Xplora Technologies AS Q1 24 – Strong revenue growth and positive EBITDA

Oslo, 16 May 2024 – Xplora Technologies AS ("Xplora") today published its Q1 24 results. In Q1 24 Xplora generated group revenues of NOK 118.7m, +24% y/y. Service revenues were NOK 62.7m, +38% y/y and device revenue were NOK 56.1m, +12% y/y. Gross profit ended at NOK 68.9m and EBITDA ended at NOK 1.6m in Q1 24. Xplora exited Q1 24 with a cash balance of NOK 119.6m.

The first quarter of the year has traditionally been the softest due to seasonal factors, however, Q1 24 witnessed a significant increase in revenue. This achievement reflects the resilience of the foundations laid in 2023. “We managed to increase both service and device revenue compared to Q1 23, even when selling slightly fewer units and seeing a flat development in our subscription base from last quarter. In addition, we ended the quarter with a positive EBITDA. These achievements are a result of our focus on increasing Average Selling Price on our devices, growing service revenue and keeping a continued emphasis on attentive costs management”, Says Kirkbak, CEO at Xplora.

Key highlights of Q1 2024:
- Group revenues +24% y/y to NOK 118.7m
- Service revenues +38% y/y to NOK 62.7m, translating to an ARR of NOK 250.8m

- Positive EBITDA of NOK 1.6m, an improvement of NOK 4.3m from the same quarter last year
- CAPEX of NOK 3.4m, down from NOK 4.4m in Q1 23
