Company announcement October 25, 2018

Performance highlights for the first nine months of 2018

  • Revenue from the international life sciences, public and enterprise customers all increased by more than 20%. However, due to a decline in revenue from the Novo Nordisk Group of 7.6% and finance customer group of 4.9% total revenue increased by 5.4% in reported currencies
  • The share of revenue from the life sciences (excl. Novo Nordisk Group), enterprise, public and finance customer groups increased from 58% in 9M 2017 to 63% in 9M 2018, thereby reducing the dependency on the Novo Nordisk Group
  • Operating profit margin was 9.2% in 9M 2018 in reported currencies compared to 7.9% in 9M 2017, which was impacted by a one-off settlement of DKK 33m in the public customer group
  • Net profit of DKK 151m in 9M 2018 compared to DKK 126m in 9M 2017
  • Free cash flow for 9M 2018 was DKK 116m compared to negative DKK 14m in 9M 2017
  • Order backlog for 2018 at the beginning of Q4 2018 was DKK 2,846m, an increase of 5.0% compared to the same time last year. The backlog for the following two years increased by 9.8%
  • Outlook for 2018:
  • Expected revenue growth of 4-7% in constant currencies (changed with the company announcement 9/2018 on October 9, 2018 regarding the acquisition of Valiance Partners)
  • Expected operating profit margin of 10-10.5% in constant currencies is maintained
  • The expected level of investments in 2018 is 5-7% of total revenue
    (previously 6-8%)

Per Kogut, CEO at NNIT comments: “I am pleased to see continued strong revenue growth from the international life sciences, enterprise and public customer groups, all growing with more than 20% in 9M 2018. With the acquisition of the fast-growing IT-service provider to the international life sciences industry, Valiance Partners, and the solid 9M 2018 revenue development we have recently been able to increase our full year revenue guidance to 4-7% from previously 3-6%.”
