LONDON, May 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of Rototec Geothermal Energy Plc (- XE:RGE), the owner of Rototec Oy, the leading Finnish geothermal energy systems provider and the owner of Rototec i Sverige AB, the Swedish's upcoming star in the business, has today announced its virgin unaudited quarterly results for the quarter ended 31 March 2011.
- Reverse takeover of Rototec Oy completed
- Reverse takeover of Rototec i Sverige AB completed
- Listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, under symbol RGE
- Turnover up to EUR 1.49 million for 1 Jan - 31 March 2011, growth 68% to year before
- EBITDA up to EUR 0.20 million for 1 Jan - 31 March 2011, growth 191% to year before
- Net capital expenditure on new machinery amounted to EUR 0.40 million
- Forecast the full year revenue of 2011 to exceed EUR 10.3 million with EBITDA exceeding EUR 2.5 million
During the first quarter of 2011 revenues were up by 68% compared to restated revenues of EUR 0.89 million achieved during the same period last year. EBITDA was up by 191% compared to restated EBITDA of EUR 0.07 million achieved during the same period last year. The restated figures used in the comparatives stated in the financial reports have been compiled by assuming that Rototec Geothermal Energy Plc was in existence for the whole of calendar year 2010 with both Rototec Oy and Rototec i Sverige AB as fully owned 100% subsidiaries.
Commenting on the results, Timo Ojanne, Chief Executive of Rototec Geothermal Energy Plc said:
"We are delighted with these results. The first quarter of the year is traditionally a low season for geothermal energy system providers. Our achievement of 68% growth compared to the same period last year demonstrates that we are executing the right business model and we are doing things right in this rapidly growing market of geothermal energy systems.
Our subsidiaries Rototec Oy in Finland and Rototec i Sverige AB in Sweden are well positioned to capitalise on the growth in these current markets we operate. The reverse takeover of both subsidiaries by Rototec Geothermal Energy Plc has been successfully accomplished and all their operations are now running efficiently.
Our order book for 2011 looks very strong and based on this we are now looking to increase our capacity by advancing our new drilling machinery orders. This will enable us to cope with the high demand for our services that we are currently facing. During this first quarter we have had a net capital expenditure on new drilling machinery equipment amounting to EUR 0.4 million. Based on the current rate of demand for our services we forecast the full year revenue of 2011 to exceed EUR 10.3 million with EBITDA exceeding EUR 2.5 million.
Our successful listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange has been completed on the 28 March 2011. We expect that this will open the doors to the capital markets and enable us to get the right financial footing so that we launch in new territories, with initial focus being the United Kingdom and Norway. We believe that our business concept is a proved one both in Finland and Sweden and applying this successfully in United Kingdom and Norway will enable us to enhance profitability, financial strength and in turn shareholder value.
We are reviewing our strategic objectives for the years ahead and we will be updating you with further announcements in due course."
