Bilbao, Spain, 18 July.- Virtualware (EPA:MLVIR), a pioneering VR company employing a SaaS business model, today announced record-breaking H1 2023 financial results, just three months after it went public in Euronext Access Paris.
In H1 2023, Virtualware reported total revenues of €2,149 million, indicating a 44.71% growth over the previous year. Most of this growth was fueled by subscription plan revenues accounting for €630,000, which show a substantial year-on-year increase of 208.23%.
The company’s gross profit margin increased to 82%, up from 76% in H1 2022, demonstrating improved operational efficiency, according to unaudited results disclosed to the market.
Virtualware’s EBITDA for the year’s first half was €348,000, a significant increase from 2022. After adjustments for capitalized expenses, IPO-related extraordinary expenses, and extraordinary income, the EBITDA was €292,000. This is a considerable leap forward from the negative €293,000 EBITDA in H1 2022.
The wage expenses, which include one-time IPO-related employee share allocations, increased by 24.08% to €1,445 million. This rise is a combined result of salary increases and staff expansion, which accounted for 17% of the increase, and employee share remuneration due to the IPO, which comprised the remaining 7%.
External services expenditure was €507,228, up 35.17% year-on-year, including the IPO’s extraordinary expenses. Excluding these, the year-on-year growth is 3.16%.
