Rise in consolidated sales in Q3 2015 for SOL Group


The Board of Directors of SOL Group has approved the company’s third quarter (Q3) 2015 results, revealing 8% growth in consolidated sales and strong performance in its homecare division in particular.

Consolidated sales of €501m ($536m) were up 8.3% versus Q3 2014 (€462m), while EBITDA (€111.7m/$118m) was 22.3% on sales (+6.3% over Q3 2014).

EBIT of €51.2m was 10.9% on sales (+10.9% over Q3 2014).

In a climate of still weak economy recovery, SOL notes that growth of 8.3% was 4.9% without the effect of acquisitions.
