Strong growth across divisions
During periods of high market uncertainty, there is a clear and consistent trend that customers within accounting, payroll, and other mission-critical applications move towards modern cloud-based software. So far, 2020 is no exception. All four of Visma’s core divisions delivered strong growth in Q2 compared to one year ago. Software Nordic & International grew revenue by 25,1%, Software Benelux by 23,5%, Custom Solutions by 29,0%, and Commerce Solutions by 48,7%.
Continued cloud growth
Visma’s Cloud Annualised revenue, which is a forward-looking indicator of future cloud revenue, reached a run rate of NOK 14 200 million in Q2. This was an increase of 35,5% compared to the same period last year.
Visma has now eclipsed 1 million customer contracts. 800 000 of these are cloud contracts, an increase of 26,5% over one year ago.
Eight new acquisitions
Visma had eight new acquisitions in Q2. The Netherlands continues to be a focal point for growth, with accounting software provider Visionplanner and HR and Payroll supplier Nmbrs joining the Visma family. Visma also acquired Norwegian cloud reporting specialist Framsikt, as well as Argentina-based Zetech, provider of digital signature and document management solutions. The acquisition of Zetech allows Visma to offer complementary products to Latin American customers and further expand its presence in Argentina, Chile, Peru, Mexico and Uruguay.
