Financial figures for 2013

Stühlingen, 14 November 2014 – Sto SE & Co. KGaA, a major international manufacturer of products and systems for building coatings, recorded consolidated turnover of EUR 927.9 million in the first nine months of 2014. This amounts to a 4.0% rise compared with the prior-year figure of EUR 892.0 million. Following a very strong start to 2014, business experienced a surprisingly significant slowdown and continued to fall short of expectations over the course of the year.

Foreign turnover rose by 4.4 % to EUR 502.1 million from January to September 2014 (previous year: EUR 481.0 million), with demand varying from segment to segment. De-mand in the Western Europe segment, in particular, was appreciably down on the year in the third quarter of 2014: German-speaking regions and France were the main areas to record losses. The Northern/Eastern Europe segment continued to record slight growth in the summer months, although this became increasingly small. By contrast, the America/Asia segment benefited from a clear rise in turnover. The international share of consolidated business volume as at the end of September amounted to 54.1% (previous year: 53.9 %).
