Netcompany maintains expectations to revenue growth and margins for 2022 on Group level.
“In Q2 2022, we grew revenue by 58% compared to Q2 2021 to DKK 1,305.8m, despite a temporary higher level of sickness in Denmark and Norway and non-recurring adjustments to three projects in Norway.
We continued to see a strong performance in our UK operation that grew more than 30% in the quarter and at the same time Netcompany-Intrasoft performed above expectations and grew close to 15% in the quarter.
Irrespective of the rapid changes occurring in the macroeconomic environment, in which we operate, we continue to see our pipeline increase across our business, hence we have continued to add new employees to the Netcompany family.
At the end of Q2 2022, the Group accounts for more than 6,700 employees including Netcompany-Intrasoft, and during the second quarter of 2022, we welcomed more than 400 new employees in Netcompany Core and more than 250 in Netcompany-Intrasoft.
Despite challenging market conditions, we remain confident that Netcompany is well situated to maintain strong growth and financial performance based on the society and business critical nature of our business, the unique delivery model and best in class employees.”
