Events after the reporting date
• Nothing to report

Comments from Jorgen Nilsson, CEO of Zenterio:
Firstly, I want to start this fourth quarter report 2018 with reporting a positive EBITDA for the quarter and for the full year of 2018. Secondly, another, even larger, milestone has been achieved, marking the next step in the history of Zenterio; we have finalized our 4-year multi- product program for Deutsche Telecom (“DT”) delivering their most sophisticated TV proposition ever launched.

The excellent teamwork between DT, 3rd parties and Zenterio has been a fantastic achievement delivering high quality software rich in features, including key integration of the Netflix and Amazon platforms. We will now build our standard offering based on these achievements for a broader market. This implies no more need for major developments and the end to the complex and low margin part of our business model.

The transformation and restructuring of our company, that we have mentioned in earlier reports, as well as the impact of traditional development resources and contractors have continued during Q4 in parallel with us finishing the achievements mentioned above. The organization is quickly transforming to become a smaller and more nimble company. We now have an opportunity to change our financial constraints by increasing our focus on our major growth areas, Data cloud products and services, by finding new innovative solutions. This includes Android product propositions as well as following market trends with our own value proposition. We have launched a new service delivery structure with focus on Maintenance and Support, On-Site Advisory and In-sourced Technical Engineering offerings. These disciplines are all based on the extremely skilled personnel we have and their ability to address other industries’ development needs. The focus is to establish recurring revenues and to limit customised professional services.

For Zenterio this transformation means no more major dependencies on single large customer programs as well as capitalizing on what we already have. This will enable us to aggressively extend and capitalize new innovative solutions on the Adscribe data analytics platform catered towards more specific target offerings in the video business domain. The key is to quickly establish proof points with this new portfolio and hence demonstrate that our business insights can expand on a broader set of customers, not only TV and Video operators who need to know customer data and to take customer experience and monetization to a new level.

This means that we are leaving our dependency on the traditional Zenterio OS product and its large non-recurring integration services. We will instead expand on the investment we did in acquiring AdScribe. This expansion has been hampered by our needed focus on finalizing our old contracted work – a dependency we are now leaving. This implies that the huge and complex integration service business will be reduced and so will our top line. However, this is for the right reason and we can now finally rebuild the company in a manner that focuses more on shareholder value.

We need to target new customers through the new Sales organization established in the fall and use the new go-to-market model that we will introduce in 2019. This will make us more visible in the market. By spending time where it matters, we will push our new business offerings to scale with speed and, by working closely with target customers finalize our product offerings.

Regarding the financial performance of the quarter we are very pleased to share our result. We had another acceptable quarter with positive EBITDA. Net sales amounted to SEK 55,6 million, -13,9% compared to Q4 2017, mainly based on less professional services. On the EBITDA level, the improvement that started in the beginning of the year continued and resulted in an EBITDA of SEK 5,2 million, impacted by needed restructuring cost of SEK 3,6 million, compared with SEK 11,8 million in Q4 2017. Based on these reported numbers, Zenterio delivered a positive EBITDA full year 2018 of SEK 5,4 million despite SEK 7,6 million of restructuring cost, compared with full year 2017 of SEK 19,6 million. In regard to net sales year over year the result was SEK 236,2 million for full year 2018 compared to full year 2017 of SEK 240,3 million. During this year we have had two major contracted deliveries that have significantly negatively impacted the overall profitability outside the DT program and they are now both finally delivered.

Based on these statements of transformation, management begins 2019 with confidence and will nurture the continued trust in Zenterio as a partner for the future, with solutions that capture industry trends, adding value and innovation for our clients’ customers.
Finally, I would like to thank all employees, key partners and our customers for their fantastic participation in what we have achieved in 2018.

Victoria Eiendom - foreløpig årsregnskap 2018

Company news

2019-02-15 17:51:04

2018 var et tilfredsstillende år for Victoria Eiendom. Verdijustert egenkapital er per 31.12.2018 beregnet til kr 737 per aksje ved verdsettelse av Eiendomsspar aksjen til substansverdi, en økning på 13% fra fjoråret.

Victoria Eiendoms resultat før skatt ble kr 1.380 mill., mot kr 792 mill. i 2017. Økningen skyldes i hovedsak gevinst ved salg av eiendom.

Styret foreslår et ordinært utbytte for 2018 på kr 7,50 per aksje (kr 7,00 per aksje) og et ekstraordinært utbytte på kr 20 per aksje.

2018 var et tilfredsstillende år for Eiendomsspar. Verdijustert egenkapital er per 31.12.2018 beregnet til kr 441 per aksje ved verdsettelse av Pandox aksjen til substansverdi (EPRA NAV), en økning på 11% fra fjoråret.
Eiendomsspars resultat før skatt ble kr 1.195 mill., mot kr 1.286 mill. i 2017. Nedgangen skyldes i hovedsak reduksjon i resultat fra Pandox, forklart av lavere verdiøkning på eiendommer, samt bortfall av salgsgevinster.

Eiendomsspars likviditetsreserve utgjør kr 2.429 mill. (kr 1.815 mill.).

Styret foreslår et ordinært utbytte for 2018 på kr 5,75 per aksje (kr 4,50 per aksje).

Maritime & Merchant Bank ASA (MMBANK) - Financial Report 31-12-2018

Company news

2019-02-14 16:47:53

Maritime & Merchant Bank ASA (M&M) had an operating profit before tax of USD 1.250.045 in its second operational year.
Depreciation and loss allowance (IFRS 9) constitutes USD 2.672.008, thus M&M had a modified operating
result (free cashflow) of USD 3.922.829 in 2018. M&M has not experienced any losses in its operational history.

The activity has generally been high during the year with an increasing inflow of loan applications from our domestic market
and from a growing specter of international customers resulting in a growth in the loan portfolio of disbursed loans from USD
92 mill by end 2017 to USD 249 mill as per 31.12. 2018. M&M is primarily serving the project oriented market and the time
that passes from signing the loan documentation until disbursement may vary quite significantly due to various
operational circumstances beyond our control. M&M would therefore hold a certain order reserve of committed (undisbursed) loans
at any time. All loans granted by M&M are secured by 1st priority mortgages and in addition a collateral package adapted to
the specific project we are financing. Our main focus is to finance standard vessels within the main segments dry bulk,
tankers (crude, product, chemical), container and gas.

We look optimistically into 2019 and for the further growth of our services. M&M will continue to work hard in order to become
the preferred bank for secured project financing in the shipping sector. Our objective is to be a professional partner for our customers
in their work for materializing new projects.

Oslo Børs VPS Holding ASA – 4. kvartal 2018

Company news

2019-02-13 07:56:54

Oslo Børs VPS Holding oppnådde i 4. kvartal 2018 et overskudd på MNOK 77 (MNOK 76). Styret vil ikke fremme forslag om ytterligere utbytte for regnskapsåret 2018.

Inntektene var i kvartalet MNOK 268, MNOK 16 høyere enn i samme periode i fjor. For året sett under ett er økningen MNOK 52. Inntekter fra Oslo Børs og VPS har økt med henholdsvis ca. MNOK 8 og MNOK 7 sammenlignet med samme periode i 2017. For året sett under ett er økningen henholdsvis MNOK 34 og MNOK 14.

Kostnader før aktivering av interne ressurser, avskrivninger og amortisering av merverdier utgjør MNOK 160 i kvartalet, opp MNOK 15 fra samme periode i 2017. For året sett under ett er økningen på MNOK 46. Økningen i kvartalet skyldes i stor grad kostnader i forbindelse med prosjekter i Oslo Børs og VPS. Kostnadene er også påvirket av varsel om at Skatt Øst vil kreve endring av konsernets praksis for fradragsføring av inngående merverdiavgift i fellesregistrering for årene 2015 og 2016. Oslo Børs VPS Holding har bestridt dette, men har av forsiktighetshensyn foretatt en delvis avsetning for den varslede endringen.

Netto finansielle poster er redusert med MNOK 2 fra samme periode i fjor. Endringen skyldes rentekostnader på obligasjonslånet som ble tatt opp i mai.

I 4. kvartal ble tre nye internasjonale aktører kunder og direktemedlemmer i VPS; Clearstream Banking S.A., SIX SIS AG og Citbank Europe Plc. Kundebasen i VPS blir i økende grad internasjonal.

Euronext N.V fremsatte den 14. januar 2019 tilbud om kjøp av samtlige utstående aksjer i Oslo Børs VPS Holding ASA. Nasdaq AB fremsatte den 4. februar 2019 tilbud om kjøp av samtlige utestående aksjer i Oslo Børs VPS Holding ASA. Det fremgår av begge de fremsatte tilbudene at eventuell utdeling av utbytte vil medføre justering i tilbudsprisen. Renteelementene som inngår i tilbudene vil også påvirkes av eventuelle utbytteutdelinger. Styret er derfor av den oppfatning at det pt. ikke er hensiktsmessig å foreslå utdeling av ytterligere utbytte for 2018 for generalforsamlingen.
Implementering av IFRS 16 i 2019 forventes å medføre en balanseføring av eiendel og forpliktelser på MNOK 63. Leiekostnader på ca MNOK 13 vil erstattes av avskrivninger på ca MNOK 13 og rentekostnader på MNOK 2.

Oslo Børs VPS forventer at inntekter i 2019 vil utgjøre MNOK 1.081. Konsernets driftskostnader før avskrivninger og amortiseringer forventes å utgjøre MNOK 557 i 2019 (lønns- og personalkostnader på MNOK 332 og andre driftskostnader på MNOK 225). Dette inkluderer kostnader ifbm den pågående tilbudsprosessen.

Oslo Børs VPS Holding ASA – 4th quarter 2018

Company news

2019-02-13 07:55:17

Oslo Børs VPS Holding reports a profit of NOK 77 million for the fourth quarter of 2018 (NOK 76 million). The Board of Directors will not propose the payment of a further dividend for the 2018 accounting year.

Reported revenue for the fourth quarter of 2018 was NOK 268 million, which is NOK 16 million higher than in the fourth quarter of 2017. Reported revenue for 2018 as a whole was NOK 52 million higher than in 2017. Revenue from Oslo Børs and VPS increased by approximately NOK 8 million and NOK 7 million respectively compared with the fourth quarter of 2017, while for 2018 as a whole revenue from Oslo Børs and VPS increased by NOK 34 million and NOK 14 million respectively.

Operating expenses before capitalisation of internal costs, depreciation and amortisation of excess value amounted to NOK 160 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, an increase of NOK 15 million from the fourth quarter of 2017. For 2018 as a whole, operating expenses before capitalisation of internal costs, depreciation and amortisation of excess value were NOK 46 million higher than in 2017. The increase in the quarter was principally due to costs in connection with projects at Oslo Børs and VPS. The Group’s operating expenses were also affected by the notification that Tax East (one of the regional offices of the Norwegian Tax Administration) will require the group to change its practice of deducting input value-added tax in a joint registration for the years 2015 and 2016. Oslo Børs VPS Holding has disputed this but has made a proportionate provision in its accounts for the change for the sake of prudence.

Net financial income for the fourth quarter of 2018 was NOK 2 million lower than in the same period in 2017. The change was due to interest expense on the bond loan that the group issued in May.

In the fourth quarter, three new international companies became customers and direct members of VPS, namely Clearstream Banking S.A., SIX SIS AG and Citibank Europe Plc. VPS’s customer base is becoming increasingly international.

The offers put forward by Euronext NV and Nasdaq AB state that the distribution of any dividend will result in their offer price being adjusted. The interest payments that form part of the offers will also be affected by any dividend payments. The Board of Directors is therefore of the opinion that it is currently not appropriate for it to propose the payment of a further dividend for 2018 for approval by the Annual General Meeting.

Implementing IFRS 16 in 2019 is expected to lead to assets and liabilities of NOK 63 million being recognised on the balance sheet. Leasing costs of approximately NOK 13 million will be replaced by depreciation of approximately NOK 13 million and interest expense of NOK 2 million.

Oslo Børs VPS expects its 2019 revenues to total NOK 1,081 million. The group’s operating expenses before depreciation and amortisation are expected to be around NOK 557 million in 2019 (salary and personnel costs of NOK 332 million and other operating expenses of NOK 225 million). This includes costs associated with the current offer process.
