Frankfurt/Main, November 9, 2017 - euromicron AG, a medium-sized technology group and specialist for the Internet of Things (IoT), is today publishing its report on the third quarter of 2017.
Sales at September 30, 2017, were EUR 244.0 million, a year-on-year increase of around 7.7% (previous year: EUR 226.6 million). There is even double-digit sales growth of 10.0% from continuing operations after adjustment for sales effects from discontinued or sold operations. There was also a positive performance in terms of operating EBITDA, which increased from EUR 1.4 million to EUR 7.2 million. The consolidated net loss for the period at September 30, 2017, was EUR -3.8 million and so was reduced by EUR 6.0 million compared to the previous year (net loss of EUR -9.8 million).
Bettina Meyer, Spokeswoman of the Executive Board, comments: "The transformation strategy of euromicron AG also reaped positive results in the third quarter of 2017. Just about all key figures were able to be improved compared to the first nine months of fiscal 2016. That confirms we're on the right track and the strategic measures are having an impact."
"Companies in all industries are increasingly driving digitization of their business models - and implementation of that offers far-reaching development opportunities for the euromicron Group. We're well-positioned in the SME sector and a preferred partner for enterprises when it comes to digitization. Apart from our bread-and-butter business, we're therefore focusing on innovative orders with a large share of services. That's reflected in the Group's new projects, which include predictive maintenance models, smart security and building technology, and cybersecurity solutions. That means we can leverage potential in the IoT market to the full and develop scalable solutions," adds Jürgen Hansjosten from euromicron's Executive Board.
That is also evidenced in the euromicron Group's new orders from continuing operations, which totaled EUR 265.3 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2017 or EUR 18.9 million above the comparative figure for the previous year (EUR 246.4 million). Order books were EUR 139.5 million, likewise a sharp increase - of EUR 17.1 million - on the previous year's EUR 122.4 million.
Moreover, the company has made further progress in optimizing its working capital. The working capital ratio was reduced by 3.5 percentage points to 16.6% compared to 20.1% at September 30, 2016. After adjustment for the effects of factoring, working capital at September 30, 2017, was EUR 84.4 million and so EUR -3.1 million below the figure at September 30, 2016 (EUR 87.5 million) despite the sharp increase in sales volume.
The cash flow from operating activities (after adjustment for the effects of factoring) at September 30, 2017, was EUR -15.6 million, an improvement of EUR 2.1 million (previous year: EUR -17.7 million). The euromicron Group's net debt totaled EUR -103.7 million (previous year: EUR -100.9 million). This slight increase is due in particular to the increased volume of investment.
With regard to the group's further business performance, Bettina Meyer states: "New business models require investment and advance work and outlays, which result in an improvement in competitiveness in the medium term. We feel sure that, with the measures we're implementing, we're creating a forward-looking setup in the market for the euromicron Group with its strategic core fields. We aim to complete the group's transformation in 2018."
The full report for the third quarter of 2017 is available as of today on the company's website at www.euromicron.de in the section "Investor Relations/Publications/Financial Reports".
