Financial Statement Release

January 29, 2015 at 08:00 (CET +1)

 

This is a summary of the Nokia Corporation report for Q4 2014 and full year 2014 published today. The complete fourth quarter and full year 2014 report with tables is available at http://company.nokia.com/en/financials. Investors should not rely on summaries of our interim reports only, but should review the complete reports with tables.

 

FINANCIAL AND OPERATING HIGHLIGHTS

 

Fourth quarter 2014 highlights:

 

·                  Non-IFRS diluted EPS in Q4 2014 of EUR 0.09 (EUR 0.08 in Q4 2013); reported diluted EPS of EUR 0.08 (EUR 0.05 in Q4 2013)

·                  Net sales in Q4 2014 of EUR 3.8 billion (EUR 3.5 billion in Q4 2013)

 

Nokia Networks

 

·                  Nokia Networks achieved 8% year-on-year growth in net sales, from EUR 3.1 billion in Q4 2013 to EUR 3.4 billion in Q4 2014, primarily due to strong performance in North America.

·                  Nokia Networks achieved strong underlying operating profitability with non-IFRS operating profit of EUR 470 million, or 14.0% of net sales, compared to EUR 349 million, or 11.2% of net sales, in Q4 2013.

·                  Mobile Broadband achieved 13% year-on-year increase in net sales, driven by strong growth in overall core networking technologies and modest growth in overall radio technologies. Within radio technologies, strong year-on-year growth in LTE was partially offset by a decline in mature radio technologies.

·                  Global Services returned to year-on-year growth for the first time since Q4 2012, with net sales up by 3% and particularly strong growth in the strategically important systems integration business line.

 

HERE

 

·                  HERE achieved 15% year-on-year growth in net sales, from EUR 255 million in Q4 2013 to EUR 292 million in Q4 2014, primarily due to HERE’s leading market position and positive trends in the automotive market.

·                  In Q4 2014, HERE sold map data licenses for the embedded navigation systems of 3.9 million new vehicles, compared to 3.2 million vehicles in Q4 2013.

 

Nokia Technologies

 

·                  Nokia Technologies achieved 23% year-on-year growth in net sales, from EUR 121 million in Q4 2013 to EUR 149 million in Q4 2014, primarily due to Microsoft becoming a more significant intellectual property licensee in conjunction with the sale of substantially all of Nokia’s Devices & Services business to Microsoft, as well as higher intellectual property licensing income from certain other licensees.

·                  In Q4 2014, Nokia Technologies non-IFRS operating expenses increased both year-on-year and sequentially primarily due to investments in business activities, which target new and significant long-term

growth opportunities, as well as increased activities related to anticipated and ongoing patent licensing cases.

 

Full year 2014 highlights:

 

·                  Nokia’s full year 2014 non-IFRS diluted EPS grew by 40% to EUR 0.28 (EUR 0.20 in 2013); reported diluted EPS of EUR 0.30 (EUR 0.05 in 2013)

·                  Nokia’s full year 2014 net sales of EUR 12.7 billion (EUR 12.7 billion in 2013)

·                  Nokia Board of Directors will propose a dividend of EUR 0.14 per share for 2014 (EUR 0.11 per share for 2013, in addition to which a special dividend of EUR 0.26 per share was paid in 2014)

 

Commenting on the fourth quarter and full year results, Rajeev Suri, Nokia President and CEO, said:

 

2014 was a time of significant change for Nokia and we ended the year in a renewed position of strength. I want to extend my thanks to our customers who have shown such strong support during our transformation and our employees who have worked so hard to make it happen.

 

The power of the new Nokia could be seen in our fourth quarter results. All of our businesses delivered strong year-on-year net sales growth. Profitability was excellent in Nokia Networks, and we were particularly pleased with our net sales growth in North America and core networks. HERE continued its momentum in the automotive segment, and the early reception to the Nokia N1 tablet has been remarkably favorable, showing the ongoing power of the Nokia brand and the long-term potential of our brand licensing business.

 

Looking ahead, while 2014 was a year of reinvention, we see 2015 as a year of execution. We are already moving fast, with HERE sharpening its strategic focus, Nokia Technologies accelerating its licensing and innovation activities, and Nokia Networks increasing its momentum in growth areas including virtualization and telco cloud.

 

As we pursue these opportunities, we will not shy away from investing where we need to invest. But, we plan to always combine that with disciplined cost control and a focus on delivering ongoing productivity and quality improvements across the company.

 

Overall, while we must remain focused on our execution, I believe that Nokia is well positioned to meet its goals for the year.

Note 1 relating to results information and non-IFRS (also referred to as “underlying”) results: The results information in this report is unaudited. Percentages and figures presented herein may include rounding differences and therefore may not add up precisely to the totals presented and may vary from previously published financial information. In addition to information on our reported IFRS results, we provide certain information on a non-IFRS, or underlying business performance, basis. Non-IFRS results exclude all material special items for all periods. In addition, non-IFRS results exclude intangible asset amortization and other purchase price accounting related items arising from business acquisitions. We believe that our non-IFRS results provide meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors regarding Nokia’s underlying business performance by excluding the above-described items that may not be indicative of Nokia’s business operating results. These non-IFRS financial measures should not be viewed in isolation or as substitutes to the equivalent IFRS measure(s), but should be used in conjunction with the most directly comparable IFRS measure(s) in the reported results. More information, including a reconciliation of our Q4 2014 and Q4 2013 non-IFRS results to our reported results, can be found in our complete Q4 2014 and full year 2014 report in tables 14-18. A reconciliation of our Q3 2014 non-IFRS results to our reported results can be found in our complete Q3 2014 interim report with tables on pages 22-27 published on October 23, 2014.

 

NOKIA’S OUTLOOK

 

·                  Nokia continues to expect Nokia Networks’ net sales to grow on a year-on-year basis for the full year 2015.

·                  Nokia continues to expect Nokia Networks’ non-IFRS operating margin for the full year 2015 to be in-line with Nokia Networks’ long-term non-IFRS operating margin range of 8% to 11%.

·                  Nokia’s outlook for Nokia Networks net sales and non-IFRS operating margin is based on expectations regarding a number of factors, including:

 

·                  competitive industry dynamics;

·                  product and regional mix;

·                  the timing of major network deployments; and

·                  expected continued operational improvement.

 

·                  Nokia expects Nokia Networks’ net sales and non-IFRS operating margin in the first quarter 2015 to decline seasonally compared to the fourth quarter 2014. Note that Nokia Networks non-IFRS operating margin benefited from a relatively high proportion of software sales in the first quarter 2014.

·                  Nokia continues to expect HERE’s net sales to grow on a year-on-year basis for the full year 2015.

·                  Nokia now expects HERE’s non-IFRS operating margin for the full year 2015 to be between 7% and 12%, based on HERE’s leading market position, positive industry trends and improved focus on cost efficiency. This compares to Nokia’s previous outlook for HERE’s non-IFRS operating margin for the full year 2015 to be between 5% and 10%.

·                  Nokia continues to expect Nokia Technologies’ net sales to grow on a year-on-year basis for the full year 2015, excluding potential amounts related to the expected resolution of our ongoing arbitration with Samsung, which is expected to be concluded during 2015.

·                  Nokia continues to expect Nokia Technologies’ non-IFRS operating expenses to increase meaningfully on a year-on-year basis for the full year 2015. More specifically, Nokia expects Nokia Technologies’ quarterly non-IFRS operating expenses in 2015 to be approximately in-line with the fourth quarter 2014 level. This is related to higher investments in licensing activities, licensable technologies, and business enablers including go-to-market capabilities, which target new and significant long-term growth opportunities.

 

4



 

·                  Nokia continues to expect Nokia Group capital expenditures to be approximately EUR 200 million in 2015, primarily attributable to capital expenditures by Nokia Networks.

·                  Nokia continues to expect Nokia Group financial income and expenses, including net interest expenses and the impact from changes in foreign exchange rates on certain balance sheet items, to amount to an expense of approximately EUR 160 million in 2015, subject to changes in foreign exchange rates and the level of interest-bearing liabilities.

·                  Nokia continues to expect Group Common Functions non-IFRS operating expenses to be approximately EUR 120 million in 2015.

·                  Nokia continues to target to record tax expenses in Nokia Group’s Consolidated Income Statements at a long-term effective tax rate of approximately 25%. However, Nokia targets Nokia Group’s cash tax obligations to continue at approximately EUR 250 million annually until Nokia Group’s deferred tax assets have been fully utilized. The cash tax amount may vary depending on profit levels in different jurisdictions and the amount of license income potentially subject to withholding tax.

Note 1 relating to results information and non-IFRS (also referred to as “underlying”) results: The results information in this report is unaudited. Percentages and figures presented herein may include rounding differences and therefore may not add up precisely to the totals presented and may vary from previously published financial information. In addition to information on our reported IFRS results, we provide certain information on a non-IFRS, or underlying business performance, basis. Non-IFRS results exclude all material special items for all periods. In addition, non-IFRS results exclude intangible asset amortization and other purchase price accounting related items arising from business acquisitions. We believe that our non-IFRS results provide meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors regarding Nokia’s underlying business performance by excluding the above-described items that may not be indicative of Nokia’s business operating results. These non-IFRS financial measures should not be viewed in isolation or as substitutes to the equivalent IFRS measure(s), but should be used in conjunction with the most directly comparable IFRS measure(s) in the reported results. See note 2 below for information about the exclusions from our non-IFRS results. More information, including a reconciliation of our Q4 2014 and Q4 2013 non-IFRS results to our reported results, can be found in Tables 14-18. A reconciliation of our Q3 2014 non-IFRS results to our reported results can be found in our complete Q3 2014 interim report with tables on pages 22-27 published on October 23, 2014.

Note 3 relating to operational and reporting structure: We have three businesses: Nokia Networks, HERE, and Nokia Technologies, and four operating and reportable segments for financial reporting purposes: Mobile Broadband and Global Services within Nokia Networks, HERE, and Nokia Technologies. We also present certain segment data for discontinued operations. Below is a description of our four reportable segments. Mobile Broadband provides mobile operators with radio and core network software together with the hardware needed to deliver mobile voice and data services. Global Services provides mobile operators with a broad range of services, including network implementation, care, managed services, network planning and optimization as well as systems integration. HERE focuses on the development of location intelligence, location-based services and local commerce. Nokia Technologies is built on Nokia’s intellectual property rights (IPR) and brand and related licensing. Nokia Networks also contains Nokia Networks Other, which includes net sales and related cost of sales and operating expenses of non-core businesses, IPR net sales and related costs, as well as Nokia Networks’ Optical business until May 6, 2013, when its divestment was completed. It also includes restructuring and associated charges for Nokia Networks business. Additionally, as a result of the transaction announced on September 3, 2013 where Nokia sold substantially all of Nokia’s Devices & Services business to Microsoft on April 25, 2014 (“Sale of the D&S Business”), we report certain separate information for discontinued operations. As the Sale of the D&S Business closed on April 25, 2014, i.e. shortly after the end of the first quarter 2014, the financial results of the discontinued operations after the transaction are not comparable to the financial results of the discontinued operations in previous periods. On August 7, 2013 Nokia completed the acquisition of Siemens’ stake in Nokia Siemens Networks, which was a joint venture between Nokia and Siemens and renamed the company Nokia Solutions and Networks, also referred to as NSN. NSN was consolidated by Nokia prior to this transaction. After the closing of the Sale of the D&S Business, NSN was renamed Nokia Networks. Beginning in the third quarter 2013, Nokia has reported financial information for the two operating and reportable segments within Nokia Networks; Mobile Broadband and Global Services. Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2013, the Devices & Services business has been reported as discontinued operations. To reflect these changes, historical results information for past periods has been regrouped for historical comparative purposes. As is customary, certain judgments have been made when regrouping historical results information and allocating items in the regrouped results. When presenting financial information and comparative information for previous periods, we generally refer to the names of the businesses and reportable segments as they are named currently.

 

Note 4 relating to net cash from operating activities: No comparative data available for quarterly information in 2013.

Note 5 relating to Nokia net cash and other liquid assets: Calculated as total cash and other liquid assets less interest-bearing liabilities. For selected information on Nokia Group interest-bearing liabilities, please see the table 27.

 

NOKIA’S OUTLOOK

 

·                  Nokia continues to expect Nokia Networks’ net sales to grow on a year-on-year basis for the full year 2015.

·                  Nokia continues to expect Nokia Networks’ non-IFRS operating margin for the full year 2015 to be in-line with Nokia Networks’ long-term non-IFRS operating margin range of 8% to 11%.

·                  Nokia’s outlook for Nokia Networks net sales and non-IFRS operating margin is based on expectations regarding a number of factors, including:

 

·                  competitive industry dynamics;

·                  product and regional mix;

·                  the timing of major network deployments; and

·                  expected continued operational improvement.

 

·                  Nokia expects Nokia Networks’ net sales and non-IFRS operating margin in the first quarter 2015 to decline seasonally compared to the fourth quarter 2014. Note that Nokia Networks non-IFRS operating margin benefited from a relatively high proportion of software sales in the first quarter 2014.

·                  Nokia continues to expect HERE’s net sales to grow on a year-on-year basis for the full year 2015.

·                  Nokia now expects HERE’s non-IFRS operating margin for the full year 2015 to be between 7% and 12%, based on HERE’s leading market position, positive industry trends and improved focus on cost efficiency. This compares to Nokia’s previous outlook for HERE’s non-IFRS operating margin for the full year 2015 to be between 5% and 10%.

·                  Nokia continues to expect Nokia Technologies’ net sales to grow on a year-on-year basis for the full year 2015, excluding potential amounts related to the expected resolution of our ongoing arbitration with Samsung, which is expected to be concluded during 2015.

·                  Nokia continues to expect Nokia Technologies’ non-IFRS operating expenses to increase meaningfully on a year-on-year basis for the full year 2015. More specifically, Nokia expects Nokia Technologies’ quarterly non-IFRS operating expenses in 2015 to be approximately in-line with the fourth quarter 2014 level. This is related to higher investments in licensing activities, licensable technologies, and business enablers including go-to-market capabilities, which target new and significant long-term growth opportunities.

·                  Nokia continues to expect Nokia Group capital expenditures to be approximately EUR 200 million in 2015, primarily attributable to capital expenditures by Nokia Networks.

·                  Nokia continues to expect Nokia Group financial income and expenses, including net interest expenses and the impact from changes in foreign exchange rates on certain balance sheet items, to amount to an expense of approximately EUR 160 million in 2015, subject to changes in foreign exchange rates and the level of interest-bearing liabilities.

·                 Nokia continues to expect Group Common Functions non-IFRS operating expenses to be approximately EUR 120 million in 2015.

·                  Nokia continues to target to record tax expenses in Nokia Group’s Consolidated Income Statements at a long-term effective tax rate of approximately 25%. However, Nokia targets Nokia Group’s cash tax obligations to continue at approximately EUR 250 million annually until Nokia Group’s deferred tax assets have been fully utilized. The cash tax amount may vary depending on profit levels in different jurisdictions and the amount of license income potentially subject to withholding tax.

Note 1: Change in net sales at constant currency excludes the impact of changes in exchange rates in comparison to the Euro, our reporting currency.

 

Nokia’s continuing operations net sales increased 9% year-on-year and 14% sequentially. At constant currency, Nokia’s continuing operations net sales would have increased 9% year-on-year and 11% sequentially.

 

The year-on-year increase in Nokia’s continuing operations net sales in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to higher net sales in Nokia Networks and, to a lesser extent, higher net sales in HERE and Nokia Technologies. The year-on-year increase in Nokia Networks’ net sales in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to an increase in net sales in Mobile Broadband and to a lesser extent in Global Services and non-recurring intellectual property rights (IPR) income. The year-on-year increase in HERE net sales was primarily due to higher sales to vehicle customers, as well as Microsoft becoming a more significant licensee of HERE’s services. The year-on-year increase in Nokia Technologies net sales in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to Microsoft becoming a more significant intellectual property licensee in conjunction with the sale of substantially all of Nokia’s Devices & Services business to Microsoft, as well as higher intellectual property licensing income from certain licensees. These increases were partially offset by declines in licensing income from certain other licensees that experienced lower levels of business activity.

 

The sequential increase in Nokia’s continuing operations net sales in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to higher net sales in Nokia Networks and, to a lesser extent, in HERE. The sequential increase in net sales for Nokia Networks in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to an increase in net sales in Global Services and to a lesser extent in Mobile Broadband and non-recurring IPR income. The sequential increase in net sales for HERE was primarily due to higher sales to vehicle customers and, to a lesser extent, higher seasonal sales to personal navigation device (PND) and enterprise customers, partially offset by lower recognition of revenue related to smartphone sales by our former Devices & Services business.

 

Non-IFRS Gross margin

 

Nokia’s continuing operations non-IFRS gross margin in the fourth quarter 2014 increased from 42.5% to 43.5% on a year-on-year basis, primarily driven by the increase in non-IFRS gross margin in Nokia Networks and, to a lesser extent, an increase in non-IFRS gross margin in HERE and Nokia Technologies.

 

The year-on-year increase in Nokia Networks’ non-IFRS gross margin in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to an increase in non-IFRS gross margin for Mobile Broadband, as well as a higher proportion of Mobile Broadband in the overall sales mix, partially offset by a decline in the non-IFRS gross margin of Global Services. In addition, Nokia Networks non-IFRS gross margin benefitted from approximately EUR 25 million of non-recurring IPR income.

 

Nokia’s continuing operations non-IFRS gross margin in the fourth quarter 2014 decreased sequentially to 43.5%, compared to 44.5% in the third quarter 2014. The sequential decrease in Nokia’s continuing operations non-IFRS gross margin in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to a lower non-IFRS gross margin in Nokia Networks. The sequential decrease in Nokia Networks non-IFRS gross margin in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to a higher proportion of Global Services in the overall sales mix, as well as a decrease in non-IFRS gross margin in Mobile Broadband, partially offset by non-recurring IPR income, as well as a higher non-IFRS gross margin in Global Services.

 

Non-IFRS Operating expenses

 

Nokia’s continuing operations non-IFRS research and development expenses increased both year-on-year and sequentially in the fourth quarter 2014 due to increases in non-IFRS research and development expenses in Nokia Networks, HERE and Nokia Technologies.

 

5



 

Nokia’s continuing operations non-IFRS selling, general and administrative expenses increased year-on-year in the fourth quarter 2014, primarily due to increases in Nokia Networks and Nokia Technologies.

 

In the fourth quarter 2014, Nokia’s continuing operations non-IFRS selling, general and administrative expenses increased sequentially, primarily due to increases in Nokia Networks and HERE.

 

Non-IFRS Operating profit

 

Nokia’s continuing operations non-IFRS operating profit increased year-on-year in the fourth quarter 2014 primarily due to an increase in non-IFRS operating profit for Nokia Networks, partially offset by a decreases in HERE and Nokia Technologies non-IFRS operating profit.

 

Nokia’s continuing operations non-IFRS operating profit increased sequentially in the fourth quarter 2014 primarily due to an increase in non-IFRS operating profit for Nokia Networks and, to a lesser extent, an increase in HERE non-IFRS operating profit, partially offset by a decrease in Nokia Technologies.

 

Nokia’s non-IFRS other income and expenses was an expense of EUR 2 million in the fourth quarter 2014, compared to an expense of EUR 52 million in the fourth quarter 2013 and an expense of EUR 16 million in the third quarter 2014. On a year-on-year and sequential basis, Nokia’s continuing operations non-IFRS other expenses decreased primarily due to lower other expenses in Nokia Networks.

 

Operating profit

 

Nokia’s continuing operations operating profit increased on a year-on-year basis primarily due to an increase in operating profit for Nokia Networks, partially offset by a decrease in HERE operating profit.

 

Sequentially, Nokia’s continuing operations operating profit increased primarily due to the absence of the EUR 1.2 billion goodwill impairment charge related to HERE, which was recorded in the third quarter 2014. Excluding the impairment charge, continuing operations operating profit increased on a sequential basis primarily due to an increase in operating profit for Nokia Networks, partially offset by a decrease in operating profit in Nokia Technologies.

 

Nokia’s continuing operations other income and expenses was an expense of EUR 38 million in the fourth quarter 2014, compared to an expense of EUR 154 million in the fourth quarter 2013 and an expense of EUR 48 million in the third quarter 2014. On a year-on-year basis, the decrease in other expenses was primarily due to lower restructuring charges in Nokia Networks, partially offset by higher charges related to the cost reduction program in HERE. On a sequential basis, the decrease in continuing operations other expenses was primarily due to lower other expenses in Nokia Networks, partially offset by higher charges related to the cost reduction program in HERE.

 

Financial income and expenses

 

In the fourth quarter 2014, Nokia’s continuing operations financial income and expenses was a net expense of EUR 39 million, compared to a net expense of EUR 50 million in the fourth quarter 2013 and a net expense of EUR 22 million in the third quarter 2014. On a year-on-year basis, the decrease in net expense was mainly due to lower interest expenses. On a sequential basis, the increase in net expense was primarily due to foreign exchange-related losses.

 

Cash and cash flow

In the fourth quarter 2014, Nokia’s total cash and other liquid assets increased by EUR 76 million and Nokia’s net cash and other liquid assets decreased by EUR 2 million, compared to the third quarter 2014. On a sequential basis cash inflows from operating activities were offset by cash outflows from financing activities.

 

In the fourth quarter 2014, Nokia’s net cash from operations was EUR 224 million. Nokia’s adjusted net profit before changes in net working capital was EUR 609 million in the fourth quarter 2014, primarily driven by the strong performance at Nokia Networks.

 

Nokia’s continuing operations had approximately EUR 60 million of restructuring-related cash outflows in the fourth quarter 2014. Excluding this, Nokia’s continuing operations net working capital was relatively stable as the negative cash impact from increases in receivables was offset by the positive impacts from increases in payables and decreases in inventories. In addition, Nokia’s continuing operations had cash outflows of approximately EUR 40 million related to net financial income and expenses, approximately EUR 100 million primarily related to foreign exchange hedging outflows and approximately EUR 100 million related to taxes.

 

Additionally, Nokia had cash outflows related to net working capital and taxes from discontinuing operations totaling approximately EUR 80 million in the fourth quarter 2014.

 

In the fourth quarter 2014, cash outflows from investing activities impacted net cash and other liquid assets primarily related to approximately EUR 90 million of capital expenditures. Additionally, Nokia’s discontinued operations had net cash inflows of approximately EUR 140 million related to the proceeds from the sale of substantially all of Nokia’s Devices & Services business to Microsoft.

 

In the fourth quarter 2014, cash outflows from financing activities primarily related to the share repurchases, which totaled approximately EUR 210 million during the quarter. Nokia also acquired subsidiary shares from a non-controlling interest holder and paid dividends to non-controlling interest holders during the fourth quarter totaling approximately EUR 50 million.

 

Foreign exchange rates had an approximately EUR 20 million negative impact on the translation of gross cash and approximately EUR 50 million negative impact on net cash.

The year-on-year increase of 8% in Nokia Networks net sales in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to an increase in net sales in Mobile Broadband and to a lesser extent in Global Services and non-recurring IPR income. At constant currency, Nokia Networks net sales would have increased 8% year-on-year.

 

Mobile Broadband net sales increased 13% year-on-year in the fourth quarter 2014, benefiting from strong net sales growth in overall core networking technologies and modest growth in overall radio technologies. Within radio technologies, strong year-on-year growth in LTE was partially offset by a decline in mature radio technologies.

 

The year-on-year increase of 3% in Global Services net sales in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily driven by growth in the systems integration business line, partially offset by a decline in the care business line.

 

On a regional basis, compared to the fourth quarter 2013, Nokia Networks net sales in North America increased 95% primarily due to LTE network deployments at major customers. In Europe, net sales increased 4% primarily due to higher network deployments in Southern and Eastern Europe. In Middle East and Africa, net sales increased 4% primarily due to higher network deployments. In Asia Pacific, net sales increased 1% primarily due to higher network deployments in Vietnam, Myanmar and India, partially offset by lower network deployments in Japan. In Greater China, net sales decreased 3% primarily driven by lower TD-LTE network deployments. In Latin America, net sales decreased 9% primarily due to lower managed services activity in Brazil partially offset by higher network deployments in Colombia.

 

The sequential increase of 14% in Nokia Networks net sales in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to an increase in net sales in Global Services and to a lesser extent in Mobile Broadband and non-recurring IPR income.

Global Services net sales increased 25% sequentially in the fourth quarter 2014 due to an increase in all service categories, with particularly strong growth in the network implementation and systems integration business lines. In addition, Global Services net sales in the fourth quarter 2014 benefitted from industry seasonality.

 

Mobile Broadband net sales increased 5% sequentially in the fourth quarter 2014 primarily due to higher net sales of core networking technologies, as well as industry seasonality. This was partially offset by a sequential decrease in net sales of radio technologies, following elevated levels of LTE net sales in the third quarter 2014.

 

On a regional basis, compared to the third quarter 2014, Nokia Networks net sales in Asia Pacific increased 17% primarily due to higher network deployments in Indonesia, Vietnam, Japan and Myanmar, partially offset by lower network deployments in India. In Europe, net sales increased 13% primarily due to higher network deployments. In Middle East and Africa, net sales increased 25% primarily due to higher network deployments in Middle East. In North America, net sales increased 12% primarily due to higher services net sales partially offset by lower network deployments following elevated levels of Mobile Broadband net sales in the third quarter 2014. In Latin America, net sales increased 16% primarily due to higher network deployments in Colombia. In Greater China, net sales increased 8% primarily due to higher TD-LTE network deployments.

 

In the fourth quarter 2014, Mobile Broadband represented 52% of Nokia Networks net sales, compared to 50% in the fourth quarter 2013 and 57% in the third quarter 2014. In the fourth quarter 2014, Global Services represented 47% of Nokia Networks net sales, compared to 50% in the fourth quarter 2013 and 43% in the third quarter 2014. The sequentially higher proportion of Global Services net sales in the fourth quarter 2014 is consistent with the outlook we provided in our third quarter 2014 interim report.

 

Non-IFRS Gross margin

 

On a year-on-year basis, Nokia Networks non-IFRS gross margin in the fourth quarter 2014 increased primarily due to an increase in non-IFRS gross margin for Mobile Broadband, as well as a higher proportion of Mobile Broadband in the overall sales mix, partially offset by a decline in the non-IFRS gross margin of Global Services. In addition, Nokia Networks non-IFRS gross margin benefitted from approximately EUR 25 million of non-recurring IPR income.

 

The year-on-year increase in non-IFRS gross margin in Mobile Broadband in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to a higher proportion of core networking technologies in the sales mix, partially offset by a lower gross margin in radio technologies. In addition, Mobile Broadband non-IFRS gross margin in the fourth quarter 2014 benefitted from

the absence of costs incurred in anticipation of a technology shift to TD-LTE related to major projects in China, which adversely affected the non-IFRS gross margin of Mobile Broadband in the fourth quarter 2013.

 

The year-on-year decrease in Global Services non-IFRS gross margin in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to lower gross margin in network planning and optimization, network implementation and care business lines, partially offset by a higher proportion of systems integration in the sales mix, as well as margin improvement in the systems integration business line.

 

On a sequential basis, the decrease in Nokia Networks non-IFRS gross margin in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to a higher proportion of Global Services in the overall sales mix, as well as a decrease in non-IFRS gross margin in Mobile Broadband, partially offset by non-recurring IPR income, as well as a higher non-IFRS gross margin in Global Services.

 

The sequential decrease in non-IFRS gross margin in Mobile Broadband in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to lower gross margin in radio technologies, partially offset by a higher proportion of core networking technologies in the sales mix.

 

The sequential increase in non-IFRS gross margin in Global Services in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to improved margin in the systems integration business line.

 

Non-IFRS Operating expenses

 

Nokia Networks non-IFRS research and development expenses increased 8% year-on-year in the fourth quarter 2014, primarily due to headcount increases mainly related to increased in-house activities, partially offset by lower subcontracting costs. Nokia Networks continues to invest in targeted growth areas, most notably LTE, small cells and telco cloud, while reducing investments in mature technologies. On a sequential basis, non-IFRS research and development expenses increased 11% primarily due to headcount increases mainly related to increased in-house activities, partially offset by lower subcontracting costs.

 

On a year-on-year basis, Nokia Networks non-IFRS selling, general and administrative expenses increased 6% in the fourth quarter 2014 primarily due to headcount increases related to an increased focus on growth. On a sequential basis, Nokia Networks non-IFRS selling, general and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter 2014 increased 11% primarily due to costs associated with information technology and finance related projects, as well as headcount increases.

 

Non-IFRS Operating profit

 

The year-on-year increase in Nokia Networks non-IFRS operating profit in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to higher non-IFRS operating profit in Mobile Broadband, partially offset by the slightly lower non-IFRS operating profit in Global Services. On a year-on-year basis, the increase in Mobile Broadband non-IFRS operating profit was primarily due to higher non-IFRS gross profit, partially offset by an increase in non-IFRS operating expenses. The slightly lower non-IFRS operating profit in Global Services was primarily due to lower non-IFRS gross profit.

 

The sequential increase in Nokia Networks non-IFRS operating profit in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to higher non-IFRS operating profit in Global Services, partially offset by lower non-IFRS operating profit in Mobile Broadband.

Net sales

 

In the fourth quarter 2014, HERE net sales increased 15% year-on-year, primarily due to higher sales to vehicle customers and, to a lesser extent, from Microsoft becoming a more significant licensee of HERE’s services, as well as higher sales to enterprise customers. The increase was partially offset by lower recognition of revenue related to smartphone sales by our former Devices & Services business and lower sales to personal navigation device (PND) customers consistent with declines in the PND market. At constant currency, HERE overall net sales would have increased 12% year-on-year.

 

In the fourth quarter 2014, HERE net sales increased 24% sequentially, primarily due to higher sales to vehicle customers and, to a lesser extent, higher seasonal sales to PND and enterprise customers, partially offset by lower recognition of revenue related to smartphone sales by our former Devices & Services business. At constant currency, HERE overall net sales would have increased 21% sequentially.

 

In the fourth quarter 2014, HERE had sales of new vehicle licenses of 3.9 million units, compared to 3.2 million units in the fourth quarter 2013 and 3.2 million units in the third quarter 2014. On both a year-on-year and sequential basis, unit sales to vehicle customers increased primarily due to higher vehicle sales and higher consumer uptake of in-vehicle navigation.

 

Sales to vehicle customers represented well over 50% of HERE net sales in the fourth quarter 2014, as well as in the fourth quarter 2013 and the third quarter 2014.

 

Non-IFRS Gross margin

 

On a year-on-year and sequential basis, HERE non-IFRS gross margin in the fourth quarter 2014 was relatively stable.

 

Non-IFRS Operating expenses

 

On a year-on- year basis, HERE non-IFRS research and development expenses increased 23% in the fourth quarter 2014, primarily due to higher investments in targeted growth areas, including higher research and development expenses related to our acquisition of Medio, which was completed on July 2, 2014, as well as higher costs related to incentive accruals. On a sequential basis, HERE non-IFRS research and development expenses increased 8% in the fourth quarter 2014, primarily due to higher investments in targeted growth areas and higher cost related to incentive accruals.

 

HERE non-IFRS selling, general, and administrative expenses increased 13% in the fourth quarter 2014 on a year-on-year basis, primarily due to higher business support costs and higher cost related to incentive accruals. On a sequential basis, HERE non-IFRS selling, general, and administrative expenses increased 29% in the third quarter 2014, primarily due to higher seasonal marketing expenses, higher business support costs and higher cost related to incentive accruals.

Non-IFRS Operating profit

 

The year-on-year decrease in HERE non-IFRS operating profit in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to higher non-IFRS operating expenses, partially offset by higher non-IFRS gross profit.

 

The sequential increase in HERE non-IFRS operating profit in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to higher non-IFRS gross profit, partially offset by higher non-IFRS operating expenses.

 

HERE non-IFRS other income and expenses was approximately zero in the fourth quarter 2014, compared to approximately zero in the fourth quarter 2013 and an income of EUR 1 million in the third quarter 2014.

 

Global Cost Reduction Program

 

As previously disclosed, in the third quarter 2014, Nokia announced the sharpening of the HERE strategy and an adjustment to the related long-range plan. As part of its decision to curtail investments in certain higher risk longer-term growth opportunities, HERE initiated a cost reduction program during the fourth quarter 2014. HERE’s progress on reducing costs has resulted in greater visibility to the level of efficiencies that we believe are achievable, and contributed to HERE’s new 2015 non-IFRS operating margin outlook, which we raised to 7% to 12% from the previous range of 5% to 10%. Related to this program, HERE recorded charges of approximately EUR 30 million and had related cash outflows of approximately EUR 12 million in the fourth quarter 2014. In total, we estimate the cumulative charges will amount to approximately EUR 30 million and related cash outflows will amount to approximately EUR 24 million. Changes in estimates regarding the timing or amount of costs to be incurred and associated cash flows may become necessary as the program is being completed. HERE continues to focus investments in priority growth areas, particularly in the automotive and enterprise industries.

Net sales

 

The year-on-year increase in Nokia Technologies net sales in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to Microsoft becoming a more significant intellectual property licensee in conjunction with the sale of substantially all of Nokia’s Devices & Services business to Microsoft and higher intellectual property licensing income from certain licensees. These increases were partially offset by declines in licensing income from certain other licensees that experienced lower levels of business activity.

 

The slight sequential decrease in Nokia Technologies net sales in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to lower licensing income from a licensee that experienced lower levels of business activity.

 

Non-IFRS Gross margin

 

On a year-on-year and sequential basis, Nokia Technologies non-IFRS gross margin was stable in the fourth quarter 2014.

 

Non-IFRS Operating expenses

 

Nokia Technologies non-IFRS research and development expenses in the fourth quarter 2014 increased 67% on a year-on-year basis and 22% sequentially. On a year-on-year basis, the increase was primarily due to investments in business activities, which target new and significant long-term growth opportunities, as well as higher cost related to incentive accruals. The sequential increase was primarily due to investments in business activities, which target new and significant long-term growth opportunities, including seasonally higher costs related to patent filings.

 

Nokia Technologies non-IFRS selling, general and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter 2014 increased 140% year-on-year and 41% sequentially, primarily due to increased activities related to anticipated and ongoing patent licensing cases, as well as higher business support costs and non-recurring consultancy costs. In addition, higher cost

 

11



 

related to incentive accruals in the fourth quarter 2014 also contributed to the increase in non-IFRS selling, general and administrative expenses on a year-on-year basis.

 

Non-IFRS Operating profit

 

The year-on-year decrease in Nokia Technologies non-IFRS operating profit in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to higher non-IFRS operating expenses, partially offset by higher non-IFRS gross profit.

 

The sequential decrease in Nokia Technologies non-IFRS operating profit in the fourth quarter 2014 was primarily due to higher non-IFRS operating expenses and, to a lesser extent, lower non-IFRS gross profit.

 

Nokia Technologies non-IFRS other income and expenses was an expense of EUR 1 million in the fourth quarter 2014, compared to approximately zero in the fourth quarter 2013 and an income of EUR 2 million in the third quarter 2014.

 

DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

 

Discontinued operations profit of EUR 117 million in the fourth quarter 2014 was mainly driven by the recognition of a tax benefit related to the utilization of unrecognized tax attributes created in conjunction with the sale of the Devices & Services business to Microsoft. This was partially offset by the recording of an impairment charge during the fourth quarter 2014 of approximately EUR 50 million related to the minority shareholding Nokia retained in luxury mobile phone producer Vertu. The majority of our ownership in Vertu was divested by the former Devices & Services business in October 2012.
