CEO Michael Aaen comments:
“We are pleased to report that despite a challenging macroeconomic environment during 2022, Wirtek still achieved great results with revenue growth of 45% and EBITDA growth of 20%.
We expect double-digit organic revenue growth during 2023 in the range of 11% to 19%. We will continue to invest in building an efficient delivery organization that will enable us to meet the needs of our clients and support strong and profitable growth, and we will invest further in the digitalization of our company. These significant investments will have a negative impact on EBITDA in 2023 but will improve our profitability from 2024 and onwards and will support our long-term strategic goals.”
