Comments by CEO Jukka Rinnevaara on Q4/2011

Net sales, operating profit and orders received increased in both business areas in the last quarter of 2011. In the fourth quarter we achieved the highest net sales in our history. Year-on-year improvement in the operating profit and relative profitability of Video and Broadband Solutions was particularly positive. This development is explained by the good level in deliveries of optical devices and the Luminato headend. In addition, the delivery for the Paris urban area video surveillance project succeeded as planned.  

Operating profit and relative profitability of Network Services improved clearly over the comparative period. The development program for the German services operations started to have a positive impact on the operating profit in Q4, yet the desired result for the entire year was not achieved. This development program will be continued determinedly with its aim set at clear improvement in profitability.

Good news for Q4 also includes the Group's operating cash flow, which was clearly positive and showed an improvement from the period of comparison.

 

Group Operations in Q4/2011

Net sales grew by 14.6% amounting to EUR 53.4 (46.6) million. Operating profit increased 39.2% to EUR 4.1 (3.0) million, or 7.7% (6.4%) of net sales. Undiluted result per share was EUR 0.17 (0.12). Operating cash flow stood at EUR 4.5 (0.9) million.

Orders received improved by 5.2% standing at EUR 53.5 (50.8) million. Orders in the comparative period included the Paris urban area video surveillance project of EUR 6.9 million. The Group's order backlog totaled EUR 21.2 (17.0) million.

- Net sales increased 9.4% to EUR 183.6 (167.8) million
- Operating profit grew by 26.2% equaling EUR 9.4 (7.4) million

Video and Broadband Solutions in Q4

Net sales grew by 21.0% amounting to EUR 27.7 (22.9) million. Net sales increased, especially in France and Russia. Operating profit increased 29.5% to EUR 3.1 (2.4) million, or 11.1% (10.3%) of net sales. Orders received improved by 5.9% standing at EUR 28.7 (27.1) million. Order backlog totaled EUR 20.3 (17.0) million.

Video and Broadband Solutions in January-December 2011

Year-on-year net sales grew by 9.4% amounting to EUR 89.7 (82.0) million. This increase in net sales was mainly due to higher delivery volumes in video surveillance and integration projects as well as optical product solutions. Operating profit increased 29.6% to EUR 8.2 (6.3) million, or 9.2% (7.7%) of net sales. This improvement in operating profit over the reference year was brought about by growth in net sales and successful project deliveries. Orders received increased by 7.8% and amounted to EUR 93.3 (86.5) million with the order backlog of EUR 20.3 (17.0) million.

The R&D efforts by the business area focused on the IP-based video processing system (the Luminato product range) and the video surveillance transmission system based on H.264 standard. R&D efforts were continued on amplifier technology (the Access product range), optical transmission system for HFC network (the HDO product range) as well as video surveillance management system (VMX).

Network Services in Q4

Net sales grew by 8.3% amounting to EUR 25.7 (23.8) million. Operating profit increased 77.4% to EUR 1.1 (0.6) million, or 4.2% (2.5%) of net sales. Development program of the services operations was continued in Germany.

Orders received increased by 4.4% standing at EUR 24.8 (23.8) million. Deliveries by the business area are mainly based on framework agreements. At the year-end, order backlog stood at EUR 0.9 million, and it involves the fiber project received in June of EUR 3.7 million.

Network Services in January-December 2011

Net sales grew by 9.4% amounting to EUR 93.9 (85.8) million. Operating profit equaled EUR 1.2 (1.1) million. Operating profit remained at par with the comparative period, which was partly due to increased personnel resources for fiber projects in Germany. Moreover, expenses were increased and operating profit was reduced by limited sub-contracting resources and severe weather in the beginning of the year. Orders received increased by 17.5% and totaled EUR 94.8 (80.7) million with the order backlog standing at EUR 0.9 (0.0) million. The German development program fell short of the set goal.

Investments and Financing in January-December 2011

Net investments by the Group amounted to EUR 5.2 (3.8) million, or 2.9% (2.2%) of net sales. The largest product development investments involved Luminato video processing system (EUR 1.9 million) and video surveillance management system (EUR 0.6 million). Investment for the Littoinen extension project totaled EUR 1.1 million. Investments in tools and measuring equipment amounted to EUR 1.3 million while those in information systems equaled EUR 0.5 million. Investments of EUR 0.3 (0.1) million were carried out under financial lease arrangements. In Finland, pieces of real estate were sold for EUR 0.7 million.

The Group's liquidity was good throughout the financial year. Operating cash flow stood at EUR 2.1 (5.4) million. Accounts receivable did not result in substantial credit losses. The need for working capital bound by growth was financed by credit facilities of EUR 6 million in interest-bearing loan. At the end of the period, the amount of unused binding stand-by credits amounted to EUR 7.5 (13.5) million. The current binding stand-by credit facilities of EUR 40.0 million are valid till November 2013. The Group's equity ratio equaled 41.6% (43.6%) while net gearing was 32.2% (25.5%). On 31 December 2011, the Group's interest-bearing debt stood at EUR 33.2 (28.0) million.

R&D expenditure for the financial period totaled EUR 11.6 (10.3) million making 6.3% (6.1%) of net sales. Teleste's product development expenses focused on Video and Broadband Solutions, the R&D expenditure of which amounted to 12.9% (12.6%) of net sales.

Personnel and Organization in January-December 2011

In 2011, the Group employed an average of 1,297 people (1,215/2010, 1,103/2009). At the year-end, the figure totaled 1,319 (1,231/2010, 1,260/2009) of which 72% (70%/2010, 68%/2009) were stationed overseas. At the end of the accounting period, rented workforce involved 26 people. This figure is not included in the number of personnel. Employees stationed outside Europe accounted for less than 5% of the Group's personnel.

Expenditure on employee benefits amounted to EUR 54.6 (50.8/2010, 44.6/2009) million. The year-on-year growth in employee benefits was brought about by re-establishment of full employment in the Finnish operations, and due to increase in staffing levels of Network Services in Germany and the UK.

Key Risks faced by the Business Areas

Founded in 1954, Teleste is a technology and service provider consisting of two business areas: Video and Broadband Solutions and Network Services. The main market is Europe and the main customers are the European cable operators as well as specified organizations in the public sector.

Concerning Video and Broadband Solutions, integrated deliveries of solutions create favorable conditions for growth, even if the involved resource allocation and technical implementation pose a challenge involving reasonable risks. Network investments carried out by the clients vary based on their need for upgrading and their capital structure. Much of Teleste's competition comes from the USA so the exchange rate of euro up against the US dollar affects our competitiveness. Also the exchange rate development of the Chinese renminbi to euro affects our material costs. The company hedges against short-term currency risk by means of forward contracts. The tight financial market in Europe may slow down the customers' investment plans. Natural phenomena, such as floods and earthquakes, may reduce the availability of components. The right technology choices and their timing are crucial to success.

Net sales of Network Services comes, for the most part, from a small number of large European customers, so a significant change in the demand for services by any one of them is reflected in the actual deliveries. Improvements in customer satisfaction and productivity require efficient control of service process management as well as innovative solutions in processes, products and logistics to ensure the quality of services and cost effectiveness. Smooth operation of cable networks necessitates efficient technical management of the networks and functional solutions for devices in accordance with contractual obligations. This, in turn, requires continuous and determined development of skill levels in Teleste's own personnel as well as those of our subcontractors. Besides, availability of subcontractor network capacity may restrict our ability to deliver.

The business areas will have to keep an eye on market movements, such as consolidations among the customers and competitors. Severe weather conditions have an impact on the business areas' ability to deliver products and services.

The Board of Directors annually reviews any essential risks related to the company operation and the management thereof. Risk management is an integral part of the strategic and operational activities of the business areas. Risks and their probability are reported to the Board in conjunction with regular monthly reports.

The Company has covered the most significant operational hazard risks of the Business areas by insurance. Insurance does not cover credit loss risks. In the period under review, no such risks materialized, nor was there any pending litigation or legal proceedings, which would have had any relevance to the Group's operations.

Group Structure

Teleste Kaurakatu Oy was sold in October 2011. Cableway Nord GmbH was merged with Cableway Mitte GmbH, whose name was changed to Cableway Nord GmbH. Cableway Nord Mitte GmbH&KG and Cableway North West GmbH&KG were merged into Teleste Services GmbH.

The parent company has branch offices in Australia, the Netherlands, China and Denmark, with subsidiaries in 12 countries outside Finland.

Due to financial arrangements, Teleste Management Oy and Teleste Management II Oy, owned by the members of the Management Group, have been merged with the Teleste Corporation figures.

Decisions by the Annual General Meeting 

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Teleste Corporation held on 8 April 2011 confirmed the financial statements for 2010 and discharged the Board of Directors and the CEO from liability for the financial period. The AGM confirmed the dividend of EUR 0.12 per share as proposed by the Board. The dividend was paid out on 20 April 2011.

Marjo Miettinen, Pertti Ervi, Tero Laaksonen, Pertti Raatikainen, Kai Telanne and Peter Walldén were elected members of the Board by the Annual General Meeting. Marjo Miettinen was elected chairperson in the organizing meeting of the Board held immediately after the AGM.

Authorized Public Accountants KPMG Oy Ab continue as the auditor until the next AGM. Esa Kailiala, accountant authorized by the Central Chamber of Commerce of Finland, was chosen auditor-in-charge.

The AGM authorized the Board to acquire the maximum of 1,400,000 of the Company's own shares and to convey the maximum of 1,779,985 Company's own shares. The AGM also authorized the Company Board to issue 5,000,000 new shares. Pursuant to the special rights provided by the Company, the maximum number of significant shares is 2,500,000; these special rights are included in the authorization to issue 5,000,000 new shares.

Shares and Changes in Share Capital

On 31 December 2011, EM Group Oy was the largest single shareholder with the holding of 21.08%.

In the period under review, the lowest Company share price was EUR 2.50 (3.64) while the highest was EUR 4.82 (5.33). Closing price on 31 December 2011 stood at EUR 3.00 (4.41). According to Euroclear Finland Ltd, the number of shareholders at the end of the period under review was 5,054 (5,184). Foreign ownership accounted for 7.76% (8.38%). From 1 January to 31 December 2011, trading with Teleste share at NASDAQ OMX Helsinki amounted to EUR 6.2 (14.2) million. In the period under review, 1.7 (3.2) million Teleste shares were traded on the stock exchange.

In December 2011, the Board decided on a directed share issue of 542,000 shares to Teleste Management II Oy, founded by the Management Group members of Teleste Corporation. This directed share issue was authorized by the AGM on 8 April 2011.

On 31 December 2011, the Group held a total of 1,302,985 own shares (760,985), of which the parent company Teleste Corporation had none (0) while other Group companies or controlled companies had 1,302,985 shares. At the end of the period, the Group's holding of the total amount of shares amounted to 6.96% (4.18%). Based on the rights of options, the Company's holding of shares may increase by 840,000 shares equaling to 4.29% of all shares and votes.

On 31 December 2011, Teleste's registered share capital stood at EUR 6,966,932.80 divided in 18,728,590 shares.

Teleste Corporation complies with the Corporate Governance Code, effective as of 1 October 2010 and issued by the Securities Market Association for the Finnish listed companies. Since 1 March 2000, Teleste complies with the insider guidelines issued by the NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Oy in their valid form at any given time.

Outlook for 2012

In our estimation, deliveries of equipment and solutions in 2012 for the operator clientele by Video and Broadband Solutions will reach at least the 2011 level. European telecom operators have launched TV distribution infrastructure investments, and in our view, Teleste's optical products and IP network solutions are competitive in this new emerging market.

In our estimate, demand on the annual level for services by Network Services continues relatively stable. We believe that in the main market area of Germany the operating profit will improve from the 2011 level due to more efficient resource management.

Net sales and operating profit will grow over the 2011 level.

The Board’s proposal for the distribution of dividends

Parent company Teleste Corporation's distributable equity on the balance sheet date is EUR 36,775,101.54.

The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting to be held on 3 April 2012 that a dividend be paid for 2011 of EUR 0.14 (EUR 0.12) per share for the outstanding shares.
