Prospects

The Group with strategically planned moves creates an ecosystem of added value "all in one solution" and creating a total portfolio of products & services, aiming on the one hand at the continuous expansion of the clientele and in addition to the increase of final revenue per customer.

The significant increase in the 1st quarter is a strong starting point for the continuation and despite the particular and demanding conditions that have been created in the global and Greek economy, it confirms the management's estimate for an increase of +50% in annual revenues compared to 2021 and an EBITDA margin on an annual basis of more than 30%.

The number of active customers of the Group is now more than 105,000, while the successful integration of the new subsidiaries and the operational consolidation of various departments, contribute decisively to the achievement of economies of scale and the improvement of the operating margin.

A significant impact on the Group's results is expected from:

1) the continuity of the implementation of the targeted acquisitions program. It should be noted that the Group has significant liquidity and negative net debt, despite the continuous investments, acquisitions and the recent acquisition of privately-owned facilities at the Group's headquarters.

2) the increase of the annual revenue per customer, due to the new products & services presented

3) the leverage of the RECOVERY FUND's plans for the private sector, such as the action "Digital Transformation of Enterprises" and more specifically the program "Digital Tools for SMEs", which is expected to start in June, with a subsidy rate of 70% and grants of a total budget of €180,000,000.

The Group's management, being the leading Company of Business Software in Greece, continues with consistency the execution of the business plan for 2022 and expects the further development of the customer base, the financial results and the high liquidity to accelerate the Group's momentum and become the driving forces for the beginning of a new growth cycle in Greece and abroad.
