Assessment of the potential effects due to COVID-19
& the increase in energy costs
EPSILON NET Group, as early as 2020, has FULLY adapted its operation and SUCCESSFULLY faced the difficulties that arose from the consequences of the pandemic due to COVID-19, utilizing the appropriate technologies and infrastructure that has developed for remote work, ensuring to the maximum extent the health of the employees, while maintaining the high quality of the services provided to customers and partners. The increase in the cost of energy and raw materials is not expected to affect the operation of the company, since, due to the nature of the sector, they do not participate in production costs, in the development of new products and in the provision of services.
The achievement of strong growth rates both in 2020 and 2021, proves the adaptability and flexibility of all Group’s companies, strengthening the prospects for the continuation of its significantly positive course, for the whole financial year.
During the third quarter, the Group consistently continued the implementation of its investment plan, utilizing its expertise and its significant position in the field of business software. In September, the subsidiary of Epsilon SingularLogic Group, completed the acquisition of 80% of iQom, which provides specialized IT solutions to companies in the private sector.
Overall, the products, services and activities of the Group, recorded an impressive sales increase during January-September 2021, continuing the excellent course of the first half and strengthening the management’s estimation for a strongly dynamic year, which will be a milestone year for the beginning of a new development cycle and a basis for Group’s further expansion, both in the domestic market and abroad.
Within the first nine months of 2021, both the demerger and the integration of SingularLogic’s proprietary software for private sector in the newly established Epsilon SingularLogic, as well as the corporate transformation of the Group and the operational integration of the departments that came from the strategic acquisitions of 2020 & 2021, were successfully completed. Business and operational integration of different departments & specialized working groups, contributes decisively to the achievement of economies of scale and is the basis for the improvement of the operating margin, while it is also the business model for integrated utilization of future acquisitions.
Continuous utilization of cutting-edge cloud mobility technologies that are integrated in the Group’s products and especially in the innovative software platforms Galaxy and Pylon, giving a significant technological advantage to the Group’s products and services for medium and large companies and business groups, has a catalytic effect in the dynamic development of the Group.
At the same time, Group’s dominant position in the field of e-invoicing and in AADE’s myDATA e-books, in combination with the expanded portfolio of EpsilonSMART web applications for very small & small businesses and for freelancers, have contributed significantly to the further expansion of its already very large customer base, resulting in the increase of the Group’s active facilities from 30,000 at the beginning of 2020, to over 100,000 active facilities currently, which constitute both the starting point for achieving a significant degree of annual recurring revenue and the basis for its continuous and uninterrupted growth course.
At the same time based on its comprehensive contribution to the Digital Transformation of the private sector, Group systematically monitors the new financing possibilities that will arise in the near future by utilizing the financial tools from the “Recovery and Sustainability Fund” & the “NSRF 2021-2027” and has strategically prepared structures & collaborations (which will be gradually scaled from the first quarter of 2022) in order to make the most of the business opportunities that the digital economy has created worldwide.
Epsilon Net Group of companies continues during the last quarter of 2021 to consistently implement its strategic planning for the systematic expansion of its customer base and the technological solutions it offers, both horizontally and in dynamic vertical markets in Greece, creating a comprehensive all-in-one-solution ecosystem, while at the same time plans its gradual expansion abroad.
Mr. Ioannis Michos, Founder of the Group, Chairman of the Board of Directors & CEO of EPSILONNET, commenting on the results, made the following statement:
