Høvik, 28 April 2022: House of Control Group AS (HOC) reported 36% revenue growth to NOK 54.0 million in the first quarter 2022, with organic growth of 20% excluding the effects of acquisitions and divestments.
Annual recurring revenue (ARR) was NOK 199 million at the end of Q1 2022, which also reflected 20% organic growth. Divestment of the on-premises business with effect from 1 March 2022 reduced ARR by NOK 16 million in Q1.
“The divestment of the non-core business tightens up the organization, sharpens the focus on our core portfolio of cloud-based products, and lowers our cost base by approximately NOK 30 million. This will enable us to generate positive EBITDA this year and positive Cash EBITDA including capitalized R&D investments from 2023 onwards. Our growth plan – to reach ARR of NOK 500 million by the end of 2025 – is fully funded with current financing,” says CEO Lasse Sten in House of Control Group.
