Q2 2021 IFRS financial results

Revenues in Q2 2021 reached EUR 149.4 million, up by 3.4% from EUR 144.5 million in Q1 2021, also up by 3.0% compared to EUR 145.0 million in Q2 2020. As in the first quarter of the fiscal year, this success was particularly due to high order volume from communication service providers as well as private enterprises and governments.

Pro forma gross profit in Q2 2021 increased by 3.5%, reaching EUR 57.3 million (38.3% of revenues) compared to EUR 55.3 million (38.3% of revenues) in Q1 2021 and increased considerably by 14.1% compared to EUR 50.2 million (34.6% of revenues) reported in Q2 2020. Software and service revenue contribution was strong, and the customer and product mix also supported the gross margin growth.

Pro forma operating income for Q2 2021 was EUR 14.4 million (9.7% of revenues) and increased by 12.1% compared to EUR 12.9 million (8.9% of revenues) reported in Q1 2021. Compared to Q2 2020, pro forma operating income improved significantly by 42.6% from EUR 10.1 million (7.0% of revenues).

Operating income for Q2 2021 of EUR 13.0 million increased by 12.6% from EUR 11.6 million reported for Q1 2021 and significantly increased by 50.6% from EUR 8.7 million in Q2 2020.

Net income reached EUR 12.0 million in Q2 2021, up by 6.9% from EUR 11.2 million in Q1 2021, and significantly up by 57.3% from EUR 7.6 million in Q2 2020.

The company’s cash and cash equivalents totaled EUR 85.0 million, representing an increase of EUR 5.9 million compared to EUR 79.1 million at the end of Q1 2021. Year-over-year cash and cash equivalents substantially increased by EUR 17.4 million from EUR 67.6 million at the end of Q2 2020.

Net cash at the end of Q2 2021 stood at EUR 3.9 million when compared to net debt positions of EUR 10.6 million at the end of Q1 2021 or EUR 44.9 million at the end of Q2 2020, respectively. Thus, Q2 2021 was the first quarter showing a net cash position since the introduction of the accounting standard IFRS 16.

Net working capital at quarter-end was EUR 132.8 million and increased by EUR 7.0 million compared to EUR 125.8 million at the end of Q1 2021.

Management commentary

“We continue to grow our business, showing profits and building our financial resources,” said Brian Protiva, CEO, ADVA. “The macro-environment for our industry continues to be good. The digitization efforts in many global regions are in full swing, and the expansion of communication infrastructure is moving at speed. Security is on the top of our customers’ digital agenda, and we are sharpening our profile as the supplier of choice for trusted network infrastructure. With a record-level order backlog, we will continue to use all of our strengths to produce results that allow us to be a leader in a consolidating market.”

“The second quarter of 2021 marked another record quarter in terms of profitability. While continuing to execute our business transformation strategy, we were able to absorb higher purchase prices of components due to the semiconductor crisis and reached a pro forma EBIT of 9.7%,” commented Uli Dopfer, CFO, ADVA. “Also, cash generation was once again very positive. Despite debt repayments of EUR 7.5 million, we were able to increase cash by EUR 6 million and now report a net cash position of EUR 3.9 million also when applying IFRS 16. With that strong first six months in the bank, I am encouraged that we will manage the current supply bottlenecks and reach for the full year a pro forma EBIT between 7% and 10% of revenues.”

Financial outlook 2021

For the fiscal year 2021, ADVA expects revenues to be in the range of EUR 580 million and EUR 610 million and a pro forma operating income of between 7.0% and 10.0% of revenues.

The company will publish its financial results for Q3 2021 on October 21, 2021.
