Möglingen, November 19, 2015 – USU Software AG (ISIN DE000A0BVU28) increased its sales (IFRS) by 15% to EUR 16.0 million in the third quarter of 2015 (Q3 2014: EUR 13.9 million). This growth results primarily from consistently strong license business for software products in Germany and abroad. Given the only slight expansion of the cost base, USU increased its earnings significantly. USU’s EBITDA therefore climbed by 14% to EUR 2.0 million (Q3 2014: EUR 1.8 million).
IT service management software “made in Germany” is more powerful than most international competitors. That has been confirmed by Pink Elephant, the globally acknowledged and accredited assessor of the ITIL® licensor AXELOS, which has awarded the new PinkVERIFY™ certificate to USU Valuemation 4.5. Pink Elephant has certified USU Valuemation 4.5 in accordance with ITIL® 2011, the latest edition of the ITIL® best practices. USU AG was awarded the “PinkVERIFY™ 2011” certificate for the maximum possible number of 15 ITIL® processes on July 16, 2015. There are currently only 8 vendors worldwide whose tool has been certified for 15 ITIL® processes. USU AG is one of the few European vendors to offer software, consulting on implementation and support from a single source in the DACH region.
Möglingen, August 20, 2015 – USU Software AG (ISIN DE000A0BVU28) generated an 11% increase in consolidated sales according to IFRS to EUR 15.9 million in the second quarter of 2015 (Q2 2014: EUR 14.3 million). This increase was chiefly due to the strong international business, which contributed sales of EUR 5.7 million (Q2 2014: EUR 4.0 million) to consolidated sales in the quarter under review and accordingly posted an above-average rise of 42% year on year. The share of sales generated outside Germany in relation to the USU Group’s total sales thus amounted to 36% in Q2 2015 (Q2 2014: 28%).
