Total sales in 2015 amounted to € 18.1 billion. This represents an increase of 22% (€ 3.2 billion) compared with 2014. This increase is primarily attributable to the completion of the acquisition of Nutreco in March 2015.

On an operational level, performance of SHV’s Groups varied. At € 788 million, income from operations improved by € 103 million compared with 2014. This increase was mainly the result of the acquisition of Nutreco and a good performance of SHV Energy. Dyas, ERIKS, Mammoet and Makro reported a lower operational result than the year before.

SHV’s net income significantly increased from € 523 million in 2014 to € 746 million in 2015. SHV Energy and Nutreco, which both performed very well in 2015, contributed considerably to these improved results.

At the end of 2015, SHV's group equity amounted to € 5.2 billion. Total liquidity amounted to € 1.3 billion, and the net debt position was € 537 million.
