Outlook for 2024:

Revenue for 2024 is estimated to be EUR 120–140 million and adjusted EBITA EUR 7.5–10.5 million.

CEO Tomi Pienimäki:

The first quarter of this year was challenging as expected for Siili due to the tightening of the market conditions last year. The Group's revenue in January–March amounted to just under EUR 30 million, declining from a strong comparison period by a good 10%. The decline in revenue was also accentuated by a slightly lower number of working days compared to last year. Adjusted EBITA for the reporting period was EUR 1.6 million, or 5.3% of revenue. Due to the reduced revenue, profitability also came in weaker than in the comparison period, as expected.

As the market conditions and price competition remained tight, we also continued our actions to improve the efficiency of operations. Recruitment has been moderate, responding to customer demand. In addition, we streamlined the reporting structure of the Finnish unit. This is a step on our way towards even stronger business units focusing on the customer-facing business. In the prevailing situation, we zeroed in on strengthening our competitiveness and building competitive advantages.

Experience has shown that, when the market is quieter, the groundwork is laid for success once the market picks up. We believe that the effect of the efficiency-improving measures launched last year, which are still ongoing, will be fully reflected in our competitivemess and profitability when the market situation starts improving.

Despite the challenging market conditions, the first quarter also saw many successes. AI-assisted development offers an abundance of new opportunities for both our clients and employees, Therefore, we started a three-level AI training programme for our consultants in January. By the end of March, 51% of Siili’s employees in Finland had achieved the first-level certification, and the training continues throughout the year.

In addition to our own initiatives, we also got the opportunity to work with our clients on several digital services utilising artificial intelligence. Among other things, building on OpenAI technologies, we developed a menopause coach called Vera for the Dutch company Vi, and our AI-assisted radio show based on the Viki and Köpi talk show was awarded a honorary mention in the Grand One digital media competition. Furthermore, we won several AI tenders in the public sector, including one for the Päijät-Häme wellbeing county in Finland.

The current market sentiment appears contradictory: activity with our clients has increased but simultaneously the general economic situation continues to cause uncertainty. In the long term, we expect the demand for digital development services to stay strong. We will continue to maintain our flexible and efficient way of operation, while strengthening our expertise particularly in terms of artificial intelligence. This allows us to best support both our clients and personnel.

We are living in the midst of a very interesting technological paradigm shift, and I would like to extend my thanks to the Siili employees and our customers for their curious and unprejudiced mindset in the face of new opportunities.
