impact of the changing media landscape to the traditional media monitoring

positive. Also the operations in Germany and the UK have been successfully

The revenue of M-Brain Group in 2015 was EUR 30 341 thousand. The operating
profit of the company was EUR 1.283,6 thousand.

The revenue of the company in 2015 increased mainly due to the acquisition of
the GIA Group. The GIA Group was acquired in the autumn of 2014, and it had
an effect on the Group's financial figures in 2014 for four months. In
particular, the Finnish market remained challenging due to the overall
economic situation and the diminishing traditional business, caused by the
ongoing media revolution. During the financial year, the Group continued the
integration of the acquired subsidiaries and the rationalization of the
operations. The measures taken allowed the Group to achieve cost savings by
removing duplicate operations and enhancing the efficiency of production. The
impact of these measures was visible already in 2015 through increased
profits, but they will also strengthen the profit for the full year 2016

M-Brain's EBITDA was EUR 2.590,6 thousand (January 1 - December 31, 2014:
922,5) i.e. 8,5% of the net sales (3,9%). EBITDA of the Group includes
approximately EUR 752 thousand of non-recurring costs (2014: EUR 1253
thousand). revenue and the result. The depreciations for the financial period
were EUR 1.307,0 thousand and operating profit EUR 1.283,6 thousand (January

The Company's Finnish subsidiary Global Intelligence Alliance Group Oy merged
with its sister company M-Brain Insight Oy on June 30, 2015.


M-Brain's investments, EUR 947,6 thousand, are mainly related to the internal
product development. The intangible assets resulting from the internal
development activities will be recognized in the balance sheet once the
expenses of the development phase can be calculated reliably, once the
completion of the product can be implemented technically, once the Group can
use or sell the product, once the Group can prove how the product will
generate likely future financial benefit, and once the Group has both the
intention and the resources to complete the development work and to sell the
product. After initial recognition, capitalized development costs are
measured at cost less accumulated depreciation/amortization and impairment
losses. Depreciation/amortization is recognized from the date the asset is
ready for use.
