Deutsche Lufthansa AG / Key word(s): Interim Report
Dissemination of an Ad hoc announcement according to § 15 WpHG, transmitted
by DGAP - a company of EquityStory AG.
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.
The Lufthansa Group improved the revenue by 5.6 percent to EUR 6.6bn
(previous year: EUR 6.3bn) in the first quarter 2012. The additional
revenue could however not offset the cost increases, in particular for
fuel. Therefore the Group registered an operating loss of EUR 381m
(previous year: EUR -169m). The net result attributable to shareholders
amounted to EUR -397m (previous year: EUR -507m). It includes a result from
discontinued operations (bmi) of EUR 2m. The figures for the previous year
have been adjusted in line with the presentation for the reporting year in
accordance with IFRS 5.
For the financial year 2012 the Executive Board anticipates an increase in
revenue and an operating result in the mid-three digit million euro range.
Potential restructuring costs in connection with the group-wide programme
SCORE are not included in this earnings forecast and may have an adverse
effect on the result for the current financial year.
The interim report for the first quarter will be published on 3 May 2012.
The information will be available on the internet from 8:00 CEST at
