  • sales are expected to grow to approximately EUR 1.35-1.45 billion (raised on September 19, 2011,
    previously EUR 1.25-1.35 billion), and  

  • operating profit is expected to improve from 2010 and operating profit margin from business operations is expected to be approximately 8 - 9%. 


Operating profit is dependent on exchange rates, product mix, timing of new orders and project completions.

President and CEO Pertti Korhonen:
"The demand for Outotec's technology solutions and services continued strong also in the third quarter. Particularly the non-ferrous, aluminum and steel industries were investing in new production capacity. Record-high order intake in the third quarter led to an all-time-high over 2 billion euro order backlog at the end of September. Due to the high order backlog, successful execution and strong services sales, all our business areas are now on solid growth track and our profitability continued to improve. Services sales were 29% higher than in the comparison period, demonstrating very strong organic growth. Our cash flow was very strong due to advance and milestone payments.

I am pleased that our investments in the development of our operational model and organization as well as our efforts to recruit new professionals have started to deliver strong growth and improving profitability towards our long-term targets. Despite the turbulence within the financial markets in Europe and North America, Outotec's market outlook has remained positive as well over half of our sales is coming from emerging markets. Our flexible and asset light business model based on extensive use of partnering and outsourcing and our strong balance sheet help us to adapt to possible changes in market conditions.

We have successfully integrated the seven acquisitions we have made during the last three years and they are positively contributing to our growth and profitability development. Our strong balance sheet enables us to continue pursuing further acquisitions which are an important aspect of our strategy.

I am grateful for the trust our customers have in us by giving us a great deal of new business and I would like to extend my special thanks to all of our Outotec's personnel around the world for their very strong performance."

INTERIM REPORT JANUARY-SEPTEMBER 2011

OPERATING ENVIRONMENT

The overall market activity remained strong during the reporting period. The mining and metals industry's investments were supported by the positive long-term outlook for metals demand and good metals prices. Production capacity utilization rates continued to be healthy increasing the demand for spare parts and services. Markets in South America, Australia and India continued to be rather robust, but - especially in the third quarter - activity also picked up in the CIS, the Middle East and China. In terms of metals, the strongest demand was seen in copper, gold, and iron technologies. In addition, orders for alumina, aluminum and ferrochrome technology were received. The market for sulfuric acid and gas cleaning technologies also remained good, due to investment activity in copper projects and high production levels of metals in general. In some Outotec technology areas, the workload of key experts was quite high due to intensive sales activity and delivery execution. In addition, there were some signs of lengthening delivery times in certain areas of the subcontractor network which, however, remained well below the levels of the last up-cycle. In addition to minerals and metals processing solutions, the demand for alternative energy, industrial water treatment and environmental solutions also rose.

The financial market in the emerging economies has remained operational despite turbulence in Europe and North America and the financial institutions have been willing to provide funding for projects in emerging markets. Mining companies' strong cash flows and balance sheets have been supporting their financing of new investments.

Tightening environmental regulations are reflected in prolonged approval times of environmental permits for Outotec's customers' investment projects. The stricter requirements in all market areas are having a positive impact on the demand for Outotec's sustainable solutions since much of the legislation places limits on the use of inefficient plants and processes. Outotec's advanced technology solutions allow customers to minimize their life cycle costs for processes as well as their environmental impacts, while maximizing the recovery of valuable materials.

ORDER INTAKE

In the reporting period, order intake, including plant deliveries, technology and equipment deliveries as well as services, increased by 62% and totaled EUR 1,678.4 million (Q1-Q3/2010: EUR 1,038.2 million). Orders from EMEA (Europe including CIS, Middle East and Africa) represented 52%, Americas 34% and Asia Pacific 14% of the total order intake. The orders received in the third quarter of 2011 totaled EUR 802.7 million (Q3/2010: EUR 269.1 million).

Major new orders in the third quarter:

  • concentrator technology for the Petropavlovsk Group gold mine, Russia (EUR 25 million); 

  • alumina calcination technology for Ma'aden Bauxite Aluminium Company, Saudi Arabia (EUR 62 million, of which roughly EUR 50 million booked in Q3 order intake); 

  • copper concentrator technology for ZAO Miheevsky, Russia (EUR 60 million); 

  • gas cleaning and sulfuric acid technology for Almalyk Mining & Metallurgical Company, Uzbekistan (EUR 30 million); 

  • aluminum smelter technology for Emirates Aluminium, Abu Dhabi (EUR 100 million); 

  • copper concentrator technology for Codelco, Chile (EUR 24 million, half of which was booked in Q2 and the rest in Q3 order intake); 

  • magnetic separation solution for London Mining Plc's iron ore project, Sierra Leone (over EUR 10 million); 

  • iron ore pelletizing plant for NLMK Novolipetsk Metallurgisk Kombinat, Russia (EUR 150 million); and

  • copper flash smelting technology for National Iranian Copper Industries Company, Iran (EUR 61 million); and 

  • iron ore pelletizing plant for Samarco Mineração, Brazil (EUR 200 million). 

Major new orders in the first quarter:

  • copper flash smelting furnace and related services for RTB Bor, Serbia (EUR 60 million); 

  • oil shale preparation plant for Eesti Energia, Estonia (EUR 20 million); 

  • effluent treatment plant for Codelco, Chile (EUR 18 million); and 

  • key process technologies and services for a copper/gold concentrator for Sandfire Resources, Australia (EUR 15 million).  

ORDER BACKLOG

The order backlog at the end of the reporting period was all-time high and reached EUR 2,052.5 million, which is 54% higher than at the end of the comparison period (September 30, 2010: EUR 1,332.2 million).

At the end of the reporting period, Outotec had 35 projects with an order backlog value in excess of EUR 10 million, accounting for 68% of the total backlog. Management estimates that roughly 25% (approximately EUR 510 million) of the September-end backlog value will be delivered in 2011 and the rest in 2012 and beyond. At the end of the reporting period, the suspended projects in the order backlog have been reduced to EUR 20 million (September 30, 2010: EUR 60 million). Roughly 4% of the projects in Outotec's current backlog are from mining companies who are developing their first processing plants.

SALES AND FINANCIAL RESULT

Sales in the reporting period totaled EUR 888.8 million (Q1-Q3/2010: EUR 639.4 million), a 39% increase from the comparison period. Currencies did not have material effect on sales growth which resulted from a strong opening backlog for 2011, continued strong order intake in first half of the year and good progress in project, equipment and service deliveries especially in the Non-ferrous Solutions and Ferrous Solutions business areas. Sales for the third quarter totaled EUR 352.8 million (Q3/2010: EUR 228.5 million).

Services business area sales, which is included in the sales figures of the three reporting segments, totaled EUR 234.4 million in the reporting period (Q1-Q3/2010: EUR 182.0 million), up 29% from the comparison period and accounting for 26% of Outotec's sales (Q1-Q3/2010: 28%). Services sales in the third quarter totaled EUR 87.7 million (Q3/2010: EUR 69.5 million).

Operating profit from business operations for the reporting period was EUR 66.6 million (Q1-Q3/2010: EUR 41.2 million), representing 7.5% of sales (Q1-Q3/2010: 6.4%). The increase from the comparison period resulted from higher sales, license fee income, good project execution and related provision releases. In addition, unrealized and realized exchange gains related to currency forward contracts increased profitability by EUR 2.3 million (Q1-Q3/2010: unrealized and realized exchange gain of EUR 3.3 million). PPA amortizations for the reporting period were EUR 3.6 million (Q1-Q3/2010: EUR 7.6 million). Operating profit for the reporting period was EUR 63.0 million (Q1-Q3/2010: EUR 13.5 million). Operating profit from business operations in the third quarter of 2011 was EUR 34.3 million (Q3/2010: EUR 26.4 million), representing 9.7% of sales (Q3/2010: 11.5%). Operating profit in the third quarter of 2011 was EUR 33.2 million (Q3/2010: EUR 18.1 million. Timing of project completions and related provision releases, higher fixed costs related to long-term growth targets and impact from unrealized and realized exchange losses related to currency forward contracts were the main reasons for lower operating profit margin than in the third quarter of 2010.

Fixed costs for the reporting period were EUR 153.1 million (Q1-Q3/2010: EUR 134.0 million). The increase was primarily due to investments in developing and deploying Outotec's global operational model, personnel increases supporting especially the development of Services business and growth of overall supply capability, fixed costs of acquired companies, business development projects, bonuses and costs related to the share-based incentive program. Profit before taxes for the reporting period was EUR 62.5 million (Q1-Q3/2010: EUR 12.1 million). It included net finance expense of EUR -0.5 million (Q1-Q3/2010: net finance expense EUR -1.4 million). The net finance expense decreased primarily due to increased interest income. Net profit for the reporting period was EUR 42.3 million (Q1-Q3/2010: EUR 8.3 million). Taxes totaled EUR 20.2 million (Q1-Q3/2010: EUR 3.7 million). Earnings per share were EUR 0.93 (Q1-Q3/2010: EUR 0.18). Earnings per share in the comparison period of 2010 were impacted by the one-time costs related to the company's cost savings program.

Outotec's return on equity for the reporting period was 15.9% (Q1-Q3/2010: 3.3%), and return on investment was 21.8% (Q1-Q3/2010: 3.9%). Profitability improvement and decreased purchase price amortization allocations improved the reporting period's return on equity and return on investment compared to 2010.

SHORT-TERM RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES

Risks related to the global operating environment

Outotec's global business operations are subject to various political, economic and social conditions. Operations in global markets may present risks related to economic and political instability. Turbulence in financial and banking markets and the potential escalation of sovereign debt crisis may have a severe negative impact on the outlook of the global economy. Conditions may rapidly change and create delays and changes in order placement and execution as well as in the availability and conditions of project financing for mining companies.

Risks related to Outotec's business

As part of the overall project delivery, Outotec gives performance guarantees and is liable for the warranty period defects. In the project risk assessment during the reporting period, all unfinished projects were evaluated and provisions for performance guarantees and warranty period guarantees were updated. There were no material changes in the Group's project risk provisions.

Global economic uncertainty may reduce the demand for Outotec's products and services. Volatility in sales may affect the operating profit margin since the adjustments in fixed costs may become effective with a delay. Outotec's gross margin is also impacted by product mix. Particularly orders which include license fees may have a major impact on the gross margin. Changes in labor costs, especially when operating in high inflationary countries, as well as changes in raw materials and subcontracting prices and the availability of components can affect Outotec's profitability. Outotec hedges these risks mostly contractually.

The nature of international project business, different interpretations of international and local tax rules and regulations may cause additional direct or indirect taxes for Outotec which would reduce the company's net result.

Acquisitions are an integral part of Outotec's growth strategy. There is a risk that the estimated synergy benefits will not materialize as planned.

Outotec is involved in a few arbitral and court proceedings. Management expects that these cases and their outcomes will have no material effect on Outotec's financial result.

Financial risks

There is a risk that customers and suppliers may experience financial difficulties and a lack of financing may result in project and payment delays as well as bankruptcies, which can also result in losses for Outotec. These risks are reduced by advance and milestone payments as well as letters of credit. In the reporting period, there were no material credit losses related to payments by Outotec's counter-parties and at the end of the reporting period all receivables were reviewed and credit loss provisions were updated.

Outotec's business model is based primarily on customer advance payments and on-demand guarantees issued by Outotec's relationship banks. Changes in advance payments received due to e.g. change in business volume have an impact on the company's liquidity. Exposure to on-demand guarantees has remained high. Cash held by the company is primarily invested in short-term bank deposits and in Finnish corporate short-term certificates of deposit. The lower interest rate levels reduce the interest income generated from these investments.

More than half of Outotec's total cash flow is denominated in euros. The rest is divided among various currencies, including the Australian dollar, US dollar, Brazilian real, Canadian dollar, and South African rand. The weight of any given currency in new projects can fluctuate substantially, but most cash-flow-related risks are hedged in the short- and long-term. In the short-term, currency fluctuations may create volatility in the operating profit. The forecasted and probable cash flows are selectively hedged and are always on the basis of separate decisions and risk analysis. Natural hedging is used as widely as possible and the remaining open foreign exchange exposures related to committed cash flows are fully hedged using forward agreements. The cost of hedging is taken into account in project pricing.

MARKET OUTLOOK

The market activity is expected to continue being robust based on the long-term metals demand projections, declining ore grades and tightening environmental regulations. However, in the short-term, issues related to the somewhat uncertain outlook of the global economy and availability of customers' financing may delay or postpone their planning and decision-making process. Quarterly order intake will continue to fluctuate considerably depending on the progress and maturity of sales negotiations, permitting and the availability of customers' financing. Currently, project financing is available especially for companies with good cash flows and investments in projects in the emerging countries. However, more complex structures of the financing packages and stricter permitting requirements, especially in large investments, lengthen customers' ordering process.

Tightening efficiency and environmental regulations and the declining ore grades continue to attract investments in plant modernization, optimization, services and increased automation. In addition, rising energy prices are driving the industry to improve processes in order to achieve lower unit costs. Global relocation of production is driving the investments to new capacity.

Non-ferrous Solutions

The strong activity in the non-ferrous technology market is expected to continue. Not only are gold, copper, silver and platinum group metals projects being activated and developed, but also zinc and some nickel projects are coming to the market. Investments in new mines and concentrators are progressing fast and the investment activity in the downstream metals refining technologies is continuing. Competition remains tight in new projects; however, there are no material changes to the competitive landscape. Long-term fundamentals remain strong as ore grades decline; thus more processing capacity and advanced technology solutions will be needed in both concentrators and metals refining. Meanwhile, environmental regulations grow tighter and the cost of energy and water rise; increasing the need for new and modern technological solutions.

Ferrous Solutions

The demand growth for iron ore and coking coal used in steel production, is expected to continue. The demand for stainless steel raw materials also shows strong growth and the activity in ferroalloy projects is increasing for instance in China where the authorities are creating tighter environmental and energy efficiency requirements. Outotec received its first ferrochrome project in China in the third quarter and sees further demand. Brazil, India and South Africa continue to rapidly develop their infrastructure and to utilize their large natural resource base. There are several iron ore processing plant expansions and new investments under development particularly in Brazil and India. In addition, the depletion of lump ore deposits is driving sinter and pellet plant investments in India. Outotec's sustainable solutions - both in iron ore as well as ferroalloys sintering and pelletizing technologies - continue to be in strong demand because of their energy efficiency, capacity and environmental aspects. This trend is expected to continue gaining momentum to reduce energy consumption of existing facilities as well as build environmentally more sustainable solutions. In the future, unconventional techniques, such as the direct reduction of iron ore, offer increasingly more opportunities to use lower grade raw material resources as well as optimized energy production and the reduction of CO2 emissions. Deliveries in the Ferrous Solutions business area are mainly large, turnkey projects and fluctuations in sales and profit recognition based on the timing and completion level of a particular project are inherent in this type of business.

Energy, Light Metals and Environmental Solutions

Rising oil prices and the depletion of oil reserves increase the demand for alternative energy sources, such as oil shale, oil sands and biomass. The world's recoverable oil shale and oil sand resources are at least ten times greater than those of conventional oil reserves, with large deposits found in the US, Canada, Brazil, China, Jordan, Russia and Estonia. Outotec and Eesti Energia have jointly developed a new technology solution, Enefit, utilizing Outotec's circulating fluidized bed technology. This technology will be used in Eesti Energia's oil shale plant currently under construction in Narva, Estonia. The Enefit technology can be applied anywhere in the world for processing oil shales as well as oil sands in the future.

The demand for aluminum is also growing. Consequently, aluminum and thus bauxite and alumina projects are expected to further activate. The Middle East is leveraging its advantageous energy position by building new smelters and refining capacity. Outotec with its digestion and calcination technology - an application based on circulating fluidized bed technology - is providing key solutions to the alumina refining process. Furthermore, with its carbon plant solutions, Outotec is a vital partner to the aluminum industry.

The business area's environmental solutions include sulfuric acid plants as well as applications for gas cleaning and heat recovery systems. The outlook for the sulfuric acid technology market remains positive due to the strong activity in copper projects which require sulfuric acid in hydrometallurgical processes. Additionally sulfuric acid is produced as a by-product in pyro-metallurgical processes including those which minimize the impact on the environment. The sulfuric acid market is also driven by an ongoing need from the fertilizer industry. In addition to sulfuric acid plants, any metallurgical process requires off-gas cleaning and effluent and water treatment technologies to reduce its environmental impact.

New opportunities in environmental technologies, such as materials recycling and waste management, are steadily increasing. Interest in industrial waste water treatment solutions is also growing. The technologies acquired by Outotec in the reporting period further strengthen the business area's portfolio.

Services

Outotec's Services business is driven by a life cycle service concept and capacity utilization rates. In addition to operational spares, life cycle services include increasing capacity utilization levels, modernizations, upgrading existing operations as well as new capital investment projects. Customers' need for spare parts, services and modernizations are expected to further increase due to re-commissioning of production lines and higher capacity utilization rates. The scope of services varies from single spare parts to outsourced service agreements. This industry trend creates new growth opportunities on many levels and supports the company's goal to be a life cycle partner for its customers. The businesses acquired in 2010 further strengthen Outotec's service offering and strengthen its capabilities globally.

FINANCIAL GUIDANCE FOR 2011

Based on strong order intake in 2011 and good progress in project execution, the management expects that:

  • order intake is expected to continue to grow,  

  • sales are expected to grow to approximately EUR 1.35-1.45 billion (raised on September 19, 2011,
    previously EUR 1.25-1.35 billion), and  

  • operating profit is expected to improve from 2010 and operating profit margin from business operations is expected to be approximately 8 - 9%. 


Operating profit is dependent on exchange rates, product mix, timing of new orders and project completions.

NOTES TO THE STATEMENT OF COMPREHENSIVE INCOME AND FINANCIAL POSITION

These interim financial statements are prepared in accordance with IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting. The same accounting policies and methods have been applied in these interim financial statements as in the recent annual financial statements and also the following revised standards have been applied which have been effective from the beginning of 2011. These interim financial statements are unaudited.

Adoption of new and revised IFRS standards and IFRIC interpretations

Outotec has applied the following revised or new standards and interpretations since the beginning of 2011, which do not have material impact on the Group's interim financial statements or financial statements:

  • IAS 24 Related Party Disclosures. The changed standard simplifies the disclosure requirements for government-related entities and clarifies the definition of a related party. 

  • IAS 32 Financial Instruments: Presentation: Classification of Rights Issues. The amendment concerns the accounting of rights issues denominated in a currency other than the issuer's operating currency. A derivative associated with the party's equity is an equity instrument if it entitles to receive a fixed number of shares in the company for a fixed amount of currency or other financial receivable. Previously, such subscription rights were classified as derivative liabilities. 

  • IFRIC 14 - Prepayments of a Minimum Funding Requirement (an interpretation of IAS 19). The interpretation removes unintended consequences arising from the treatment of prepayments when there is a minimum funding requirement. The amendment results in pre-payments of contributions in certain circumstances recognized as an asset rather than as an expense. 

  • IFRIC 19 Extinguishing Financial Liabilities with Equity Instruments. According to the interpretation, a debtor and creditor may renegotiate the terms of a financial liability with the result that the liability is fully or partially extinguished by the debtor issuing equity instruments to the creditor. This way the debt is swapped for equity. Such equity instruments are "consideration paid," in accordance with IAS 39.41 and the difference between the financial liability (or part thereof) and the fair valuation price of the granted equity instruments is recognized through profit and loss statement. 

  • Annual Improvements of IFRS standards 

Use of estimates

IFRS requires management to make estimates and assumptions which affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as well as the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of income and expenses during the reporting period. Accounting estimates are employed in the financial statements to determine reported amounts, including the realizability of certain assets, the useful lives of tangible and intangible assets, income taxes, provisions, pension obligations, impairment of goodwill. These estimates are based on management's best knowledge of current events and actions; however, it is possible that the actual results may differ from the estimates used in the financial statements.
