Interim report Q3 2022 (July 1 - September 30)
(All figures in brackets refer to the corresponding period in 2021)

Q3: Flat topline. Reduced earnings in Q3 due to sales mix.

CEO Torben Paulin:
“During Q3 and in particular towards the end of the quarter, the sales mix in TCM Group developed negatively with lower than expected B2C sales while B2B sales, albeit closer to expectations, mainly consisted of lower margin project based sales. In consequence, total revenue in Q3 was realised somewhat below expectations, with earnings being significantly lower than expected. Revenue in Q3 was DKK 265 million (DKK 262 million) corresponding to a growth of 1%. Adjusted EBIT in Q3 ended DKK 21 million (DKK 32 million).

As communicated in the company announcement October 20th we have lowered our guidance for both full year revenue and earnings. Based on the lower than expected sales and earnings in Q3 and given that an unfavorable sales mix is also expected in Q4, we estimate a full year revenue to be in the range DKK 1,120-1,160 million and a full year adjusted EBIT in the range DKK 100-130 million.

We have already undertaken a number of actions to address the situation and ensure the profitability of TCM Group going forward. To adjust production capacity and increase efficiency in the manufacturing process we decided to close down the third (night) shift at the Tvis facility from mid September. This will both cut costs and increase the operational efficiency of the company. In addition a reduction in the administrative staff of 10 FTEs was implemented in September. In view of the development, concrete actions to further improve efficiency and reduce costs have been initiated. Production capacity will be adjusted as needed. In order to combat the effect of rising energy costs in the new year, a further sales price increase with effect from December 2022 has been announced.

Given the current macro-economic uncertainty, we have chosen not to exercise the mandate to distribute an extraordinary dividend provided on the Annual General Meeting in April.”
