PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
|Q1||46.3||45.1||+ 2.7%||+ 0.8%|
Growth of subscription-based sales (SaaS): + 10.5%
In the first quarter of fiscal year 2019, Prodware recorded revenue of €46.3 million, up from €45.1 million in the first quarter of 2018, representing a 2.7% increase. On a comparable basis, restating the integration of Microsoft Dynamics activity acquired from CTAC in the Netherlands in October 2018 and AIGA in France, quarterly activity is showing growth of 0.8%.
The increase in revenue is due in particular to SaaS-based sales, which generate recurring sales and increased margins. They have reached €6.3 million, representing a 10.5% increase. They now represent 14.0% of the Group's activity, versus 13% in the first quarter of 2018.
Direct revenue from Publishing was recorded at €15.5 million for this period, and represents 34% of overall activity, showing no change from the first quarter of 2018.
The 3.2% growth trajectory of Consulting has continued, while Integration services have increased by 2.0% to reach €24.5 million, driven in particular by the successful roll-out of the Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform.
Good momentum in international sales
The drop in activity in the French-speaking zone is slowing substantially following a fourth quarter characterized by a climate that was putting considerable strain on services. Revenue in this zone now sits at €20.0 million, compared with €20.2 million in the first quarter of 2018.
In addition, Prodware is benefiting from strong sales internationally, which have increased by 5.4%, driven in particular by a sharp rebound of sales in Benelux, as well as momentum in Spain. International revenue sits at €26.3 million, accounting for 56.7% of overall sales.
Bolstered by its strong sales trajectory, Prodware is continuing its 2016-2021 plan that aims to re-center the Group on its flagship activities, deploy its SaaS strategy, and accelerate growth.
