Netcompany publishes Interim report for the six months ended 30 June 2020

In Q2 2020, Netcompany has continued to grow revenue as planned, increasing margins and welcoming no less than 230 new employees.

In Q2 2020, Netcompany realised reported revenue of DKK 675.5m, of which DKK 654.5m was organic. In constant currencies growth was 15.1% of which 13.7% was organic.

Adjusted EBITA grew by 27.9% to DKK 161.3m compared to DKK 126.1m in Q2 2019, corresponding to an adjusted EBITA margin of 23.9%.

The average number of full-time employees grew by 404 from 2,259 in Q2 2019 to 2.663 in Q2 2020. Part of the increase was related to the acquisition of Netcompany Netherlands, which affected the average FTEs in Q2 2020 by 98 compared to 47 in Q2 2019.

Free cash flow remained strong and added another DKK 103m to the cash position bringing the total amount of cash and cash equivalents above DKK 300m which was more than double the amount compared to the end of Q2 2019.

Netcompany expects to pay out dividend of between DKK 50 - 100m for the full year 2020.

By the start of July 2020, revenue visibility increased by 18% to DKK 2,483.6m compared to DKK 2,105.5m at the beginning of July 2019, of which DKK 1,371.1m reflects realised revenue in the first half of 2020.

For 2020, Netcompany maintains its expectations to organic revenue growth in constant currencies to be around 18% -20% and the expectations to non-organic revenue growth to be around 1%. Netcompany still expects Group adjusted EBITA margin in constant currencies to be around 26%.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we underline that our assumptions behind our guidance are significantly more uncertain than normal.  

During these unprecedented times, we continued to follow our initial growth plans for the year and realised more than 15% growth for the Group in the second quarter of 2020, accompanied by strong cash flow and increasing margins.

During Q2, we have delivered a number of large projects, most notably the social pension solution in Denmark. We continue to bid for – and win – larger complex solutions in all the countries where we are active, which lays the foundation for our continued growth.

Despite the uncertainty in all of our markets, we have welcomed more than 230 new employees in Q2, which I am truly proud of." André Rogaczewski, CEO and Co-founder
