Comptel’s net sales are estimated to grow from the previous year in 2013.

Characteristically a significant part of Comptel’s operating profit and net sales is generated in the second half of the year.

The full year financial information in this stock exchange release is based on the company’s audited financial statements. The auditor's report was issued on 12 February 2013.

Juhani Hintikka, President and CEO: ”The fourth quarter was the best for 2012 in terms of net sales and operating profit. We secured two orders of utmost importance. One was a fulfillment deal and the other an advanced analytics sale. Robi Axiata, a communications service provider in Bangladesh, automates its customer interaction and boosts the efficiency of its business operations by deploying Comptel Social Links analytics solution. The order was the largest analytics sale in Comptel’s history. Comptel has currently 15 Social Links customers.We continued our strategy execution according to our plans in 2012. Our net sales growth was stronger than the market’s. During the latter part of the year we centralised our sales in a global organisation with the aim at increasing the efficiency of our sales. Fulfillment and advanced analytics were the key investment areas in our R&D. The cost saving program initiated in June aiming at savings of approximately EUR 10 million annually proceeded according to our targets. We improved our profitability significantly during the second half of the year.

The performance metrics of our services organisation have improved significantly as a result of the program. The savings measures taken and the positive development in the services organisation give us a good starting point to increase our profitability in 2013. Consequently, improving our profitability is the most important target of 2013.

During the year we got 13 new customers. We secured 15 significant orders, valued over EUR 500,000.” Business Review In the fourth quarter, Comptel’s net sales decreased from the previous year and were EUR 21.9 million (23.3). Net sales decreased as a result of lower than expected license sales in December. Full year net sales increased by 7.4 per cent compared to the previous year and were EUR 82.4 million (76.8). High services sales contributed to increase in net sales.

In the fourth quarter, operating profit decreased to EUR 1.8 million (2.7), representing 8.2 per cent (11.5) of net sales. Profitability was impacted by lower license sales. Full year operating result was EUR -13.5 million (11.9), which amounts to -16.4 per cent (15.5) of net sales. The negative operating result was mainly due to the goodwill impairment loss of EUR 10.2 million booked during the first quarter. Additionally, measures taken to improve efficiency as well as restructuring of business operations affected the operating result by EUR 2.5 million. Full year operating result excluding these one-off items was EUR -0.8 million (3.1), equalling to -1.0 per cent (4.0) of net sales. The operating result excluding one-off items was weakened by increased personnel expenses, costs relating to project delivery and marketing as well as low licenses sales. However, profitability improved significantly during the second half of the year as a result of the costs savings program initiated. The aim is to achieve savings of approximately EUR 10 million annually.

In 2012, net financial items were EUR -0.7 million (-0.8). Result before taxes was EUR -14.0 million (11.0), which corresponds to -16.9 per cent (14.3) of net sales. Net profit was EUR -12.8 million (7.6). Earnings per share for the financial year were EUR -0.12 (0.07).

Tax expense for the financial year was EUR -1.2 million (3.4). Comptel booked a deferred tax asset of EUR 3.5 million due to the losses incurred in 2012. The tax expense included EUR 1.7 million (1.2) of withholding taxes due to double taxation. The cumulative amount of outstanding, non-credited and expensed double withholding taxes payment since 2004 is EUR 9.2 million.

The Group’s order backlog grew slightly from the previous year and was EUR 48.4 million (47.2) at the end of the financial year. Maintenance agreements represented EUR 27.2 million (24.9) and other order backlog EUR 21.2 million (22.3) of the total.

Comptel has restated retrospectivelythe cost figures for 2010 and 2011. The correction lowered the option costs EUR 0.2 million in 2010 and EUR 0.3 million in 2011. Prior period reported financials have been corrected accordingly. The changes are described in detail in note 12 in the table part.

During the period under review, Comptel Corporation acquired Xtract Oy, a software company specialising in analytics, for a total consideration of EUR 3.1 million (enterprise value). By combining the leading analytics capabilities with its existing software, Comptel will create an offering which will enable operators to react quickly to events from the network and transform them automatically into relevant and timely actions that improve customer experience. Xtract Group was consolidated into Comptel Group financials as of 10 February 2012. The acquisition was financed through Comptel Corporation's liquid assets.

The share subscription period of 2006 share options A expired on 30 November 2010, share options B on 30 November 2011 and share options C on 30 November 2012. During the subscription period no shares were subscribed.

The total number of share options issued is 4,200,000. Of the share options, 1,400,000 are marked with the symbol A, 1,400,000 are marked with the symbol B and 1,400,000 are marked with the symbol C. The share options may be exercised to subscribe to a maximum of 4,200,000 new shares in the company or existing shares held by the company. The issued share options can be exchanged for shares constituting a maximum total of 3.8 per cent of the company's shares and votes of the shares, after the potential share subscription, if new shares are issued in the share subscription.

The share subscription price will be based on the prevailing market price of the Comptel share on the NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Ltd in April 2009, April 2010 and April 2011. The current share subscription price for Comptel share option 2009A is EUR 0.43 per share, which corresponds to the trade volume weighted average quotation of the share on the NASDAQ OMX Helsinki during 1 April - 30 April 2009 deducted by the dividends and capital repayment paid. The current share subscription price for Comptel share option 2009B is EUR 0.70 per share, which corresponds to the trade volume weighted average quotation of the share on the NASDAQ OMX Helsinki during 1 April - 30 April 2010 deducted by the dividends and capital repayment paid.

The President and CEO has a share-based incentive plan. The aim of the plan is to combine the objectives of the shareholders and the CEO of Comptel Corporation in order to increase the value of the company and to commit the CEO to the company. The prerequisite for participation in the plan and receipt of reward from the performance periods is that the CEO owns company’s shares or acquires them up to the number predetermined by the Board of Directors which is 230,000 shares. The ownership requirement is valid until 31 December 2015.

Furthermore, the potential reward from the plan is tied to the validity of the CEO’s employment contract.

The Board of Directors of Comptel Corporation approved in February 2012 a new share-based incentive plan for the Group key personnel.

The aim of the new plan is to combine the objectives of the shareholders and the target people in order to increase the value of the company, to commit the target people to the company, and to offer them a competitive reward plan based on long-term shareholding in the company.

The new plan includes a Matching Share Plan 2012 and Stock Options 2012, approved by the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders of the company in March 2012.

The Matching Share Plan includes two performance periods, both beginning on 2 May 2012. The performance periods will end on 2 May 2015 and on 2 May 2016. The prerequisite for participation in the plan and receipt of reward for the performance periods provides that a target person owns the company’s shares or acquires them up to the number predetermined by the Board of Directors.

Furthermore, the potential reward from the plan is tied to the validity of the target person’s employment or service or contractual relation. No reward will generally be paid if a target person’s employment or service ends before the reward payment.

Rewards from the Plan will be paid partly in the company’s shares and partly in cash in 2015 and in 2016. The cash proportion is intended to cover taxes and tax-related costs arising from the reward to a target person. The total amount of rewards to be paid on the basis of the Plan is an approximate maximum of 1,050,000 Comptel Corporation shares and a cash payment corresponding to the value of the shares, multiplied by 1.5, in the maximum.

There were 35 persons in the plan at the end of 2012.

The company held 161,219 of its own shares at the end of the financial year, which is 0.15 per cent of the total number of its shares. The total counter-book value of the shares held by the company was EUR 3,224.

The Annual General Meeting (AGM), held on 26 March 2012, approved the proposal of Board of Directors that a dividend of EUR 0.03 per share be paid for 2011.

The AGM authorised the Board of Directors to decide on share issues amounting to a maximum of 21,400,000 new shares and on repurchase of the company's own shares up to a maximum number of 10,700,000 shares. The authorisations are valid until 30 June 2013. However, the authorisations pertaining to the share-based incentive schemes are valid five years from the date of AGM.

Corporate Governance The Annual General Meeting, held on 26 March 2012, elected the following members to the Board of Directors: Mr Pertti Ervi, Mr Hannu Vaajoensuu, Mr Petteri Walldén, Mrs Eriikka Söderström and Mr Antti Vasara. In its meeting held after the AGM, the Board of Directors elected Mr Pertti Ervi as chairman and Mr Hannu Vaajoensuu as vice chairman. The Board did not set up any committees in its first meeting.

The Annual General Meeting appointed Ernst & Young Oy as the company’s auditor.

In April, Comptel Corporation and Cisco Systems Inc. settled the dispute under arbitration concerning Comptel’s use of a certain sub-set of Axioss software that was sold to Cisco and simultaneously licensed back to Comptel for use in the current release of Comptel Fulfillment. Cisco brought the matter to the London Court of International Arbitration in December 2011. In accordance with the settlement, the parties have agreed to withdraw all their claims against each other and the arbitration process has thereby been terminated. It has been agreed that no financial compensation will be paid between the parties. Comptel will continue in the fulfillment business and will, consistent with the terms of Cisco’s license back to Comptel, support its existing Axioss and Comptel Fulfillment customers.

Near-term Risks and Uncertainties Comptel develops dynamic end-to-end solutions for leading operators globally in the telecom field. This requires Comptel to understand correctly the trends taking place in its business environment and the needs of its customers and resellers by each region. Failure to identify market conditions, address customers’ needs and develop its products in a timely way may significantly undermine the growth of Comptel’s business and its profitability.

Characteristics to Comptel’s field of industry are significant quarterly variations of net sales and profit, which are related to customers’ purchasing behaviour and the timing of major single deals.

Comptel's business consists of deliveries of large productised IT system and the value of a single project may be several million euros. Therefore, the risk or credit risk associated with a single project or an individual customer may be significant. Furthermore, some of Comptel's customers operate in countries that are or have been war zone which in part may increase credit risk.

Comptel operates globally so it is exposed to risks arising from different currency positions. Exchange rate changes between the Euro, which is the company’s reporting currency, and the US Dollar, UK Pound Sterling and Malaysian Ringgit affect the company’s net sales, expenses and net profit.

The application process to prevent Comptel’s double taxation is still pending with the Ministry of Finance in Finland. However, the process between the states is very slow and the timing of a change is hard to forecast. The interpretation of tax treaties may result in different views between the countries in questions. This could mean that the double taxation will prevail.

The risks and uncertainties of Comptel are described more in detail in the company’s financial statements and the Board of Directors’ report for 2012.

Events after the Reporting Period There were no significant events after the reporting period.

Outlook Comptel’s net sales are estimated to grow from the previous year in 2013.

Operating profit is estimated to increase to 5 - 10 per cent of net sales.

Characteristically a significant part of Comptel’s operating profit and net sales is generated in the second half of the year.

Board of Directors' Proposal for the Disposal of Profits The Group parent company’s distributable equity on 31 December 2012 was EUR 1,840,001.68 (15,026,574.95).

The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting that no dividend payment will be made for 2012.

TABLE PART The full year financial information in this stock exchange release is based on the company’s audited financial statements. The auditor’s report was issued on 12 February 2013. The release has been prepared in accordance with IAS 34, Interim Financial Reporting, as adopted by the EU.

In fourth quarter of 2012 Comptel decided to discontinue applying hedge accounting as defined in IAS 39. Other changes in accounting principles and methods of calculation are described in note 1.

Comptel has adopted IAS 8 to correct errors discovered in the figures for the reporting periods 2010, 2011 and Q1/2012. The nature of the error is described in note 12.

All figures in the financial report have been rounded and consequently the sum of the individual figures can deviate from the sum figure.

3. Business combinations On 9 February 2012, Comptel Corporation acquired all shares of Xtract Oy, a Finnish software company specialising in analytics.

By acquiring Xtract the company creates a unique offering by combining world class analytics capabilities with its existing assets. This offering enables operators to react quickly to events from the network and transform them automatically into relevant and timely actions that improve the customer experience.

The total consideration (enterprise value) was EUR 3,100 thousand. The actual purchase price EUR 2,075 thousand was paid in cash.

The goodwill according to IFRS 3 is EUR 1,993 thousand after the fair value allocations reflected in net assets. EUR 215 thousand was recognised in intangible assets which are amortised over five years.

The goodwill is attributable to the skilled workforce of Xtract and the utilisation potential of Comptel’s existing sales channel to promote Xtract products.

The values of the assets and liabilities arising from the acquisition were as follows: EUR 1,000 Recognised fair values on acquisition -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Technology (incl. in other intangible 840 assets) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Other intangible assets 1 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Machinery and equipment 6 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Trade receivables and other receivables 842 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cash and cash equivalents 263 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total assets 1,952 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Deferred tax liabilities 53 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Other non-interest bearing liabilities 597 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Interest bearing liabilities 1,220 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total liabilities 1,870 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Net assets 82 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Acquisition cost 2,075 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Goodwill 1,993 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Purchase price paid in cash 2,075 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cash and cash equivalents in acquired -263 subsidiary -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total net cash outflow on the acquisition 1,812 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Comptel has expensed acquisition-related consultation fees of EUR 145 thousand.

The fees are included in other operating expenses.

Xtract’s net sales EUR 1,145 thousand and loss EUR 1,523 thousand for the period 10 February to 31 December 2012 are included in the comprehensive statement of income. Comptel Group net sales for 1 January – 31 December 2012 would have been EUR 82,793 thousand and loss EUR 13,457 thousand if Xtract had been consolidated from the beginning of the year 2012.

4. Impairment loss on goodwill Comptel changed the allocation method of goodwill during the first quarter of the year. Due to the change, an impairment testing was carried out on new cash generating unit level. Previously, it had not been possible to allocate goodwill specifically to any segment or cash generating unit. As a result of impairment testing Comptel recorded an impairment loss of EUR 10,179 thousand in the first quarter result.

In the test, the recoverable amount of goodwill is determined based on value in use calculation. The value in use is computed based on discounted forecast cash flows. The cash flow forecasts rely on the plans approved by the Board of Directors and management concerning in particular profitability and the growth rate of net sales. The plans cover a five-year period taking into account the recent development of business. The used pre-tax discount rate is 16.4%.

The cash flows after the five-year period have been forecast by estimating the future growth rate of net sales to be 0%.

The use of the testing model requires making estimates and assumptions concerning investments, market growth and general interest rate level.

5. Income tax Income tax according to the statement of comprehensive income for the period was EUR 1,152 thousand positive (EUR 3,373 thousand negative in 2011) as a change of EUR 2,494 thousand in deferred tax liabilities was booked in connection with the impairment of goodwill. Comptel booked a deferred tax asset of EUR 3,487 million due to the losses incurred in 2012.

In 2006, Adjustment of the Tax Office for Major Corporations refused to accept the crediting of taxes withheld at source in taxation of 2004 and 2005.

The application process to prevent Comptel’s double taxation is still pending with the Ministry of Finance in Finland. However, the process between the states is very slow and the timing of a change is hard to forecast. The interpretation of tax treaties may result in different views between the countries in questions. This could mean that the double taxation will prevail.

According to the Board of Adjustment’s decision currently in force, Comptel Corporation has expensed taxes withheld at source amounting to EUR 1,680 thousand in January - December (EUR 1,189 thousand).
