    Kapsch TrafficCom – Results for the first quarter of 2022/23

    Highlights Revenues increased by 3% Strong development of the components business (+20%). Due to the stronger US   dollar and higher nominal compensation, personnel costs increased despite lower headcount. This led to a decline in operating profitability (EBIT). Seasonal development of working capital led to negative free cash flow. “The economic environment remained very challenging in the first quarter. Nevertheless, we managed to increase revenues by 3% to EUR 130 million compared to the first quarter of the previous year. Despite also increasing costs, we were able to close the quarter with a positive EBIT. For the rest of the financial year, we will continue to focus on the acquisition of new business on the one hand and on cost management on the other”, says Georg Kapsch, CEO of Kapsch TrafficCom. Unless otherwise stated, all values in EUR million Q1 2021/22 Q1 2022/23 +/- Revenues 126.8 130.5 +2.9% EBIT 6.6 0.5 -92.1%    EBIT margin 5.2% 0.4% -4.8pp Result for the period attributable to equity holders 3.2 -1.3 n.a. Earnings per share (EUR) 0.24 -0.10 € -0.34 Vienna, August 17, 2022 – Kapsch TrafficCom managed to increase revenues by 3% to EUR 130 million compared to the previous year. Higher operating costs, partly due to inflation, led to a decrease in the operating result (EBIT) to EUR 1 million (previous year: EUR 7 million). A favorable development of exchange rates, above all of the US dollar against the euro, led to an almost balanced financial result (previous year: EUR -2 million). As the result before taxes reached a black zero, hardly any income taxes were incurred. Nevertheless, they resulted in Kapsch TrafficCom reporting a red zero as the result for the period in the first quarter 2022/23 (previous year: EUR 3 million). The result for the period attributable to equity holders amounted to EUR -1 million (previous year: EUR 3 million), which corresponds to earnings per share of EUR -0.10 (previous year: EUR 0.24). It is a recurring seasonal trend that in the first quarter of the financial year the change in working capital leads to a negative free cash flow. In the first quarter of 2022/23, it amounted to EUR ‑22 million (previous year: EUR ‑11 million). As a consequence, net debt increased to EUR 184 million (March 31, 2022: EUR 158 million) and the equity ratio decreased to 14%. Total assets amounted to EUR 497 million as of June 30, 2022 (March 31, 2022: EUR 512 million). Segment results for the first quarters of 2022/23 73% of revenues were generated by the tolling segment and 27% by the traffic management segment. The Europe-Middle East-Africa (EMEA) region accounted for 48% of revenues, the Americas region (North, Central and South America) for 46% and the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region for 6%. Tolling segment Revenues increased by 7% to EUR 96 million, driven by higher revenues in the implementation and components businesses. The operations business declined slightly. The Americas region made the largest contribution to revenues with 48%. EMEA generated 46% of tolling revenues and APAC around 6%.  Tolling segment. Unless otherwise stated, all values in EUR million Q1 2021/22 Q1 2022/23 +/- Revenues 89.6 95.9 +7.0% EBIT 3.1 -1.6 n.a.    EBIT margin 3.5% -1.7% -5.2pp EBIT was EUR -2 million (previous year: EUR 3 million) and the EBIT margin was -2% (previous year: 4%). Segment Traffic Management Revenues decreased by 7% to EUR 35 million, mainly due to a decline in the implementation business. The largest contribution to revenues was made by the EMEA region with 54%. Americas generated 42% of traffic management revenues and APAC 4%. Traffic Management segment.

    Kapsch TrafficCom: Fewer crashes and reduced fuel consumption on Queensland’s Bruce Highway

    Kapsch TrafficCom supplies Connected Roadside technology as part of the Intelligent Transport Systems initiative to provide increased safety and efficiency to drivers The company is attending this year’s ITS Australia Summit 2022 in Brisbane Melbourne, August 11, 2022   – Kapsch TrafficCom is proud to be part of the team working on the Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems upgrade of Queensland's Bruce Highway, jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland governments. The Cooperative and Automated Vehicle Initiative (CAVI), delivered by Queensland's Department of Transport and Main Roads (DTMR), piloted the system within the Ipswich Connected Vehicle Pilot between September 2021 to 2022. The Ipswich pilot validated the crash reduction benefits for the use cases tested. The Ipswich pilot systems consisted of 29 signalised intersections using Roadside Intelligent Transport Systems Stations (R-ITS-S) and a central facility to test six safety use cases. "This project gives regional road users the chance to explore the C-ITS service along the highway before it becomes commercially available in vehicles, which we are expecting on Australian roads in 2024-25," Minister for Transport and Main Roads of Queensland, Hon Mark Bailey said. "My department is focused on unlocking the crash reduction benefits of C-ITS. This system is expected to reduce crashes by 20%, contributing towards the Queensland Government's vision of zero road deaths and serious injuries, and save around $2   billion over the next 30   years.” Since the Ipswich pilot's conclusion, Kapsch TrafficCom has supplied and remotely commissioned an additional 37 Kapsch TrafficCom road-side units (RSUs) along the Bruce Highway. Covering over 1,500 kilometres along the northeast coast of Australia, between Brisbane and Cairns. The road-side units that Kapsch TrafficCom supplies for the project are located at traffic lights where the Bruce Highway passes through townships. The RSUs broadcast signal status and timing to connected road users, providing them with crucial warnings of red lights and pedestrian presence at crossings. "As traffic volumes increase, connected vehicle technology will play a major role in improving safety and efficiency of the transport network. Bruce Highway is one of the major traffic arteries in Queensland and Kapsch TrafficCom's C-ITS technology gives regional road users the chance to experience the benefits of this technology as it starts to become more commonly available in vehicles” , comments Matthew McLeish, EVP for the APAC region at Kapsch TrafficCom. “The project implementation and pilot execution have created a blueprint for C-ITS projects in Australia and internationally” , Matthew continues. “The collaborative approach between Kapsch TrafficCom and DTMR was essential to delivering a quality solution.” The Bruce Highway C-ITS extension builds on the Ipswich pilot which focused on trialing the core system functionality and developing capability for operators to operate, maintain, and monitor the hardware. The findings of the trial were positive, with a majority of users saying they would continue using the equipment. If you want to find out more about the Bruce Highway C-ITS project and other ongoing projects, come by booth 8 at this year’s ITS Australia Summit 2022 in Brisbane (16-18 August)!

    Capital City Sharjah´s New “Traffic Flow Project” with Kapsch TrafficCom

    The 1.5 million city Sharjah reduces emissions with next level of mobility management Vienna/Sharjah, August 4, 2022 – Sharjah, the capital city of the Emirate of Sharjah, is actively developing the next level of intelligent traffic management capabilities together with Kapsch TrafficCom. The 1.5   million city Sharjah is the third-most populous city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The new, centralized control system will help with providing improved traffic flow and shorter travel times to drivers across the majority of the city and increase the safety of citizens. Additionally, a state-of-the-art traffic control center will enable the city with the ability to manage traffic in a comprehensive and coordinated way directly across 48 key junctions all over the city. The system will also further strengthen the city’s position as a “healthy city”, as improved traffic flow also means fewer emissions and higher quality of living for city residents, while also cutting down fuel costs for commuters. “ We at Kapsch TrafficCom are delighted to support Sharjah City in a project of this magnitude and are thankful for the excellent cooperation with the team in the traffic engineering department of SRTA. The technology will optimize the city's traffic for the benefit of residents’ quality of life, resulting in less time in the car throughout their journey,” says Fakhar Munir, Country Manager UAE at Kapsch TrafficCom. “It also helps in reducing the carbon emission of the city, which supports His Highness Sultan Bin   Mohammed Al   Qasimi, the ruler of the Emirate of Sharjah’s commitment towards cutting down carbon emissions. This project reinforces Sharjah’s position as one of the leading cities in the UAE when it comes to traffic management.” Over a period of 12 months, which started in May 2022, Kapsch TrafficCom will supply and install 48 controllers, cameras and its EcoTrafiX™ software, integrate the system and design a traffic control center for city authorities. Beyond the initial 12 months, the company is also tasked with maintaining the system for three additional years. The system functions as follows: The EcoTrafiX™ Expert software that is installed at the central control center receives the traffic data collected by the video cameras and traffic controllers, and through calculations identifies the optimal cycle and split for each intersection based on traffic volume, stop duration, and more. This information is then sent back to the traffic controller which adapts traffic light cycles and other variables to optimize the flow of traffic and ultimately reduce travel time, average required stops and also emissions.

    First Smart City project in Peru relies on Kapsch TrafficCom

    Lima District Miraflores introduces intelligent mobility and safety management State-of-the-art technology developed by Kapsch TrafficCom and Cibernos Lima, July 20, 2022 – Miraflores is the first city to launch a comprehensive Smart City project in Peru. The objective: Improve the quality of life for citizens by strengthening security as well as efficient traffic management and making the district more sustainable. To this end, a modular growth platform will integrate various information such as on mobility, security, tourism and the environment using open protocols and analytics. Mobility solution provided by Kapsch T he mobility and safety verticals of the project rely on advanced technology developed by Kapsch TrafficCom and Cibernos. The two companies make up the consortium chosen by Miraflores to provide the mobility and safety management systems. These will be integrated into the city's Smart City platform. For mobility management, Kapsch will implement its Ecotrafix™ solution, a state-of-the-art integrated mobility management software. The technology has already been implemented in cities such as Buenos Aires, Madrid, Belo Horizonte, Panama City, among several others around the world. State-of-the-art traffic management increases safety Mobility in the city will be improved by intelligent traffic signalization with EcoTrafiX Controller™ which is highly robust and efficient and has the most advanced functionalities in terms of traffic management. In addition, intelligent horizontal signaling for crosswalks will be implemented, with traffic lights that replicate the on-road signaling by illuminating the floor at the crossings to increase pedestrian safety. The project also includes the installation of more than 300 cameras with various functions such as license plate recognition, facial recognition, traffic analytics and photo fines, the latter managed by the powerful EcoTrafix Enforce™ module. The new cameras will generate an electronic perimeter for access control and road safety. Integrated into the EcoTrafix™ platform, they will be able to generate data on traffic flow, vehicle fleet and service level status on the municipality's roads, in addition to enabling easy recognition of pedestrians to enhance citizen safety, traffic and pedestrian traceability. Thus, district managers will have access to the necessary information for an intelligent and proactive management of mobility. “Smart Cities are the future” "This project will bring direct benefits to the citizens and we are very proud to make a contribution to it with our technology,” says Carlos Wiedmaier, Vice President Solution Consulting for Latin America at Kapsch TrafficCom. “We are certain that Smart Cities are the future. We hope that more Latin American cities will be inspired and start investing in technology for smarter mobility management.”

    Kapsch TrafficCom to set up of one of the largest urban Multi-Lane Free-Flow systems worldwide in Gothenburg

    Kapsch to design, build and run operations for 10   years Vienna/Gothenburg, July 14 2022 – The Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket) has assigned Kapsch TrafficCom to build a new Multi-Lane Free-Flow system (MLFF) in Gothenburg, Sweden. The contract was signed on July,   5 2022. The MLFF scheme covers a complex city area passed through by approximately 150 million vehicles each year. In terms of tolling stations and charging points, the Swedish project ranks among the biggest urban congestion charging projects in the world. “We are proud to have won this large-scale contract and look forward to implementing a reliable and high-performing system in Gothenburg. Our system will capture vehicle data in a quality which is the best-in-class within the tolling industry. We will provide the best possible information to enable the authority to make the correct taxation decisions of the vehicles using the infrastructure," says Mikael Hejel, responsible Area Sales Manager for the Nordic countries. In the city of Gothenburg, the existing system supplied by two different providers is reaching its end of life. Therefore the 42 existing tolling stations consisting of 85 charging and checkpoints will be fully replaced, covering a total of 138 lanes. The new Multi-Lane Free-Flow System allows vehicles to be identified automatically at the free-flow tolling stations, under any traffic and climatic conditions. The information captured is transmitted to the back-office of the Swedish Transport Agency (Transportstyrelsen) for processing and invoicing taxation decisions to the vehicle owners. The scheme generates approximately 90 million Euros in tax revenue per year. The contract covers both the replacement of all existing charging points and checkpoints by the new MLFF system provided by Kapsch TrafficCom, as well as the technical operation 24/7/365 for 10 years. The contract also includes options of extension of the technical operation and options for supply of additional charging points and checkpoints.

    Kapsch TrafficCom installerar ett av världens största avgiftsbelagda friflödessystem i stadsmiljö i Göteborg

    Kapsch ska planera, bygga och driva verksamheten i 10   år Wien/Göteborg, 14 juli 2022 – Trafikverket har gett Kapsch TrafficCom i uppdrag att bygga ett nytt friflödessystem för flera körfält (Multi-Lane Free-Flow, MLFF) i Göteborg. Kontraktet undertecknades den 5   juli 2022 . MLFF-systemet omsluter ett komplext stadsområde som passeras av cirka 150 miljoner fordon varje år. Det svenska projektet hör till de största i världen med avseende på betalstationer för trängselavgifter i städer. ”Vi är stolta över att ha vunnit detta storskaliga kontrakt och ser fram emot att implementera ett pålitligt och högpresterande system i Göteborg. Vårt system kommer att samla in fordonsdata av förstklassig kvalitet, och därmed förse myndigheten med bästa möjliga information så att korrekta skattebeslut kan fattas för de fordon som använder infrastrukturen,” säger Mikael Hejel, ansvarig Area Sales Manager för de nordiska länderna. Det befintliga systemet i Göteborg, som har levererats av två olika leverantörer, håller på att närma sig slutet av sin livslängd. Därför kommer de nuvarande 42 betalstationerna, som inkluderar 85 betal- och kontrollpunkter och täcker totalt 138 körfält, att bytas ut helt och hållet. Med det nya friflödessystemet för flera körfält (MLFF) kan fordon identifieras automatiskt vid betalstationerna, oavsett trafik- och klimatförhållanden. Den insamlade informationen överförs till Transportstyrelsens back office för behandling och fakturering av skattebeslut till fordonsägarna. Systemet genererar cirka 90 miljoner euro i skatteintäkter per år. Kontraktet omfattar således utbytet av alla befintliga betalstationer med det nya MLFF-systemet från Kapsch TrafficCom, men öven den tekniska driften 24/7/365 under 10 år. Kontraktet innehåller också möjligheter till förlängning av den tekniska driften och möjligheter till leverans av ytterligare betal- och kontrollpunkter.

    Kapsch TrafficCom – Results for financial year 2021/22

    Headlines Operational turnaround achieved, EBIT positive again effect Both segments EBIT positive Revenues slightly higher – overall, in both segments and in all regions Tax line prevents positive result for the period Guidance 2022/23: stable revenue level and further EBIT improvement “I am pleased that we have managed the operative turnaround. In a challenging environment, both segments grew and we grew in all regions. In the new financial year, we want to further improve profitability”, says Georg Kapsch, CEO of Kapsch TrafficCom. (Unless otherwise stated, all values in EUR million) 2020/21 2021/22 +/- Revenues 505.2 519.8 +2.9% EBIT -123.2 11.0 n.a.    EBIT margin -24.4% 2.1% +26.5pp Result for the period attributable to equity holders -102.9 -9.3 +91% Earnings per share (EUR) -7.91 -0.72 € +7.19 Vienna, June   15, 2022  – The financial year 2021/22 has essentially delivered what Kapsch TrafficCom had predicted in the outlook of the consolidated financial statements of the previous financial year: Revenues showed slight growth and EBIT was positive again. After a difficult phase, Kapsch TrafficCom succeeded in achieving a visible turnaround as from the first quarter. This was accomplished despite a restrained revenue development, which was primarily due to two reasons. On the one hand, the main focus in North America continued to be on stabilizing the organization following extensive restructuring measures. Secondly, the Group continued to feel the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. New business momentum was persistently low, especially in the European implementation business, due to a lack of sufficient market opportunities. The majority of the company's customers are public institutions, authorities or corporations. In most countries, their focus was either on combating the pandemic or on supporting the economy and labor markets. Strengthening budgets and investments to support environmental goals were therefore not yet a sufficient priority. In addition, bottlenecks in electronic components meant that existing demand for components could not be met as desired and an order backlog formed. As of February 24, 2022, the attention of the world public was focused on the fighting in Ukraine. Kapsch TrafficCom has no customers in this country. As a result of the sanctions imposed by the European Union against Russia, Kapsch TrafficCom did not accept any new orders from this country. Revenues in Russia have always been below 1% of Group revenues in recent years. The sanctions against Belarus affected Kapsch TrafficCom only to a minor extent. In this environment, Kapsch TrafficCom succeeded in increasing revenues to EUR 520 million (+3%) in financial year 2021/22. The tolling and traffic management segments grew by 3% and 2%, respectively. Positive growth rates were also recorded across the board from a regional perspective: Revenues in the Europe, Middle East, Africa (“EMEA”) region increased by 2%, those in North, Central and South America (“Americas”) by 3% and revenues in Asia Pacific (“APAC”)  by 11%. The result from operating activities (EBIT) was positive at EUR 11 million (previous year: EUR -123 million). The turnaround was achieved, although special effects in the amount of EUR -32 million (previous year: EUR -132 million) burdened EBIT. The financial result amounted to EUR -5 million (previous year: EUR -10 million). Tax expenses amounted to EUR 12 million (previous year: tax income of EUR 28 million). The reason for the relatively high tax expense is that individual Group companies were not able to claim their negative results for the period as deferred tax assets (from loss carryforwards). The result for the period attributable to shareholders amounted to EUR -9 million (previous year: EUR -103 million), which corresponds to earnings per share of EUR -0.72 (previous year: EUR -7.91). Free cash flow amounted to EUR 17 million in in financial year 2021/22 (previous year: EUR 4 million). Therefore, net debt decreased to EUR 158 million since the last balance sheet date (March 31, 2021: EUR 170 million). The gearing remained constant at 203%. Total assets amounted to EUR 512 million as of March 31, 2022 (March 31, 2021: EUR 593 million). The equity ratio increased from 14% to 15%. Segment results for financial year 2021/22 71% of revenues were generated by the tolling segment and 29% by the traffic management segment. 54% of Group revenues were generated in the Europe-Middle East-Africa (EMEA) region, 41% in the Americas region (North, Central and South America) and 5% the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.   Tolling segment Revenues increased by 3% to EUR 370 million. Declines in the implementation business of 11% were offset by 9% higher operations revenues and 7% higher component revenues. The largest contribution to revenues was made by the EMEA region with EUR 192 million. In the Americas region, revenues increased by 7% to EUR 158 million. In the APAC region, revenues remained at around EUR 20 million. Segment Tolling. (Unless otherwise stated, all values in EUR million) 2020/21 2021/22 +/- Revenues 358.2 369.9 +3.2% EBIT -117.2 3.3 n.a.    EBIT margin -32.7% 0.9% +33.6pp EBIT was positive at EUR 3 million (previous year: EUR -117 million). The EBIT margin was 1% (previous year: -33%).   Segment Traffic Management Revenues increased by 2% to EUR 150 million, driven in particular by the operations business, which grew by 11%. The largest contribution to revenues was made by the EMEA region with EUR 90 million, which corresponds to a year-on-year increase of 4%. In the Americas region, revenues declined by 5% to EUR 54 million. In the APAC region, sales increased by EUR 3 million to EUR 6 million. Segment Traffic Management. (Unless otherwise stated, all values in EUR million) 2020/21 2021/22 +/- Revenues 147.0 149.9 +2.0% EBIT -6.0 7.7 n.a.    EBIT margin -4.1% 5.1% +9.2pp EBIT was positive at EUR 8 million (previous year: EUR -6 million). The EBIT margin reached 5% (previous year: -4%). Outlook Management expects a clear improvement in profitability at a stable revenue level for the financial year 2022/23. In order to achieve these goals, the focus will remain on new business acquisition and cost discipline. The report on financial year 2021/22 as well as further material on the results will be available today, probably from 7:35 a.m. (CEST), at: www.kapsch.net/en/ktc/IR

    How Road User Charging could help London fight congestion and boost long-term transport funding

    With more electric vehicles on the road than ever, the congestion challenge in London remains large whilst congestion charge revenues are falling. “Pay-per-mile Road User Charging (RUC) would provide fair, appropriate and effective solutions to the capital’s pressing congestion and funding challenges,” suggests Steve Parsons. Kapsch TrafficCom will be present at this year’s Traffex in Birmingham from June 14 to 16. Vienna/London, June 9, 2022  – In a bid to control traffic congestion and minimise associated air pollution, London Mayor Sadiq Khan has announced plans to expand London’s Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) during 2023. The aim is that the expanded ULEZ will help to reduce NOx emissions from vehicles in Greater London by up to 330 tonnes per year and CO 2 emissions by up to 150,000 tonnes. But although this is clearly great for the health of the city, the adoption of electric vehicles, which is gathering pace across the UK, means that fuel consumption – and related fuel duties – are declining. This, in turn, will further reduce funding available for transportation, while doing nothing to reduce the total number of vehicles on the road – and the related congestion challenges. When it comes to solving London’s congestion and funding challenges, road user charging (RUC) is likely to play a key role. This technology looks at both the distance travelled by motorists in their vehicles, as well as the type and emissions status of vehicles – and applies charges based on these criteria. “ Because of its ‘pay-per-mile’ approach, RUC is much fairer than traditional congestion charging solutions that apply flat-rate charges for all vehicles, whether they travel for just a few miles in the restricted zone, or drive around all day ,” explains Steve Parsons, Sales Director at Kapsch TrafficCom. “ At Kapsch TrafficCom, we provide the powerful back-end systems that power London’s congestion charging, LEZ and ULEZ schemes. What’s more, our broad portfolio of RUC technology solutions and tolling and congestion charging expertise provides a clear and uniquely low-risk roadmap to RUC across the capital when the time is right ,” Steve Parsons continues. Having deployed a nationwide satellite distance-based tolling solution for Heavy Goods Vehicles in Bulgaria, Kapsch has also field-tested end-to-end RUC capabilities – with excellent outcomes and KPIs achieved. If you want to find out more about RUC and other ongoing projects, come by booth F040 at this year’s Traffex in Birmingham (14-16 June) and say hello to Steve!

    Environmental award from the City of Vienna for Kapsch TrafficCom and Kapsch Components

    Vienna, May 19, 2022 – The City of Vienna has once again honored Kapsch TrafficCom (KTC) as an ”OekoBusiness” company. The subsidiary Kapsch Components (KCO) is pleased to receive this award for the tenth time in a row this year. Once again, numerous energy and resource saving potentials were identified and suitable measures implemented in production and logistics. Kapsch TrafficCom, as a globally active provider of intelligent traffic solutions, took part in the City of Vienna's ÖKOWIN environmental consulting program with its operations on the Wienerberg. The goal is to improve the ecological footprint at the Vienna operating location. "Through the City of Vienna's program, we were once again able to realize significant potential for emission savings. Thus, our products, services and also the company itself make a considerable contribution to climate and environmental protection," says Georg Kapsch, CEO of Kapsch TrafficCom. The environmental teams of KTC and KCO presented the results of the ÖKOWIN program in the form of a report and a presentation to the expert commission. The jury was particularly impressed by the measures in the area of circular economy. For example, 90% of the millions of digital toll collection devices sold (OBU4010) can now be reused. These and other jointly implemented innovations led to the OekoBusiness advisory board awarding Kapsch TrafficCom and Kapsch Components the title “OekoBusiness Wien 2021” from the City of Vienna for their commitment to sustainable business practices. The OekoBusiness certificate is valid for a period of one year. Further information on the topic of sustainability at Kapsch TrafficCom can be found here .

    New Colombia Traffic Management System Strengthens Regional Economy

    Intelligent Transport System increases throughput Safer traffic for individuals and better mobility for businesses in Antioquia region Vienna/Bogotá, April 28, 2022 – Within just a few months the highways and tunnels of the Vias del Nus concession have registered over 300,000 vehicles – all without any notable incidents. Stretching over 157 kilometers, the Vias del Nus highway network connects Colombia’s second largest city Medellin and its 2.5 million inhabitants with the eastern parts of the Antioquia region. The intelligent transportation system used by the concession provides safety and improved mobility for road users. This also helps the tourism, agricultural and transportation sectors of the surrounding municipalities, as the roadway connects the region to more populated areas of the country. “From December 4 to date, the operation has been impeccable. More than 300,000 vehicles have passed through and there have been no incidents, with the exception of a couple of stranded vehicles that have been attended to immediately, so we are very satisfied,” says Ricardo López Lombana, General Manager of Vinus. It is estimated that vehicle circulation through the concession’s La Quiebra tunnels has increased by 60% since the system was implemented, positively impacting the region’s economy. “Tourist traffic to previously difficult-to-reach municipalities has skyrocketed. What used to be a three-hour drive from Medellin can now be reached within 40 to 50 minutes, increasing competitivity and attracting new investors to the region,” continues the Vinus manager. Olga Villegas, Vice President of Kapsch TrafficCom for Colombia and the entire Andean Region, adds: “We at Kapsch TrafficCom are proud to provide reliable and safe technological solutions in such a strategic project that improves the country's transportation network. Our DYNAC ATMS® solution guarantees the high level of security required by this important road corridor that is frequented by thousands of vehicles every day.” The La Quiebra tunnels, 4.3 kilometers each, are the first tunnels in Latin America to be equipped with the high performance software suite DYNAC ATMS®, developed and implemented by Kapsch TrafficCom. DYNAC ATMS® integrates three systems that are usually found separately: a SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system for control of electromechanical elements, an incident management system and a system for ATMS (Advanced Traffic Management System) management. In its modern control center, the system manages and monitors traffic, responding to any incident quickly and efficiently to prevent congestion.

    Safer and more convenient traffic flow in Basque region Bizkaia through barrier-free toll system by Kapsch TrafficCom

    The toll system enables toll management without stopping the vehicle. The project will be implemented on various high-capacity roads and affects heavy vehicles.   Vienna/Madrid, April   21, 2022  – Kapsch TrafficCom will implement a toll system for heavy vehicles on multiple high-capacity roads in the Basque region of Bizkaia. The system allows tolls to be managed automatically without the vehicle having to stop at the collection point, thus contributing to safer, smoother and more comfortable traffic flow for users. This project was awarded by the public company Interbiak, will be carried out as part of a joint venture with Construcciones Amenábar. It involves an investment of EUR 12.5 million and will be implemented over a period of about 20 months. “Our technology eliminates the traditional booths and barriers to maintain traffic flow and contributes to reducing emissions as the vehicle does not have to stop and start again in the collection area, similar to the technology applied in the M50   project in Ireland. In addition, the entire system is flexible and scalable in functionality and capacity, so that as new needs are identified, they can be implemented without excessive changes”, says Steve   Parsons, Sales Director at Kapsch TrafficCom. Compared to traditional toll systems, the Multi Lane Free Flow (MLFF) technology collects and processes toll data electronically and automatically and improves the flow of traffic on the roads. Furthermore, it is capable of incorporating all the sensors and equipment that make up the toll collection point in a single gantry – a characteristic of the technological solution of Kapsch TrafficCom. This means that the system can identify and record the front and rear number plates, continuously track all vehicles and electronic payment devices (TAGs) that circulate through the toll collection or control point and send them to Interbiak's Central System for processing. The collection point system is designed to manage payment with the TAG device, while those vehicles that do not have this electronic payment device will be able to associate their number plate with a means of payment authorised by Interbiak.

    Vienna, March 25, 2022 – According to the decision of the competent arbitral tribunal, autoTicket   GmbH is entitled to damages and reimbursement of expenses against the Federal Republic of Germany. This is apparent from the interim arbitral award delivered to the contractor parties today. Following the termination of the operating agreement for the collection of the infrastructure charge ("passenger car toll") in Germany, autoTicket GmbH, the joint venture of Kapsch TrafficCom AG and CTS Eventim AG Co. KGaA, has asserted claims for compensation in the amount of approximately EUR 560 million against the Federal Republic of Germany. The arbitral tribunal confirmed that the claims asserted by autoTicket GmbH in the arbitration proceedings for compensation of the gross enterprise value and for reimbursement of the costs incurred in the execution of the operating agreement exist on the merits. Accordingly, the Federal Republic of Germany, represented by the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, was not allowed to unilaterally withdraw from the contract without compensation. The arbitral award also rejected poor performance, as alleged by the Federal Republic of Germany, as a reason for termination. The first phase of the two-stage arbitral proceedings has thus been concluded. In the second phase of the arbitral proceedings that now follows, a decision is made on the amount of the claim.

    World´s smartest traffic management system launches in Melbourne

    One of Melbourne’s busiest roads will host a world-leading traffic management system using the latest technology to reduce traffic jams and improve road safety. The ‘Intelligent Corridor’ at Nicholson Street, Carlton will be launched by the University of Melbourne, Austrian technology firm Kapsch TrafficCom and the Victorian Department of Transport. Covering a 2.5 kilometer stretch of Nicholson Street between Alexandra and Victoria Parades, the Intelligent Corridor will use sensors, cloud-based AI, machine learning algorithms, predictive models and real time-data capture to improve traffic management – easing congestion, improving road safety for cars, pedestrians and cyclists, and reducing emissions from clogged traffic. Leveraging different types of traffic sensors already installed by AIMES, the team will fine-tune the Intelligent Corridor over the next three years. The sensors will connect and monitor all parts of the transport environment. Safety metrics will be incorporated in real-time control of traffic signals, derived from traffic safety software developed by Advanced Mobility Analytics Group. AIMES (Australian Integrated Multimodal EcoSystem) is the world’s first and largest ecosystem for testing emerging connected transport technologies at large scale in complex urban environments. It incorporates over 100 kilometers of road network in Melbourne, bounded by Lygon and Hoddle Streets, and Victoria and Alexandra Parades and receives support from the Victorian Department of Transport. The Intelligent Corridor marks a significant new phase, providing a new level of monitoring, with sensors on every intersection and a host of initiatives that will create a world-leading traffic management system. AIMES Director and Professor of Transport Engineering at the University of Melbourne, Professor Majid Sarvi said the Intelligent Corridor will provide a model for cities around the world to reduce the costs of urban congestion. Urban congestion costs the Australian economy $16.5 billion in travel delays every year, according to Infrastructure Australia’s Infrastructure Audit Report 2019. “In Melbourne alone, 492 people lost their lives in crashes at urban intersections – with more than half of these being pedestrians, cyclists or motorcyclists – between 2006 and 2019. Our Intelligent Corridor will use the latest technology to better manage traffic and make our roads safer for everyone,” Professor Sarvi said. The project will collect before-and-after data to demonstrate the Corridor’s effectiveness. Its performance will be fine-tuned to improve outcomes on an ongoing basis over the next three years, thus providing important evidence for implementation in other cities. The Intelligent Corridor will use global technology firm Kapsch TrafficCom's corridor management platform EcoTrafiX™. TrafficCom Executive Vice-President for Asia Pacific, Matthew McLeish said: “From connected vehicles to autonomous driving to integrated mobility management, this technology is laying the groundwork for a sustainable and congestion-free future, utilizing the very best in multi-modal demand management technologies such as the Kapsch EcoTrafiX™ platform.” Director of Signal Services with the Victorian Department of Transport Niloo Karimi, said the Intelligent Corridor was an important and exciting step for Melbourne. “The City has faced an increasing volume of road users over the past few decades, leading to delays and an increasing number of accidents. Now, academic researchers, industry and government will draw on connected transport technology to explore better outcomes and solve issues of safety and congestion to create a safer, cleaner and smarter transport future for Melbourne,” Ms Karimi said. The Intelligent Corridor is supported by a $2 million Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage grant, with contributions from the University of Melbourne and industry partners Kapsch TrafficCom and Advanced Mobility Analytics Group. ARC Acting Chief Executive Officer Judi Zielke said: “The University of Melbourne, Kapsch TrafficCom and the Department of Transport Victoria, through their cooperation and linkages across disciplines, have taken an idea to reduce traffic congestion to a real-life, real-time application.” You can find more information on the Intelligent Corridor and the AIMES project here:

Revenues of EUR 379 million were 1 % below the previous year's level. Earnings attributable to shareholders amounted to EUR -2 million (previous year: EUR -78 million), corresponding to earnings per share of EUR -0.19 (previous year: EUR -6.03). The lower sales for the period were mainly due to the 20% decline in the implementation business. The operations business, on the other hand, increased by 12%, mainly due to projects in South Africa and Bulgaria. The components business continued to suffer from supply chain bottlenecks and declined by 2%. Kapsch TrafficCom achieved a significant reduction of its cost base through restructuring and cost saving measures. This related in particular to material, personnel and other operating expenses. Special effects burdened EBIT in the amount of EUR -16 million (previous year: EUR -90 million). The financial result amounted to EUR -4 million (previous year: EUR -10 million). Tax expenses amounted to EUR 1 million (previous year: tax income of EUR 19 million). The result for the period attributable to shareholders amounted to EUR -2 million (previous year: EUR -78 million), which corresponds to earnings per share of EUR -0.19 (previous year: EUR -6.03). Free cash flow amounted to EUR 9 million in the first three quarters of 2021/22 (previous year: EUR 1 million). Therefore, net debt decreased to EUR -163 million since the last reporting date (March 31, 2021: EUR -170 million). The gearing increased slightly from 200% to 202%. The partial repayments of the promissory note bond and a bank loan from equity had a balance sheet-reducing effect in the first quarter. Total assets amounted to EUR 530 million as of December 31, 2021 (March 31, 2021: EUR 593 million). The equity ratio increased from 14% to 15% in the first three quarters of 2021/22. Segment results for the first three quarters of 2021/22. 72% of revenues were generated by the tolling segment and 28% by the traffic management segment. 56% of revenues were generated in the Europe-Middle East-Africa (EMEA) region, 40% in the Americas region (North, Central and South America) and 4% the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. Tolling segment. Sales decreased by 2% to EUR 273 million. Declines in the implementation business of 23% and in the components business of 2% were not offset by 10% higher revenues in the operations business. The EMEA region made the largest contribution to revenues with EUR 148 million. In total, this region recorded growth of 2%. In the Americas region, revenues declined by 6% to EUR 112 million. In the APAC region, revenues decreased by EUR 2 million to EUR 14 million. Results Tolling Unless otherwise stated, all values in EUR million Q1-Q3 2020/21 Q1-Q3 2021/22 +/- Revenues 279,6 273,1 -2,3 % EBIT -79,7 -0,6 +99,2 %    EBIT margin -28,5 % -0,2 % +28,3 PP EBIT was slightly negative at EUR -1 million (previous year: EUR -80 million). Segment Traffic Management. Revenues increased by 1% to EUR 106 million. This was due in particular to the operations business, which grew by 15%. The largest contribution to revenues was made by the EMEA region with EUR 64 million. In total, this region recorded an increase of 9%. In the Americas region, revenues declined by 10% to EUR 39 million, and in the APAC region, they remained constant at EUR 3 million. Results Traffic Management Unless otherwise stated, all values in EUR million H1 2020/21 H1 2021/22 +/- Umsatz 104,9 106,0 +1,1 % EBIT -9,3 6,5 n.a.    EBIT-Marge -8,9 % 6,1 % +15,0 PP EBIT was positive at EUR 7 million (previous year: EUR -9 million). The EBIT margin was 6% (previous year: ‑9%). Outlook. For the financial year 2021/22, management expects a year-on-year increase in revenues. However, the previously targeted +10% currently appears out of reach. As long as the market environment remains so challenging due to COVID and new business momentum does not increase, double-digit growth rates will be a challenge. Of course, the lower revenue expectation also affects profitability. However, Kapsch TrafficCom cannot further reduce the Group's cost base in the short term without the risk of not being able to take advantage of upcoming growth impulses due to a lack of resources. Thus, until revenues pick up again, the company is in a phase of low profitability. EBIT in financial year 2021/22 (including special items) is expected to be below the previously forecast 3% (but positive). The report on the first three quarters of 2021/22 are scheduled to be available today, from 7:35 a.m. (CET), at: www.kapsch.net/ktc/IR

    Free-flow tolling to become available for New Hampshire drivers

    System integrator Kapsch TrafficCom to convert existing toll zones with all-electronic option. (Duluth, GA – January 11, 2022) The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) has selected Kapsch TrafficCom (Kapsch) to convert three remaining NHDOT toll zones to mainline all-electronic tolling (AET) from mixed-mode payment. This project extends Kapsch’s work scope initially contracted in 2015, in which Kapsch converted NHDOT toll sites at Hampton and Hooksett to provide a free-flow AET option at those toll plazas. The sites Kapsch will convert to AET are at Dover, Rochester, and Bedford, and will each feature single-gantry architecture that contains all tolling equipment. The Kapsch nVDC stereoscopic video sensor will trigger license plate reading (ALPR) cameras while supporting vehicle detection and classification, along with sensors and in-pavement treadles. The Kapsch VRX camera will facilitate video tolling for vehicles that do not have a toll transponder. Drivers will no longer need to stop, slow down, or change lanes at any point along these five sites in order to pay tolls, which will help improve traffic congestion, road safety, and vehicle emissions. As part of the project, Kapsch will also enhance its existing multiprotocol readers (MPR2.3) along NHDOT toll sites, enabling the agency to process all tolling protocols and support the goal of national tolling interoperability. Kapsch is a leading provider of electronic toll collection systems throughout the world, and has provided products and services to NHDOT through the E-ZPass Group since 2005. JB Kendrick, President of Kapsch TrafficCom North America, states: “The introduction of new free-flow traffic lanes at all NHDOT toll sites will offer drivers increased convenience and faster journeys, and we are glad to partner with NHDOT in this effort by expanding our proven AET solution at all the plaza locations.” Kapsch TrafficCom is a globally renowned provider of transportation solutions for sustainable mobility. Innovative solutions in the application fields of tolling, tolling services, traffic management and demand management contribute to a healthy world without congestion. Kapsch has brought projects to fruition in more than 50 countries around the globe.
