- Operating profit (EBIT) was EUR -1.0 million (EUR -2.8 million)
- Earnings per share were EUR -0.11 (EUR -0.26).

This interim report has been prepared in accordance with international financial reporting standards (IFRS) - IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting standard. The accounting principles of the interim report are the same as those used in the preparation of the 2010 financial statements. Unless otherwise stated, the comparison figures refer to the same period in the previous year. This interim report is unaudited.
Sami Mykkänen, President and CEO of Incap Group: "Revenue developed favourably in the strategic focus areas of energy efficiency and well-being technology industries. The improving general economic situation has stimulated demand and the recovery of investment activities is especially evident in the increased sales of electrotechnical devices."
"Even though our profitability in means of EBIT improved considerably compared to the same period last year, we cannot be satisfied with the negative result. Our main objective is to improve profitability and during the review period we have implemented a systematic adjustment of customer prices and used competitive tendering to select materials suppliers."
"After the renewal of our production structure, our most important development target today is the enhancement of our global material management. We have established a sourcing office in Hong Kong, which gives us better opportunities to increase the efficiency of sourcing operations and to lower material prices. This increases our competitiveness and intensifies our global customer service."
Revenue and earnings in April-June 2011
The second-quarter revenue for the year amounted to EUR 17.7 million, up nearly 11% from the first quarter and 12% year-on-year.
The second-quarter operating loss increased somewhat compared to the first quarter of the year, which was due to the large share of material- and labour-intensive products in production and increased variable personnel expenses. Nonetheless, the operating profit was clearly better than during the comparable period in the previous year, when it was EUR -1.1 million.

Revenue and earnings in January-June 2011
Demand for Incap's manufacturing services developed positively during the first half of the year. Revenue grew by 15% from the comparable period in 2010 and stood at EUR 33.7 million (1-6/2010: EUR 29.3 million). Revenue increased in both customer sectors. The development of revenue was accelerated by the improvement of the general economic situation and the recovery of investment activities, as well as by enhanced sales efforts. The global shortage of components slowed down the increase at the beginning of the year but the availability of components improved significantly towards the end of the review period.
Incap Group's result remained negative even though profitability increased considerably compared with the same period the previous year. Operating loss in January-June was EUR -1.0 million (EUR -2.8 million), or -3.1% of revenue (-9.5%).
Profitability was negatively affected by rising material expenses. The revenue share of material- and labour-intensive products was large especially during the second quarter. In addition, the global component shortage increased material and logistics costs slightly.
Personnel expenses decreased by some EUR 1.5 million year-on-year, which was mainly attributable to the merger of two electronics factories.
Net financial expenses increased to EUR 1.1 million (EUR 0.6 million). Depreciation stood at EUR 1.1 million (EUR 1.5 million). Loss for the period was EUR -2.1 million (EUR -3.4 million).
Return on investment was -6.8% (-18%) and return on equity -96.1% (-126.5%). Earnings per share were EUR -0.11 (EUR -0.26).

|Operating profit/loss (EBIT)||-1,045||-2,767||-62||-3,223|
|Earnings per share, EUR||-0.11||-0.26||-56||-0.33|
Development of operations
During the review period, Incap signed several new delivery agreements, high-volume manufacturing of which was commenced in the spring. Cooperation was commenced with Aidon Oy in the manufacture of electronic modules for remote reading of electricity consumption. Tulikivi Oyj selected Incap as the manufacturer of the control technology for its new line of electric sauna heaters. An agreement on the manufacture of electronic assemblies to be used in arc welding equipment was signed with Kemppi Oy. Prototypes were delivered to solar and wind energy industry equipment manufacturers, among others.
In order to enhance material management, Incap established a sourcing company in Hong Kong, which launched its operations in August. With the help of the Hong Kong -based company, Incap can better use competitive tendering with regard to traditional supply channels, especially for electronics components.
The Group's balance sheet total was EUR 42.7 million (EUR 42.5 million).
Despite the revenue growth, the value of inventories decreased slightly year-on-year and stood at EUR 13.3 million (EUR 13.5 million). When compared to the end of the year, the value of inventories increased slightly (31 Dec. 2010: EUR 13.1 million) due to the weak availability of some electronics components.
The Group's equity at the close of the period was EUR 3.3 million (EUR 4.3 million). Debt totalled EUR 39.4 million (EUR 38.2 million), of which interest-bearing debt made up EUR 24.9 million (EUR 22.9 million). The share of current liabilities of the total debt increased to EUR 38.8 million (EUR 27.9 million) because the company's convertible promissory note due in April 2012 has been transferred to current liabilities on the balance sheet. The parent company's equity totalled EUR 13.9 million, representing 68% of the share capital (EUR 11.6 million, 57%).
The Group's equity ratio was 7.6% (10.1%). Interest-bearing net liabilities totalled EUR 24.1 million (EUR 22.3 million) and the gearing ratio was 739% (523%). The earnings development and financing of the business operations acquisition in India in 2007 contributed to the high gearing ratio.
Financing and cash flow
The Group's quick ratio was 0.4 (0.5) and the current ratio 0.8 (1.0). Cash flow from operations was EUR -2.7 million (EUR -2.4 million) and the change in cash and cash equivalents showed an increase of EUR 0.2 million (an increase of EUR 0.1 million).
In May, Incap signed EUR 3.8 million worth of financing agreements. Of the financing, EUR 1.5 million is Finnvera's counter-cyclical guarantee, EUR 2 million is long-term financing and EUR 1 million a short short-term factoring credit from a Finnish bank, and some EUR 0.8 million is short-term credit from an Indian bank.
Investments amounted to approximately EUR 0.2 million (EUR 0.1 million) and they were related to equipment acquisitions at the Vaasa and India factories.
Personnel and management
At the end of the review period, Incap Group employed 759 people (800). The average number of personnel was 736 (783). At the end of the review period, approximately 22% of personnel worked in Finland (39%), 29% in Estonia (23%) and 49% in India (38%).
Kirsti Parvi, BAA, EMBA, was appointed as Incap Group's CFO and member of the Group Management Team, starting from 1 July 2011. She has worked at Incap since August 2007 as the CFO of Incap's Indian subsidiary.
Kirsi Hellsten, Master of Laws, has been appointed the HR Director of Incap Group and a member of the Group management team as of 8 August 2011. Hellsten has previously worked among others as Vice President, Human Resources in the Industrial & Terminal business area of Cargotec Oyj.
Share-based incentive systems
During the period under review, the Board of Directors distributed 75,000 B options under the option scheme 2009 to the CEO as well as a total of 126,000 C options to the management team members and the company's key employees.
The option scheme from the year 2004 ended in its entirety on 30 April 2011 when the subscription period for 2004C options ended.
Annual General Meeting 2011
Incap Corporation's Annual General Meeting was held in Helsinki on 13 April 2011. The Annual General Meeting adopted the consolidated financial statements for the financial year which ended on 31 December 2010 and, in accordance with the proposal of the Board of Directors, decided that no dividend should be distributed and that the loss for the financial year, a total of EUR 1,561,513.95, be transferred to retained earnings.
The AGM discharged the members of the Board of Directors and the President and CEO from liability. Raimo Helasmäki, Kari Häyrinen, Kalevi Laurila, Susanna Miekk-oja and Lassi Noponen were re-elected to the Board of Directors. At the new Board's organisation meeting, Kalevi Laurila was elected as Chairman of the Board and Susanna Miekk-oja as Vice Chairman of the Board.
Ernst & Young Oy, Authorised Public Accountants, was re-elected as the company's auditor.
The Annual General Meeting authorised the Board of Directors to decide, within one year of the Annual General Meeting, on increasing the share capital through one or more rights issues so that the total number of shares to be subscribed for on the basis of the authorisation is a maximum of 2,168,100, from which a maximum of 300,000 shares can be used in stock options. The Board of Directors has not exercised the authorisation.
Shares and shareholders
Incap Corporation has one series of shares and the number of shares at the end of the period is 18,680,880 (14,180,880). During the period, the share price varied between EUR 0.46 and EUR 0.63 (EUR 0.57 and 0.75). The closing price for the period was EUR 0.58 (EUR 0.60). During the review period, the trading volume was 383,452 shares or some 2% of outstanding shares (26%).
At the end of the period, the company had 1,076 shareholders (1,230). Foreign or nominee-registered owners held 0.6% (0.8%) of all shares. The company's market capitalisation on 30 June 2011 was EUR 10.8 million (EUR 8.5 million). The company does not own any of its own shares.
Short-term risks and factors of uncertainty concerning operations
The risks and uncertainty factors related to Incap's operations are described in more detail in the 2010 financial statements, which is available on the company website. No significant changes have taken place with regard to risks and uncertainty factors during the review period. However, the financing agreements signed during the review period shall considerably reduce the risks involved with financing.
The most significant short-term risks are associated with the development of customer demand and the availability of certain components.
Incap has a financing agreement in force until 31 May 2012, which covers the loans related to the financing of the Indian subsidiary and Incap's credit line and factoring credit line. The financing agreement includes the following covenants:
|Equity ratio||net IBD/EBITDA||Net capital expenditure|
|31 Dec. 2010||7.4%||20.6||EUR 1 million/12 months|
|30 June 2011||11.6%||4.1||EUR 1 million/12 months|
|31 Dec. 2011 onwards||10.9%||5.6||EUR 1 million/12 months|
When calculating the covenants, the factoring credit line in use is not included. The equity ratio on 30 June 2011 was 7.6% and net IBD/EBITDA was 20.9. Even though covenants were not met at the end of the review period, the company has received a written confirmation from the financer that it will not exercise its right to terminate the agreement. The covenants will be next reviewed on 31 December 2011, and every six months after that. According to the current forecast, it is likely that the covenants will not be met on 31 December 2011.
In order to estimate its liquidity, Incap has drawn up a cash flow forecast by quarter, stretching to the second quarter of 2012. The cash flow forecast is based on the result estimate for 2011 and 2012 and on the actual turnover of sales receivables, accounts payable and the turnover of inventories. Based on this cash flow forecast, Incap's need for working capital is increasing somewhat towards the year end. Incap believes that, based on the financing agreements it has signed, the company can cover the financing need for the future growth provided that the Group does not fall considerably behind the estimated targets for result and turnover of inventories.
The single most important factor related to the sufficiency of financing is the turnover rate of inventories. If the turnover rate of inventories stays at the present level, it would not alone call for additional financing. The Group's existing working capital will be sufficient for the next 12 months provided that the present financing agreements remain valid even in case of possible breakdown of covenants. Moreover, Incap has continued actions that were started at the end of 2010 to sell the factory real estate in Vuokatti. The real estate and the loans related to it have been described as non-current assets held-for-sale in the financial statements. The price estimate by an external evaluator clearly exceeds the book value of the property.
On 3 May 2011, Incap signed financing agreements to the value of approximately EUR 3.8 million. Finnvera granted the company a counter-cyclical guarantee of EUR 1.5 million, and EUR 2 million of long-term financing and EUR 1 million of a short-term factoring credit were received from a Finnish bank. The long-term financing has been recorded in current liabilities, because the covenants are reviewed every six months. In addition, the Indian subsidiary has signed a loan agreement with a local bank in India on a short-term credit of some EUR 0.8 million. Half of the short-term loan granted by the Indian bank is available immediately and half will be freed up in August when the audit of the subsidiary's financial year ending in March is completed.
Incap Group has a EUR 6.7 million convertible promissory note due on 30 April 2012. The company management is aiming at renewing the convertible promissory note before the due date.
The deferred tax assets recognised in the consolidated balance sheet (EUR 4.1 million) are based on the Board of Directors' assessment of future earnings development at Incap Corporation and the Indian subsidiary. On 30 June 2011, confirmed tax losses for which no deferred tax asset was recognised amounted to EUR 8.0 million. Should future development not correspond with the Board's estimate, the ensuing write-down of deferred tax assets in the consolidated balance sheet would have a considerable impact on Incap Group's equity ratio and, consequently, on the Group's equity and, for example, the covenants in the above financing agreements.
Outlook for the rest of 2011
Incap's estimates on future business development are based on its customers' forecasts and the company's own assessments. Even though the general economic situation has improved, should the uncertainty related to the economic development in Europe and in the USA increase, it may have an effect on the Incap's customer demand.
The most important near future profitability measures at Incap are enhancing material management. In order to improve the profit margin, product pricing has been adjusted and the effects of changes in pricing will be more evident in the third and fourth quarters. In addition, business controlling activities will be strengthened by developing inter-unit cooperation.
Incap specifies its previous guidance with regard to revenue and estimates that the Group's revenue in 2011 will be clearly higher than in 2010, when revenue stood at EUR 59.2 million. The Group's full-year operating result (EBIT) in 2011 is expected to be positive and, consequently, clearly higher than in 2010 (EUR -3.2 million).
In the interim report for January-March published on 4 May 2011, Incap estimated that its revenue in 2011 would exceed that of 2010. The company also estimated that the full-year operating result (EBIT) in 2011 would be positive and, consequently, clearly higher than in 2010 (EUR -3.2 million).
