Highlights

Following a planned development of revenue in the first half of 2013, the GFT Group stepped up the pace of growth significantly in the third quarter. Thanks to dynamic organic growth in the GFT Solutions division and the initial consolidation of the newly acquired Sempla Group, consolidated revenue in the third quarter grew by 22% to €71.25 million. After the first nine months, the GFT Group posted revenue growth of 6% to €185.44 million. Pre-tax earnings (EBT) improved over the same period by 44% to €11.21 million. The Company has upgraded its full-year guidance for pre-tax earnings issued in August to around €16 million (formerly at least €15 million) and expects revenue for the full year to increase to at least €260 million (prev. year: €230.69 million) with an EBITDA result of around €19 million (prev. year: €13.35 million).

Q1–3–2013

Interim Group Management Report of GFT Technologies Aktiengesellschaft as at 30 September 2013 (not certified)

Business environment Economic environment Macroeconomic development Global growth remained slow in the third quarter of 2013.

The ifo’s Business Climate Index was up slightly again in September – for the fifth consecutive time. It rose marginally from 107.6 points in the previous month to 107.7 points.

In its latest World Economic Outlook of October 2013, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) downgraded its forecast for the global economy for the fourth time this year and for the sixth consecutive time. According to the report, global gross domestic product (GDP) will rise by just 2.9% this year, or by 0.3 %-points less than previously expected. High unemployment in Europe, uncertainty about the effects of tougher US monetary policy and weaker growth in the emerging economies are regarded as the main obstacles. In its Economic Outlook of September 2013, the Or-

Sector development The global IT market once again displayed stronger growth than the economy as a whole. However, the international market research institute IDC reduced its forecast for global IT expenditure in the current year from 4.9% to 4.6% growth. According to Gartner’s market researchers, global IT managers are expected to spend a total of $926 billion for IT services in 2013 – corresponding to growth of 2.2%.

In their autumn reports, the leading German research institutes state that Germany is on the verge of an economic upswing. Nevertheless, they downgraded their forecast for the current year from 0.8% in their spring reports to 0.4%. The IMF and OECD are more upbeat: the IMF expects economic growth of 0.5% for Germany this year, while the OECD’s economists predict as much as 0.7%.

The Group’s pre-tax earnings (EBT) were up 44% to €11.21 million (prev. year: €7.80 million), corresponding to a margin of 6.0% (prev. year: 4.5%). The GFT Solutions division made very encouraging progress with revenue growth of 30% to €117.82 million in the first nine months (prev. year: €90.48 million). The newly integrated Sempla Group business accounted for €10.20 million of this figure. Adjusted for this revenue contribution, GFT Solutions posted growth of 19%. This strong organic growth was helped by rising demand for outsourcing services and investment banking solutions, especially in the regions UK and Germany. The disproportionately strong increase in earnings, compared to revenue, of 62% to €12.85 million (prev. year: €7.93 million) resulted mainly from a higher utilisation rate and the adjustment of the remaining purchase price for Asymo AG.

At the beginning of financial year 2013, revenue by indus-

banking industry, revenues here rose by 54% to €42.27 million (prev. year: €27.45 million). This positive development was driven by both the GFT Solutions division and the emagine division. This region’s share of Group revenue rose to 23% (prev. year: 16%). With a decline in revenue of 5% to €29.83 million, business in France was slightly down on the previous year (€31.32 million). Revenue in this region is generated almost completely with the staffing of technology projects (emagine). The region accounted for 16% (prev. year: 18%) of total Group revenue. Revenue in Spain was also down by 3% to €19.46 million (prev. year: €20.06 million). Its share of Group revenue remained stable at 10% (prev. year: 11%). With the acquisition of the Sempla Group, the GFT Group has been represented by ten offices in Italy since the beginning of the third quarter of 2013. Revenue with clients in this region, which was previously classified under »Other countries«, is now shown in the separately disclosed region »Italy«.

With a 65% share of the GFT Group’s total revenue (prev. year: 61%), the financial service providers sec­ tor remained the most important industry for GFT in the first nine months of 2013. Revenue losses from the discon­ tinued TPM business were completely offset in this sector by revenue growth in the GFT Solutions segment of 32% to €108.83 million (prev. year: €82.74 million). All in all, revenue in this sector increased by 13% to €120.96 million (prev. year: €106.94 million). The proportion of revenue contributed by the sector »other service providers« fell to 14% (prev. year: 16%). Revenues were down by 10% to €24.99 million (prev. year: €27.84 million). This was due to lower sales in both the emagine segment and GFT Solutions segment.

The operating margin before taxes improved strongly by 1.5 %-points, from 4.5% in the previous year to 6.0%. In the reporting period, the GFT Group generated earnings after taxes of €8.38 million, corresponding to growth of 64% over the prior-year figure (€5.10 million). The calculated tax ratio fell to 25% (prev. year: 35%). This was mainly due to the tax-free earn-out reduction of Asymo.

Due to reduced revenues and low earnings, the operating margin fell to 0.6% (prev. year: 1.9%). The »others« category comprises balance sheet effects, costs of the holding company and consolidation amounts which cannot be directly charged to either of the two aforementioned divisions. At €-2.05 million, pre-tax earnings of this division in the first nine months were 20% below the prior-year figure (€-1.72 million). This was mainly due to expenses for the CODE_n project and CeBIT fair presence in March 2013.

This increase of €1.55 million was mainly due to the partial reversal of an earn-out provision for the remaining Asymo purchase payment as well as to other operating income. This other operating income was mostly generated via the CODE_n partnerships. The item cost of purchased services – mainly comprising the use of external manpower – fell by €5.62 million to €77.41 million (prev. year: €83.03 million) due to lower revenues in the Third Party Management business and the related purchase of external employees.

The calculated tax ratio fell strongly by 10 %-points to 25% (prev. year: 35%). This was due to a more even distribution of profits among the various national subsidiaries and the non-taxable adjustment to the Asymo earn-out provision during the reporting period.

Depreciation of intangible and tangible assets rose slightly to €1.78 million in the first nine months (€1.16 million). The acquisition of the Sempla Group resulted in pro rata depreciation from operating activities of €0.38 million and write-downs on client base and software products from the Purchase Price Allocation (PPA) of €0.27 million.

Due to the delayed receipt of payments and the acquisition of the Sempla Group, trade receivables rose by €24.31 million to €68.52 million as at 30 September 2013. At year-end 2012, the figure stood at €44.21 million. Trade payables – consisting mainly of amounts owing to external employees – amounted to €18.32 million on 30 September 2013. This corresponds to a reduction of €1.51 million compared to 31 December 2012 (€19.83 million). Since the planned winding down of Third Party Management business last year, liabilities have remained correspondingly stable since the beginning of the year.

€94.95 million and were thus €10.64 million above their year-end 2012 level (€84.31 million). There was a sharp increase of €24.31 million in trade receivables to €68.52 million (31 December 2012: €44.21 million), which was opposed by a fall in liquid funds of €16.85 million to €19.06 million (31 December 2012: €35.91 million). The acquisition of the Sempla Group once again played a major role. Equity of €82.69 million on 30 September 2013 was €4.48 million above the corresponding figure on the balance sheet date of 31 December 2012 (€78.21 million). This change was mainly due to a reduction in the balance sheet loss from €-3.83 million to a balance sheet profit of €0.56 million. As a result of the strong increase in the balance sheet total, the equity ratio amounts to 47% and is thus 12 %-points below the year-end 2012 figure (59%).

will continue to gain stability in 2013 and 2014 but grow more slowly than previously expected. The main risks are seen as slower growth in the major emerging nations of China, India, Brazil and Russia, the continued expansionary monetary policy of central banks and unresolved budget issues in the USA. In its economic outlook of October 2013, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) therefore downgraded its forecast for global economic growth in the current year from 3.2% to 2.9%.

cast for the UK from 0.8% to 1.5%. For Germany, they expect an increase in economic output of 0.7%. For the monetary union as a whole, the OECD believes that the long and deep recession will be overcome by the end of the year. The IMF is also more upbeat than before about the eurozone’s development in 2013 and now predicts an overall decline of 0.4%, compared to 0.6% in its previous forecast. The outlook for Germany is also much more optimistic. The IMF forecasts GDP growth of 0.5% in 2013 (previously 0.3%). This growth is now expected to reach 1.4% in 2014, instead of 1.3% as previously predicted.

Revenue and earnings forecast

Gartner already downgraded its growth outlook for global IT spending in the current year from 4.1% to 2%. Gartner stated that the strong downgrade was mainly due to fluctuations in dollar exchange rates. If exchange rates had remained stable, the revised growth forecast would have been 3.5%. The analysts see a slight increase in Western Europe, as further strategic IT initiatives are expected in this region. Growth in spending is expected to fall in most other regions. For the coming year, Gartner expects growth in global IT spending to pick up again and reach 4.1%. The experts forecast growth of 2.2% in spending on IT services for the current year and an increase of 4.6%

Following a first six months of 2013 in line with expectations and a good third quarter well above the prior-year figures – thanks to strong organic growth of GFT Solutions and the Sempla Group acquisition – the GFT Group expects business to make further progress in the year as a whole. The Executive Board has therefore upgraded its fullyear guidance for pre-tax earnings issued in August to around €16 million (formerly at least €15 million) and expects revenue for the full year to increase to at least €260 million (prev. year: €230.69 million) with an EBITDA result of around €19 million (prev. year: €13.35 million).

The reconciliation discloses items which per definition are not components of the segments. Non-attributed items of Group HQ, e.g. from centrally managed issues. Business transactions between the segments are also eliminated in the reconciliation Due to reduced earnings expectations for GFT Financial Solutions AG, as described in point 2, the segment liabilities of GFT Solutions were reduced by €1,282 thousand.

Owing to the mainly short maturity term of trade payables and receivables, other receivables and liabilities and cash and cash equivalents, the carrying amounts on the balance sheet date do not vary significantly from the fair value.
