Announcement no. 2 2022
Copenhagen – 25 February 2022 – Agillic A/S (Nasdaq First North Growth Market Denmark: AGILC) releases its financial results for Q4 2021 and annual report 2021.
Emre Gürsoy, CEO of Agillic comments:
”When we presented the Agillic Reboot 2.1 Strategy in January 2021 we made three financial promises; double-digit growth in ARR, a positive EBITDA, and a positive cash flow from operations. 12 months later I am proud to see that we already have fulfilled the first two and are well on our way in achieving the last. We have achieved a positive EBITDA for the second year in a row, a top of the guidance-range total ARR of DKK 55.7 million, representing a growth of 20% from 2020, and an all-time high number of clients of 97 end of 2021. A solid cash position of DKK 20.6 million ensures that no further financing is needed in the next period.
During 2021 we have made great progress in our internationalisation, we have won new clients and formed new partnerships, and we have added new strategic competence in sales, C-level management, and Board of Directors. All in all, we have all the prerequisites to do great things in 2022 and beyond.”
