INCAP CHANGES THE ESTIMATE IN REGARDS OF THE SUFFICIENCY OF WORKING CAPITAL FOR NEXT 12 MONTHS
Incap Corporation has reached a new financing agreement with its Finnish bank regarding the loan installment plan and the covenants related to financing.
Based on the re-negotiated loan installment plan and covenants, as well as the actual and the estimated financial development of the company, Incap changes its estimate in regards of the sufficiency of working capital for the next 12 months as given on 25 February 2014.
Today, Incap estimates that it has sufficient working capital for the next 12 months. The re-negotiated schedule decreased the loan instalments to a half of the previous plan during the second half of the year 2014. The financial covenants were mitigated and include only the EBITDA of the last 6 months. The targeted EBITDA level on 30 June 2014 is 66,000€ and on 31 December 2014 613,000€.
According to the estimate prepared on 10 April 2014 Incap is tracking plan on the revenue, profitability and working capital and therefore the company estimates that the covenants are met in the next testing date on 30 June 2014
Incap keeps its guidance for revenue and profitability for the year 2014 unchanged. As stated earlier in stock exchange release on 25 February 2014, the company estimates that the Group's revenue in 2014 will be significantly smaller than in 2013 when the revenue amounted to EUR 36.8 million. The company estimates that the full-year operating result (EBIT) is positive. In 2013, the result was negative amounting to EUR -5.9 million.

The recruitment of the new permanent CEO is also progressing rapidly and will also support us to reach our targets for coming years. I am confident that our latest developments and this new, positive news will give us a good opportunity to reach our goals."
