Annual Report Magazine FY 2015 - Long-term Gains

COMPANY DIGITALISATION E-COMMERCE LOGISTICS ECOLOGICALISATION EMPLOYEES FACTS & FIGURES 22 AUSTRIAN POST ANNUAL REPORT 2015 Austrian Post has succeeded in announcing solid business results every year since its IPO in 2006. This is reflected not least in the devel- opment of the Post share and the total shareholder return. Even if the share price briefly declined in the second half of 2015, shareholders can still be pleased with the value growth of 163.1% of the original share price since the IPO. LONG-TERM GAINS Post share in 2015 The price of the Austrian Post share was subject to an unsettled development. After starting the year at EUR 40.38, the value of the share rose strongly in the first half of the year. There was a significant correction in the second half of the year. Many analysts attribute this development to increasing macro uncertainties for the economy and the capital market, as well as to conditions in the postal sector, such as more pronounced vol­ ume declines in letter mail, and especially in Austria, intensified competition on the parcels market. The Post share closed out the year 2015 at EUR 33.63 per share (refer to the key indica­ tors on page 79). Solid corporate development in 2015 In spite of the difficult market environment, Austrian Post still presented solid business re­ sults for the 2015 financial year. Group revenue rose by 1.6% to EUR 2,401.9m. More specifically, both the Mail & Branch Network Division (+0.9%) and the Parcel & Logistics Division (+2.9%) posted growth. In terms of product groups, Letter Mail & Mail Solutions (+2.3%) and Branch Services (+0.6%) generated revenue increases, whereas Direct Mail (–0.5%) and Me­ dia Post (–1.7%) reported a decline. The Parcel & Logistics Division showed a varied regional de­ velopment. Significant revenue increases were generated in Austria (+7.4%) and South East and Eastern Europe (+6.6%), whereas the revenue and earnings development in Germany (subsidi­ ary trans-o-flex) was below expectations. Operating EBIT rose to EUR 198.0m in 2015. Special effects impacted the business results of Austrian Post in 2015, as in 2014.
