KEY TAKEAWAYS
• BASF reported good quality Q1 results with significantly better-than-expected
earnings in its Chemicals activities and in Agricultural Solutions.
• EBIT before special items in Oil & Gas was higher than expected as well, but this,
in our view, was mainly driven by a one-off impact in Natural Gas Trading.
• The Others segment was significantly impacted by an increase in provisions for
the long-term incentive programme and therefore showed much higher costs
than expected.
• A higher-than-expected tax rate led to a miss in EPS.
• Operating cash flow was strong and improved 37%; the FCF increased by
€ 350 m.

KEY TAKEAWAYS
• The sales figures were surprisingly strong, most likely due to positive FX effects.
• The adj. EBIT was more or less in line with our forecasts and street expectations.
• Integration costs and one-off expenses for Veyance burdened the results by
€ 37 m
• Conti considers its start to the year to be very encouraging as the end markets
were only sluggish in its view. We expect an improvement of the replacement
tyre market in Europe as well as an uptick in European car production in the
months ahead
• Conti sales and earnings are expected to improve in the coming quarters,
according to CEO Degenhart

KEY TAKEAWAYS
• Fuchs Petrolub benefited from positive FX effect in Q1 and therefore showed
higher-than-expected sales compared to consensus expectations.
• The EBIT beat consensus expectations and slightly missed BHLe.
• The main disappointment in our view is the EBIT margin of only 16.6%. We had
expected 17% and the consensus forecast 16.9%.
• Fuchs Petrolub has become more optimistic for FY 2015. Should the euro remain
weak, EBIT and earnings after tax are expected to increase by a mid to higher
single-digit percentage. Up until now, the company projected low single-digit
growth.
• In terms of free cash flow, Fuchs Petrolub reiterated its expectation that it should
once again exceed € 150 m.

KEY TAKEAWAYS
• Leighton has changed its name to CIMIC (Construction, Infrastructure, Mining
and Concessions) in an attempt to distance itself from corruption allegations. The
business remains the profit earner within Hochtief.
• CIMIC (HOT Asia-Pacific) contributed € 108.8 m, or 72%, to group EBT (€ 151.2 m).
• There was more good news: The other two regions (Americas doubled EBT) were
also successful in improving their earnings in the first quarter (see table below).
• Hochtief confirmed its outlook for FY 2015 today including growth of 15-35% in
underlying net profit from € 190 m in 2014 to € 220-260 m.
• Strategy remains unchanged: de-risk the balance sheet and improve earnings
quality in all three regions. In Q1, margins improved in all regions, and we
therefore believe that Hochtief is on track to achieving its targets.
• According to ACS’s CEO Florentino Perez, Marcelino Fernandez Verdes might
return to ACS after the successful streamlining at Hochtief and CIMIC. He would
make a good successor to Perez at ACS, in our view, although Perez does not
appear to be ready for retirement.

KEY TAKEAWAYS
• Yesterday afternoon, Leifheit published an ad hoc and increased its EBIT guidance
for 2015 on the back of the Q1 performance.
• The company is now targeting an EBIT of between € 19 m and € 20 m. Up to now
it had assumed that group earnings would be in line with the previous year’s
adjusted result of € 16.4 m.
• The numbers show that the guidance increase was mainly driven by foreign
exchange rates as the performance of the US dollar led to a foreign-exchange
result of € 3.2 m in Q1 2015 (Q1 2014: € 0.1 m).
• Nevertheless the adj. EBIT increased by € 0.4 m to € 4.3 m, which leads to a
margin improvement as we assume a 3.8% turnover increase in Q1 driven by
brand business.
• The turnover forecast for 2015 remains unchanged. Leifheit expects turnover
growth of 2-3% (BHLe: 2.5%).
FIRST TAKE
• As our economists forecast an average EUR/USD of close to 1.15 for 2015, we
believe that the positive dollar effect for Leifheit in 2015 will be around € 2 m.
• Today, we feel fine with our current EBIT forecast for 2015 of € 19 m including
the aforementioned € 2 m result from foreign-exchange rates.
• This ad-hoc should support our BUY rating due to the guidance upgrade, but
more important for us is that the adj. EBIT outgrew sales, which leads to margin
improvements at the group level.
• Our valuation is equally based on our DCF model and the results of our cashflow-yield model. Even though the share is too expensive in terms of the
traditional multiples (EV/EBIT, PER), the dividend (current yield 3.7%) and the
expectation of higher pay-outs make the share appear an attractive proposition.

KEY TAKEAWAYS
• Solid set of results and largely in line with our expectations; EBITDA/EBIT even
slightly better.
• Order intake increased by 6% to € 118.8 m (b-2-b: 1.0x).
• In the Pumps & MC divisions, the passenger car business grew by 18% while the
industrial part declined slightly by ~4%. The EBITDA margin improved to 10%
from 9.3% a year ago. Nevertheless, a less favourable product mix prevented an
even higher margin.
• In the brake disc division, the EBITDA margin climbed from 7.2% to 8.7%
• Free CF came in negative at € -18.8 m due to some WCap build-up as well as a
payment of € 8.9 m to the Chinese JV partner for the brake disc business.
• SHW reiterated the FY guidance: sales of ~ € 460 m and an adj. EBITDA of
between € 46 m and € 50 m.

FIRST TAKE
• As expected, SWH delivered a solid start to the year but some of the 2014 issues
still remain: Very high demand led to additional cost for extra shifts and logistics
especially in the powder metallurgy business.
• No change to estimates required, more details after the CC at 14:00 CET.

KEY TAKEAWAYS
• Ströer held its CMD in Berlin yesterday and focused strongly on the digital
strategy. The CMD was well attended with roughly 60 participants.
• Ströer for the first time introduced a mid-term guidance expecting sales of
€ 1 bn by 2017 (BHLe € 913 m) and an EBITDA margin of 22-23%. Two thirds of
this growth should be derived organically. 50% of sales should come from digital
by 2020.
• Ströer's big advantage versus other marketers is that it mainly markets thirdparty content while most other marketers (e.g. Axel Springer or Interactive
Media) market their own content. However, we expect Ströer to cautiously build
up its asset portfolio and thereby increase margins in the digital segment.
• Ströer introduced a new segment reporting (OOH Germany, Digital, OOH
international). In this new reporting, Public Video will be included in the Digital
segment rather than the German OOH segment. With this move, Ströer intends to
increase transparency, particularly with regard to the highly profitable public
video segment.
• Ströer is the only provider of public video. Ströer holds an exclusive agreement
with Dt. Bahn until 2025, so we see only limited risk of rising competition in this
field.
• Ströer made clear that it looking for potential acquisition targets. However, if it
does not find suitable targets, it would not rule out a special dividend. The
company does not believe that reducing net debt/EBITDA to below 1.5x would
any sense. In terms of new acquisitions, the company is aiming for a ROCE of at
least 15% (in line with the overall business).
FIRST TAKE
• Overall, the CMD confirmed our positive view of the company. We reiterate our
Buy rating.
• We see the new medium-term guidance as a sign of management's confidence in
the success of the current strategy.
