Technology specialist HÖRMANN Finance GmbH increased its consolidated sales from EUR 418.0 million to EUR 435.4 million in the 2015 financial year and generated positive EBIT of EUR 11.9 million following a slightly negative figure in the previous year (EUR -0.4 million). All three divisions – Automotive, Engineering and Communication – made positive earnings contributions. The main reasons for the positive business development were the capacity adjustment measures in the Automotive segment that were initiated in 2014, which have led to a reduction in staff costs in particular, as well as the improvement in gross profit due to optimised material usage. Consolidated net income after taxes improved to EUR 6.2 million after a net loss of EUR -10.1 million in the previous year.
