TIE Kinetix, the leading provider of Software as a Service managed solutions for Integration, Analytics, Demand Generation and E-Commerce today released interim results for the first half year of its fiscal year 2018, covering the period October 1, 2017 – March 31, 2018. 

HY1 2018 performance includes the positive outcome of an out-of-court settlement with Plusserver AG. This settlement provided a positive effect on EBITDA of € 336k and included compensation for damages and costs incurred. An amount of € 136k is reported as credit to Cost of Sales and an amount of € 200k has been booked as credit under Operating Expenses. 

In the first half year of 2018 several landmark new customers were implemented, such as Parker Hannifin and City of Rotterdam. Yet the implementation of other sizable new customers (Chanel, City of Amsterdam) was delayed. These customers are expected to go life in the next months. The company achieved new customer wins in its FLOW offering in the Business-to-government offerings with the city of Haarlem and the Ministry of Justice in the Netherlands. The pipeline of the Business-to-Government (BtG) proposition in the Netherlands looks promising. In HY1 2018, customer implementations and Order Intake of the FLOW offering of Google Ads-for-Channel stayed behind plan. Also, the FLOW offering of Google Analytics 360 came in behind plan. Overall, the company reports flat FLOW sales against HY1 2017 with higher gross margins due to sales mix differences (lower than planned low margin third party products). In view of finalization of pending implementations, particularly in the US, FLOW sales may be expected to increase in HY2. 

TIE closed H1 2018 with revenue amounting to € 8.803k, and EBITDA of € 403k (4,6%). 

Jan Sundelin (CEO) said: “bringing our FLOW proposition to the market paints a mixed picture of success. One the one hand we see that the rich functionality of our e-invoicing proposition convinces more and more Dutch municipalities to choose for our solution. TIE has captured a stronghold position in the BtG market with subscription revenue generating customers. At the same time, we are experiencing commercial headwind in bringing our Analytics and Google Ads-for-Channel products to market. Even though the Google Ads for the Channel pipeline is filling up, new customers seem weary to sign up for these products in the scale that we projected. Also, the number of new customers signing up for the Google 360 Analytics proposition is below plan. The market for the Google Analytics suite of products is still immature and needs to be further developed. In the second half year we expect to sign up more Analytics and Google Ads for the Channel customers. However, in the second half year our top line revenue and operational performance will be impacted as the company brings down services for two sizable non FLOW customers (T-Mobile and Orsay) upon expiration of their contracts. Total monthly revenue of these two contracts amounts to approximately € 150k which cannot be offset against new customer implementations at this stage.”
