Dusseldorf, 25 June 2015 - One of the leading international providers for mobile value-added services and payment solutions, net mobile AG (ISIN:DE000813852), is today announcing its results for the first quarter of the 2015 fiscal year. Its worldwide client base includes national and global mobile operators, media companies, portals, large brands and TV broadcasters to whom comprehensive white-label solutions such as Direct Carrier Billing and mobile TV services are offered.

The group consolidated sales for the first 3 months were 33,639 TEUR (Q1 2014: 35,193 TEUR), a decrease of 1,554 TEUR. This slight 4.4% reduction matches the current year's forecasted sales. The gross margin once again displayed a positive development, rising from 18.5% to 23.6%. The IAV (Industrial Added Value) increased from 6,526 TEUR to 7,954 TEUR (+1,428 TEUR) which is significantly ahead of forecasts. The second Contribution Margin also significantly increased to 3.055 TEUR (Q1 2014: 1,758 TEUR). The segment "Payment Solutions" reported in Q1 2015 a 399 TEUR reduction in sales to 24,280 TEUR (Q1 2014: 24,679 TEUR). The IAV amounted to 5,690 TEUR (Q1 2014: 3,976 TEUR). The main driver of the growth were Direct Carrier Billing and Mobile Payment businesses, where they not only acquired new clients but also managed an increase of business activities with existing customers. The segment "B2O & Media" recorded a sales of 1,879 TEUR which was 410 TEUR (17.9%) lower than the previous year (Q1 2014: 2,289 TEUR). The decrease in sales resulted from declining business activity in some legacy product lines in this segment. The IAV stayed almost unchanged at 1,144 TEUR (Q1 2014: 1,100 TEUR). The segment "Voice Solutions" increased sales by 645 TEUR to 5,140 TEUR (Q1 2014: 4,495 TEUR). This 14.3 % increase was primarily due to the acquisition of new clients resulting from successful reorganisation of the sales structure. The IAV was 494 TEUR, an increase of 16.8% (Q1 2014: 423 TEUR). The segment "B2C" recorded a sales amounting to 2,340 TEUR, 1,390 TEUR below the previous year (Q1 2014: 3,730). The IAV was 626 TEUR, 39.0% lower than the previous year (Q1 2014: 1,027 TEUR). Major reason for this reduction was the loss of a large client in the Spanish market. On a positive development note, "B2C" establish itself in the French market. Plans are to establish connections in more markets in the coming months.

Last year's restructuring is now displaying its positive effects. Personnel expenses have decreased to 3,475 TEUR (Q1 2014 3,905 TEUR).

In the first quarter 2015, the depreciation amount was 2,778 TEUR (Q1 2014: 2,567 TEUR), resulting in a 211 TEUR increase. The higher depreciation in comparison to the previous year was primarily due to depreciation of internally generated intangible assets.

Due to the aforementioned reasons, the consolidated result improved to 535 TEUR (Q1 2014: 322 TEUR) compared to the previous year.

Outlook

Last year's restructuring of the net mobile group, with its focus on the strategic core business, has lead to a positive development in almost all business areas in the first three months of the fiscal year 2015. This meant that the company's planning, which is the basis for the forecast of the Annual Report 2014, was not only achieved, but exceeded. This is an incentive for the new management of net mobile AG to face the awaiting challenges, thereby becoming even more efficient and to implement further measures in order to grow profits within all business areas. The major shareholder of net mobile AG supports this positive development and promotes it through further solid financial backing.
