CEO’s comments

Net sales for the first quarter were EUR 10,4 million growing 18% compared with EUR 8,8 million net sales a year ago. The growth is effected mainly due to high demand of Power Supplies and LED Drives whereas the net sales in Power Systems declined. The order intake continued strong which led to very high orderbook of EUR 34,1 million.

Enedo has decided to reclassify its business categories and move the products delivered to Rail customers from Power Systems to Power Supplies. The reason for this is that these products are more similar with Power Supplies products than Power Systems products and after this amendment the product categories are more homogenius technically. All figures in this Q1 Business release are presented according to the new product category model.

The Power Supplies product category’s net sales increased to EUR 6,7 million with an increase of EUR 1,2 million, 21%, compared to net sales of EUR 5,5 million in Q1 2021. The growth in orderbook has been strongest in Power Supplies product caregory and without the delivery problems mainly due to component shortages Enedo could have during Q1 2022 delivered more products than the reported EUR 6,7 million.

The Led Drivers product category's net sales were EUR 2,7 million, an increase of EUR 0,8 million, 41%, compared to Q1 2021. The increase of the Led Drivers product category was mainly driven by the increased demand by our customers in sport stadium and public environment businesses.

The net sales of the Power Systems product category declined with EUR 0,3 million and was EUR 1,1 million. The reason for the decline was mostly the global shortage of components. However the orderbook at the end of Q1 2022 was EUR 1,9 million higher than year ago.

The vast part of the groupwide turnaround program is now implemented with anticipated positive impact. The next phase will be countinous improvement and taking action on identified risks. The global shortage of components is still prevailing and expected to continue over the year. In combination with the challenging cash situation this will impact the sales and financial performance negatively.

The logistic procedures, capacity constraints and underinvested machinery in Tunis are also impacting the performance negatively. Improvement actions are taking place in this respect, and in addition the company is scouting for external EMS partners to improve the service to the clients.

The groupwide ERP project has been proceeding according to plan and the second phase including logistics and operations was implemented in Finland in the beginning of January 2022. The ERP implementation will later continue in Tunis and Italy.

Financial performance

The liquidity situation of the company has remained challenging mostly due to increased value of inventories which remained high being EUR 10,1 million at the end of Q1 2022. There is an increase of EUR 0,7 million since end of December 2021 and EUR 1,7 million since end of September 2021. The company will execute actions to decrease the level of inventories and thereby release the cash from inventories and working capital. This would eventually help the challenging liquidity situation.

The Group’s cash position at the end of March was Eur 2,1 million compared to EUR 2,7 million at the end of the year 2021. Enedo signed a new loan of EUR 5,0 million at the end of December 2021 and the loan is fully raised by the end of March 2022. Most of the MEUR 1,5 million raised during Q1 2022 was used to finance the Turnaround program and to amortize other short term loans.

The above mentioned EUR 5,0 million loan arrangement has a maturity date of 30th September 2022. Based on the original plan, the current strong order intake and reduced cost levels the company aims to either agree to prolong the maturity date, negotiate a new loan with another financing institution or to raise sufficient equity financing to repay the loan. The company is currently evaluating the alternatives.
