Analysis of Q4 activity:

Prodware generated revenue of €59.2m in Q4 2016, an increase of 6.1% versus €55.8m in Q4 2015.

On a comparable basis, quarterly activity was up 8.9%. Saas sales over the period rose 57.43%, to €4.6m.

2016:

Prodware's revenue in 2016 stands at €176m, versus €181.8m in 2015. This represents a fall of 3.2%. Revenue remained basically stable on a comparable basis, nudging down just 0.8%.
The change in the sales model to Saas explains this slight drop in revenue. The Saas model leads to much lower immediate revenue, but will contribute to recurring revenue.
Sales in Saas rose from €12.6m in 2015 to €18.5m in 2016 (a 46.6% increase) and now represent a little over 10% of overall revenue, versus 7% in 2015.

Publishing revenue totaled €61.5m in 2016, representing 34.9% of the overall revenue. On a comparable basis, this is a 1.2% increase compared with 2015.

Revenue in the French-speaking zone fell 3.2% in 2016, to €77.4m. Revenue in the international zone totaled €98.5m, up 2.9% versus 2015. This represents 56% of the Group's activity, versus 52.7% in 2015.

Outlook

Prodware is pursuing its transformation plan, which is driving the progressive evolution of its high value-added offer toward technology consulting and the implementation of an IT system, underpinned by digital.
The Group is continuing its efforts to address the most profitable market segments as a priority, through an economic model that is increasingly oriented toward recurring services with high value-added and publishing, with a focus on digital.
