TELESTE CORPORATION INTERIM REPORT 1 JAN TO 30 SEP 2013

 

IMPROVED THIRD QUARTER IN YEAR-ON-YEAR COMPARISON, FULL-YEAR OUTLOOK UNCHANGED

 

Third quarter of 2013

- Orders received totaled EUR 51.1 (40.5) million, an increase of 26.2%
- Net sales amounted to EUR 46.5 (45.6) million, an increase of 1.9%
- Operating profit amounted to EUR 3.2 (2.9) million, an increase of 10.9%
- Undiluted result per share stood at EUR 0.12 (EUR 0.11)
- Operating cash flow was EUR 3.0 (-0.2) million

 

Outlook for 2013

We expect net sales and operating profit for 2013 to reach the 2012 level.

 

Comments on Q3/2013 by CEO Jukka Rinnevaara:

"The positive market development of the third quarter was brought about by growth in the demand for both broadband access capacity and video surveillance, especially in the European market. We also managed to win significant orders on account of which our order backlog increased clearly over the comparative period.

Moreover, significant consolidations took place in our main clientele like those between Vodafone and Kabel Deutschland in Germany, and Liberty Global and Virgin Media in the U.K. The impact of such consolidations on network investments is difficult to assess.

Orders received by Video and Broadband Solutions were significantly higher than in the comparative period. Particularly strong markets included the Nordic countries, the Netherlands, Poland and France. Preparations continued for the future network technology solutions with our customers. Net sales and operating profit were at par with the comparative period.

The successful adjustment of the cost structure of Network Services business in Germany and the growth in demand for broadband connections allowed for a clear improvement in the year-on-year profitability."

Compared to the same period in the previous year, operating profit improved clearly totaling EUR 0.8 (0.4) million, which is 3.7% (2.2%) of the net sales.

Network Services January to September 2013

Orders received 65,036 68,936 -5.7% 91,931

This decline in operating profit over the comparative period was due to the low net sales and the relatively high cost structure in the first half of the year.

 

Personnel and Organization January to September 2013

In the period under review, the Group had an annual average of 1,324 people (1,326/2012, 1,290/2011), of whom 562 (568) were employed by Video and Broadband Solutions, and 762 (758) by Network Services. At the end of the reporting period, the Group employed 1,283 (1,308/2012, 1,311/2011) people, of whom Video and Broadband Solutions accounted for 564 and Network Services for 719. At the end of the reporting period, 72% (73%/2012, 72%/2011) worked abroad. Employees stationed outside Europe accounted for less than 5% of the Group's personnel.

Year-on-year wages and salaries decreased by 4.7% and amounted to EUR 41.7 (43.8/Jan to Sep/2012, 39.1/Jan to Sep/2011) million. This reduction in wages and salaries was contributed by performance-based bonuses, growth in the activation of R&D wages and salaries and payroll adjustments in the first quarter. In Finland, adjustments agreed in the cooperation procedures can be extended until March 2014, if required. 

M.Sc. (Econ) Juha Hyytiäinen (46) has been appointed new Chief Financial Officer and member of the Management Team of Teleste Corporation. Mr. Hyytiäinen's employment will begin on 18 November 2013. Teleste's current CFO, Erja Saarikoski, will leave the company in early 2014.

Investments in January to September 2013

Investments by the Group for the period under review totaled EUR 5.3 (2.5) million accounting for 3.8% (1.7%) of the net sales. EUR 3.5 million of these investments involved the acquisition of Asheridge. Investments in product development equaled EUR 0.9 (0.6) million. R&D investments involved the distributed access network solution and video surveillance software. Other investments were made in machinery and equipment for production and services as well as for modifications made in the production facilities in Finland. Investments of EUR 0.1 (0.8) million were made under financial lease arrangements.

Financing and Capital Structure in January to September 2013

Operating cash flow stood at EUR 7.3 (10.2) million. This decrease in cash flow from operations was primarily due to diminished EBITDA and taxes paid. At the end of the period under review, the amount of unused binding stand-by credits amounted to EUR 15.0 (16.0) million. The current binding stand-by credits of EUR 40.0 million run till August 2015.

The Group's equity ratio equaled 50.4% (47.5%) and net gearing was 17.4% (21.7%). Interest bearing debt on 30 September 2013 stood at EUR 26.3 (25.1) million.

Essential Operational Risks of Business Areas

Founded in 1954, Teleste is a technology and services company consisting of two business areas: Video and Broadband Solutions and Network Services. With Europe as the main market area, our clients include European cable operators and specified organizations in the public sector.

As to Video and Broadband Solutions, client-specific and integrated deliveries of solutions create favorable conditions for growth, even if the involved resource allocation and technical implementation pose a challenge involving, therefore, also reasonable risks. Our customers' network investments vary based on the relevant need for upgrading and their financial structure. Significant part of Teleste's competition comes from the USA so the exchange rate of euro up against the US dollar affects our competitiveness. The exchange rate development of the Chinese renminbi to euro affects our material costs.

The company hedges against short-term currency exposure by means of forward contracts. The tight financial market in Europe may slow down our customers' investment plans. Furthermore, a weakening in the consumer purchasing power in Europe could slow down the network investments by the cable operators. Availability of components is subject to natural phenomena, such as floods and earthquakes. Severe weather conditions have an impact on the business areas' ability to deliver their products and services. Correct technological choices and their timing are vital for our 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 our services by any one of them is reflected in the actual deliveries. To ensure quality of services and cost-efficiency along with efficient service process management, customer satisfaction and improvements in productivity require innovative solutions in terms of processes, products and logistics. Smooth operation of cable networks requires effective technical management and functional hardware solutions in accordance with contractual obligations. This, in turn, demands continuous and determined development of skill levels in Teleste's own personnel as well as those of our subcontractors. In addition, our ability to deliver and compete may be constrained by the adequacy of our sub-contractor network capacity. Tender calculation and management of larger projects with overall responsibility are complex and risky.

It is important for our business areas to take into account any market developments such as consolidations taking place among the clientele and competition. The threats to information systems must be minimized to ensure business continuity. The Board of Directors annually reviews any essential risks related to the company operation and their management. 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 any major risks of loss involving the business areas through insurance policies. Insurance will also cover credit loss risks related to sales receivables. In the period under review, no such legal proceedings or judicial procedures were pending that would have had any essential significance for the Group operation.

In the period under review, 113,331 treasury shares were conveyed. This conveyance was related to the acquisition of the share capital of the management holding company Teleste Management Oy, which was carried out through a share exchange.

 

Outlook for 2013

Network capacity will continue to increase driven by the new video services provided by the operators. However, comparisons made by the operators concerning the future access network technologies could delay the launch of investments. We estimate profitability of Video and Broadband Solutions to improve over the comparative period.

We estimate profitability of Network Services to remain below the comparative period.  

We expect net sales and operating profit for 2013 to reach the 2012 level.
