OLLI POHJANVIRTA, PRESIDENT AND CEO:

“The weak market situation continued in the first quarter of 2015. Declining Finnish exports and imports and the unstable development of the Russian economy in the first quarter had a negative impact on the company’s result and net sales, particularly in the railway and project businesses.

The Forwarding and Value Added Services business unit, however, achieved a year-on-year increase in net sales and the result remained unchanged. The unit secured new clients in the first quarter that provide stability to the outlook for the rest of the year with regard to business operations in Finland. In the Special Transports and Projects business unit, the special transport business continued at a moderate level, while the project market remained at a very subdued level as in the previous year. In Railway Logistics, Finnish export volumes and prices declined to a level even lower than that of late 2014, and the profitability of domestic railway traffic in Russia was eroded by the weak rouble and intense price competition, while volumes remained at a moderate level. A positive aspect is that, in spite of the weak market situation, we did not lose any customers during the review period. We have also successfully reduced our fixed costs by 15 per cent and will continue to actively improve the efficiency of the cost structure and pursue the renewal of the railway logistics business. The company has announced plans to enhance the efficiency of its wagon fleet in Russia and improve return on capital by selling part of its wagons,” says Olli Pohjanvirta, President and CEO.

MARKET SITUATION IN THE REVIEW PERIOD

In Railway Logistics, the market situation in cross-border traffic between Finland and Russia weakened significantly year-on-year and declined further from the low level seen at the end of 2014. The market situation in the Russian internal railway market remained stable, and intense price competition continued. Starting from the end of March, volumes picked up in accordance with normal seasonal variation.

The uncertainty in the world economy and the tightening of financial markets were reflected in demand particularly in project transport. The rouble depreciated significantly in 2014, which led to end clients in Russia postponing their investments. The uncertainty in the world economy and the weak rouble had a lesser impact on special transport, but demand remained subdued in that sector as well. Competition remained intense and price levels in the market fluctuated considerably.

In the market for forwarding and value added services, volumes in the pulp, paper and forest industry decreased, while those of the engineering and metal industries fluctuated substantially during the review period. Market demand for transit logistics to Russia through Finland was weaker than in the comparison period, and price competition was tight. Demand on routes between the Baltic countries and Russia remained almost unchanged from the previous year. Demand for services at the Vuosaari terminal improved, while the Hamina and Luumäki terminals saw weaker demand than in the corresponding period last year. Demand for chemicals logistics at the Kotka terminal was substantially higher than in the comparison period.

NET SALES AND FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE 1 JANUARY – 31 MARCH 2015

The net sales for the review period amounted to EUR 11.0 million (2014: EUR 14.1 million), which represents a decrease of 22.3% compared to 2014. The reported operating result was EUR -1,435 (24) thousand. The operating result includes non-recurring items of EUR 0 (-174) thousand. The comparative operating result was therefore EUR -1,435 thousand (198). The operating result for the financial period was weakened by exchange rate losses on the valuation of rouble-denominated intercompany trade payables resulting from the depreciation of the rouble. This had a total effect of EUR 0.7 million on the result, with no cash flow impact.

The appreciation of the Russian rouble during the review period increased the company’s financial result by EUR 0.4 million. This exchange rate profit had no cash flow impact.

Railway Logistics

The Railway Logistics business unit’s net sales for the review period amounted to EUR 2,966 (2014: 5,541) thousand and the operating result was EUR -806 (696) thousand. The operating result includes non-recurring items of EUR 0 (-85) thousand. The comparative operating result was therefore EUR -806 (781) thousand. The operating result includes exchange rate losses on the intercompany purchase invoice of EUR 0.7 million. The net sales and operating result of Railway Logistics declined significally during the first quarter compared to the corresponding period in the previous year due to a significant decrease in transport volumes in traffic between Finland and Russia and a weak rouble.

Special Transports and Projects

The Special Transports and Projects business unit’s net sales for the review period amounted to EUR 1,572 (2,214) thousand and the operating result was EUR 67 (50) thousand. The operating result includes non-recurring items of EUR 0 (0) thousand. The comparative operating result was therefore EUR 67 (50) thousand. The business unit’s net sales declined substantially, particularly due to a decrease in volumes in project transport. However, the operating result improved due to changes in the distribution of products and efficiency improvement measures in production operations.

Forwarding and Value Added Services

The net sales of the Forwarding and Value Added Services business unit for the review period amounted to EUR 6,574 (6,482) thousand and the operating result was EUR -696 (-723) thousand. The operating result includes non-recurring items of EUR 0 (-89) thousand. The comparative operating result was therefore EUR -696 (-634) thousand. The business unit increased its sales over the course of the review period. The business unit’s net sales increased and operating result remained largely unchanged from the comparison period. The break-bulk cargo business at the Vuosaari terminal was at a higher level than in the comparison period, while pulp, paper and forest industry volumes at the Vuosaari terminal remained unchanged. Demand for services at the Hamina and Luumäki terminals was weaker than in the comparison period. The operational loss of the Vuosaari logistics centre was EUR -0.2 (-0.3) million in the review period. The high rental level of the Vuosaari logistics centre has a significant negative effect on the otherwise good operating result.

OUTLOOK

Nurminen Logistics expects market conditions to remain similar to the end of last year. A slight increase in Finnish exports appears possible, particularly through the port of Vuosaari, while a decrease in imports also seems likely. Under the prevailing circumstances, Finnish exports to Russia in 2015 are likely to remain at the same level as in the fourth quarter of 2014, with Russian domestic traffic remaining at the same level as in 2014. Changes in the rouble exchange rate have a significant impact on the company’s profitability.

In the present situation, the forecast horizon is short. Nurminen Logistics expects its net sales, operating result and earnings per share to decline from the level of 2014. If the company’s plan to sell its railway wagons will realize, it will have a strong positive effect on operating result. Forecasting operating result include significant factors of uncertainty due to the development of rouble exchange rate in the beginning of the year and its outlook on the rest of the year.

The company’s long-term goal is to grow at a faster rate than the market, on average by over 15% per year. Going forward, over 50% of net sales will come from the growth markets of Russia and its neighbouring countries. The companys further long-term goals are to improve profitability, achieve an operating profit level of 10 per cent and return on equity of 20 per cent.

SHORT-TERM RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES

The continuation of economic sanctions related to the Ukrainian crisis and the continued decline of the price of oil in 2015 would have a strong impact on Russia’s economic development, which in turn would negatively affect the company’s railway transport and project logistics volumes, and have a negative impact on the company’s outlook. The significant depreciation of the Russian rouble would worsen the company’s cash flow situation and complicate financing.

The company has received a total of 32 subsequent levy decisions from the National Board of Customs’ Eastern District Office in Lappeenranta, which state that the company and VG Cargo Plc, which has filed for bankruptcy, are liable to pay import taxes from the year 2009. The company’s liability for the import taxes is, at a maximum, EUR 0.5 million. The company does not consider itself liable for the aforementioned import taxes and has not recorded provisions for the associated costs. If there is a case for subsequent levy, the company’s view is that the levy should primarily be directed at the bankruptcy estate of VG Cargo Plc and be paid from its valid customs guarantee. The company has filed an appeal with the Helsinki District Court against the subsequent levy decisions made by the National Board of Customs.

FINANCIAL POSITION AND BALANCE SHEET

The company’s cash flow from operations was EUR 524 thousand. Cash flow from investments was EUR -43 thousand. Cash flow from financing activities amounted to EUR -721 thousand.

At the end of the review period, cash and cash equivalents amounted to EUR 1,318 thousand. The company’s financial position has tightened further, and the Group has initiated measures to improve its financial position.

On 27 February 2015, Nurminen Logistics signed a 12-month financing agreement relating to its continuing business operations with its financing banks. The financing agreement includes covenants that are assessed on a quarterly basis.

The covenants of the Group’s loans from financial institutions, namely the ratio of net debt to operating margin and the equity ratio, were breached as of the interim report date of 31 March 2015. The Group has received a commitment from its creditors confirming that the breach of the covenants will not have any consequences on the Group.

The Group’s interest-bearing debt totalled EUR 21.5 million, while net interest-bearing debt amounted to EUR 20.2 million.

The balance sheet total was EUR 48.2 million and the equity ratio was 22.4%.
