'GPV’s 2012/13 performance is satisfactory'
Danish contract manufacturer GPV Group come out of a satisfactory full fiscal year 2012/2013, with a 43 percent increase in profits.
GPV, an EMS-provider anchored in Europe and Thailand, shows an increase in operating profit (EBIT) of 30 percent on 2011/12. Profit for the year continues at a modest level, however showing an increase of 43% on last year. As expected, total revenue for 2012/13 came to DKK 718m (96 million euro) against DKK 740m for 2011/12, a decrease of 3%. The limited decrease in activity level should be seen in relation to the general stagnation/downturn in the market combined with the addition of new products within GPV’s recurring business. Also in 2012/13, GPV has focused on managing capacity costs and enhancing efficiency with the result that GPV ends 2012/13. Operating profit (EBIT) amounted to DKK 30.2m (4 million euro) against DKK 23.3m for 2011/12. Profit for the year was DKK 3.9m (just above 0,5 million euro) against DKK 2.7m for 2011/12. Outlook: ”In 2012/13, GPV continued the development of the basic business at the same time as a range of strategic initiatives have been commenced. The work on these initiatives will continue in 2013/14, just as more strategic initiatives will be launched. The aim of the focused efforts is to increase the value creation for our customers, for GPV, and for our owners. FY 2013/14 appears to be characterized by a continuation of the economic instability that prevails especially in Europe, and against this backdrop GPV expects only modest growth in revenue and an operating profit (EBIT) as well as a positive cash flow from operations at level with 2012/13.”
