CEO’s comments
Strong Year-end
In the CEO’s comments for the third quarter, I wrote that the Addnode Group
could do better, which we have now shown. The market and our customers acted
somewhat cautiously for most of 2013. This had an impact on us, particularly
during the second and third quarters. In the fourth quarter, things improved
slightly and we delivered a strong quarter due to a better market and excellent
performance in our units. In addition, the acquisitions we implemented performed
positively.
Year-on-year growth in the fourth quarter was 10 percent and the adjusted EBITA
margin amounted to 13.3 percent (13.5).
Increase in recurring revenue
The Addnode Group’s strategy to increase the proportion of recurring revenue and
delivering more of our proprietary products, SaaS solutions and packaged
services, to our customers continued to generate results. Compared with 2012,
recurring revenue from support and maintenance (including SaaS) increased SEK
107 M to SEK 634 M in 2013. The acquisition of Joint Collaboration in the third
quarter, with SaaS rental solutions for projects and collaboration, is another
example of how we are implementing this strategy.
Good start to 2014
The Addnode Group has strong positions in several niched areas with growth
potential. We are the leading supplier of IT solutions for design, project
management and product lifecycle management in the Nordic region. We have strong
offerings for the public sector in municipal administration, case management, e
-archives and we have overall industrial offerings in digital communication and
customer-service solutions.
The healthy fourth quarter also gave us a boost as we enter 2014. Many of the
transactions sold at the end of the year are projects that will be delivered
during the first and second quarters of 2014.
We have demonstrated that the Addnode Group is capable of growing with
profitability and we look forward to 2014.  With a strong balance sheet and
healthy cash flows, we have significant latitude to develop our offerings, both
organically and through acquisitions.
