In the interim statement published today for the period ending 30 September 2022, the preliminary key financial figures for the third quarter already published for the CANCOM Group were confirmed. Accordingly, in the third quarter of 2022 the CANCOM Group achieved Group revenues of € 329.6 million (prior year: € 297.7 million) and a Group EBITDA of € 28.9 million (prior year: € 32.6 million). For the nine-month period 2022, this means that the CANCOM Group achieved Group revenue of € 925.1 million (prior year: € 932.8 million) and Group EBITDA of € 80.0 million (prior year: € 85.5 million).
The largest contribution to the CANCOM Group's revenue growth in the third quarter of 2022 came from the IT Solutions business segment. The Cloud Solutions business segment, on the other hand, continued to support EBITDA development in 2022 in particular. It also showed unchanged high momentum in the development of recurring revenue, which increased by 23.9 percent.
"For CANCOM, the 2022 financial year has been exceptional in all areas, both in terms of revenue and earnings development as well as with regard to capital requirements. But in the third quarter we returned to our long-established growth path and this confirms my conviction: CANCOM operates with a very future-proof business model and the team has outstanding IT skills and technical expertise. I am delighted to now be able to lead this company as CEO and once again expressly thank my predecessor Rudi Hotter on behalf of CANCOM for 17 years of successful Executive Board work," said Rüdiger Rath, CEO of CANCOM SE. Rüdiger Rath is CEO of CANCOM SE since 1 November 2022 and was priorly a member of the Executive Board as COO.
The CANCOM Group's cash flow from operating activities totalled € -43.6 million in the third quarter of 2022 (prior year: € -17.9 million), in particular due to the exceptionally high inventory levels in connection with the globally strained IT supply chains.
ARR with high momentum and IT Solutions segment delivers double-digit growth
The Cloud Solutions segment combines the IT as a Service business of the CANCOM Group. Revenue in the third quarter of 2022 amounted to € 69.2 million (prior year: € 63.0 million), representing a year-on-year increase of 9.9 percent. EBITDA was € 20.4 million (prior year: € 20.1 million). The EBITDA margin in the segment was 29.4 percent (prior year: 31.9 percent). Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) improved to € 211.2 million (prior year: € 170.4 million).
In the IT Solutions segment, which includes the project-based IT as a Concept business, revenue in the third quarter of 2022 was 10.9 percent higher than in the same period of the prior year at € 260.3 million (prior year: € 234.7 million). EBITDA amounted to € 13.1 million (prior year: € 16.5 million). The EBITDA margin was correspondingly 5.1 percent (prior year: 7.0 percent), which was unusually high in the prior year.
Acquisition of S&L Group, US business sold
In the third quarter, the CANCOM Group acquired the S&L group of companies, which complements the CANCOM Group's portfolio with services and managed services as well as project-based IT business. S&L was consolidated as of 1 August 2022.
In addition, as part of its strategic focus on the DACH region, CANCOM sold the Group company HPM Incorporated in the third quarter and with it its business activities in the USA, which also no longer made a significant contribution to the CANCOM Group's revenue and earnings performance. Due to the reclassification of the results of the US business in the income statement to the item "profit after taxes from discontinued operations", the key financial figures of the CANCOM Group presented here have also already been adjusted for this effect for the prior year.
