WAALWIJK, Nederland, July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Michiel Alting von Geusau, CEO van DOCDATA N.V.: "Onze onderneming heeft een uitstekend eerste halfjaar van 2013 achter de rug, gekenmerkt door winstgevende groei, waar alle bedrijven aan hebben bijgedragen. Binnen onze visie 2015 'Groei door kwaliteit' is er door onze mensen hard gewerkt om deze groei te realiseren en de kwaliteit op alle niveaus van onze organisatie te kunnen blijven waarborgen. De hoge kwaliteit van onze dienstverlening blijft onze prioriteit. De brutowinstmarge blijft wel onder druk staan door de focus op kostenreductie door onze klanten en de hogere kosten waarmee wij worden geconfronteerd. Door onzeoverheadbeperkt te houden, hebben wij het effect op de resultaten kunnen minimaliseren. Voor het hele jaar 2013 zijn onze omzet- en winstverwachtingen veelbelovend. Onze focus blijft onverminderd op het binnenhalen van nieuwe business om de omzet over 2014 op peil te houden."

Afbeelding 1:    Tabel met belangrijkste aspecten van de geconsolideerde financiële resultaten en financiële positie voor het halfjaar geëindigd op 30 juni 2013 respectievelijk 30 juni 2012

Belangrijkste aspecten van het eerste halfjaar van 2013

De omzet van DOCDATA N.V. is in het eerste halfjaar van 2013 met € 14,6 miljoen gestegen tot € 82,0 miljoen (+22%). Deze omzetstijging is volledig autonoom gerealiseerd door het verder gestegen transactievolume voor bestaande en nieuwe klanten van het E-commerce service bedrijf Docdata en door een groter aantal afgeleverde orders door het Technologiebedrijf IAI industrial systems.

In het eerste halfjaar van 2013 is een hogere brutowinst behaald van € 18,5 miljoen ten opzichte van € 16,9 miljoen in het eerste halfjaar van 2012 (+10%). De brutowinstmarge over het eerste halfjaar van 2013 is uitgekomen op 22,6% ten opzichte van 25,1% in het eerste halfjaar van 2012. Ten opzichte van de brutowinstmarge over het tweede halfjaar van 2012 van 21,3% is daarentegen sprake van een verbeterde brutowinstmarge, dat voornamelijk het resultaat is van een gerealiseerde hogere efficiency.

In het eerste halfjaar van 2013 is een bedrijfsresultaat voor financieringsresultaat (EBIT) gerealiseerd van € 7,3 miljoen ten opzichte van € 5,9 miljoen in het eerste halfjaar van 2012 (+24%). In de EBIT voor zowel het eerste halfjaar van 2013 als het eerste halfjaar van 2012 zijn geen eenmalige kosten van enige omvang verantwoord. De verbetering van de EBIT is voornamelijk het gevolg van de combinatie van gestegen brutowinst en zeer beperkte absolute stijging van de verkoop- en algemene beheerskosten. De EBITDA is in het eerste halfjaar van 2013 uitgekomen op € 10,5 miljoen ten opzichte van € 8,4 miljoen in het eerste halfjaar van 2012 (+25%).

De winst over het eerste halfjaar van 2013 bedraagt € 5,1 miljoen en is meer dan 20% gestegen ten opzichte van de winst over het eerste halfjaar van 2012 (€ 4,2 miljoen). Dit is voornamelijk het gevolg van de verbeterde EBIT (+ € 1,4 miljoen), in combinatie met een lager nettofinancieringsresultaat (-/- € 0,2 miljoen; uitsluitend valutakoerseffect) en een gestegen belastinglast (-/- € 0,3 miljoen). De gestegen belastinglast is het gevolg van de hogere winst voor belasting bij een lagere effectieve belastingdruk in het eerste halfjaar van 2013 (29,1%) ten opzichte van het eerste halfjaar van 2012 (29,6%); deze lagere effectieve belastingdruk is het gevolg van een hogere bijdrage in de winst van het eerste halfjaar van 2013 door de Nederlandse bedrijfsactiviteiten die worden belast tegen een lager (gemiddeld) belastingtarief dan in Duitsland.

DOCDATA N.V. heeft haar sterke financiële positie gedurende het eerste halfjaar van 2013 gehandhaafd, uitmondend in een solvabiliteitsratio van 50,3% per 30 juni 2013 (31 december 2012: 45,2%). Deze verbeterde solvabiliteit is het gevolg van de combinatie van de belangrijkste mutaties in het eigen vermogen, door de winst over het eerste halfjaar van 2013 (€ 5,1 miljoen) en het in mei 2013 uitgekeerde dividend uit de winst over 2012 (€ 3,9 miljoen), waardoor het eigen vermogen is gestegen tot € 39,0 miljoen per 30 juni 2013. Daarnaast is het balanstotaal per 30 juni 2013 (geschoond voor het effect van de niet-ter-vrije-beschikking-staande banktegoeden van Stichting foundation docdata payments) gedaald tot € 69,2 miljoen (31 december 2012: € 71,3 miljoen).

Contracten met grotere klanten

De omzet van onze grootste klant is in het eerste halfjaar 2013 uitgekomen op 37% van de totale omzet en de verwachting is dat dit in de tweede helft 2013 zal dalen tot ongeveer 30%. Voor 2014 verwachten wij een sterkere daling, welke voornamelijk wordt veroorzaakt door de daling van de omzet van deze klant in combinatie met de groei van de omzet van onze andere klanten.

Investeringen

De onderneming heeft in het eerste halfjaar van 2013 investeringen gedaan voor in totaal € 5,2 miljoen, waarvan € 4,5 miljoen in materiële vaste activa (m.n. capaciteitsuitbreiding van onze magazijninrichtingen in Waalwijk en Groβbeeren) en € 0,6 miljoen in immateriële activa (m.n. IT-ontwikkelingskosten voor het betaalplatform van Docdata Payments en ontwikkelingskosten voor de nieuwe generatie van het BookMaster One® systeem van IAI). In het tweede halfjaar van 2013 verwachten wij een lager niveau aan investeringen en zal de focus meer komen te liggen op het realiseren van alle orders, zowel voor het E-commerce service bedrijf Docdata als voor het Technologiebedrijf IAI industrial systems. Wij verwachten dat de huidige capaciteit voldoende is om het hoogseizoen succesvol af te wikkelen.

Vooruitzichten

In 2013 zal de focus blijven liggen op het realiseren van verdere groei voor elk van beide bedrijfsonderdelen. Deze groei zal voornamelijk autonoom zijn. Mogelijke overnames zullen naar verwachting beperkt van omvang zijn en er vooral op gericht zijn om onze positie in markten waarin we actief zijn verder te verstevigen.

Personeel en organisatie

Het vaste personeelsbestand van de Groep is, ten opzichte van eind 2012, in het eerste halfjaar 2013 met 4,2% gestegen tot 1.176 medewerkers (1.107 FTE) als gevolg van autonome groei.

In 2013 zijn we begonnen met het ontwikkelen van een gericht beleid ten aanzien van personeelszaken en duurzaamheid. Het succes van onze onderneming is afhankelijk van onze vaste en ingehuurde medewerkers. Daarom streven wij er naar om een goede werkgever te zijn. Uit de resultaten van de medewerker-tevredenheidsonderzoeken bij onze bedrijven blijkt dat DOCDATA tevreden kan zijn met de resultaten, maar ook verbeterpunten heeft gedefinieerd. Gekeken wordt op welke wijze wij duurzaamheid op een kostenefficiënte wijze verder kunnen implementeren bij onze bedrijven.

Raad van Commissarissen

De jaarlijkse Algemene Vergadering van Aandeelhouders van DOCDATA N.V. heeft op 14 mei 2013 het voorstel goedgekeurd om de heer A. Schouwenaar te herbenoemen als commissaris van de vennootschap voor een termijn van twee jaar. Aangezien de heer Schouwenaar ten tijde van de jaarvergadering het in artikel 142a van Boek 2 van het Burgerlijk Wetboek in het kader van de Wet Bestuur en Toezicht genoemde maximale aantal commissariaten overschreed, is het aandeelhoudersbesluit omtrent herbenoeming genomen onder opschortende voorwaarde tot het moment waarop de heer Schouwenaar het voorzitterschap van alle commissariaten waar hij toen voorzitter was zou hebben beëindigd. Per 27 juni 2013 is door de heer Schouwenaar aan deze voorwaarde voldaan en derhalve is zijn herbenoeming met ingang van diezelfde datum van kracht geworden.

DOCDATA N.V. stelt de geconsolideerde jaarrekening op volgens de International Financial Reporting Standards zoals aanvaard binnen de Europese Unie (hierna genoemd IFRS).

Revenue, gross profit (margin) and EBIT

Revenue of the E-commerce service company Docdata increased with € 11.5 million (+18%). This revenue increased due to autonomous growth in all countries. All companies realised a higher number of transactions for both existing and new customers. The major part of the growth was realised in Germany.

The gross profit increased with € 0.7 million (+5%). The increased gross profit is the result of the revenue growth in Germany and the Netherlands. Compared with the first half-year 2012, the gross profit margin decreased. This is the direct result of lower prices and higher costs for temporary labour in Germany. Furthermore, due to high investments in new warehouses and warehouse equipment in the Netherlands, depreciation charges increased as from the second half-year 2012. Compared to the gross profit margin realised in the second half-year 2012 (21.3%) the gross profit margin increased in the first half-year 2013 due to improved efficiencies.

The operating profit increased with € 0.9 million (+15%) mainly resulting from the increased gross profit. Selling and administrative expenses remained on a similar level. In the first half-year 2012 and 2013 no restructuring costs or non-recurring costs have been recognised.

Market

In the established European e-commerce markets (e.g. the United Kingdom, Germany and the Netherlands) we see a slowdown of the growth. In other European markets we expect the growth levels to remain strong (e.g. Italy, Belgium and Poland). We therefore decided to put more focus on these other European markets.

Within the e-commerce market there is a clear shift from full focus on growth towards a more balanced focus on profitable growth. In order to realise profitable growth, an analysis of the full e-commerce chain is needed in order to optimize revenue in relation to the costs this revenue creates. This also means that costs need to be reduced in the whole value chain. We work closely with our clients in order to realise a lower cost per order.

Expectations

We see a strong development for the second half-year 2013. Our clients perform well and we remain focussed on delivering a high quality service for our clients in order to reach high levels of consumer satisfaction.

International expansion

As international expansion is a key focus for the E-commerce service company Docdata, the full ownership was acquired on 5 June 2013 of an existing (empty) private limited liability company incorporated to Polish law, after which the name was changed into Docdata Fulfilment sp. z o.o. Within the coming months, we will actively enter the Polish market offering our services. This Group company will be located in Swiebodzin in Poland, where a warehouse has been rented of approximately 2,500 square meters.

Recently, a three-year contract has been signed with an existing client for the return handling by this new subsidiary of part of the returns coming from the German market and all returns from the Polish market. The business activities of this company are expected to start at the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2013.

Revenue, gross profit (margin) and EBIT

IAI industrial systems' revenue increased with € 3.1 million (+95%) due to more system deliveries during the first half-year 2013. In January 2013, a new order for the Netherlands was signed to supply two BookMaster One systems and three CardMaster One systems for the personalisation of passports and identity cards. These systems will be delivered in the second half-year 2013.

The gross profit increased with € 0.9 million (+68%) due to higher sales. The gross profit margin decreased due to a different sales mix and a lower margin on delivered systems.

The operating profit increased with € 0.5 million as a combined effect of higher gross profit and higher selling and administrative expenses.

Expectations

Per 30 June 2013, the order book of IAI industrial systems contains orders with a sales value of € 9.5 million compared to € 7.0 million per 31 December 2012. In the second half-year 2013 we expect to deliver a higher order volume and number of large systems to our clients.

  • Stichting foundation docdata payments: on 26 January 2012, docdata payments B.V. and Stichting foundation docdata payments have signed an agreement in which the terms and conditions, as well as the way of execution, are confirmed to enable Stichting foundation docdata payments to adequately fulfil its statutory obligations. The purpose and goal of the Stichting is to manage and control money to the benefit of the rightful owners (the right holders) of that money. Through the agreement, the risks and rewards from the Stichting are transferred to the benefit or the charge of docdata payments B.V. The balance sheet of Stichting foundation docdata payments has been included in the DOCDATA consolidation starting per the signing date of the agreement. This will only have an effect on cash and cash equivalents and trade and other payables in the Group's consolidated balance sheet, depending on the cash position of Stichting foundation docdata payments. These cash and cash equivalents are fully restricted and are not at the disposition of the Group;
  • FEHA LaserTec Halle GmbH: on 29 February 2012, IAI industrial systems GmbH acquired 100% of the issued share capital of FEHA LaserTec Halle GmbH.

This subsidiary develops and produces specialised lasers, which are bought by IAI industrial systems B.V. as component to be installed in several security systems (a.o. MicroPerf® systems). The activities and results of FEHA have been included in the DOCDATA consolidation starting per the transaction date. FEHA realised revenue of € 1.6 million in 2011 with on average 19 employees (18.6 FTE). With this acquisition, IAI aims to strengthen its position in various interesting markets for the processing of materials and products with specific laser solutions and applications;
  • docdata payments B.V.: on 20 December 2012, the Group acquired through its intermediate holding company DOCdata Nederland B.V. the complete 20.61% non-controlling interest in docdata payments B.V. from the only other (external) shareholder Conclusion Consultants B.V. As of that date, the Group has full ownership of all shares in docdata payments B.V. and following this transaction, a non-controlling interest is no longer accounted for in the consolidated financial statements of the Group;
  • Docdata e-Services B.V.: on 17 January 2012, the legal company name of docdata media B.V. was changed into Docdata e-Services B.V., following the sale of the media replication activities per 31 December 2011 to Replifact Media B.V. The existing activities of this subsidiary now consist of e-commerce fulfilment services, web photography and other related services.

The book value of property, plant and equipment has increased with € 2.2 million in the half-year ended 30 June 2013 as a combined result from capital expenditure of € 4.5 million and depreciation charges of € 2.3 million. Capital expenditure in the half-year ended 30 June 2013 is for € 1.3 million accounted for as 'under construction', which predominantly relates to the investment by Docdata Fulfilment for the further expansion of the logistic centre in Waalwijk, the Netherlands and of the logistic centre in Groβbeeren, Germany.

    Total                                   8,564         8,948


The book value for intangible assets has decreased with € 0.4 million during the half-year ended 30 June 2013, due to the following:

  • capital expenditure in IT platforms and development costs (€ 0.6 million in total) for investments by Docdata Payments in the further development of their payment platform (€ 0.3 million) and investments by IAI industrial systems in costs for the development of second generation systems (e.g. BookMaster One®) for the security market (€ 0.3 million);
  • amortisation charges for customer contracts and IT platforms (€ 0.9 million in total);
  • currency exchange loss (€ 0.1 million) on the valuation of the intangible assets with an original value in British pounds (i.e. related to the Braywood acquisitions).

6.9    Inventories

    Raw and auxiliary materials (including spare
    parts)                                            1,320         1,189
    Total                                             8,376         6,240


The book value of inventories increased € 2.1 million in the half-year ended 30 June 2013, which is the combined effect of increased work in progress at IAI industrial systems (€ 2.5 million), a lower finished goods inventory level (€ 0.5 million) and a higher inventory level for raw and auxiliary materials (€ 0.1 million). The lower finished goods inventory level is predominantly caused by the lower inventory of company clothing by Docdata Fashion Services GmbH; the total book value of this company clothing inventory is € 1.1 million. The Company only bears a limited inventory risk on this stock, as the clients have accepted their obligation to take over this inventory should they terminate their contract with Docdata Fashion Services GmbH. The increase of the inventory value of raw and auxiliary materials is mainly due to the higher production level of IAI industrial systems.

IAI industrial systems' order book developed in the half-year ended 30 June 2013 from € 6.7 million at 31 December 2012 to € 8.9 million at 30 June 2013 resulting from systems' deliveries in the half-year ended 30 June 2013 with revenue of € 5.9 million and new orders booked with a total sales value of € 8.1 million. The increased order book is also reflected in the book value per 30 June 2013 of work in progress, as the largest part of the orders included in work in progress is scheduled for delivery in the second half-year of 2013.

6.11    Stichting foundation docdata payments

The balance sheet of Stichting foundation docdata payments reads as follows:

                                          30 June   31 December

    Trade and other receivables               120           163
    Restricted cash and cash equivalents    8,424        11,854
    Total current assets                    8,544        12,017

    Total assets                            8,544        12,017

    Other non-current liabilities             289           268

    Total liabilities                       8,544        12,017


Of these items in the balance sheet of Stichting foundation docdata payments, the following items have certain restrictions which should be honoured by the Group:

  • restricted cash and cash equivalents is fully restricted cash, as the balance concerns cash received from customers on behalf of the Docdata Payments merchants which shall have to be paid to the merchants, net of charged Docdata Payments fees;
  • other non-current liabilities concerns advance payments received from merchants in depository accounts;
  • trade and other payables reflect the payment obligations towards the merchants in view of the settlements for realised transactions for which money has already been collected from consumers that shall have to be paid to the merchants.

6.12    Net financing income / (expenses)

Net financing expenses for the half-year ended 30 June 2013 amounted to € 133 thousand compared to net financing income of € 53 thousand for the half-year ended 30 June 2012. This decrease of € 0.2 million is predominantly caused by the foreign currency exchange result in the half-year ended 30 June 2013 (€ 0.1 million loss) compared to the half-year ended 30 June 2012 (€ 0.1 million profit) related to the British pound.

6.13    Income tax expense

DOCDATA's effective tax rate in the half-year ended 30 June 2013 was 29.1% with an income tax expense of € 2.1 million on a profit before income tax of € 7.2 million. In the half-year ended 30 June 2012, the profit before income tax (excluding share of losses of associates) amounted to € 6.0 million and the income tax expense amounted to € 1.8 million (effective tax rate: 29.6%). The decreased effective tax rate represents that the mix of the profit before income tax which origins from the German and the Netherlands operations has changed, in the way that the relative share of the Dutch profit before tax (taxed at a lower tax rate) has increased in the half-year ended 30 June 2013 compared to the German profit before tax.

The income tax expense of € 2.1 million in the half-year ended 30 June 2013 is the combined result of the following tax treatments of the results per country:

  • In the Netherlands, income taxes are recorded at a corporate income tax rate of 25.0% on the taxable income for the Dutch fiscal entity as well as for the Dutch subsidiaries that are not part of this fiscal entity (2012: 25.0%).
  • In the United Kingdom, income taxes are recorded against a blended corporate income tax rate of 23.25% (2011: 24.5%).
  • In Germany, income taxes are recorded at a corporate income tax rate of in general between 26% and around 32% on taxable income for the German entities when and where applicable, depending on the actual region in Germany of their legal seat (e.g. Berlin, Munich or Münster region).

6.14    Liquidity and capital resources

The General Annual Meeting of Shareholders held on 14 May 2013 approved the proposal to distribute a dividend of € 0.55 per ordinary share outstanding, which had a decreasing impact of € 3.9 million on retained earnings within the equity of the Company in the half-year ended 30 June 2013. This dividend was paid by the Company on 24 May 2013 from the net cash available.

In the half-year ended 30 June 2013 all remaining 66,000 outstanding share options were exercised from the 2008 and 2009 series at an average exercise price of € 6.44 per share. The underlying shares have been delivered by the Company from the shares in stock. The proceeds of € 0.4 million have been credited to equity ('Reserve for own shares'). Per 30 June 2013, the Company had no own shares in stock anymore, which is also the situation per today, 18 July 2013. Therefore, the debit balance of the Reserve for own shares, created at the purchase of the own shares by the Company, has been realised in the half-year ended 30 June 2013 and the related debit reserve amount of € 492 thousand was released against retained earnings. Per 30 June 2013 no share options remain as all options series (up to and including 2009) are fully exercised, so that the 2006 Personnel Options Plan has come to an end.

The Performance Shares granted conditionally in 2010 vested at 14 May 2013 with a vesting percentage of 91.62%, which was based on the average annual Total Shareholder Return growth realised over the three-year performance period covering the financial years 2010, 2011 and 2012. For a total number of 18,284 outstanding Performance Shares the Company has delivered 16,758 own shares, which were bought for an amount of € 213 thousand (average price: € 12.68 per share) through a broker on the NYSE Euronext Amsterdam stock market on the day following the publication of the 2012 financial results (i.e. purchase date 22 February 2013). Furthermore, a total number of 148,157 Performance Shares are outstanding per 30 June 2013, which have been granted conditionally in 2011 (40,755 Performance Shares; vesting date: 17 June 2014), in 2012 (64,387 Performance Shares; vesting date: 1 June 2015) and in 2013 (43,015 Performance Shares; vesting date: 16 May 2016). The own shares required at vesting of each of these Performance Share Plans will be bought by the Company, if and when needed in the future, through an external broker at the NYSE Euronext Amsterdam stock market. The 'Reserve for own shares' balance in equity per 30 June 2013 amounts to € 334 thousand (credit), representing the total of all costs recorded against income for the Performance Shares granted in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Each year when Performance Shares will vest, the balance will be partially released to retained earnings for the corresponding amount related to those specific Performance Shares.

As the Company holds no own shares anymore per date of 14 May 2013, following the above mentioned exercise of options and vesting of Performance Shares, the Company has disclosed per that same date its holdings in DOCDATA N.V. at 0%, in accordance with Chapter 5.2 of the Financial Supervision Act ('Wet op het financieel toezicht').

In the half-year ended 30 June 2013, the Group realised net cash from operating activities of € 2.5 million (half-year ended 30 June 2012: € 2.0 million). Furthermore, € 0.4 million in cash was received from the exercise of all the remaining outstanding share options. In total, this resulted in a total cash-in of € 2.9 million for the half-year ended 30 June 2013. With these funds, the Group invested in the half-year ended 30 June 2013 a total amount of € 9.3 million, containing the payment of the 2012 dividend (€ 3.9 million), capital expenditure in property, plant and equipment (€ 4.5 million, mainly for warehousing equipment in Waalwijk and Groβbeeren) and intangibles (€ 0.6 million, mainly for IT development costs for the payments platform and development costs for second generation systems of IAI industrial systems), the purchase of own shares necessary for the vesting of the Performance Share Plan 2010 (€ 0.2 million) and the distribution of a loan to associates and other investments (€ 0.1 million). As a result, the net cash position of the Group has decreased with € 6.4 million to a net cash position of € 2.4 million per 30 June 2013 (31 December 2012: net cash surplus of € 8.8 million), excluding the restricted cash position per 30 June 2013 of Stichting foundation docdata payments (€ 8.4 million).
