Sylogist Reports Strong Q1 Fiscal 2022 Results and Record Revenue

Revenue Up 32%, Growth Accelerates, Dividend Declared

Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - February 9, 2022) - Sylogist Ltd. (TSX: SYZ) ("Sylogist" or the "Company"), a leading public sector SaaS company, is pleased to announce its unaudited financial results for the first quarter of the 2022 fiscal year, ended December 31, 2021.


"We are pleased that our investments in organic growth and scalability are gaining traction," commented Bill Wood, President and CEO of Sylogist. "Although somewhat impeded by the COVID-19 Omicron variant surge, we began deployments on the new awards we announced in November 2021 and revenue from these projects will largely be recognized in subsequent quarters of this fiscal year as we anticipated. Expenses were in line with plan and we continue to be successful in attracting key talent to increase capacity. Our M&A execution also continues to create value, with the integration of our recent Pavliks and Mission CRM acquisitions proceeding ahead of schedule. With lead activity building and a strong pipeline, we are just beginning to realize the upside on our growth investments."
