EQS-Adhoc : SoftwareONE delivers solid results -3-

03/25/2021 | 01:06am EDT

Consequently, and based on the assumption of no further material deterioration in the environment due to Covid-19, SoftwareONE's guidance for 2021 is as follows: . Gross profit growth above 10% for the group in constant currency^[7]; . Adjusted EBITDA margin of approximately 30%; . Dividend pay-out ratio of 30-50% of adjusted profit for the year.

By business line, Solutions & Services is expected to continue to demonstrate strong momentum in 2021, with the rate of gross profit growth materially exceeding that of Software & Cloud. Furthermore, overall growth for the group is expected to accelerate during the course of the year, as the effects of ongoing strategic initiatives and investments come through.

Beyond 2021, SoftwareONE expects a further acceleration in gross profit growth to the 'mid-teens' in constant currency, with EBITDA growth in excess of gross profit growth in the mid-term.

Supported by a strong balance sheet and cash flow generation, SoftwareONE will continue to invest to drive long-term profitable growth.
