HANZA presents interim report January-March

Publish date: 2015-04-28

HANZA, listed on First North Premier, today announces April 28 its interim report for the first three months. The company reports an improvement in the market and that the company's factory mergers have been implemented according to plan. The result has improved, but is still not satisfactory. The Board estimates that a capitalization plan for the Company, as announced in the annual report can be presented in the second quarter 2015th 

First quarter (1 January to 31 March 2015)

  • ​Net sales amounted to 266.0 million, a significant increase over the fourth quarter of 2014 (237.8), and an increase compared to Q1 last year (250.5)
  • EBIT  from the business areas amounted to SEK -2.7 million (5.4). EBIT for the group amounted to SEK -4.6 million (0.2). EBIT for the group  includes costs for business development with -1.9 million (-5.2)
  • Profit after tax amounted to SEK -7.6 million (-4.0)
  • Earnings per share amounted to SEK -1.05 (-0.63)
  • Cash flow from operations amounted to SEK -15.3 million (11.1). Increase in sales and inventory build-up caused by a rapidly increasing backlog had a negative impact of cash flow.

Erik Stenfors, CEO HANZA, comments the report:

"HANZAs results are not yet satisfactory. Efficiency improvements performed impacted the quarter positively, while the cost of factory mergers negatively. In total the operating income improved by over 8 million SEK compared to the previous quarter. We foresee a continued improvement in earnings in the second quarter and will take further measures to increase profitability."

"We have, in the last interim reports, reported that the company needs capital  for the continued development and the Board is actively working with a capitalization".

"Market-wise, we are on the way to establish HANZA as a modern alternative to traditional contract manufacturers. Today we have a record order backlog and predict that our sales success will continue in 2015 with our new product, MIG TM ”
