ATOSS Software AG: Growth course unbroken -
15 record sales and earnings years in succession confirm the company's excellent future prospects

ATOSS Software AG has concluded the financial year 2020 with new record sales and earnings figures. Despite the challenges the Covid-19 pandemic presented, the company once again succeeded in expanding its dynamic development and even markedly exceeded the financial targets set for 2020. ATOSS achieved double-digit consolidated sales growth of 21 percent to EUR 86.1 million. The operating result was up overproportionately by 36 percent to EUR 26.2 million.

Munich, January 29, 2021

With the figures now presented, ATOSS Software AG can look back on a financially extremely successful financial year 2020, once again demonstrating the strength of its business model. For the 15th year in a row, the Munich-based specialist for workforce management has succeeded in impressively exceeding the already high record figures of the previous years in terms of sales and earnings and in convincing a large number of renowned new customers of its innovative and value-adding solutions.rhe company has thereby continued and further expanded its strategic growth course at a high level - even in economically uncertain times. Most notably, the share of annually recurring revenues was sustainably increased through the planned expansion of the cloud business.

Software sales in the period from January to December 2020 showed marked double-digit growth of 20 percent, coming in at EUR 56.0 million (previous year: EUR 46.5 million). This equates to a 65 percent share of the Group's total sales (previous year: 65 percent). The greatest boost to growth in software revenues was from recurring revenues of cloud solutions and subscriptions, which increased by 66 percent to EUR 12.9 million (previous year: EUR 7.8 million). The growth in software maintenance, which has been consistently positive for years, also continued. Here, sales here rose by 10 percent to EUR 26.6 million (previous year: EUR 24.2 million). Overall, recurring revenues as a share of software revenues rose by 2 percent to 71 percent. Sales from consulting services advanced by 23 percent to EUR 24.1 million, a significant year-on-year increase (previous year: EUR 19.5 million).

Not only in terms of sales is ATOSS sizing up new record figures. Especially operating earnings (EBIT) rose by 36 percent to EUR 26.2 million (previous year: EUR 19.3 million) thanks to the successful implementation of major projects, the company's prudent cost management and high productivity ratio. The company continued to drive its investments forward in expanding capacity, predominantly in the areas of Customer Services and Support, Research and Development and internal digitization projects. Consequently, the EBIT margin amounts to an impressive 30 percent (previous year: 27 percent).


The sustained strong demand for ATOSS workforce management solutions is also reflected in the outstanding orderbook figures. Take, for example, the key metric for the cloud transformation of the business model - Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR for short) - sales here rose by 61 percent to EUR 13.3 million (previous year: EUR 8.3 million). The ARR stands for the revenues generated by the company within the next 12 months on the basis of monthly cloud usage fees applicable on the closing date. The order backlog for software licenses as of December 31, 2020 was up by 9 percent to EUR 9.1 million (previous year: EUR 8.3 million).

And what is more, the interest in digital solutions for demand-oriented workforce scheduling continues unabated. Particularly in times of volatile market developments combined with high demands on internal control, management, and flexibility - as currently triggered by the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic - effective and highly efficient software solutions for demand-optimized workforce management are essential for companies. In addition, there is the currently clearly visible enormous need of many companies to catch up in the context of digitalization.

Against the backdrop of the excellent business situation and long-term growth trends in all addressed markets, the Management Board expects the record development to continue in the 2021 financial year with sales exceeding EUR 95 million and an EBIT-margin of at least 27 percent.

The Management Board intends to propose that in approving the appropriation of net income, the Supervisory Board recommends a dividend payment of EUR 1.67 per share (previous year: EUR 1.275 per share). The recommendations for the appropriation of net income put forward by the Management and Supervisory Boards will be resolved upon at the annual general meeting on April 30, 2021.
