 Q1 2024 IFRS financial results

Revenue in Q1 2024 was down 7.5% to EUR 109.6 million from EUR 118.5 million in Q4 2023 and was also down 38.9% compared to EUR 179.4 million in Q1 2023. The uncertain macroeconomic environment, with higher interest rates and elevated customer inventory levels impacted customer spending behavior. 

Pro forma gross profit in Q1 2024 was down 16.3% to EUR 39.7 million (36.3% of revenues) from EUR 47.5 million (40.1% of revenues) in Q4 2023 and decreased by 31.9% from EUR 58.4 million (32.5% of revenues) in Q1 2023. The year-over-year margin increase was due to lower material costs, and a more favorable customer and product mix. The sequential margin decline was driven by the customer and product mix in Q1 2024.

Pro forma EBIT in Q1 2024 was negative EUR 3.7 million (-3.1% of revenues) compared to EUR 9.3 million (7.8% of revenues) in Q4 2023 and EUR 9.7 million (5.4% of revenues) in Q1 2023 respectively.

Operating loss increased from EUR 1.1 million in Q4 2023 to EUR 8.8 million in Q1 2024 and from an operating income of EUR 6.2 million in Q1 2023. The operating loss was in particular due to the lower level of revenues and extraordinary expenses related to the cost efficiency measures.

Net loss was EUR 1.2 million in Q1 2024, compared to a net loss of EUR 22.7 million in Q4 2023 and to a net income of EUR 3.6 million in Q1 2023. The substantially lower net loss compared to the operating loss is in particular due to tax effects from the increased usability of loss carryforwards in future periods.

The company’s cash and cash equivalents increased by EUR 2.3 million to EUR 32.9 million compared to EUR 30.6 million at the end of Q4 2023 and decreased by EUR 24.3 million compared to EUR 67.2 million in Q1 2023.

The company’s net debt decreased by EUR 6.4 million from EUR 42.4 million in Q4 2023 to EUR 36.0 million in Q1 2024 and increased by EUR 11.7 million from a net debt position of EUR 24.3 million in Q1 2023.

 Management commentary

“The significant slowdown in our customers' investment behavior, which was influenced by the macroeconomic environment and higher interest rates, combined with the reduction of inventories, continues to present us with challenges explained Tom Stanton, CEO Adtran Networks SE. “We remain focused on executing our business efficiency program, and believe that as markets return to normal, we will be a major beneficiary from the global expansion of optical networks.”

The company will publish its financial results for Q2 2024 on August 6, 2024.

The company is no longer required to and will not publish a three-month 2024 report.
