20% INCREASE IN TURNOVER IN Q2 2021 TO EUR 60.7M PROFIT - PROSPECTS REVISED UPWARDS


Unaudited consolidated data in
in €m – IFRS
2021 2020 Change
Q1 turnover 60.2 61.2 -2%
Q2 turnover 60.7 50.7 +20%
H1 turnover 120.9 111.9 +8%

Alphonse has been consolidated since March 1st, 2021.

 

In Q2 2020, Umanis (Euronext Growth - FR0013263878 - ALUMS) realised consolidated revenue of €60.7m, up +20% compared to the Q2 2020.

Umanis's strong return to growth is thus confirmed beyond the +15% increase expected at the time of publication of Q1 turnover.

This process is the result of an increase in billable staff and a continuous improvement in the activity rate throughout the first half of the year (TACE up by +3.7%).

In addition, Q2 2021 was marked by a significant improvement in sales with the opening of new high-potential major accounts and an acceleration of new massification projects, such as the multi-year contracts with Crédit Agricole Group Infrastructure Platform and another leading French banking institution.

In this favourable environment, the company feels more confident in its annual recruitment plan – already well underway – with an increase of 340 consultants since the beginning of the year, with profiles focused on data-related professions (data engineers, data scientists and developers).

 

IMPROVED OUTLOOK FOR 2021...

With these positive elements considered, and as a result of the measures taken from the end of Q1 2021 to operational efficiency, Umanis is in a position to anticipate that profitability in H1 2021 above that of last year (reminder: 9.2% EBITDA margin in H1 2020).

For the full year 2021, Umanis confirms its development trajectory, which positions the company on a proforma 2021 revenue outlook (after the acquisition of the French ESN Alphonse) of around €250 million, excluding new external growth operations.

In terms of profitability, the Group aims to achieve an annual EBITDA margin of around 13% by 2021.

 

...AND CONFIRMATION OF A MORE SUSTAINED EXTERNAL GROWTH POLICY

H1 2021 also confirms Umanis' intention to resume a policy of sustained external growth in 2021.

Several projects are being studied, in line with the Group's strategic positioning on data, business consulting and the digital transformation of companies.
