Retarus Press Release:
Business figures for FY 2015: Retarus achieves record results
Munich, 23/07/2015 // The Retarus Group continues its growth trend, raising turnover for the financial year 2015 by 21.6% in comparison to the previous year. These figures exceed the company’s own expectations and cement its position as a global leader in the provision of messaging services. Retarus recorded especially strong growth in turnover in the USA.
Retarus, leading provider of cloud services for email, fax, SMS and EDI, can look back on a highly successful business year. The Retarus Group’s total turnover for the year ending 31 May 2015 rose by 21.6 percent to 49.3m Euros. These results show that turnover has grown far faster than the average growth rate in the market and that of its direct competitors, which the European Information Technology Observatory (EITO) set at 4 percent for 2014/15. Along with the successful expansion of business with large customers and the opening up of new markets in Germany, the establishment of Retarus on the international market has also significantly contributed to the positive development in earnings. The income achieved outside Germany has risen to 40.1 percent of total turnover. In the US alone, the company achieved a 56.3 percent growth in earnings.
Global market and large customers power growth
“The two-figure rise in turnover attests to our strategy for growth, which is focused on long-term success. During the past business year we have significantly strengthened our competitive situation and our influence on the international market. We were able to expand our business relationships successfully and intensify our co-operations with existing customers”, says Johannes Hecker, COO at the Retarus Group. “This result exceeds our own expectations. For the current business year we are aiming for even more ambitious targets and are optimistic about outperforming our competitors and our past results once again.”
