(Oslo, Norway, January 10, 2022) In this trading update, Pexip Holding ASA (“Pexip” or “The Company” Oslo Børs Ticker: PEXIP) presents its Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) for the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2021. In Q4 2021, Pexip increased its ARR with 30% year-on-year to USD 106.4 million.

  • Pexip’s subscription base measured in ARR reached USD 106.4 million in Q4 2021, up from USD 81.9 million in Q4 2020, representing a year-on-year increase of 30% or USD 24.6 million for 2021 full year.
  • Of the 30% year-on-year growth in ARR, 29 percentage points (pp) are from new customers. Net revenue retention rate, reflecting the percent of retained revenue from existing customers, was 101% year-on-year, including churn of 9.7% year-on-year.
  • Pexip generated new ARR of USD 6.6 million in Q4 2021, compared to USD 9.1 million in Q4 2020 and USD 4.4 million in Q4 2019.
  • ARR from Pexip’s Self hosted Software reached USD 58.8 million in Q4 2021, up 20% year-on-year, while ARR from Pexip as-a-Service reached USD 47.6 million, up 45% year-on-year.
  • The acquisition of Skedify, announced on November 8, 2021, accounted for slightly more than USD 0.9 million of the growth in ARR.

“I am pleased to report continued strong growth for Pexip in 2021, having increased our subscription base with USD 6.6 million in Q4, and USD 25 million in ARR during 2021. For Q4, I am particularly satisfied with the reduction in year-on-year churn which is now back below 10%, and to report that we landed some significant new customers. We experienced growth across all our core business pillars, however, the video infrastructure area is negatively impacted by the limited use of offices and delays in roll-out of new video rooms. This is due to the renewed Covid-19 restrictions and as well as delays in our customers’ video hardware deliveries due to chip shortages. As presented at Pexip’s Capital Markets Day in December 2021, moving into 2022, we have redefined our strategy to focus specifically on the three main business areas where Pexip has clear competitive differentiators – video infrastructure, critical meetings and video enablement. We feel confident that executing on this renewed focus and capitalizing on the growth investments made in 2020 and 2021 will enable us to deliver on our ambitions to return to positive EBITDA during 2023 and reach USD 300 million in ARR by the end of 2024,” said Interim CEO and CFO, Øystein Hem.
