(Grambach, 31.03.2014) BDI – BioEnergy International AG has succeeded in completing the turnaround exercise in spite of the difficult market conditions, increasing sales and earnings considerably in the 2013 fiscal year. Sales amounted to EUR 35.5 million and were therefore 19.0% higher than in the previous year (EUR 29.8 million). The operating result (EBIT) improved substantially to EUR 2.6 million from EUR -6.7 million in the previous year and net earnings also increased significantly to EUR 3.2 million compared with negative earnings in the 2012 transition year. A compensation payment received in the fourth quarter had a positive impact on earnings. On the basis of this encouraging performance and BDI’s sound equity position, the Management Board and Supervisory Board will be proposing to the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting on 20. May 2014 that a dividend of EUR 1.10 per share is paid.
