- Suominen specifies its guidance regarding operating profit for 2015. The company expects that for the full year 2015, operating profit from continuing operations excluding non-recurring items will improve markedly from year 2014. Previously, Suominen estimated that for the full year 2015, its operating profit excluding non-recurring items from continuing operations would improve from year 2014.

President & CEO Nina Kopola comments on Suominen’s third quarter of 2015:

“In the euro area, the consumer confidence index decreased slightly in the third quarter but was still on a significantly higher level than at the beginning of the year. In the United States, the consumer confidence index increased somewhat. North America and Europe are Suominen’s largest market areas.

Suominen’s strong financial development continued in Q3. Net sales grew by 11% from the comparison period to EUR 114.9 million. Operating profit excluding non-recurring items rose to EUR 9.8 million, corresponding to 8.5% of net sales. Profit as well as earnings per share for Q3 continued at the strong level of the second quarter and were EUR 5.4 million and EUR 0.02, respectively. So far, I am very pleased with Suominen’s development in 2015 and feel confident also about the final quarter of the year. We specified our guidance regarding the growth of operating profit, and now estimate that for the full year 2015, operating profit from continuing operations excluding non-recurring items will improve markedly from year 2014. Previously, we estimated that operating profit excluding non-recurring items would improve from year 2014.

In September, we decided to extend our growth investment program to approximately EUR 60 million due to the promising growth prospects in nonwovens with higher added value. Earlier, we had estimated that we will spend EUR 30–50 million in growth investments during the strategic period of 2015–2017. At the same occasion, we stated that the total value of our investment in a new wetlaid line at the Bethune plant in SC, US, including both equipment and facilities, will be close to EUR 50 million. The new production line will be tailor-made, based on our unique nonwovens technology expertise, enabling us to supply our customers with exclusive, best-in-class nonwoven products for wiping, medical and hygiene applications. The investment is in line with our strategic intent to achieve both product leadership in our industry and a net sales growth rate that exceeds the industry average.

Moreover, the other projects in our growth investment program are progressing as planned and will be completed by the end of the year.

After the end of the review period, Mr. Ernesto Levy was appointed Senior Vice President, Convenience business area and a member of the Suominen Corporate Executive Team. Levy has an impressive track record in leading consumer brand companies, such as Novartis and Procter & Gamble. His capabilities will bring complementary competencies to our leadership team, which will be especially valuable as we execute our growth strategy.”

NET SALES

July-September 2015


In the third quarter of 2015, Suominen’s net sales grew by 11% from the comparison period to EUR 114.9 million (103.3). Calculated without the effect of exchange rates, net sales remained approximately on the same level as in the corresponding period, since the strengthening of the US dollar compared to euro, Suominen’s reporting currency, increased the third quarter net sales by approximately EUR 11 million.

Suominen has two business areas, Convenience and Care. Net sales of Convenience business area in July-September was EUR 107.5 million (94.4) and net sales of Care business area EUR 7.5 million (8.9). Convenience business area supplies nonwovens as roll goods for wiping products and travel and catering applications. Care business area manufactures nonwovens for hygiene products and medical applications.

January-September 2015

In January-September 2015, Suominen’s net sales grew by 14.4% from the comparison period to EUR 339.8 million (297.0). The strengthening of the US dollar compared to euro, Suominen’s reporting currency, increased the net sales in January-September by approximately EUR 35 million.

Net sales of Convenience business area in January-September were EUR 315.2 million (272.9) and net sales of Care business area EUR 24.7 million (24.1). The main application areas for nonwoven materials supplied by Suominen in January-September were baby wipes (accounting for 40% of the sales), personal care wipes (24%), household wipes (17%), industrial wipes (11%), and hygiene and medical products (7%). Changes in the portfolio during January-September 2015 were minor compared to the corresponding period in the previous year. All nonwovens for wiping products belong to the Convenience business area, and nonwovens for hygiene and medical products to the Care business area.

OPERATING PROFIT AND RESULT

July-September 2015


Operating profit excluding non-recurring items increased by 12.1% and amounted to EUR 9.8 million (8.7). Operating profit was EUR 9.8 million (8.4). There were no non-recurring items in the third quarter. Non-recurring items reported in the third quarter of 2014 amounted to EUR -0.3 million and were attributable to restructuring costs as well as costs related to acquisition of the Brazilian unit.

The strengthening of the US dollar compared to euro, Suominen’s reporting currency, increased the operating profit by approximately 14%. If calculated with the average USD exchange rate of July-September 2014, operating would have been EUR 1.4 million lower.

Profit before income taxes for continuing operations in the third quarter was EUR 8.5 million (4.0) and profit for the period for continuing operations EUR 5.4 million (0.6).

January-September 2015

Operating profit excluding non-recurring items increased by 31% and amounted to EUR 27.0 million (20.6). Operating profit was EUR 27.5 million (19.8). Non-recurring items in the review period, EUR +0.5 million, consisted of reversal of previously made impairment losses of the re-opened production line in Nakkila plant in Finland. The non-recurring items reported in January-September 2014 amounted to EUR
-0.9 million, of which EUR -1.1 million were costs related to restructuring and acquisition of the Brazilian unit and EUR +0.2 million were items related to closing down of the fiber production in Nakkila in 2012.

Profit before income taxes for continuing operations was EUR 23.6 million (12.7), and profit for the period for continuing operations was EUR 15.1 million (5.4).

FINANCING

The Group’s net interest-bearing liabilities at the end of the review period, 30 September 2015, amounted to EUR 36.7 million (44.7). Gearing was 30.5% (43.3%) and equity ratio 44.3% (41.0%).

In January-September, net financial expenses were EUR -3.9 million (-7.1), or 1.2% (2.4%) of net sales. Fluctuations in exchange rates increased the financial expenses by EUR -0.9 million. Financial expenses increased also by EUR -0.4 million as an impairment loss of shares in a real estate company, classified as available-for-sale, was recognized. The shares of the real estate company were divested in July 2015. Net financial expenses in the corresponding period in 2014 include a non-recurring loss totaling to EUR -0.9 million from discontinuing of interest rate hedging due to refinancing as well as transaction costs of EUR -2.0 million related to the previous syndicated loan.


Cash flow from operations was in the third quarter EUR 7.9 million (16.9) and in January-September EUR 16.3 million (27.8). Cash flow from operations per share in January-September was EUR 0.06 (0.11). The financial items in the cash flow from operations, in total EUR -6.7 million (-6.0), were principally impacted by currency forward contracts hedging equity and the interests paid during the reporting period. EUR 12 million was tied up in working capital (2014: released 4.0). Cash flow from financing improved by EUR 0.3 million due to repayments of loan receivables granted in connection with the divestment of the Flexibles business area in July 2014. Cash flow from financing was decreased by repayment of loan in September by EUR 3.3 million.

CAPITAL EXPENDITURE

In January-September, the gross capital expenditure totaled EUR 13.8 million (2014: 4.4 for continuing operations). Gross capital investments increased mainly due to the beginning of the investment in a new wetlaid production line at the Bethune plant in SC, US. Other major investments were related to modernization of the Alicante plant in Spain as well as to re-opening of a production line in Nakkila plant in Finland. The other investments were mainly for maintenance.

In September, Suominen announced that it will extend its growth investment program to approximately EUR 60 million. Earlier, the company had estimated that it will spend EUR 30–50 million in growth investments during the strategic period of 2015–2017. The total value of the investment project at the Bethune plant, including both equipment and facilities, will be close to EUR 50 million. The new line is anticipated to be installed during the second half of 2016.

Depreciation, amortization and impairment losses for the review period amounted to EUR 13.6 million (11.4 for continuing operations). The amount does not include the reversal of an impairment loss made at Nakkila plant due to the re-opening of a production line. The reversal amounted to EUR 0.5 million.

BUSINESS COMBINATIONS AND DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

Business combinations


No business combinations were reported during the review period. Suominen

CHANGES IN CORPORATE EXECUTIVE TEAM

Mr. Timo Hiekkaranta, Senior Vice President of Suominen’s Convenience business area and a member of Suominen’s Corporate Executive Team, left Suominen at the end of August to pursue his career outside the company.

Suominen announced on 6 October 2015 that Mr. Ernesto Levy, MBA, has been appointed Senior Vice President, Convenience business area and a member of the Corporate Executive Team at Suominen Corporation, effective 20 October, 2015. Ernesto Levy has an impressive track record in leading consumer brand organizations, such as Novartis and Procter & Gamble.


BUSINESS RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES

The estimate on the development of Suominen’s net sales is in part based on forecasts and delivery plans received from customers. Changes in these forecasts and plans resulting from changes in the market conditions or in customers’ inventory levels may affect Suominen’s net sales. Due to the continued uncertainty in the general economic situation and the cautious consumer purchasing habits, the forecasts include uncertainty.

Suominen’s customer base is fairly concentrated, which adds to the customer-specific risk. Long-term contracts are preferred in the case of the largest customers. In practice, the customer relationships are long-term and last for several years. 

The continued positive development of Suominen’s business operations in the United States increases the relevance of the exchange rate risk related to USD in the Group’s total exchange risk position. Suominen hedges this foreign exchange position in accordance with its hedging policy.

The risks characteristic to South American market, including significant changes in business environment or exchange rates, could have an impact on Suominen’s operations in Brazil.

Suominen purchases significant amounts of oil- and pulp-based raw materials annually. Raw materials are the largest cost item in operations. Changes in the global market prices of raw materials affect the company’s profitability. Extended interruptions in the supply of Suominen’s main raw materials could disrupt production and have a negative impact on the Group’s overall business operations. As Suominen sources its raw materials from a number of major international suppliers, significant interruptions are unlikely.

Suominen has numerous regional, national and international competitors in its different product groups. There is currently oversupply in several product groups, particularly in Europe. If Suominen is not able to compete through an attractive product offering, it may lose some of its market share, and the competition may lead to increased pricing pressure on the company’s products.

The Group’s damage risks are insured in order to guarantee the continuity of operations. Suominen has valid damage and business interruption insurances according to which it is estimated that the damages can be covered and the financial losses caused by an interruption compensated.

The sensitivity of Suominen’s goodwill to changes in business conditions is described in the notes to the consolidated financial statements 2014. Actual cash flows may deviate from the forecasted future discounted cash flows, as the long economic lifetime of the company’s non-current assets, as well as changes in the estimated product prices, production costs, and discount rates used in calculations may result in impairment losses. The fair value based on the value in use of assets or businesses in total or in part does not necessarily correspond to the price that a third party would pay for them.

General risks related to business operations are described in the Report of the Board of Directors 2014.

BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT

Suominen’s nonwovens are, for the most part, used in daily consumer goods, such as wet wipes as well as hygiene and medical products. The general economic situation determines the development of consumer demand, even though the demand for consumer goods is not very cyclical in nature. North America and Europe are the largest market areas for Suominen. Moreover, Suominen gained a foothold in the growing South American markets through an acquisition in February 2014.

In the euro area, the consumer confidence index decreased slightly in the third quarter but was still on a significantly higher level than at the beginning of the year. In the United States, the consumer confidence index increased somewhat.

Suominen assesses the trend in the demand for its products on the basis of both the general market situation and, above all, on the basis of the framework agreements drawn up with its customers. Suominen estimates that in 2015, the growth in the demand for its products will, on average, continue at the pace of 2014.

OUTLOOK FOR 2015

Suominen specifies its guidance regarding operating profit for 2015. The company expects that for the full year 2015, operating profit from continuing operations excluding non-recurring items will improve markedly from year 2014. Previously, Suominen estimated that for the full year 2015, its operating profit excluding non-recurring items from continuing operations would improve from year 2014. For net sales, Suominen repeats its previous estimate, disclosed on 17 July 2015, that for the full year 2015 the company expects its net sales for continuing operations to improve from year 2014.

Suominen’s net sales of the continuing operations in 2014 amounted to EUR 401.8 million and operating profit excluding non-recurring items was EUR 26.9 million.
