Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Shareholders,
The year 2013 was a year of changes for the Company. Despite all changes, the year 2013 was a successful year for us under the new organisational structure.
The year 2013 was connected primarily with changes to the organisational structure. Effective from 1 January 2013, AL INVEST Břidličná, a.s. began to sell most of its production through METALIMEX a. s. The process of transferring the sales activities was notan easy one. We changed all processes in such a manner that our customers did not have any problems connected with this change. Effective from 1 June 2013, we changed also the internal structureof the Company and re-implemented the divisional structure. Many other changes were realised during the year, primarily in human resources management, such as a new motivational and emunerationscheme for all employees. The Company coped well with all these changes which was confirmed by the successfully completed ISO 9001 audit.
Revenue from goods amounted to CZK 4.06 billion and the volume of production was 54 781 tonnes. The profit before tax generated from these sales was MCZK 209.3. Investments amounted to MCZK 118.8 and the acquisition of a new varnishing machine CERUTTI was the investment of the year. AL INVEST Břidličná, a.s. had 929 employees in 2013 and the average wage was CZK 24 898.
In 2014, we expect economic stability both in terms of revenues, net result and the number of employees. Our main objective is to make new investments primarily in two divisions; the Packaging division which is going to acquire new printing machines, and the Foils division which should finish the investment into a new homogenizing annealing furnace and to initiate the investment into new foil furnaces.
I would like to thank our shareholders and business partners for their confidence in AL INVEST Břidličná, a.s., and my colleagues and employees of the Company for the effort and results we achieved in 2013.
Ing. Petr Otava, CSc.
Chairman of the Board of Directors
