Company

Ownership (effective fully diluted) Options
Aurelia 0,3 %
Eagle Filters 85,2 %
Enersize 13,2 %
Metgen 1,1 %
Nuuka Solutions 42,3 %
Sansox 10,3 %
Sofi Filtration 20,5 %

Eagle Filters Oy, Lumeron Oy and Loudspring Sweden AB were Loudspring's only subsidiaries at the end of the review period. Ownership is reported as effectively fully diluted except for Enersize, where effective ownership is reported due to Enersize being a listed company. Effective ownership takes into account both direct and indirect ownership in the portfolio firms. Loudspring has indirect ownership through Clean Future Fund (CFF), a Finnish limited partnership. Exit and dividend proceeds from portfolio companies may differ from ownership percentages, both in positive or negative direction, due to different share classes and provisions in shareholder agreements.

CEO'S REVIEW

We have just experienced the hottest summer on record and the need for climate actions that reduce CO2 emissions is urgent and clear. Loudspring's focus is on reducing CO2 emissions. We have been contemplating our optimal path forward, with a target to build value and operate with our own cash flow. Over the past years we have been steadily increasing our ownership in Eagle Filters. We are now at 85% ownership and have the option to go to 100 %. We have been making this choice as we see that Eagle Filters serves a large market, is technologically advanced and competitive, and can continue to grow for the foreseeable future. This development focus means that Loudspring will become an industrial company with clear undivided focus on Eagle Filters.

Going forward we will also integrate our impact report with our financial reporting so no separate report will be published. Impact reports will focus on CO2 emissions as we can measure these more reliably. To further increase the reliability of impact reporting Eagle Filters has been working together with customers to analyze data on utilization rates and efficiency improvements of their gas turbines.   

OVERALL DEVELOPMENT

H1 2021 the markets for energy efficiency technologies developed positively. Energy utilities continued their gas turbine maintenance cycles after several delays in 2020. Nuuka's SaaS billing continued to increase. However, new customer acquisitions remained challenging with ongoing limitations on physical meetings.

The combined revenue (non audited estimate) of core holdings was 2,2 million EUR, a 12% increase from H1 2020. The increase was due to growth of Eagle Filters. Core holdings include Eagle Filters, Nuuka Solutions and Sofi Filtration.The comments on associated companies are not full descriptions of each of the associated companies' situations or their risks. Risks are described in more detail in the Risks and Uncertainties section. Loudspring will in this review provide unaudited financial estimates of its core portfolio provided that they are available at the time of this report.

REVENUE DEVELOPMENT FOR LOUDSPRING'S CORE HOLDINGS H1 2016 - H1 2021 (ESTIMATED, NON-AUDITED), EXCLUDING ENERSIZE

Loudspring has provided high and low revenue targets for Eagle Filters for this and the following years. The targets are not financial guidance and will only be in general updated on an annual or semi-annual basis. Deviation from these targets will not trigger a positive or negative profit warning. 

Loudspring has previously given targets also for Nuuka Solutions. At the time of reporting, Nuuka is not on track to reach the minimum revenue target set earlier for 2021. Loudspring will continue to report Nuuka's MRR development which is the most important parameter determining a SaaS company's valuation but will no longer update targets for Nuuka Solutions, as targets will only be given for subsidiaries in Loudspring's control.    

EAGLE FILTERS

Eagle Filters provides advanced air filtration solutions for energy utilities, which increases the efficiency of gas turbines. The technology significantly reduces CO2 emissions and increases profitability. Eagle's technology is being used by some of the world's largest energy utilities. Eagle also produces high-quality respirators to fight the pandemic. Loudspring owns 85% of Eagle and has an option to acquire all remaining shares of Eagle Filters. The option is valid until the end of 2025. The purchase price is tied to the future financial performance of the company, and the target of Loudspring is to use a portion of Eagle's future dividends for acquiring the remaining shares.

BUSINESS UPDATE

Eagle Filters companies' revenue H1 2021 was EUR 1,5 million (unaudited estimate), a 18% increase from H1 2020. Eagle Filters companies' revenue was EUR 2,44 million and EBITDA EUR -1,76 million for 2020 (audited).

Moving the production of industrial products in-house has caused delays in deliveries and moved a part of revenue to H2. Respirator sales volumes were limited during H1. The costs associated with production ramp up as well as delays in revenue recognition have impacted EBITDA negatively. Eagle's order book is record high, with EUR 3,34 million of accumulated revenue and orders for 2021 at the time of reporting. May and June were slow in order intake. The pipeline of potential new orders remains on a high level. However, Eagle's current manufacturing capacity limits growth in the near future. Investments to increase the output of industrial products are ongoing. 

The key role of gas turbines as part of a clean energy infrastructure is becoming increasingly apparent. As the share of solar and wind energy increases, large quantities of energy storage will be needed to balance out the intermittency of weather dependent power production. Producing hydrogen and synthetic gas with electricity enables storage of large quantities of energy as well as conversion back to electricity with the existing gas turbine infrastructure that accounts for over 20% of world electricity production. A growing number of experts believe that gas turbines will be a long lasting and important part of a CO2 neutral energy infrastructure. Making these turbines run more efficiently is one step closer to achieving an uninterrupted supply of CO2 neutral electricity.

During H1 the company progressed in the development of manufacturing, logistics, quality and internal processes. Eagle's quality system has been audited by a reputable notified body, and the company is in the final stages of issuance of ISO 9001 and 14001 certifications. 

The company has developed new respirator products and ordered new fully automated production equipment to enable improvement of product characteristics while significantly lowering production costs. The new product versions will be launched after their production has been ramped up and CE certification process has been completed. Eagle continued development of new filter media, in order to lower production cost and further improve filtration efficiency of its industrial products.

NUUKA SOLUTIONS

Nuuka is a PropTech company helping major real estate owners and developers, retail chains, and cities to deliver a great indoor climate, save energy, reduce operating costs, and increase property lifetime value. Nuuka's hardware-independent platform connects to any Building Management System and IOT solution, analyzing and optimizing buildings by using machine learning. Nuuka has already connected 3000 buildings in six countries and strives to save the planet, one building at a time.

BUSINESS UPDATE

Nuuka companies' revenue H1 2021 was EUR 604 thousand (unaudited estimate). Revenue decreased by 6% from H1 2020. Nuukas revenue was EUR 1,31 million and EBITDA EUR -1,25 million for 2020 (audited).

Nuuka's SaaS during H1 was EUR 485 thousand, up 34% from H1 2020. Invoiced MRR grew to EUR 85 thousand / month in June, up 17% from June 2020. The decrease in revenue was mainly due to one large customer project being finalized, thus resulting in lower project revenues in 2021. Nuuka continues to concentrate on increasing SaaS revenues. EBITDA was impacted negatively by costs related to investments in growth. 

Commercial pilots for Nuuka's Artificial Intelligence and Diagnostics products were ongoing. Results show improved indoor air quality as well as significant energy savings. 

The corona epidemic continues to slow down new customer acquisition. However, the outlook for energy saving technologies in the real estate industry is positive at the time of reporting.

Nuuka's ongoing customer projects and pipeline provide a solid opportunity to increase Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR) during H2. The recurring revenue grows gradually as buildings are connected to Nuuka over a period of several months or years in some cases.

IMPACT

  • Climate Change

  • Water

  • Natural resources

For 2020 the estimated overall CO2 reduction impact for Eagle Filters is approximately 125 000 tons CO2. This is the estimated amount of CO2 that was not emitted, but would have been emitted to the atmosphere without deploying Eagle's technology. The CO2 reduction equates to the annual carbon footprint of 12 000 Finns. 

Our core purpose is saving natural resources. All of our portfolio companies provide products and solutions that save energy or water for the customers. To assess our impact, we have estimated the global CO2 impact of our subsidiary, Eagle Filters. We focus on providing an accurate estimate of Eagle Filters because the company's environmental impact outweighs the rest of the portfolio many fold, and furthermore, as the main owner of the company we can take full credit for its impact and avoid any possible double accounting. We focus on CO2 impact because we can achieve much greater accuracy in our estimates as opposed to more complex calculations related to estimated water savings.

Eagle's high efficiency air filtration technology significantly increases the fuel efficiency up to 5% and on average appx 2% of gas turbines by keeping the compressor blades clean and avoiding friction caused by fouling. This translates into a vast opportunity for global CO2 emission reduction, since over 20% of world electricity is produced with gas turbines. Natural gas alongside coal and petroleum are the primary sources of CO2 and causes of global warming. The seemingly very large positive environmental impact to revenue ratio of Eagle Filters is explained by the fact that the company is alleviating the problem at its root and cutting emissions at the world's largest point emitters of CO2.   

We provide an estimate of the handprint of Eagle's products i.e. the CO2 savings achieved by customers by using Eagle's products each year. Eagle's own emissions from production, subcontracting and travel are not included as the footprint is insignificant in comparison to the handprint and this would not significantly affect the end result. 

To assess the CO2 impact as accurately as possible we have, together with our customers, analyzed the gas turbines' operational data, and compared performance after installing Eagle filters to the previous baseline performance of the turbines. This gives a very accurate estimate of the real CO2 savings achieved. A small part of the estimated savings is derived from smaller customer cases where data on pressure losses and fuel efficiency has not been analyzed, but we have instead used actual operating hours and utilization rates to estimate the CO2 savings by using conservative factors for efficiency improvement.
