Financial year 2020 press release

Message from the CEO

I think that every CEO will have been affected one way or another by 2020. Like many, we had to adapt as individuals and as a business, but the passion this team has for our customers continued to shine. I am hugely proud of that. I am also really proud to see that a significant part our license revenue has come from new logos, customers who have moved away from their legacy vendor; this combined with our performance in recurring revenue points the performance of a very strong business. 2021 will be a hugely important year for IFS as we launch IFS Cloud on March 10th.

H1 2020 Press Release

Message from the CEO

Our focus remains on delivering value to our customers and never before has this mission been more critical to their survival. Our close collaboration with our partners has ensured we remain relevant, which is reflected in our results. Consulting is a function of our partners hitting scale, and taking over the projects. This demonstrates our growth is where we want it to be. Our recent announcement about EQT and TA Associates’ ownership is a real endorsement of our strategy and our enormous potential to continue to capture market share.

Message from the CEO

Despite the economic headwinds presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, license revenue grew 39% compared to Q1 2019. Recurring revenues were also steady as customers depend on their IFS solutions to run their most mission critical business processes. On the back of this strong revenue development in Q1, EBITDA remains stable and is underpinned by ongoing initiatives to improve the IFS cost base. These initiatives support the short-term EBITDA performance while enabling our business to quickly rebound once the global lockdowns are eased. By taking prudent cost-control measures, we are building further resilience into the business, which we believe could see downward pressure through the next two quarters. Our ongoing focus remains fixed on taking precautions not only to protect our staff and community, but to ensure our customers continue to receive the stellar product, service and support they deserve.
