CEO’s comments Strong Year-end In the CEO’s comments for the third quarter, I wrote that the Addnode Group could do better, which we have now shown. The market and our customers acted somewhat cautiously for most of 2013. This had an impact on us, particularly during the second and third quarters. In the fourth quarter, things improved slightly and we delivered a strong quarter due to a better market and excellent performance in our units. In addition, the acquisitions we implemented performed positively. Year-on-year growth in the fourth quarter was 10 percent and the adjusted EBITA margin amounted to 13.3 percent (13.5). Increase in recurring revenue The Addnode Group’s strategy to increase the proportion of recurring revenue and delivering more of our proprietary products, SaaS solutions and packaged services, to our customers continued to generate results. Compared with 2012, recurring revenue from support and maintenance (including SaaS ) increased SEK 107 M to SEK 634 M in 2013. The acquisition of Joint Collaboration in the third quarter, with SaaS rental solutions for projects and collaboration, is another example of how we are implementing this strategy. Good start to 2014 The Addnode Group has strong positions in several niched areas with growth potential. We are the leading supplier of IT solutions for design, project management and product lifecycle management in the Nordic region. We have strong offerings for the public sector in municipal administration, case management, e-archives and we have overall industrial offerings in digital communication and customer -service solutions. The healthy fourth quarter also gave us a boost as we enter 2014. Many of the transactions sold at the end of the year are projects that will be delivered during the first and second quarters of 2014. We have demonstrated that the Addnode Group is capable of growing with profitability and we look forward to 2014. With a strong balance sheet and healthy cash flows, we have significant latitude to develop our offerings, both organically and through acquisitions.
