MODEST GROWTH BUT CONTINUED GEOGRAPHICAL EXPANSION
Revenues reported in the second quarter of 2011 were SEK 72.2 million and slightly above the same period in the previous year. We are pleased to have won some very significant contracts in the quarter but as a company we remain dependent on certain key projects to materialize in order to achieve significant revenue growth.
The reported gross margin for the second quarter is 61.3 % compared with 66.4 % for the same period in the previous year. The cash flow during the second quarter was negative by SEK 25.8 million mainly due to changes in working capital and higher inventory levels to hedge certain long lead time components for production. The negative cash flow is not a result of any change in bad debts. The revenue growth the second quarter amounted to 1.0 % compared with the same period previous year. In fixed currencies the revenue growth amounted
to 12 %.
The second quarter showed a steady repeat business with existing customers and two significant contracts from two new customers, one in the US and one new important cable-TV customer in Germany. The Americas and APAC have improved slightly and EMEA was lower than expected. We continue our strategic direction to expand geographically. Net Insight entered several new countries during the quarter and opened up new markets through our partners in countries such as Turkey, Greece, Egypt, Peru and Colombia.
Our partner network increased with eight new partners to a total of 48 partners. Our indirect sales reached 33 % of total revenues for the quarter and for the first six months indirect sales reached 48 %. We have now established a strong partner network in all target markets and going forward our focus is to leverage these partnerships to achieve accelerated growth.
The operating earnings for the second quarter and the first half of 2011 was SEK 8.3 million and SEK 11.2 million respectively, compared with SEK 11.9 million and SEK 18.1 million for the same period in the previous year. In summary, revenues were higher the second quarter and for the first half of 2011, but we were not able to compensate for the foreign exchange effects on the bottom line.
