Financial results for 2016

Highlights for 2016

  • Strong organic growth in net revenue of 7%, driven by strong growth in both Merchant Services and Financial & Network Services with organic growth of 13% and 10%, respectively. Corporate Services experienced organic growth of 2%

  • EBITDA b.s.i. was up with 16.5%, equivalent to a margin expansion of 260 basis points to 35.5%

  • Net profit of minus DKK 584 million, which as expected was significantly impacted by special items related to the transformation programme and one-off expenses related to the IPO and refinancing. Adjusted net profit amounted to DKK 997 million equivalent to an increase of 28.2% compared to 2015

  • Capital expenditures amounted to DKK 668 million, which corresponds to a capital expenditure/revenue ratio of 9.0%

  • Operating free cash flow was DKK 1,434 million up by 16%

  • The IPO strengthened the capital structure with DKK 5.5 billion, which together with continued strong cash flow generation resulted in a significant deleveraging. Net interest-bearing debt / EBITDA b.s.i. was 3.2x at the end of 2016

Bo Nilsson, CEO of Nets, said,

"2016 was a year of continued accelerated financial performance. The strong organic growth of 7% was powered by transactions and volume increases across all business segments and we are pleased that we have delivered financial results in line with or better than we expected."

"We have successfully transformed Nets into a significantly more customer-focused and innovation-driven company. Today we have a strong foundation for future growth and for 2017 we expect solid growth in both revenue and earnings."


Compared to the latest guidance for 2016, published in the Q3 2016 Report, Nets met or exceeded the expectations on all parameters.

Forward-looking statements

This report contains forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, the statements and expectations contained in the outlook section. Forward-looking statements are statements (other than statements of historical fact) relating to future events and Nets' anticipated or planned financial and operational performance. The words 'may', 'will', 'will continue', 'should', 'expect', 'foresee', 'anticipate', 'believe', 'estimate', 'plan', 'predict', 'intend' or variations of these words, including negatives thereof, as well as other statements regarding matters that are not historical fact or regarding future events or prospects, constitute forward-looking statements. Nets has based these forward-looking statements on its current views with respect to future events and financial performance. These views involve a number of risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those predicted in the forward-looking statements and from the past performance of Nets. Although Nets believes that the estimates and projections reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, they may prove materially incorrect and actual results may materially differ, e.g. as the result of risks related to the industry in general or to Nets in particular, including those described in Nets Annual Report 2016.

Factors that may affect future results include, but are not limited to, global and economic conditions, including currency exchange rate and interest rate fluctuations, delay or failure of projects related to research and/or development, unexpected contract breaches or terminations, unplanned loss of patents, government-mandated or market-driven price decreases for Nets' products, introduction of competing products, reliance on information technology, Nets' ability to successfully market current and new products, exposure to product liability, litigation and investigations, regulatory developments, actual or perceived failure to adhere to ethical marketing practices, unexpected growth in costs and expenses, failure to recruit and retain the right employees, and failure to maintain a culture of compliance.

As a result, forward-looking statements should not be relied on as a prediction for actual results. Nets undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, neither because of new information, nor because of future events or otherwise, except to the extent required by law.
