Overview

Scanfil is a contract electronics manufacturer based in Sievi, Finland, operating a global plant network with nine sites located across three continents. The company focuses on producing industrial electronics for its customers, many of which are large global industrial original equipment manufacturers. In practice Northern Europe is by far Scanfil’s most important market. Scanfil’s strategy is based on a vertically integrated model with which the company aims to provide solutions to cover the entire supply chain during the whole life-cycle of a given customer product.
In our view Scanfil is well-positioned to achieve its target 7% operating margin. We see upside to the current share price when customer product volumes continue to develop positively, helping to lift absolute operating profit. We expect Scanfil to achieve even more diversified customer portfolio; this would justify an increase in valuation multiples.

Scanfil’s Q1 revenue fell more than estimated, which also caused EBIT to drop below estimates, however operating margin remained quite high while demand outlook is already showing signs of stabilization.

Scanfil - CMD notes

Scanfil’s organic growth has been impressive in the recent past, and although a breather is likely in the short-term its long-term potential remains solid due to the account base.

Scanfil - Growth to add earnings in H2

Scanfil’s performance remained strong in Q4 and was largely as expected. H1’24 sees quite high comparison figures, but in our view H2 should again have scope for improvement as Scanfil’s key accounts remain well positioned for growth.

Company update |

Scanfil - EBIT slightly missed estimates

Scanfil’s Q4 top line developed flat as expected, while the EUR 13.4m EBIT missed estimates as there were more than EUR 1m in one-off costs. Scanfil’s FY ’24 guidance stands quite well in line with estimates, so estimate changes are likely to be small.

Scanfil - High margins to be maintained

Scanfil’s Q3 results landed quite near estimates. In our view growth is bound to moderate next year, but EBIT should stay high at around EUR 60m as current volumes hold up.

Company update |

Scanfil - Q3 was largely as expected

Scanfil’s Q3 figures were mostly as estimated. The headline revenue figure remained flat, but growth excluding spot market purchases was 9%. The EUR 15.2m EBIT also landed near estimates, and guidance implies Q4 sees similar levels of profitability.

Scanfil - Margins set to stay high

Scanfil cut FY ‘23 guidance down a bit, but the news wasn’t big and EBIT should stay above EUR 60m also next year.

Scanfil - To be continued on a strong note

Scanfil’s Q2 results were a bit better than we estimated. Favorable positioning has already produced strong results and thus demand outlook beyond this year drives valuation.

Scanfil - Results stronger than estimated

Scanfil’s Q2 results came in somewhat higher than estimated. Top line was a bit higher than we expected, driven by Energy & Cleantech, while EBIT topped our and consensus estimates by some EUR 1m.

Christophe Sut, CEO:

“I am proud to present the results of Scanfil’s first quarter of 2024. Our team improved operational efficiency and prepared for future growth.

As expected, we faced lower market demand compared to the corresponding period of 2023. The focus in the first quarter of 2024 was on improving the efficiency of our operations. The outcome was a solid 6.8% operating margin excluding layoff costs and changes in foreign exchange rates. Reported operating profit was EUR 12.7 million, with an operating margin of 6.4%, compared to 6.7% last year.

Our operational focus translated into improvement in many areas that benefit our customers. The on-time delivery rate exceeded 98%, a notable improvement from 92% in the corresponding period last year. Despite the lower turnover level, we managed to reduce our overall inventory by EUR 10.3 million. We worked closely with our suppliers to build flexibility into our operations and to improve our supply chain competitiveness. The combined improvement in operational efficiency and delivery performance was a positive step in positioning the company for future growth.

On the turnover side, we reached EUR 198 million, equivalent to a decrease of -8.6%, excluding spot market purchases. Reported revenue change was negative 11.5% compared to last year.

The Energy & Cleantech segment continued to grow, and several new customer projects were implemented during the quarter. Turnover excluding the energy saving solutions developed positively and increased by +11.3%. The market remains dynamic and strong as several countries and organizations are building infrastructure for energy transformation. Our outlook for the segment remains positive long term. The overall turnover changed by -3.3% compared to last year’s first quarter.

The Industrial, and Medtech & Life Science segments were negatively impacted by demand changes and destocking which continued with some customers. We are continuing to work closely with our customers to adjust operations and inventory to the prevailing market situation. The strong variation in demand we experienced during the last 12 months has created a new situation with our key customers. Our collaboration has become much closer with a true teamwork and partnership mindset.

Our financial position is strong, gearing was 17.1%, and equity ratio was 55.5%. Our solid balance sheet enables us to make the investments required to develop our business. Our net cash flow from operations was EUR 9.7 million, a very positive result in comparison to EUR -0.9 in 2023. Scanfil is well-positioned and very capable of financing the potential expansion of its operations organically and inorganically.

During the quarter, we finalized our strategy update and communicated it during our Capital Markets Day event at the beginning of March.

Empowerment is our new value. The aim is to build both accountability as well as solution-oriented culture across the whole company. This started to be realized and it was very pleasing to see every site took action to adjust their costs to defend their margin and make Scanfil more resilient to business cycle changes. We have clear targets and processes to follow-up KPIs regularly across the organization, and when needed we can take actions for improvements.

In addition, we clarified our market segment focus and have created three sales organizations focused on Industrial, Energy & Cleantech, and Medtech & Life Science customers. The change was implemented during the quarter, and it is creating an improved focus on developing customer relationships and building a stronger pipeline in those segments.

In February, we accelerated our sustainability efforts by committing to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) organization’s Net Zero target by 2050. In addition to the good progress in previous years, we are convinced that this new initiative will increase Scanfil’s competitiveness in its core market. Our commitment was also received positively by our major customers.

The outlook for 2024 will remain two-fold. In the first half of the year, the market is expected to remain sluggish, impacting on our turnover and operating profit. In these circumstances, we will continue to work on protecting the operating margin and preparing for future growth. We expect the market to pick up in the second half of the year allowing us to further improve our performance.

I am proud of the work done by our dynamic team in the quarter to protect our operating margin in a slow market, while continuing to transform and prepare Scanfil for growth and potential acquisitions.”

Turnover

The turnover for January–March was EUR 198.9 (224.6) million, a decrease of 11.5% compared to the previous year’s comparison period. The turnover decreased by EUR 25.7 million of which EUR 6.4 million were spot market purchases. Excluding spot market purchases, turnover decreased by 8.6%.

Turnover by customer segment

Industrial
Turnover in January–March was EUR 94.2 (111.2) million, a decrease of 15.3% compared to the same period in 2023. Turnover declined due to destocking and demand changes of a subsegment.

Energy & Cleantech
Turnover in January–March was EUR 70.4 (72.8) million, a decrease of 3.3%. Turnover declined due to lower demand for energy saving solutions. Turnover excluding them increased by 11.3%.

Medtech & Life Science
Turnover in January–March was EUR 34.4 (4o.6) million, a decrease of 15.4% due to destocking and demand changes for some customers.

In January–March, the largest customer accounted for about 11% (13%) of turnover and the top ten customers accounted for about 55% (55%) of turnover.

Operating profit

The operating profit for January–March was EUR 12.7 (15.1) million, 6.4% (6.7%) of turnover. Operating profit was impacted by a lower turnover. However, the company strongly adjusted its operational costs to reflect the demand change. An adjustment in personnel caused some lay-off costs. In addition, operating profit was impacted by the negative impact of foreign exchange rates changes. The operating margin excluding the layoff costs and the foreign exchange rates change impact was 6,8% (6.7%).

Net profit and earnings

The net profit for January–March was EUR 9.8 (11.8) million, a decrease of 17.1%. Earnings per share were EUR 0.15 (0.18). Return on investment was 15.9% (18.7%).

The effective tax rate in January–March was 24.2% (18.9%). The tax rate was negatively impacted by taxes of intercompany dividends and the previous year was impacted positively by EUR 0.3 million tax refund which resulted from a mutual agreement process related to the 2014 tax year in Poland.

17. Authorisation of the Board of Directors to decide on the acquisition of the company’s own shares

The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting that the Board of Directors is authorized to decide on the re-purchase of the company’s own shares as follows: 

The Board of Directors is authorized to decide on the purchase of a maximum of five million (5,000,000) company shares, which accounts for 7.7% of all shares of the company at the time of publication that summons the Annual General Meeting. Company shares will be purchased with funds from the company’s non restricted equity, in which case the acquisition will decrease the company’s distributable non-restricted equity. The decision to purchase own shares may not be made in such a way that the total number of own shares held or pledged by the company and its subsidiaries exceeds one tenth of all shares.

The shares will be acquired otherwise than in proportion to the share ownership of the shareholders via public trading arranged by Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd at the market price on the date on which the acquisition is made or otherwise at a price formed on the market.

The shares can be purchased to develop the company’s capital structure, to be used as remuneration in corporate acquisitions or the funding of other business arrangements, or as part of the company’s incentive system or otherwise to be forwarded, to be retained by the company, or to be annulled. The Board of Directors will decide on other matters related to the acquisition of the company’s shares.

The authorization cancels the authorization given in the Annual General Meeting on 27 April 2023 to repurchase the company’s own shares. The authorization is valid for 18 months from when it was granted.

18. Authorisation of the Board of Directors to decide on the issuance of shares, options and other special rights entitling their holders to shares

The Board proposes that the Annual General Meeting authorizes the Board to decide on giving or granting shares, and issue special rights entitling to shares as referred in Chapter 10 Section 1 of the Finnish Limited Liability Companies Act with the following terms: 

The shares and special rights entitling to shares can be given through one or more issues with or without a consideration.

The number of shares to be issued based on the authorization can be no more than 12,000,000 shares, including special rights entitling to shares, which accounts for approximately 18.4% of all of the company’s shares at the time of publication that summons the Annual General Meeting. 

The Board shall decide on the terms and conditions of share issues and special rights entitling to shares. The authorization applies to both the issue of new shares and the transfer of own shares. Share issues and granting special rights entitling to shares can be issued in deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emptive rights if the company has a weighty financial reason (directed share issue). Directed share issue can be carried out without consideration only if it is beneficial to the company and all of its shareholders and it has an especially weighty financial reason.

The authorization cancels the authorization given in the Annual General Meeting on 27 April 2023 to decide on share issues and the issue of special rights entitling their holders to shares. The authorization shall be valid until 30 June 2025.

For reasons of clarity the authorization granted to the Board of Directors in this section or otherwise in this Annual General Meeting to decide on share issue, granting of option rights and the issue of special rights entitling their holders to shares will neither cancel nor replace: (i) the earlier authorizations granted to the Board to decide on issue of option rights or other special rights entitling their holders to shares (among others but without limitation to authorization registered on 22 May 2019 at 15:05:25 maximum of 900,000 pcs of shares and authorization registered on 5 July 2022 at 12:55:56 maximum of 1,200,000 pcs of shares), (ii) already registered option and special rights entitling their holders to shares decisions (decisions registered P007 (10.12.2019/11:47:45), P008 (19.11.2020/10:23:20) and P009 (11.01.2022/15:26:55), P010 (05.05.2022/12:11:50) and P011 (21.11.2022 00:01:37), which remain in force.

19. Establishment of a Shareholders’ Nomination Board

The Board of Directors proposes to the General Meeting that a Shareholders’ Nomination Board be established to prepare proposals to upcoming annual general meetings and, where necessary, to any extraordinary general meetings concerning the election of the board members and remuneration of the members of the Board of Directors and of board committee members. The Nomination Board is also responsible for ensuring that the Board of Directors and its members have a sufficient level of knowledge and experience that corresponds to the needs of the company. In addition, the Board of Directors proposes to the General Meeting that the Charter of the Shareholders’ Nomination Board is adopted. The proposal of the Board of Directors is available on the company’s website www.scanfil.com/agm.

According to the proposal of the Board of Directors, the Nomination Board has three members. Two of those members are representatives appointed by the two largest shareholders, and the Chair of the Board of Directors is the third member of the Nomination Board.

Each year, those two shareholders that hold the largest share of the votes conferred by all shares in the company pursuant to the shareholders’ register maintained by Euroclear Finland Oy on the first working day of the September preceding the applicable annual general meeting, will be entitled to appoint members that represent the shareholders. The Chair of the Board of Directors will request the two largest shareholders, which will be determined as stated above, to each appoint one member to the Nomination Board. The largest shareholders are determined based on their shareholdings in the company’s shareholder register. However, holders of nominee-registered shares and shareholders whose holdings should, according to shareholding disclosure rules, be added together are also taken into account in the appointment process as described in the proposed Charter of the Shareholders’ Nomination Board.

If a shareholder does not wish to exercise its right of appointment, the right will be transferred to the next largest shareholder that would otherwise not have the right of appointment.

The Chair of the Board of Directors will convene the first meeting of each term of office of the Nomination Board, and the representative of the largest shareholder will be appointed as the Chair of the Nomination Board, unless the members of the Nomination Board unanimously decide otherwise. Once the Nomination Board has been elected, the company will make the composition public by means of a stock exchange release.

The Nomination Board must submit its proposals annually to the Board of Directors at the latest on the 31st day of the January preceding the applicable annual general meeting. The Nomination Board must keep the proposals confidential until the company has published the relevant proposals. Provisions of the Finnish Securities Markets Act are applicable to the insider information potentially received by the members of the Nomination Board.
The established Nomination Board will operate until further notice, i.e., until the general meeting decides otherwise. The term of office of the members of the Nomination Board will end upon the appointment of the new Nomination Board. The members of the Nomination Board will not receive any compensation for acting as a member thereof. The members will be compensated for their travel costs in accordance with the company’s travel policy. In order to carry out its duties and where necessary, the Nomination Board may, at a cost approved by the company, retain the services of external experts.

Holders of nominee-registered shares are entitled to participate in the General Meeting on the basis of the shares that would entitle them to, on the record date of the General Meeting, i.e. 15 April 2024, be entered in the shareholders’ register held by Euroclear Finland Oy. Participation also requires that the shareholder is temporarily entered in the shareholders’ register held by Euroclear Finland Oy on the basis of such shares by 22 April 2024 by 10:00 a.m. EEST at the latest. As regards nominee-registered shares, this constitutes due registration for the General Meeting.
