Financial guidance for 2011 reiterated.

President and CEO Pertti Korhonen:
'The positive market sentiment continued throughout the first half of 2011 supported by the long-term metals demand projections and historically high metal prices. The activity was especially high in gold, base metals, aluminum and iron industries. I am very pleased with our record-high order intake in the second quarter, which has led to an all-time high order backlog at the end of the reporting period. New orders in the second quarter include the design and turnkey delivery of the world's largest iron ore pelletizing plant for Samarco Mineração in Brazil. Services sales continued to grow strongly and was 30% higher than in the comparison period. Our operating profit more than doubled from the first half of 2010. The quarterly fluctuation of the operating profit was due to normal revenue and profit recognition timing patterns inherent in the project deliveries, and unrealized and realized foreign exchange gains and losses. Our cash flow was good thanks to the advance payments and the company's financial position has remained solid, putting us in a good position to further expand our technology base and business through acquisitions. Despite the turbulences of the financial markets in Europe and USA, Outotec's market outlook has remained good - as substantiated by the several large orders we have announced in July - and due to the fact that approximately two-thirds of Outotec's sales comes from emerging markets. In order to fulfill the strong demand for Outotec's solutions and services, and to meet our growth aspirations, we continued to recruit new professionals.'

INTERIM REPORT JANUARY-JUNE 2011

OPERATING ENVIRONMENT

The overall market activity remained high in the reporting period. The mining and metals industry's investments were supported by the positive long-term outlook for metals demand and historically very high metals prices. Production capacity utilization rates continued to be good increasing the demand for spare parts and services. Markets in South America, Australia and India were particularly strong, but activity also picked up in Russia and the Middle East. In terms of metals, the strongest activity was seen in copper, gold and iron projects; however, zinc and aluminum projects also advanced. The market for sulfuric acid technology remained good as well due to investment activity in copper projects and high production levels. In some technology areas, the workload for internal experts was high due to intensive sales and proposal activity. In addition, there were some signs that delivery times in some areas of the subcontractor network started to lengthen, yet remaining well below the levels of the last up-cycle. In addition to minerals and metals processing solutions, there was strong customer activity around alternative energy, industrial water treatment and environmental solution projects.
The financial market has remained functional despite global turbulence. Furthermore, financial institutions have been willing to provide funding in emerging and developing markets. In addition, high metals prices coupled with the ensuing strong cash flows, have been supporting Outotec's customers in financing of new projects.
Interest in sustainable solutions continues to gain momentum as the legislation to restrict the use of inefficient plants and processes intensifies. The sustainability trend is positive for Outotec, since the company delivers advanced technology solutions allowing customers to minimize their life time costs for processes as well as their environmental impacts while maximizing the recovery of valuable materials.

ORDER INTAKE

Order intake in the reporting period amounted to EUR 875.7 million (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR 769.1 million) including plant deliveries, technology and equipment deliveries as well as services. In the reporting period, orders from EMEA (Europe including CIS, Middle East and Africa) represented roughly 40%, Americas 40% and Asia Pacific 20% of the total order intake. The orders received in the second quarter of 2011 totaled EUR 532.1 million, which is 52% higher than in the comparison period (Q2/2010: EUR 349.7 million).

Major new orders in the second quarter:

  • gold recovery technology for Petropavlovsk Group's JSC Pokrovskiy Mine, Russia (value not disclosed); 

  • copper flash smelting technology for National Iranian Copper Industries Company, Iran (EUR 61 million); and 

  • iron ore pelletizing plant for Samarco Mineração, Brazil (EUR 200 million). 

 

Major new orders in the first quarter:

  • copper flash smelting furnace and related services together with SNC-Lavalin for RTB Bor, Serbia (EUR 60 million); 

  • oil shale preparation plant for Eesti Energia, Estonia (EUR 20 million); 

  • effluent treatment plant for Codelco, Chile (EUR 18 million); and 

  • key process technologies and services for a copper/gold concentrator for Sandfire Resources, Australia (EUR 15 million).  

 

ORDER BACKLOG

The order backlog at the end of the reporting period was record-high and totaled EUR 1,664.1 million, which is 27% higher than at the end of the comparison period (June 30, 2010: EUR 1,310.1 million).

At the end of the reporting period, Outotec had 26 projects with an order backlog value in excess of EUR 10 million, accounting for 64% of the total backlog. Management estimates that roughly 42% (approximately EUR 700 million) of the June-end backlog value will be delivered in 2011 and the rest in 2012 and beyond. At the end of the reporting period the order backlog included roughly EUR 20 million (June 30, 2010: EUR 60 million) in suspended projects.

SALES AND FINANCIAL RESULT

Sales in the reporting period totaled EUR 536.0 million (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR 410.8 million), a 30% increase from the comparison period. Currencies did not have any material effect on sales growth which resulted from a strong opening backlog for 2011 and good progress in project deliveries especially in the Non-ferrous Solutions business area. Also the Ferrous Solutions business area returned to a growth track. Sales for the second quarter totaled EUR 288.4 million (Q2/2010: EUR 223.8 million).

Sales in the Services business, which is included in the sales figures for the three reporting segments, totaled EUR 146.7 million in the reporting period (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR 112.5 million), up 30% from the comparison period and accounting for 27% of Outotec's sales (Q1-Q2/2010: 27%). The sales volume for the Services business in the second quarter totaled EUR 75.6 million (Q2/2010: EUR 62.0 million).

Operating profit from business operations for the reporting period was EUR 32.3 million (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR 14.9 million), representing 6.0% of sales (Q1-Q2/2010: 3.6%). The increase resulted from a higher sales volume especially in the Non-ferrous Solutions business area. In addition, unrealized and realized exchange gains related to currency forward contracts increased profitability by EUR 4.8 million (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR -1.4 million). PPA amortizations for the reporting period were EUR 2.4 million (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR 5.6 million). Operating profit for the reporting period was EUR 29.8 million (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR -4.6 million). Operating profit from business operations in the second quarter of 2011 was EUR 12.1 million (Q2/2010: EUR 11.3 million), representing 4.2% of sales (Q2/2010: 5.1%). The margin was affected by timing of the project executions including fewer project completions during the reporting period as well as higher fixed costs related to long term growth targets.

Fixed costs for the reporting period were EUR 101.0 million (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR 92.3 million). The increase was primarily due to investments in developing and deploying Outotec's global operational model, personnel increases supporting the growth especially related to the development of its service and supply organizations, fixed costs of acquired companies, business development projects and costs of the share-based incentive program. Profit before taxes for the reporting period was EUR 29.2 million (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR -4.6 million). It included net finance expense of EUR 0.6 million (Q1-Q2/2010: net finance income EUR 0.0 million). The net finance expense increased due to changes in financial instruments' market valuation and interest and fees related to the new financing facilities. Net profit for the reporting period was EUR 20.4 million (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR -3.2 million). Taxes totaled EUR 8.8 million (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR 1.4 million positive). Earnings per share were EUR 0.45 (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR -0.07). Earnings per share in the comparison period of 2010 was impacted by the one-time costs related to the cost savings program.

Outotec's return on equity for the reporting period was 11.8% (Q1-Q2/2010: -2.0%), and return on investment was 16.6% (Q1-Q2/2010: -2.9%).

Non-ferrous Solutions

Sales in the Non-ferrous Solutions business area in the reporting period increased 39% over the comparison period and totaled EUR 353.4 million (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR 254.8 million). The increase in sales was due to a strong starting order backlog for the year, continued strong order intake, growth of service business sales and good progress in deliveries during the reporting period. Operating profit from business operations was EUR 32.8 million (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR 5.9 million) and operating profit was EUR 30.7 million (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR -10.6 million). The unrealized and realized exchange gains related to currency forward contracts increased profitability by EUR 4.2 million (Q1-Q2/2010: unrealized and realized loss of EUR 3.4 million). The operating profit increase was due to the higher sales and solid project execution.

Ferrous Solutions

Sales in the Ferrous Solutions business area in the reporting period totaled EUR 86.3 million (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR 52.9 million). The 63% increase in sales compared to 2010 was due to the execution of long-term projects from the backlog.

The operating profit was impacted by higher expenses related to the sales and offering work in large turnkey projects, such as the Samarco Mineração project in Brazil announced in June.

Energy, Light Metals and Environmental Solutions

Sales in the Energy, Light Metals and Environmental Solutions business area in the reporting period totaled EUR 103.8 million (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR 107.2 million). The decline in sales was mainly due to the timing of revenue recognition of long-term projects. Operating profit from business operations was EUR 8.9 million (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR 13.0 million) and operating profit was EUR 8.6 million (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR 11.9 million). The comparison period's operating profit was improved by the release of project provisions related to successful project completions.

Outotec's working capital amounted to EUR -196.5 million at the end of the reporting period (June 30, 2010: EUR -107.8 million). Working capital developed positively due to advance payments related to projects under execution and new orders received.

At the end of the reporting period, Outotec's cash and cash equivalents totaled EUR 313.5 million (June 30, 2010: EUR 220.9 million). The cash and cash equivalents was also affected by the dividend payment of EUR 34.3 million (EUR 0.75 per share) in April 2011 (April 2010: EUR 32.0 million).

In the reporting period, salaries and other employee benefits totaled EUR 133.2 million (Q1-Q2/2010: EUR 106.8 million). The increase from the comparison period was due to wage inflation, bonuses and share-based incentive programs as well as personnel increases.

SHARE-BASED INCENTIVE PROGRAMS AND EXECUTIVE BOARD SHARE OWNERSHIP PLAN

Share-based Incentive Program 2010-2012

Outotec's board of directors decided on April 23, 2010 to adopt a share-based incentive program for the company's key personnel. The program incorporates three earning periods: calendar years 2010, 2011 and 2012. The board of directors determines the amount of the maximum reward for each individual, the earning criteria and the targets established for them separately on an annual basis. The maximum value of the rewards for the entire program equals approximately 1,000,000 shares, including a cash payment which equals income taxes. 

Earning period 2010

The reward paid to 68 individuals was determined by reaching the targets set by the board of directors for cost savings, order intake and earnings per share. The total reward for the 2010 earning period was EUR 9.8 million with 138,144 shares allocated and EUR 6.1 million paid in cash to cover income taxes.

The total reward paid to president and CEO Pertti Korhonen totaled EUR 876,796.08 (9,824 shares and cash to cover income taxes).

As part of the plan, the executive board members established Outotec Management Oy company, whose entire share capital is owned by them. The purpose of the plan is to commit executive board members to Outotec by encouraging them to acquire and hold Outotec shares and thus increase the company's shareholder value in the long run. They invest a considerable amount of their own funds in company shares and partly through a loan provided by Outotec. The company's board of directors granted to Outotec Management Oy an interest-bearing loan at the maximum amount of EUR 4,980,000 to finance the acquisition of the Outotec shares.

The order will be booked in the third quarter order intake.

On July 14, 2011 Outotec announced that it had agreed with Ma'aden Bauxite Alumina Company, a joint venture between Saudi Arabian Mining Company (Ma'aden) and Alcoa in Saudi Arabia, to deliver two calciners to the joint venture's integrated aluminum complex at Ras Al Khair (formerly Ras Az Zawr), Saudi Arabia. The overall price for the calciners is approximately EUR 62 million, of which roughly EUR 50 million will be booked in Outotec's order intake in the third quarter.

On July 15, 2011 Outotec announced that it had signed signed a contract with ZAO Miheevsky GOK, a subsidiary of Russian Copper Company, for the design and delivery of a new copper concentrator for the Miheevsky porphyry-copper project located in Chelyabinsk, Russia.

On July 18, 2011 Outotec announced that it had signed a contract with OJSC Almalyk Mining & Metallurgical Company (AMMC) for the design and delivery of a gas cleaning and sulfuric acid plant to AMMC's existing copper production facilities, located near Almalyk, Uzbekistan. The contract is valued at approximately EUR 30 million.

SHORT-TERM RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES

Risks related to the global operating environment

Outotec's global business operations are subject to various political, economic and social conditions. Operations in global markets may present risks related to economic and political instability. Turbulence in financial markets and the potential escalation of sovereign debt may have a severe negative impact on global economy and mining companies' project financing. Conditions may rapidly change and create delays and changes in order placement and execution.

Risks related to Outotec's business

As part of the overall project delivery, Outotec gives performance guarantees and is liable for the warranty period defects. In the project risk assessment during the reporting period, all unfinished projects were evaluated and provisions for performance guarantees and warranty period guarantees were updated. There were no material changes in the Group's project risk provisions.

Global economic uncertainty may reduce the demand for Outotec's products and services. Volatility in sales may affect the operating profit margin since the adjustments in fixed costs may become effective with a delay. Outotec's gross margin is also impacted by product mix. Particularly orders which include license fees may have a major impact on the gross margin. Changes in labor costs, especially when operating in high inflationary countries, as well as changes in raw materials and subcontracting prices and the availability of components can affect Outotec's profitability. Outotec hedges these risks mostly contractually.

The nature of international project business, different interpretations of international and local tax rules and regulations may cause additional direct or indirect taxes for Outotec, which would reduce the company's net result.

Acquisitions are an integral part of Outotec's growth strategy. There is a risk that the estimated synergy benefits will not materialize as planned.

Outotec is involved in a few arbitral and court proceedings. Management expects that these cases and their outcomes will have no material effect on Outotec's financial result.

There is a risk that customers and suppliers may experience financial difficulties and a lack of financing may result in project and payment delays as well as bankruptcies, which can also result in losses for Outotec. These risks are reduced by advance and milestone payments as well as letters of credit. In the reporting period, there were no material credit losses related to payments by Outotec's counter-parties and at the end of the reporting period all receivables were reviewed and credit loss provisions were updated.

Outotec's business model is based primarily on customer advance payments and on-demand guarantees issued by Outotec's relationship banks. Changes in advance payments received due to e.g. change in business volume have an impact on the company's liquidity. Exposure to on-demand guarantees has remained high. Cash held by the company is primarily invested in short-term bank deposits and in Finnish corporate short-term certificates of deposit. The lower interest rate levels reduce the interest income generated from these investments.

More than half of Outotec's total cash flow is denominated in euros. The rest is divided among various currencies, including the Australian dollar, US dollar, Brazilian real, Canadian dollar, and South African rand. The weight of any given currency in new projects can fluctuate substantially, but most cash-flow-related risks are hedged in the short- and long-term. In the short-term, currency fluctuations may create volatility in the operating profit. The forecasted and probable cash flows are selectively hedged and are always on the basis of separate decisions and risk analysis. Natural hedging is used as widely as possible and the remaining open foreign exchange exposures related to committed cash flows are fully hedged using forward agreements. The cost of hedging is taken into account in project pricing.

MARKET OUTLOOK

The strong market activity is expected to continue based on the long-term metals demand projections, high metals prices, declining ore grades and tightening environmental regulations. The order pipeline is strong since several mining and metals companies are still in the process of re-activating projects that were put on hold during the downturn. Project financing availability has improved, especially for companies with good cash flows and investments in projects in the emerging and developing economies. However, the more complex structures of the financing packages, especially in large investments, continue to take time. Furthermore, major disturbances on global financial markets may affect the availability of project financing.

Tightening efficiency and environmental requirements and the declining ore grades continue to attract investments in plant modernization, optimization and increased automation. Rising energy prices are driving the industry to improve processes in order to achieve lower unit costs. Global relocation of production is driving the investments to new capacity.

Non-ferrous Solutions

The strong activity in the non-ferrous technology market is expected to continue. Not only are gold and copper projects being activated and developed, but also zinc and some nickel projects are coming to the market. Investments in new mines and concentrators are progressing fast and the investment activity in the downstream metals refining technologies is starting to pick up. This trend is further supported by high base metals prices. Competition continues to be tight in new projects; however, there are no material changes to the competitive landscape. Long-term fundamentals remain strong as ore grades decline; thus more processing capacity and advanced technology solutions will be needed in both concentrators and metals refining. Meanwhile, environmental regulations tighten and the cost of energy and water mounts; increasing the need for new and modern technological solutions.

Ferrous Solutions

The demand for raw materials used in steel making, iron ore and coking coal is expected to continue to be high. The demand for stainless steel raw materials also shows strong growth and the activity in ferroalloy projects is continuously strengthening. Brazil, India and South Africa continue to rapidly develop their infrastructure and to utilize their large natural resource base. There are several iron ore processing plant expansions and new investments under development particularly in Brazil and India, catering mainly to the Chinese market where concentrates and pellets are in constant demand. In addition, the depletion of lump ore deposits is driving sinter and pellet plant investments in India. Outotec's sustainable solutions - both in iron ore as well as ferroalloys sintering and pelletizing technologies - continue to be in strong demand because of their energy efficiency, capacity and environmental aspects. In the future, unconventional techniques, such as the direct reduction of iron ore, offer more and more opportunities to use lower grade raw material resources as well as optimized energy production and the reduction of CO2 emissions. Deliveries in the Ferrous Solutions business area are mainly large, turnkey projects and fluctuations in sales and profit recognition based on the timing and completion level of a particular project are inherent in this type of business.

Energy, Light Metals and Environmental Solutions

Rising oil prices and the depletion of oil reserves increase the demand for alternative energy sources, such as oil shale, oil sands and biomass. The world's recoverable oil shale and oil sand resources are at least ten times greater than those of conventional oil reserves, with large deposits found in the US, Canada, Brazil, China, Jordan, Russia and Estonia. Outotec and Eesti Energia have jointly developed a new technology solution, Enefit, utilizing Outotec's circulating fluidized bed technology. This technology will be used in Eesti Energia's oil shale plant currently under construction in Narva, Estonia. The Enefit technology can be applied globally for processing oil shales as well as oil sands in the future.

The demand for aluminum is also growing. Consequently, aluminum and thus bauxite and alumina projects, are also being revitalized. The Middle East is leveraging its advantageous energy position by building new smelters and refining capacity.

The business area's environmental solutions include sulfuric acid plants as well as applications for gas cleaning and heat recovery systems. The outlook for the sulfuric acid technology market remains positive due to the strong activity in copper projects since sulfuric acid is needed in hydrometallurgical processes and is produced as a by-product in the pyro-metallurgical processes including the minimization of the impact to the environment. The sulfuric acid market is also driven by an ongoing need from the fertilizer industry. In addition to sulfuric acid plants, any metallurgical process requires off-gas cleaning and effluent and water treatment technologies to reduce its environmental impact.

New opportunities in environmental technologies, such as materials recycling and waste management, are steadily increasing. Interest in industrial waste water treatment solutions is also growing. The technologies acquired by Outotec in the reporting period further strengthen the business area's portfolio.

Services business

Outotec's Services business is driven by a life cycle service concept. In addition to operational spares, these life cycle services include the increase of capacity utilization levels, modernizations, upgrades of existing operations as well as new capital investment projects. Customers need for spare parts, services and modernizations are expected to further increase due to re-commissioning of production lines and higher utilization rates. The scope of services varies from single spare parts to completely outsourced service agreements. This industry trend creates new growth opportunities on many levels and supports the company's goal to be a life cycle partner for its customers. The businesses acquired in 2010 further bolster Outotec's service offering and strengthen its capabilities globally.

FINANCIAL GUIDANCE FOR 2011

Outotec reiterates the previous guidance for the year 2011. Based on a strong opening order backlog and active market, in 2011:

  • order intake is expected to continue to grow, 

  • sales are expected to grow to approximately EUR 1.25-1.35 billion, and  

  • operating profit is expected to improve from 2010 and operating profit margin from business operations is expected to be approximately 8-9%. 

Operating profit is dependent on exchange rates, product mix, timing of new orders and project completions.

NOTES TO THE STATEMENT OF COMPREHENSIVE INCOME AND FINANCIAL POSITION

These interim financial statements are prepared in accordance with IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting. The same accounting policies and methods have been applied in these interim financial statements as in the recent annual financial statements and also the following revised standards have been applied which have been effective from the beginning of 2011. These interim financial statements are unaudited.

Adoption of new and revised IFRS standards and IFRIC -interpretations

Outotec has applied the following revised or new standards and interpretations since the beginning of 2011, which do not have material impact on the Group's interim financial statements or financial statements:

  • IAS 24 Related Party Disclosures. The changed standard simplifies the disclosure requirements for government-related entities and clarifies the definition of a related party. 

  • IAS 32 Financial Instruments: Presentation: Classification of Rights Issues. The amendment concerns the accounting of rights issues denominated in a currency other than the issuer's operating currency. A derivative associated with the party's equity is an equity instrument if it entitles to receive a fixed number of shares in the company for a fixed amount of currency or other financial receivable. Previously, such subscription rights were classified as derivative liabilities. 

  • IFRIC 14 - Prepayments of a Minimum Funding Requirement (an interpretation of IAS 19). The interpretation removes unintended consequences arising from the treatment of prepayments when there is a minimum funding requirement. The amendment results in pre-payments of contributions in certain circumstances recognized as an asset rather than as an expense. 

  • IFRIC 19 Extinguishing Financial Liabilities with Equity Instruments. According to the interpretation a debtor and creditor may renegotiate the terms of a financial liability with the result that the liability is fully or partially extinguished by the debtor issuing equity instruments to the creditor. This way the debt is swapped for equity. Such equity instruments are 'consideration paid,' in accordance with IAS 39.41 and the difference between the financial liability (or part thereof) and the fair valuation price of the granted equity instruments is recognized through profit and loss statement. 

  • Annual Improvements of IFRS standards 

Use of estimates

IFRS requires management to make estimates and assumptions which affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as well as the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of income and expenses during the reporting period. Accounting estimates are employed in the financial statements to determine reported amounts, including the realizability of certain assets, the useful lives of tangible and intangible assets, income taxes, provisions, pension obligations, impairment of goodwill. These estimates are based on management's best knowledge of current events and actions; however, it is possible that the actual results may differ from the estimates used in the financial statements.
