Breukelen, 1 February 2023, 08.00 – TIE Kinetix, a leader in 100% supply chain digitalization announces its trading update for the first quarter of financial year 2023 today.
High Growth Plan on Track with Q1, 2023 Record Order Intake
TIE Kinetix today reports that the High Growth Plan is on track for 2023 with a record high Q1, 2023 order intake of € 6.1 million (Q1, 2022: € 2.8 million). Investments in sales and marketing are paying off with an all-time high order intake. From this € 6.1 million order intake, 72% was related to SaaS, compared to 52% in Q1, 2022.
SaaS revenues have grown by 18% in the first quarter to € 3,106k (Q1 2022: € 2,626k).
Jan Sundelin, CEO, TIE Kinetix says: “With the first quarter of financial year 2023 behind us, we see that the execution of our High Growth Plan continues to be in full swing. We are on plan. From our investments in new business teams, partner channels and customer success teams, we see a return already in this 1st quarter - something we expected later in 2023. We are both delighted and proud to report a record order intake for the past quarter of € 6.1 million. This order intake includes significant contracts for new hub-type customers as well as significant (50%+) value increases of existing customers, like GiZ. New significant contracts include Volkswagen Financial Services, Advasur, CooperSurgical and Camco Manufacturing.
Part of this success is attributable to our channel strategy. Where we have invested heavily in relations with new and existing partners and we are happy to report that this is starting to show results. The spearhead of our indirect sales strategy is our worldwide partnership with major ERP vendors Microsoft and Oracle. In the Microsoft ecosystem we have collaborative distribution agreements with Avanade and To-Increase.
With SaaS revenue growth of over 18%, we continue ramping up usage of our FLOW platform. Over the past quarter we have proven once again that this is a best-in-class product: besides being ISO 27001, ISO 27017 and ISO 27018 certified, FLOW is now also SOC 2 Type 2 and SOC 3 certified. This proves that we provide our customers a high level of assurance with respect to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy. Furthermore, with our products and solutions we enable our customers (both buyers and suppliers) to process and enhance all incoming and outgoing documents (such as invoices), data and messages digitally and provide a meaningful contribution to our customers' corporate social responsibility.”
2023 Interim dividend of € 0.50 per share
The Executive Board proposes to distribute an interim dividend for 2023 in the amount of € 0.50 per share (2022: € 0.50 per share) subject to AGM approval in March 2023. This will imply a maximum cash outflow of € 975k when all shareholders elect a cash dividend.
Management strives to continue the execution of this dividend policy in 2023. To underscore management's confidence in the growth strategy the Company opts to distribute the 2023 interim dividend from its reserves, in the absence of sufficient net profit.
