Vtion hat die Profitabilität trotz geringerem Umsatz gehalten

Preliminary figures for the first half of 2014/Full year guidance adjusted

Frankfurt, July 28, 2014

According to preliminary calculations Vtion Wireless Technology AG (Vtion), one of the leading suppliers of wireless data solutions for mobile computing in China, achieved an operating result (EBIT) of 1.8 million Euros and an EBIT margin of 7.9 per cent in the first half-year of 2014, therefore almost fulfilling its own guidance of 8 per cent. In the same period of the previous year EBIT was 2.1 million Euros and the EBIT margin was 7.5 per cent.

However, revenues with 22.9 million Euros remained behind the prior-year result of 27.8 million Euros. Among the main reasons for this is the decrease of sales from 3G wireless data cards and web cameras. Furthermore, the company has decided to exit the business with the VCAM mobile cameras in the second half of the year. Also, in terms of 4G technology products and based on the developments in the Chinese 4G market, Vtion decided to market a 4G router instead of the 4G wireless data card.

Altogether, these reasons lead to an adjustment of the guidance for the full financial year 2014: The company now expects revenues of 48.0 million Euros and an EBIT margin of 7.0 per cent.
Vtion's profit before income tax (EBT) declined by 3.9 per cent from 2.7 million Euros to 2.6 million Euros. Cash fell slightly by 7.7 per cent from 126.6 million Euros as at 31 December 2013 to 116.8 million Euros at the end of the first half of 2014.

Vtion's equity position declined from 136.3 million Euros to 132.2 million Euros. The equity ratio increased from of 89.6 per cent to 93.6 per cent in the first half of 2014.
