YIT’s financial statement bulletin for 2005: STRONG EARNINGS GROWTH STILL ON TRACK


In 2005, YIT’s revenue and profit before taxes rose to record levels. All the business segments improved their operating profit and profitability. Building Systems focused on improving profitability. The business segment’s operating profit rose to a satisfactory 4.1 per cent of revenue. Construction Services racked up excellent earnings in all business areas, with operating profit representing 11.0 per cent of revenue. Demand for residences in Finland remained solid and other construction activity was also brisk. Residential construction in Russia, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania was stepped up rapidly. Thanks to its high capacity utilization ratio and developed operations control, Industrial and Network Services posted a good result. The operating profit margin was 9.8. The Group’s outlook for 2006 is favourable.

Revenue grows by 9 per cent

In 2005, the YIT Group’s revenue saw organic growth of 9 per cent and was EUR 3,023.8 million (2004: EUR 2,780.1 million).

Of the revenue, 56 per cent (57%) came from Finland, 32 per cent (32%) from the other Nordic countries, 7 per cent (6%) from Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia and 4 per cent (3%) from Russia.

The share of revenue accounted for by the maintenance and servicing business increased to EUR 1,135.0 million (EUR 1,036.9 million), representing 38 per cent (37%) of total revenue.

Profit before taxes grows by 53 per cent

The Group’s operating profit amounted to EUR 227.7 million (EUR 157.4 million) and the operating profit margin was 7.5 per cent (5.7%). Profit before taxes was 53 per cent better than in the previous year, having risen to EUR 214.8 million (EUR 140.0 million). Return on investment was 26.4 per cent (19.1%).

Earnings per share increased by 56 per cent and amounted to EUR 2.52 (EUR 1.62). Equity per share rose to EUR 8.97 (EUR 7.20). The equity ratio was 36.3 per cent (31.0%). The financial position strengthened. The gearing ratio declined to 45.1 per cent (80.7%).

Proposed dividends: EUR 1.10

The Board of Directors will propose to the Annual General Meeting that a dividend of EUR 1.10 be paid per share (EUR 0.70) for the 2005 financial year, representing 43.7 per cent of earnings per share. YIT is now increasing the dividend for the eleventh year running.

Order backlog grows

The Group’s uninvoiced backlog of orders was 3 per cent higher at the end of 2005 than a year earlier, having risen to EUR 1,878.8 million (EUR 1,823.4 million). Due to their nature, part of the Group’s maintenance and servicing operations are not included in the order backlog.

Number of employees 21,300

In 2005, the Group employed 21,194 (21,884) people on average. At the end of the year, the Group had 21,289 employees (21,680). Of YIT’s employees, 52 per cent work in Finland, 37 per cent in the other Nordic countries and 7 per cent in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia and 4 per cent in Russia.

Market situation remains stable

Financial research institutions estimate that the national economies of the Nordic countries will develop at a stable rate of 2-3 per cent in 2006 and 2007, outpacing growth in the EU by about one percentage point. Russia and Norway benefit from the high price of oil. The rate of growth in the economies of Russia, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania is about twice as fast as in the Nordic countries. Euro interest rates are seeing moderate growth.
The positive trend in incomes and the improving employment situation bolster the confidence of households. The record-high population shift within Finland increases the need for residences, and housing sales remain brisk. Strong demand for housing in Russia makes it possible to expand residential construction over the long term, too. Growth in exports and industrial output increases the need for industrial investments and maintenance in the Nordic countries.

Outlook for 2006

We estimate that the pre-tax result for 2006 will be better than in the previous year.

STRONG EARNINGS GROWTH STILL ON TRACK

In 2005, YIT’s revenue and profit before taxes rose to record levels. All the business segments improved their operating profit and profitability. Building Systems focused on improving profitability. The business segment’s operating profit rose to a satisfactory 4.1 per cent of revenue.

YIT’S GROUP STRUCTURE

YIT’s business segment structure was firmed up on June 1, 2005, by merging Services for Industry and Data Network Services to form a single business segment: Industrial and Network Services. YIT’s business operations are now divided into three business segments: Building Systems, Construction Services and Industrial and Network Services.

The Industrial and Network Services business segment’s comparative figures for 2004 have been calculated by combining the financial figures of the Services for Industry and Data Network Services business segments.

IFRS STANDARDS

YIT changed over to IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) on January 1, 2005. The financial statement bulletin for 2005 is drafted in accordance with IFRS recognition and measurement policies. The comparative figures for 2004 presented in the bulletin are also in line with IFRS.

Of the revenue, 56 per cent (57%) came from Finland, 32 per cent (32%) from the other Nordic countries, 7 per cent (6%) from Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia and 4 per cent (3%) from Russia.

ORDER BACKLOG GROWS

The Group’s market position is strong. The uninvoiced backlog of orders was 3 per cent higher at the end of 2005 than a year earlier, having risen to EUR 1,878.8 million (EUR 1,823.4 million). The margin of the order backlog is good. Due to their nature, part of the Group’s maintenance and servicing operations are not included in the order backlog.

Order backlog by business segment (EUR million)

Dec/ Dec/ Change, % Share of 2005 2004 the Group’s order backlog Dec/2005 Building Systems 492.0 557.8 -12 26% Construction Services 1,242.6 1,066.4 17 66% Industrial and Network Services 173.3 199.2 -13 9% Other items -29.1 - - -1% YIT Group, total 1,878.8 1,823.4 3 100%

The order backlog rose in Construction Services due to the good demand for residences and especially the expansion of housing production in Russia and the Baltic countries. The decline in the order backlog of Building Systems was due to the more precise selection of projects in order to improve profitability and the focusing of operations on the maintenance and servicing business. The order backlog was down 13 per cent in Industrial and Network Services due to the lower volume forecasts received from network service customers and progress on the Diesel project at Neste Oil’s Porvoo refinery.

THE GROUP’S FINANCIAL POSITION STRENGTHENS

The Group’s financial position strengthened in 2005. Interest- bearing liabilities amounted to EUR 335.0 million (EUR 395.5 million) at the end of the period and liquid assets to EUR 80.6 million (EUR 36.1 million). Net debt was EUR 254.4 million (EUR 359.4 million). At the end of the review period, the gearing ratio was 45.1 per cent (80.7%).

Financial income during the period amounted to EUR 1.9 million (EUR 1.8 million), exchange rate gains to EUR 2.0 million (EUR –1.1 million) and financial expenses to EUR 16.8 million (EUR 18.1 million). Net financial expenses were EUR 12.9 million (EUR 17.4 million), or 0.4 per cent (0.6%) of revenue.

The proportion of fixed-interest loans in the Group’s entire loan portfolio was 49 per cent (52%). Loans raised directly on the capital and money markets represented 39 per cent (46%) of the loan portfolio.

The construction-stage contract receivables sold to financing companies totalled EUR 268.2 million (EUR 199.7 million) at the end of the period. Of this amount, EUR 109.4 million (EUR 101.6 million) is included in interest-bearing liabilities in the balance sheet and the remainder comprises off-balance sheet items as per IAS 39. The interest on sold receivables paid to financing companies, EUR 5.3 million (EUR 5.7 million), is included in financial expenses in its entirety.

Participations in the housing corporation loans of unsold completed residences, EUR 15.3 million (EUR 16.8 million), are also included in interest-bearing liabilities, but the interest on them is booked in project expenses, as said interest is included in housing corporation maintenance charges.

Interest-bearing liabilities included EUR 5.1 million in leasing commitments (EUR 10.2 million).

CAPITAL EXPENDITURES AND ACQUISITIONS

Gross capital expenditures on non-current assets included in the balance sheet totalled EUR 30.1 million (EUR 35.6 million) during the financial year, representing 1.0 per cent (1.3%) of revenue.

YIT’s property maintenance business in the Greater Helsinki Area was sold to Sol Palvelut Oy on September 1, 2005. By means of this transaction, YIT phased out the maintenance of the external areas of properties and building superintendent services. In the property services provided by YIT itself, the company will from now on focus on works related to the technical systems of properties.

MARKET SITUATION REMAINS GOOD IN NORTHERN EUROPE

The Nordic countries are still booming. Financial research institutions estimate that the national economies of the Nordic countries will develop at a stable rate of about 2.5-3 per cent in 2006-2008, outpacing growth in the EU by approximately one percentage point. The good trend in incomes and the improving employment situation support household consumption. The Nordic construction market represents 8 per cent of the Western European construction market. The Nordic construction market will grow by 3 per cent during the present year. In 2007 and 2008, growth will slacken. The moderate growth rate of euro interest rates supports the calm trend in investments and housing demand. Housing sales in Finland continue to be brisk. Growth in exports and industrial output increases the need for industrial investments and maintenance in the Nordic countries. Russia and Norway benefit from the high prices of oil. The rate of growth in Russia, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania is twice as fast as in the Nordic countries.
Finland

In November, the Research Institute of the Finnish Economy ETLA estimated that Finland’s GDP will rise by 3.6 per cent this year and 3.1 per cent in 2007. The improvement in the employment count, the good trend in incomes and the low interest rate level support household consumption and demand for housing. ETLA states that annual growth in fixed investments will be about 5 per cent both this year and the next. Investments in machinery and equipment will swing to growth of 6 per cent this year and 10 per cent the next. According to the business cycle report published by the Confederation of Finnish Construction Industries RT in November, the volume of construction will grow by 3 per cent both this year and the next. Residential construction and repair works will remain brisk. Housing construction permits in the January-November period increased by 9 per cent compared with the corresponding period of the previous year. Prices of old residences rose by 9 per cent on average during the year. Construction of industrial and commercial premises will also be on the up and office construction has now passed its low point. Annual growth in renovation works will be 2-3.5 per cent during the present decade.
Growth in new construction and renovation maintains demand in the construction and building system markets (heating, plumbing, air- conditioning, electrical and automation contracting, and maintenance). The market for industrial, property and infrastructure maintenance will expand as the outsourcing trend progresses. Telecom operators are expected to keep outsourcing their field functions in the future. Growth in the number of broadband connections will also continue. On the other hand, investments to expand the fixed and mobile phone networks will remain slight.

Sweden

At the end of December, the Swedish National Institute of Economic Research KI estimated that Sweden’s GDP will grow by 3.6 per cent this year and 3.1 per cent in 2007. The factors underlying this positive trend are the high capacity utilization ratio in industry, solid earnings, the positive incomes trend enjoyed by households and the low interest rates. Growth is on a broad footing. In 2006, exports will increase by 7.9 per cent due to international demand and the effect of the relatively weak Swedish kronor. Fixed investments will increase by 6.7 per cent this year, but will slacken to 4.7 per cent the next. Growth in fixed investments by industry will slow down to 5.1 per cent this year, and further to 3 per cent in 2007. Investments by the service sector are growing about two percentage points faster than those of industry. KI states that growth in housing investments will continue at a rate of 10.4 per cent this year and by 8.9 per cent the next. According to the business cycle barometer KI released in January, the order backlogs of construction companies have increased, and these companies expect to see further growth in production. Almost 60 per cent of construction firms estimate that construction activity will be on the up this year. Over 30 per cent of construction companies have reported that there is a shortage of skilled labour. The Swedish Construction Federation BI predicts that the construction of 32,000 new residential units will be started up this year and that total construction investments will increase by 4 per cent. Industrial construction will decline.

Norway

According to the forecast released by Statistics Norway in December, economic growth will hold steady at slightly over 2 per cent annually in 2006 –2009. Growth in domestic consumption will continue at a rate of 3 per cent during the whole forecast period.
The vigorous growth in fixed investments that got under way in 2004 will still continue at 6 per cent this year, but the completion of large oil and gas investments will depress investments into a decline of 2 per cent in 2007. Interest rates are low, but are swinging to moderate growth, the international economy is recovering and the prices of Norwegian export products are riding high. Housing investments are still high, but growth will already begin to slip off this year. It is estimated that residential start-ups numbered 28,000 last year, or 2,000 less than in the two previous years. According to Statistics Norway, the construction of 27,309 residences was started up in the January-November period, representing 1.2 per cent more floor area than in the corresponding period of the previous year. The amount of other building start-ups during the first 11 months of the report year was 1.4 per cent higher than in the corresponding period of the previous year. Demand for business and industrial buildings is expected to grow slightly in 2006 - 2009.
Euroconstruct estimated in November that the construction of new buildings will decline by 2.1 per cent this year and further by 1.6 and 1.1 per cent in 2007 and 2008, respectively. In 2006 – 2008, renovation would see growth of 2.5, 2.9 and 2.5 per cent. On the whole, building construction will remain at the high level that was achieved last year.

Denmark

The outlook for the Danish economy is good. In November, the Copenhagen Institute for Future Studies anticipated that annual GDP growth would amount to 2.5 per cent in 2005-2008. Export growth gathered steam last year, and is expected to continue at a rate of 4.5 per cent over the next few years. Private consumption is expected to rise by 2.5 per cent annually thanks to a positive incomes trend and stimulatory economic policy. Growth in investments is stable at around 3 per cent annually. The value of new housing construction will grow by 5 per cent both this year and the next, coming to a halt in 2008. In November, Euroconstruct estimated that the number of new residential start-ups will be 26,000 this year and 27,000 in both 2007 and 2008. Housing renovation will not see growth in these years. The construction of other types of new buildings will increase by 3.5 per cent both this year and the next. In 2008, growth will slacken to 1.3 per cent. The value of the production of industrial buildings will rise at a rate of 8 per cent and that of office buildings 5 per cent both this year and the next. Annual growth in repairs of office buildings is about one per cent.

Baltic countries

Growth in investments and GDP in the Baltic countries significantly outpaces growth in the Nordic countries, and is expected to remain at a level of 5.5-8 per cent during the next few years. The growth of these economies is supported by the high educational level in the area and the EU membership of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Growth in investments this year and the next will be around 6 per cent in Estonia, 8 per cent in Lithuania and 10 per cent in Latvia. In 2006-2008, the growth rate of construction investments will be in the double digits. Inflation in Estonia and Lithuania is 2-3 per cent; in Latvia, too, inflation will decline from its current level of 6 per cent to 3.5 per cent in 2008. Real interest rates have been negative in all three countries, but the slowing down of inflation will quickly swing them to zero. The interest rate spread with the euro will narrow as the countries seek EMU membership. Estonia and Lithuania will most likely achieve EMU entry in 2007, with Latvia following suit a year later. EMU membership might be delayed by the high inflation of these countries. Affordable borrowing, economic growth and the greater affluence of the population have increased demand for new residences and renovation. VTT estimates that this year 4,000 residential units will be completed in Estonia, 4,500 in Latvia and 8,000 in Lithuania.

Russia

The high price of oil supports Russian economic growth. Following GDP growth of over 7 per cent in 2003 and 2004, the forecast for GDP growth this year is 5-6 per cent and about 5 per cent for the next two years. The slight slackening of growth is due to the slowdown of growth in investments and industrial output. Inflation was 10.9 per cent last year and according to the Russian Ministry of Finance will slow down to no more than 8-9 per cent this year.
Growth in investments has begun to lose momentum in spite of the high price of oil and the high capacity utilization ratio, but remains slightly above the EU and Nordic average. Thanks to the good incomes trend, household consumption has become the primary engine of growth. The greater affluence of the middle class has strengthened demand for residences in large cities such as Moscow and St Petersburg.

EARNINGS TRENDS OF THE BUSINESS SEGMENTS

BUILDING SYSTEMS

In 2005, Building Systems’ revenue grew by 6 per cent on the previous year and amounted to EUR 1,398.4 million (EUR 1,321.2 million). The breakdown of revenue by country was as follows: Sweden, 38 per cent, Norway, 22 per cent, Denmark, 9 per cent, Finland, 28 per cent, and the Baltic countries and Russia, 3 per cent. The share of the revenue of the business segment accounted for by the maintenance and servicing business rose to 60 per cent, or EUR 840.7 million. The share of revenue generated by this business was 52 per cent in Sweden, 75 per cent in Norway, 58 per cent in Denmark, and 60 per cent in Finland, the Baltic countries and Russia.

Operating profit grew by 67 per cent to EUR 56.8 million (EUR 34.1 million). The operating profit margin improved to 4.1 per cent (2.6%). It was 5.2 per cent in the fourth quarter. Return on investment in 2005 was 22.0 per cent.

The order backlog at the end of the period was EUR 492.0 million (EUR 557.8 million). The breakdown of the backlog by country was: Sweden, 29 per cent, Norway, 19 per cent, Denmark, 17 per cent, and Finland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Russia, 35 per cent.
The decline in the order backlog by 12 per cent on the previous year was due to steps taken to improve profitability and focus operations on the maintenance and servicing business.

At the end of the period, the business segment had 11,731 employees (12,194). Of them, 4,130 worked in Sweden, 2,485 in Norway, 1,103 in Denmark, 3,424 in Finland, and 589 in the Baltic countries and Russia.

The market situation for building system services was good in 2005. Operations developed steadily in all of YIT’s business countries. Property refurbishing and modernization works increased. The market for maintenance and servicing grew, especially due to the greater amount and diversity of technical systems as well as the outsourcing of services. The construction markets of Sweden and Denmark revived after a long sedate period.
Construction remained brisk in Finland, Russia and the Baltic countries, and the market for new investments in building equipment systems improved. In Norway, housing construction continued apace and public construction was at a good level in the whole country.

CONSTRUCTION SERVICES

In 2005, Construction Services’ revenue rose by 13 per cent compared with the previous year and amounted to EUR 1,298.3 million (EUR 1,147.2 million). The maintenance business accounted for 3 per cent of revenue, or EUR 42.3 million. Of the revenue, 77 per cent was generated in Finland, 9 per cent in Russia, and 14 per cent in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.

Both the demand for construction services and earnings were good in all business areas. Operating profit was up 40 per cent to EUR 143.1 million (102.2). The operating profit margin improved to 11.0 per cent (8.9%). Return on investment was 25.8 per cent.

The uninvoiced backlog of orders was 17 per cent higher than in the previous year, having risen to EUR 1,242.6 million (EUR 1,066.4 million). The margin of the order backlog is good.

The business segment had 5,115 employees (5,102) at the end of the period.

In spite of abundant vacancies, new business premise projects were started up in Finland. Demand for commercial and logistics premises remained good. The backlog of works in civil engineering, water supply and environmental construction remained good.

Demand for residences in Finland remained solid during the whole year. In the Russian and Baltic markets, demand for housing remained strong, and residential construction was stepped up in line with the strategy. In April 2005, YIT Construction Ltd bolstered its position in the housing market of Moscow by founding the joint venture ZAO YIT CityStroi with local private shareholders.

During the past 12 months, the selling prices of the residences built by YIT in Russia and the Baltic countries have averaged slightly less than one-third of the prices of market-financed residences sold in Finland.

Developer-contracted housing construction requires good plot reserves. In land management, outlays were made on good plot reserves and their rapid turnover.

Plot reserves include plots that have been zoned and an estimate of the potential building rights on areas that are under zoning.
Building rights provided by regional development agreements made with landowners are not included in YIT’s balance sheet until the zoned sections are each in turn slated for construction.

INDUSTRIAL AND NETWORK SERVICES

The Industrial and Network Services business segment was created on June 1, 2005, by merging Services for Industry and Data Network Services. The Industrial and Network Services business segment’s comparative figures for 2004 have been calculated by combining the financial figures of these business segments. At the beginning of 2006, industrial electricity, automation and HEPAC operations in Finland were transferred to the Industrial and Network Services business segment from YIT Kiinteistötekniikka Oy. The transferred business functions had revenue of EUR 58.9 million in 2005.

The revenue of Industrial and Network Services grew by 11 per cent to EUR 398.8 million (EUR 359.0 million). Maintenance and business based on long-term customer agreements accounted for 77 per cent of revenue, or EUR 305.4 million. Operations in countries other than Finland generated 7 per cent.

Operating profit increased by 42 per cent to EUR 39.1 million (EUR 27.5 million). The operating profit margin improved to 9.8 per cent (7.7%). Return on investment was 63.3 per cent.

The order backlog at the end of the year amounted to EUR 173.3 million (EUR 199.2 million). The order backlog was down 13 per cent on the previous year due to the lower volume forecasts received from network service customers and progress on the Diesel project at Neste Oil’s Porvoo refinery. The order backlog in network services is based on forecasts from customers which extend until the end of the calendar year.

At the end of the year, the business segment had 4,126 employees (4,275).

Demand for the maintenance services offered to industry remained good in 2005, as did their outsourcing. The strike and labour lockout in the forest industry hindered industrial operations in the summer. In the case of investments by industry, a great deal of mechanical engineering output was exported. During the report year, investments were also started up in Finland, increasing demand for engineering products and installation works.

In the telecom sector, competition between operators remained severe, which led them to further transfer the responsibility for installation services into the hands of external service providers. There was steady growth in the number of broadband connections and YIT’s installation services were in brisk demand.

EVENTS AFTER THE END OF THE REVIEW PERIOD

YIT Construction Ltd’s Lithuanian subsidiary AB YIT Kausta sold its structural steel plant in Kaunas to the Finnish company Peikko Group. The ship electrification operations of the Telesilta business unit – part of YIT Industrial and Network Services – was sold to a soon-to-be-formed company that will be named Telesilta Oy.

OUTLOOK FOR 2006

We estimate that the pre-tax result for 2006 will be better than in the previous year.

CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, DECEMBER 31, 2005 (Figures in the financial statement bulletin are unaudited.)

Business segment structure

YIT’s business segment structure was firmed up on June 1, 2005, by merging Services for Industry and Data Network Services to form a single business segment: Industrial and Network Services. YIT’s business operations are now divided into three business segments: Building Systems, Construction Services and Industrial and Network Services. The Industrial and Network Services business segment’s comparative figures for 2004 have been calculated by combining the financial figures of the Services for Industry and Data Network Services business segments.

IFRS standards

YIT changed over to IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) on January 1, 2005. Prior to the adoption of IFRS, YIT’s financial reporting was based on Finnish Accounting Standards (FAS).

The financial statements for 2005 are drafted in accordance with IFRS recognition and measurement policies. The comparative figures for 2004 are in line with IFRS.

YIT Corporation’s IFRS comparative information for the 2004 financial year and a summary of the major changes were published as a stock exchange release on April 6, 2005. Due to revisions to IFRS standards, the comparative figures presented in the financial statement bulletin differ in some respects from the figures presented in the stock exchange release published on April 6.

Due to changes in IFRS norms, the financial information has been adjusted prior to its inclusion as comparative information in the Group’s first IFRS financial statements drafted for the financial year ending on December 31, 2005.
