Görlitz, 26.05.2023 | niiio finance group AG (ISIN: DE000A2G8332), software-as-a-service platform for asset and wealth management, published its full report for the financial year 2022 today. According to the report, the niiio group succeeded in significantly strengthening its licensing business last year as planned. The share of recurring revenues from the licensing business in the group’s total revenues increased to around 84% (previous year: 70%), while revenues from project business and other revenues contributed around 16% to total revenues (previous year: 30%). This change is mainly due to the acquisitions of PATRONAS and FIXhub, which mostly receive recurring licence payments. Overall, the group generated consolidated revenues of EUR 7.5 million (previous year: EUR 2.4 million).
At the same time, niiio succeeded in significantly increasing earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA). EBITDA in the financial year 2022 amounted to EUR 0.8 million, which corresponds to an EBITDA margin of 11% (previous year: EUR -0.9 million). This reflects the first positive effects from the acquisitions that have been made. The revenue development was thus at the lower end of the forecast, whereas the EBITDA development was more positive than expected due to lower costs and higher capitalisation of internal investments in the software platforms of the corporate group.
niiio was able to continue its momentum in the current financial year 2023. On the basis of unaudited figures before consolidation, the revenue in the first quarter of 2023 within the niiio Group amounted to around EUR 2 million (previous year: around EUR 1.8 million (pro forma)). In particular, niiio succeeded in generating a positive EBITDA of around EUR 0.35 million, which is approximately 40% of the full year 2022. This is due to both positive revenue and cost effects resulting from the conclusion of contracts and cost measures in 2022.
Johann Horch, CEO of niiio finance group AG: „2022 was a successful financial year for us. We were able to notably increase our revenue, significantly increased the share of recurring revenue and generated a positive EBITDA. The developments of the first quarter make us very confident that we will be able to continue on this course in 2023. Due to the continuing major uncertainties about the further development of the geopolitical, global economic and financial situation, we do not consider a forecast for the 2023 financial year to be meaningful. After the end of the 1st half of the year, a reassessment of this forecast will be made. With the results achieved so far in 2022 and Q1 2023, we nevertheless believe niiio is on track overall, both strategically and operationally, to become a leading European SaaS platform for asset and wealth management solutions in the long term.“
