Since the end of 2014 INVL Technology has been announcing its results as an investment entity whose purpose is to profit from an increase in the value of owned enterprises. Therefore, controlled companies are not consolidated, but valued at fair value”, – said Kazimieras Tonkūnas, Director of INVL Technology.
Value of companies, controlled by INVL Technology, at the end of 2014 was estimated by an independent evaluator – Deloitte verslo konsultacijos, UAB.
Value of Vitma, which controls 100 per cent of critical IT infrastructure company BAIP, UAB, was estimated at EUR 12.8 million, cybersecurity company NRD CS, UAB – at EUR 1 million, Norway Registers Development group – EUR 0.7 million, and software licensing company Acena, UAB – EUR 0.4 million. Equity value of INVL Technology was determined by subtracting EUR 3 million liabilities of INVL Technology.
“In 2015 we expect increase in value and capacity of controlled companies as well as regional expansion. In addition, we intend to apply for closed end investment company license, issued by the Bank of Lithuania and to place EUR 21.7 million new share issue. We are also actively looking for acquisitions”, – said K. Tonkūnas.
According to him, NASDAQ Vilnius listed INVL Technology will be acting as a private equity fund investing in IT companies which should be attractive to current and prospective shareholders.
INVL Technology managed companies in 2014 consistently improved their results. Revenues of the companies, controlled by INVL Technology, in 2014 increased by 14 per cent and reached EUR 16.7 million. Earnings before interest, tax, amortization and depreciation (EBITDA) – increased by 39 per cent to EUR 1.8 million.
„Main reason of increase in revenue and profit – expansion in Lithuanian and abroad“, – said K. Tonkūnas.
Due to revaluation of investments at fair value, net profit of INVL Technology amounted to EUR 9.3 million. It is proposed to allocate net profit to reserve for shares buy-back. This possibility would be used if INVL Technology share price on the stock exchange was significantly lower than its fair value.
