Vectron Systems AG: acardo provides positive result for Vectron
EQS-News: Vectron Systems AG / Key word(s): Quarter Results
Münster, 03 May 2023: Vectron Systems AG (Vectron), a leading provider of intelligent POS systems and cloud services, with a focus on the catering and bakery sectors, has determined the preliminary figures for the first quarter according to IFRS accounting. The result was significantly influenced by the acquisition of acardo group AG and acardo activation GmbH (together acardo), which have been fully consolidated since 01 January 2023. The comparative figures for the previous year therefore do not include acardo.
Consolidated turnover rose by 34 percent to EUR 8.8 million (previous year: EUR 6.6 million) in the first three months of the 2023 financial year. At the same time, operating profit (EBITDA) climbed from EUR 0.1 million to EUR 0.5 million.
The positive EBITDA was mainly determined by the subsidiary acardo. While the result in Vectron's core business was still negative at EUR -0.2 million, as planned, acardo achieved a profit (EBITDA) of EUR 0.7 million.
Despite the slightly negative result in Vectron's core business, there is still a positive trend in recurring sales. Here, compared to the previous year, in addition to monthly recurring sales, products for which licences have to be renewed in other periods, such as semi-annually or annually, are now also reported. Thus, total recurring revenue increased by 20 per cent to EUR 2.9 million compared to the 1st quarter of the previous year (previous year: EUR 2.4 million).
"With the figures presented, we see ourselves well on the way to achieving the planned EBITDA of between EUR 1.3 million and EUR 2.2 million in the Group this year. The cost optimisations in the POS business and the positive effects of the acardo acquisition will be reflected positively in the coming quarters", explains Thomas Stümmler, CEO of Vectron Systems AG.
