AKKA TECHNOLOGIES : 2013 revenue

le
0

The fourth quarter was marked by growth in the French operations, despite one less working day and what remains a challenging economic environment.
MBtech recorded sequential revenue growth for the second consecutive quarter.
Further to this stabilisation, 2013 saw AKKA Technologies lay the foundations for the success of MBtech's integration and its deployment in Germany.

 

2013 revenue

  • AKKA Technologies reported Q4 revenue of ¤231.1 million, a decline of 1.6% compared with the fourth quarter of 2012, and a decline of 1.3% at constant scope and exchange rates. At constant scope, exchange rates and working days, the Group posted growth of 0.25%.
  • France confirmed its return to growth in the third quarter. Germany benefited from further sequential revenue growth for MBtech.
  • In total, the Group recorded 2013 revenue of ¤878.4 million, slightly above its target of ¤875 million.

 

2013 revenue by region - At constant scope and exchange rates

  • France recorded a 0.4% increase in fourth-quarter revenue to ¤119.6 million. At constant working days, the increase was 2% despite what remains a competitive environment. France reported 2013 revenue of ¤450.5 million, up very slightly compared with the ¤448.9 million consolidated in 2012. Revenue was flat at constant scope. Growth in the second half (+1.5%) offset the decline in the first half (-1.5%). At constant working days, revenue growth was 0.8% in 2013.
  • Germany recorded a 5.0% decline in fourth-quarter revenue to ¤81.9 million. AKKA Technologies' legacy German businesses reported growth of 11.6% in Q4 and 13.4% over the full year. MBtech continued its gradual recovery: the Group's new subsidiary reported a decline of 6.4% in revenue in Germany in the fourth quarter, compared with declines of 12.2% in the third quarter and 19.0% in H1.
  • Revenue from international operations (excluding Germany) totalled ¤29.5 million, an increase of 2.6% compared with the fourth quarter of 2012. Excluding MBtech, international operations grew by 7.2% over the full year. After a decline of 21.3% in the first nine months of the year, MBtech's international operations (excluding Germany) saw their revenue stabilise in Q4: +0.6% to ¤7.3 million.

 

Medium-term outlook

  • Management remains very confident about its medium-term growth plan for the Group.
  • Maurice Ricci, Group Chairman and CEO, said: "Further to the sequential stabilisation of MBtech's revenue achieved during the third and fourth quarters, 2013 saw us lay the foundations for the success of MBtech's integration and our deployment in Germany. MBtech has given AKKA Technologies global positioning via a differentiated offering and a single European base, offering many levers in terms of international growth."
  • Combined with the Group's technological DNA, this positioning is reflected in the Group's ability to discuss a very diverse range of strategic projects - in terms of size, value added and comprehensive understanding of their needs - with its customers and prospects. This should enable it to step up its diversification policy starting in 2014.
  • The Group's DNA and innovation capacity were rewarded twice during the second half:

    • On 7 November, the French Ministries for the Environment, Sustainable Development and Energy and for Productive Recovery awarded it the 2013 National Engineering Grand Prix for its autonomous and futuristic Link & Go electric concept car.

    • AKKA Technologies was ranked third (among medium-sized companies) in the Deloitte In Extenso Technology Fast 50, which rewards fast-growing technology companies.

2013 enabled the Group to lay the foundations for the success of MBtech's integration and its deployment in Germany. This reinforced its ability to meet its medium-term target of ¤100 million in operating income* without compromising its financial equilibrium.

Next release: 2013 earnings, on 8 April 2014 before trading.
