Quarterly Report

Vienna –

  • Return to profitability with lower revenues.
  • Cost reduction and restructuring measures show an effect.
  • Internally financed repayment of financing tranches led to a balance sheet reduction.
  • Delays in tenders do not permit more precise information to be reported on the degree of profitability in H2 2021/22.

“Following a difficult phase, we have managed to ring in a visible turnaround. Looking back on the last two years, I am convinced that the main restructuring measures are already behind us and that we will finish the 2021/22 financial year with a profit again”, says Georg Kapsch, CEO of Kapsch TrafficCom.

Unless otherwise stated, Q1 2020/21 Q1 2021/22 +/-
all values in EUR million
Revenues 138.5 126.8 -8.4%
EBIT -11.3 6.6 > 100%
EBIT margin -8.2% 5.2% 13.4%p
Result for the period attributable to equity -10.0 3.2 > 100%
Earnings per share (EUR) -0.77 0.24 > 100%

Even though revenues of EUR 127 million were relatively low, we were able to conclude the first quarter with a profit. Operating result (earnings before interest and taxes, EBIT) achieved EUR 7 million (previous year: EUR -11 million), while the earnings attributable to the shareholders were EUR 3 million (previous year: EUR -10 million). This corresponds to earnings per share of EUR 0.24 (previous year: EUR -0.77).

The financial result was EUR -2 million (Previous year: EUR -1 million). More than half of this was the result of unrealized foreign exchange losses. As arranged, partial repayments of the promissory note bond and a bank loan in the total amount of EUR 49 million were made in June. Since the company had managed to increase the cash reserves in the months prior, these repayments were made using own funds. This effect of this asset/liability exchange was to reduce the balance sheet. On June 30, 2021, the balance sheet total was EUR 552 million (March 31, 2021: EUR 593 million).

The positive quarterly result and the lower balance sheet total made the equity ratio increase to 16% (March 31, 2021: 14%). The reduction in trade payables was the main reason for the negative free cash flow of EUR -11 million in the first quarter (previous year: EUR -27 million). Consequently, the net debt went up to EUR 181 million (March 31, 2021: EUR 170 million).
As of June 30, Kapsch TrafficCom employed 4,538 people (March 31, 2021: 4,657).
