The fourth quarter results detailed in this report, have rounded off a pivotal year in the history of CYBER1. Building on top of a strong third quarter, the company achieved Q4 revenues of 21.43m EUR. With many of the subsidiaries being traditionally back-end loaded, continued organic revenue growth has been further realised year on year at 67.4%. This is a key mission statement for CYBER1, in building long term trust with our partners, combining proven results in implementing our services and solutions. We strongly feel this client centred approach will result in longer term benefits to CYBER1, its vendors and overall customer portfolio.
Combined with our recent acquisition results in 2018, overall year on year quarterly revenue growth has yielded a 238% increase (15.1m EUR). The former Itway subsidiaries continue to add tremendous value to the CYBER1 Group, with a number of diverse vendors and unique client base, that aid in consolidating and increasing our overall market presence in Europe, a key objective for 2019. These two drivers of internal growth combined with a methodical acquisition process, have underpinned our approach to further extend and build the company. Intertwined with this is ensuring that CYBER1’s integration process allows for entrepreneurial creativity and vision, combined with strong leadership and governance throughout the Group. CYBER1 sees these three pillars of organic growth, select acquisitions and a robust governance as the key to unlocking the company’s potential growth in the future.
CEO of CYBER1 Nick Viney commented: “The Group’s strong rapport and relationships with clients have cultivated a trust and understanding of their cyber security environments. The newly acquired businesses have continued their performance and I am excited with the cross-collaborative opportunities that are already bearing return, in driving organic growth within the Group of 67% in 2018 and overall 159% annual revenue growth being a testament to the hard work and dedication of CYBER1 and our partners. Looking ahead to 2019 and as we enter into our third year as a listed company, I look forward to integrating our subsidiaries closer together, to realise new commercial opportunities whilst ensuring appropriate internal governance can be achieved with our newly acquired and existing companies.”
