q.beyond confirms its preliminary results: revenue up 8% in Q3 2022

Cologne, November 7, 2022. As reported on October 26, in a quarter marked by great economic uncertainty, q.beyond further increased its revenue by 8% to EUR 43.1 million. The IT service provider has benefited here from its business model, much of which is crisis-proof. Of total third-quarter 2022 revenue, 78% was recurring, while 60% was generated across the company’s three focus areas of retail, logistics and manufacturing.

The SAP business is poised to return to profitable growth

q.beyond has a strong market position, especially in its cloud business, and continues to expand its lead. In recent quarters, the company has, among other things, extended its hybrid cloud expertise and, to this end, has created a proprietary Cloud Competence Center with around 150 experts. It is for this reason in particular that the revenues of the “Cloud & IoT” segment increased by 18% year-on-year to reach 35.3 million euros during the last quarter. After realignment, the second segment, “SAP”, will also return to profitable growth in the coming year. In the third quarter of 2022, revenues here amounted to 7.9 million euros compared to 10.0 million euros the previous year.

Net liquidity of € 42.5 million

Based on revenue of €43.1 million, EBITDA amounted to €1.7 million in the third quarter of 2022 while free cash flow stood at -€1.7 million. The prior year figures of EUR 29.4 million for EBITDA and EUR 3.6 million for free cash flow were strongly influenced by the successful sale of the colocation business during of this quarter. With net cash of 42.5 million euros and virtually no debt, the company is also very well funded for a more prolonged economic downturn.

For the current financial year, the company has forecast revenue of between 174 and 178 million euros, EBITDA of between 6 and 8 million euros and free cash flow of up to -10 million. euros. Like the previous year, he expects a strong fourth quarter. Along with growing organic business, revenue will also benefit for the first time from the recently acquired majority stake in productive-data. This Hamburg-based data analytics specialist focuses on introducing, improving and operating data warehousing solutions in industries such as retail. This will further increase the value created within q.beyond’s cloud business.
