Siemens Orders, Profit Below Estimates; Says Guidance Ambitious

Relateret indhold

By Friedrich Geiger

MUNICH--German industrial conglomerate Siemens AG (SI) on Thursday published a fiscal third-quarter order intake sharply below analysts' estimates and said it is becoming more difficult to achieve its full-year profit guidance.

"We see growing reluctance among our customers regarding capital expenditures and stronger economic headwinds," said Chief Executive Peter Loescher.

The company's net profit of 832 million euros ($999 million) was sharply below analysts' EUR1.32 billion consensus estimates due to a negative EUR443 million pre-tax effect related to its Osram lighting unit.

The company now sees the book to bill ratio for the fiscal year ending Sept. 30 at about one after previously guiding for a ratio of above one, and regards the aim of reaching a profit from continuing operations of EUR5.2 billion to EUR5.4 billion as difficult.

Siemens' revenue in the April-to-June period rose 10% on the year to EUR19.5 billion, above analysts' EUR18.95 billion consensus estimate.

New orders fell 23% to EUR17.8 billion in the third quarter, missing the EUR19.86 billion consensus estimate. Orders were lifted a year earlier by a large contract with Deutsche Bahn.

Siemens said it now aims for a public listing of Osram and the unit's negative effect on profit is due to the reclassification, after the company earlier targeted an initial public offering of the unit.
