Summary January-March 2013

  • Net sales EUR 2,082 thousand (2012: 2,212).
  • Net sales decreased 6% due to a significant decrease in software license net sales. Net sales from software rentals increased 45%.

  • Operating profit negative EUR 31 thousand (positive 199).

  • Profit before taxes negative EUR 42 thousand (positive 197).

Outlook 2013

QPR estimates its net sales in 2013 to remain on the same level or to grow slightly compared to previous year (2012: EUR 9.3 million). Especially net sales from software rentals and enterprise architecture services are expected to grow, but license net sales to decrease. Operating profit is likely to be smaller than in previous year (2012: EUR 0.9 million), but to improve significantly from the level in January-March 2013.

In 2013, the Company aims to continue investments in the development of its new software products. In recent years, QPR has launched two new software products that have excellent growth prospects. The strong growth of QPR EnterpriseArchitect business in Finland is estimated to continue, and in 2013 the Company is building a new international reseller network for the product. QPR EnterpriseArchitect is software for agile management of all dimensions in the enterprise architecture. The Company also invests in recruiting OEM partners for its innovative new QPR ProcessAnalyzer software product, which offers a fast way to automatically discover business processes by using data stored in the IT systems of an organization.

The Company is also developing its professional service offering, with the aim to grow its local business in Finland and to accelerate its international software sales. Internationally, this happens by offering complementary service concepts and solutions to the Company’s reseller partners.

REPORTING

This report complies with requirements of IAS 34 ”Interim Financial Reporting”. Starting from the beginning of 2013, the Company has applied certain new or revised IFRS standards and IFRIC interpretations as described in the Consolidated Financial Statements 2012. The implementation of these new and revised requirements have not materially impacted the reported figures. For all other parts, the accounting and valuation principles are the same as they were in the 2012 financial statements. This report is unaudited.

QPR Software’s business operations consist of software and professional services sales. The Company reports income for products and services as follows: software license sales, software maintenance services, software rentals, and professional services.

QPR reports the following business segments: Direct and OEM business (software license and rental sales, maintenance and professional services sales to direct customers and OEM customers) and Resellers (software license and rental sales, maintenance and professional services sales through resellers and the Russian subsidiary).

NET SALES

Net sales in January-March were EUR 2,082 thousand (2,212) and decreased 6% from the corresponding period of the previous year. Net sales decreased due to a clear and stronger than expected decline in software license sales, which was not fully compensated by the continued strong growth in software rental net sales.

Net sales by product group

EUR in thousands Jan-Mar 2013 Jan-Mar 2012 Change, % Jan-Dec 2012
         
Software licenses 198 452 -56 1,797
Software maintenance services 771 777 -1 3,223
Software rentals 390 269 45 1,221
Professional services 722 714 1 3,080
Total 2,082 2,212 -6 9,321

New software sales by QPR are increasingly made through software rentals rather than perpetual license sales, which is reflected as decline in software license net sales and increase in software rental net sales. In Finland, clear majority of new sales are made on a rental basis. Internationally, the transition is still ongoing.

In the first quarter, software license net sales decreased 56%, which the growth of 45% in software rental net sales was not able to fully compensate. The comparative figure for software license net sales in 2012 was positively impacted by a very significant license sale to the Malaysian public administration. Net sales from software maintenance services and professional services remained roughly on the same level as in the corresponding period last year. In professional services, net sales from enterprise architecture services grew strongly, while net sales from other professional services decreased due to, among others, changes in project timing. QPR expects net sales from professional services to grow during the rest of the year, compared to the level in the first quarter.

Total recurring revenue (net sales from software maintenance services and software rentals) grew 11% in the first quarter. The share of recurring revenue of total net sales increased to 56% (47).

Resellers 733 949 -23 3,830
Total 2,082 2,212 -6 9,321

In the first quarter, net sales in the Direct and OEM business grew 7% from the corresponding period last year. The growth was especially strong in net sales from software and services aiming at developing enterprise architecture. During the quarter, QPR strengthened further its personnel resources in this business.

Net sales in the Resellers unit decreased 23% in the first quarter, mainly due to decline in software license net sales, which was not fully compensated by the growth in software rental net sales.

SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

In April, after a tender competition, Hansel Oy, the central procurement unit of the Finnish Government, elected QPR Software as one of the frame agreement providers of management consulting services for years 2013–2017. The frame agreement enables QPR to offer its professional services in simplified tender competitions by government entities in their operational development and enterprise architecture projects.

In April, QPR Software published an agreement with CGI, the leading IT and business process services company, for a new process analysis service based on QPR ProcessAnalyzer software product. With the service, CGI will be able to show their customers the real state of their processes and help support them in reaching operational efficiency. For QPR, the partnership gives the opportunity to bring QPR ProcessAnalyzer to a larger audience.

GOVERNANCE

The AGM elected the following members to the Board of Directors: Kirsi Eräkangas, Jyrki Kontio, Vesa-Pekka Leskinen and Topi Piela.

SHORT-TERM RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES

Internal control and risk management in QPR Software Plc aims to ensure that the Company operates efficiently and effectively, distributes reliable information, complies with regulations and operational principles, reaches its strategic goals, reacts to changes in the market and operational environment, and ensures the continuity of its business.

QPR has identified the following four groups of risks related to its operations: risks related to business operations (country, customer, service delivery, personnel, legal and financial risks as well as risks related to the Company’s resellers), risks related to information and products (QPR products, IPR, data security), risks related to financing (foreign currency, bad debt), and risks related to new businesses (growth of new business, product development investments in new business). The Company has an insurance policy for property, operational and liability risks. The Company monitors country, customer, personnel and finance risks also in the Russian subsidiary OOO QPR Software.

Financial risks include reasonable credit risk concerning individual business partners, which is characteristic to any international business. QPR seeks to limit this credit risk by continuous monitoring of standard payment terms, receivables and credit limits. The escalated economic crisis in the euro area has, according to management’s estimate, to some extent increased the credit risk that has remained on a moderate level in recent years. In the reporting period, EUR 21 thousand (30) of credit losses were recorded. The amount of trade receivables over 60 days past due was 8% (21) of total trade receivables at the end of the quarter.

Approximately 70% of Group’s trade receivables are in euro. At the end of the quarter, the Company had not hedged its foreign currency (non-euro) trade receivables.

No significant changes have taken place in QPR’s short-term risks and uncertainties during the reporting period. Risks and risk management related to the Company’s business are further described in the Annual Report 2012, pages 14-15 (www.qpr.com/investors/key-figures-and-reports.htm).

OUTLOOK 2013

QPR estimates its net sales in 2013 to remain on the same level or to grow slightly compared to previous year (2012: EUR 9.3 million). Especially net sales from software rentals and enterprise architecture services are expected to grow, but license net sales to decrease. Operating profit is likely to be smaller than in previous year (2012: EUR 0.9 million), but to improve significantly from the level in January-March 2013.

In 2013, the Company aims to continue investments in the development of its new software products. In recent years, QPR has launched two new software products that have excellent growth prospects. The strong growth of QPR EnterpriseArchitect business in Finland is estimated to continue, and in 2013 the Company is building a new international reseller network for the product. QPR EnterpriseArchitect is software for agile management of all dimensions in the enterprise architecture. The Company also invests in recruiting OEM partners for its innovative new QPR ProcessAnalyzer software product, which offers a fast way to automatically discover business processes by using data stored in the IT systems of an organization.
