General Update: Moving towards a software-based affiliate creates efficiencies
Acroud AB (publ) announces that its continued investment in productivity, synergies and software tools is leading to a larger efficiency program being launched as of today with around 20 people being affected. The program is aimed at creating a cost saving of around EUR1.2M in 2022, while accelerating revenue growth in 2022 and beyond. This program will have a one-off cost in Q4 2021 of approximately EUR 200-250k.
Robert Andersson, CEO of Acroud, comments:
“This is a clear result of our strategy to become more effective and software-based while utilizing synergies. After multiple acquisitions, we have taken a big step towards being a more software driven affiliate, and have now identified cost synergies. This means that we are able to do more with less people. We expect to see the significant effects on EBITDA levels from this program in 2022 and onwards. A leaner, more agile company will keep a higher pace and will adopt quicker to changes. Our goal is always to keep a firm eye on our costs while accelerating our growth in line with our strategy.”
