Based on preliminary figures, Deutsche Lufthansa AG generated revenues of
EUR 17.0bn in the first six months of 2017 (prior-year period: EUR 15.0bn).
The Adjusted EBIT came to EUR 1,042m (prior-year period: EUR 529m). The
passenger airlines achieved a cumulative Adjusted EBIT of EUR 680m
(prior-year period: EUR 352m). Unit revenues at constant currency increased
by 0.5 per cent on the same period of the previous year (1.8 per cent in the
second quarter). Unit costs excluding fuel and currency effects were down by
1.2 per cent (-3.4 per cent in the second quarter). Cumulative Adjusted EBIT
for the remaining business segments (including consolidation and
reconciliation) came to EUR 362m (prior-year period: EUR 177m). Fuel costs
increased by EUR 223m on the same period of the previous year. All
performance indicators and fuel cost are including the first time
consolidation of Brussels Airlines and the aircraft wet leased from Air
At the end of the first half-year, net financial debt decreased to EUR 1.1bn
(year-end 2016: EUR 2.7bn). Pension provisions came to EUR 8.1bn (year-end
2016: EUR 8.4bn) at an IFRS discount rate of 2.1 per cent (year-end 2016:
2.1 per cent).
As opposed to the previous forecast, in particular revenue and operating
profit developed better than expected due to strong demand. Pre-bookings for
the economically very important third quarter have stabilized.
The Executive Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG increases their forecast for
the year now from an Adjusted EBIT "slightly below previous year" to "above
previous year". The expected organic capacity growth in the second half-year
is expected to be 4.7 per cent. From today's perspective, unit revenues at
constant currency will be negative in the second half-year compared to the
prior-year period. Unit costs excluding fuel and currency effects are
expected to come down slightly in the second half-year. The fuel cost
projection (excl. consolidation of Brussels Airlines) as of 30 June 2017
indicates a tailwind of ca. EUR 100m in the second half-year compared to the
previous year period. The Air Berlin wet lease and the first time
consolidated Brussels Airlines are expected to deliver a small profit
contribution. The remaining business segments expect to achieve a cumulative
profit on par with last year in the second half-year of 2017.
Deutsche Lufthansa AG will publish its detailed results for the first six
months of 2017 on 2 August 2016 at 7.30 a.m. CET, on
Person making the notification: Andreas Hagenbring, Head of Investor
Relations Lufthansa Group.
