Message from the CEO
XMReality´s CEO Jörgen Remmelg
2020 has been a very strong year for XMReality. Also, a year of significant change and a testament for how powerful a good vision- and strategy work is for the positive transition of a company. Indeed, we have had the market with us and an accelerated need for Remote Guidance as a consequence of the travel restrictions we have lived with during the majority of 2020. During the year we have more or less doubled our Order Intake, Net Sales and ARR at the same time as cost grew only 7 percent. This in itself is a definition of scalability which makes me proud of the team!
We act on a very healthy market where the growth is sufficient for the current players. This in turn means that we do not to the same degree have to steel market shares from the competition, which typically is more costly. Enterprise augmented reality software, i.e. gaming and hardware excluded, is expected to have a CAGR of at least 50 percent mid-term (see figure 1). The market growth during 2021 is projected to 66 percent. The majority of this growth is expected in areas where we are active and successful such as manufacturing industry, health care, facility management and automotive. We have very good growth ideas within these areas.
The Order Intake is growing at a good pace (see figure 2) and our customers are satisfied with the product, its functionality, stability and availability of the service. A clear trend during the year has been more competitive and structured procurements within our market segment. This is a sign of maturity and I am glad to note that we have won the majority of these that we have participated in. This drives new sales. Also, up-sales to existing customers is increasing where we sell more branding of the application which increases our stickiness. Also, in the Order Intake diagram you will see our typical seasonal variation with strong Q4’s and less strong Q3’s.
The Annual Recurring Revenus (ARR) make up some 80 percent of our business and is a central metric in the SaaS (Software as a Service) model. During the spring strategy work, we re-defined the activity formula with the objective to accelerate ARR growth. To now, for the FY2020, achieve an ARR-growth of 117 percent (see
