ATM S.A. increases net profit in 1H2010 by over 180%
31.08.2010

ATM S.A. published its consolidated financial statements for 1H2010. The consolidated revenues from sales in the period were PLN 169.6 million, and net profit was PLN 11.33 million. Compared to the analogous period of the previous year, the sales increased by 16%, and net profit by as much as 180%.

Telecommunications and value-added services

As regards the provision of communications services under the ATMAN brand, the ATM Group may be satisfied with the 1st half of 2010. The growth trends have been maintained in the sales, margin, and profit. The operating profit for 1H2010 increased by 15% as compared to 2H2009. The growth rate is expected to be maintained or even increased due to additional revenues from the already made investments in data centers.

The most important investment in the previous half year was the commissioning of a new server room which started to provide services under the brand of Telehouse.Poland. In 1H2010, ATMAN launched a new international line to London, and became the only Polish operator present in all three largest European interconnect nodes (AMS-IX, DE-CIX, and LINX). ATM’s resources currently include two data centers with a total area of over 5,800 m2, 8 metropolitan fiber-optic networks in the largest Polish cities, 4,500 km of long-distance lines, and 4,400 km of international lines.

“In the area of telecommunications, the first half year was successful for us. Our revenues exceeded 49.33 million, and our operating profit was PLN 6.4 million. We are glad to already see revenues from the newly deployed Telehouse.Poland colocation center, which enjoys much interest by our customers,” said Maciej Krzyżanowski, Vice-President of ATM S.A. “Later this year, we will deploy new space in our new server room, which also should have a positive impact on our revenues from telecommunications operations in the whole year”, added Krzyżanowski.

ICT system integration

In the integration service segment, the Group achieved in 2Q an unexpectedly high profit as for that part of the year. The sales were record-making both in 2Q (PLN 85 million) and in the entire 1H (PLN 129 million). Thanks to that, the operating profit in 1H exceeded PLN 6 million, which means an increase by 88% year to year.


“In the second quarter, we won a number of new contracts to be implemented in the second half of the year. We therefore expect the second half of the year to be very successful. We should have much higher revenues both from IT system integration and from the telecommunications segment”, said Roman Szwed, President of ATM S.A.

One of the most important achievements of the first six months of this year has been the implementation of the biggest contract for development and deployment of the Polish nation-wide ICT network for the purposes of the 112 emergency number. Thanks to that, as well as other smaller long-term contracts, we witnessed for the first time a desirable situation of higher predictability of revenues from integration services, with smaller seasonal fluctuations.

Mobile payments

The Group conducts its operations in this segment through mPay S.A. which popularizes the mobile payment system as a pioneer of such solutions in Poland. In the mobile payment segment, the Group reported an increase of revenues in 1H2010 by a factor of more than 4 compared to the analogous period of 2009. The generated income amounted to PLN 1.08 million, which, together with a significant reduction of fixed costs, considerably improved the financial result. The loss from operations decreased from PLN 2.3 million in 1H2009 to PLN 0.65 million in this year.
