AGM Trading Update

 

GetBusy plc ("GetBusy" or the "Group") (AIM: GETB), a leading provider of productivity software for professional and financial services, provides an update on trading ahead of today's Annual General Meeting.

 

The Board is pleased to confirm continued strong trading momentum in the first four months of 2022.   ARR at constant currency has grown by 19% year-on-year, reaching £17.0m at 30 April 2022. This has been driven by buoyant customer demand across the Group's established brands, the continued benefit from monetisation initiatives and healthy net revenue retention levels. 

 

The integration of the technologies acquired last year is progressing to plan and we are making encouraging headway building out the customer acquisition and operational models for the Group's emerging products, Workiro and Certified Vault. Net cash remains solid, underpinned by the Group's undrawn £2m debt facility.

 

The Board reaffirms its expectations* for 2022 with a very high level of confidence.

 

Daniel Rabie, CEO, commented:

 

"We are pleased to report that the significant groundwork we laid last year in supporting our ambition to at least double the business over five years is bearing fruit, with an acceleration of ARR, up 19% year-on-year. This provides the Group with enhanced revenue visibility and the resources to continue to invest in its expanding capabilities.  

 

"GetBusy has an enviable mix of established productivity products with strong track records and prospects that underpin our growth, complemented by innovative emerging offerings that carry the potential to significantly enhance growth in the future.

 

"Sizeable, under-penetrated markets and compelling macro trends, including digital transformation, cyber security, privacy legislation and hybrid working are driving more and more organisations to seek technology solutions, such as ours, to help them work better and smarter, providing us with significant growth opportunities. The Group's broadening capabilities, growing traction in new markets and continued double-digit growth in high quality recurring revenues gives the Board confidence in delivering on our ambition and generating long-term value for all shareholders."

 

* Expectations, as outlined within the 2021 results issued on 1 March 2022, are:

·      group revenue of not less than £17.0m

·      adjusted EBITDA approaching break-even
