Schoeller-Bleckmann Oilfield Equipment AG: Preliminary result for 2014 

- Sales and bookings increased 
- Continued high operating profitability 
- One-off effects impact net income 

Ternitz/Vienna, 12 January 2015. Schoeller-Bleckmann Oilfield Equipment AG
(SBO), listed on the ATX market of the Vienna Stock Exchange, posted sound
business results according to preliminary figures for fiscal 2014. Sales climbed
by 6.4% to MEUR 488 (2013: MEUR 458.6). Earnings before interest and taxes
(EBIT) before one-off effects of approximately MEUR 100 are expected to arrive
slightly above the previous year (2013: MEUR 97.7), representing an expected
EBIT margin before one-off effects of 20.5%, clearly above the long-term
average. Compared to the previous year, SBO grew bookings in 2014 to MEUR 497,
up 16.7% (2013: MEUR 425.9). Year-on-year, bookings received in the fourth
quarter also climbed to MEUR 127 (Q4 2013: MEUR 95). 
EBIT in 2014 are impacted by one-off effects amounting to an expected total of
approximately MEUR 18 and containing essentially an adjustment of the goodwill
of U.S. subsidiary Godwin-SBO L.L.C. required by the currently volatile
situation in the oilfield service industry. Furthermore, this amount contains
already announced expenses of around MEUR 5 dedicated to structural improvements
of the company's shareholdings in the UK. 

As the market environment is influenced by the oil price situation SBO expects
the oilfield service industry to develop at a considerably less stable level in
the 2015 financial year compared to 2014.
Note: All figures are preliminary and rounded.
This release replaces the communication concerning the preliminary result for
2014 originally scheduled for 16 January 2015. Final results for the past
financial year 2014 (1 January to 31 December 2014) will be published by SBO on
19 March 2015.
