The Board of Directors of Pirelli & C. SpA today reviewed and approved intermediate results for the 3 months ended 31 March 2012.

The continual strengthening of production in rapidly growing economies and the focus on the Premium segment, which as well as being the most profitable segment is also the tyre market’s fastest growing, enabled Pirelli to end the first quarter of 2012 with further improvements in key economic indicators and profitability, notwithstanding the persistent macro-economic slowdown, particularly in Western economies.

Consolidated revenues on 31 March 2012 totaled 1,556.5 million euro, an increase of 11.1% compared with 1,400.9 million euro in first quarter 2011. The consolidated operating result after restructuring charges was 209.4 million euro, with an increase of 46.1% compared with 143.3 million euro in first quarter 2011 and saw the margin on revenues rise by over three percentage points to 13.5% compared with 10.2% in the same period of 2011. The net result was 125.3 million euro, an increase of 54% from 81.4 million euro in first quarter 2011.

The consolidated net financial position was negative 1,305.0 million euro compared with 737.1 million at end 2011 (negative 712.8 million euro on 31 March 2011), reflecting a normal seasonal variation in the business working capital, as well as payment, of 154.5 million euro, for the acquisition of the Russian plants in Kirov and Voronezh.

For the Tyre activities, which represent almost all (99%) group sales, the quarter registered a further increase in sales (+11.4% to 1,542.6 million euro) and a further increase in profitability which reached the record level of 14% compared with 11% in the same period of 2011. In a market context discounting the global economic slowdown, these results were achieved thanks to the continual improvement of the sales mix – increasingly focused on Premium products – and the ability to use the price lever to offset increases in the cost of raw materials, which in the quarter had an impact of approximately 85 million euro, as well as constant improvement in efficiencies, which totaled 26 million euro in the period.

With regard to the Premium segment, in particular, in the first quarter of 2012 revenues grew 29.2% compared with the same period a year earlier in 2011 to 584.4 million euro, and in the Car business represented 52.6% of the total, with an increase of over five percentage points compared with 47.4% in the same period of 2011.
