   Business operations 
 
   QPR Software's mission is to make customers agile and efficient in their 
operations. We innovate, develop, and sell software aimed at analyzing, 
monitoring, and modeling operations in organizations. Furthermore, we 
offer customers consulting services related to our software. 
 
 
 
   Outlook for 2021 (unchanged) 
 
   The exceptional circumstances caused by the pandemic continue to have an 
impact on our business, but we are already seeing signs of normalization 
in software purchase decisions. Based on actual sales performance in 
early 2021 and current sales funnel, QPR expects net sales to grow in 
2021 (2020: EUR 8,971 thousand). 
 
   QPR plans to moderately increase its sales, marketing and product 
development costs this year. Despite the planned increase in costs, the 
Company estimates EBITDA and operating result to improve compared to 
2020.

   REPORTING 
 
   QPR Software innovates, develops, sells and delivers software and 
services in international markets aimed at facilitating operational 
development in organizations. QPR Software reports one operating 
segment: Operational development of organizations. In addition to this, 
the Company reports revenue from products and services as follows: 
Software licenses, Renewable software licenses, Software maintenance 
services, SaaS (Software-as-a-service) and Consulting. 
 
   Recurring revenue reported by the Company consists of Saas net sales, 
Renewable software licenses and Software maintenance services. 
 
   Software licenses are sold to customers for perpetual use or for an 
agreed, limited period. Renewable software licenses are sold to 
customers as a user right with an indefinite duration. These contracts 
are automatically renewed at the end of the agreed period, usually one 
year, unless the agreement is terminated within notice period. Renewable 
license revenue is recognized at one point in time, in the beginning of 
the invoicing period. 
 
   Geographical areas reported are Finland, the rest of Europe (including 
Russia and Turkey), and the rest of the world. Net sales are reported 
according to the customer's headquarter location. 
 
   REVIEW BY THE CEO 
 
   The year 2021 had a positive start with an increase in net sales and a 
significant profitability improvement, despite the continuing 
coronavirus pandemic. 
 
   In the past year we have strengthened our process mining business by 
recruiting new sales and development resources. This year we will 
continue this development by building new sales and consulting 
partnerships especially in our European key markets. The new visual 
reporting tool in QPR ProcessAnalyzer software has helped to expand its 
use in customer organizations and further strengthened the 
competitiveness of this product. Furthermore, performance in processing 
large amounts of data has been significantly improved, and the software 
is now available localized in eight languages. Great user experience, 
high performance and excellent service scalability remain our 
priorities. 
 
   To support our process modeling customers in their operations and 
quality systems, we will continue this year the development of a new 
software tool QPR BusinessPortal. With the help of this tool, our 
customers can  communicate their processes and quality documentation to 
their personnel, as well as to get better visibility to their service 
and application portfolios. QPR BusinessPortal is now on a piloting 
phase and will be fully launched to the markets this year. 
 
   The excellent sales development of our performance management software 
QPR Metrics in the Middle East market was continued in February, when 
QPR signed a major agreement with a large central government 
organization to deliver strategy management solution. The value of the 
deal is approximately EUR 1.2 million, and we estimate that almost EUR 1 
million of the deal value will be booked into net sales over the course 
of 2021. Based on this deal, actual sales performance in early 2020 and 
current sales funnel, we expect net sales to grow in 2021. Furthermore, 
profitability is expected to improve, despite the planned moderate 
increase in sales, marketing and product development costs.

   FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE 
 
   January -- March 2021 
 
   The Group's operating result (EBIT) was EUR 286 thousand (45) and 
represented 10% of net sales (2). The increase in operating result was 
mainly due to higher net sales and smaller reseller commissions than in 
the previous year. The share of direct sales in new software sales 
increased significantly from the previous year. Personnel expenses 
increased to EUR 1,772 thousand (1,739) and represented 78% of fixed 
costs.  Outlays in European sales resources, general salary increases as 
well as higher bonus reservations in short-term incentive system 
increased our personnel expenses. On the other hand, expenses were 
lowered by temporary part-time lay-offs in January-March. The Group's 
fixed costs in the reporting period were EUR 2,281 thousand (2,304). 
 
   Result before taxes was EUR 206 thousand (36) and result for the period

0.014 (0.001). 
 
   FINANCE AND INVESTMENTS 
 
   Cash flow from operating activities was EUR 906 thousand (409). Increase 
in cash flow was mainly due to higher net sales and a decrease in 
operative working capital. Cash and cash equivalents at the end of the 
reporting period were EUR 857 thousand (572). 
 
   Net financial expenses were EUR 80 thousand (9) and included a one-off 
guarantee payment related to a closed project. The payment was made in

   Investments totaled EUR 184 thousand (278) and were mainly product 
development expenditure.

financial instruments. At the end of the period, the Group had a 
short-term bank loan of EUR 700 thousand and no long-term 
interest-bearing bank loans. The gearing ratio was 0% (-12). At the end 
of the reporting period, the equity ratio was 41% (51).

capitalized. The amortization of capitalized product development 
expenses was EUR 178 thousand (226). The amortization period for

   EVENTS AFTER THE REVIEW PERIOD 
 
   The Company has no significant events after the review period to report. 
 
 
   SHORT-TERM RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES 
 
   Internal control and risk management at QPR Software aims to ensure that 
the Company operates efficiently and effectively, distributes reliable 
information, complies with regulations and operational principles, 
reaches its strategic goals, reacts to changes in the market and 
operational environment, and ensures the continuity of its business. 
 
   QPR has identified the following three groups of risks related to its 
operations: risks related to business operations (country, customer, 
personnel, legal), risks related to information and products (QPR 
products, IPR, data security) and risks related to financing (foreign 
currency, short-term cash flow). The Company has an insurance policy 
covering property, operational and liability risks. 
 
   Financial risks include reasonable credit risk concerning individual 
business partners, which is characteristic of any international 
business. QPR seeks to limit this credit risk by continuously monitoring 
standard payment terms, receivables and credit limits. 
 
   Approximately 63% of the Group's trade receivables were in euro at the 
end of the quarter (52). At the end of the quarter, the Company had not 
hedged its non-euro trade receivables. 
 
   Risks and risk management practices related to the Company's business 
are further described in the Annual Report 2020, pages 22-24 (

   NOTES TO INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 
 
   ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES 
 
   This report complies with requirements of IAS 34 "Interim Financial 
Reporting". Starting from the beginning of 2021, the Group has applied 
certain new or revised IFRS standards and IFRIC interpretations, as 
described in the Consolidated Financial Statements 2020. The 
implementation of these new and revised requirements has not impacted 
the reported figures. For all other parts, the accounting principles and 
methods are the same as they were in the 2020 financial statements. 
 
   When preparing the consolidated financial statements, management is 
required to make estimates and assumptions regarding the future and to 
consider the appropriate application of accounting principles, which 
means that actual results may differ from those estimated. 
 
   All amounts presented in this report are consolidated figures, unless 
otherwise noted. The amounts presented in the report are rounded, so the 
sum of individual figures may differ from the sum reported. This report 
is unaudited.
