May 14, 2021 - Nagarro, a global leader in digital engineering and technology solutions, today stated its unaudited financial numbers for Q1 2021, its first whole quarter as an independent company. Demand was strong for Nagarro's services, while supply was significantly constrained by hiring challenges in a hot jobs market. Revenue grew to €115.7 million, up 4.3% YoY from €110.9 million in Q1 2020, and up 6.2% QoQ from €108.9 million in Q4 2020. Gross profit reduced slightly to €34.1 million from €35.0 million in Q1 2020. Gross margin reduced to 29.4% from 31.5% in Q1 2020. Adjusted EBITDA grew 26.4% YoY to €18.6 million (16.0% of revenue), up from €14.7 million (13.2% of revenue) in Q1 2020.

 

EBITDA grew 18.0% YoY to €17.3 million, up from €14.7 million in Q1 2020. EBIT grew 27.6% YoY to €11.8 million, from €9.2 million in Q1 2020. Net profit increased by 27.2% YoY to €7.7 million against €6.0 million in Q1 2020. The cash balance reduced by €8.6 million from December 31, 2020 to €99.2 million, primarily due to payment towards spin-off and listing liabilities of €6.0 million and acquisition liabilities of €3.4 million.  

“This quarter was notable for our upgrade of the hiring processes, and we eventually demonstrated our ability to sign on new talent at a fast clip,” said Manas Fuloria, co-founder and Custodian of Entrepreneurship in the Organization. “We added over 1000 professionals in this quarter, net of attrition. While a portion of these are fresh graduates to be trained further, these volumes reflect both our improved hiring operations and our confidence in the demand outlook. The company retains its guidance for 2021.”  

The company will offer an earnings call today (May 14) at 2 pm Central European Summer Time, which is 8 am in New York City and 8 pm in Singapore. The telephone dial-in numbers for audio and the URL for the online presentation can be found below and here.
