Emre Gürsoy, CEO of Agillic comments
”We continued to see satisfactory growth in Q3 2022, resulting in a strong Total ARR of DKK 69.9 million, equivalent to a 36%-increase YoY. The positive development in ARR from Transactions continued throughout Q3 2022 and increased 169% YoY, whilst ARR from Subscriptions increased 14% YoY. Our focus on internationalisation of our client portfolio has delivered promising results, and 44% of the clients won so far this year were from international markets.
Our Total Revenue increased 19% YoY and despite increasing cost prices, our operational optimisation efforts have resulted in an improved EBITDA of DKK 1.4 million in Q3 2022, which is an increase of DKK 0.8 million compared to Q3 2021.
The Cash position at the end of Q3 2022 was DKK 1.9 million and in line with our expectations. As announced in H1 2022, the repayment of two loans in Q3 2022 of DKK 2.5 million has been completed, and we have continued the planned investments in our platform totalling DKK 3.3 million. Cash flow from operations is negative due to the seasonality of contract renewals, while Q4 2022 will be positive and fully aligned with our Reboot 2.1 strategy of positive cash flow from operation at year end.
Timely focus on adapting to volatile market conditions and continuous customer focus are the two main reasons why we raised our financial guidance for 2022 on 12 October 2022. With our new guidance, we expect to achieve an increase in Total Revenue of 16%-23% relative to our 2021 results, Total ARR is expected to increase 22%- 36%, and EBITDA is expected to be positive between DKK 0 and 3 million.
I am pleased to see the dedication and huge efforts from our employees, which has contributed to the positive developments. Going forward, we remain fully committed to improving our operational performance and investing further in our platform while focusing on international business growth via strong partnerships.
Our three main strategic financial goals for 2023 remain double-digit percentage growth in ARR subscriptions, positive cash flow from operations, and a positive EBITDA.”
1. Cash is defined as available funds less bank overdraft withdrawals.
2. ARR, i.e., the annualised value of subscription agreements and transactions at the end of the actual reporting period.

5. Months to recover CAC, i.e., the period in months it takes to generate sufficient gross profit from a client to cover the acquisition cost.
