TELESTE CORPORATION INTERIM REPORT 1 JAN TO 31 MAR 2016

NET SALES AND ORDERS RECEIVED INCREASED, OPERATING PROFIT SAME AS LAST YEAR

 

First quarter of 2016
- Net sales amounted to EUR 60.6 (53.4) million, an increase of 13.4%
- Operating profit stood at EUR 2.6 (2.6) million, an increase of 0.2%
- Undiluted result per share equalled EUR 0.09 (0.12), a decrease of 25.6%
- Orders received totalled EUR 59.3 (56.9) million, an increase of 4.2%
- Cash flow from operations stood at EUR 1.6 (-1.2) million.

 

Outlook for 2016

We estimate that net sales and operating profit for 2016 will exceed the 2015 level.

 

Comments on the first quarter of 2016 by CEO Jukka Rinnevaara:

"The demand for Teleste's products and services continued at a good level in the first quarter of 2016. Net sales grew from the comparative period due to the successful product offering by Video and Broadband Solutions. Operating profit reached the level of the comparative period. Earnings per share were decreased by financial items, which were weakened by changes in exchange rates.

Orders received by Video and Broadband Solutions increased in video security and passenger information solutions, particularly in Switzerland, Poland, and the USA. The orders for access network products fell short of the comparative period. The net sales and operating profit of the business area increased on account of access network products. Deliveries grew most in Belgium, Switzerland, and the UK.

Net sales of Network Services remained at par with the comparative period, whereas the year-on-year operating profit fell. The result was weakened by expenses related to ramp-up of services for main client in a new geographical area in southern Germany and by sales-mix based to lower-margin services compared to reference period. As for the expansion of our business in the UK, profitability improved from the comparative period being, however, slightly at a loss."

Key Risks Faced by the 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 organisations in the public sector.

As to Video and Broadband Solutions, client-specific and integrated deliveries of solutions create favourable conditions for growth, even if the concerned resource allocation and technical implementation pose a challenge involving, therefore, also reasonable risks. In particular, deliveries of integrated security and information solutions for the passenger transport may be large in size, setting high demands for the project quotation calculation and management and, consequently, there are risks involved. Our customers' network investments vary based on the relevant need for upgrading and their financial structure.

A 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 US dollar and the Chinese renminbi to the euro affects our product costs. The company hedges against short-term currency exposure by means of forward exchange contracts. The modest development in economic growth and the financial challenges faced by the European public sector may slow down the implementation of our customers' investment plans. Furthermore, a weakening in the consumer purchasing power in Europe could slow down the network investments by the cable operators. Competition increased by the new service providers (OTT) may undermine the cable operators' ability to invest. Consequences of natural phenomena or accidents such as fire, may reduce the availability of components in the order-delivery chain of electronics industry or suspend our own manufacturing operations. Correct technological choices and their timing are vital to our success. A variety of technologies are used in products and solutions, and the intellectual property rights associated with the application of these technologies can be interpreted in different ways by different parties. Such divergences can lead to costly investigations or litigation. Regardless of careful planning and quality assurance, complex products may fail in the customer's network and lead to expensive repair obligations.

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 and profitability. 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, demands continuous and determined development of skills and competencies in Teleste's own personnel as well as those of our subcontractors. In addition, adequacy and utilisation rates of our own personnel and subcontractor network capacity affect the Company's delivery capacity and profitability. Tender calculation and management of larger projects with overall responsibility are complex and risky. Severe weather conditions may affect the supply conditions of our products and services.

Teleste’s strategy involves risks and uncertainties: new business opportunities may fail to be identified or they cannot be acted upon successfully. Our business areas will have to keep an eye on market movements, such as consolidations among the customers and competitors. Intensifying competition may decrease the prices of products and solutions faster than we manage to reduce the manufacturing and delivery costs of our products. Various information systems are critical to the development, manufacturing and supply of products to our customers. Maintenance of information systems and deployment of new systems involve risks that may affect our ability to deliver products and services. Information systems may also be subject to external threats, from which we aim to protect ourselves. Acquisition of skilled personnel and maintenance of their competence require encouragement, development and recruitment, which can fail.

The Board of Directors annually reviews any essential risks related to the company operation and the management thereof. Risk management constitutes an integral part of the strategic and operative practices of our business areas. Risks are reported to the Board on a regular basis.

The company has covered any major risks of loss related to 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.

Group Structure

Parent company Teleste has branch offices in Australia, the Netherlands, and Denmark with subsidiaries in 14 countries outside Finland.

Valid authorisations at the end of the review period:

Events after the End of the Review Period

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Teleste Corporation on 7 April 2016 confirmed the financial statements for 2015 and discharged the Board of Directors and the CEO from liability for the financial period. The AGM confirmed the dividend of EUR 0.23 per share as proposed by the Board. The dividend was paid to non-treasury shares on 18 April 2016.

The AGM decided that the Board of Directors consists of six members. Mr. Pertti Ervi, Ms. Jannica Fagerholm, Mr. Esa Harju and Mr. Kai Telanne were re-elected as members of Teleste Corporation's Board of Directors. New Members of the Board were elected Messrs. Timo Luukkainen and Timo Miettinen. Mr. Timo Miettinen was elected Chair of the Board in the organising meeting held immediately after the AGM.

The Annual General Meeting decided that the number of auditors of Teleste Corporation shall be one. KPMG Oy Ab, Authorised Public Accountants, was elected as the auditor of the Company and KPMG Oy Ab has appointed Mr. Petri Kettunen, APA, as the principally responsible auditor.

The Annual General Meeting decided to authorise the Board of Directors to decide on repurchasing the Company's own shares. Based on this authorisation, the Board of Directors may repurchase a maximum of 1,200,000 own shares of the Company otherwise than in proportion to the holdings of the shareholders by using the non-restricted equity through the regulated market on Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd at the market price prevailing at the time of acquisition. The authorisation to repurchase own shares is valid for 18 months from the resolution of the Annual General Meeting.

 

Outlook for 2016

The business objective of Video and Broadband Solutions is to maintain its strong market position in Europe and to strengthen this market position in selected new markets outside Europe. Network capacity will continue to increase driven by the new broadband and video services provided by the operators. Our new products in line with the DOCSIS 3.1 communication standard allow the cable operators to increase their network capacity competitively. Price erosion in the market continues. Changes in the value of the euro, particularly against the US dollar and the Chinese renminbi, affect Teleste’s competitiveness, on the one hand, and product manufacturing costs, on the other. The positive trend in the markets for video security and passenger information solutions will continue whereas the public sector decisions concerning the initiation of projects may be delayed by the current economic situation. The security solution for public areas introduced in Paris provides new opportunities for other major cities of the world. Train manufacturers and public transport operators benefit from Teleste's video security and passenger information solutions.

As to Network Services, our business objective is to further develop the operational efficiency and increase the share of those services that provide our customers with higher value. In the UK, our aim is to improve the profitability of the provided services. We estimate the demand for all-inclusive network services in our key target markets to continue at least at the previous year level.

We estimate that net sales and operating profit for 2016 will exceed the 2015 level.
