The Board of Directors of France’s CMA CGM, met under the chairmanship of Jacques R. Saadé, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, to review the financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2013.

Consolidated revenue rose by six percent in the period, to $3.8 billion from $3.6 billion in the first three months of 2012. The increase resulted from three percent growth in volumes carried (2.7 million TEUs in first-quarter 2013 compared with 2.6 million TEUs in the prior-year period) as well as a three percent rise in freight rates.

Profitability rose sharply in the first three months of 2013 with EBITDA amounting to $258 million, compared with a loss of $31 million in first-quarter 2012, for an EBIT margin of 5.1 percent, one of the industry’s highest. Consolidated net profit stood at $102 million for the period.

CMA CGM also continued to strengthen its balance sheet by:
-Sharply reducing net debt to $4.2 billion at March 32, 2013. This was $1.1 billion less than one year earlier and $0.4 billion less than at December 31, 2012.
-Significantly improving equity to $4.2 billion, an increase of $640 million compared with one year earlier and an increase of $112 million since December 31, 2012.

Outlook
Since the Chinese New Year, freight rates have declined considerably, especially in the Asia/Europe market. In today’s still volatile market conditions, CMA CGM should produce better-than-average results thanks to the diversity of its geographic exposure and its ability to effectively manage its cost structure.
