Gemalto First Half 2006 Results

Amsterdam (ots/PRNewswire) - - Revenue[1] Up 2% at Constant Exchange Rates (-1% at Current Exchange Rates) - Operating Margin1 at 3.7%, Reflecting Fierce Competition in Mobile Communication - Cash and Cash Equivalents at USD 478 Million - Continuing Challenging Industry Environment - Synergies and Long-Term Objectives Confirmed Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 - GTO), a leader in digital security, today announced its results for the half year ended June 30, 2006. Highlights of the adjusted pro forma income statement1 (all figures below are at current exchange rates): In millions of USD H1 2005 H1 2006 Year-on-year change Net sales 1,047.0 1,035.9 -1.1% Gross profit 342.2 313.7 -8.3% Gross margin (%) 32.7% 30.3% -2.4 ppts Operating expenses 266.1 275.0 +3.4% Operating income 76.1 38.7 -49.1% Operating margin (%) 7.3% 3.7% -3.6 ppts Profit for the period 65.3 34.4 -47.3% Basic earnings per share (USD) 0.67 0.27 -59.5% The above mentioned adjusted measures exclude business combination accounting entries, and one-off expenses incurred in connection with the combination with Gemplus (Nasdaq: GEMP). Gemalto believes these measures are helpful in understanding its past financial performance and its future results. Adjusted financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable IFRS measures, and should be read only in conjunction with the condensed consolidated interim financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS provided in appendix. Olivier Piou, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "I would like to thank our shareholders for the outstanding success of the public exchange offer: it demonstrates their endorsement of our vision to create a global leader in digital security. The integration is progressing smoothly and Gemalto is fully focused on capturing growth opportunities and on realizing the planned synergies that will both materialize progressively. Our work since execution of the combination allows us to confirm the synergies and long term financial objectives previously outlined. Since the beginning of this year competitive pressure has been intense. We expect that our market environment will remain challenging in the coming months and we are adjusting to these demanding circumstances. Yet, the simultaneous global spread of communications systems, mobile personal devices, and the internet, all requiring higher levels of security, plays well for fully realizing our digital security vision." The Company's condensed consolidated interim financial statements (unaudited) are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS). The pro forma income statement for the first half 2006 has been prepared assuming that the combination with Gemplus had taken place as of January 1, 2005, allowing the Group to present it in comparison with the first half of 2005. The one-off, combination related items are therefore charged to the first half 2005 pro forma income statement, so that the first half 2006 income statement only reflects the recurring intangible asset amortization charges resulting from the accounting treatment of the transaction, as well as the additional stock compensation charge arising from it. Additional financial information on an adjusted pro forma basis is presented that is not in conformity with IFRS, in particular the presentation of cost of sales, operating expenses and operating income, operating margin and earnings per share which exclude charges arising from the accounting treatment of the combination and one-off combination related expenses. Charges resulting from the accounting treatment of the transaction consist of amortization of inventory step-up, additional stock-based compensation due to the revaluation of Gemplus' stock options as of combination date, amortization and impairment of intangible assets. One-off combination related expenses consist of professional advisory services incurred in connection with the integration, new Gemalto brand and logo creation and worldwide registration, as well as impairment charges related to capitalized development costs on projects which are redundant with existing products or technologies available in Gemplus. The Company believes that this information, which is not in conformity with IFRS, is helpful supplemental information in order to better understand its past and future performance. In addition, the Company's management uses this information in its own planning. This information provided by the Company may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. The Company provides reconciliation between pro forma and adjusted pro forma income statements which is displayed in tables at the end of this press release. The IFRS consolidated income statement for the first half 2006 shows operating loss of USD 9.7 million and net loss of USD 6.4 million, and the pro forma income statement shows operating income of USD 11.8 million and profit for the period of USD 13.4 million. For a more detailed description of adjustments made to the IFRS consolidated income statement, please refer to EXPLANATION OF ADJUSTED AND PRO FORMA MEASURES at the end of this press release. All comparisons in this document are at current exchange rates, unless stated otherwise, and describe the evolution of the adjusted pro forma first half 2006 information compared to that of the first half 2005. As of the third quarter 2006, the Company will adopt the euro as its reporting currency. As of the first quarter 2007, the Company will report full financial results on a quarterly basis. Adjusted pro forma income statement2 analysis Extract of the adjusted pro forma income statement[2]: Six months ended June 30, Six months ended June 30, 2005 2006 USD millions As a % of USD millions As a % of % change sales sales Revenue[3] 1,047.0 1,035.9 -1.1% Gross 342.2 32.7% 313.7 30.3% -8.3% profit EBITDA[4] 125.1 11.9% 86.8 8.4% -30.6% Operating 266.1 25.4% 275.0 26.6% +3.4% expenses Operating 76.1 7.3% 38.7 3.7% -49.1% income Profit for 65.3 6.2% 34.4 3.3% -47.3% the period At constant exchange rates, revenue was up 2%, reflecting varying performance between market segments. Solid revenue growth in Identity & Security and Secure Transactions was fully offset by the effect of strong price pressure on Mobile Communication revenue. After adjusting for the acquisition of Setec and currency fluctuations, revenue was down 2 %. On a geographic basis, revenue was up 3% in Asia, driven by Identity & Security and Secure Transactions. In EMEA[5], revenue was almost stable, while in the Americas revenue was down 6%. Microprocessor card shipments grew 39% to 561 million units, sustained by strong demand in all core segments. Gross margin was 30.3% compared to 32.7% a year ago, due to the lower performance in Mobile Communication. Overall, operating expenses were up 3.4% including Setec. Research & engineering and general & administrative expenses were stable, while sales & marketing expenses were up 5.6%, due to increased field marketing and customer support resources in the regions. Consequently, operating income was USD 38.7 million and operating margin was 3.7%. Financial income was USD 7.0 million. The effective tax rate for the period was 25%. As a result, profit for the period was USD 34.4 million. Balance sheet and pro forma cash flow Pro forma free cash flow[6] of the period was an outflow USD 90 million. Capital expenditure amounted to USD 50 million and USD 100 million were used by an increase in working capital requirement. Payments of costs incurred in connection with the preparation and execution of the combination amounted to approximately USD 14 million. After the distribution of reserves (USD 212 million) to the Gemplus shareholders prior to the execution of the first step of the combination (EUR 0.26 per share), cash and cash equivalents remain strong at USD 478 million as of June 30, 2006. Segment information[7] Mobile Communication performance impacted by strong price pressure Six months ended June 30, Six months ended June 30, 2005 2006 USD millions As a % of USD millions As a % of % change revenue revenue Revenue 672.8 600.8 -10.7% Gross 259.7 38.6% 200.4 33.3% -22.8% profit Operating 164.7 24.5% 162.4 27.0% -1.4% expenses Operating 95.0 14.1% 38.0 6.3% -60.0% income At constant exchange rates, Mobile Communication revenue was down 9%: the strong volume growth was not sufficient to fully compensate for extreme price pressure. SIM cards shipments for the first half 2006 were up 38% to 430 million units, driven by strong demand in Asia and in EMEA. Shipments in the Americas show limited growth compared with a strong first half 2005. The average SIM card selling price for the first half 2006 was down 35% compared to the first half 2005, reflecting the intensified competitive environment this year. In the first half 2006, the market was characterized by very strong volume growth in emerging countries which use a higher proportion of low-end cards, and by delays in migration to high-end products in other countries. The average SIM card selling price for the second quarter 2006 was down 1% at current exchange rates, compared with the first quarter 2006. Compared with the strong performance of the first half 2005, gross margin decreased, reflecting the intensified competitive environment since the beginning of the year. Secure Transactions (Financial Services and pay-TV) Six months ended June 30, Six months ended June 30, 2005 2006 USD millions As a % of USD millions As a % of % revenue revenue change Revenue[8] 213.9 234.4 +9.6% Gross 45.4 21.2% 47.7 20.4% +5.1% profit Operating 46.4 21.7% 52.6 22.5% +13.4% expenses Operating (1.0) -0.5% (4.9) -2.1% NM income At constant exchange rates, revenue was up 14%. After adjusting for the acquisition of Setec and currency fluctuations, revenue was up 9%. Microprocessor card shipments for the first half 2006 were up 37% to 109 million units, driven by on-going EMV[9] deployment, particularly in Turkey, Latin America, North Asia and Southern Europe. Average selling prices decreased reflecting price pressure in certain markets, as well as a change in the regional mix and a greater share of modules in the total volume sold. ID & Security Six months ended June 30, Six months ended June 30, 2005 2006 USD millions As a % of USD millions As a % of % change revenue revenue Revenue[8] 77.0 130.3 +69.2% Gross 26.4 34.3% 55.4 42.5% +109.8% profit Operating 41.3 53.6% 47.9 36.8% +16.0% expenses Operating (14.9) -19.3% 7.5 5.7% NM income At constant exchange rates, revenue was up 73%, driven by strong sales of microprocessor card solutions for e-passports, healthcare and transportation management, as well as by increased IP licensing activity. After adjusting for the acquisition of Setec and currency fluctuations, revenue was up 44%. Microprocessor cards shipments for the first half 2006 were up 58% to 22 million units, fuelled by initial deployments of large scale e-passports programs in France and Portugal and by strong Transportation activity. During the first half 2006, the Group won several meaningful and highly visible contracts for e-passport projects in France, the Czech Republic, Portugal and Slovenia, and healthcare management in France and Mexico. Gross margin was up 8.2 percentage points compared with a strong first half 2005, reflecting high revenue derived from patent licensing contracts: these are fully offsetting lower margin in the ID business as the rollout of e-passports in Europe is still in its early stages. Public Telephony Six months ended June 30, Six months ended June 30, 2005 2006 USD millions As a % of USD millions As a % of % change revenue revenue Revenue 44.7 40.1 -10.3% Gross 1.0 2.2% 2.5 6.3% +164.0% profit Operating 6.6 14.7% 4.3 10.8% -33.7% expenses Operating (5.6) -12.5% (1.8) -4.5% NM income Memory cards for Public Telephony now contribute for less than 4% of Group revenue. Point-of-Sale Terminals Six months ended June 30, Six months ended June 30, 2005 2006 USD millions As a % of USD millions As a % of % change sales sales Revenue 38.6 30.2 -21.6% Gross 9.7 25.2% 7.7 25.5% -20.6% profit Operating 7.1 18.5% 7.8 25.8% +9.2% expenses Operating 2.6 6.7% (0.1) -0.3% NM income The activity in this segment reflects a transition period in advance of the introduction of a new range of products later this year. Outlook Market conditions have been difficult since the beginning of this year, and the Company expects it will remain challenging, particularly in light of the uncertainties in the global economic environment. With synergies from the combination materializing progressively, in line with plans, and the significant resources required this year to converge product roadmaps and processes, Gemalto expects operating performance in the second half 2006 to be similar to that of the first half. The deployment of the electronic passport and ID projects won in recent months will produce their full effect in 2007. The Group has taken cost reduction measures beyond the initially identified synergies, and continues to review the adequacy of its current configuration in light of these circumstances. On August 31, 2006, Gemalto announced consolidation of its two production centres in Owing Mills and Montgomeryville in the United States into the latter's facility, which better meets the future needs of its business strategy and customers. Given its technology and market leadership, Gemalto is uniquely positioned to address the increasing need for security in the digital world. The Company is confident in its ability to play a leading role in the digital security industry as it expands on a global scale and to realize its objective for 2009 of a low teens operating margin. GEMALTO FIRST HALF 2006 FINANCIAL RESULTS EXPLANATION OF ADJUSTED AND PRO FORMA MEASURES Due to the combination with Gemplus, Gemalto's financial statements have undergone significant change, due in particular to the accounting treatment of this transaction in accordance with IFRS 3 "Business Combination". To supplement the financial statements presented on an IFRS basis, the Group presents the pro forma and adjusted pro forma information described in the table below. Pro forma measures The pro forma income statement for the first half 2006 has been prepared assuming that the combination had taken place as of January 1, 2005, allowing the Group to present it in comparison with the first half 2005. The one-off, combination related items are therefore charged to the first half 2005 pro forma income statement, so that the first half 2006 income statement only reflects the recurring intangible asset amortization charge resulting from the Purchase Price Allocation and the additional stock-based compensation charge. Adjusted measures Adjusted measures exclude certain business combination accounting entries, and expenses directly incurred in connection with the combination with Gemplus, that the Group believes are helpful in understanding its past financial performance and its future results. Adjusted financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable IFRS measures, and should be read only in conjunction with condensed consolidated interim financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS. Management regularly uses these supplemental adjusted financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate the business and take operating decisions. These adjusted measures are among the primary factors management uses in planning for and forecasting future periods. Compensation of executives is based in part on the performance of the business based on these adjusted measures. Adjusted financial measures reflect adjustments based on the following items, as well as the related income tax effect: - Amortization of inventory step-up: IFRS 3 "Business Combination" requires Gemalto to value work-in progress and finished goods assumed in connection with the combination at net realizable value (the estimated revenue derived from the future sale of these goods less expected selling cost). Therefore, the value of this inventory in the books of Gemplus on combination date was adjusted accordingly (step-up). Thus, subsequent sales of the work-in-progress and finished products carried in Gemplus' inventory at the time of the combination generate a lower margin than if they were manufactured after the acquisition, all other factors being equal. The amortization expense related to this step up is therefore disclosed in the income statement under a separate line below Cost of Sales. The adjustment, eliminating amortization of inventory step-up, is intended to restore the normal margin of such sales. The Group believes this adjustment is useful to investors as a measure of the ongoing performance of its business. - Additional stock-based compensation charge: As prescribed by IFRS 2 "Share-based payment" and IFRS 3 "Business Combination", vested and unvested stock options or awards granted by an acquirer in exchange for stock options or awards held by employees of the purchased company, or any substantially equivalent commitment by the acquirer to assume the obligations of the acquirer with regards to stock options granted to the latter's employees, as is the case for Gemalto under the Combination Agreement, shall be considered to be part of the purchase price for the acquirer, and the fair value (at the effective date of the acquisition or merger) of the new (acquirer) awards shall be included in the purchase price. It leads to increase the compensation charge related to stock-options granted by Gemplus prior to the acquisition. The adjustment, eliminating the additional stock-based compensation charge, is intended to reflect the compensation charge that Gemplus would expense if the company continued to operate on a standalone basis. The Group believes this adjustment is useful to investors as a measure of the ongoing performance of its business. - Amortization and impairment of intangible assets: amortization and impairment of intangible assets created as a result of the combination with Gemplus have been excluded from the adjusted profit for the period. The Group believes this is useful because, prior to this combination in the second quarter of fiscal 2006, it did not incur significant charges of this nature, and the exclusion of this amount helps investors understand the evolution of IFRS operating expenses in periods subsequent to the combination with Gemplus. Investors should note that the use of intangible assets contributed to revenue earned during the period and will contribute to future revenue generation and that these amortization expenses will be recurring. - Combination related charges: In the last months, Gemalto incurred material expenses in connection with the combination with Gemplus, which it would not have otherwise incurred. Combination related charges consist of professional advisory services incurred in connection with the integration, new Gemalto brand and logo creation and worldwide registration, as well as impairment charges related to capitalized development costs on projects which are redundant with existing products or technologies available in Gemplus. The Group expects to continue to incur integration-related professional services in the coming months. Gemalto also determined that its investment in a listed company was impaired as a consequence of the combination with Gemplus. The related impairment charge was recorded in Financial income (loss) in the period. Gemalto believes it is useful for investors to understand the effect of these expenses on its cost structure.
