  • The company, which specialises in the sale of diet products and dietary re-education, once again improves all its main figures for another quarter, thanks to the positive performance of the international market and improvement in Spain’s domestic market.
  • A new record is set in terms of centre numbers, currently at 2046, after registering 92 net openings in the first 6 months of 2015.


Madrid, 27 July 2015.- Naturhouse, a company specialising in the sale of diet products and dietary re-education, has improved all its main financial figures in the first half of 2015, thanks to the progress of its international business, the improved situation of the market in Spain and the significant increase in net openings of Naturhouse centres.

At the end of the first half of 2015, Naturhouse had registered 2,046 centres, with 92 net openings in the first 6 months of the year – 43% more than those registered in the whole of 2014 and 38% of the guidance for 2015-2016. Naturhouse has also grown its business, with operations in 29 countries, up from the 26 with which it closed 2014, after entering Switzerland, Lithuania and the USA during the first half of the year.

The group’s total sales have increased to €52.6 million in the first half of the year, while earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) stand at €19.4 million, 1.3% above the figure registered for the same period last year. With this figure, Naturhouse has registered an EBITDA margin of 36.8%, higher than the amount registered in the first half of 2014 and above the upper threshold of the group’s target (30%/35%) for 2015 and 2016, while also being the highest in the sector. Net income has improved by 2.4% to €13.3 million from the €12.9 million registered for the same period in the last financial year.

The international area’s positive performance stands out, with revenue and EBITDA increasing by 3.5% and 12.6%, thanks to the positive performance of France and Poland. With regards to the domestic market, a 4-percentage-point increase in income must be highlighted, suggesting the beginning of an upward trend in the Spanish market, which we hope will consolidate in the second half of 2015.

Naturhouse closed the first half of 2015 with a net cash position of €11.4m after having paid dividends to the value of €11.05m, of which €8.5m correspond almost in total to the income generated by Naturhouse Health SA’s subsidiaries in 2014 and the rest to the income generated by Naturhouse Health and its subsidiaries in 2015, up to 16 March, which once again highlights the company’s considerable cash flow generation capacity and its ability to maintain an attractive shareholder remuneration policy (payout >80%).

In this respect, Naturhouse has agreed to distribute an interim third dividend to the value of €3 million (€0.05 gross per share) in September 4, 2015, ahead of its initial forecast of doing so in 2016.

Naturhouse was first listed on the stock exchange on 24 April 2015, an operation through which it captured investors from Europe’s main markets. The group aims to distribute a payout of 80% of consolidated net income and is forecasting net openings of 240 centres between 2015 and 2016, a goal that is increasingly nearer given that, between 31 December 2014 and 30 June, 92 new Naturhouse centres have been opened worldwide, of which 92% are franchises.
