Strong sales trend in strategic segments in 2019

In fiscal year 2019, Prodware’s turnover jumped to €188.6 million from €175.9 million in 2018 for an increase of 7.3%. Adjusted for the acquisitions of AIGA-CTAC in 2018 and the neutralisation of integrated turnover (e.g. “Retail and Digital activity”), turnover was up 0.8%. In the fourth quarter, the traditionally strong seasonality effect was even more pronounced with an increase of 18.6%.

Turnover in 2019 in French-speaking regions jumped to €76.0 million for an increase of 9.7%, while international activity continued to expand with a 5.7% increase in turnover to reach €112.6 million.

This strong performance across all regions serves to confirm the Prodware group's strategy that is based on four key fundamentals focusing on “end-to-end” comprehensive service :

  • Consulting on information technologies and more specifically on Innovation,
  • Publishing of industry-specific solutions and innovative business lines,
  • Implementation,
  • Managed Services, which keep clients’ business running 24/7.

This strategy is popular with the group's main tech partners:

  • Prodware is the only French company in Microsoft's very selective “Inner Circle”, which includes just 11 partners worldwide.
  • Prodware holds the highest “Platinum Partner” ranking with Autodesk, largely thanks to its perfect command of Augmented and Virtual Reality technologies as well as digitisation and 3D.

Turnover from Publishing (32.7% of overall turnover) reached €61.7 million for an increase of 9.2% from 2018, driven by key account clients’ needs to adapt and customise major projects.

Total SaaS sales reached €38.9 million for an increase of 34.8% from the previous fiscal year. This slice of turnover, which is recurring and enjoys higher margins, has more than doubled over three years and now accounts for 20% of Prodware's total revenues.
