Naturhouse increases its Net Income to €18.7 million and opens 129 stores to reach a new company record of 2,083 centres


  • The company, which specialises in the sale of diet products and dietary re-education, has shown improvements in the main figures of its P&L account for the third consecutive quarter, due to the positive development of its international business and an excellent rate of centre openings.
  • A new company record in terms of centre numbers at 2,083, after registering 129 net openings in the first 9 months of 2015, twice the amount recorded in the whole of 2014.


Madrid, 11 November 2015.- Naturhouse has improved the main figures of its P&L account in the first nine months of 2015, due to the boost in the company’s international business, improvements in the domestic market and significant growth in net centre openings, leading to a new company record for centre numbers.

Naturhouse ended September with 2,083 centres in 29 countries, which is an increase of 129 stores compared to the end of 2014, twice the amount recorded for the whole of that year and 54% of the guidance for 2015-16. These figures once again highlight the growing market interest in our centres and the Group’s capacity for growth, especially considering the 37 openings registered in the third quarter, which is usually a weak period as it coincides with the summer season.

The group’s sales have increased to €74.1 million as a result of the improvement in the international business, which has registered growth of 2.8% led by France (+4.5%) and Poland (+23.2%), and the slowdown in the decline of the Italian and Spanish markets.

Meanwhile, EBITDA stands at €27 million, 0.5% higher than the amount recorded in the same period last year, due to the overall improvement in the business and the operational efficiency measures continuously implemented by the company. With this figure, Naturhouse registers an EBITDA margin of 36.4%, which is higher than for the same period in 2014 and above the upper threshold of the group’s target range (30%/35%) for fiscal years 2015 and 2016, while also being the highest in the industry.

Net income is up 1.3% to €18.7 million, due to a general improvement in the business alongside lower financial costs and the 35% increase of the contribution made by Ichem, in which Naturhouse has holdings.

France and Poland continue to be the Group’s growth drivers and the slowdown in the decline of markets in Spain and especially Italy stands out once again this quarter.

Naturhouse closed the third quarter of 2015 with a net cash position of €10.5 million after distributing dividends to the value of €14.05 million, highlighting once again the company’s high cash generation capacity and its ability to maintain an attractive shareholder remuneration policy (payout >80%).

Naturhouse was first listed on the stock exchange on 24 April 2015, an operation that captured investors from Europe’s leading financial centres. The group aims to distribute an 80% payout of consolidated net income and is forecasting net openings of 240 centres between 2015 and 2016. This goal is increasingly close to being fulfilled, as between 31 December 2014 and 30 September 2015 alone, 129 new Naturhouse centres were opened worldwide, of which 92% are franchises.
