Preliminary results of the financial year 2019/20 clearly below expectations; proposed dividend reduced.

15:46 CEST The preliminary financial results for financial year 2019/20 show revenues of approximately EUR 731 million, hence, below guidance. The operating result (“EBIT”) is expected to come out at about EUR -38 million. Excluding one-off effects of about EUR -39 million, the expected EBIT would have been slightly positive. The one-off effects comprise: Impairments based on updated forecasts regarding the further business in Zambia (about EUR -27 million,) write-downs relating to the early termination of the German infrastructure charge projects (about EUR -7 million) as well as expenses to end the business activities of Streetline (about EUR -3 million) and regarding the ending of operations of the toll project in Czech Republic (about EUR -2 million). Other one-off effects (net) are expected to amount to EUR -1 million. In the operative business, significant additional costs for the challenging implementation of new software applications into existing customer systems caused major cost overruns. The negative share price development of a financial investment (15.4% stake in Q-Free ASA, Norway) had an impact of about EUR -6 million on the financial result. Furthermore, exchange rate turbulences towards the end of the financial year caused (almost exclusively unrealized) exchange rate losses of presumably about EUR -9 million. Due to the weak result for the period and as far as legally permissible, the Executive Board intends to propose a reduced dividend of presumably EUR 0.25 per share to the Annual General Meeting. For financial year 2020/21, the management expects the EBIT to be clearly positive again. Due to the current global situation (SARS-CoV-2), no concrete guidance can be given for the time being. Kapsch TrafficCom will announce the final results for the financial year 2019/20 on June 16, 2020.

Kapsch TrafficCom wins major project in the USA.

17:33 CET Kapsch TrafficCom is supplier to Plenary Infrastructure Belle Chasse LLC, a consortium just awarded by the Louisiana Department of Transport and Development with the Belle Chasse Bridge & Tunnel Replacement Public-Private Partnership Project. Kapsch TrafficCom will provide the consortium with tolling technology and operate and maintain the toll system. Implementation activities are scheduled to commence in 2023 followed by 30 years of technical and commercial operations. The project volume for Kapsch TrafficCom is estimated to be more than 100M USD over the 30 year term. The overall project entails the building of a four-lane bridge to replace the current traffic infrastructure (a bridge and a tunnel). The newly constructed bridge includes a modern all-electronic tolling technology (which does not require toll booths), as part of the first Private, Public, Partnership (P3) project in the state. The awarded consortium will recoup its investment through tolls paid by motorists using the new bridge. The project is scheduled to start in January 2020 and has a total term of approximately 34 years, just over 4 years to build the bridge and 30 years of operations and maintenance.
