“We are very pleased with what we accomplished in 2022,” said Steve Levely, CEO of Ackroo. “After a very challenging year in 2021 we are very happy to have bounced back and deliver both revenue and significant earnings growth for the business while advancing our operations and technology in the process. We have managed through lots of head winds around things like inflation which has driven both our supplier costs and employee incomes up. We saw lots of people changes both in the company as turnover was higher than previous years and we made changes at a board level to introduce new talent to support us. The capital markets as it relates to tech companies has had a massive impact on investor confidence leading to a very depressed share price where using our public currency to advance our business was not an option. Despite all of these obstacles I am very proud that Ackroo has continued to improve and simplify our operations and hit many of our financial goals. We exceeded our 20% EBITDA goals by achieving a 22% adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue effectively tripling our results from 2021. We then leveraged those earnings to get our EBITDA to debt ratio’s below 3 to 1 while positioning us to close our 12th acquisition at the end of the year. As an industry consolidator it is critical that we continue to maintain this strong financial discipline so I am very encouraged as to what we accomplished last year as it sets the stage for an even bigger result in 2023.”
