Q2 2020 IFRS financial results

As already stated in the ad hoc announcement on 16 July, 2020, revenues for Q2 2020 increased by 9.3% to EUR 145.0 million from EUR 132.7 million in Q1 2020 and grew by 8.9% from EUR 133.2 million in the same year-ago period.

Pro forma operating income for Q2 2020 was EUR 10.1 million (7.0% of revenues), significantly up from EUR 1.7 million loss (-1.3% of revenues) in Q1 2020 and also up from EUR 4.3 million income (3.3% of revenues) in the same year-ago period. The significant increase in profitability is mainly due to the operational cost improvement measures introduced in 2019.

Consequently, operating income for Q2 2020 of EUR 8.7 million significantly increased from the EUR 4.0 million loss reported for Q1 2020 and also increased from EUR 2.5 million income in the same year-ago quarter.

Net income was EUR 7.6 million in Q2 2020 and overcompensated a net loss of EUR 7.2 million in Q1 2020 and also grew substantially from a net income of EUR 1.3 million in Q2 2019.

At quarter-end, the company’s cash and cash equivalents totaled at EUR 67.6 million, representing an increase of 28.1% compared to EUR 52.8 million at the end of Q1 2020 and a significant increase of 40.0% compared to EUR 48.3 million in Q2 2019.

Consequently, net debt in Q2 2020 decreased by EUR 22.7 million to EUR 45.0 million from EUR 67.7 million at the end of Q1 2020 and improved by EUR 23.2 million compared to Q2 2019.

Net working capital at quarter-end was EUR 127.9 million compared to EUR 134.2 million at the end of Q1 2020 and decreased despite increased revenues.

Management commentary

“Our results in the second quarter of 2020 were convincing. So far, the demand for our products and services has developed positively during the Covid-19 pandemic. A recession-related slowdown in the second half of the year is still possible, but, in the meantime, we believe that we will have further revenue growth in Q3,” said Brian Protiva, CEO, ADVA. “The pandemic has made our production and supply chains more complex and our transportation costs increased. But our ability to deliver is stable and fundamentally intact. Additionally, we have a global, well-diversified and loyal customer base with which we can expand and improve the digital infrastructure that our society is so increasingly dependent on.”

”Despite the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we managed to increase revenues and earnings in the second quarter, both sequentially and year over year,” commented Uli Dopfer, CFO, ADVA. “Our significantly improved profitability is mainly the result of the cost improvement measures that we introduced in 2019. Furthermore, we were able to improve our cash position compared to the first quarter by around EUR 15 million to EUR 67.6 million providing a solid financial basis. Due to the ongoing risks, both on the supply and on the demand side, we have concluded a KfW back-up facility of EUR 40 million for hedging purposes should a further Covid-19-driven crisis occur. With this preventive measure, we feel prepared for all scenarios.”

The company will publish its financial results for Q3 2020 on October 22, 2020.

Panasonic: Verifiering av den hämmande effekten hos nanoe™ X, en teknik som nyttjar fördelarna med hydroxylradikaler, på det nya coronaviruset (SARS-CoV-2)27.10.2020 18:30:00 CETPressmeddelande

Panasonic tillkännagav idag, i samarbete med den globala kontraktforskningsorganisationen Texcell*1, att Texcell har verifierat den hämmande effekten hos nanoe™ X, en teknik som nyttjar fördelarna med hydroxylradikaler, på det det nya coronaviruset (SARS-CoV-2). nanoe™ X, en joniserare som genererar ”atomiserade vattenpartiklar av nanostorlek”, har utvecklas av Panasonic. Detta är en elektrostatisk atomiseringsteknik som samlar upp osynlig fukt i luften och tillför högspänning för att producera ”hydroxylradikaler i vattnet”. Den avgörande faktorn är att det förekommer hydroxylradikaler i nanoe™ X. Hydroxylradikalerna kännetecknas av att ha en hög oxidation och reaktivitet. Panasonic har bedrivit forskning på denna teknik sedan 1997 och har verifierat dess effektivitet på olika områden, inklusive hämning av vissa patogena mikroorganismer (bakterier, svampar och virus) och allergener, och att den bryter ned PM 2.5-komponenter som har negativa effekter på människokroppen*2. 2012 genomförd

Rimini Street, Inc. (Nasdaq: RMNI), a global provider of enterprise software products and services, the leading third-party support provider for Oracle and SAP software products and a Salesforce partner, today announced that Pulse Electronics, a leading components manufacturer for the automotive and telecommunications industries, has switched to Rimini Street support for its SAP ECC 6.0 and Business Objects software.
