Continued growth in an uncertain market


Knowit is starting the year with continued revenue growth and good profitability. Net sales in the quarter increased by 16.2 percent combined with an adjusted EBITA margin of 10.1 percent. Net sales amounted to SEK 1,970.5 (1,695.3) million and the EBITA result, adjusted for acquisition and integration costs, to SEK 198.1 (194.2) million. Demand for high-quality digitalization services and solutions is relatively stable and Knowit continues to strengthen its position as a leading player in digital transformation. The consequence of increased geopolitical uncertainty and a changed macroeconomic climate is still noticed through longer decision-making processes regarding new projects, as well as new challenges when it comes to hiring primarily more junior consultants.

“Starting the year, we have met good demand in our four business areas, albeit with a growing tendency from our clients to wait compared with a year ago, when the economy was still very strong. I am particularly proud of the continued positive development in the business area Connectivity, which delivers good growth and profitability, largely thanks to our ability to adjust quickly and reallocate competencies in line with our clients’ needs. The business area Experience also shows stable development during the quarter, while the business areas Insight and Solutions are challenged by longer lead times with some clients,” says Per Wallentin, President and CEO.

Continually working to develop Knowit as an employer has remained a high strategic priority during the opening quarter of the year, albeit with a lower recruitment pace than during the same period last year. In a market characterized by some reluctance among clients, the focus is increasingly on new sales and a close dialogue with existing clients regarding ongoing client projects, renegotiations, and extensions.

“Knowit has a strong position as a digitalization partner for Nordic companies and I look with confidence to the coming year, despite the fact that the market situation is more difficult to assess than a year ago. Our ability to be agile and quickly adapt to changing market conditions and our clients’ needs will be a strength in a world that remains uncertain,” concludes Per Wallentin.
