Financial guidance for 2023, updated on August 1, 2023
Revenio Group’s exchange rate-adjusted net sales growth is estimated to be between 1 - 5 percent compared to the previous year and profitability, excluding non-recurring items, is estimated to remain at a good level.

Previous financial guidance for 2023, published on February 9, 2023:
Revenio Group’s exchange rate-adjusted net sales are estimated to grow strongly from the previous year and profitability, excluding non-recurring items, is estimated to remain at a good level.

President and CEO Jouni Toijala comments on the first half year of 2023
“The first half year of 2023 was two-fold in terms of results: The year started strongly with double-digit growth, but the second quarter was exceptionally weak in terms of demand. The effects of high interest rates and inflation were visible especially in the private equity funded optometry sector. The net sales development for the second quarter was below our expectations and the decline in profitability was due to weakening of demand and one-time project costs. The cash flow from operations during the second quarter was significantly affected by the Italian subsidiary’s income tax payments, which increased from the review period and included tax payments for the year 2022. Working capital was also impacted by the higher inventory levels, which were due to long component lead times and lower-than-expected sales.

Net sales in January–June totaled EUR 45.5 (44.6) million, representing an increase of 2.0%. Operating profit was EUR 10.8 (12.7) million, or 23.8% of net sales, noting that it was burdened by non-recurring costs of approximately EUR 0.8 million associated with one-time projects. Adjusted operating profit was EUR 11.7 (12.7) million, representing 25.6% of net sales. The exchange rate-adjusted growth of net sales was 4.3%. When assessing our performance in the first half of the year, it should be noted that the figures in the comparison period were extremely strong. While the next 6 to 9 months look challenging due to the macroeconomic outlook, our long-term growth targets and prospects remain unchanged.

Our relevant global market, the market for eye diagnostic devices, has an average annual growth rate of just over 4%; the estimated annual market growth rate for intraocular pressure measurement devices is around 2–3%, just over 4% for retinal imaging devices, and around 2% for perimeters (source: Market Scope). Although we saw a slowdown in demand in our key market areas in the second quarter, we were able to grow faster than the market in the first half of the year in tonometry and fundus imaging. Sales of intraocular pressure measurement devices have returned to pre-COVID-19 levels.

Our strategy continues to provide a solid foundation for our long-term profitable growth. Our product portfolio is competitive in terms of both intraocular pressure measuring devices and retinal imaging devices. We continue to invest heavily in product development to bring new product and solutions innovations to market. Our iCare DRSplus retinal imaging device is, according to the feedback we have received, the best product on the market for taking high-quality images in a user-friendly, fully automated and fast manner. The screening solution, comprising of iCare DRSplus and iCare ILLUME, further expands our product range. The iCare ILLUME screening solution that uses AI was introduced in the spring of 2022 for the screening of diabetic retinopathy. During the review period, its features were expanded to screen for age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma. The solution helps the detection of these increasingly common eye diseases. In addition to the cooperation with the Dutch company Thirona, iCare and the French company OphtAI launched distributor cooperation during the review period. iCare will also offer OphtAI AI analysis in the EMEA area as well as in Canada for its iCare ILLUME retinal image screening solution. We have also listened carefully to the wishes of our customers; we added the Quick Measure feature to the iCare IC200 intraocular pressure measurement device. The feature enables measuring intraocular pressure with two or three individual measurements instead of the normal six measurements. Furthermore, in the US market, remote measurement with our iCare HOME2 intraocular pressure measuring device has already been approved for Medicare reimbursement. The industry expert working group we have assembled is preparing a consensus document that recommends extending the reimbursement policy to cover also the device, either in full or in part, as part of the patient’s care pathway. This would be a significant step towards increasing iCare HOME2 sales in the US.

As stated in the profit warning published on August 1, 2023, our current operating environment appears challenging. The second half of the year is still uncertain due to factors such as inflation and high-interest rates, which we expect to influence the purchasing behavior of our customers. We have seen signs of cautious investing among optometry chains. This is likely to affect the demand for our products and, consequently, our net sales in the second half of 2023. When assessing the outlook for the second half of 2023, we took into account a large non-recurring delivery of nearly EUR 5 million that was related to a multinational clinical trial and took place in the second half of the previous year. The product in question was a microperimeter already at the end of its life and is no longer included in our product portfolio. The replacing microperimeter will be launched during 2024.

We will hold a capital markets day (CMD) in November 2023, focusing on the progress of our strategy and our performance in implementing the strategy. We will release the invitation to the event separately in the early autumn.

To conclude, despite the short-term challenges caused by the macroeconomic outlook, we have an up-to-date growth strategy and a strong global team that implements it. We renewed our organisational structure as of February 1, 2023. Our business is based on sustainable and profitable growth. With the new organizational model, we will support our growth and clarify the management and transparency of our strategic priorities. I expect the full effects of the new organizational structure with its new operating model to become visible during the next year. Our product portfolio is competitive, and our iCare brand is widely esteemed among eye-care professionals. We offer our customers an extensive range of devices and software solutions that cover the essential products for the screening, monitoring and diagnostics of eye diseases. We are committed to systematically implementing our strategy focusing on profitable growth, regardless of short-term fluctuations.”

Strategy
The cornerstones of Revenio’s strategy are:

  1. Focus fully on the eye care market
  2. Improve the quality of clinical diagnostics with targeted product innovations
  3. Transform clinical care pathways with eye care focused software solutions
  4. Continue to develop stronger distribution and build on iCare brand awareness and client experience
  5. Continue strong profitable growth

Risks and uncertainty factors
Risks Revenio Group is exposed to include strategic, operational, business cycle, damage, financial, and political risks. In addition, the threat of the global impact of pandemics and the risk of cyber threats have increased.
The Group’s strategic risks include competition in all segments, threats posed by new competing products and other actions by rivals that may affect the competitive situation. There are strategic risks also related to the ability of the Group to succeed in its R&D activities and to maintain a competitive product mix. The Group develops new technologies at Icare Finland Oy, Revenio Research Oy, CenterVue SpA and iCare World Australia Pty Ltd, and any failure in the commercialization of individual development projects may result in the impairment of capitalized development expenses, with an impact on the financial result. Strategic risks also relate to the successful management and development of key human resources, and management of the subcontractor and supplier network.

Acquisitions and the purchase of health technology-related assets with growth potential are part of the Group’s strategy. The success of acquisitions by the Group may have a significant impact on Revenio Group meeting its growth and profitability targets. Acquisitions may also change the Group’s risk profile.

Strategic risks and the need for action are regularly monitored and assessed in connection with day-to-day management, monthly Group reporting, and annual strategy reviews.

Operational risks are associated with the retention and development of major customer relationships, activities amongst the distribution network, and success in expanding the customer base and markets. In the health technology sector, there are particular operational risks related to business expansion into new markets, such as countries' marketing authorizations and other national regulatory activities related to medical devices and the local health care market. Success in strategic health technology R&D projects can also be classified as an operational risk. Furthermore, global shortage of electronics components may cause operational risks.

Due to the health technology sector’s stringent quality requirements, operational risks related to the manufacture, product development, and production control of medical devices are estimated to be higher than average for industry.

Damage-related risks are covered by insurance. Property and business interruption insurance provides protection against risks in these areas. The business activities of the Group are covered by international liability insurance.

Financial risks can be further categorized into credit, interest-rate, liquidity, and foreign exchange risks. The Board assesses financial risks and other financial matters in its monthly meetings, or more frequently, as necessary. If required, the Board provides decisions and guidelines for the management of financial risks including, for example, interest-rate and currency hedging decisions. Liquidity risk can be affected by the availability of external financing, the development of the Group’s credit standing, trends in business operations, and changes in the payment behavior of customers. Cash forecasts, drawn up for periods of up to 12 months are employed to monitor liquidity risks.

The management of corporate responsibility risks is a part of the Company’s risk management process. Under this process, the risks are assessed yearly.
Revenio Group products are sold in nearly 100 countries. Uncertainty over trade policy or unstable political situations may affect demand for our products. Revenio actively monitors political developments in various market areas from a risk management perspective. Developments in national government policies or changes to relevant legislation may have an impact on the Group’s business. The security situation in Europe has changed drastically since Russia invasion of Ukraine. Revenio stopped all its business in Russia and Belarus in the first quarter of the year 2022. Revenio’s sales in Russia have been limited prior to the war, accounting for less than two per cent of net sales.

Moreover, global pandemics such as Covid-19 may have direct and indirect effects on Revenio Group's business, including an increased risk of personnel being incapacitated. Government-mandated closures of factories or borders may weaken Revenio Group's operating environment and restrictions on the movement of people could hamper the sales and delivery of our products.

Alternative growth indicators used in financial reporting
Revenio has adopted the guidelines of the European Securities and Market Authority (ESMA) on Alternative Performance Measures. In addition to the IFRS-based key figures, the company will publish certain other generally used key figures that may, as a rule, be derived from the income statement and balance sheet. The calculation of these figures is presented below. According to the company’s view, these key figures supplement the income statement and balance sheet, providing a better picture of the company’s financial performance and position.

Revenio Group’s net sales are strongly affected by fluctuations in the exchange rate between the euro and the US dollar. As an alternative growth indicator, the company also presents net sales with the exchange rate effect eliminated.
