Consolidated income statement (1 January – 31 December)
|Current operating income||33.7||38.1|
|Current operating margin||13.6%||15.9%|
|Net profit (Group share)||18.4||21.8|
Operating margins hold up well
Tessi's 2014 turnover amounted to €247.2 million, up €7.9 million from €239.3 million in 2013. Like-for-like turnover was down slightly, by 1.5%, primarily due to a decrease in CPoR Devises' business in 2014.
2014 current operating income amounted to €33.7 million. Current operating margin was 13.6%.
The contributions from the Group's divisions to 2014 current operating income were as follows:
- CPoR Devises posted €44.7 million turnover, down 13.5%, and current operating income of €12.8 million, down from €17.8 million in 2013. CPoR Devises' profit margin amounted to 28.5% of turnover.
- Tessi documents services posted 11.0% growth in turnover amounting to €178.4 million. 2014 current operating income amounted to €22.8 million, up 19.2% from €19.1 million in 2013 and resulting in a 12.8% margin on turnover. Graddo posted turnover of €11.4 million and current operating income of €1.3 million.
- Tessi marketing services registered turnover of €24.1 million, down from €26.9 million in 2013, while reporting a €1.9 million current operating loss compared to a €1.2 million profit in 2013.
This year's operating profit of €30.6 million was once again hit by non-recurring expenses, which amounted to €3.1 million in 2014 compared to €2.2 million the previous year. These were mainly related to CPoR Devises' Belgian subsidiary being closed and the restructuring of the Tessi Documents Services business.
After financial costs of €0.6 million and corporate income tax of €10.1 million, consolidated net profit amounted to €19.8 million, down from €24.2 million in 2013.
At €18.4 million, net profit (Group share) was down €3.4 million compared to 2013. The Group net profit margin remained high at 7.5% of turnover.
Continued financial strength
|Net cash excluding net cash dedicated to CPoR Devises||21.3||47.2|
|Equity capital (Group share)||154.1||143.6|
The reduction in net cash primarily arose from the acquisitions of Spanish firm Graddo in May and Gdoc in December 2014.
A dividend payment of €2 per share for the 2014 financial year, giving rise to an aggregate pay out of €5.6 million, will be submitted for approval to the AGM scheduled for 25 June 2015.

In 2015, Tessi is committed to pursuing its growth strategy and maintaining its profit margins.
