COR&FJA publishes financial data for the first half of 2012

Turnover is on target, result falls short of expectations / Budget figures for 2012 recently revised down

(PresseBox) ( Leinfelden-Echterdingen, )
COR&FJA AG looks back on the first six months of 2012, a difficult half-year overall. Following a generally satisfactory first quarter, it was the earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA), in particular, which - at -1.9 million euros as at 30 June 2012 - fell far short of the budget (30 June 2011: -1.0 million euros). Overall, COR&FJA generated a consolidated result of -3.5 million euros as at 30 June 2012 (same period last year: -3.0 million euros), while earnings per share amounted to -0.08 euros (same period last year: -0.07 euros).

Turnover, by contrast, was in line with expectations, totalling 68.0 million euros as at 30 June 2012 (30 June 2011: 59.8 million euros). At 72.3 per cent, the proportion of aggregate income as at 30 June 2012 generated by fixed-price orders and services charged on a time and material basis was 4.3 percentage points higher than in the previous year. By contrast, licence income decreased by approximately 0.4 percentage points to 6.6 per cent of aggregate turnover. Maintenance turnover fell by 3.3 percentage points to 18.7 per cent. Income from merchandise and computing centre services also fell, shedding 0.5 percentage points and contributing 2.5 per cent to aggregate turnover.

Just a few days ago, COR&FJA AG reduced its turnover and earnings forecast for the current 2012 financial year: instead of 145.0 million euros as previously planned, aggregate turnover in 2012 is expected to be between 138.0 and 143.0 million euros, while earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA), previously budgeted at 9.0 million euros, have now been reduced to a bandwidth of between 3.5 and 6.0 million euros.

This adjustment in turnover and earnings was necessitated by two factors in particular: for one thing, at the moment it is not yet foreseeable when a planned large-scale project in the Banking division, which was due to be launched in the first half of 2012, is actually going to be realised, and for another, an ongoing major project in the Insurance division is involving considerably greater expense than the plans for the 2012 financial year had foreseen. The direct financial effects of the aforementioned factors on the current financial year cannot be offset entirely by the highly successful Life Insurance segment. Basically, the pleasingly stable business generated with COR&FJA's existing customers is leading to numerous follow- up orders that are partly compensating for the current sluggish state of new business.

As a result of these developments, COR&FJA is expecting to see a positive turnover and earnings trend over the next few years.
