TIE Kinetix: Very Strong First Half Year 2020 

Table 1: First Half Year Results (Period Oct. 1, 2019 - March 31, 2020)

Table 2: First Half Year Segment Reporting*:

* Segment reporting is excluding the current year effects of IFRS 15.

TIE Kinetix delivered a very strong first half year 2020. Both revenue as well as EBITDA came in significantly higher than 2019 numbers. In the Netherlands, the US and France strong order intake in FY 2019 has provided many new projects in FY 2020, driving both Consultancy revenue (+16%) and SaaS revenue (+22%) to higher levels. With flat operating costs, a significantly higher EBITDA was achieved (+486%). 

Revenue and margin increase in the first half year of FY 2020 are on plan and in line with the company strategy to convert customers to the FLOW platform SaaS offering. The company strategy is based on the ‘Hub-Spokes’ model and focusses on selling at enterprise level accounts (so-called ’Hubs’), to connect their medium sized suppliers (the ’Spokes’). 

TIE Kinetix reports H1 2020 with revenue (incl IFRS 15 adjustments) amounting to € 8.686k (2019: €7.338k), and EBITDA (incl. IFRS 15 adjustments) of € 1.167k (2019: € -7k), generating a 13% EBITDA margin (2019: 0%). Net income grew from €- 772k (HY1 FY 2019) to € 375k (HY1 FY 2020). 

Jan Sundelin (CEO) said: “The turnaround towards selling FLOW SaaS that we have completed in 2019 is now materializing in top line growth and higher margins. Our focus on FLOW SaaS and 100% digitization – a topic that is top of mind with most companies and governments in these days – is paying off. The order intake generated in 2019 was high and provided a very strong base to generate healthy business. We have welcomed many new customers to our FLOW offering and at the same time we saw a solid demand for the latest version of our SaaS offerings from our existing customers. In the first half year of FY 2020, our Google-Ad-Words-for-Channel business has grown very profitably and continues to perform well. The Covid-19 measures in the various countries in which we operate have not affected our HY 1 numbers, but we do expect some effects in HY 2, FY 2020. Although our SaaS business model has proven to be robust in volatile economic conditions, we expect that certain of our customers will be hurt significantly by the COVID-19 measures and that this will affect their ability to commit earlier planned investments. We are also planning for customers wanting to extend payment terms. However, our cash position is robust and our strong HY1 performance provides a good foundation to encounter such issues in the second half year. We have temporarily paused planned investments in growth, and plan to go forward with these investments this summer, provided the economic conditions do not deteriorate significantly.”
