CEO’s comment 

Comment regarding the interim report by Kimmo Alkio, President and CEO:

“I’m pleased to share that we have made strong progress in terms of overall performance and the integration of TietoEVRY. As Covid-19 has continued to create uncertainty across society, our markets and businesses, we have been able to provide continuity for our customers and have demonstrated good business resilience.

While Covid-19 had a higher negative impact on revenue in the third quarter than in previous quarters, we achieved strong adjusted operating profit of 14%. Our integration continues to progress at a fast pace and synergy realization is contributing to business performance, as communicated earlier. We are well on our way to realizing the value creation potential of the ongoing merger for the benefit of our customers, employees and shareholders.

Of our businesses, we are most delighted with the positive development of our Industry Software, which reached over 20% profitability as a result of systematic long-term transformation. Positive momentum also continues in our Financial Services Solutions business with several new wins in both the Nordics and international markets. Covid-19's impact on revenue was most visible in our Digital Consulting and Product Development Service businesses. The infrastructure business is continuing to transform its delivery and partnership model and temporarily delivering lower profitability.

We are pleased to have reinstated our annual guidance, as announced on 20 October 2020, with the expectation of improving our profitability (combined adjusted EBIT) from the previous year’s level.

I would like to thank all TietoEVRY colleagues for their continued adaptation to the implications of the global pandemic. We have a great opportunity to accelerate digitalization of enterprises and the public sector – to create higher value for society, our customers, employees and shareholders."
