DEVENTER, NETHERLANDS


- only available in English -

  • Total income EUR 7.3 million (HY1 2021: EUR 7.3 million)
  • EBITDA EUR 1.4 million (HY1 2021: EUR 1.3 million)
  • Net profit EUR 0.6 million (HY1 2021: EUR 0.4 million)

Deventer, July 21, 2022 RoodMicrotec N.V., a leading independent company for semiconductors supply and quality services, today publishes the unaudited Interim Report and the half-year results for the period ended on June 30, 2022.

The total income in the first half-year of 2022 is EUR 7.3 million, which is equal to the total income reported for the first half-year of 2021 and for the second half of 2021. The stable total income is driven by a continued strong delivery level, especially in the test operations unit. In the first half of 2021 we ordered and received wafers for one of our SCM customers to manage the supply chain during a planned change of an assembly house. About EUR 0.4 million was realized for these wafers as total income and approximately the same amount was accounted for in the cost for raw materials and consumables. This resulted in a higher total income and a higher cost of materials in the first half of 2021 without an impact on the net profit. These parts will be delivered during the second half of 2022 where only part of the selling price will be recognized in the total income. The profit will therefore be positive.

EBITDA increased from EUR 1.3 million for the first half of 2021 to EUR 1.4 million for the first half of 2022. The lower cost of raw materials together with a good cost control have continued to reduce the overall costs in the first half-year of 2022.

Compared to the first half of 2021, the depreciation was lower in the first half of 2022 due to lower investments during 2021. The financing costs remained unchanged.

The net profit for the first half-year of 2022 increased by 47% to EUR 0.6 million compared to the first half-year of 2021.

Net cash flow from operating activities was positive with EUR 0.3 million (2021: positive with EUR 0.9 million). The change is the result of an increase in working capital during the first half of 2022. Net cash flow was negative with EUR 0.6 million (2021: positive with EUR 0.6 million). This was mainly due to the lower net cash from operating activities as well as investments and redemption of the 2012 perpetual bond during the first half of 2022.

The order book increased considerably compared to December 31, 2021, which is encouraging and indicates that a big part of the forecasted increase in total income for 2022 over last year is now covered with orders.

Despite the general supply chain situation in the world, we have been able to continue our test operations at a high utilization level. This shows that we have logistics under control and are well prepared for the future increase in demand”, says Martin Sallenhag, CEO of RoodMicrotec. “The global shortage of semiconductor supplies as well as logistic challenges may still impact our ability to meet our plan for the full-year 2022, but we are closely monitoring the situation to be able to act if necessary.
