By the start of July 2021, revenue visibility for the full year increased by 23.4% to DKK 3,064.5m compared to DKK 2,483.6m at the beginning of July 2020 of which DKK 1,681.8m reflects realised revenue in the first half of 2021.

For 2021, Netcompany lifts expectations to organic revenue growth in constant currencies to be around 18%-20%. Netcompany still expects adjusted EBITA margin in constant currencies to be around 23-25%.

"In Q2 2021, we grew 21% and continued the strong momentum from the first quarter of 2021.

With the growth achieved in both the UK and Norway we see that the increased usage of resources across the Group was the right investment made to support long term sustainable growth.

Our continued growth is dependent on our ability to maintain and attract talent and I am pleased to have welcomed more than 350 new Netcompany employees to our large and growing family during the quarter.

As COVID-19 restrictions ease, we have increased our activities with our employees, and I am delighted to see more and more of our talented employees and meet our customers in face-to-face engagements again.

I am excited about the outlook for Netcompany and look forward to continue to expand our presence in Northern Europe together with our employees, customers and other key stakeholders.” André Rogaczewski, CEO and Co-founder
