Change of company name to SECANDA AG and annual report

InterCard AG Informationssysteme is to have a new name.

What we aim to express in this way is: a new company is being formed. To be precise, the change has already taken place. Today, with InterCard, Polyright, IntraKey, IDpendant and many others, we are a group of companies with very different strengths – let us say, skills. Above all, however, we are already a cohesive team that works together to design the future.

We have created a leading technology company from a series of technology providers. The result is our new identification system SECANDA.
Now we are transforming our company into a brand provider. With the change of the company name to SECANDA AG as a next step – thanks to your vote at the coming Annual General Meeting. The subsidiary companies and overseas branches will gradually also assume this name.
All this will mean: an identical brand for shares, systems and sales structures. From this single message we expect a strong correlation with increased value for our company – and of course for the ranking by search engines. So in this way we have already laid the foundations for new digital marketing.

With our campaign WE ARE SECANDA we make clear what we stand for and why that is an advantage for our customers, shareholders and all of us. With SECANDA IS HERE we are emphasising the unique features of our system. We are making SECANDA the basis of new PR activities.
We are ready. With extensive international trademark rights for SECANDA, and with all the relevant international internet domains (more than 40) and social media accounts we shall be easier to find than before. In the past you could only find us via the domain www.intercard.org. We were often mistaken for others and not found. All that had a negative effect on the marketing of our systems and our shares. Now we are changing that.

With SECANDA, we are embarking on a new era for our company. We have proved that together we are more than singly. Accompany us as shareholders, employees and customers. In a partnership, for the benefit of all. WE ARE SECANDA.

Preliminary Annual Figures 2021

According to the preliminary figures, during the business year 2021 the company sales revenues of InterCard AG Informationssysteme increased from EUR 20.7 million to EUR 23.1 million. The increase is due primarily to the consolidation of our new majority holding IDpendant, which is included for the entire year for the first time. Moreover, the InterCard Group has started into the new business year 2022 with a very good backlog of orders.

As was to be expected, the concern result was still negatively affected by the closures in the universities which form our core market as a result of the pandemic. Nonetheless, according to the preliminary figures the EBITDA amounted to TEUR 1,848 (previous year: TEUR 2,315), the EBIT amounted to TEUR 702 (previous year: TEUR 1,175) and the EBT amounted to TEUR 548 (previous year: TEUR 1,047). It was during 2021 that the financial effects of the pandemic reached their high point. By contrast, the previous year 2020 had begun with high revenues during the first quarter.

Our university customers have opened again and have thus evidently largely put the problems of 2021 behind them. Thus installations in our previous core market, the universities, are generally possible again.

Against this background, as of the end of 2021 InterCard has now completely ended the short working hours which it had taken advantage of in the interim period and is currently recruiting new staff in sales, both nationally and internationally, in order to accelerate the marketing of the new system also beyond the university sector.

Positive business development

InterCard AG Informationssysteme ended the business year 2021 successfully and once again exhibited a clear margin of profitable growth. Furthermore, the InterCard Group has started the new business year 2022 with a very good order surplus.

The concern’s turnover increased during the business year 2021 from approx. EUR 21 million to approx. EUR 24 million. This is due mainly to the consolidation of our new majority holding IDpendant, which was included for the whole year for the first time.

It is expected that the preliminary concern figures for the business year 2021 will be published on 1.4.2022.

Our university customers are open once more and have thus evidently left the year 2021, which was still negatively affected by the pandemic, largely behind them. In general, installations in our previous core market, the universities, are thus possible once more.

Against this background, as of the end of 2021 InterCard has completely ended the short-time working which was used in the interim as a temporary measure. New staff are currently being recruited nationally and internationally, especially in Sales, in order to accelerate the marketing of the new system also beyond the university sector.
