Nurminen Logistics Plc announced on 11 September 2015 that the company has concluded an agreement for selling Nurminen Logistics Heavy Oy’s shares to Transport Company Ville Silvasti Oy. Share transaction has been validated on 30 September 2015 and the responsibility of Nurminen Logistics Heavy’s operations was transferred to Transport Company Ville Silvasti as of 1 October 2015. The transaction has no significant impact on Nurminen Logistics’ result in 2015 or on Group’s consolidated balance sheet. Nurminen Logistics Heavy Oy is excluded from the consolidated figures as of 1 October 2015.

Nurminen Logistics announced on 21 December 2015 that the company will change its financial reporting practices as of 1 January 2016. The decision is based on the amended Securities Markets Act, which entered into force on November 26, 2015. Amendments to the Securities Markets Act concern, among other things, giving up the requirement to disclose interim reports for the first three and nine months of the year.

OUTLOOK FOR 2016

Nurminen Logistics expects that both its operating result and earnings per share will improve compared to 2015, but that its net sales will fall short of the level of 2015. Decrease in net sales for the year 2016 is due to Nurminen Logistics Heavy Oy’s sale, sale of covered wagons, as well as the probable development of the ruble exchange rate.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS’ PROPOSAL FOR PROFIT DISTRIBUTION

The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting that no dividend be paid for the financial year 1 January – 31 December 2015.

MARKO TUUNAINEN, PRESIDENT AND CEO:

“The year 2015 was characterised by significant changes in demand and operating volumes. We fell short of our net sales and profit targets. Our operating result showed a loss. However, the development of the company’s operating result and net sales varied greatly between business units and operating locations. Despite the challenging market conditions, we were able to improve the company’s cash flow from operations that amounted to EUR 1.1 million.

The value of the company’s sales decreased substantially compared to 2014, which particularly reflected the decline in exports and imports between Finland and Russia. The value of sales was also considerably reduced by the rouble’s depreciation against the euro. Adapting to these changes required us to engage in rapid renewal and restructuring in all of our business units. In 2015, we sold the share capital of Nurminen Logistics Heavy Oy and liquidated some of our old rolling stock in Russia. We also continued our determined long-term efforts to achieve the best service experience in all of our business units.

The most notable successes in our business operations were achieved by the Forwarding and Value Added Services Unit. Favourable trends in the flow of goods, particularly through the Vuosaari harbour, along with new clients and the continuous improvement of efficiency, meant that forwarding services achieved a good result in 2015. The operating result of the unit’s Baltic companies, however, declined substantially compared to the previous year. 

This year, our most significant efforts will be aimed at improving profitability, further increasing the efficiency of operations, and strengthening our growth initiatives and cash flow. We expect to achieve results in these areas within the year.

I would like to thank our clients for their trust in our operations, and I also want to take this opportunity to thank our personnel for their uncompromising and enthusiastic work in a difficult market climate,” says Marko Tuunainen, President and CEO.

MARKET SITUATION IN THE REVIEW PERIOD

Market conditions in the review period deteriorated compared to 2014. Finnish exports decreased by four per cent and imports by six per cent from the previous year. The decline in exports to non-EU countries was particularly steep, with exports to Russia falling by more than a third. In forestry and in the engineering industry, however, exports remained at a good level and the company has a strong position and good clients in these segments. The company has been able to maintain its market share in spite of the challenging market situation.

NET SALES AND FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE 1 JANUARY – 31 DECEMBER 2015

The net sales for the 2015 financial period amounted to EUR 43.0 million (2014: EUR 52.8 million), which represents a decrease of 18.5% compared to 2014. The reported operating result was EUR -2,127 (1,328) thousand. The operating result includes non-recurring items of EUR -209 (-174) thousand. The comparative operating result was therefore EUR -1,918 (1,502) thousand. The non-recurring costs in the review period and in 2014 were related to adjustment measures, personnel arrangements and restructuring implemented under the profit improvement programme. The operating result for the financial period was improved by exchange rate gains on the valuation of rouble-denominated trade payables resulting from the depreciation of the rouble. This had a total effect of EUR 0.7 (2.7) million on the result. The depreciation of the Russian rouble during the review period decreased the company’s financial result by EUR 0.2 (1.5) million. These exchange rate gains and losses had no cash flow impact.

Railway Logistics

The Railway Logistics business unit’s net sales for the review period amounted to EUR 12,292 (2014: 17,935) thousand and the operating result was EUR -58 (2,686) thousand. The operating result includes non-recurring items of EUR -143 (-85) thousand. The comparative operating result was therefore EUR 86 (2,771) thousand. The net sales and operating result of Railway Logistics declined substantially during the review period compared to the previous year due to the further weakening of the rouble exchange rate and the significant decrease in transport volumes in traffic between Finland and Russia, particularly with respect to pulp, paper and chemical industry products as well as machinery and equipment. Due to the depreciation of the Russian rouble, the net sales of Railway Logistics declined by EUR 3.2 million calculated at yearly average exchange rate compared to 2014. Covered wagon deliveries originating from Finland declined by 40 per cent on average compared to 2014. The situation was particularly weak in the fourth quarter. Transport volumes for other wagon types remained at a good level in traffic between Finland and Russia throughout the review period. In Russian domestic transport, covered wagon loading volumes grew slightly, while the volumes for other wagon types remained at the same level as in 2014. However, the intense price competition resulting from overcapacity in the supply of wagons in the Russian domestic market contributed to a decline in net sales in spite of the good loading volumes. 

Special Transports and Projects

The Special Transports and Projects business unit’s net sales for the review period amounted to EUR 5,131 (7,794) thousand and the operating result was EUR 107 (163) thousand. The operating result includes non-recurring items of EUR 0 (0) thousand. Therefore, the comparative operating result was EUR 107 (163) thousand.

Nurminen Logistics Heavy Oy and the special transport business were transferred to Transport Company Ville Silvasti Oy on 1 October 2015.  From 1 October 2015 onwards, the project business has been reported under the Forwarding and Value Added Services unit. A sales gain of EUR 32 thousand was recognised in the fourth quarter.

Forwarding and Value Added Services

The net sales of the Forwarding and Value Added Services business unit for the review period amounted to EUR 25,963 (27,778) thousand and the operating result was EUR -2,176 (-1,521) thousand. The operating result includes non-recurring items of EUR -67 (-89) thousand. The comparative operating result was therefore EUR -2,109 (-1,432) thousand. The net sales of the Forwarding and Value Added Services unit decreased and its result declined due to weaker service demand in exports to Russia and transit logistics.  At the Vuosaari terminal, the processing volumes of pulp, paper and forest industry products were at a good level throughout the year, with the volumes of break-bulk cargo and the engineering and metal industries also developing favourably during the review period. The demand for forwarding services decreased slightly year-on-year, but nevertheless remained at a good level. The demand for the services of the unit’s companies in the Baltic countries was satisfactory in the difficult market climate of 2015, but there was a notable decrease compared to the previous quarter and the previous year. Forwarding volumes in railway transport and transit logistics decreased from the previous year due to the sharp decline of trade with Russia.

NET SALES AND FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE IN THE FOURTH QUARTER

Net sales in the fourth quarter of 2015 amounted to EUR 8.8 million (2014: 12.0 million), which represents a decrease of 26.5% compared to the corresponding period in 2014. The reported operating result was EUR -799 (1,443) thousand. The operating result includes non-recurring items of EUR -83 (0) thousand. The non-recurring costs in the fourth quarter of 2015 were related to adjustment measures, personnel arrangements and restructuring implemented under the profit improvement programme. The operating result for the financial period was improved by exchange rate gains on the valuation of rouble-denominated trade payables resulting from the depreciation of the rouble. This had a total effect of EUR 0.5 (1.9) million on the result. The depreciation of the Russian rouble during the review period decreased the company’s financial result by EUR 0.2 (1.2) million. These exchange rate gains and losses had no cash flow impact.

Fourth quarter’s figures of 2014 include Heavy Nurminen Logistics Oy’s net sales of EUR 1.6 million and an operating result of EUR 20 thousand.

The net sales and operating result of the Railway Logistics business unit declined substantially compared to the corresponding period in the previous year due to a sharp decline in traffic volume between Finland and Russia, as well as the weak rouble. 

In Forwarding and Value Added Services, net sales decreased in the fourth quarter and the operating result declined from the corresponding period in the previous year, particularly due to the unfavourable development of business operations in the Baltic companies and weaker service demand in Russian export and transit traffic.

OUTLOOK

Nurminen Logistics expects that both its operating result and earnings per share will improve compared to 2015, but that its net sales will fall short of the level of 2015. The predictability of the operating result involves significant uncertainty due to the development of the rouble exchange rate. Exchange rate fluctuations have a significant impact on the reported net sales and operating result.

SHORT-TERM RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES

A significant decline of the Finnish and Russian economies and the decline of the global economy would have a direct impact on Finnish imports and exports, which in turn would have a negative effect on the company’s net sales and result. Significant fluctuations in the rouble exchange rate have an impact on the Group’s reported result and financial position.

The company’s financial risks are described in more detail in the Financial Position and Balance Sheet section.

More detailed information about risk management can be found on Investors page on Nurminen Logistics’ website www.nurminenlogistics.com.

The company has received a total of 32 subsequent levy decisions from the National Board of Customs’ Eastern District Office in Lappeenranta, which state that the company and VG Cargo Plc, which has filed for bankruptcy, are liable to pay import taxes from the year 2009. The company’s liability for the import taxes is, at a maximum, EUR 0.5 million. The company does not consider itself liable for the aforementioned import taxes and has not recorded provisions for the associated costs. If there is a case for subsequent levy, the company’s view is that the levy should primarily be directed at the bankruptcy estate of VG Cargo Plc and be paid from its valid customs guarantee. The company has filed an appeal with the Helsinki District Court against the subsequent levy decisions made by the National Board of Customs.

FINANCIAL POSITION AND BALANCE SHEET

The company’s cash flow from operations was EUR 1,143 thousand. Cash flow from investments was EUR 325 thousand. Cash flow from financing activities amounted to EUR 270 thousand.

At the end of the financial period, cash and cash equivalents amounted to EUR 3,273 thousand. The company’s financial position improved as a result of the sale of Nurminen Logistics Heavy Oy and the property arrangement and share issue announced on 4 June 2015. The company’s financing agreement with the financing banks will expire on 29 February 2016.

On 17 February 2016 the company signed a sale and purchase agreement concerning the sale of 380 covered wagons. Wagon sales revenue will improve the company’s working capital, allowing further development of the company. The transaction has no impact on the result for 2016 because wagons are valued in the rubles selling price in the financial statements 2015. The company’s wagon operation continues unchanged with regard to the covered wagons as well.

The covenants of the Group’s loans from financial institutions, namely the ratio of net debt to operating margin and the equity ratio, were breached as of the financial statement date of 31 December 2015. The Group has received a commitment from its creditors confirming that the breach of the covenants will not have any consequences on the Group.

On 27 February 2015, Nurminen Logistics signed a 12-month financing agreement relating to its continuing business operations with its financing banks. The financing agreement includes covenants that are assessed on a quarterly basis.

The company is negotiating with the financing banks on short-term financing, which guarantees the company’s financial position for a period of the closing of the sale. In the future financing banks’ covenants terms will be assessed semi-annually.

Nurminen Logistics Plc has agreed with Ilmarinen Mutual Pension Insurance Company on an arrangement concerning the lease payment schedule of terminals located at the Vuosaari harbor as well as in Luumäki, Niirala and Vainikkala. A proportion of leases allocated for years 2015–2021 will, as an advanced payment, be paid to Ilmarinen by means of 13.5 million euro loans granted by Ilmarinen to the company. The rest of the originally agreed lease will yet be paid during the lease period. As part of the agreement related to the lease payments, Nurminen Logistics Plc arranged a 1.7 million euro share issue. The Board of Directors of Nurminen Logistics Plc decided on a directed share issue in order to allow the immediate implementation of the agreement and to minimize the arrangement costs. The decision on the share issue is based on the authorization granted by the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders on 7 April 2015.

In the share issue, a maximum total of 1,416,668 new shares in the company were offered, in deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emptive right, for subscription to certain members of the Board of Directors and the President and CEO of the company and/or the companies, in which they exercise control. The shares were subscribed as follows: Juha Nurminen and JN Uljas Oy, in which he exercises control, 1,291,667 shares in total, and Jukka Nurminen, Tero Kivisaari and Russian Capital Management Oy, in which Olli Pohjanvirta exercises control, each 41,667 shares.

The Group’s interest-bearing debt totaled EUR 28.3 million at the end of the financial period, and net interest-bearing debt amounted to EUR 25.0 million. The agreement with Ilmarinen Mutual Pension Insurance Company signed in June concerning the lease payment schedule of terminals located at the Vuosaari harbor as well as in Luumäki, Niirala and Vainikkala increased company’s long-term net interest-bearing debt by EUR 13.5 million.

The balance sheet total was EUR 51.0 million, and the equity ratio was 17.0% (23.6%). The most significant factor (-3,5%) contributing to the decline in the equity ratio via translation differences is the substantial depreciation of the rouble.

CAPITAL EXPENDITURE

The Group’s gross capital expenditure during the review period amounted to EUR 468 (506) thousand, accounting for 1.1% of net sales. Depreciation totaled EUR 2.2 (2.4) million, or 5.1% of net sales.
