* Turnaround in Swedish operations
* Mycab International resolves on listing in Stockholm
Turnaround in Swedish operations
The acquired Swedish operation has undergone a restructuring resulting in a more effective cost structure, which has allowed the company to reduce its annual cost level with approximately MSEK 7,0. The cost reduction is primarily emanating from management (MSEK 2, 4), IT-Services (MSEK 0, 6) and Fulfillments (MSEK 3,6).
The Swedish operation was acquired in second quarter and has shown positive EBITDA in subsequent quarters. In fourth quarter the EBITDA amounted to MSEK 0,9 however Net profit was negative.
For the group as a whole the year-end EBITDA amounted to 854 KEUR with a Net Operating Income at KEUR 341. Net Income (after tax) amounted to KEUR 125.
Mycab International resolves on listing in Stockholm
At the end of the year former shareholders in Netrevelation received, free of charge, 74 million shares constituting 24 % of all shares in Mycab International SA. The transaction was part of the agreement related to the acquisition of the Swedish operation from Netrevelation in second quarter.
The distribution of shares, to shareholders in former Netrevelation, entails that the company´s base of shareholders is widely expanded, which implies that the share spread requirement for a listing of the company is met. The fact that the beneficiary of the shares is the former shareholders in Netrevelation is considered by the principal owner in Mycab International to be in favor for the interest of the company, as a whole, and for the trade of the company´s shares when it becomes listed.
Mycab Internationals will be listed in Stockholm Sweden at a secondary market known as AktieTorget. First date of trade is 8th March 2012.
Share issue fully subscribed
The share issue, with subscription period 12th Jan - 27th Feb 2012, was fully subscribed. Shareholders and public subscribed 54 % and underwriters the remaining part (46 %). The issue totaled MSEK 25,7 before issuance costs.
Cooperation with Flygtaxi in Scandinavia
Mycab announced, in February, that the company has entered into cooperation with the Swedish based company Flygtaxi. The justification of this cooperation is based on the fact that Flygtaxi has an existing, and successful Amadeus distribution to all travel agents in Scandinavia with a current sale at MSEK 250 per annum, however services, up until now has only been offered domestically in Sweden.
With the cooperation, between Mycab and Flygtaxi, it will be possible to offer all travel agents, in Scandinavia, a worldwide flight transfer product through an existing "up and running" distribution.
The domestic (Swedish) sale of flight transfer, through the mentioned distribution channel, corresponds to 6 % of all domestic air ticket sales and Mycab calculates with same relations for international travellers. This gives Mycab a MSEK 1000 potential business, through this channel. Objective is to achieve 40 % share of this potential in a first step. Launch is expected during 2012.

Assessment of Risk Environment
Growth is crucial for Mycab before it can achieve its projected financial objectives, which in turn is entirely depended on how well the international rollout succeeds. Current business, (acquired by Mycab International SA in 2011), is primarily emanating from the Swedish market where the business, historically, has not met its growth objectives. However the new set, compared to the previous operation in Sweden, is two pronged. Firstly there is an international perspective and secondly a focusing on online e-commerce. A new IT- platform, Netsys™ V5, has been developed to accommodate the new strategy but has still pilot phase to accomplish. Although the international market for Mycab business is many times larger than the Swedish market alone, Mycab cannot guarantee that projected growth objectives are met within time frame.
Future earnings are primarily depended on the group's ability to sustain required margins despite growth. Since Mycab intends to grow with profit there is a risk that growth may implicate pressure on margins due to competition. A large part of the group costs is fixed, in a medium term perspective, and thus earnings are highly susceptible to relation margin and volume, thus Mycab cannot guarantee that projected growth with profit is met.
