DGAP-News: ecotel communication ag / Key word(s): Quarter Results ecotel communication ag: Q1 2015 figures confirm positive trend: 15.05.2015 / 07:45 --------------------------------------------------------------------- - Q1 revenue of EUR 26.0 million and EBITDA of EUR 2.7 million - Q1 profit per share increased to EUR 0.22 due to positive one-time effect - New Business: Turnaround at nacamar - easybell on growth course - Net debt reduced by EUR 1.5 million to EUR 0.0 million Düsseldorf, 15 May 2015 ecotel communication ag, a German telecommunications company with operations throughout Germany and headquarters in Düsseldorf, was able to continue the positive business development of the past years in 2015. With consolidated turnover of EUR 26.0 million (previous year: EUR 26.2 million) especially the earnings performance was boosted. In addition to increasing the gross profit to EUR 6.9 million (previous year: EUR 6.6 million), the company was able, as a result of a positive one-time effect, to increase both EBITDA to EUR 2.7 million (previous year: EUR 1.7 million) and EBIT to EUR 1.5 million (previous year: EUR 0.7 million). This results in consolidated profit for the first quarter 2015 of EUR 0.8 million (previous year: EUR 0.3 million), which corresponds to earnings per share of EUR 0.22 (previous year: EUR 0.07). The focus remains on revenue in the Business Customers segment, in which ecotel bundles transactions with SMEs and key accounts. As a flexible mid-sized enterprise ecotel offers combined voice and data services in this segment. The continuously growing customer base, currently with around 18,000 customers in Business Solutions (B2B), includes companies such as Allianz, CTS EVENTIM and ING-DiBa. A positive development was also observed in the New Business segment. In this segment ecotel combines Private Customer Solutions (B2C) under the »easybell« brand and new media solutions under the »nacamar« brand. With a 15 percent increase in revenue and a share of 25 percent in the total gross profit, this segment is increasing in importance. In the Wholesale Solutions segment, which is targeted at other telecommunications providers and outside distributors, high revenue was attained in the first months of the year, although with regular fluctuations. However, the strategically important segment shows only a relatively low gross margin. Other positive developments were observed in the first quarter 2015 with respect to the liquidity, net debt, equity ratio and free cash flow. With liquidity of EUR 6.3 million as of 31/03/2015 (EUR 5.0 million as of 31/12/2014) ecotel was able to reduce the net debt by EUR 1.5 million to EUR 0.0 million. The equity ratio improved in the reporting period from 47.1 % as of 31/12/2014 to 48.9 % as of 31/03/2015. In the first quarter 2015 the company achieved a free cash flow totalling EUR 1.6 million, which corresponds to the amount of EUR 0.46 per share. "We are very satisfied with the business development in the first quarter 2015. The sustained positive trend continues and we expect this to remain so for the entire year 2015," explains Peter Zils, CEO and founder of ecotel. "Especially important for us is the development of the high-margin core business with B2B solutions for business customers, since this central controlling factor is essential for our profit and growth goals. At the same time we were able to continue the positive development of our fast-growing New Business segment. In addition to good growth rates at easybell we achieved the turnaround at our subsidiary nacamar and can again report positive EBITDA for the first time since 2013." In the future the telecommunications company intends to develop new markets for Cloud, Security and IP-Centrex services. ecotel was already able to essentially implement the technical prerequisites and the relating investments for this in 2014. As a result of the change in technology being pushed by the Deutsche Telekom and the impending migration from ISDN to All-IP access, ecotel will start this summer with the marketing of managed voice and data services on the basis of the new All-IP connections. In combination with operation of the local exchange, All-IP will in turn form the basis for the marketing of such services. With additional well-directed investments in technologies and personnel ecotel is well positioned here and can take advantage of the comfortable liquidity situation to develop these business units, for example. The company confirms the forecast published in the 2014 Annual Report and continues to expect EBITDA of EUR 7.5 - 8.5 million for the current business year 2015, with revenue of EUR 90 - 100 million.
