Digia’s consolidated net sales for the reporting period were EUR 99.7 (100.4) million, down 0.7 per cent from the same period in 2012.
The operating profit for the period fell slightly from the comparison figures. This was due to the fact that in 2012 the company had EUR 4.5 million in accrued income from the mobile contract engineering business, which no longer existed in 2013 as the business unit was closed down at the end of 2012. The comparison figures for 2012 also include an exceptional net sales item of EUR 4.2 million related to a Qt business acquisition licensing deal made in the third quarter of 2012. Excluding the effect of this licensing deal, the accrued income of the Qt business grew both in the review period (25.0 per cent) and in Q4 (23.7 per cent). Thanks to this growth, the whole company’s net sales grew like-for-like, both in the review period (6.7 per cent) and in the fourth quarter (7.2 per cent). Besides the Qt business, net sales were positively affected by other operations, especially an individual third-party software maintenance deal with low margins, worth EUR 2.4 million, made in the second quarter.
During the reporting period, the product business accounted for EUR 41.0 (36.5) million or 41.1 (36.4) per cent of consolidated net sales.
International operations accounted for EUR 21.1 (20.6) million or 21.2 (20.5) per cent of consolidated net sales.
The Qt business accounted for EUR 19.9 (18.7) million of consolidated net sales.
