BUSINESS OUTLOOK

Verkkokauppa.com Oyj's business operations are estimated to develop positively within a medium-term time frame. The management believes that the company will succeed in further growing its market share in chosen segments. The strong balance sheet enables the company to continue expanding its operations in accordance with its strategy. The Finnish Ministry of Finance estimated on 19 December 2017 that the Finnish GDP will grow by 3.1% during 2017 and 2.4% during 2018.


FINANCIAL GUIDANCE

Strong GDP growth in Finland and opening of the new Raisio megastore are likely to contribute positively to Verkkokauppa.com's revenue. On the other hand, the company had unusually high wholesale volumes in H1/2017. The wholesale volumes in H1/2018 are expected to decrease significantly compared to H1/2017. The Raisio store opening costs will mainly accrue in H1/2018. Thus, both sales growth and profitability will be clearly higher in the latter half of year 2018.

In 2018, the company's revenue is expected to be between 460-500 million euros (2017: 432 million euros) and comparable EBITDA to be between 11-14 million euros (13 million euros).


CEO SAMULI SEPPÄLÄ'S REVIEW

Verkkokauppa.com's revenue grew by 10% in Q4, and growth in the fiscal year 2017 was 16%, amounting to 432 million euros. Comparable quarterly revenue increased year on year in every quarter in 2017. EBITDA margin was 4.7% in Q4 and 3.0% for the whole year 2017. Verkkokauppa.com's market share grew in almost all categories both in Q4, up to three percentage points in certain categories and in 2017 as a whole, according to GfK. This development is well aligned with recently updated medium-term targets of net sales growth of 10-20%, and an EBITDA margin of 3-5%.

The year 2018 is expected to bring further growth, boosted by the opening of a new megastore and anticipated GDP growth. However, the competitive situation and development of export sales may bring some uncertainty. For 2018, revenue is expected to develop between 460-500 million euros (2017: 432 million euros) and comparable EBITDA between 11-14 million euros (2017: 12.9 million euros). The Board proposes increasing the dividend for 2018 and has updated the wording of the dividend policy to paying out a quarterly, growing dividend.

Preparations for launching a new megastore in the greater Turku region are well on schedule. The store will be located in Raisio's Mylly shopping mall area serving the region of Turku. The grand opening is planned for March 2018 with a theme of "100 Days of Mega Opening". While the new store is expected to provide additional revenue for 2018, it will carry significant one-time opening and launching costs, mainly in Q1 and Q2.

Verkkokauppa.com terminated its cooperation with the PINS bonus program in January of 2018. More focus will be put on the company's own customer profiling, benefits, and the Apuraha consumer financing solution.

Investment in new categories suited for online sales and in cost-saving technologies and projects will continue, now under the new CEO Panu Porkka, who will start on 22 March 2018. I will remain as a Board member and will participate in different committees. I am personally very pleased that we will have Panu Porkka as the new CEO of Verkkokauppa.com. I also want to thank our customers, personnel and shareholders for the past 25 years.

An estimated one per cent, or 400 million euros, of brick-and-mortar retail sales goes online every year in Finland, with the current share of online sales being approximately 10%. The company expects to continue its revenue growth in the medium-term, supported by positive retail market, GDP growth in Finland, and a strategy focusing on growth.

Personnel costs increased in October-December by 18.9% to 7.3 million euros (6.1). The increase resulted mainly from the growing number of personnel in stores and in support functions (customer service and administration). During the fourth quarter, other expenses increased by 1.5 million euros to 7.2 million euros (5.7). The increase resulted mainly from the utilization of outsourced warehouse services.

2) Fixed costs, % = (Personnel expenses
+ other operating expenses) / Revenue x 100
3) Gross profit =
Revenue - Cost of goods and services
4) Gross margin, % = (
Revenue - Cost of goods and services) / Revenue x 100
5) EBITDA = Operating profit before depreciation
6) EBITDA, % = Operating profit before depreciation /
Revenue x 100
7) Operating margin, % = Operating result /
Revenue x 100
8) Comparable operating margin, % = Comparable operating result /
Revenue x 100
9) Equity ratio = (Equity + depreciation difference x (1 - tax rate)) / (Total sum of the balance sheet - advances received) x 100
10)
Return on capital employed (ROCE), rolling 12 months, % = (Net profit + financial expenses + taxes) / (Average equity + interest-bearing debt) x 100
11)
Net gearing, % = (Interest-bearing debt - cash and cash equivalents - interest-bearing receivables) / Equity x 100
12) Earnings per share = Profit for the financial period / Monthly average number of shares adjusted by share issues
13) Comparable earnings per share = Comparable profit for the financial period / Monthly average number of shares adjusted by share issues
14) Earnings per share (diluted) = Profit for the financial period / Monthly average number of shares adjusted by share issues + number of shares according to subscription rights
15) Comparable earnings per share (diluted) = Comparable profit for the financial period / Monthly average number of shares adjusted by share issues + number of shares according to subscription rights
16) A
verage number of shares at end of the period revised by share split = Monthly average number of shares at the end of the period revised by share split
17)
