YIT publishes pro forma financial information for 2016 and 2017

YIT Corporation Stock Exchange Release April 4, 2018 at 3:00 p.m.

YIT publishes pro forma financial information for 2016, 2017 and for each quarter of 2017. YIT has prepared the following unaudited pro forma financial information to illustrate the effects of the merger of YIT and Lemminkäinen to its results of operations and financial position and to facilitate the comparability of the combined company’s financial information. Pro forma financial information includes key figures, income statement and balance sheet as well as notes to pro forma financial information that explains the basis of presentation and segment information.

The merger of YIT and Lemminkäinen was completed on February 1, 2018, creating the largest construction company in Finland and a major player in Northern Europe. The combined company’s pro forma revenue was EUR 3,862.5 million and adjusted pro forma operating profit was EUR 138.9 million in 2017.

The unaudited pro forma financial information is based on the historical financial information of YIT and Lemminkäinen presented in accordance with IFRS adjusted for the impact of the merger. This unaudited pro forma financial information assumes the new segment reporting structure and the reporting practices adopted by YIT at the effective date of the merger.

Residential sales

YIT reports residential sales in units by market areas for Finland, CEE countries and Russia. The sold apartments have been divided by sales from projects initially started to consumers and projects started to investors. Sales from projects initially started to consumers comprise also sales from projects initially started to consumers with separate units sold to institutional investors. The number sales of these units have also been reported separately. Sales from projects started to investors comprise sales of whole projects to housing funds or other institutional players. YIT does not report the number of apartments from residential contracting. The presented residential sales figures are based on historical figures reported by YIT and Lemminkäinen and they are not a part of pro forma financial figures.

In the CEE countries, YIT improves its capital efficiency by selling residential projects to YCE Housing I fund. The projects sold to the fund, which was established during the last quarter of 2016, have been reported as investor sales. YIT acts as an estate agent for the fund and sells the apartments from the projects owned by the fund to consumers.

The reporting practices of the merged companies and especially the grouping into consumer and investor sales have been harmonised as a part of the unification of reporting. The principles used earlier have differed somewhat from each other and therefore the consumer sales of the first quarter 2017 differ slightly from the information published in the Investor news, March 16, 2018. The specified apartment sales figures for the first quarter will be published in connection with the first quarter 2018.

Partnership properties segment
was established on January 1, 2018. The income for the segment derives from investments, i.e. from rental income (cash flow from rents) and increased value of the assets. Additionally, the segment will potentially have revenue from different service agreements related to managing or sourcing the assets it partially owns. Until the beginning of 2018, the income has been close to zero from the assets transferred under this segment. The adjusted operating profit amounted to EUR -0.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2017.

The objective of the segment is to improve visibility on the reporting of partnership projects, improve the capability of executing large projects together with partners and to enable the creation of a project portfolio of rental cash flow. In the long run, YIT’s aim is to continue its practice of divesting its holdings to final investors at the time it sees fit.
