Tommi Tervanen, CEO of Kotipizza Group

 

"Kotipizza's chain-based net sales continued their strong growth in the first quarter of the financial year. The chain's net sales continued their excellent development both in terms of same-store sales and the number of customers. In brick-and-mortar restaurants, the number of customers increased by 13.3% and the average purchase by 3.3%. We also continued to make progress in our online sales - during the review period, orders made through the online store amounted to roughly a tenth of the net sales in brick-and-mortar restaurants. The chain-based net sales growth was 18.5% in the first quarter, exceeding the average growth in the Finnish fast food market. We expect the chain-based net sales to continue to develop favorably. Achieving similar relative growth figures will, however, become more challenging month by month as we draw comparisons to months of very strong growth in the previous year.

 

There are several factors behind the strong growth in chain-based net sales. One of the main reasons is Kotipizza's brand and concept reform that was launched at full speed in the beginning of 2015 and which has now been mostly finalized. The Group has consistently developed the Kotipizza chain in the spirit of the fast casual phenomenon, emphasizing the freshness, authenticity and sustainability of our food, as well as actively following the developments in food trends and consumer preferences. A good example of our achievements is the MSC ecolabel awarded to the Kotipizza chain during the review period, proving that all fish and seafood products we use come from sustainable sources and responsible fisheries. Kotipizza is the first pizza chain in the world to merit the MSC label. The MSC ecolabel has been well received among consumers, and by securing the label Kotipizza has materially gained positive media attention in Finland and abroad. The chain's newly introduced vegetarian products have also been well received by consumers and the media.

 

In accordance with the strong sales growth, we have not forgotten to invest in future growth and in the future of the Kotipizza chain. Our new creative director Risto Mikkola, responsible for the menu and developing new food concepts, together with development director Riikka Ahtiainen, responsible for new restaurant and service concepts, joined us during the review period. Amid recent growth, we have also invested in the well-being of our personnel by starting a programme which focuses on both physical and social well-being of our people.

 

Comparable net sales of the Group grew 19% in the first quarter of the year and were 18.3 MEUR (15.4). Comparable EBITDA was 1.62 MEUR (1.29) in the first quarter, representing a growth of 26%. Our recent investments to future growth in terms of e.g. recruitments and market studies were visible as growth in our fixed costs, but we are still on pace with our medium-term financial goals, both in terms of the development of chain-based sales as well as that of EBITDA. The Group had a solid financial standing at the end of the quarter with net gearing at 23 percent and equity ratio of 51 percent.

 

There are no material changes in the market environment since the close of the previous financial year in the end of January. According to the estimate of the Finnish Hospitality Association MaRa, the growth of sales in the restaurant sector will continue in 2017 at nearly the previous year's level, along with the growth of the Finnish national economy and the increased consumer confidence. The development will be particularly positive in the fast food sector, as fast food restaurants account for a considerable proportion of restaurant dining.

 

The growth of sales in the Kotipizza chain has continuously outperformed the growth of the entire restaurant market and the fast food market. It can even be estimated that the strong growth of the Kotipizza chain has contributed to the more positive development of the fast food market compared with the rest of the restaurant market. We believe that the financial development of the restaurant business and consumer trends support Kotipizza Group's investment in the fast casual concept, that is, restaurants that offer casual, fresh and responsibly produced food in a restaurant environment.

 

We estimate that the group's chain-based net sales will, during the present financial year, grow by more than ten (10) percent as compared to the previous financial year, and that the comparable gross margin / EBITDA will grow as compared to the previous financial year."

 


 

GROUP NET SALES

 

February-April 2017

Chain-based net sales continued strong and grew 18.5% (18.3%) year on year in the first quarter of the financial year and were 24.2 MEUR (20.4). Average purchase grew 3.3% and the number of customers 13.3% compared to the same period in the previous year. The strong performance is based on renewed concept, brand, successful marketing, and the emphasis placed on our online store and digital presence. Chain sales of the Pizzataxi chain, which was acquired in February, is not included in the chain-based net sales as none of the Pizzataxi restaurants have thus far been converted into Kotipizza restaurants during the review period.

 

Kotipizza received strong visibility with its cooperation with very popular tv-format Putous, which kept the brand especially in the mind of families with kids on six Saturdays from the beginning of February until mid-March. Also, as the Kotipizza chain was awarded the MSC ecolabel in the beginning of February, proving that all fish and seafood products we use come from sustainable sources and responsible fisheries, we launched a tv ad around our Special Opera pizza that also promoted the MSC ecolabel. In March, a campaign directed to elderly people reminding them of the benefits of Kotipizza's rye dough was launched on tv. A coupon campaign was also launched, targeting younger consumers. In April, we ran tv advertising that focused on Kotipizza's pineapple as well as a strong online campaign around our new vegetarian product Härkis. Kotipizza had altogether 69 campaign days during the first quarter of this year compared to 60 in the previous year. Kotipizza's online sales also continued to grow. According to a recent market study, Kotipizza has made significant progress in reaching new customers as the amount of consumer who "Don't go to Kotipizza at all" has decreased from 40 percent in last autumn to the current rate of 17 percent.

 

Comparable net sales for the first quarter of the financial year were 18.3 MEUR (15.4) and they grew 18.8% compared to same period in the previous year. Reported net sales were 19.2 MEUR (15.4) and they grew 24.9% compared to same period in the previous year. The reported sales included 0.9 MEUR items affecting comparability related to advertising and marketing fund flows of Kotipizza's Franchisee Co-operative, which pass through Kotipizza-division's P&L without result effect. Comparable net sales growth was mainly based on Foodstock's increased sales volume to Kotipizza underpinned by the good restaurant chain sales development. Helsinki Foodstock's other third-party customers also increased net sales. The net sales of Foodstock grew 21.2% year on year in the first quarter of the financial year and were 14.7 MEUR (12.1). The Kotipizza segment's net sales increased 44.2% compared to the previous year and were 4.5 MEUR (3.1). The Chalupa segment's net sales in the first quarter of the financial year were EUR 76 thousand (EUR 180 thousand). Decline in net sales compared to the previous year was due to all Chalupa restaurants were owned by Chalupa franchisees. Chalupa's revenue recognition is now reported in accordance with the reporting principles used in franchising. In the previous year, only two out of five Chalupa restaurants were owned by franchisees and the remaining three were still fully consolidated to the Chalupa segment's numbers.

 

The chain-based net sales is the total combined net sales of the company's franchisees, based on which the company's franchising fees are invoiced monthly.

 

GROUP EBIT

 

February-April 2017

Comparable EBIT of the Group was 1.32 MEUR (1.05) in the first quarter of the financial year. Reported EBIT was 1.27 MEUR (1.05). Reported EBIT included MEUR 0.05 of items affecting comparability (calculatory, non-cash), which were related to incentive plan introduced on 6 May 2016 and other incentive plans in the group. The reported EBIT of the previous year did not include items affecting comparability.

 

The EBIT improved mainly due to volume improvement, but sales margin also improved slightly from the previous year.

Markus Kaatranen, Deputy COO of Kotipizza

 

"Growth in sales in the Kotipizza chain has continued strong during the review period. It should be noted that in addition to the rollout of the restaurant design facelift, the reform of the restaurant network has been finalized. At the beginning of the review period, the number of restaurants stood at 257 (257), after which the number has once again started to rise through the opening of new brick-and-mortar restaurants. At the end of the review period, the number of restaurants stood at 265 (254). During the review period, Kotipizza also continued to develop its online store. Orders made through the online store amounted to roughly a tenth of the net sales in brick-and-mortar restaurants during the period. Online sales were particularly significant in brick-and-mortar restaurants offering a delivery service. At the same time the number of restaurants offering delivery services has started to gradually increase and it was 68 (63) at the end of the review period. In addition, in February we acquired the Pizzataxi restaurant chain, which comprises 22 restaurants operating in the Helsinki region and Southern Finland, all of which offer delivery services."

The remaining sales increase was based on growth in chain-based net sales and, in consequence, all franchising contract-based net sales increased.

 

Kotipizza's comparable EBITDA of was 1.58 MEUR (1.48) in the first quarter of the financial year and it grew 6.9% compared to the same period in the previous year.

Anssi Koivula, CEO of Foodstock

 

"The strong sales growth in the Kotipizza chain has also been reflected in Foodstock's operations during the review period. Despite the strong growth, we have managed to ensure the reliability of our deliveries and the quality of our customer service, thanks to which our customer satisfaction has remained high. Foodstock's operations have also been affected by the Kotipizza chain's growing emphasis on sustainability and sourcing responsibly produced ingredients. The MSC ecolabel awarded to Kotipizza during the review period is a direct result of our long-standing commitment to sustainable fishing and using responsibly produced fish and seafood products."

 

February-April 2017

Comparable net sales of Foodstock for the first quarter of the financial year were 14.68 MEUR (12.11) and they grew 21.2% compared to the same period in the previous year. Reported net sales of Foodstock for the first quarter of the financial year were 14.68 MEUR (12.11) and they grew 21.2% compared to same period in the previous year. The growth in net sales was mainly due to favourable development of Kotipizza chain-based net sales, which gave a positive boost to Foodstock's delivery volumes for the chain. Positive volume effect of Foodstock's new customers gained in the previous year were also visible in the reported numbers.

 

Foodstock's comparable EBITDA improved 12,9% from the previous year and was 0.38 MEUR (0.33) in the first quarter of the financial year.

Reported EBITDA included EUR 9 thousand of items affecting comparability (calculatory, non-cash), which were related to incentive plan introduced on 6 May 2016 and other incentive plans in the group.

Iman Gharagozlu, Creative Director of Chalupa

 

"During the review period, the Chalupa chain continued to strengthen its position on a franchising basis. At the same time, the work of refining, testing and documenting the Chalupa concept continued, and the responsibility for sourcing of ingredients was transferred to Foodstock. A significant input for the concept was opening up a new restaurant in Helsinki, which will serve also as a R&D centre for the chain. At the end of the review period, Chalupa restaurants were operating in three locations in Helsinki as well as in Kauniainen, Espoo, Lahti, Tampere, and Jyväskylä, one in each. In addition, Chalupa products were available in one Kotipizza lunch restaurant."

 

February-April 2017

In the previous year only two out of five Chalupa restaurants were managed by franchisees and the remaining three were still fully consolidated to the Chalupa segment's numbers.

4. This authorization includes the right for the Board of Directors to decide on the terms and conditions of the share issues and measures related to the share issues in accordance with the Companies Act, including the right to decide whether the subscription price will be recognized in full or in part in the invested unrestricted equity reserve or as an increase to the share capital.

5. The authorization is valid until 31 July 2018.

6. The authorization will supersede the authorization to decide upon share issues given to the company's Board of Directors on 11 May 2016.

 

RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES

 

In the long term, Kotipizza Group's operative risks and uncertainties relate to a possible failure in predicting consumer preferences and in creating attractive new concepts, as well as to new business risks related to possible expansion to new cities and abroad. The competitive situation is expected to remain harsh in the fast food industry. Company's management cannot affect the general market development and consumer behaviour with its actions.

 

Restaurant openings also have a material impact on the company's franchising and rent income, income received from selling raw materials and supplies and transport and flow of goods related income and thus to the company's financial result.

 

Kotipizza Group is currently launching a new fast casual concept, which is reported under the Chalupa segment. Launching a new business concept has several risks related e.g. anticipation of consumer needs, habits, taste and behaviour. Additionally, it runs the risk of not reaching an established position at the market and not having a well-established clientele. Potential failure in launching a new concept generates costs to the company and has a significantly adverse impact on the company's brand, financial position and financial result.

 

 

EVENTS AFTER THE REPORT PERIOD

 

S-Pankki Oy announced that it had terminated the market making agreement with Kotipizza Group Oyj and will cease to deliver liquidity providing services to Kotipizza Group Oyj on 31 May 2017. The agreement between S-Pankki Oy and Kotipizza Group Oyj was signed on 3 July 2015 and came into force on 7 July 2015, which was also the first day of trading in the company's shares the main list of the Helsinki Stock Exchange. The company evaluates that the Kotipizza Group's share has sufficient liquidity without market making operations.

 

The Company received a notification pursuant to Chapter 9, Section 5 of the Securities Markets Act from Elementa Management AB on 16 May 2017, per which its holding in Kotipizza Group Oyj had gone below the threshold of (5) percent (1/20) of the share capital. Exact proportion of share capital and voting rights as of 16 May 2017: The shares managed by Elementa Management AB totaled 265.406 shares representing 4.17% of total share capital and total voting rights.


 

OUTLOOK FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR 2018

 

 

Finnish Hospitality Association MaRa forecasts that the total sales of the restaurant business in Finland will increase by 6-8 percent during the first half of 2017.

 

The total value of the Finnish restaurant market is approximately five billion euros. The most important factors influencing the development of the sector include the general economic development, consumers' disposable income, taxation and government regulation. Consumers' preferences and, increasingly, food trends influence financial development within the sector.

 

Finns are dining at restaurants more and more often, which is a key driver of growth in the business. According to the trend survey published by MaRa in December 2016, altogether 77 per cent of the respondents had dined at a restaurant during the previous two weeks. The figure was 67 per cent in 2014 and only about 40 per cent at the turn of the millennium.

 

The growth of sales in the Kotipizza chain has continuously outperformed the growth of the entire restaurant market and the fast food market. It can even be estimated that the strong growth of the Kotipizza chain has contributed to the more positive development of the fast food market compared with the rest of the restaurant market.

 

According to MaRa's estimate, the growth of sales in the restaurant sector will continue in 2017 at nearly the previous year's level, along with the growth of the Finnish national economy and the increased consumer confidence. The development will be particularly positive in the fast food sector, as fast food restaurants account for a considerable proportion of restaurant dining. In the fast food sector, the influence of taxation and government regulation on financial development is not as strong compared with the rest of the restaurant business, particularly restaurants licensed to serve alcohol.

 

Finnish consumers are still spending a considerably smaller proportion of their income on restaurant dining than consumers in most of the countries of comparison. Thus, we have reason to believe that dining at restaurants will increase in the next few years. MaRa has estimated that fast food restaurants will be well-positioned for growth, particularly with regard to staff restaurants, in which the growth of sales is forecast to slow down or even turn negative.

 

According to MaRa's restaurant industry trend survey, rising phenomena in the restaurant business include fast dining, leisure-time dining, hamburgers and pizza, as well as the increased importance of the quality of food. The survey shows that hamburgers and pizza, previously classified as 'fast food', have an increasingly important role also when it comes to dinner as well as lunch dining.

 

We believe that the financial development of the restaurant business and consumer trends support Kotipizza Group's investment in the fast casual concept, that is, restaurants that offer in a restaurant environment.

 

The Group estimates for the full financial year that the restaurant chain sales will grow by over ten (10) percent as compared to the previous financial year and that comparable EBITDA will grow as compared to the previous year.

 

ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Kotipizza Group's unaudited interim report for the three-month period ending 30 April 2017, including the audited comparison figures for the nine-month period ending 30 April 2016, have been prepared according to IAS 34 and applying the same accounting principles that were used in the previous audited full year financial statements.
