Regulatory News:

Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 - GTO), the world leader in digital security today announces its revenue for the third quarter of 2018.

Total   727   751   (3%)   (3%)
 

Philippe Vallée, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “As expected, Gemalto’s third quarter revenue was slightly lower as large programs in both the Governments and Cybersecurity businesses are being delivered in the fourth quarter of 2018.

In parallel, Gemalto recorded a strong increase in deployments of its secure connectivity solutions for IoT industrial applications. In the Smartcards & Issuance segment, the Payment business posted a solid performance driven by the first EMV renewal campaigns in the US and strong payment card deployments across other regions. The recent Apple announcement introducing eSIM technology in its new generation of iPhones was an important milestone. It should trigger an acceleration in the rate of activations that will benefit Gemalto’s eSIM solutions with Mobile Network Operators.

As we progress toward the end of the year, leveraging the traditional fourth quarter momentum and benefiting from the adjustments made to our cost base, we are confident in achieving our 2018 outlook.”

Basis of preparation of financial information

Segment information

The Identity, IoT & Cybersecurity segment comprises businesses associated with homeland security for governments (“Governments”), IoT connectivity for industrial applications (“IoT”) and cybersecurity for enterprises (“Cybersecurity”).

The Smartcards & Issuance segment comprises businesses mainly associated with removable SIM cards (“SIM”), payment cards (“Payment”) and their issuance services. The segment includes as well businesses associated to the digital transformation of smart cards (“Digital”) such as digital payment, digital banking, remote subscription management, embedded SIM/MIM and embedded secure elements. Patents business is also included in this segment.

Historical exchange rates and constant currency figures

The Company sells its products and services in a very large number of countries and is commonly remunerated in other currencies than the Euro. Fluctuations in these other currencies exchange rates against the Euro have in particular a translation impact on the reported Euro value of the Company revenues. Comparisons at constant exchange rates aim at eliminating the effect of currencies translation movements on the analysis of the Group revenue by translating prior-year revenues at the same average exchange rate as applied in the current year. Revenue variations are at constant exchange rates and include the impact of currencies variation hedging program, except where otherwise noted. All other figures in this press release are at historical exchange rates, except where otherwise noted.

Adjusted income statement and profit from operations (PFO) non-GAAP measure

The consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and with section 2:362(9) of the Netherlands Civil Code.

To better assess its past and future performance, the Company also prepares an adjusted income statement where the key metric used to evaluate the business and make operating decisions over the period 2010 to 2018 is the profit from operations (PFO).

PFO is a non-GAAP measure defined as IFRS operating profit adjusted for (i) the amortization and impairment of intangibles resulting from acquisitions, (ii) restructuring and acquisition-related expenses, (iii) all equity-based compensation charges and associated costs; and (iv) fair value adjustments upon business acquisitions. These items are further explained as follows:

  • Amortization, and impairment of intangibles resulting from acquisitions are defined as the amortization, and impairment expenses related to intangibles assets and goodwill recognized as part of the allocation of the excess purchase consideration over the share of net assets acquired.
  • Restructuring and acquisitions-related expenses are defined as (i) restructuring expenses which are the costs incurred in connection with a restructuring as defined in accordance with the provisions of IAS 37 (e.g. sale or termination of a business, closure of a plant,…), and consequent costs; (ii) reorganization expenses defined as the costs incurred in connection with headcount reductions, consolidation of manufacturing and offices sites, as well as the rationalization and harmonization of the product and service portfolio and the integration of IT systems, consequent to a business combination; and (iii) transaction costs (such as fees paid as part of an acquisition process).
  • Equity-based compensation charges are defined as (i) the discount granted to employees acquiring Gemalto shares under Gemalto Employee Stock Purchase plans; (ii) the amortization of the fair value of stock options and restricted share units granted by the Board of Directors to employees; and the related costs.
  • Fair value adjustments over net assets acquired are defined as the reversal, in the income statement, of the fair value adjustments recognized as a result of a business combination, as prescribed by IFRS3R. Those adjustments are mainly associated with (i) the amortization expense related to the step-up of the acquired work-in-progress and finished goods assumed at their realizable value and (ii) the amortization of the cancelled commercial margin related to deferred revenue balance acquired.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable IFRS measures and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS.

In the adjusted income statement, Operating Expenses are defined as the sum of Research and Engineering expenses, Sales and Marketing expenses, General and Administrative expenses, and Other income (expense) net.

EBITDA is defined as PFO plus depreciation and amortization expenses, excluding the above amortization and impairment of intangibles resulting from acquisitions.

Net debt and net cash

Net debt is a non IFRS measure defined as total borrowings net of cash and cash equivalents. Net cash is a non IFRS measure defined as cash and cash equivalents net of total borrowings.

All figures presented in this press release are unaudited.

Segment information

Gemalto posted revenue of €727 million, lower by (3%) both at constant exchange rates and historical exchange rates from the same period of last year. The contributions to the Company’s total revenue were respectively 47% for the Identity, IoT & Cybersecurity segment and 53% for the Smartcards & Issuance segment.

Revenue 345 348 (1%)
 

The Identity, IoT & Cybersecurity segment’s revenue came in at €345 million, down (1%) compared to the previous year as large programs in both the Governments and Cybersecurity businesses are being delivered in the fourth quarter of 2018. The segment year-to-date revenue reached €989 million, increasing +12% compared with the same period of last year.

The Governments business revenue declined in the third quarter compared with the same period of last year with significant e-documents programs rolling out in the US and Latin America in the fourth quarter of 2018, together with the first deliveries of the UK passport. In the third quarter, Gemalto was selected by the state of Georgia in the US for the supply of driver’s license solution. The solution comprises an advanced enrollment system that includes photo and signature capture. The driving license will use premium polycarbonate including Multiple Laser Images (MLIs) to reduce document forgery and protect against identity fraud. This program win is another example of the depth and completeness of Gemalto offers for Governments to protect their citizens’ identities.

The Cybersecurity business revenue was slightly down this quarter as several encryption program deployments notably in Europe and the US are also taking place in the fourth quarter of 2018. The software monetization and authentication sub-business lines posted a solid performance. As part of its cloud offer, Gemalto announced this quarter the launch of its next-generation key management solution, SafeNet Virtual KeySecure. This innovative solution integrated with leading cloud service providers such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM cloud and VMware provides companies with a single key management solution spanning multiple private or public cloud environments. As a result, companies can extend their data protection policies to private and public clouds and centralize encryption and key management operations across multiple cloud environments. Companies can also improve key security and audit process by retaining ownership and control of encryption keys.

The IoT business posted another very strong performance in this quarter. The increase was driven by strong deliveries in Europe and Asia to large customers in Automotive, Health, Payment and Metering sectors. This quarter performance once again reflects the strong fit of Gemalto’s offers with the highly challenging requirements of fast developing IoT industrial applications.

Smartcards & Issuance

exchange rates

Revenue 382 403 (4%)
 

The Smartcards & Issuance segment posted revenue of €382 million, (4%) lower at constant exchange rates.

The Payment business posted a solid performance this quarter on the back of strong sales in the US driven by the first EMV renewal campaigns and strong payment card deployments across other regions. The SIM business declined this quarter due to the continued market erosion and the full effect of the exit of a specific low-end market. In line with the profit margin objectives for the segment, low profit margin opportunities in both SIM and Payment businesses were dismissed in several Asian countries.

The Digital business enjoyed solid revenue growth, essentially driven by large deployments in Europe of authentication solutions that are part of the digital banking sub-business line. Following the recent Apple announcement introducing eSIM technology in its new generation of iPhones, the need for remote subscription management solutions (On Demand Connectivity) is rising. Mobile Network Operators are stepping up their infrastructure readiness to offer users the choice of activating their new generation iPhones either through a removable SIM or an eSIM. This should in turn trigger an acceleration in the rate of activations that will benefit Gemalto’s eSIM solutions with Mobile Network Operators.

Thales combination

In December 2017 Thales and Gemalto reached an agreement on a recommended all-cash offer for all issued and outstanding ordinary shares of Gemalto. This offer was launched on March 27, 2018. We are working together with Thales towards achieving the regulatory and antitrust approvals required to complete the transaction. The transaction is currently expected to close in the first quarter of 2019, after Thales has secured all customary regulatory approvals and clearances. More information on the Thales offer and the integration, including the offer document and related press releases, can be found on our website at Public Offer by Thales .

2018 full year outlook confirmed

  • Double digit revenue growth expected in the Identity, IoT & Cybersecurity segment
  • Stable PFO margin expected in the Smartcards & Issuance segment
  • Mid to High single digit growth in profit from operations expected at Gemalto level
