Global Graphics Software joins OPC Foundation

Connecting print to smart factories requires you to talk their language

Global Graphics Software has joined the OPC Foundation, the organization responsible for the development and maintenance of the OPC (Open Platform Communications) Industrial Interoperability Standard. Global Graphics Software is the developer of award-winning components used in digital printing systems which are increasingly part of connected processes in smart factories where printing is part of the manufacturing process.

OPC UA is the interoperability standard for the secure and reliable exchange of data in the industrial automation space and in other industries. It is platform independent and ensures the seamless flow of information among devices from multiple vendors.

Eric Worrall, VP of products and customer success at Global Graphics Software comments, “OPC UA will allow us a standard way to communicate with devices within the production line such as PLCs. It will also allow us to communicate up to SCADA and HMIs controlling full production process, not just the printing subsystem. Collecting the data and providing historical analysis will enable innovations like predictive maintenance. We will work with component suppliers to add OPC UA interfaces to electronic components in the print system to allow plug and play integration. We also have versions of our RIP technologies that can be run on Arm platforms and aimed at the Internet of Things. Adding OPC UA connectivity to these IoT solutions will allow standard connectivity and the strong security required for IoT.

Justin Bailey, Global Graphics Software’s managing director adds, “The OPC Foundation is an 800+ strong international community, and we look forward to becoming an active member. The function of print is changing and the OPC UA standard is already in use in industrial environments that want to add print into their processes. Our OEM customers targeting their solutions at the industrial sector will welcome the connectivity potential that our solutions will provide.”

Stefan Hoppe, president and executive director of the OPC Foundation, comments: “The OPC Foundation warmly welcomes Global Graphics Software as a new member of the largest ecosystem for secured industrial interoperability. OPC UA not only enables seamless secure data transport from the field to the cloud (and back) – an essential aspect is the standardization of the information to be transported e.g. also for the printing industry – we are therefore looking forward to the cooperation of the experts from Global Graphics Software.”

Global Graphics presents at VFB Expert Tips day

Cambridge (UK), 7 April, 2021: Global Graphics PLC (Euronext: GLOG) is taking part in VFB’s virtual Expert Tips day on 24 April, 2021.

 

Chairman Guido Van der Schueren and CEO Mike Rottenborn are taking the opportunity to present the “new” company to investors following the recent acquisition of HYBRID Software in January 2021, which has nearly doubled the headcount and revenues of the group.

 

Global Graphics develops enterprise software for industrial inkjet printing.  A growing part of the manufacturing sector, industrial inkjet is when printing technology is used in broader manufacturing processes such as ceramic tile production, textiles and wall coverings, 3D printing and packaging.

 

Guido Van der Schueren comments, “We are looking forward to getting out and about to meet shareholders and prospective investors, even if, initially, this is in a virtual setting.  We are planning a more active programme of activities this year in response to our shareholders’ requests to get to know the company better.”

 

Mike Rottenborn adds, “The four operating companies in the group – Global Graphics Software, HYBRID Software, Meteor Inkjet and Xitron – all develop innovative solutions, many of which are award winning.   Despite the pandemic we put in a solid performance in 2020 and are on a strong footing for the year ahead.  We want to present an up-to-date picture of the company for potential investors and see the VFB Expert Tips day as the ideal platform to do so.”

 

The presentation and Q&A session will be given in a mixture of English and Dutch.

Global Graphics publishes 2020 annual report and financial statements

Cambridge (UK), 18 March 2021 (08.00 CET): Global Graphics PLC (Euronext: GLOG) announces that it has published its annual report and financial statements for the financial year ended 31 December 2020.

The full document is available to download from the investors section of the Company’s web site at:  https://investor.globalgraphics.com/investors/financial-reports.

Should you wish to receive printed copies please send an e-mail to investor-relations@globalgraphics.com or make your request in writing, for the attention of the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, to 2030 Cambourne Business Park, Cambourne, Cambridge, CB23 6DW, UK.

Mike Rottenborn, Global Graphics CEO comments, “On behalf of the Board of Directors and the management team, I’m pleased to publicly announce our 2020 results.  I began the year as the new CEO shortly before the world was engulfed in the global pandemic and this presented significant challenges, but every Global Graphics employee pulled together to deliver uninterrupted innovation on behalf of our customers and very strong results for our shareholders.

“Four events deserve special mention.  First, the revenue in our Printhead Solutions segment increased by 43% over the same period in 2019 as Meteor’s industrial inkjet customers continued building ever-larger printers.  Second, we were able to conclude the sale of our URW Type Foundry business to Monotype in May, a good outcome for all parties.  Third, Global Graphics Software received a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise for our innovative products in inkjet screening and quality.  And finally, we concluded the year by announcing the purchase of HYBRID Software, which will open up many new opportunities for Global Graphics in the fast-growing labels and packaging segments.

“Although the pandemic is far from over, we see the recovery beginning for many of our OEM customers, and Global Graphics is on a very strong footing to support them throughout 2021 and beyond.”

Global Graphics Chairman Guido Van der Schueren adds, “The pandemic changed many things, but it did not slow the pace of innovation by either Global Graphics or HYBRID Software, and it’s exciting to see the integration taking place following the acquisition of HYBRID Software.  This is transformative for Global Graphics, nearly doubling the headcount and revenue of the group and putting it in a much stronger position to lead the digital transformation in labels and packaging as well as other industrial inkjet segments.  This is a new and improved Global Graphics now, and I and the rest of the Board are committed to sharing this vision over the coming months with the investor community for the benefit of all shareholders.”

Financial highlights

In May 2020, the Group sold its entire Fonts segment following a strategic decision to focus on the industrial printing market and focus on the Group’s core competencies of printing software and device electronics.  As a result, 2019 comparatives have been re-presented to differentiate financial results between continuing and discontinued operations.

For the year ended 31 December
In thousands of euros 2020 2019
Continuing operations    
Revenue 22,494 18,478
Operating profit/(loss) 1,387 (131)
Profit/(loss) before tax 1,693 (515)
Tax 58 144
Profit/(loss) from continuing operations 1,751 (371)
Discontinued operation
Profit from discontinued operation, net of tax 4,167 823
Profit for the year attributable to equity holders 5,918 452
EBITDA – continuing operations 4,711 2,592
Adjusted operating profit – continuing operations 2,355 1,090
Adjusted net profit – continuing operations 2,522 671
Basic earnings/(loss) per share (euro) – continuing operations 0.15 (0.03)
Adjusted earnings per share (euro) – continuing operations 0.22 0.06
Available cash 6,855 4,995

The consolidated pre-tax result for continuing operations was a profit of €1.69 million compared with a loss of €0.52 million in 2019.  The increase in profitability of €2.21 million is due to:

  • an increase in revenue of €4.02 million;
  • an increase in cost of sales of €1.80 million;
  • an increase in selling, general and administrative expenses of €0.88 million;
  • a decrease in research and development expenses of €0.22 million;
  • an increase in other operating expenses of €0.04 million;
  • an increase in net finance expenses of €0.02 million; and
  • an increase in foreign exchange gains of €0.71 million.

Revenue for the Software segment included a full year of sales by Xitron and totalled €12.67 million for the year (2019: €11.61 million).  The segment benefited from a contract amendment with an existing customer that resulted in €2.30 million of revenue being recognised, which is not expected to be recurring.  In 2019 a different customer exercised an option in their contract which resulted in €2.0 million of revenue being recognised in that year.

Revenue for the Printhead Solutions segment was €9.82 million for the year (2019: €6.87 million).  The top three customers that declined significantly in 2019 recovered during the year and accounted for €2.75 million of the €2.95 million increase in revenue, with the largest customer accounting for €2.33 million of the increase.

Gross profit for the period declined to 76.7% of revenue (2019: 81.3%), primarily due to the higher proportion of driver electronics revenue which generates a lower profit margin than software sales.

Included in selling, general and administrative expenses is amortisation of €1.48 million (2019: €0.77 million) related to intangible assets recognised as a result of acquisitions for continuing operations.  The increase in the year is due to a full year of amortisation of the intangible assets acquired with the Xitron acquisition.  Due to the reduction in share-based awards over the previous years, the share-based payment expense reduced significantly from €152,262 in 2019 to €2,595 in 2020.

Included in research and development expenses (“R&D”) is the capitalisation and amortisation of internally generated intangible assets.  During the period there was a net capitalisation of €0.72 million (2019: €0.13 million net amortisation expense) related to these assets helping to reduce the R&D expense for the year.  The net capitalisation (2019: expense) was comprised of €0.65 million (2019: €1.44 million) in amortisation charge offset by €1.37 million (2019: €1.31 million) in capitalisation of development expenses.

The exchange rate losses are primarily due to the revaluation of currency balances held at the balance sheet date and the change in exchange rates during the year.

The Group presents EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation) and adjusted profit when reporting its financial results to provide investors with an additional tool to evaluate the Group’s results in a manner that focuses on what the Group believes to be its underlying business operations.  The Group’s management believes that the inclusion of adjusted financial results provides consistency and comparability with past reports.

Additional commentary and analysis of the Group’s consolidated results for the year ending 31 December 2020 can be found in the annual report and financial statements.

Annual General Meeting

The Company expects to hold its annual general meeting on Thursday 6 May 2021.  The official notice of the meeting will be issued in accordance with applicable legal and regulatory requirements closer to the time.
