quarterly report/Interim Report for the first three quarters of 2016

In the first nine months of 2016 Petro Welt Technologies AG, Vienna (formerly C.A.T oil AG, change of name at August 23, 2016) continued the sound development of its business operations despite the challenging environment in the industry and improved the level of profitability significantly: The revenues in Russian Roubles increased by 3.2% compared to the same period of previous year, revenues in Euro decreased by 10.4%, which is less than the 15.1% depreciation of the currency.

EBITDA margin rose to 28.7% and the equity ratio improved from 48.3% to 53.9%. This positive development of the company is attributable to management efforts to optimize cost of sales, to limit administrative and financial expenses, raise synergies between the companies of PeWeTe Group and to enhance the share of multi-stage fracturing operations. The geographical expansion of operations in Siberia and southern Orenburg contributes to the growth as well as the acquisition of a fracturing company in Kazakhstan in September this year.

“18 months after we assumed management control of the company we can state that we accomplished the most important goal to reorganize the company and reach a satisfactory profitability level under most difficult market conditions”, states Yury Semenov, CEO of Petro Welt Technologies AG and adds: “From this basis, which we will constantly improve, we can take a chance to enter new ventures and grow Petro Welt Technologies further under the precondition of sustainable profitability.”

Successful Acquisition Petro Welt Technologies AG, Vienna, concluded the acquisition of the Kazakh fracturing subsidiary of Trican Well Service Ltd., Calgary on 1 September 2016. The acquired firm, which was renamed to Petro Welt Technologies Kazakhstan LLP, is specialized in fracturing and actively serves a number of international and local customers throughout Kazakhstan. The business activities of the company, the technologies in use and the quality of the services offered are complementary to the fracturing segment of Petro Welt Technologies in Kazakhstan. So the deal should produce beneficial synergies for the Group. The integration of the acquired company in the corporate structures of Petro Welt Technologies AG will be completed by the end of the year. In September 2016, Petro Welt Technologies Kazakhstan LLP contributed revenue of EUR 278 thousand and a net profit of EUR 62 thousand to the business results of the Group.

Confident outlook for 2016 The positive development of the company’s financial performance indicators during the first nine months of 2016 creates a sound basis for reliable profit generation. The management anticipates sales revenue to reach approx. EUR 295 – 300 million in 2016, and the management hopes to maintain the improved EBIT margin at the range of 13 – 15%. In turn, this could enable the company to outperform last year’s operating results and reach a level of EUR 39 – 41 million in 2016. This forecast does not take account of potential external economic shocks.
