Interim Group Management Report
General economic situation
In the third quarter of the current financial year the CENTROTEC Group – hereinafter referred to as
CENTROTEC – had to operate in a deteriorating macroeconomic environment. The economic recovery
forecast at the start of the year for key international markets has so far failed to materialise. In addition,
the conflict between Russia and Ukraine has adversely affected markets in Central and Eastern Europe.
On top of this, the German heating market has shown weakness since mid-way through the year, while
climate control business has remained flat.
Financial performance
Revenue
The CENTROTEC Group generated revenue of EUR 146.3 million in the third quarter of 2014. This was
0.5 % less than in the same period of the previous year. In the first nine months of the current financial
year consolidated revenue came to EUR 390.5 million which, based on the substantial growth of the early
months of the year, was 2.0 % above the prior-year figure of EUR 383.0 million. Germany contributed the
largest share of revenue – just under 58 % – followed by the Netherlands and France, each with just
under ten percent.

In the Climate Systems segment the developments observed since the preceding quarter continued in
the third quarter. With the exception of home ventilation with heat recovery, ventilation and climate control
business remained difficult and the overall economic weakness of many countries continued to impact
heating business there. The German heating market has moreover experienced falling sales since the
middle of the year. The slightly increased market shares of Wolf compensated only partly for this latest
development. In the biogas CHP area there was a special boom in the second quarter and early part of
the third quarter because of pull-forward effects in anticipation of regulatory changes. There was a
marked drop in revenue in Austria, Poland and especially Russia and Ukraine. On the other hand revenue
developed positively in Italy, where the intensive sales activities by the sales partner acquired in the
previous year are now paying dividends even though the market remains difficult. Furthermore, business
in China delivered clear growth rates. Overall, revenue for the segment fell short of both the prior-year
figure of EUR 110.0 million and our own expectations, with quarterly revenue ultimately reaching
EUR 109.4 million. Over the first nine months of the current year, cumulative revenue for the segment
came to EUR 283.8 million, an increase of 1.6 % on the corresponding revenue figure from the previous
Business Performance |
5
year (EUR 279.2 million).
The Gas Flue Systems segment increased its revenue by 1.1 % in the third quarter to EUR 26.7 million
(previous year EUR 26.4 million). As in the preceding quarters, growth for the core products for air and
flue gas ducting underpinned this development. Revenue growth was achieved in France and the
Netherlands, both difficult markets which are nevertheless of importance for CENTROTEC. Aggregate
revenue growth of 4.1 % for the year to date, bringing the total to EUR 74.8 million (previous year
EUR 71.9 million), has been driven mainly by the substantial growth figures achieved in the first quarter.
In the Medical Technology & Engineering Plastics segment, third-quarter revenue of EUR 10.2 million
was 4.7 % down on the previous year, when a major contract for Medical Technology had temporarily
boosted the total to EUR 10.7 million. Revenue of EUR 32.0 million for the year to date marginally
exceeded the prior-year figure of EUR 31.9 million.
Earnings
At group level, the third-quarter operating result before interest and taxes (EBITDA) of EUR 20.2 million
was slightly down on the prior-year figure (EUR 20.3 million). The renewed improvement in the gross
profit ratio compensated for the higher personnel expenses. EBIT of EUR 14.7 million (previous year
EUR 15.2 million) was diminished by the higher depreciation and amortisation expense following an
increased capacity buildup over the past two years. The same trend was evident over the first nine
months of the year, too. Charges were in addition incurred for the change in the group’s management.
EBITDA for the first three quarters thus came to EUR 36.4 million (previous year EUR 36.7 million), and
EBIT reached EUR 20.3 million (previous year EUR 22.2 million) due to the EUR 1.6 million increase in
Q03/2014 | CENTROTEC Interim Group Management Report
depreciation and amortisation.
In the Climate Systems segment, the third quarter of 2014 brought declining sales in the German heating
market, compounding the weak sales that had already previously been observed in international
business; this put pressure on earnings. Nevertheless EBITDA and EBIT for the Climate Systems
segment were maintained at EUR 14.5 million and EUR 11.0 million respectively thanks to a successful
drive to optimise operations and a special boom in biogas combined heat and power units at the start of
the quarter. Both indicators had been at similar levels (EUR 14.3 million and EUR 11.1 million
respectively) in the previous year. This represents an EBIT margin of 10.1 % for the third quarter. The
cumulative result for the first three quarters at EBITDA level came to EUR 24.4 million, as in the previous
year. However EBIT of EUR 14.3 million was down on the previous year (EUR 15.2 million). The EBIT
margin for the first nine months amounted to 5.1 %.
The Gas Flue Systems segment achieved operating results of EUR 4.2 million at EBITDA level – slightly
up on the previous year (EUR 4.1 million) – and EUR 2.8 million at EBIT level; this represented a slight
drop compared with the previous year (EUR 2.9 million). In this segment, too, the gross profit ratio
showed a significant improvement thanks to such factors as the adjusted product mix and increased
insourcing activities. Opposite factors included a modest increase in the personnel expenses ratio. The
EBIT margin for the quarter was 10.5 %. The EBIT margin for the year to date was 4.3 %. However the
operating result of EUR 7.4 million EBITDA (previous year EUR 7.6 million) and of EUR 3.2 million EBIT
(previous year EUR 4.1 million) included an extraordinary charge of EUR 1.0 million in the first quarter for
the change in the company’s management.
The Medical Technology & Engineering Plastics segment posted EBITDA of EUR 1.5 million (previous
Business Performance |
6
year EUR 1.9 million) and EBIT of EUR 0.9 million (previous year EUR 1.3 million) for the third quarter.
These reductions are attributable to a major contract which temporarily increased revenue in the previous
year. The EBIT margin thus came to 8.5 % for the quarter (previous year 11.8 %), The operating result for
the first nine months was unchanged from the previous year, reaching EUR 4.6 million EBITDA and
EUR 2.8 million EBIT.
The further improvement in net interest to EUR 1.1 million (previous year EUR 1.3 million) in the quarter
and to EUR 3.1 million (previous year EUR 3.8 million) for the year to date meant that with the effective
tax rate remaining broadly constant, earnings before tax (EBT) of EUR 13.8 million (previous year
EUR 13.8 million), earnings after tax (EAT) of EUR 9.7 million (previous year EUR 9.6 million) and
earnings per share (EPS) for the third quarter of EUR 0.54 (EUR 0.56) were maintained at approximately
the same level as in the previous year. For the first nine months of the current year, EPS thus came to
EUR 0.66 (previous year EUR 0.74).
Net worth and financial position
There were no material changes in the financial position of the CENTROTEC Group in the first nine
months of the 2014 financial year. Within the consolidated companies, the only changes of note were
prompted by the acquisition of the remaining 20 % shares in Wolf Italia, which had already been
comprehensively consolidated since the third quarter of the previous year, and the establishment of a
fully-owned US subsidiary in the Medical Technology area.
In the third quarter the group’s investment outlay was reduced as planned with the completion of
construction on the new headquarters of the Brink Group, and amounted to EUR 5.0 million (previous
Q03/2014 | CENTROTEC Interim Group Management Report
year EUR 7.2 million). Overall, the CENTROTEC Group invested EUR 19.9 million (previous year
EUR 20.9 million) in the first nine months. This total included EUR 13.8 million (previous year EUR 11.1
million) for the Climate Systems segment, with the new building of the Brink Group accounting for over
half of this sum. In the Gas Flue Systems segment, the investment volume for the first three quarters of
EUR 3.5 million (previous year EUR 6.7 million) was lower than in the previous year, as was the case in
the Medical Technology & Engineering Plastics segment, in which EUR 2.6 million (previous year
EUR 3.1 million) was invested.
The seasonal rise in working capital of EUR 15.4 million or 3.5 % to EUR 70.3 million (end of previous
year EUR 54.9 million) increased the group’s balance sheet total compared with the start of the year to
EUR 454.1 million (end of previous year EUR 438.7 million). Measured against the same period of the
previous year, the balance sheet total remained almost unchanged but the significant increase in property
plant and equipment reflects the temporarily higher investment volume of the past two years. Property
plant and equipment represented 25.0 % of the balance sheet total at the end of the quarter (previous
year 22.1 %). The ploughing-back of profits pushed the equity ratio up from 41.2 % at September 30,
2013 to 45.0 %.

The group’s borrowings of EUR 93.2 million at the end of the quarter were slightly below the figure at the
end of 2013 (EUR 95.1 million), but were EUR 10.2 million below the level for the third quarter of 2013.
However the increased investment volume since the end of 2013 and the higher dividend meant net
borrowings were merely EUR 1.0 million lower than in the third quarter of 2013.
The cash flow from operating activities in the first nine months of the current year came to EUR 9.2 million
(previous year EUR 13.6 million). The slightly reduced earnings, the slightly higher working capital and
the increased amount in taxes paid are the main factors behind the decrease.
The cash flow from investing activities of EUR -19.3 million was below the prior-year figure of EUR -17.9
million in particular due to the increased investment volume in the first half. Over the full year the relative
position is likely to be reversed in view of the current scaling-back of the investment volume as planned,
combined with the rising prior-year basis.
Q03/2014 | CENTROTEC Interim Group Management Report
The cash flow from financing activities at September 30, 2014 was EUR -6.3 million, and therefore well
below the prior-year figure of EUR +8.0 million, despite the increased dividend payment. This is
attributable to the further reduction in borrowings.
Employees
At September 30, 2014 the comprehensively consolidated companies of the CENTROTEC Group
employed a total of 3,247 people (previous year 3,230). Expressed as full-time equivalents (FTE), the
figure was 3,124 (previous year 3,108). The total included 165 temporary workers (previous year 152) at
the end of the period under review. The number of full-time equivalents in the group was thus 0.5 %
higher than at the end of the third quarter of 2013. In the Climate Systems segment, the number of
employees remained broadly constant. The figure for the Gas Flue Systems segment rose by approx. 3 %
in particular as a result of the insourcing measures. On the other hand the total in the Medical Technology
& Engineering Plastics segment fell by approx. 4 %.
The personnel expenses of the Group rose by 2.0 % to EUR 39.0 million in the third quarter of 2014
(previous year EUR 38.3 million). In the first nine months of the 2014 financial year personnel expenses
amounted to EUR 118.3 million. That is an increase of 4.4 % on the figure for the prior-year period
(EUR 113.3 million). On top of capacity-building activities focusing on the Research & Development and
Sales areas, collectively negotiated pay increases taking effect in-year and the non-recurring charge from
the change in the group’s management lay behind this rise. The personnel expenses ratio consequently
increased to 30.2 % (previous year 29.3 %).

Shares
The first three quarters of 2014 saw the trading price of CENTROTEC shares (WKN 540 750 or ISIN
DE0005407506) move between EUR 15.08 and 20.20. The highs of around EUR 20 were reached at the
start of the year and in mid-May. Until the start of July there was little volatility in the trading price, which
in essence remained within the corridor of EUR 18 to 20. From that point on, the shares then lost their
value faster than the market as a whole, closing the third quarter on EUR 15.24. The preceding quarter
had closed on EUR 18.18 and the shares had ended 2013 trading at EUR 18.60. Measured against the
SDAX, in which CENTROTEC shares are listed, this was a deterioration in the trading price of almost 20
percent in the first half of the year. After the reporting date there was a further drop in the share price to
Q03/2014 | CENTROTEC Interim Group Management Report
around EUR 13.

At September 30, 2014, 17,646,525 no-par value ordinary shares of CENTROTEC Sustainable AG were
approved for trading at Deutsche Börse, of which 12,080 were held by the company. The total number of
shares multiplied by the end-of-quarter trading price of EUR 15.24 at September 30, 2014 produced
market capitalisation of EUR 269 million for the CENTROTEC Group.
CENTROTEC is not aware of any major developments affecting its share ownership structure compared
with the end of the 2013 financial year. The family of Supervisory Board Chairman Guido A Krass has
remained the principal shareholder of CENTROTEC Sustainable AG since the IPO. That group aside,
there are no indications that other shareholders hold a percentage interest in CENTROTEC running into

accordance with Section 26 (1) of the German Securities Trading Act (WpHG) have been reported by
institutional investors in the year to date. Detailed information on such changes is regularly updated and is
available on the homepage of CENTROTEC Sustainable AG at (http://www.centrotec.de/investorrelations/aktie/veroeffentl-26-abs-1-wphg.html).
Opportunities and risks
The opportunities and risks presented in the 2013 Annual Report remain valid. Nor have the
assessments, the methods of risk identification and the measures derived from them for the controlling of
risks changed materially compared with the view presented in the 2013 Group Management Report.
The situation in Ukraine has escalated further in recent months. The resulting impact on economic
development throughout Europe, but especially in Eastern Europe, is already being felt in a number of
markets, including away from the two countries directly involved. However the further consequences are
still very difficult to assess. CENTROTEC is monitoring developments very closely and adopting due
caution in its approach to the markets in the countries and regions affected. In the first nine months of
2014, as in the previous year, CENTROTEC’s revenue share from Russia and Ukraine was less than
2 %.
The details of the amendment to the German Renewable Energies Act that passed into law on August 1,
2014 are having an adverse effect on the sales opportunities particularly for new biogas plants in
Germany. Since the start of this year, we increasingly took action to profit from pull-forward effects. In
addition, we have sought to cushion these negative effects on the subsidiary in question by stepping up
Q03/2014 | CENTROTEC Interim Group Management Report
international activities in the area of combined heat and power units for biogas plants and refocusing on
combined heat and power units that run on natural gas.
Forecast
As a specialist for heating and climate control technology, CENTROTEC profits from the sustained trend
towards improving the efficiency of buildings. However the absence of the generally forecast recovery of
international European markets and the recent weakness exhibited by the German heating market are
undermining this trend from an economic perspective, with the result that the full-year forecast cannot be
achieved in entirety.
Against this backdrop, and taking account of the record result posted in the fourth quarter of the previous
year, CENTROTEC will be unable to improve on its prior-year EBIT. For the full year, CENTROTEC now
anticipates that EBIT will lie between EUR 32 and 34 million (previously EUR 34 to 38 million). Revenue
is expected to be at the lower end of the range previously forecast (EUR 525 to 550 million).

Accounting standards and policies
These Quarterly Financial Statements at September 30, 2014 have been prepared in
accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) for interim financial
reporting issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), as adopted within
the European Union (EU), taking account of Section 315a (1) of German Commercial Code. All
IFRS standards, and in particular IAS 34 (Interim Financial Reporting), that were valid at the
reporting date and the adoption of which was mandatory at that date, have been applied. The
accounting policies explained in the Consolidated Financial Statements for 2013 have likewise
been applied in these Quarterly Financial Statements, except in the case of amendments to
standards to be adopted for the first time, and apply correspondingly. The Quarterly Report
should therefore be read in conjunction with the audited Consolidated Financial Statements at
December 31, 2013. These Quarterly Financial Statements and the Quarterly Management
Report have not been audited in accordance with Section 317 of German Commercial Code,
nor have they been subjected to any scrutiny by an independent auditor.
The reporting date for the quarter for all companies included in the quarterly consolidated
financial statements is September 30, 2014. The financial statements have been prepared in
euros; unless otherwise indicated, the amounts quoted are in thousand euros (EUR thousand).
For mathematical reasons, there may be rounding differences of +/- one unit.
Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements |19
The Management Board points out that the future-related statements made in the Quarterly
Financial Statements are based on current expectations, assumptions and estimates. These
statements are not to be interpreted as guarantees that the forecasts made will prove correct.
Rather, future developments and occurrences are dependent on a wide range of factors that
are subject to risks and uncertainties, the influencing factors of which may lie outside the
sphere of influence of CENTROTEC. Actual developments may therefore depart from any
implicit or explicit future-related statements made.
Corporate and investment structure
All direct and indirect subsidiaries of the parent company and group parent are included in the
Consolidated Financial Statements of CENTROTEC. There have been no materially significant
changes in consolidation since the annual financial statements at December 31, 2013. The first

had already been comprehensively consolidated since last year. The purchase price was
EUR 135 thousand. Additional goodwill of EUR 273 thousand was generated. In addition
