The Board of Directors of Doxee (DOX: IM), a leading high-tech multinational provider of Customer Communications Management (CCM), Digital Customer Experience, and Paperless, met today to approve the draft financial statements and consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2022, prepared for the first time in accordance with IAS/IFRS International Accounting Standards.
Sergio Muratori Casali, CEO of Doxee, commented as follows: “For us, 2022 was an important year, in which we intended to lay the groundwork to further accelerate the process of development undertaken so far, also thanks to the opportunity to carry out a strategic acquisition, which will start producing the expected benefits as early as this year. In terms of results, in 2022, the Doxee Group recorded growth in revenues exceeding 22% compared to 2021, testifying to the Group’s correct positioning in the international markets of digitization of communication processes for companies and the public administration. Due to this growth, we have further accelerated strategic investments in line with our roadmap. First and foremost is the investment in the acquisition of Infinica GmbH, which, thanks to its established customer base and the possibility to integrate cloud products into a single portfolio of products and services dedicated to supporting the Digital Customer Experience of Enterprise and SME customers, will allow the Group to commercially expand to the DACH and Eastern European areas. We also made significant investments in R&D and in strengthening the organizational structure, particularly in the sales team, to develop new markets, also by extending the partner network, the strengthening of which is essential to support organic
1 EBITDA is defined by Doxee as Earnings Before Tax (EBT), as reported in the consolidated income statement before (i) financial income and expenses, (ii) amortization of intangible assets, (iii) depreciation of tangible assets, and (iv) provisions. Since EBITDA is not identified as an accounting measure under the IAS-IFRSs adopted by the Company, its quantitative calculation may not be unambiguous.
growth with a view to scalability of the Group’s business model. The year 2022 was another important year for the development of the Doxee Platform® technology asset. As a result, we will continue to grow not only in business volume but also in profitability and efficiency. From 2023, we expect considerable synergies from the integration with Infinica GmbH, both in terms of cross-selling and up-selling, but also with a view to development of joint product innovation of the platform, due to the focus on the respective excellences and specializations with a sharp acceleration on the defined roadmap.”
The year 2022 also showed significant revenue growth, confirming the success of Doxee’s process of development both in Italy and internationally, with particular focus in the DACH area, also due to the newly acquired Infinica GmbH. Specifically, growth continues in our main Telco and Utilities markets, in which the portfolio of products and services makes it possible to satisfactorily respond to digitalization demands and increases contract value generated on the Group’s key customers through up-selling and cross-selling of products offered. Also noteworthy, with the support of the NRRP, was the increase in revenues from the Public Administration sector: in 2022, those revenues increased by 34% compared to 2021, double the +17% growth recorded in the previous year, thanks to the component of indirect sales through strategic partnerships, and the awarding of major tenders with the Central Government. The Public Administration is confirmed to be a major user of technologies in the interactive experience (ix) line, with the product Doxee Pvideo which empowers central and local governments with effective digital communications to promote services dedicated to citizens through personalized videos.
Investments aimed at supporting the evolution of the Doxee Platform also continued in 2022, from a Customer Communications Management (CCM) platform to a Customer Experience Management (CXM) model to support companies in the complete and efficient management of all multichannel interactions with their customers.
Doxee’s development strategy, aimed at establishing itself as one of Europe’s leading technology vendors in the Digital Customer Experience and CCM fields, has been driven not only by strong organic growth of the Company but also by growth through external lines in international markets, achieved through the acquisition of 90% of Infinica GmbH (“Infinica”), an Austrian company specializing in software development in the CCM sector, in September 2022.
Evolution of the Doxee Platform
During 2022, core platform components were released to the market with an agile approach, according to the planned roadmap, which will produce initial results in terms of operational efficiency and revenues as early as 2023. Specifically, the Batch Production and Data Transformation components have been implemented and released, enabling the mass production of documents such as account statements, invoices and additional types of transactional communications, for a total of approximately 9 billion documents per year. In addition to these core components, the entire stack that enables paperless experience line products dedicated to e-invoicing and the analytics tools component, for electronic order and e-invoice tracking, were also released to the market. In 2022, Doxee Pvideo technology was also implemented within the new platform and the Doxee Booster product, which enables companies to manage the data lifecycle of the data it generates and define automated communications workflows based on user behavioral data, was launched. Also in the area of interactive experience, in the second half of 2022, technological convergence on videopersonalization technology began with the aim of enabling specific use cases for the Automotive, Retail and Fashion markets by using Adobe After Effect software2.
Lastly, during 2023, the technological integration of Infinica’s platform will continue, the effects of which will be seen from the third quarter of 2023 regarding the Interactive Correspondence component.
