CEO COMMENTS

After two years of pandemic and Corona restrictions, most countries opened at the beginning of 2022 and life gradually returned to normal again. Covid 19 never had a severe impact on Talkpool’s business, but it created an uncertainty among our customers that hampered business decisions. Some countries were completely locked down, which made sales activities very difficult. Although the direct problems are now history, some ”long covid symptoms” like non-working supply chains are still affecting our business to some extent. As Talkpool identified this risk early and secured a critical stock of components and IoT products, business impact has been limited.

What no one really did foresee was the brutal Russian attack on Ukraine on February 24, that started a war still ongoing and affecting the whole world. Soaring energy prices and inflation is increasing the operational costs for Talkpool, but it is also increasing the demand for energy saving solutions from real estate owners, telecom operators and tower companies. As a reaction on the real estate depreciation and costs caused by increasing interest rates, green building certifications are more in demand than ever in the real estate world.

For Talkpool the first quarter of the year is always the slowest. This year several countries including Germany, the Netherlands and the USA overperformed their sales targets as the demand for broadband network kept growing.

The sales of IoT solutions and products did however suffer during the first months of the year. Important projects were unexpectedly delayed and ongoing customer negotiations dragged into the second quarter. However, taking the high sales activity and the market trends into consideration we are confident that sales will pick up in Q2. In particular when the real-estate companies evaluate their energy costs of the passed heating season.

In March it was decided that Talkpool’s Swedish bond loan will be extended to December 31, 2022, with an option to repay on an ongoing basis. Half of the funds received from asset sales will go to amortization of the bond loan.

Network Services

The massive 5G and fibre network deployment projects in the USA continued to create a high demand for communication networks expertise and services.

In December Talkpool signed a contract with Ericsson USA for a 5G roll out services project in Puerto Rico. The project will run at least until the end of 2022 and the contract value for Talkpool will be at least USD 1,5m. In January Talkpool initiated the first service deliveries to Ericsson and the ramp-up with additional teams continued throughout the quarter. The project was off to a good start with a smooth delivery of high-quality services. Already during the first quarter the project generated 30% more revenue and 60% higher margin than expected. Talkpool LLC also built a substantial pipeline of concrete new opportunities during the quarter and preparations for new projects were initiated. To secure full focus and management attention during the start of the Ericsson 5G project in Puerto Rico, new project activities were pushed out to Q2.

Talkpool has a long history of delivering mobile network services to vendors and operators in the Americas, and we are glad to be back and work with the latest technology in the region. We have big plans to invest and grow in this expansive region again and we know from several request that our services are in high demand in the region.

In February ZT Group signed an agreement with Talkpool to buy 100% of its shares in Talkpool Pakistan for USD 3.7 million. The closing conditions are to be met latest by the 30th of June 2022. This transaction is an important step in Talkpool’s strategy to increasingly focus on technology in developed markets, mainly in western Europe and the USA. The returns from the divestments will also be used to deleverage and lower the financial costs through payback of bonds and loans.

Talkpool Germany overperformed its sales forecast for Q1 with over 40% and reached an all-time high revenue in March, as the demand for fiber optic planning solutions from Deutsche Telekom continued up from an already high level.  Our staff was working at its full capacity and the hiring of several new planners was progressing well. The steady increase in business volume, service areas and geographic footprint in Germany is the fruit of a long and close partnership between Deutsche Telekom and Talkpool.

IoT

The sales of IoT solutions and products in the Swedish market suffered during the first months of the year. Important projects were unexpectedly delayed and ongoing customer negotiations dragged into the second quarter. However, taking the high sales activity and the market trend into consideration we are confident that sales will pick up in Q2. In particular when the real-estate companies evaluate their energy costs of the passed heating season.

SISAB (Skolfastigheter i Stockholm AB), a Swedish company that owns and develops 600 preschools, compulsory schools and upper-secondary schools in Stockholm, introduced of a new solution that makes it possible to measure radon levels in their properties in real time. By connecting Radonova’s and Talkpool’s new SPIRIT wireless radon logger to SISAB’s existing AI operating system SOLIDA, the radon content in schools can now be measured and analyzed continuously. Every day, around 200,000 people spend time in SISAB’s 1.8 million square meters of educational facilities. This means that security and safety always come high on the agenda. In addition to safety, sustainably and energy efficiency are key. Some of the measures required to reduce elevated radon levels are energy intensive. With the new solution ventilation is optimised and the indoor climate is secured in an energy-smart way.

Talkpool has been part of a project with Swedish Uppsala University where Talkpool’s air quality devices were installed in vehicles to monitor air quality inside the vehicle. The data has given important insights in air quality status in public transport and has also been used to verify the effect of air cleaning systems. The project focused on an innovative technology for air cleaning in vehicles using heat from the vehicle’s engine to sterilize virus particles in the air. Talkpool’s air quality sensors showed different parameters of air quality, such as carbon dioxide or particulate matter, and were monitoring the process. The results were very positive and showed a significant improvement of the air quality in buses with the air purification system installed. 

The system was also tested in ambulances under cold weather circumstances. The tests verified that the system also operates successfully in harsh winter conditions, leading to a reduction in the risk of spreading viruses and bacteria. One of the test ambulances is now on its way to Ukraine, filled with medical equipment. The vehicle and medical equipment are donated to Ukraine, supporting the country in its crisis situation.

1st Quarter 2022

A few years ago, Talkpool launched its `Talkpool-inside’ strategy, where Talkpool’s radio equipment is embedded into the product offering of companies that have a strong footprint in their respective domains. B METERS, a long-term Talkpool partner, is an Italian company that has been designing and producing water meters for 30 years. The yearly production currently exceeds 1,8 million units, putting B METERS in a leading position both at national and European level.

In April B METERS placed an order for 15.000 of Talkpool’s IoT communication devices, compatible with their water meters. The order shows that demand for the product, first launched in 2018, keeps increasing, and the rollout of the product is reaching large scale.

The partnership fits well in the `Talkpool-inside’ concept and the sale of 15.000 LoRaWAN modules is a sign of the success of the strategy. The smart water meters with Talkpool inside will be sold by B METERS to its end-customers, in various markets all over Europe.

The primary market driving use cases are submetering in real estate and smart metering by utility companies. Using smart meters for these applications allows for strengthened control of water management systems, including the detection of leakages and the invoicing of consumption, based on real-time insights in actual consumption.

Reduction of water consumption is an important part of Talkpool’s water management concept for buildings. Another one is water leakage detection. After a period
of extensive analysis and development work, Purus and Talkpool have jointly developed the world’s first smart floor drain. The floor drain has an integrated humidity sensor, which transmits an alarm over the internet when a suspected leakage is detected.

A couple of years ago, insurance company Folksam initiated a collaboration between Purus, Anticimex and Talkpool, to explore the opportunities to use new technology to reduce water damage costs. Folksam has run a pilot installation for one year with actual customers. Although the sample size was small, the smart floor drain was able to show a decrease of water damage related costs by 60%, through the enablement of partial repairs of the bathroom.

In April the floor drain was launched at the big construction fair Nordbygg in Stockholm. The product and the concept were met with an overwhelming interest from insurance companies, property owners, installers and industry associations, which indicates a great
market potential.
