Announcement no. 16 2021


Copenhagen – 22 October 2021 - Agillic A/S (Nasdaq First North Growth Market Denmark: AGILC) releases its financial results for Q3 2021. In full alignment with Agillic’s Reboot 2.1 strategy, Q3 results show 16% increase in Total ARR and positive EBITDA.

Emre Gürsoy, CEO of Agillic comments:
”I am pleased to see that we are continuing our growth in Q3, and it is the fourth quarter in a row, in which ARR subscriptions grow, highlighting the strengths of our Reboot 2.1 strategy. Year on year total ARR increased by 16% and subscriptions increased by 10% compared to Q3 2020, due to the wins of new clients and uplifting existing ones. As of Q3 2021, our year-to-date revenue amounted to DKK 39.0 million, an increase of 12 % compared to Q3 2020, and total annual recurring revenue (ARR) to DKK 51.3 million. I am also pleased to see that the year-to-date EBITDA of DKK 3.2 million is the highest since the IPO. We maintain our financial guidance as we expect to increase investments and the cost base in Q4. With the capital raise in January 2021, we have a strong cash position to continue our strategic growth and internationalisation plans. Consequently, there are currently no plans regarding capital increases and funding. Our three main financial goals towards 2023 remain; Double-digit percentage growth rate in ARR subscriptions, positive cash flow from operations, and a positive EBITDA.”
