Announcement no. 7 2022
Copenhagen – 5 May 2022 – Agillic A/S (Nasdaq First North Growth Market Denmark: AGILC) releases its financial results for Q1 2022 and maintains its financial guidance. The Q1 results show a 26% increase in Total ARR. ARR from subscriptions increased with DKK 2,8 million in Q1 2022 compared to DKK 1,7 million in Q1 2021, an improvement of 65%.
Emre Gürsoy, CEO of Agillic comments:
“In Q1 2022, we have achieved our highest total ARR performance with a result of DKK 58.8 million. The strong development in our internationalisation activities has shown a positive effect, with a total ARR YoY growth of 26%. Even though general market conditions are still not settled, we also see signs of positive market developments, including our platform’s utilisation by our clients with a 145% YoY transactional ARR increase. We continue to focus on ARR growth by building international partnerships and our investments in the sales organisation in 2021 along with the most recent employment of our new Chief Client Officer.
We have completed Q1 with a 11% YoY revenue growth and a negative EBITDA. Costs in Q1 2022 have been impacted by the general price increases worldwide, and Agillic has also experienced a fair share of these changes. While we continue investing on our strategic initiatives, we also work to adapt to these price increases through operational cost optimisations.
Therefore, as we move towards 2023, we remain focused on our Reboot 2.1 goals with double-digit percentage growth rate in ARR subscriptions, a positive cash flow from operations, and a positive EBITDA.”
