IFS announces expected outcome for 2014

On a preliminary basis, license revenue for the full year 2014 will amount to approximately SKr 558 million (534). EBIT is expected to improve to around SKr 270 million (204) and cash flow after investments is expected to improve to approximately SKr 269 million (120).

Alastair Sorbie, president and CEO, comments:

“License revenue for the fourth quarter 2014 came in somewhat short of our expectations meaning our target of strong license revenue growth for the full year could not be achieved. The principal factor was that some of the deals expected in the fourth quarter could not be finalized before the close of the year. These deals are now expected to be closed in 2015. We continue to see strong interest for IFS Applications and remain positive about our prospects.”

IFS will issue its year-end report for 2014 on Friday, February 6.
