Profit guidance

Group’s operating result is expected to grow compared to financial year 2014.

CEO Repe Harmanen:

Despite the stagnant market situation, we were quite successful in our operations in 2014. Our result can be considered moderate in terms of the key figures and set objectives. We successfully met our key objective of maintaining a steady long-term development of the company and its operations. Our strategic decisions proved to be right, and in general they were implemented as planned.

The revenue, operating result and growth figures for 2014 are positive. The key financial indicators and the key figures related to long-term continuity, such as equity ratio and debt-equity ratio, improved in accordance with our objectives. The most significant individual objective that will still require additional measures in the future is reaching the EBIT margin target set for the strategy period. The objective can be met by implementing our strategic programs in accordance with the planned progress model and by accelerating the pace.

THE MARKET CHALLENGES US DAILY

The market situation remained stagnant in 2014, and creating growth continues to be more challenging than it was a few years ago. We see that consumer demand in the domestic market has an essential impact on the growth rate in our client segments and thereby on the development of new products and services. The drastic structural changes in the retail sector are reflected in all our operations.

A clear trend among our clients is to focus on projects that ensure the competitiveness of the basic systems. The other aims of the projects include improvements in the growth prospects with respect to analytics and customer insight to ensure effectiveness and ability to compete for customers.

The outlook for e-commerce solutions is clearly positive. The most progressive organizations see e-commerce as a fully integrated part of their supply chain, not as a separate form of business. For us, multichannel solutions are part of everyday operations in retail, wholesale and logistics. The differences between the various stages of the supply chain and between the operators have narrowed, and sometimes it is impossible to make a difference between a logistics operator and a retailer. The phenomena, behaviors and procedures that are typical in consumer retail have expanded to B2B business and even to the manufacturing industry. In the end, all organizations do business in one form or another.

The rapid changes and new trends in the market keep us alert. In the fast flow of changes, we have to able to detect the trends that will have the biggest impact on our clients – and on us.

OUR CLIENTS AND PARTNERS DEVELOP US

We have performed well with both our long-standing and our new clients in view of long-term support and continuity services that ensure their development paths. Our views and ideas concerning cooperation that expands beyond life cycles have been received well, and our new clients have found this kind of cooperation important. We will also continue long-term work with our old clients, building bridges to new solutions. Active interaction with our clients continues, and we have succeeded in establishing an open dialog with our clients concerning their development trends and needs. Cooperation like this is a proactive way of finding the right future direction for both the parties.

We have also developed our operations with our partner network. We are not able to offer final solutions by working alone; together we are more. By joining our forces with our partners, we will develop together for the benefit of our clients and customers.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our clients and partners for their support during the past year.

STRATEGIC SOLUTIONS IN FOCUS

In 2014, we launched several projects for building paths from existing solutions to new environments for our clients in accordance with our Bridge Model. The model has been received well and the direction is right. This concept, which was launched in 2011, is an essential part of ensuring continuity in our operations.

In implementing our strategy, we have also succeeded in expanding the solutions offered to our clients in other respects and thereby offering improved solution packages to all our clients.

In 2015, the aim in our development projects will be to improve the flexibility and speed of our operating model. As to growth, we will continue our operations in the HoReCa segment in line with our strategy, and we will strengthen our growth in the logistics sector and in our internationalization activities. We will continue our good work and thereby promote further growth for our company.

OUR STAFF DEVELOPS WITH US

The staff plays an important role in our operations. In the past year, we succeeded in recruiting enthusiastic, development-oriented and competent staff. We have been able to ensure that our experts and other professionals meet the requirements brought by growth. Even if 2014 was a challenging year in certain sectors, I am extremely satisfied with the professional skills of our staff members and their commitment to their work. During a period of rapid and strong growth, things are easy and simple. It is in hard times that abilities are put to the real test. I would like to take this opportunity to extend my sincere thanks to our staff members for their excellent contribution during the past year. We will continue developing the diversity and wellbeing of our staff members and offer them lifelong career paths that adapt to their changing life situations. The possibility to develop one’s competencies and focus on demanding client work as a professional is what we want to offer to all our staff members in the future as well.

FUTURE OUTLOOK

Especially during the last quarter of 2014, we succeeded well in certain client projects, and thanks to them, both our revenue and operating profit for the last quarter improved from the previous year. We expect 2015 to be similar to the past year in many respects. There are signs of the market picking up: new projects are being prepared, and unlike earlier projects are launched on time without delays. We will monitor this trend and report on our observations in our interim reports.

I look into the future with confidence and optimism.

BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT AND BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

Solteq is a leading retail and service industry software service company. We offer long-term partnership and the markets’ widest range of retail and service industry software services, from the optimisation of the entire supply chain to the management of consumer-customer information. Our technology-independent solutions help our customers to guide their business operations as efficiently and profitably as possible.

Solteq Plc’s reported segments are Gro­cery and special retail, HoReCa; Wholesale, Logistics and Services and Enterprise Asset & Service Business Management.

The aim of the segmentation is to respond to customer demand as a field total supplier and therefore to improve the availability of services and ease for our customers.

Gro­cery and special retail, HoReCa

Solteq’s Grocery and Special Retail Segment provides its clients with total solutions that they can utilise to improve efficiency in terms of logistics, store operations, customer service, point of sale operations, as well as loyal customer management.

The grocery and special retail solutions help optimise the management of the product selection, space, deliveries, logistics and customer satisfaction while increasing sales and improving the result. The solutions speed up the basic operations, improve delivery reliability, reduce storage value, increase stock turnover and enhance predict­ability. The store always has the right products in the right place, at the right time, and at the right price.

During the review period the revenue of the Grocery and Special Retail segment totalled 20,5 million euros (18,0 million euros) and the operating result was 1,2 million euros (1,1 million euros).

Despite the weak market development in our client sectors, the revenue of the segment grew significantly. During the financial period, we implemented and launched significant service expansion for our existing clients, but the development of our new client sales was also positive. The operating result of the segment improved, but we still need to utilize our improvement potential in order to reach our target level.

Wholesale, Logistics and Services

Solteq’s Wholesale, Logistics and Services Segment provides its clients with ERP and financial management systems, as well as optimisation, integration and reporting solutions that support these systems.

Solteq’s solutions help clients manage their operations and enhance purchases, sales, stock management and reporting. The systems can be utilised to improve delivery reliability, reduce storage value, increase stock turnover and enhance predictability. Materials flow management ensures that the right goods reach the right customers at the right time, packed in an optimal manner.

Solteq’s wholesale, logistics and services systems improve the effectiveness of operations and enable more flexible and versatile customer service. At the same time, automated data management enhances the company’s internal operations. Solteq’s solutions are used daily by a large number of clients representing various industries and sectors, such as wholesale, retail and public administration.

During the review period the revenue of the Wholesale, Logistics and Services segment totalled 15,4 million euros (15,0 million euros) and the operating result was 0,6 million euros (0,3 million euros).

The business of the segment is based on systems that are in different phases of their life cycles and related services. During the financial period, we implemented and launched in-segment projects in which existing clients adopted technologically new systems. Therefore, the increase in the revenue remained on the general market growth level. The improved operating result was mainly due to the development of the quality of the system projects and enhanced resourcing. The aim is to improve the operating result level further by developing the production model of the software services.

Enterprise Asset & Service Business Management

Solteq’s Enterprise Asset & Service Business Management Segment provides its clients with ERP and master data management solutions.

The enterprise resource planning solutions developed for the optimisation of service processes help clients manage their operations in many ways, for instance enhance production plant reliability, task and resources manage­ment, field work, sales and customer service, partner network management and materials management. The solutions are utilised by a large number of clients representing various industries and sectors, such as energy produc­tion, maintenance services, life cycle services, engineering and technical services of cities and municipalities, property management services, and home and care services.

The Enterprise Asset & Service Business Management Segment also provides client companies with services and products related to business critical data (master data) in the form of master data improvement projects, data maintenance services outsourced to master data service centers, software technologies for master data management, and consultation services. The aim of these services is to ensure that the data in the systems that support the clients’ enterprise resource planning and decision making processes are of high quality, compatible and up-to-date. Solteq’s master data manage­ment solutions are used by clients across industries and sectors.

During the review period the revenue of the Enterprise Asset & Service Business Manage­ment segment totalled 5,0 million euros (5,2 million euros) and the operating result was 0,7 million euros (0,7 million euros).

Unlike in other segments, the main business of the segment is based on the development, supply and marketing of the segment’s own software products. During the review period, we implemented in-segment client projects in which the clients adopted new product generations. The revenue development of the segment remained on the previous year’s level, but the growth of new product generations within the segment was significant. The operating result of the segment remained on a good level. We will improve the growth and profitability of our operations by developing products that meet the needs of the client segments better and by looking for new market areas and channels. The incorporation of the business of the segment at the turn of the year will allow the development of a product area specific, specialised strategy during 2015.

During the review period product develop­ment costs were not amortized (none in the reference year, either).

The Annual General Meeting accepted that the Board is authorized in accordance with the Finnish Companies Act 13 chapter 6§ 2 paragraph to decide on a maximum dividend of 0,05 euros per share or other distribution of funds from the distributable equity fund as well as to decide upon the timing of the distribution and other details was accepted. The authorization is valid until the beginning of the next Annual General Meeting.

The Annual General Meeting authorized the Board of Directors to decide on the purchase of the Company’s own shares to improve the capital structure, to be used as a part of remuneration of personnel, to finance and execute business acquisitions and other business arrangements or to be further transferred or cancelled. The proposal includes authorization to take company’s own shares as a pledge.

KPMG Oy Ab, Authorized Public Account­ants, was re-elected as Solteq’s auditors. Lotta Nurminen, APA, acted as the chief auditor.

EVENTS AFTER THE REVIEW PERIOD

On December 11, Company’s Board of Directors decided to execute an arrangement in which the business operations of Enterprise Asset & Service Business Management –seg­ment is transferred to a new subsidiary which is completely owned by the company. The business transfer arrangement was executed on 1.1.2015.

The purpose of the arrangement is to enhance group’s operations and controllability by dividing different business models to sepa­rate companies. New subsidiary concentrates strongly on research and development work and marketing of its own product branch while the parent company concentrates on provid­ing software solutions to retail and logistics industries. The arrangement does not have impact on the reporting structure of the group.

RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES

The key uncertainties and risks in short term are related to the timing and pricing of business deals that are the basis for revenue, changes in the level of costs and the com­pany’s ability to manage extensive contract agreements and deliveries.

The key business risks and uncertainties of the company are monitored constantly as a part of the board of directors’ and manage­ment team’s duties. The company has not organized a separate internal audit organiza­tion or committee.

PROPOSAL OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS ON THE DISPOSAL OF PROFIT FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR

At the end of the financial period 2014, the distributable equity of the Group’s parent company is 10.893.972,08 euros.

The Solteq Plc Board proposes to the Annual General Meeting that a dividend of EUR 0.03 per share will be paid for each share. In view of the current number of the shares, this would mean the distribution of approx. 450 thousand euros to the shareholders.

In addition to this is proposed that the Board be authorised, on the basis of Chapter 13, Section 6, Sub-section 2 of the Finnish Companies Act, to decide on the distribution of a dividend amounting to a maximum of 0,05 EUR per share or of other assets from the distributable equity reserve, as well as decide on the timing and other details concerning the possible distribution. In view of the current number of the shares, this would mean the distribution of approx. 750 thousand euros to the shareholders (In the Annual General Meeting 2014 the Board got an authorisa­tion for a dividend, or other assets from the distributable equity reserve amounting to a maximum of EUR 0.05. The Board decided, based on this authorisation, on 25.11.2014 on a dividend payment of EUR 0.03).

No essential changes have taken place in the company’s financial situation after the end of the financial period. The liquidity of the company is good, and in the Board’s estima­tion the proposed distribution of dividend or other assets will not endanger the company’s financial standing.
