including Poland, were similar to those in the corresponding period of the previous year.

- "As part of our long-term development strategy, we will continue to focus on bolstering our market position. The Group expects the assets to grow and the profitability of the companies to improve, and thus the value for shareholders to grow in the long term. Both short-term activities and development plans focus on completion of investments carried out in Boryszew Group companies and maximisation of their effects, as well as continuation of asset and organisational restructuring processes in connection with dynamically changing market conditions" – added Piotr Szeliga, acting President of Boryszew S.A.

Boryszew: PLN 204 million of net profit in 2017

In 2017, Boryszew Group, one of the largest industrial groups in Poland, reached PLN 204 million of net profit (which corresponds to a 5.1% increase year-on-year) and PLN 6.3 billion of revenues, i.e. up by 11.5% on 2016.

Results after 2017

Boryszew Group’s net profit in 2017 was higher by PLN 9.8 million as compared to the result obtained in the previous year. Boryszew Group’s EBITDA was PLN 469.2 million, and the operating profit was PLN 335.4 million.

- "The good results for 2017 are the effect of the Company’s continued development strategy and the expansion of its product portfolio. The increased revenues were associated with improving the economic situation on the automotive market, better sales in the Aluminium Segment and the general improved microeconomic situation in Poland and in the euro zone" ― says Piotr Szeliga, acting President of the Management Board of Boryszew S.A.

Results of Boryszew Group have been decreased by reserves made for risks associated with both pending and potential inspection procedures regarding VAT in metal processing companies. The reserve for liabilities was PLN 65 million, and the reserve for contingent liabilities was PLN 38 million. Companies of Boryszew Group, towards which decisions of tax authorities have been issued, announced that they will appeal against those decisions.

- "Our companies within the Group, similarly to the State Treasury, are victims to tax offences, while in the authorities’ opinion, they are the suspects. Entities in the metal processing industries are accused of failure to exercise due diligence when verifying their business partners, while criteria of such due diligence have not been precisely defined anywhere. In practice, a company is expected to detect and predict all criminal actions of its business partners – that is: do something, for what tax authorities frequently require several years of work, and with the use of tools to which we – entrepreneurs – do not have access to" – continues Piotr Szeliga.

- "It is important to note that tax authorities assess the past from a broader perspective, analyse specific situations taking into account the current state of knowledge, while very often it is the case that what the tax authority notices now was not possible to detect during day-to-day trading" ― acting President of Boryszew S.A. adds.

Sales results and a development perspective

In 2017, Boryszew Group developed PLN 6.3 billion of sales revenues, as compared to PLN 5.6 billion in 2016.

- "These satisfying results apply to all segments of our activity. The greatest increase of revenues in the Automotive Market was noted by Polish locations of the Mayflow Group, while the investment plan implemented in our Konin plant had a large impact on sales volumes in the Metal Segment; this investment plan allowed for achieving production capacities of rolled products of nearly 100 thousand tons a year" – explains acting President of Boryszew S.A.

As part of its long-term development strategy, Boryszew Group will focus on strengthening its market position. The Group anticipates an increase in terms of its assets and profitability of its companies, including an increase of their value for shareholders in the long run. Short-term activities and development plans focus on the completion of investments carried out in the Group companies and maximisation of their effects, as well as on the continuation of property and organisational restructuring processes in connection with the dynamically changing market conditions.

Summary of results

A summary of consolidated financial results of Boryszew Group in 2017 (data in PLN million):

   2017 2016  Change y-o-y
Sales revenues 6 290  5 643  11,5%
Operating profit 335,4   264,6 26,8% 
EBITDA  469,2 385,8   21,6%
EBITDA margin  7,5%  6,8%  
Net profit  203,9  194,0  5,1%

Boryszew Group has recorded a significant increase of its value for shareholders. The profit per one share increased from PLN 0.60 at the end of 2016 to PLN 0.80 as at 31 December 2017.


Net profit of the Boryszew Group exceeds PLN 233 million after Q3 2017

For the first three quarters of 2017, Boryszew, one of the largest industrial groups in Poland, recorded a net profit of over PLN 233 million, representing a year-to-year increase of 33 percent.

For the first nine months of 2017, the Boryszew Group produced a revenue in excess of PLN 4.69 billion, a figure eleven percent higher than the one recorded in the previous year. EBITDA reached the level of PLN 393 million after the first three quarters of 2017, which represented an increase of 15 percent in relation to the corresponding period in 2016.

Jarosław Michniuk, President of the Management Board of Boryszew S.A. stated that "A consistent increase in an operating profit is of key importance, and added that The improvement results from our development projects, owing to which the production capacities and unit margins have grown, and from the successful restructuring process in the Automotive Segment in both the Maflow Group and Boryszew Automotive Plastics. Currently, our attention is focused on the development of innovation in the Group and on the works aimed at consolidating the R&D area."

Increase recorded by respective segments

The most noticeable year-to-year increase in revenue produced by Boryszew was recorded in the Metals Segment, reaching 17 percent, which translated into PLN 2.83 billion. The biggest increase, expressed as a percentage, i.e. 22 percent, was observed by NPA Skawina, a branch of Boryszew, and it resulted from higher sales of the majority of wire rod product mix. In the second most important segment for the Group, the Automotive Segment, revenue increased by 5 percent year-to-year and totalled PLN 1.51 billion.

Jarosław Michniuk, President of Boryszew, explained that "An increase in revenue in the Automotive Segment can be attributed to the acquisition of new contracts, mainly by the Maflow Group. The revenue growth in the Metals Segment was influenced by rises in the prices of metals on the London Metal Exchange and larger sales volumes."

After the first three quarters of 2017, EBITDA earned by the Automotive Segment reached the level of PLN 149 million, thus improving the result recorded in the previous year by 48 percent. The situation in the Metals Segment was also better – EBITDA totalled PLN 216 million and was 10 percent higher than the figure recorded for the first nine months of 2016.

Jarosław Michniuk, President of Boryszew, commented that "The Automotive Segment was the main contributor to the improvement in profitability, as its EBITDA increased by 48 percent, whereas the highest increase in terms of percentage was recorded by the Chemistry Segment (77 percent)."

International situation

Over the first nine months of 2017, the average prices of four metals, which are basic for the Boryszew Group, increased significantly, i.e. aluminium (by 23 percent), copper (by 26 percent), lead (by 27 percent) and zinc (by 42 percent).

For the Automotive Segment, accounting for more than 30 percent of the turnover of the Boryszew Group, a growth in the sales of cars was important. According to the data provided by ACEA, over the first three quarters of 2017, the European passenger car market grew by 3.7 percent in comparison with the corresponding period of 2016. After the first three quarters of 2017, the Volkswagen Group, which is the key account of Boryszew in the Automotive Segment, recorded a year-to-year increase in car sales in Europe of 2.4 percent.



In the first quarter of 2017 Boryszew, one of the largest industrial groups in Poland, achieved net profit in the amount of PLN 78 million (increase by 77% y/y), EBITDA of PLN 128.3 million (increase by 30% y/y) and PLN 93.6 million of operating profit (increase by over 40% y/y).

The results for the first quarter of 2017

The net profit of the Boryszew Group in the first quarter of 2017 was over PLN 78.1 million and it was higher by PLN 34 million than the net profit achieved in the corresponding period in the previous year. The EBITDA of the Boryszew Group was PLN 128.3 million, while the operating profit was PLN 93.6 million.

The first quarter of 2017 was another good period for our Group. "As expected, we have improved the results in the automotive segment as much as possible, both in Maflow and in Boryszew Automotive Plastics. We continue to optimise the production processes in this field and increase the margins. In the Metals segment, the first quarter has brought an expected improvement in the aluminium products and a quite varied situation in other plants of the Segment," says Jarosław Michniuk, President of the Management Board of Boryszew S.A. "One should also note the improvement in the Chemicals segment, particularly in Boryszew S.A. ERG branch, due to, among others, introduction of new products," the CEO of Boryszew adds.

In 2016, GK Boryszew generated PLN 1.60 billion in sales revenue, against PLN 1.48 billion in the corresponding period in the previous year.

"Over 8% of the revenue increase results mainly from the improved sales volumes in the Metals segment, the increase in metals prices in the LME exchange, and improved sales to the key customer in the Maflow segment," the CEO of Boryszew explains.

Forecast of EBITDA results and net profit of Boryszew Group in 2017

In March, the Boryszew Group published a forecast for 2017. It assumes an increase in net profit to PLN 305.5 million and an increase of EBITDA to PLN 539.7 million.
"The very good results of the first quarter confirm the accuracy of our forecasts," says Jarosław Michniuk. "PLN 78 million in net profit and over PLN 128 million in EBITDA profit are respectively 25.6% and 23.8% of the forecast. As for today, we do not see the risks for the implementation of our ambitious plans for this year," the CEO of Boryszew adds.


Boryszew, the largest Polish automotive manufacturer, has concluded works related to the launch of the plant in Prenzlau. On 19 April 2017, a batch production of plastic galvanised automotive components officially started. The value of the project was EUR 22 million which makes it one of the largest Polish greenfield projects in Germany.

Boryszew has concluded a project in German town of Prenzlau that is the key to the growth of the automotive segment. In the hall of approx. 14.5 thousand m2, one of the most modern technological lines in Europe has been created, intended for galvanisation of plastic parts, with a capacity of 400 thousand m2 of galvanised surface per year. The components manufactured in it will go to Volkswagen, Audi, BMW, Daimler, and Toyota cars.

"Our new plant in Prenzlau will have a very important role in terms of the implementation of the assumption of the automotive segment growth," says Jarosław Michniuk, the President of the Management Board of Boryszew S.A. "We are increasing the production capacity in terms of galvanised products by four times and the efficiency by using extremely high abilities of our employees and the latest production solutions," the CEO of Boryszew adds.

"I am glad that the construction works went extremely smoothly," says Lutz Suhrbier, the manager of the Prenzlau plant. "Boryszew is one of the largest employers in the region, therefore, it was important for us to quickly finish the investment process. There had been only 13 months from the completion of the necessary project documents to obtaining the full production capacity."

Results in 2016

The net profit of the Boryszew Group in 2016 was over PLN 191 million; it was higher by PLN 107.5 million than the result achieved in the corresponding period in the previous year. The EBITDA of the Boryszew Group was PLN 382.2 million, while the operating profit of the Boryszew Group was PLN 229 million.
"The 2016 results are definitely better than the ones achieved in the previous year. In our view, the most important result is the increase in the operating profit. It is mainly due to the effects of the restructuring activities in the automotive segment, a significant 30% increase in sales of the Maflow Group, and the increase in product prices in the BAP Group," says Jarosław Michniuk, President of the Management Board of Boryszew S.A. "In the non-ferrous metals segment, the results of the Aluminium Smelter in Konin are the key to achieving such good results. It is the effect of the implemented investment programme aimed at an increase of the share in the sales of highly processed specialised articles for the automotive and packaging segments. The investments have resulted in an increase in both productivity and achieved margins, the CEO of Boryszew adds.
In 2016, GK Boryszew generated PLN 5.58 billion in sales revenue, against PLN 5.68 billion in 2015.
“A slight decrease in revenue of the Boryszew Group is caused by the reduction in sales volume in the metals segment and the end of the low-margin operating activity of Boryszew S.A. Commercial Branch," the CEO of Boryszew explains

Forecast of EBITDA results and net profit of Boryszew Group in 2017

The Boryszew Group have published a forecast for 2017. It assumes an increase in net profit to PLN 305.5 million and an increase of EBITDA to PLN 539.7 million. The key assumptions for the forecast are the USD/PLN exchange rate at PLN 3.9, EUR/PLN at PLN 4.3, and WIBOR at 1.65%.
"The forecast of the Group's results published today is based on a few solid foundations," says Jarosław Michniuk. "The key is to improve profitability while maintaining the current sales levels in the BAP Group. The other factor is an increase in sales and improvement of operational efficiency in Maflow. We also assume an increase in profitability in the non-ferrous metals segment which will largely a result of the implementation of investment programmes in the Aluminium Konin Smelter and NPA Skawina," the CEO of Boryszew adds

Boryszew Group with over PLN 172 million of net profit in 2016 Q3 results

The biggest Polish automotive producer, Boryszew Group, made a net profit of PLN 172 million (giving PLN 111.3 million growth y/y), PLN 333.6 million in EBITDA (giving PLN 138.8 million growth y/y), PLN 243.9 million profit on operating activities (giving PLN 136.7 million y/y).

2016 Q3 results prove the Group’s positive condition. It is central to the Group to maintain our automotive companies. Maflow Group, a manufacture of car wiring systems, has performed significantly better. It is also noticeable how Polish plants in Tychy and Chełmek as well as Boryszew Automotive Plastics have improved their results. Yet another quarter proves that restructuring efforts have a solid influence on every level of financial statement. What’s more important we keep gaining new contracts, says Jarosław Michniuk, CEO of Boryszew Group SA. Non-ferrous metal segment, Walcownia Metali Dziedzice in particular, improved sales supplying building sector in Poland. Huta Aluminium w Koninie consistenly increases unit margins as a result of various investments. The sale of Łucka building has also affected the final Q3 results, he adds.

Q3 2016 resulted in PLN 4.17 billion of sales revenue compared to PLN 4.34 billion Q3 2015.

Metal prices on LSE and the Group’s sales restructure resulted in a slight decline in sales, CEO of Boryszew Group explains.

Maflow plant in Mexico starts new projects

In November, the latest Boryszew Group plant – Maflow Mexico – starts production of dedicated car components for VW Teramont. It is another project for the European automotive giant, Volkswagen Group. The project is planned to be run till 2022.

Maflow Mexico was built in Q1 2016 and immediately started the production. The plant was built both to meet the needs of Boryszew’s main business partner in car segment – Volkswagen Group and to cater to highly promising NAFTA markets.

The building and validating the factory itself was succeeded really smoothly. Just as we planned, we have been also implementing the project for Audi for several months now. We produce A/C wiring dedicated for Audi Q5 model, says Marek Mroczkowski, Managing Director at Boryszew SA, Maflow branch.

In November 2016, Mexican plan will start implementing the next project for VW BSUV dedicated for VW Teramont cars.

We focus our efforts on continuous increase of production capacity of Silao plant. Q3 paved the way for key projects for VW – Tiguan, Jetta and Golf. It will provide us with the expected volumes for VW and Audi, says Cezary Pyszkowski, Board Member of Boryszew, who is responsible for the development of automotive segment.

New board management members at Boryszew SA

On 6 September 2016, Supervisory Board of Boryszew SA has appointed Jarosław Michniuk as a Chief Executive Officer. He replaced Piotr Szeliga who will remain on the company’s board and will be responsible for the metals division development.


Boryszew’s Management Board has also appointed Aleksander Baryś, who is now responsible for managing financial activities.


We have decided to introduce new Management Board members primarily to accelerate the dynamic growth of production and our business activities abroad. In just a few years, we have become an international company with revenues exceeding billion US dollars. We now want to maintain this growth and strengthening the company’s structure is one of the ways to do it.
Jarosław Michniuk, who will start operating in October, has extensive international management experience in managing international corporate structures. It is perfectly in line with our growth plans, says Janusz Siemieniec, Chairman of Supervisory Board at Boryszew S.A. – W nowym składzie, członkowie Zarządu odpowiedzialni będą za poszczególne segmenty biznesowe Grupy: Piotr Szeliga – za segment metalowy, Cezary Pyszkowski – za motoryzację, Mikołaj Budzanowski – za projekty rozwojowe, a Aleksander Baryś będzie odpowiedzialny za finanse Grupy – adds Siemieniec. – Each board member will be responsible for separate business segments: Piotr Szeliga for metals division, Cezary Pyszkowski for car division, Mikołaj Budzanowski for development projects and Aleksander Baryś for the company’s financial activities.

Boryszew Group: over 95 million of net profit in 2016 1H

First six months in 2016 at Boryszew Group resulted in PLN 96 million of net profit (giving PLN 42.1 million growth y/y), PLN 155 million of profit on operating activities (giving PLN 86 million y/y) and PLN 214 million in EBITDA (giving 68 per cent growth y/y).


2016 1H results


First-half profit on operating activities of Boryszew Group is PLN 154.9 million which proved an increase compared to last year’s PLN 86 million. Boryszew Group’s EBIDTA is PLN 213.9 million while net profit is PLN 95.7 million.

First six months show the significant impact of automotive division on the overall results. Over PLN 50 million of profit on operating activities, which last year was proving to be a loss, is a clear proof of the successful restricting process and assures us about the chosen direction. It is worth noticing that Maflow and BAP has both contributed to such positive results, says Piotr Szeliga, CEO at Boryszew SA. Non-ferrous metals division results are consistently driven by the performance of Huta Aluminium in Konin. The results are stimulated by investments having a crucial effect on production capacity in the production division with highest margins. A slight decrease was noted by NPA Skawina and it was mainly due to sales receivables at one of the main clients, he adds. For Walcownia Metali Dziedzice it is yet another fruitful quarter which noted record-breaking operating results, with increasing volumes and good prices. We hope to continue this trend.

After first six months of 2016, Grupa Boryszew noted PLN 2.85 billion of sales revenue, compared to PLN 3.06 billion in 1H 2015.

A slight drop of sales revenue was mainly a result of metal prices drop on LSE. The prices of raw materials which are core for our business have dropped by 3 per cent up to 6 per cent. A subtle sales volumes drop, primarily in trade sector, is due to both our decision about extinguishing the trading activities and sales restructure, Szeliga adds.


Boryszew signs bank financing for restoring productive capacity in Prenzlau

Boryszew has signed bank financing with Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego (BGK) for restoring plant productive capacity. Prenzlau’s plant provides plastic injection moulding solutions and produces galvanized elements for motor industry. The investment is co-financed by Land Brandenburg in co-operation with PKO Bank Polski Niederlassung Deutschland.


A total cost of € 21 million of Prenzlau’s investment helps not only to regain lost potential but also to take technological leap forward and – most importantly – significantly improve the productive capacity. The plant of 15,000 square metres will operate with modern assembly line galvinising plastic elements with overall capacity of 400,000 square metres per year. The factory will be officially launched by the end of 2016.

“The plant in Prenzlau is key for the development of our motor sector. It will provide a competitive advantage thanks to modern and unique technologies at European level,” says Cezary Pyszkowski, Board Member of Boryszew SA.

„One of the main reason to decide about such major investment is the potential of our well-trained and motivated staff. I am truly glad that I can now officially announce this next step as it is crucial for us,” says Lutz SuhrbierGeneral, Manager at Boryszew OberflächentechnikDeutschland GmbH

“Foreign investment financing is still quite rare in Polish banking. BGK is the ultimate predecessor and its goal is to build strong national banking which supports enterprise. We provided long-term financing and it’s much longer than this offered by other commercial banks. Based on that we are able to meet these undertakings and we can assist Boryszew with international expansion on very demanding German market,” adds Dariusz Kacprzyk, CEO of Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego.

The investment will be financed with compensation funds from destroyed plant during the fire, a loan, the company’s own funds and additional funding that Boryszew proceeds to obtain from Investitionsbank des Landes Brandenburg (ILB). The investment is also supported by Bank Polski Niederlassung Deutschland.

Boryszew ERG with new patent

Boryszew ERG Branch in Sochaczew received a patent for a new method of obtaining bis(2-ethylhexyl) terephthalate. It will help the company to expand its product portfolio, mainly the manufacture of toys and other PVC products.


Boryszew ERG’s new patent is a response to dioctyl phthalate withdrawal as it was classified as a SVHC (substance of very high concern) by Annex XIV of REACH Regulation.
’’Bis(2-ethylhexyl) terephthalate is a new generation, non-toxic, highly functional plasticizer with great parametres. Bringing it to the market cuts off the risks of the use of phthalate plasticisers and its damaging effect on health and environment,’’ said Ireneusz Dusiński, co-founder of patented method.
‘’Having terephthalate in our portfolio strengthens our market position in the segment of PVC processing. It also helps to expand other Boryszew segments where phthalate is prohibited or significantly restricted due to its damaging influence i.e. food contact products. Currently, there are only two terephthalate producers in Poland,’’ – said Marlena Krohn, Managing Director, Boryszew ERG Branch in Sochaczew.
A new method of obtaining bis(2-ethylhexyl) terephthalate is yet not the only achievement of Boryszew ERG. The company introduced an innovative and effective aircraft deicer using a formic acid.

Automotive income increased by PLN 115 million having operating income of PLN 24 million compared to PLN 2.3 million in corresponding period of 2013. What’s more important, both Maflow and BAP noted a valid improvement’’, says Piotr Szeliga, President of the Board of Boryszew S.A. ‘’The performance of aluminium sector was slightly weaker compared to last year. It was due to temporary slow-down of production capacity of Huta Aluminium Konin to modernise. Once the project is implemented we expect its stable improvement,’’ Piotr Szeliga adds.

It translates into 14 percent growth. Apart from Zinc and Lead sector, non-ferrous metals noted a slight revenue decline which is mainly due to weaker dollar and lower metal prices on LME. It also had an impact on an aluminum segment where plant was temporarily shut down to modernise.", says Piotr Szeliga.

„In 1H 2014 the Company proved a significant increase in debt to EBITDA ratio achieving 3.5 (compared to 4.6 in 1H 2013)’’, Piotr Szeliga adds.

‘’In the third quarter of 2013 we reported a slight reverse of market trends compared to the first half of the year,’’ – says Piotr Szeliga, President of the Board of Boryszew S.A. ‘’Europe’s decline in car sales, affecting the results of Boryszew’s automotive activity, hasn’t yet been compensated by our growing businesses in Brazil, China and Russia. However, the market is now recovering, and combined with Maflow’s nearly completed restructuring and BAP’s rapid progress, the situationappears cautiously optimistic. We are also happy about Impexmetal’s results, particularly in the aluminum and copper segments. We are working on maintaining this trend and further increase of margins and sales volumes,’’ – adds President of the Board of Boryszew.
After three quarters of 2013, Boryszew Group generated PLN 3.7 billion of sales revenue, which is 0.7% less than in the same period of 2012.
‘’This slight decrease in the Group's revenue is related mainly to the automotive market’s condition in Europe,’’ – says President of the Board of Boryszew. "Also, the aluminum segment, despite achieving its tonnages, recorded a sales decrease. It is linked directly to the decrease in metal prices on the London Stock Exchange. Copper,zinc, and lead segments recorded sales volume increases. It’s worth noting that Walcownia Metali Dziedzice achieved historically high results in addition to ZM Silesia Oława Branch delivering steady growth.’’ Piotr Szeliga adds: “What’s more important is that this year’s results don’t include one-off events and this provides a solid foundation for development.’’

''The new projects will provide an income for Boryszew’s Maflow till 2023.

Over 19 million of net profit for Boryszew Group

1Q 2013 results

The first quarter of 2013 brought Boryszew an operating profit of PLN 28 million which is PLN 33 million lower than the result achieved in the same period last year. Net profit of Boryszew after 1Q 2013 was over PLN 19 million.

‘’The first quarter of 2013 reflects the current macroeconomic climate and weaker condition of our key customers comparing to the previous year - especially in the automotive industry,’’ says Piotr Szeliga, Boryszew’s President of the Board. „Boryszew’s metal sector – mainly aluminum segment – provided positive financial results. A slightly worse performance from automotive segment, which was however included in the long-term restructuring plan, illustrates that the recession in that segment was still visible. However, considering the acquired and negotiated contracts and remedial actions taken, growth is expected in this segment,’’ Piotr Szeliga adds.

After the first quarter of 2013, Boryszew Group generated PLN 1.21 billion of revenue compared to PLN 1.25 billion in the same period of 2012.

‘’Boryszew’s revenue decreased by approximately 3.7% compared to last year,’’ says Boryszew’s President of the Board. ‘’However, taking into account a significant weakening of demand due to the crisis in EU countries our achieved outcome is fully acceptable. It is worth mentioning those one-time events which scored us around PLN 17 million had a crucial influence on last year’s results,’’ adds Piotr Szeliga.
