Business operations

QPR Software focuses on providing organizations software and professional services for strategy execution, performance and process management, process mining and enterprise architecture. Our software and services are used in over 50 countries. The Company offers its customers insight to their business operations through modeling, analysis and performance monitoring. This insight enables customers to streamline and improve operations and to execute their strategies swiftly and effectively.

 

OUTLOOK

Operating environment and market outlook

QPR expects the demand for process mining software to grow in its home market in Finland, as well as in the broader European market. The software market for process mining is relatively new and, for the time being, its market size is still small. Market maturity varies greatly from one country to another, but already last year we experienced strong market growth in several European countries. This growth is expected to continue this year, and the Company believes that its QPR ProcessAnalyzer product has a strong position in the market.

In developed markets, competition in process and enterprise architecture modeling and performance management software is expected to continue to increase. In developing markets, especially in the Middle East and Africa, there is still strong growth potential for these software products.

 

Outlook for 2016

The Company´s outlook is unchanged from published outlook in unaudited financial results bulletin on February 11, 2016.

In process mining software and process analysis services, QPR continues its investments in direct sales in Finland and international channel sales, and estimates that this business will continue to grow this year.

In process and enterprise architecture modeling and performance management software, the tightened competition is expected to continue to have a negative impact on sales in part of QPR´s reseller channel, especially in developed markets. To offset this impact, QPR seeks growth from new reseller partnerships initiated in 2015, especially from Middle East and Africa.

The Company believes that in its home market, Finland, it will maintain the leading position as a process modeling and analysis software vendor targeting operational development functions in organizations; as well as to preserve QPR’s in recent years strengthened position in operational development consulting.

The Company estimates that its operating profit excluding non-recurring items will grow in 2016 compared to 2015.

REPORTING

QPR Software innovates, develops, sells and delivers software and services in international markets aimed at operational development in organizations. QPR Software reports one operating segment: Operational development of organizations. In addition to this, the Company reports revenue from products and services as follows: Software license sales, Software maintenance services, Software rentals, and Consulting. Software rentals and Software maintenance services together form the recurring revenue reported by the Company. Recurring revenue is based on long-term contracts continuing for the time being or for a fixed period of several years. Typically rental and maintenance charges are invoiced annually in advance.

Geographical areas reported are Finland, the rest of Europe (including Russia and Turkey), and the rest of the world. Net sales are reported according to the customer´s location.

 

REVIEW BY THE CEO

The business environment remained challenging and economic growth was weak in most markets. This was the case especially in the Company’s largest market area, Europe (including Finland).

The Company’s consulting and software net sales decreased compared to the corresponding period last year. Consulting net sales were negatively affected mainly by the decrease in technical SAP consulting and a slow start in operational development consulting projects at the beginning of the year. Software net sales were negatively affected by the tightened competition in process and enterprise architecture modeling software, as well as performance management software.

In the challenging market conditions, we decided to streamline our operations and implemented EUR 0.7 million annual cost savings. This year, we expect these measures to result into approximately EUR 0.4 million in cost reductions after non-recurring items.

In 2015, we invested in recruiting and training new reseller partners; as well as in marketing and product launches in new markets. In process mining software, we expanded distribution especially into developed European markets, such as Germany, Sweden, Belgium and the Netherlands. For performance management and process modeling software, we recruited many new resellers from Middle East, Africa and South America.

We believe these investments will have a positive impact on net sales this year, but at the same time, we estimate that the tightened competition will continue to have a negative impact on sales in part of QPR´s reseller channel. We estimate that the operating profit excluding non-recurring items will grow in 2016, as compared to 2015.

Jari Jaakkola

CEO

SHORT-TERM RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES

Internal control and risk management at QPR Software 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 groups of risks related to its operations: risks related to business operations (country, customer, personnel, legal), risks related to information and products (QPR products, IPR, data security) and risks related to financing (foreign currency, short-term cash flow). The Company has an insurance policy for property, operational and liability risks.

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. In the reporting period, EUR 4 thousand (22) of credit losses were recorded. The amount of trade receivables over 60 days past due was 13% (6) of total trade receivables at the end of the quarter.

Approximately 71% of Group’s trade receivables were in Euro at the end of the quarter (66). At the end of the quarter, the Company had not hedged its non-euro trade receivables.

No significant changes have taken place in the Company’s short-term risks and uncertainties during the quarter. Risks and risk management related to the Company’s business are further described in the Annual Report 2015, pages 14-15 (http://cdn.qpr.com/sites/default/files/QPR_Software_Annual_Report_2015_1.pdf).
