(PresseBox) ( Frankfurt am Main, )
Vtion Wireless Technology AG, one of the leading suppliers of wireless data solutions for mobile computing in China, announces its Q3 2012 financial results. For Q3 2012, Vtion reached earnings per share of Euro 0.12, bringing the nine month total to Euro 0.30, this compares to Euro 0.31 per share for the first nine months of 2011. Vtion achieved revenues of Euro 58.73 million for the first nine months of the year, an increase of 5% over the same period in 2011. The net cash position of Vtion remained at a high level of Euro 114.4 million, representing Euro 7.89 per share.

Quarter on quarter sales growth

Through the first nine months of the year, Vtion achieved a total sales revenue of Euro 58.73 million, Euro 21.54 million of which came in the third quarter. This represents a sales increase of 11.3% compared to the second quarter of this year. Vtion's wireless data terminal business segment continued to be the main revenue driver, accounting for over 80% of total revenue for the first nine months of the year. Vtion's mobile intelligent terminal segment (tablet PC products) accounted for the majority of the remaining revenue, with small contributions coming in both the industry-specific computing and online mobile apps segments. The company's gross profit margin was 17% for the quarter and 18% for the first nine months, compared to 18% and 19% for Q3 and nine months in 2011. The slight decrease is primarily due to pricing pressure in the tablet PC business segment. Vtion achieved an EBIT of Euro 5.74 million for the first nine months, which represents a margin of 10%.

Though Vtion's cash flow from operations was Euro -1.91 million for the first nine months of the year, Vtion's operating cash flow in Q3 improved to Euro 1.82 million. The company finished the first nine months of the year with a net cash position of Euro 114.4 million (Euro 7.89 per share), which is essentially unchanged from the net cash position at the end of H1 2012.

"Overall I am pleased with our results in the first three quarters of this year", states Vtion CEO Chen Guoping. "We are facing a difficult macroeconomic environment, which has slowed consumption among telecom customers and thus affected telecom operator procurement. However, I am pleased that we have still been able to grow our sales quarter over quarter. I am glad to see that we now have a better handle on inventories as we were cash flow positive for Q3", he concluded.

Full year outlook

Vtion's full year 2012 guidance calls for revenues between Euro 80 million and Euro 100 million, with an EBIT margin of 10%. On the basis of the results of the first nine months of 2012, Vtion expects its full year results to be around the bottom end of the guidance, due to aforementioned macroeconomic headwinds and pricing pressure in the tablet PC business segment.
