CEO’s comment on performance
Jeeves’ turnover increased by 8 percent in Q1, maintaining an EBITDA margin of 13 percent.
The market situation has not changed, and we are seeing a strong interest in ERP systems with several procurements in progress. The deals that are closed continue to be with smaller companies in the SME segment. New sales and maintenance revenue remain stable, but the few larger deals are limiting growth. We have seen a healthy demand for our consultants.
Jeeves and its partners are gradually strengthening Jeeves’ offering and position in selected industry segments. During the quarter Jeeves launched a new concept for the fashion sector (textile and design companies), which integrates companies’ design processes with an ERP system that is tailored to the sector’s particular needs. Several new fashion customers have also chosen Jeeves, both in Sweden and abroad. Building supply retailers are another important target group where we have signed new customers.
Jeeves, which supplies attractive products adapted to rapidly growing companies’ need for change and efficiency, is one of the few suppliers that continue to make new sales and increase its customer base. We are well positioned for growth, both in Sweden and abroad.
