Gamesa has reported the financial results for 2014 year end. The company ended 2014 with net profit of €92 million, i.e. double the 2013 figure (€45 million). This improvement reflects the company’s profitable growth, driven by the increase in revenues (+22%) and profitability (EBIT margin1 of 6.7%).

These results enabled the company to exceed 2014 guidance, improve the outlook for 2015, and resume the dividend 2 (€0.0825 per share).

  • Growing revenues: a 22% increase, to €2,846 million, driven by Latin America, India and China, and by O&M services.
  • Profitability on the rise: the EBIT margin(1) was 6.7%, outstripping the target for the year. At constant exchange rates, the margin was 7.2%.
  •  Reinforcing the balance sheet: strong cash flow, together with the capital increase, provided a net cash position of €143 million.
  •  These results, together with the favourable business outlook, allow Gamesa to upgrade its 2015 outlook and forecast growth for the coming years.
  • Gamesa resumes dividend payments (€0.0825 per share).
