Letter to the

Stakeholders Successfully Through the Challenges The economies in the Baltic countries faced a dramatic drop in 2009.

Letter to the Stakeholders


We successfully finished our service process certification for the ISO 20 000 standard. At the moment only six companies in the Baltics and the whole of Scandinavia have managed this. Thanks to this, we are able to provide our customers with a better service. This was also proved by the latest customer satisfaction survey, which improved by 0.05% against a final figure of 4.33 in 2008, delivering a figure of 4.38 in 2009.

Despite the current complicated economic environment, we constantly continue to invest in new products, processes and markets. We have succeeded in establishing a company in Ukraine and during the current year we are waiting for the first results to come in. As well as this, we have completed some successful projects in the Belarus market and will continue to develop our business there.

Our new Hansab slogan (Hansab it works) represents the qualities which we relate to customer service and operational effectiveness.

We are confident that, together with the improving economic environment in our markets, our investments will deliver the very best results.

Service:

Focus to Excellence and Speed ITIL helps to improve service capability and quality Any service company that wants to operate in a professional manner should implement service processes that ensure service quality and compliance with customer requirements. ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library) is so far the best practice how to build up a service organization. Office Government Commerce (OGC) was founded in 1985, in England, and is today one of the most rapidly rising service management frameworks. When companies begin to deliver services they implement most common processes like Incident Management and Problem Management. They mostly focus how we solve incidents and not dealing with service strategy planning so much. As a result of an independent international survey about implementation of service processes in the companies, conducted by Hornbill, service software management provider, most common process is incident management (96%) closely followed change management 84% and then the problem management by 67%.

Service: Focus to Excellence and Speed


Service processes are divided into two categories: services support process and service delivery process. Service support describes how customers receive access to the appropriate ser vices in order to support their business activities as well as how these services are supported. Services support consists of the following elements:

Service delivery processes, on the other hand, describe those services that the customer needs to support their business, and what is needed to provide these services. The delivery of the process at hand process consists of the following:

• Service desk – initial point of contact for customers • Incident management – aims to resolve incident and restore provision as quickly as agreed in service level agreement. • Problem management – aims to find out root reasons why we have incidents and increase technical competence • Change management – addresses to the approval and controlled implementation of changes to the service management processes or to customer equipment • Configuration management – ensures accurate databases of customer equipment configurations • Release management – deals with the implementation of upgrades for customer’s equipment.

• Capacity management – ensures existence of all resources to assure agreement conditions fulfilling what is agreed with customers • Service Financial Management – dealing with budgeting and financial reporting • Service Availability – dealing with measuring services availability. How available are Hansab services to customers. • Service continuity Management – ensures continuous running of services to customers.

Little, however, is known about the fact that majority of the operations are connected to the service support processes and just under 50% companies pay attention to intangible asset, service delivery, which changes one crucial component – quality, in overall service function.

ISO 20 000 Certification We are proud to inform that Hansab received the ISO 20000 certificate as the first company in Estonia in February of 2010. Hansab maintains more than 3,000 payment terminals and 750 ATMs in Estonia, as well as thousands of security and money handling devices, queuing and parking machines. Hansab started ITIL implementation process back in 2007 and the following processes have begun to be implemented in all of the Baltic countries. Now, the certification is awaiting Latvian and Lithuanian companies in May 2010. ”In addition to the Internet bank, ATMs and payment terminals are the most frequent direct contact for the customer with the bank and the reliability of these is extremely important for us,” Hanno Hussar, Head of the Operations Division of Swedbank Eesti, the largest cooperation partner of Hansab, noted. “The certificate given to Hansab is proof for the customers that the machines and card terminals are in working order almost non-stop.”

There are only 458 companies in the world who have the ISO 20000 certificate, and Hansab now belongs to 6 of them in the whole of Nordic and Baltic regions, representing the highest quality certificate in this field of activity. The certificate assures to our customers that Hansab is a highquality partner who guarantees the sustainability of the service. The key words are security and reliability, towards which we strive every day as shown by the receipt of the ISO 20000 certificate. ISO 20000 is directly related to the globally recognised information technology process management framework Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL), which dates back to 1985 in England. ITIL handles the best practice of the management of IT services.

ISO 20 000 Certification


“As Hansab uses the ITIL processes at the management of the services provided to customers, the management system of the company had to be certified. The certificate proves, with the audit conducted by an accredited certification company, that the supply chain of services and the management processes at the company are managed correctly and with a high level of quality, which reduces the risk of the availability of services to customers and ensures constant monitoring and improvement of services.� The ISO 20000 standard was established in the world in December 2005. In Estonia, the ISO 20000 certificate was issued first to Hansab, which also has the ISO 9001 certificate and has received several awards from various quality contests.

Business Development Development Vision for 2010 What happens when nothing is happening? Nothing. Everything depends on you, not on the situation around you. Of course, no one is isolated from the recession to the global warming, etc. Success depends, however, on how you have prepared for and adapt to adverse conditions. Here at Hansab Group, we are quite keen on producing an effective buffer through astute analysis, proactive thinking, strategy monitoring and moderation. This has given us numerous advantages for when a disaster appears – WE ARE READY!

Business Development


In order to provide a soft landing after the dramatic economic decreases of 2008, we have undertaken the following: • new product strategies • we introduced ourselves to new market sectors such as retail, the public sector and medicine; • started business activities in export markets (successful projects in Belarus); • started a company in Kiev, Ukraine; • started to use the EU to support our development and export projects. These positive developments were the result of strong teamwork and a solid organizational structure along with effective team leaders.

Again we received positive feedback from our customers, due to our partners' trust in the Hansab Company and the people that work for it. Efficient work and punctuality together with deep business competence and experience are the key points that enabled us to be a strong partner for our customers. Key Account Management principles implementation plays a major role in our strong partnerships. The developments in Ukraine were especially promising. As nowadays it’s hard to maintain the organic growth of a company, the management board took the decision in early 2007 to go with a new company in a new territory. The decision seemed risky due to the risks associated with the region, however, the potential rewards were great. We succeeded in realising this move in February 2009 with the opening of a fully functioning company office in Kiev.

Business Development


We saw our strongest points with regards to the following: • Extensive procedural business know-how; • Proper partnership with global manufacturers on site; • Strong organisational structure that enables company growth; • Our Pan Baltic accounts extend business and ask us to support them on site; • Customers' requirement to have “fresh air” in the market; • After all the challenges that we endured in the previous year, new opportunities continue to present themselves. We constantly work to create the best product portfolios which will satisfy the needs of our customers. The biggest challenge in front of us at the current time is the development of a strong presence in the Ukrainian market, which will depend on our selection of an effective team there. I believe that together we’re strong. Let’s work together as partners!

Financial Results Year 2009 was another interesting and challenging period for Hansab Group. Global market downturn and deepening economic recession in the Baltic States continued to affect negatively the financial results of Hansab Group throughout 2009. As a result of weakened demand, Group’s total consolidated turnover decreased by 36% to 11.36 million Euros, compared to 2008. Despite of such a decline in turnover, Hansab Group managed to conclude 2009 with a net loss of only 81 thousand Euros and achieved a positive EBITDA figure of 553 thousand Euros. Such results were achieved through extensive cost-cutting programs, carried out in the whole Group. Companies of the Group proved to be flexible in adapting to changed market conditions as Group’s total operating expenses were reduced by 28% and labour expenses by 17%, compared to 2008. The number of employees of Hansab Group decreased from 150 in 2008 to 135 in 2009, resulting in higher work efficiency and sustained high-quality customer service.

Financial Results


Additionally, negative effect on Group’s profitability was further minimized as decrease in turnover in such traditional product categories as ATMs was partly compensated by the sale of products with higher profit margins. This, together with effective cost- cutting programs helped to reduce Group’s total commercial expenses by 35% compared to 2008, nearly offsetting the 36% decline in commercial revenue. Turnover from service activities has become a vital component in Group’s total turnover, increasing its share from 24% in 2008 to 35% in 2009. This aspect demonstrates the importance of service, one of the key processes of Hansab Group, in achieving stable financial results also during challenging market conditions. In year 2009, AS Hansab turnover accounted for 35%, SIA Hansab for 21%, UAB Hansab for 33%, Baltic Operation Services OÜ for 4%, Ellore OÜ for 5% and other Hansab Group companies for 2% of the total turnover of Hansab Group. Latvian company SIA Hansab saw the biggest change in the share of total turnover, decreasing from 28% in 2008 to 21% in 2009. Lithuanian UAB Hansab and Estonian AS Hansab both increased their share in the total turnover during 2009, from 31% to 33% and from 30% to 35%, respectively.

During the same period, the highest profit was earned by AS Hansab with 144 thousand Euros, followed by UAB Hansab with 53 thousand Euros and by Ellore OÜ with 35 thousand Euros. SIA Hansab and Baltic Operation Services OÜ finished the year with losses of 139 thousand and 144 thousand Euros, respectively. The net loss of Hansab Group for 2009 made up 81 thousand Euros. Financial expenses for 2009 accounted for 180 thousand Euros, and depreciation for 398 thousand Euros (out of which the biggest part was made up by growing depreciation costs from Baltic Operation Services OÜ RVM machines), leading to Group’s 2009 EBITDA figure of 553 thousand Euros. As a result of Hansab Group’s conservative financial policies in the past, Group’s liquidity position is continuously strong. Consolidated balance sheet decreased during year 2009 by 681 thousand Euros, to 8.94 million Euros.

Financial Results


The expansion of Hansab Group’s activities into Ukraine by establishing TOB Ukraine is expected to have a positive effect on Group’s financial results starting from second half of 2010. Moreover, Enterprise Estonia (EAS) subsidies are to be used for investigating market opportunities in Belarus and Ukraine. We expect 2010 to be another challenging year for Hansab Group. However, we believe that Hansab Group’s current competitive cost base and strategy allows us to achieve outstanding profit margins during the next economic growth cycle.

As a result of Hansab Group’s conservative financial policies in the past, Group’s liquidity position is continuously strong.

What We are Proud of in Estonia The Innovative Queue System of the North Estonia Medical Centre

When developing the queue system, the North Estonia Medical Centre desired to render the work of the operators and doctors of radiology easier, more secure and faster. The earlier calling by name was replaced with a queue system with a numeric display, main display, traffic lights and electronically controlled doors. When developing the system, convenience and promptness were considered in the first place. For that purpose Hansab developed software for a touch screen computer mountable on the wall at the operator’s workplace, on which all the information necessary to guide a patient through the process of arriving at an examination will be displayed. For the purpose the queue system must control doors, transmit a video image, activate phones and signal lamps.

Page Number

34

An approximate 600,000 people a year go to radiological examinations as a whole, whereby the presence of the given solution is vital to the hospital. The system of the Emergency Medicine Centre was solved according to the necessity for work of emergency medicine. For the time being, we are working with additional development as a follow-up to final development, which should render work even more flexible. The solution of a queue system, on the face of it, complicated for the patient, is becoming more and more acknowledged. Its purpose is to ensure maximum satisfaction and a just servicing queue after all.

Hansab Estonia


The idea behind the system is to associate a queue number with the card of a patient arriving at the reception. When calling the patient, the patient record will be opened automatically, which implicates a significant advantage in time and convenience for the patient, whereas he/she is not going to have to repeat the same story at each doctor – a mere namely introduction will suffice. In addition, the queue system will read a wristband with a bar code attached to the arm of the patient, with the help of which the patient will be designated in the computer as having arrived from an examination, and a nurse will no longer have to check whether the patient is back or not.

An approximate 600,000 people a year go to radiological examinations as a whole, whereby the presence of the given solution is vital to the hospital.

Parking System Projects

At the end of 2009 Hansab installed a new parking system, Amano XPARC, in the Stockmann Department Store. XPARC is Amano’s newest solution, which, in addition to its exclusive appearance, was developed taking into account high quality standards, which will ensure high reliability and longevity of the equipment even in the hands of the most demanding user. All the system components were designed for intensive use in harsh conditions and tested in northern climate beforehand. The system includes entry and exit terminals, barriers and 5 cash terminals. According to the Security Manager of Stockmann, Sergo Kohal, the Amano parking system was chosen mainly because a modern and robust solution was required, and after the implementation of the new system they have noted an increase in positive feedback by both the customers and employees.

All the system components were designed for intensive use in harsh conditions and tested in northern climate beforehand.

One of the largest parking solutions in 2009 was carried out in small harbours of Estonia – the Ports of Rohukßla, Heltermaa and Virtsu. In connection with an expansion of the waiting area of the ports and the building of new parking lots, Hansab installed an Amano parking system, barriers and info displays. A card payment terminal was installed in the payment station of the parking system, which is weatherproof and suitable for field use. The small harbour project has not finished for Hansab and will continue into 2010, when turnstiles, barriers and prism and led displays will be installed in the ports.

Hansab Estonia


Biometrics

Of biometric projects the biggest was the access and working time calculation system projects of Eesti Pagar and Kohimo. Eesti Pagar is a baking industry located in Paide, and over 300 people are working there. In 2009 Hansab installed an access and working time calculation system with fingerprint sensors for Eesti Pagar. A total of 30 pieces of different biometric equipment was installed. The Kohimo Factory is operating in the manufacturing of metal constructions, and about 100 employees are working in the factory. 5 pieces of biometric equipment and turnstiles were installed in the Kohimo Factory.

Hansab Latvia We have left the disaster behind It would be an understatement to declare that 2009 was challenging for us in Latvia. Just a few figures can describe the negative situation which confronts enterprises in Latvia operating in the local market. The GDP drop in 2009 was 18%, sales drop 31.4% and unemployment 15% by the end of 2009. SIA Hansab has faced a lot of challenging situations and had to make many unpopular decisions.

At the beginning of 2009, SIA Hansab started without local management which had resigned due to poor results in 2008. Only by early spring were all vacancies filled and the company could start the difficult path of restructuring and optimization. The economic downturn pressed us to evaluate each single employee’s skills, abilities to adapt to the new situation in market. We were also forced to re-evaluate each person’s workload and due to the market drop we combined some duties in the company and made it more effective. All of the aforementioned steps resulted in the total headcount being decreased by 12 people, with the addition of a few new faces in the sales department. All steps mentioned above significantly decreased our costs, and made our company much more effective. We have kept the most professional, experienced and competent employees and we have employed active, customer friendly and target oriented team members in sales. We entered 2010 in good shape and are ready for any kinds of challenge.

In late spring of last year SIA Hansab moved to a new office. We decided to change from a small and old-style downtown office to a new, modern and cosy office building in a fast developing region of Riga. Our new office is much more suitable for maintaining a good standard of cooperation with our customers and partners. We have space for organizing customer events, seminars, meetings, conferences, and training on our premises. We are proud of our new office. Our product sales turnover decreased significantly, however, we managed to increase our Service Level Agreements (SLA) revenue. On 1 July 2009, we won a tender and signed a 4 year contract with AS Parex Bank for ATM services and monitoring. This contract guaranties our service department regular and predictable income. This was an important deal for us.

Hansab Latvia


One more development of which we are quite proud is our regular annual customer satisfaction survey results for 2009, which indicated 4.34 points on a 5 point scale. Compared to the 2008 results, which amounted to 4.16, this was a large improvement. These improved results have come in an environment in which customers are becoming more sensitive to quality concerns and employees are taking on greater responsibilities. In summation, 2009 was a year of changes, hard decisions and great efforts. But most importantly it gave us great experience, namely the experience of managing business in a downturn.

Our new office is much more suitable for maintaining a good standard of cooperation with our customers and partners. I think that in the future, the best crisis managers will come from Latvia.

Hansab Lithuania Overview of 2009 Activities The year 2009 for UAB Hansab was one of great challenges and changes. The company results had increased every year in conjunction with the Lithuanian economy, but 2009 saw the inverse effect. First and foremost, Hansab celebrated the fifteenth anniversary of the commencement of its activities in Lithuania. It is a pretty long operating life for a company which is engaged in niche activities. Over the entire fifteen years a great deal of attention has been paid to customer satisfaction, to the continuous improvement of work quality and to the maintenance of long-term relationships. The right course of action was proved in a customer survey, in which customers assessed Hansab’s activities with a highest-ever score of 4.55 (in a five-point scale). It means that for the entire fifteen years the company has been on the right track.

Ahead of the fifteenth anniversary, Hansab was faced with new challenges. In 2009 the composition of Hansab’s management had changed. I, as the new general manager, not only had to deal with the challenges that arose, which were a condition of the company’s management being replaced, but also lead the company at a time at which economic conditions had been changed. Over the last decade, Hansab’s results have grown annually, but in 2009 the company had to accept the changed conditions as a result of the general credit crisis. In 2009 Lithuania had one of the largest GDP reductions in the European Union, and completed the year with a GDP decline of -13.2%. The general economic situation has had an impact on our business too. Company revenue fell by 31% when compared with 2008. As UAB Hansab worked for many years in the banking sector, the main part of its revenue was derived from this sector. The global banking crisis did not leave Lithuania in the best of health after it had passed on. In order to optimise their businesses, many banks started closing Page Number

branches. This was in direct opposition to our results, because in the last couple of years this was one of the most rapidly growing sectors, which served to increase our revenues. Support services were not as drastically affected as those in sales. A well-functioning service network has helped to retain the basic customer segment and has given them an appropriate level of service. As a result of this, service revenue remained unchanged when compared with 2008. Despite the economic shrinkage, in 2009 Hansab continued its activity and invested into the improvement of the business. Many resources and a good deal of time had been spent on the development of new areas: new products dedicated for new customers (in the non-banking sector), and development (new partners, new products, new clients). In 2008 Hansab obtained a certificate which gives permission to sell and service X-ray medical machines. At the end of the year the company signed the first contracts of sale for these machines. New cooperation agreements were signed Hansab Lithuania


with equipment manufacturers and suppliers. In 2009 a strategic partnership with the Swisslog company in Sweden was launched regarding the sale of service activities. Also signed was the first cooperation agreement, which opened new export routes for service activities. There was also a lot invested in to the ITIL service processes installation, which has been prepared for certification under the ISO 20000 standard. The company first plans to obtain this certificate in Lithuania in the first half of 2010.

A well-functioning service network has helped to retain the basic customer segment and has given them an appropriate level of service.

The year 2009 presented plenty of challenges that led to a review of the company’s activity. We are glad that the team remained stable. The difficulties we all incurred and the lessons we have learned will allow us to continue to successfully develop the company’s activities in recovering out economic entourage. Page Number
