Financial information in this interim report is unaudited.

TIE Kinetix, the leading provider of software as a service (SaaS) managed solutions for supply chain digitization with EDI, announced its half year interim financial results for FY 2021 today. All figures stated are in thousands of euros unless otherwise indicated.

TIE Kinetix delivered a very strong first half year 2021. The company has seen organic revenue growth with an increase in subscription-based revenue, and net income from continuing operations is significantly higher than in 2020 (+1,119%). This growth can be attributed to sales to both new and existing customers and notable growth in consultancy revenue in the Netherlands.

With large contracts in the business-to-business and business-to-government markets in the Netherlands, Germany, and the U.S., order intake has increased (+22%). This growth is fully attributable to SaaS order intake and is in line with the company’s strategic focus to grow SaaS revenue. Additionally, a more streamlined product offering has led to a decrease in operational expenses, resulting in a sharp EBITDA increase (+50%).


Key Figures: First Half Year Results (Period Oct. 1, 2020 – Mar. 31, 2021)

(€ * 1000) HY 2021 HY 2020* Variance (%)
Total Revenues 7,426 7,185 +3%
Of which: Subscription-based: 5,735 5,413 +6%
EBITDA 1,643 1,099 +50%
EBIT 793  171 +365%
Net income from continuing operations 871  71 +1,119%
* HY 2020 key figures are restated for the following:
 - To exclude results from TIE International B.V. that was sold during FY 2020 (classified as discontinued operations);
 - The table ‘Key Figures’ also excludes results from the Demand Generation business that was sold during FY 2020. Please note that the FY 2020 and HY 2020 continued operations in the FY 2020 annual report and HY 2021 interim consolidated financial statements (pages 11 and onwards of this report) include results from the Demand Generation business in FY 2020 and HY 2020 respectively as part of continuing operations. Please refer also to section ‘Use of alternative performance measures’ on page 8; and
 - To include the effects of the new lease accounting standard IFRS 16.
 Reference is made to notes 5 and 8 of the interim consolidated financial statements.

Revenues for the first half year of FY 2021 have grown organically by 3% to €7,426K compared to €7,185K in the first half year of FY 2020 when excluding the Demand Generation and Google AdWords for Channel business lines that were sold in the second half of 2020. SaaS revenues have grown by 17% with the increased usage of services from our cloud-based FLOW platform. As customers continue to migrate to our FLOW platform, maintenance and licenses revenue of on premises solutions have decreased. Additionally, the U.S. segment has benefitted from a corona-related government grant, and all segments have profited from a relative reduction of cost of sales.

Jan Sundelin, CEO, TIE Kinetix says: “In the first half year TIE Kinetix has successfully concluded several large deals in the business-to-business market as well as in the business-to-government market. At the same time, we have a solid pipeline of orders that we expect to come in in the second half year. These orders with new and existing customers are the proof of a strong demand for our products and services focusing on 100% digitalization of the supply chain. The increased awareness for 100% digitalization is only strengthened in the pandemic and lockdown measures taken in the countries of our operations. With our costs under control, the company operates well ahead of plan for the year.”
