Ørn Software is a leading Nordic Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company, supporting a wide range of industries with value creation through a comprehensive suite of best-of-breed worksite management software. At the end of Q1 2022, Ørn Software had NOK 237.9 millionin annual recurring revenue (ARR), a growth of 91.7 percent compared to Q1 2021.

Ørn Software had revenues of NOK 65.1 millionin the first quarter 2022, a growth of 109 percent compared to the same period in 2021, and an adjusted EBITDA margin of 29.4 percent, slightly up compared to the same period in 2022. "Our key priorities for 2022 are to accelerate revenue growth and improve profitability. During the first quarter we landed several landmark contracts, and we have at the same time successfully optimized our prices while managing churn well," said CEO of Ørn Software Sten-Roger Karlsen. While Ørn Software has undertaken a range of acquisitions during 2020 and 2021, focus is now on realizing synergies. "We have now finalized our plan to further realize revenue and cost synergies during the rest of 2022 and onwards. Execution is already ongoing, which means that we are well on track to improve our adjusted EBITDA margin from 29 percent in 2021 to our target of 32-34 percent EBITDA margin for 2022 as a whole, and that we expect to be cash positive for 2022, adjusted for any special items," said CEO of Ørn Software Sten-Roger Karlsen. Ørn Software reiterates the company's 2022 guidance: * Revenue: Around NOK 270 million(194 million in 2021) * Adjusted EBITDA margin: 32-34 percent (24 percent in 2021) * CAPEX: Around 16 percent of revenue (17 percent in 2021) * Positive full-year cash flow after payment of interest (before adjustment for any special items) "2022 will be a pivotal year for Ørn Software, bringing us up to a whole new level organizationally, technologically, and financially. Our platform is strong, and I have never been more confident in our growth model and our ability to create value for our customers. Hence, our 2025 target of growing our ARR organically to NOK 430 millionwhile achieving an EBITDA margin above 45 percent stands firm," said Sten-Roger Karlsen. Ørn Software's reported Net result in Q1 2022 was negative with 1.34 million (-8.39 million in Q1 2021). This was affected positively by the significantly increased revenue and EBITDA profit, curbed by increased depreciations and amortizations, primarily driven by acquisitions and higher investments in product and technology.
