Stockholm, Sweden – October 20, 2022 – Sinch AB (publ), a global leader in cloud communications and mobile customer engagement, today announces preliminary results for the third quarter 2022 and the outcome of its goodwill impairment test. Sinch discloses this information since the company considers it to significantly deviate from current market expectations.

Goodwill impairment
Sinch regularly assesses goodwill and has conducted an impairment test when finalizing results for the third quarter. The impairment test has resulted in a total impairment charge of SEK 5,000 million.

The charge relates to Pathwire, a company which was acquired by Sinch in 2021 and which has since been reported as a separate Email segment. This impairment charge will impact Sinch’s third quarter income statement, but does not affect cash flow.

Third quarter report
Sinch is currently in the silent period preceding the third quarter report. The full report will, as previously announced, be disclosed on November 2, 07.30 CET. A webcast will take place 14.00 CET. See investors.sinch.com for more information.
