* 3/2017: 16 000 m² uudistustyön alla, 3/2016: 15 250 m². EPRA:n (European Public Real Estate Association) suositusten mukaisesti laskettu operatiivinen tulos ei sisällä realisoitumattomia valuuttakurssieroja, käyvän arvon muutoksia eikä kertaluonteisia eriä kuten luovutusvoittoja tai –tappioita. Euroopan arvopaperimarkkinaviranomaisen (European Securities and Markets Authority, ESMA) uudet ohjeet vaihtoehtoisista tunnusluvuista (tunnusluvuista, jotka eivät perustu tilinpäätösnormistoon) tulivat voimaan heinäkuussa 2016. Technopolis esittää vaihtoehtoisia tunnuslukuja, kuten EPRAn mukaisia tunnuslukuja, kuvaamaan liiketoimintojensa taloudellista kehitystä ja parantaakseen vertailukelpoisuutta eri raportointikausien välillä. Vaihtoehtoisia tunnuslukuja ei tule pitää IFRS-tilinpäätösnormistossa määriteltyjä tunnuslukuja korvaavina mittareina. Vertailukausien osakekohtaiset tiedot on osakeantioikaistu syksyn 2016 osakeannin johdosta. Tulevaisuudennäkymät ennallaan Technopolis arvioi liikevaihdon ja käyttökatteen nousevan vuodesta 2016 olettaen sijoituskiinteistökannan ja valuuttakurssien säilyvän nykyisellään. Konsernin taloudellinen tulos on riippuvainen yleisen toimintaympäristön, asiakaskunnan liiketoiminnan, rahoitusmarkkinoiden, kiinteistömarkkinoiden tuottovaatimusten sekä valuuttakurssien kehityksestä. Ohjeistukseen voivat lisäksi vaikuttaa muutokset kiinteistökannassa. Toimitusjohtaja Keith Silverang: ”Ensimmäisen neljänneksen operatiivinen tuloksemme oli vahva. Liikevaihto kasvoi 5,8 % edellisvuodesta ilman valuuttakurssivaikutusta. Keskeisimpiä syitä nousuun olivat korkeammat vuokrausasteet sekä suurempi vuokrattava pinta-ala, jota lisäsivät Göteborgin kampusinvestointi ja viime vuonna valmistuneet laajennushankkeet. Taloudellinen vuokrausaste oli maaliskuun lopussa hyvä, 93,5 % (92,5 %). Liiketoimintamme kehittyi suotuisasti lähes kaikissa yksiköissä. Myös Oulussa solmimme äskettäin uusia, pitkäaikaisia vuokrasopimuksia. Palveluliiketoimintamme on meille yhä tärkeämpää ja se jatkaa tasaista kasvuaan. Palveluiden osuus liikevaihdosta yltää nyt jo 13,5 %:iin (12,6 %), ja palveluliiketoiminnan liikevaihto on kasvanut 15,9 % (14,5 %) edellisvuodesta. Myös palveluiden kannattavuus on parantunut: käyttökateprosentti nousi 11,7 %:iin (7,9 %) edellisvuodesta. Parhaita tuloksia saavuttaneissa liiketoimintayksiköissämme palveluiden osuus liikevaihdosta oli jo lähes 20 % ja käyttökateprosentti oli yli 22%. Tähän suuntaan haluamme koko yhtiön kehittyvän. Kiinteistöliiketoiminnan käyttökate pysyi vakaana ja oli 64,8 % (64,8 %).

Additional key performance indicators are available at elisa.com/investors (Elisa Operational Data.xlsx) CEO Veli-Matti Mattila: Another excellent result with the continuous improvement of operations Elisa's competitiveness continued to gain strength. The revenue and earnings grew from the previous year. The revenue growth was due to an increase in mobile revenue, the continuous improvement of Elisa's operations and the development of productivity, as well as the Anvia acquisition. Customer satisfaction forms an important part of productivity. The Net Promoter Score of Elisa's consumer customer service has risen by 30 percentage points over the past three years. The active use of smart phones and the clear product range of subscriptions steer consumers and corporate customers as well as organisations towards a shift to faster mobile broadband subscriptions. Mobile subscription base declined by 23,900 during the quarter due to decrease in prepaid subscriptions. The postpaid base remained unchanged. The fixed network broadband subscription base decreased by 1,500 subscriptions. Customers value the unlimited data pricing model and the quality of Elisa's network. The download figures of eBooks began to approach the sales figures of paperbacks. More than 650,000 eBooks were downloaded from Elisa Kirja over the past year. Elisa Kirja is Finland's biggest reseller of eBooks. The offering of Elisa Viihde was popular. The new original series Konttori (The Office) had a record start in the Aitio programme library.

We develop and digitalise the operations of business enterprises and organisations. This makes us a strong part of Finnish society. In cooperation with Technopolis, we introduced a new solution that facilitates the mobility of work, providing access to a secure and scalable wireless corporate network outside the office as well. In addition, we introduced the smart car service S-Drive to the market in cooperation with S Group. The new service connects a car and the related corporate ecosystem of other operators supporting motoring to the network. The service collects all data related to driving to an easy-to-use smart phone application. Elisa made the Nordic countries' first commercial video call in the 700 MHz 4G-network. The new frequency improves mobile broadband coverage particularly indoors. We were the first in Finland to test a cloud-based technology which allows for the flexible transportation of base station capacity. This enables us to provide customers with increasingly fast and reliable connections. Elisa's employees elected Elisa among Finland's greatest places to work. Elisa is the largest listed company ever in the category of Great Place to Work Finland's large companies, in which it achieved third place. We invest actively in the employment of young people. Together with its subsidiaries and agencies offering temporary workforce, Elisa will hire 250 young people for summer jobs. We are also taking part in the Responsible Summer Job campaign. We also initiated a project called WORD, which aims to draw attention to the passable level of Finnish boys' reading skills. The project aims to discover new and interesting contents and ways to read them. We focus on the systematic improvement of the customer experience and our operations. Improving our productivity, developing digital services for our customers and maintaining our strong investment ability create a solid foundation for competitive operations in the future. The macroeconomic environment in Finland is still expected to be weak in 2017, regardless of some positive developments. Competition in the Finnish telecommunications market also remains challenging. Revenue is estimated to be higher than in 2016. Mobile data and digital services are expected to increase revenue. Comparable EBITDA is anticipated to be higher than in 2016. Capital expenditure is expected to be a maximum of 13 per cent of revenue while the mid-term target of a maximum of 12 per cent is still valid. Elisa’s financial position and liquidity are good. Elisa is continuing its productivity improvement development, for example by increasing automation in different processes, like network operations and delivery. Additionally, Elisa’s continuous quality improvement measures will increase customer satisfaction and efficiency, and reduce costs. Elisa's transformation into a provider of exciting, new and relevant services for its customers is continuing. Long-term growth and profitability improvement will derive from mobile data market growth, as well as digital online and ICT services.
