CEO Letter from Quarterly Report
Summarizing the 19th quarter since the company was founded, it feels great to acknowledge that the company has grown into a group thanks to the acquisition of GetID. We continue delivering strong organic growth at the same time as we have gotten off to a flying start in the cooperation with our new colleagues. With the GetID technology, our offering is even stronger than previous quarters and the demand for our software remains strong. We have also opened the fourth quarter strongly and at the time of writing we have passed the milestone of SEK 50M in annual recurring revenue.
At the same time as we are growing rapidly in terms of turnover, we are continuously and methodically building a global SaaS solution from the ground up. We must dare to think long term. Hence we have tripled our Sales and Marketing investments during the quarter compared to the previous year, this initiative has moved forward in a good way but still needs to be assessed over several quarters. Short term EBITDA will be pushed down and is around zero for this year so far.
Even though the new sales organization needs additional time to reach full capacity I note that customer acquisition during Q3 has been positive and that several important agreements have been signed. Here I must especially highlight the agreement with Ryanair, but we have also seen nice development in general.
The most significant event during the quarter is of course the acquisition of GetID. I think the acquisition is very representative of what we are looking for and we will continuously work hard identifying additional acquisition candidates among technology leading companies with the same business logic. If we succeed in identifying similar acquisitions going forward, we will continue to expand our technical lead while also creating additional shareholder value.
As important as the acquisition itself is the effort of building an efficient group that makes use of the opportunities that our acquisition strategy creates. On that note, the integration of GetID has gone much faster than expected, both technically as from an organizational point of view. It is incredibly gratifying to work with teams that are both ahead technically and used to moving quickly and the collaboration has, as earlier stated, gotten off to a flying start. Thanks to the speed in the organization we already have joint volumes and see a strong demand for innovative hybrid solutions that takes advantage of Checkin.com’s full product offering.
A specific example of this is our offering on the newly regulated Dutch iGaming market. At the end of the quarter Betcity went live as our first partner on this market, and we also have deals with additional partners. Our solution offers them good business opportunities and the revenue from the Netherlands alone should be able to significantly contribute to growth during the coming quarter. Adding to that, Betcity was by far the groups largest partner during October.
As we put another quarter behind us I can state that our financial position is good, with a strong core business with high margins. This enables continued investments. We try to build a company that moves both quickly and long term, thereby creating sustainable shareholder value. I think Q3 is a great example of this.
