The Segment closed 2014 with an EBITDA of 54.5 million euros, up by 6.1 million euros over the year, mainly due to better results reported by ARIA (+ 7.4 million euros), with special reference to the Terni plant, as a result of larger post-revamping operations and to the San Vittore plant in terms of volumes. The Aquaser Group recorded a lower gross operating margin by 1.6 million euros, chiefly due to Kyklos following the seizure of the plant at the end of July as a result of a fatal accident befalling two workers from a contracting firm.

The average number of staff on 31 December 2014 was 216, four less than last year. The increase refers to Aquaser (+ 2 units) and ARIA (+ 2 units).

Segment capital expenditures amounted to 13.3 million euros, substantially in line with the same period of the previous year.

Net debt in the Segment amounted to 179.6 million euros, 5.0 million euros down on the end of 2013. The change is mainly attributable to the Aquaser Group (- 4.2 million euros), due to higher revenues, plus an improvement from the companies ARIA and SAO, which reduced their debt by a further 0.9 million euros.
