VTG Aktiengesellschaft demonstrated sound business development in the first quarter of 2016. With Group revenue at EUR 243.8 million (previous year: EUR 251.7 million), and EBITDA at EUR 81.6 million (previous year: EUR 83.6 million), figures fell just short of the previous year. The Group net profit more than doubled and reached EUR 11.8 million (previous year: EUR 5.3 million). Earnings per share (EPS) even tripled and rose from EUR 0.10 in the first quarter of 2015 to EUR 0.30. Both of these figures reflect the positive impact of VTG’s Strategy 4.0, which, inter alia, strives for EPS of EUR 2.50 by 2018.
