|€m – Unaudited data as of 30/09||9 months 2021||9 months 2022||Change||Organic change|
|o/w SaaS subscriptions||10.3||14.2||+38%||+24%|
|o/w International revenue||36.7||56.3||+53%||+26%|
|As a %||27%||36%|

|As a %||63%||64%|
Revenue in the SOFTWARE business was up 8% to €27.7m in Q3 2022 (-2% in organic terms) in line with the Q2 trend. The performance was not particularly meaningful given the extremely robust momentum seen at the start of the year (+30% organic growth in Q1) with a high level of order anticipations, especially in industry.
Revenue generated from Software as a Service (SaaS) subscriptions was up 38% over nine months (+24% in organic terms) and accounted for 15% of total SOFTWARE revenue. At end-September 2022, ARR (annual recurring revenue) amounted to €22.1m, up 53% (+28% in organic terms) relative to the amount on 30 September 2021.
Revenue in the CONSULTING business remained robust in Q3 2022 (+23%, including 8% organic growth) in all businesses. Momentum was driven by growth in the Americas region (+94%), which now accounts for a third of revenue in the CONSULTING business vs. just over 20% in Q3 2021. The appeal of the cybersecurity and digital transformation offers has not weakened with 16 diagnostics contracts signed over the past quarter, after 32 during the first half of 2022.
Recurring revenue (multi-year contracts, software maintenance and software subscriptions) exceeded the €100m mark at end-September 2022 to stand at €101.4m, up 20% (+12% in organic terms) over nine months. Recurring business represents 64% of Visiativ's total billings (vs. 63% at end-September 2021).
Continuing on from previous quarters, sales generated outside France remained particularly dynamic in the third quarter of 2022 (up 52% including 15% on a constant scope and exchange rate basis). At end-September, they represented 36% of Visiativ's revenue vs. 27% at end-September 2021.
After a strong first half showing 20% growth and a 32% increase in EBITDA, Visiativ continues to deliver robust growth, especially in international business. The recent acquisitions of MB CAD in Germany and Braithwaite in Canada and in Ireland and Absiskey in France, are set to fully contribute to this positive and margin-enhancing momentum.
At the same time, the share of recurring business is growing from one quarter to the next, with ARR of more than €22m (vs. €19m at end-June), benefiting from the entry into the scope of consolidation of business mobile apps publisher Daxium in Q3 (€2.1m in additional ARR).
Strengthened by this solid momentum, Visiativ reiterates the targets of its CATALYST strategic plan aiming for EBITDA of €30m for 2023.
