NNIT delivers organic revenue growth of 6.2% and an operating profit margin of 9.6% in the first six months of 2016.
Performance highlights for the first six months of 2016
- Revenue increased by 6.2% in reported currencies to DKK 1,321m and by 6.3% in constant currencies
- Operating profit margin was 9.6% in reported currencies and 9.1% in constant currencies compared with 9.2% in 6M 2015
- Operating profit increased by 10.6% to DKK 126m in reported currencies primarily in IT Operation Services
- Net profit decreased by 1.3% to DKK 93m mainly due to a negative value adjustment of Novo Nordisk shares used to hedge NNIT's long term incentive program before 2015
- Free cash flow increased by DKK 58m to DKK 99m mainly driven by a positive development in working capital in the first three months and a lower investment level
- Order backlog for 2016 at the beginning of Q3 2016 increased by DKK 182m to DKK 2,522m, corresponding to 7.8% compared with the order backlog for 2015 at the beginning of Q3 2015
- Outlook for 2016 in constant currencies is maintained with a reduced level of investment:
- Revenue is forecasted to grow 5-8% in constant currencies, whereas revenue growth in reported currencies is expected to be around 0.1pp lower (previously 0.3pp lower) based on the current exchange rates
- Operating profit margin is forecasted to be 10-11% in constant currencies, whereas operating profit margin in reported currencies is expected to be around 0.5pp higher (previously 0.6pp higher) based on the current exchange rates
- The expected level of investments in 2016 is reduced from 7-8% to 6-7% of total revenue as investments related to an additional data center are only to a limited extend expected to impact 2016
- The Board of Directors has decided to pay an interim dividend for 2016 of DKK 2.00 per share corresponding to DKK 48.5m
Per Kogut, CEO at NNIT comments: "The results for the first six months confirm NNIT's ability to deliver consistent and profitable organic growth in accordance with our guidance. I am particularly encouraged by the trust shown in NNIT by several market leading companies resulting in a number of significant contract announcements during Q2. They solidify our order backlog for 2016 and document a steady demand for the high-quality services we provide."
