(Oslo, 25 February 2020) Mintra reports revenue of NOK 205.3 million and an EBITDA of NOK 69.8 million for 2020, corresponding to an EBITDA margin of 34%. This compares to a revenue of NOK 232.0 million and an EBITDA of NOK 44.3 million for 2019. Operating profit (EBIT) was NOK 50.0 million, compared to a loss of NOK 12.3 million in the previous year, whereas profit before tax improved to NOK 10.3 million from a loss of NOK 28.7 million in 2019. The figures have been prepared under the IFRS accounting standard.
“We have seen good growth for our high-margin human capital management software and learning and competence management system, Trainingportal, which drives the share of recurring revenue and lifts our margins. On the other hand, we have seen delayed eLearning demand due to work and travel restrictions related to Covid-19, especially in the energy sector. We believe this demand is delayed and not lost. We have maintained a strong market position with zero customer churn, and believe we are ideally placed for a demand rebound post-Covid,” said Scott Kerr, CEO of Mintra.
Mintra has seen good growth in the maritime sector in 2020 and strengthens its position in this market further following the acquisition of Safebridge in February 2021.
For the fourth quarter isolated, the company reported revenue of NOK 43.8 million (57.2) and an EBITDA of NOK 10.3 million (2.8). Operating profit improved to NOK 6.1 million from a loss of NOK 12.3 million in the fourth quarter 2019, whereas profit before tax improved to NOK 7.0 million from a loss of NOK 27.8 million in the same quarter last year.
Going forward, Mintra reiterates its medium-term targets to realise organic growth of more than 15% and improve EBITDA-margins above 40%. In 2021, the company expects organic revenue growth of 10% or more, with the acquisition of Safebridge expected to add approximately NOK 30-35 million in revenue this year. Growth is likely to be back-end loaded due to persisting Covid-19 effects in the first half of the year and because the company’s growth initiatives are expected to gradually gain momentum through the year. EBITDA-margins are expected to improve further to 35%-40% in 2021.
