EQS Group AG publishes preliminary figures for 2018
Munich - 15.03.2019
EQS Group AG (ISIN: DE0005494165) has reported an increase in revenues of 19% to EUR36.21 million for the financial year 2018 according to preliminary unaudited figures. High investments led EBITDA to decrease to EUR301 thousand (previous year: EUR2.35 million). The guidance of August 16, 2018 was achieved.
In September 2017, EQS Group AG made the pivotal decision to expand its core business to the adjacent Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) business sector and to exclusively develop cloud-based solutions for this purpose. This move was marked by an investment offensive to expand the Group into a technology company. As a result, earnings have been temporarily burdened. Product development is proceeding according to plan. The first version of the new COCKPIT was successfully launched in the fourth quarter of 2018. The investment volume was increased last year, in particular for recruiting and the creation of additional resources, and has now peaked. In 2018, another 50 new software developers were hired.
For the financial year 2019, the Management Board is planning a 15% to 20% revenue increase to between EUR41.5 million and EUR43.5 million. The EBITDA is expected to come out between EUR1 million and EUR2 million. The full outlook for FY 2019 will be published in the Annual Report.
The audited figures for the financial year 2018 will be published by EQS Group AG on April 9, 2019.
