TOKMANNI GROUP'S PRESIDENT AND CEO MIKA RAUTIAINEN
Strong growth due to Dollarstore, fixed costs had a negative impact on earnings

In the first quarter of 2024, Tokmanni Group's revenue grew by 42.4% to EUR 339.2 million. This significant growth is due to the acquisition that took place in August last year. Like-for-like revenue increased by 1.7% (2.7%). Growth in sales of grocery products of 4.7% boosted like-for-like sales. Customers' purchasing power and confidence in their own finances remained low, and our customers were increasingly attracted by low prices and interesting promotions.

The Tokmanni and Dollarstore integration is progressing according to plan. The main focus is on the consolidation of purchases at Group level. Our target is to achieve annual synergies of more than EUR 15 million by the end of 2025. The synergies achieved by the end of March are already 6.7 million euros on an annual basis.

Tokmanni segment's revenue grew by 4.2% to EUR 248.1 in the first quarter. Like-for-like revenue grew by 1.7%. Comparable customer visits increased slightly on the previous year, while the comparable average basket size increased by 1.2%. The good sales development was driven by the timing of Easter, which was at the end of March this year, whereas in the comparison period it was in early April. Comparable gross margin was 32.8% (31.7%). Comparable EBIT was EUR -1.7 million (-1.9).

Dollarstore segment's revenue was EUR 91.1 million in the first quarter. Like-for-like revenue increased by 1.8% in local currencies. Comparable customer visits decreased slightly from the previous year, while the comparable average basket size increased by 3.4%. Comparable gross margin was 37.4%. Comparable EBIT was EUR -2.8 million.

The first quarter is the weakest quarter of the year in terms of sales and profitability for both Tokmanni and Dollarstore. However, both segments performed reasonably well in the current market environment.

The start of the second quarter has been affected by events in the Red Sea and political strikes, among other things. At Tokmanni, this was reflected as clear shortages in shelf availability and additional costs. The spring season, which is Tokmanni's second most important sales period, only started properly at the beginning of May in southern Finland.

PRELIMINARY FINANCIAL IMPACT OF DOLLARSTORE ACQUISITION AND PRELIMINARY PURCHASE PRICE ALLOCATION

Dollarstore financials have been included in Tokmanni Group financials starting from 1 August 2023. Dollarstore consists of the Dollarstore and Big Dollar stores. Tokmanni consists of the Tokmanni, Miny, Click Shoes and Shoe House stores, as well as the Tokmanni and Click Shoes online stores. Based on refined preliminary calculations the impact of Dollarstore purchase price allocation on Tokmanni Group figures is the following: The preliminary fair valuation of Dollarstore immaterial rights and owned assets will add EUR 47.0 million to the balance sheet, which will be depreciated and amortised in accordance with Tokmanni Group's accounting principles over periods varying from 15 to 20 years. The annual impact of these amortisations and depreciations is around EUR 2,5 million per year on Tokmanni Group's EBIT. The impact of inventory fair valuation will be reported in items affecting comparability and will not impact comparable EBIT but will impact EBIT and earnings per share. The fair valuation is EUR 3.2 million and it was recorded as an expense over six months starting from August 2023.

ADJUSTMENTS AFFECTING COMPARABILITY

Tokmanni Group reports EBITDA and EBIT as its key performance indicators and makes adjustments to improve comparability and provide a better view of Tokmanni Group's operational performance. EBITDA is not a key indicator according to IFRS accounting standards and it represents operating profit before depreciation and amortisation. Comparable EBITDA and EBIT represent the same indicators excluding items that Tokmanni Group's management considers to be exceptional and non-recurring. The items include changes in the fair value of electricity and currency derivatives, which are adjusted by Tokmanni Group as they are unrealised gains or losses related to Tokmanni Group's open cash flow hedge positions, and hence not related to Tokmanni Group's operational performance during the review periods. In addition, other non-recurring costs related to acquired businesses and companies are included in the items affecting comparability.

Tokmanni Group's management uses the comparable EBITDA margin and comparable EBIT margin as key performance indicators when evaluating Tokmanni Group's and its segments' underlying operational performance.

FINANCIAL DEVELOPMENT

Reporting structure

Tokmanni Group consists of Tokmanni and Dollarstore segments as well as Group functions and eliminations. Tokmanni segment consists of the Tokmanni stores, Miny stores, Click Shoes stores and Shoe House stores, as well as the Tokmanni and Click Shoes online stores. Click Shoes' and Shoe House's financials have been included in Tokmanni Group financials starting from 1 March 2023. Dollarstore segment consists of the Dollarstore and Big Dollar stores. Dollarstore financials have been included in Tokmanni Group financials starting from 1 August 2023. Due to Dollarstore's unusual accounting period and lack of IFRS financial statement reporting, Tokmanni Group does not publish figures for Dollarstore's comparison period, with the exception of revenue growth and certain operational figures.

Seasonality

Tokmanni Group's business is subject to seasonality, which has a significant effect on its revenue, profitability, and cash flow. In general, Tokmanni Group's revenue, profitability and cash flow are lowest in the first quarter and highest in the fourth quarter due to Christmas sales.

January-March 2024

In the first quarter of 2024, Tokmanni Group's gross profit amounted to EUR 115.4 million (76.0), and the gross margin was 34.0% (31.9%). Comparable gross profit was EUR 115.4 million (75.5), corresponding to a comparable gross margin of 34.0% (31.7%). The Group's gross profit in the first quarter was boosted above all by Dollarstore's gross profit, but Tokmanni segment's improved gross profit also supported the overall growth.

Tokmanni Group's operating expenses in the first quarter were EUR 89.4 million (59.4), or 26.4% (24.9%) of revenue. The increase in operating expenses resulted mainly from the integration of Dollarstore's operating expenses into Tokmanni Group's consolidated figures. Expenses were also increased by higher property costs and personnel expenses. Personnel expenses represented EUR 53.1 million (33.5), or 15.7% of revenue (14.1%). Comparable operating expenses were EUR 89.4 million (59.2), or 26.4% of revenue (24.9%).

The Group's EBITDA in the first quarter totalled EUR 26.9 million (17.4), corresponding to an EBITDA margin of 7.9% (7.3%). Comparable EBITDA totalled EUR 26.8 million (17.2), and the comparable EBITDA margin was 7.9% (7.2%).

Tokmanni Group's depreciation amounted to EUR 31.9 million (19.5). The growth mainly reflected the impact of IFRS 16 due to the growth of the store network. Depreciation excluding preliminary depreciation of tangible and intangible assets (PPA) arising from the acquisitions amounted to EUR 31.1 million. EUR 0.7 million was recognised for preliminary depreciation of tangible and intangible assets (PPA) arising in the acquisitions.

The Group's EBIT in the first quarter totalled EUR -5.0 million (-2.0), corresponding to an EBIT margin of -1.5% (-0.8%). Comparable EBIT was EUR -5.1 million (-2.2), and the comparable EBIT margin was -1.5% (-0.9%). The increase in operating expenses reduced the EBIT.

Tokmanni Group's net financial items totalled EUR -9.1 million (3.3). The result before taxes was EUR -14.1 million (-5.3). Taxes for the period amounted to EUR 2.1 million (1.0). The net result was EUR -12.1 million (-4.3). The main reasons for the weaker result compared with the previous year were the increase in operating expenses, the increase in depreciation and higher finance costs.

Diluted earnings per share were EUR -0.20 (-0.07).

Balance sheet, financing and cash flow

At the end of March 2024, Tokmanni Group's inventories amounted to EUR 370.8 million (300.7). At the end of the review period, Tokmanni segment's inventories amounted to EUR 271.6 million (300.7) and Dollarstore segment's inventories amounted to EUR 99.1 million.

Consolidated cash flow from operating activities amounted to EUR -40.0 million (-12.9) in the first quarter of 2024. The development in the cash flow from operating activities was affected especially by the change in the value of inventories year-on-year. The company had a total of EUR 211.0 million (139.6) in credit facilities, consisting of loan agreements with financial institutions and a commercial paper programme. Cash and cash equivalents amounted to EUR 18.8 million (4.2), and the Group's financial position is solid.

At the end of March 2024, Tokmanni Group's interest-bearing debt totalled EUR 826.3 million (441.2), including EUR 220.0 million (100.4) in non-current loans from financial institutions and EUR 35.0 million (51.4) in current loans from financial institutions and a commercial paper programme. The remainder of the liabilities mainly consist of lease agreement liabilities reported under IFRS 16. The Group's net debt without lease liabilities was EUR 235.3 million (147.1). The figure increased mainly due to acquisitions and investments in store sites.

Tokmanni Group's ratio of net debt to comparable EBITDA excluding the impact of IFRS 16 was 2.3 at the end of March 2024 (1.6). Tokmanni Group's target is to maintain an efficient capital structure. The long-term goal is to keep the ratio of net debt to comparable EBITDA, excluding the impact of IFRS 16, below 2.25 at year-end.

Tokmanni Group's equity ratio was 18.6% (26.9%) at the end of March 2024.

In the first quarter, Tokmanni segment's revenue grew by 4.2% (4.7%) to EUR 248.1 million (238.2).

CALCULATION OF THE GROUP'S KEY FIGURES

Like-for-like revenue development, %=Like-for-like revenue development is calculated by taking into account the revenue growth of stores that are not considered to be net-new and the revenue growth of relocated stores, as defined by Tokmanni Group to include: (i) new stores opened; (ii) store relocations where the store size changes by 30 per cent or more and the assortment increases or is reduced substantially; and (iii) store expansions where the store size changes by 30 per cent or more. If the store falls in one of these categories, it is regarded as a net-new or relocated store in its opening year and in the following calendar year. Tokmanni Group reduces the net amount of stores closed during the financial year from new and relocated stores.
