President and CEO Riku Kytömäki:
Exel Composites’ net sales for the first quarter increased by 5.4 per cent from the corresponding period in 2013 from EUR 16.9 million to EUR 17.8 million. Our order backlog improved to EUR 14.3 million in the first quarter of 2014 from EUR 10.5 million in the last quarter of 2013, corresponding to a 36 per cent increase. 

In some markets, such as cleaning and maintenance, machine industry and general industries, we started to see early signs of improvement, but generally the market remains challenging. 

Exel Composites’ operating profit nearly tripled from EUR 0.7 million to EUR 1.9 million due to our efficiency improvement and better cost control. We continued to develop the Group’s operations in order to further enhance productivity and synergies across the units.

Decisions of the 2014 Annual General Meeting
Exel Composites’ Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) was held on 27 March 2014. The financial accounts of the Group were approved and the members of the Board of Directors and the President were discharged from their liabilities for the financial year 2013. The AGM approved the Board’s proposal not to distribute any dividend for the financial period that ended on 31 December 2013.

The Annual General Meeting authorized the Board of Directors to acquire the Company’s own shares by using unrestricted equity. The maximum amount to be acquired is 600,000 shares. The authorization is valid until 30 June 2015.

The AGM elected to the Board of Directors five members based on the proposal by the Nomination Board. The following members of the Board of Directors were re-elected: Heikki Hiltunen, Peter Hofvenstam, Göran Jönsson and Reima Kerttula. Kerstin Lindell was elected as new member of the Board of Directors. The term of office of the Board members continues until the end of next Annual General Meeting. At the formative meeting of the Board of Directors held after the Annual General Meeting, the Board of Directors elected from among its members Peter Hofvenstam as its Chairman.

The AGM decided that the annual remuneration for the Board members be unchanged, i.e. the Chairman of the Board of Directors be paid a yearly remuneration of EUR 34,000 and additionally EUR 1,500 for attendance at Board and committee meetings and other similar Board assignments and the other Board members be paid a yearly remuneration of EUR 16,000 and additionally EUR 1,000 for attendance at Board and committee meetings and other similar Board assignments and that travel expenses and other out-of-pocket expenses arising from the Board work be compensated in accordance with the Company’s established practice and travel rules. Out of the yearly remuneration 60 per cent will be paid in cash and 40 per cent in Exel Composites Plc shares, which were acquired directly for and on behalf of the members of the Board of Directors during 2 April – 10 April 2014 from the stock exchange in amounts corresponding to EUR 13,600 for the Chairman and EUR 6,400 for each of the other members. 

Management
A new incentive program for the Company executives was approved by the Board of Directors in February 2014. The aim of the new program is to combine the objectives of the shareholders and the executives in order to increase the value of the Company, to commit the executives to the Company and to offer the executives a competitive reward program. The new program is based on a long-term monetary performance reward, and the program is targeted at approximately 20 executives for the earning period 2014 − 2016. The President and CEO and the members of the Group Management Team are included in the target group of the new incentive program.

The incentive program includes one earning period, the calendar years 2014 − 2016. The potential long-term monetary performance reward from the program for the earning period 2014 – 2016 will be based on the Group’s cumulative Economic Profit and on the Group’s Total Shareholder Return (TSR).

The potential reward from the earning period 2014 – 2016 will be paid in 2017. No reward will be paid to an executive, if his or her employment or service with the Group Company ends before the reward payment.

The maximum reward to be paid on the basis of the earning period 2014 – 2016 will be one million EUR.

Significant related-party transactions
Exel Composites’ permanent public insiders include Exel Composites’ Board members, the President and CEO and the members of the Group Management Team. No significant related-party transactions were conducted by the Group or the permanent insiders during the period under review.

Organization and personnel
The number of employees on 31 March 2014 was 421 (436), of whom 202 (209) worked in Finland and 219 (227) in other countries. The average number of personnel during the first quarter of 2014 was 418 (439).

Health, safety and environment
Special attention will be given to occupational health and safety issues in 2014. The Nanjing unit in China achieved the Health and Safety standard ISO 18001 in 2013. It is our intention to roll out this certification over all sites.

Risks and uncertainties
The most significant near-term business risks are related to the general economic development, government regulations and financial crisis in the Euro area as well as to market demand. Continuing low demand in certain markets or regions may require further corrective actions which can have an impact on the profitability. The possible uncertainties in the Russian market will have limited impact on Exel Composites. 

Raw material prices, energy cost and other cost increases may continue to put pressure on profitability. The possible new European Community’s anti-dumping tariffs on Chinese glass fiber may have a negative effect on the result in terms of increased raw material prices. Currency rate changes, price competition and alternative competing materials may also have a negative effect on the result. The availability and cost of financing may continue to have an effect on the demand and increase the risk of credit losses.

Near-term outlook
The market has stabilized but remains challenging. Uncertainties relating to general growth prospects in the economy continue. Some positive signs can be seen especially in the laminate and demanding carbon tube markets. The Company invests in growth by reinforcing the organization, especially in sales and operations development. The Company will monitor the general market development and react with additional measures if needed. The Company is well-positioned to grow profitably when the markets recover.
