CEO Kari Joki-Hollanti

“Lemonsoft’s business continued in 2021 on a strong growth trajectory – net sales increased by 26.8% due to accelerated new customer sales, additional sales to the existing customer base as well as acquisitions. We gained new customers in all of our customer industries, especially in industrial manufacturing and wholesale and retail. We made three acquisitions during the year and in November we completed a successful IPO on Nasdaq First North. Despite significant growth investments, completed acquisitions and the IPO, our profitability remained on a good level.

The number of customers continued to grow and was ca. 6,800 at the end of 2021, compared to ca. 6,100 at the end of 2020. Revenue churn decreased slightly from previous year and was 3.1% of net sales, compared to 3.4% in 2020. Net Revenue Retention (NRR) remained at the same level as in 2020 at 108%.

We focused on new customer acquisition during the year and we gained 31.8% more new customers compared to 2020. At the same time, we developed our organization through additional recruitments and reorganization, e.g. within customer service. We managed to keep customer satisfaction in support services on a high-level (92% on average) throughout the year.

In line with our strategy, we invest heavily in R&D, especially with regards to direct customer needs. One of the big projects was a single-sign-in user management, which we completed in late 2021. We also released two completely new products: WorkIn, a platform solution that allows you to employ a person or get employed, and Regista, which allows a company to define its business processes and integrate them into an ERP system. Our e-commerce solution LemonShop also developed well, supported by both the COVID-19 pandemic and general digitalization.

Through acquisitions, our objective is to strengthen our market position, enter into a new industry vertical or obtain new competencies. In February 2021, we acquired Metsys Oy, which brought us strong expertise in developing demanding WMS solutions. Metsys' customers are large international industrial companies for which a warehouse management solution is tailored to meet their needs. With Metsys, we are now also present in Jyväskylä. The second acquisition of the year took place in June through a asset purchase of Talosofta from Alma Media. Talosofta is specially designed for prefabricated house manufacturers and strengthens our position in the construction industry. With the acquisition we also opened a new office in Oulu. The third acquisition of the year was PlanMill Oy in August. PlanMill specializes in solutions for professional service providers serving domestic and international customers. Our goal is to significantly strengthen our position in this sector.

In 2021, we increased our personnel with almost 50 new Lemonsoft employees, partially through acquisitions. We gained new leadership experience with Jan-Erik Lindfors starting as Deputy CEO in spring 2021. We have shared our responsibilities in a clear way: CEO focuses on product and technology, and Deputy CEO on sales, marketing and customer service.

In 2022, we will continue executing our strategy, which can be summed up in the phrase “for your business”. We develop solutions that help companies improve their own business. Our aim is to continue to grow and to focus heavily on R&D. Developing the competence of our personnel and to help them enjoy their work will also continue to be a priority. I would like to thank our personnel for their excellent work during the past year as well as our new shareholders for their confidence in Lemonsoft.”

Authorizations of the Board of Directors

A maximum of 1,000,000 shares may be issued under the authorization. The authorization is valid until the next Annual General Meeting, but not later than 30 June 2022.

Significant short-term risks and uncertainties

The biggest challenge for our industry is the availability of skilled personnel. To maintain strong growth, Lemonsoft is investing heavily in recruiting new employees with strong expertise. The company's success and opportunities for organic growth depend largely on how well we are able to recruit, motivate and engage more skilled personnel and maintain and develop our expertise.

Possible weakening of the business of Lemonsoft's customer companies could result in e.g. reduced investments by industrial manufacturing companies and the need for subcontracting chains. This would also have a negative impact on the demand for ERP systems, which could slow down the development of Lemonsoft’s new sales and upselling potential to the existing customer base.

Global pandemics such as the Covid-19 pandemic may also have a direct and indirect impact on Lemonsoft’s business. In addition, pandemics may pose business and bankruptcy risks to the Lemonsoft’s customers, which in turn may affect Lemonsoft’s business and cash position. The company constantly monitors the development of the situation from a risk management perspective.

The ERP market is generally a highly competitive market and the industry is fragmented. Smaller players are primarily focused in a specific sector of SMEs and larger players do not compete directly for customers in the same market. However, competition in Lemonsoft's operating markets may intensify due to existing competitors or agile new entrants.

Risks related to information security and the IT systems of service providers are a significant factor affecting the security and continuity of the company's business. Lemonsoft constantly invests in high reliability and high security systems, and strives to ensure the high quality of the services it purchases by selecting leading players in the industry as its key partners. European data protection regulations may also bring unexpected risks to Lemonsoft's operating environment.

Success in acquisitions and related integration work is a key factor for Lemonsoft's growth. The company has made several acquisitions in recent years and also aims to continue to grow through acquisitions. There may be unexpected risks associated with target companies and their integration into Lemonsoft.

Board of Director’s proposal for dividend

At the end of the financial year 2021, the Group's parent company’s distributable funds were EUR 24,120 thousand and the net result of the Group's parent company for the financial year was EUR 4,155 thousand. There have been no material changes in the company's financial position since the end of the financial year.

Lemonsoft Oyj’s Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting that a dividend of EUR 0.13 per share be paid for the financial year ended 31 December 2021, i.e. a total dividend of EUR 2.4 million.

Events after the reporting period

There were no significant events after the reporting period.

Outlook 2022

Lemonsoft's goal is to continue steady growth, both by increasing the number of software modules offered to its existing customer base and by expanding its customer base with new customer acquisition.

Digitalisation and increasing use of ERP systems in Lemonsoft's potential customer base is expected to continue, especially in the construction industry and in industrial manufacturing and logistics. ERP is a key system for management and continuation of a customer's business, based on which customer retention is also expected to remain at the current high level.

Recruitment made in the second half of 2021 will weaken relative profitability in the first half of 2022 compared to the second half.

Profit forecast for 2022

Lemonsoft estimates that the net sales for the financial year 2022 will increase by 23-28 percent compared to the financial year 2021, and that adjusted EBIT will be 30-35 percent of net sales in 2022.

  • Interim Report January – March 2022 on Wednesday 27 April 2022
  • Half-year Report January-June 2022 on Friday, 22 July 2022
