Olivier Piou, Chief Executive Officer, and Philippe Vallée, Chief Operating Officer, commented: "Gemalto progressed well in the first semester. The Payment & Identity segment saw another significant +14% growth, with all its businesses growing at double-digit rates, fully offsetting lower sales in Mobile segment. The Platforms and Services activity also posted a strong performance, with revenue up by +20% year-on-year, and on its way to reaching one year ahead of schedule the 1 billion euro yearly Platforms and Services revenue challenge we had set for ourselves in 2013. This further illustrates the success of the Gemalto's diversification and the acceleration of its structural transformation. We will continue to focus our efforts and investment on our highest growing businesses, and are confident in a further increase in gross margin. Entering the last stretch of our current multi-year development plan, Gemalto will begin the planning processes which will define its next milestones."

Basis of preparation of financial information

Segment information

The Mobile segment reports on businesses associated with mobile cellular technologies including Machine-to-Machine, mobile secure elements (SIM, embedded secure element) and mobile Platforms & Services. The Payment & Identity segment reports on businesses associated with secure personal interactions including Payment, Government Programs and Enterprise. The SafeNet acquisition in 2015 is part of the Enterprise business.

In addition to this segment information the Company also reports revenues of Mobile and Payment & Identity by type of activity: Embedded software & Products (E&P) and Platforms & Services (P&S).

Historical exchange rates and constant currency figures

The Company sells its products and services in a very large number of countries and is commonly remunerated in currencies other than the Euro. Fluctuations in these other currencies exchange rates against the Euro have in particular a translation impact on the reported Euro value of the Company revenues. Comparisons at constant exchange rates aim at eliminating the effect of currencies translation movements on the analysis of the Group revenue by translating prior-year revenues at the same average exchange rate as applied in the current year. Revenue variations are at constant exchange rates and include the impact of currencies variation hedging program, except where otherwise noted. All other figures in this press release are at historical exchange rates, except where otherwise noted.

Adjusted income statement and profit from operations (PFO) non-GAAP measure

The consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

To better assess its past and future performance, the Company also prepares an adjusted income statement where the key metric used to evaluate the business and make operating decisions over the period 2010 to 2017 is the profit from operations (PFO).

PFO is a non-GAAP measure defined as IFRS operating profit adjusted for (i) the amortization and depreciation of intangibles resulting from acquisitions, (ii) restructuring and acquisition-related expenses, (iii) all equity-based compensation charges and associated costs; and (iv) fair value adjustments upon business acquisitions. These items are further explained as follows:

  • Amortization and depreciation of intangibles resulting from acquisitions are defined as the amortization and depreciation expenses related to the intangibles recognized as part of the allocation of the excess purchase consideration over the share of net assets acquired.
  • Restructuring and acquisitions-related expenses are defined as (i) restructuring expenses which are the costs incurred in connection with a restructuring as defined in accordance with the provisions of IAS 37 (e.g. sale or termination of a business, closure of a plant,.), and consequent costs; (ii) reorganization expenses defined as the costs incurred in connection with headcount reductions, consolidation of manufacturing and offices sites, as well as the rationalization and harmonization of the product and service portfolio and the integration of IT systems, consequent to a business combination; and (iii) transaction costs (such as fees paid as part of an acquisition process).
  • Equity-based compensation charges are defined as (i) the discount granted to employees acquiring Gemalto shares under Gemalto Employee Stock Purchase plans; (ii) the amortization of the fair value of stock options and restricted share units granted by the Board of Directors to employees; and the related costs.
  • Fair value adjustments over net assets acquired are defined as the reversal in the income statement of the fair value adjustments recognized as a result of a business combination, as prescribed by IFRS3R. Those adjustments are mainly associated with (i) the amortization expense related to the step-up of the acquired work-in-progress and finished goods assumed at their realizable value and (ii) the amortization of the cancelled commercial margin related to deferred revenue balance acquired.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable IFRS measures and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS.

In the adjusted income statement, Operating Expenses are defined as the sum of Research and Engineering expenses, Sales and Marketing expenses, General and Administrative expenses, and Other income (expense) net.

EBITDA is defined as PFO plus depreciation and amortization expenses, excluding the above amortization and depreciation of intangibles resulting from acquisitions.

Adjusted financial information

The interim condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as adopted by the European Union. To better assess its past and future performance, the Company also prepares an adjusted income statement.

Total revenue for the first semester 2016 came in at €1,495 million, up +1% at constant exchange rates and stable at historical exchange rates.

In the first semester of 2016, currency translation effects generated a negative (1) percentage point effect on the revenue generation with a contrasted quarterly pattern. The impact was +1 percentage point increase in the first quarter of 2016, and (3) percentage points reduction in the second quarter of 2016 due to the combined year-on-year depreciation of the US dollar, Chinese yuan, British pound and Brazilian real versus the euro. The hedging program, which aims at partially neutralizing the impact of currency variations on the Company's profit from operations, produced a 0.2 percentage point offset in the revenue comparison to the same semester last year.

Gross profit was up by €12 million, to €586 million, representing gross margin of 39.2%, up +92 basis points year-on-year, a step forward towards the Company's 2016 outlook. The increase in gross margin came mainly from the Payment & Identity segment and in particular the Payment and Enterprise businesses.

Operating expenses were up slightly, by €0.2 million, at €415 million. Resources are being internally shifted to address the Company's most rapidly growing businesses.

As a result, profit from operations was €172 million, up €12 million year-on-year, representing 11.5% profit margin, and an 84 basis points improvement when compared to the first semester of 2015.

Gemalto's financial income was (€23) million compared to (€14) million in the first semester of 2015 as interest expense, foreign exchange transactions and other financial items increased. Adjusted income tax expense was (€29) million in the first semester of 2016, resulting in an adjusted net profit of the Company of €106 million, stable year-on-year.

Consequently, adjusted basic earnings per share came in at €1.20 and adjusted diluted earnings per share were at €1.19, stable when compared to the first semester of 2015.

IFRS results

Amortization and depreciation of intangibles resulting from acquisitions increased by (€6) million year-on-year, to (€29) million, mainly due to the Trüb and SafeNet acquisitions. Restructuring and acquisition-related expenses decreased by €5 million to (€14) million, and came mainly from the IT and facilities integration costs of SafeNet and Trüb and from the implementation of a new information system (ERP) to harmonize finance and reporting systems. The equity-based compensation charge evolved to (€19) million versus (€17) million for the same period of last year. Fair value adjustments related mainly to the non-cash amortization of the IFRS revaluation of SafeNet's pre-acquisition deferred revenue accounted for (€2) million for the first semester 2016 compared to (€67) million for the same period last year.

Gemalto hence recorded an increase of €75 million in its IFRS operating profit (EBIT), at €108 million for the first semester of 2016 compared to €33 million in the first semester of 2015. This performance highlights both the increase in operating profitability and the now marginal effect of the non-cash IFRS fair-value adjustments related to the SafeNet's pre-acquisition deferred revenue. Consequently the IFRS net profit increased four-fold, coming in at €58 million for the first semester of 2016 versus €14 million in the first semester of 2015.

As a result, IFRS basic earnings per share and diluted earnings per share for the first semester 2016 grew four-fold at €0.65 and €0.65 respectively compared to €0.16 and €0.15 in the first semester of 2015.

Statement of financial position and cash position variation schedule

In the first semester of 2016, operating activities generated a cash flow of €177 million before changes in working capital, lower compared to €199 million in 2015 mainly due to an increase in tax payment. Changes in working capital reduced cash flow by (€43) million, less than during the same period of 2015 at (€57) million.

Capital expenditure and acquisition of intangibles reduced by €29 million to (€75) million, representing 5.0% of total Company revenue versus 6.9% of revenue in the same period of 2015.

Property, Plant, and Equipment reduced by €18 million to (€34) million, compared to the high level of last year which related to the initial investments made to support the strong start of the payment business in the United States. Acquisition and capitalization of intangible assets represented a net cash outflow of €41 million compared to €52 million for the first semester of 2015, with capitalization of development expenses representing 1.9% of revenue.

As a result, in the first semester of 2016, the Company generated free cash flow of €64 million compared to a (€64) million outflow for the same period of 2015, up +€128 million year-on-year.

Acquisitions used €3 million in cash during the first semester of 2016, versus €888 million during the same period of 2015 which had seen the closing of both the SafeNet and Trüb acquisitions.

Gemalto's share buy-back and liquidity programs generated a (€0.3) million net cash outflow for the first semester of 2016. As at June 30, 2016, the Company held 861,474 shares, i.e. 1.0% of its own shares in treasury. The total number of Gemalto shares issued increased by +886,199 this semester, to 89,893,908 shares. Net of the 861,474 shares held in treasury, 89,032,434 shares were outstanding as at June 30, 2016.

On May 26, 2016, Gemalto paid a cash dividend of €0.47 per share in respect of the fiscal year 2015, up +12% on the dividend paid in May 2015 which was of €0.42 per share. This May 2016 distribution used €42 million in cash. Net repayment of financing instruments generated a €22 million cash outflow, mainly from debt repayment.

Cash in hand, net of bank overdrafts amounted to €400 million as at June 30, 2016.

Considering the €734 million total amount of borrowings as at June 30, 2016, Gemalto's net debt position reduced to €334 million compared to a net debt position of €490 million as at June 30, 2015. This significant (€156) million variation is due to the strong free cash flow generated by the Company during the last twelve months.

During the second quarter, revenue expanded by +3% at constant exchange rates and was (1%) lower at historical exchange rates. The strong growth in Payment & Identity segment revenue, up +11% at constant exchange rates, continued in the second quarter and was supported by all its businesses, i.e. Payment, Government Programs and Enterprise. The Mobile segment revenue was lower by (5%) at constant exchange rates in the second quarter of 2016, following the steep (20%) year-on-year reduction recorded in the first quarter of 2016. The second quarter improvement in the Mobile segment revenue pattern comes from the slower decline in SIM sales, the continued increase in Machine-to-Machine revenue and the year-on-year growth in the Mobile segment's Platforms & Services activity.

Overall, the diversification of the Company has been reinforced this semester by the +14% growth at constant exchange rates of the Payment & Identity segment, offsetting the lower (13%) sales in the Mobile segment. Payment & Identity at 63% now represents almost two-thirds of the Company revenue, compared to 56% in the same period last year.

Embedded software & Products revenue reduced by (4%) due to lower SIM sales to mobile network operators and lower payment cards revenue in China. The structural transformation of the Company accelerated with the Platforms & Services activity posting a strong +20% growth in the first semester of 2016, to now represent 32% of total Company revenue, compared to 27% a year ago. The Platforms & Services year-on-year revenue expansion at constant exchange rates came from both the Payment & Identity and Mobile segments. In the Payment & Identity segment, contribution to revenue growth came from all three business lines, with an increase in Payment issuance services, in eGovernment services and in the Enterprise cybersecurity solutions sales.

First semester profit from operations increased by +8% year-on-year. As a result of the gross margin improvement, the Payment & Identity segment profit from operations increased by €41 million, up +53% compared to first semester of 2015. The Payment & Identity profit from operations expansion largely offset the lower contribution from both the Mobile and the Patents & Others segments. The Payment business has been the main contributor to the profit from operations increase, benefitting from the optimization of the United States EMV operations after the particularly rapid ramp-up reported during previous semesters. The contribution of the Payment & Identity segment is now 69% of the total Company profit from operations, clearly illustrating the balanced profile of the Company.

Payment & Identity's first semester revenue came in at €937 million, increasing by +14% at constant exchange rates compared to the same period in 2015. The segment's Embedded software & Products sales were up by +7% at €576 million and its Platforms & Services sales increased to €361 million, up +27%.

The Payment business grew by +11% reaching €503 million. The Americas posted the largest revenue growth, on strong sales of EMV payment cards and rapid expansion of issuance services in the United States, offsetting the lower sales in Asia. Gemalto also saw the early stage interest for dual interface cards in the United States, with the particularly rapid delivery of a significant project for a customer portfolio. Payment Embedded software & Products sales were stable and Payment Platforms & Services revenue expanded by +60% compared to first semester 2015.

Revenue from the Enterprise business came in at €217 million for the first semester of 2016, up +12%. The revenue improvement came from all three business lines, Encryption, Authentication and Software Monetization. To meet the increasing market demand for cybersecurity solutions, the Enterprise business is quickly increasing its sales coverage, expanding Gemalto's ecosystem of technology partners and accelerating investment in R&D in order to rapidly strengthen the Company's offering in this growing sector.

The Government Programs business was up +25%, at €217 million. In addition to Trüb's contribution in the first quarter, sales expansion came mostly from delivery commencements of previously won projects in all regions and project backlog continued to expand. Government Programs' Embedded software & Products revenue was up +23%, and its Platforms & Services sales were up +30% compared to the first semester of 2015.

Overall, the Payment & Identity segment's gross margin improved to 40%, up +3.0 percentage points compared to the first semester of 2015. The largest contribution to this performance came from the optimization of the Payment business.

Operating expenses grew to (€256) million in the first semester of 2016, from (€233) million in the first semester of 2015. This was largely due to the increased investments in the Enterprise business, the addition of the Trüb expenses of the first quarter of 2016, as well as to the shift of internal resources from the Mobile segment's SIM business to the Payment & Identity segment in order to address the rapid growth of its different businesses.

As a result, profit from operations in Payment & Identity for the first semester 2016 came in at €118 million, up +53% from the €77 million recorded in the first semester of 2015. Profit from operations margin increased to 12.6%, up +3.4 percentage points compared to 9.2% in the first semester of 2015.

The Mobile segment posted revenue of €557 million for the first semester of 2016. Revenue was lower by (13%) at constant exchange rates compared to the same period of 2015.

Embedded software & Products sales for the segment came in at €434 million, lower by (16%) at constant exchange rates. SIM sales declined by (26%) at €282 million for the first semester, with a (16%) year-on-year decrease in the second quarter. This was mainly due to the tail-end effect in the first quarter of 2016 of the United States operators' mobile payment venture closing, coupled with lower demand in Latin America and Asia. Revenue derived from SIM products now represents less than one fifth of total Company revenue. Conversely, the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) business continued to grow, up +9% year-on-year at €153 million, in line with the expanding global demand of connected devices and embedded secure elements for the Internet of Things (IoT). The certifications of Gemalto M2M "Cat 1" wireless modules by several major Mobile Network Operators and the launch of the world's first Voice over LTE (VoLTE) Cat 1 modules associated with important new design wins during the semester continue to drive the business expansion across sectors and regions.

The Platforms & Services revenue for the Mobile segment grew by +15% in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the second quarter of last year. This led to a +3% year-on-year revenue expansion for the first semester, at €123 million, fully offsetting the adverse effect in Mobile Platforms & Services of the United States operators' mobile payment venture closing last year. Since the adoption of GSMA specifications related to embedded SIMs (eSIMs) remote activation and management for both the Machine-to-Machine and secondary devices for consumer market, Gemalto's Mobile Subscriber Services business has made significant progress, with several key projects wins announced. In particular, Gemalto has been selected to provide its On-Demand Connectivity (ODC) subscription management solution for KDDI, a leading operator in Japan, to enable secure connectivity for connected cars and IoT applications worldwide. Gemalto has also recently provided the ODC service to Orange for the connected Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch, allowing users to securely and indiscernibly connect to their cellular network. Gemalto is fully involved in this global interoperability effort, bringing its technical expertise and neutrality to help both device manufacturers and mobile network operators best align the ecosystem's participants objectives.

Gross margin for the Mobile segment decreased slightly, to 38.1% this semester from 38.4% in the first semester of 2015, mainly due to the expansion in the traditionally lower gross margin Machine-to-Machine business.

Operating expenses decreased significantly, to (€153) million this semester from (€175) million in the first semester of 2015 as a result of the shift of part of the segment's resources to the rapidly growing Payment and Identity businesses.

As a result, the Mobile segment's profit from operations for the first semester of 2016 was €59 million, compared to the €71 million posted in the same period of last year. The segment's profit from operations margin came in at 10.6%, compared to 11.1% in the first semester of 2015.
