The report in brief:
(Q2 2023 vs Q2 2022):
CEO Letter from Quarterly Report
We once again see strong organic momentum in the business. After a weak start to the year, quarter two is not only our strongest quarter ever in terms of revenue but also a period during which we take several strategically important steps. The capacity investments we have now completed hopefully enable an even stronger autumn. Growth is foremost driven by an increased usage of our software from a few of our largest customers, with one of Europe's largest airlines at the forefront.
The acceleration of growth we have seen has largely occurred late in the quarter, making it significantly stronger than what the figures for the quarter may suggest at first glance. We start the new quarter with continued strong momentum and in July our revenues exceeded MSEK 100 on an annual basis.
During the quarter we have also continued to grow in new segments and markets, and we are gradually reducing our relative dependence on individual sectors. Nowadays, the iGaming segment, which historically has been a strong revenue driver, constitutes a minority of our revenues, and more than two-thirds of our customers are active in other segments. The effort we put into developing new segments should result in a continued trend towards a broader revenue base.
At the same time, we consciously focus on attracting and developing the largest customers within each segment. Here we have seen continued positive development during the second quarter in volumes from the airline we have been cooperating with for some time. The increase is gradual and is not fully reflected in this quarter's figures, but the customer is already by far our largest revenue contributor and continues to further expand their usage at the time of writing. This development is evidence of the leverage we can gain from the absolutely largest customers, and we hope to add more similar customers. If one has a pessimistic view, it could be argued that it's a weakness that this customer now accounts for a relatively large portion of our growth. However, from a more positive perspective, I believe it demonstrates that our growth targets are fully reachable even if we only add a handful of similar customers in the coming years.
We not only hope for continued positive development in the travel segment but also believe we can replicate the success in other sectors. For example, we have high hopes for the cooperation with a well-known Swedish fintech company with over 150 million customers, mainly in Europe and the US. The cooperation concerns global usage of our software for end-user identification. Following a successful trial period that has been concluded during the second quarter we hope to now enter a revenue-generating phase. So far no agreement with fixed commitments or guaranteed revenues has been entered into, but in terms of volume, there is certainly significant long-term potential.
Profitability wise the EBITDA margin is strengthened by 21 percentage points compared to last year, and we expect continued gradual improvements looking forward. However, during quarter two, we tied up an unusually large amount of working capital, which pushed down cash flow. While it is natural to tie up working capital during strong growth phases, we still anticipate a normalization of cash flow as early as next quarter.
Summing things up I think we are in an exciting position and we continue working hard, combined with acquisitions, to achieve MSEK 500 in revenue 2025.
