February 6, 2014

Helsinki, 2014-02-07 08:00 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DIGIA PLC FINANCIAL STATEMENTS RELEASE, 7 FEBRUARY 2014 AT 09:00 DIGIA’S FOURTH QUARTER 2013: GROWTH IN CONSOLIDATED NET SALES AND IMPROVEMENT IN OPERATING PROFIT; LOSS DUE TO EXTRAORDINARY ITEMS SUMMARY January-December - Consolidated net sales: EUR 99.7 (100.4) million, down 0.7 per cent - Operating profit before extraordinary items: EUR 4.5 (8.2) million - Extraordinary items comprise a EUR 7.0 million writedown and EUR 0.4 million in restructuring costs for reorganisation purposes (1-12/2012: restructuring costs EUR 0.7 million). Of the writedown, EUR 0.4 million applies to itemised intangible assets and EUR 6.6 million to goodwill - Operating profit after extraordinary items: EUR -2.8 (6.9) million - Profitability (EBIT%): 4.6 (8.2) per cent before extraordinary items and -2.8 (6.9) per cent after extraordinary items - Product business accounted for 41.1 (36.4) per cent - Earnings per share: EUR 0.15 (0.26) before extraordinary items and -0.20 (0.19) after extraordinary items October-December - Consolidated net sales: EUR 26.8 (25.5) million, up 5.2 per cent - Operating profit before extraordinary items: EUR 2.1 (1.0) million - Extraordinary items comprise a EUR 7.0 million writedown and EUR 0.4 million in restructuring costs for reorganisation purposes (1-12/2012: restructuring costs EUR 0.7 million). Of the writedown, EUR 0.4 million applies to itemised intangible assets and EUR 6.6 million to goodwill - Operating profit after extraordinary items: EUR -5.3 (0.2) million - Profitability (EBIT%): 7.8 (3.8) per cent before extraordinary items and -19.7 (1.0) per cent after extraordinary items - Product business accounted for 37.1 (35.8) per cent - Earnings per share: EUR 0.09 (0.03) before extraordinary items and -0.26 (-0.01) after extraordinary items During the reporting period, the group’s consolidated net sales fell slightly from the previous year’s comparison figure. This was due to the fact that in 2012 the company had EUR 4.5 million in accrued income from the mobile contract engineering business, which no longer existed in 2013 as the business unit was closed down at the end of 2012. The comparison figures for 2012 also include an exceptional net sales item of EUR 4.2 million related to a Qt business acquisition licensing deal made in the third quarter of 2012. Excluding the effect of the aforementioned factors, the company’s like-for-like consolidated net sales increased by 6.7 per cent during the period. Net sales grew also during the fourth quarter. Operating profit for the review period as well as for the fourth quarter was negative, after the company’s board decided in its meeting on 6 February 2014 to make a writedown of EUR 7.0 million applicable to the fourth quarter. The writedown derives from a change in the company’s estimate of the long-term profit forecast for its domestic business operations, on which evaluations must be based according to standards. Investments in international operations also had a negative impact on the result for the review period, pushing down the review period’s operating profit before extraordinary items compared to 2012. In the fourth quarter operating profit clearly improved compared to the same period in the previous year. The Qt business progressed well and its like-for-like net sales grew by 25.0 per cent for the review period and 23.7 per cent for the fourth quarter compared to the previous year. Demand and bid volumes were both good. No major individual deals were made during the fourth quarter, however. The profitability of the operations was low during the review period due to significant growth-oriented investments. The company gave up its loss-making Russian operations during the last quarter of 2013. In future, the Russian unit will focus on Qt licence sales. For 2014, the company predicts organic growth of its net sales exceeding the general market growth rate. The company expects its overall profitability to rise from last year’s levels, although further investments in growing the Qt business will continue holding back the whole company’s profitability. Proposal for dividend distribution At the end of 2013, the distributable shareholders’ equity of Digia Plc was EUR 32,893,730.71, of which EUR 1,850,830.89 was the net loss for the year. At the Annual General Meeting, the Board of Directors will propose that a repayment of capital totalling EUR 0.10 per share be paid according to the confirmed statement of financial position for the fiscal year ending 31 December 2013. Shareholders listed on the shareholder register maintained by Euroclear Finland Oy on the reconciliation date, 14 March 2014, will be eligible for the capital repayment. The repayment date is 21 March 2014.

Digia has invested significantly in growing its integration business. The delivery capacity of this business area was reinforced during the review period with personnel increase through external recruitment and internal transfers, training and with productisation efforts. Growth was higher than expected thanks to these efforts and good customer demand. The growth trend continued strong through the last quarter. Demand for ERP systems was good in the review period. There were clear differences in demand from different sectors, customers continued displaying caution in their purchasing behaviour, and sales cycles remained long. Order and bid volumes were at a healthy level. Net sales grew compared to the previous year, meeting the targets set for the review period. Profitability remained at the previous year’s level. During the review period, the company reassessed the position of Russia in its growth strategy with regard to future growth potential, business risks and overall investment management. As a result, the company gave up its loss-making Russian operations during the last quarter, focusing in the future on Qt licence sales in Russia. The Qt business progressed well and its like-for-like net sales grew by 25.0 per cent for the review period and 23.7 per cent for the fourth quarter compared to the previous year. Demand and bid volumes were both good. No major individual deals were made during the fourth quarter, however. The profitability of the operations was low during the review period; this was due to significant, target-oriented investments aimed at developing the business. The focus of Qt operations was primarily on licence sales, which meant that the product business accounted for more than the target level of 75% of net sales. During the period, the company continued fulfilling previously reported plans related to Qt product development and areas of focus. In December the company launched a new version of the Qt development environment intended for mobile developers, including Android and iOS support. New mobile platforms will be incorporated in coming versions. NET SALES Digia’s consolidated net sales for the reporting period totalled EUR 99.7 (100.4) million, down 0.7 per cent from the same period in 2012. The operating profit for the period fell slightly from the comparison figures.This was due to the fact that in 2012 the company had EUR 4.5 million in accrued income from the mobile contract engineering business, which no longer existed in 2013 as the business unit was closed down at the end of 2012.The comparison figures for 2012 also include an exceptional net sales item of EUR 4.2 million related to a Qt business acquisition licensing deal made in the third quarter of 2012.Excluding the effect of this licensing deal, the accrued income of the Qt business grew both in the review period (25.0 per cent) and in Q4 (23.7 per cent).Thanks to this growth, the whole company’s net sales grew like-for-like, both in the review period (6.7 per cent) and in Q4 (7.2 per cent).Besides the Qt business, net sales were positively affected by other operations, especially an individual third-party software maintenance deal with low margins worth EUR 2.4 million, made in Q2. During the reporting period, the product business accounted for EUR 41.0 (1-12/2012: 36.5) million or 41.1 (36.4) per cent of consolidated net sales. International operations accounted for EUR 21.1 (1-12/2012: 20.6) million or 21.2 (20.5) per cent of consolidated net sales. The Qt business accounted for EUR 19.9 (1-12/2012: 18.7) million of consolidated net sales. Digia’s consolidated net sales for the fourth quarter were EUR 26.8 (10-12/2012: 25.5) million, up 5.2 per cent on the same period in 2012. During the fourth quarter, the product business accounted for EUR 9.9 (10-12/2012: 9.1) million of consolidated net sales, or 37.1 (35.8) per cent. In the same period, the international business accounted for EUR 5.3 (10-12/2012: 5.2) million of consolidated net sales, or 19.9 (20.6) per cent. The Qt business accounted for EUR 5.0 (10-12/2012: 4.1) million of consolidated net sales in the fourth quarter.

Consolidated earnings before tax for the fourth quarter were EUR -5.5 (-0.0) million, and net profit EUR -5.4 (-0.1) million. Consolidated earnings per share for the review period totalled EUR 0.15 (0.26) before extraordinary items and -0.20 (0.19) after extraordinary items. Consolidated earnings per share for the fourth quarter totalled EUR 0.09 (0.03) before extraordinary items and -0.26 (-0.01) after extraordinary items. The Group’s net financial expenses for the review period were EUR 0.8 (1.3) million and for the fourth quarter EUR 0.2 (0.3) million. FINANCIAL POSITION AND EXPENDITURE At the end of the reporting period, Digia Group’s consolidated balance sheet total stood at EUR 83.3 million (12/2012: EUR 92.4 million), and the equity ratio was 49.9 (12/2012: 52.6) per cent. Net gearing was 28.9 (12/2012: 27.5) per cent. Period-end cash and cash equivalents totalled EUR 6.5 (12/2012: 8.3) million. Interest-bearing liabilities amounted to EUR 16.9 (12/2012: 19.8) million at the period end. These consisted of EUR 15.5 million in loans from financial institutions and EUR 1.4 million in financial leasing liabilities. The Group’s cash flow from business operations for the period was positive by EUR 4.9 (19.9) million. In 2012, cash flow from operations included EUR 12.2 million in cash flow related to the Qt acquisition. Cash flow from investments for the review period was negative by EUR 1.6 (16.2) million. In 2012, cash flow from investments included EUR 14.5 million in cash flow related to the Qt acquisition. Cash flow from finance for the review period was negative by EUR 5.1 (3.6) million. The cash flow from finance was negatively affected by repayment of company loans. The Group’s investments in fixed assets during the review period totalled EUR 1.6 (0.8) million. Return on investment (ROI) for the period was -4.4 (11.3) per cent, and return on equity (ROE) was -10.4 (9.8) per cent. On 19 December 2013, Digia renewed the company’s three-year loan plan, replacing the company’s old loans, 15 MEUR. The new loan plan totals 25 MEUR, of which the company drew out 15 MEUR. Nordea Bank Finland Plc and Pohjola Bank Plc continued as the company’s financing institutions. The Group carries out quarterly impairment testing on goodwill and intangible assets with an indefinite useful life.The tables below show the distribution of goodwill and values subject to testing at the end of the reporting period: EUR 1,000 Specified Amortisations Goodwi Other Total value intangible during the ll items subject to assets reporting period testing -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Digia, 1,313 656 37,987 6,227 45,528 domestic operations -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- EUR 1,000 Specified Amortisations during Goodwi Other Total value intangible the reporting period ll items subject to assets testing -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Digia, Qt 6,843 862 6,562 1,367 14,773 business -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- EUR Specified Amortisations during Goodwi Other Total value 1,000 intangible the reporting period ll items subject to assets testing -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Group 8,157 1,519 44,550 7,594 60,300 total -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The group has made a EUR 0.4 million writedown related to itemised intangible assets allocated to the fourth quarter. After this, the company found it necessary to make a EUR 6.6 million writedown related to the goodwill of its domestic operations. The writedown derives from a change in the company’s estimate of the long-term profit forecast for its domestic business operations, on which evaluations must be based according to standards. Present values for domestic operations were calculated for the five-year forecast period based on the following assumptions: consolidated net sales and operating profit for 2014 according to budget; after this, annual growth in net sales of 0.8 per cent and in operating profit of 3.6 per cent, and a pre-tax discount rate of 8.9 per cent. Present values for the Qt business were calculated for the five-year forecast period based on the following assumptions: consolidated net sales and operating profit for 2014 according to budget; after this, annual growth in net sales of 6.5 per cent and in operating profit of 5.3 per cent, and a pre-tax discount rate of 8.9 per cent. Post-forecast-period cash flows for both the tested units were extrapolated using the same assumptions as for the forecast period. According to a completed sensitivity analysis, Qt business requires either net sales to remain at the current level with profitability of 3.9 per cent, or a 5.0 per cent growth in net sales with profitability of 1.2 per cent. PERSONNEL, MANAGEMENT AND ADMINISTRATION At the end of the period, the total number of Group personnel was 938, representing a decrease of 44 employees or 4.5 per cent since the end of 2012 (982). During the reporting period the number of employees averaged 939, a decrease of 86 employees or 8.4 per cent from the 2012 average (1,025). Employees by function at the end of the period: Business units 95% ---------------------------------- Administration and management 5% ---------------------------------- As of the end of the period, 170 (12/2012: 195) employees were working abroad. The Digia Plc Annual General Meeting of 12 March 2013 re-elected PÄivi Hokkanen, Robert Ingman, Kari Karvinen, Pertti KyttÄlÄ, Seppo Ruotsalainen, Leena Saarinen and Tommi Uhari as members of the Board.At the organisation meeting of the Board, Pertti KyttÄlÄ was elected Chairman of the Board and Robert Ingman, Vice Chairman. Juha Varelius has been Digia Plc’s President and CEO since 1 January 2008. Ernst & Young Oy, authorised public accountants, are the Group’s auditors, with Authorised Public Accountant Heikki Ilkka as the principal auditor. RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES Short-term uncertainties are related to any major changes occurring in the company’s core business areas. The company made a significant investment into Qt technology and related business opportunities with the Qt business acquisition completed in 2012. If the Qt business fails to develop according to the company’s expectations, the investments and related costs may have a significant impact on the company’s short-term profitability. Possible changes in the competitive scenario or market for that business may also impact the company’s future net sales and profitability. In addition, the general economic recession may affect customers’ investment decisions and liquidity, and thereby the company’s sales and profits. Signs of the impact of the global economy on customers’ investment decisions and the schedules of planned projects were seen steadily throughout the period under review. Furthermore, the growth in customer project sizes increases the risks related to projects and their profitability. Risks and their management are described on the company’s website at www.digia.com. FUTURE PROSPECTS With the structural reorganisation that took effect at the beginning of 2014, Digia hopes to enhance the focus of its business units and investments in order to improve efficiency. Within the Qt business, the emphasis is clearly on creating the foundations for growth. At the same time, the company works to maintain the profitability of the business. In domestic operations, the company will look to bring profitability to a good level and to achieve organic growth that at least matches the general market rates. Besides organic growth, the company will actively pursue opportunities to make carefully considered business acquisitions that support its strategy. The company expects the Finnish IT market to remain at roughly the previous year’s level in 2014. Efforts will continue to develop the company’s customer understanding and sales and service portfolio, to ensure that it can offer increasingly competitive services and solutions for boosting its customers’ business efficiency. The company expects demand for its ERP systems to remain at a good level, although increased caution on the customer side and lengthening sales cycles may have an effect on future order intake and requests for tenders. Demand for integration services is also expected to stay at a good level. The company predicts that the net sales for this business unit will continue to grow, although at a slightly slower rate than in 2013 due to customers’ cost-saving pressures. The company believes that the cost pressures felt by customers and the resulting caution will have an impact mostly on demand for solutions and services, where decision-making may be delayed, especially in larger projects. The Qt order book is healthy, considering the time of year and general market situation, and the company expects demand to continue growing even in the large enterprises customer segment. Contract lead times are very long in this segment, however – typically 6–18 months – which can cause significant fluctuations between quarters in terms of net sales and, particularly, profitability. In future the Chinese and Russian units will form part of the Qt segment and will focus on Qt licence sales. The company predicts a continued strong growth of income generated by the Qt business in 2014. Significant investments will continue to be made in developing the Qt business and Qt technology, while the company will further reinforce its sales network, especially in Asia. Investments made with the aim of securing growth will have a negative impact on profitability, which is why the company expects the profitability of the Qt business to be only slightly positive in 2014. Overall, the company predicts its consolidated net sales for 2014 to grow organically at a rate exceeding that of the general market. Overall profitability is expected to rise from last year’s levels, but further investments in growing the Qt business will continue to hold back the whole company’s profitability.
