“The first quarter of 2021 was very hard for Brazil. New variants of the Coronavirus have been detected, the number of infections has skyrocketed across the country, health systems in several cities have collapsed and, unfortunately, the death toll has grown exponentially. In view of this situation, e-commerce continued to be the main alternative for retailers to continue operating safely, enabling the continuity and even the expansion of their businesses. As a result, Linx Digital now represents 14.7% of total recurring revenue in 1Q21, while Linx Pay also grew and started to account for 13.1% of total recurring revenue in the same year. It is important to note that despite the restrictive measures to the retail operation, the recurring revenue of Linx Core grew 14.6% in 1Q21 when compared to 1Q20,” explains Alberto Menache, Linx CEO.
We reaffirm our commitment to the long term, ensuring the safety of our team, service to customers and suppliers, and consequently, to the business.
