Vienna, May 27, 2022
In 2022, the ongoing political tensions in the Eastern European region
intensified as a result of the situation in Ukraine, which negatively
affected the commodity and financial markets and increased volatility,
especially in the case of exchange rates. The RUB/EUR exchange rate as of
the reporting date March 31, 2022, jumped by 11.4% to RUB 93.7 per euro,
compared to December 31, 2021. Likewise, compared to Q1 2021, the average
exchange rate for Q1 2022 increased by 7.5%.

Revenue increased by 37.9% to EUR 62.4 million in the reporting period
from EUR 45.2 million in the first three months of 2021. This was made
possible by the recovery of the global economy and the Russian economy
following the COVID-19-related recession, the gradual lifting of the OPEC+
restrictions and more successful contracting by the Group itself.
Converted into RUB, the Group’s main operating currency, revenue grew by
48.4%.

The Well Stimulation segment showed a particularly positive development in
the reporting period. The number of jobs performed in Q1 2022 increased by
54.8% to 1,187 (Q1 2021: 767). As a result, revenue for the Well
Stimulation segment increased by 61.3% to EUR 29.2 million (Q1 2021: EUR
18.1 million). Due to the positive market environment, the management was
also able to improve performance in the Drilling, Sidetracking, and IPM
segment. Revenue in this segment increased by 22.9% to EUR 31.1 million,
driven by a 75.0% growth in the number of jobs to 84 (Q1 2021: 48 jobs).

Growth in operating expenses was slower than revenue growth due to factors
such as economies of scale and ongoing cost control. This led to a
multiple growth in gross profit, which reached EUR 7.4 million in the
reporting period (Q1 2021: EUR 1.5 million). Accordingly, the gross profit
margin rose to 11.9% (Q1 2021: 3.3%).

Due to higher consulting fees related to the ongoing political and
economic tensions, the Group recorded a 25.7% increase in administrative
expenses.

On balance, the Group closed Q1 2022 with a positive EBIT of EUR 1.1
million (Q1 2021: EUR –3.3 million).

Given the high degree of uncertainty regarding the development of
macroeconomic factors and political risks as well as their potential
impact on the Russian economy and the Group’s performance, the management
has identified indications of impairment related to the Group’s operating
companies in Russia. Therefore, the Group performed a preliminary
calculation of a potential impairment loss based on substantial inflation,
an increase of the key interest rate in Russia, uncertainty regarding the
development of the Russian ruble, and a continuation of import
substitution. As of March 31, 2022, no impairment loss was charged.

Taking into account available measures, existing financial resources, and
the Group’s ability to generate positive cash flows from operating
activities, the management considers that the Company has sufficient
financial stability to continue its operational activity for at least the
next twelve months from the reporting date, even if the economic
environment were to deteriorate significantly. Accordingly, the management
has concluded that there is no material uncertainty regarding the Group’s
ability to continue as a going concern.
