"We are very pleased with our results this quarter," commented Bill Wood, President and CEO of Sylogist. "After a year plus of headwinds from COVID-19, and again from the Omicron variant surge in Q1 and early Q2, we turned a corner in the back half of the 2nd quarter and drove material organic growth. Notably, our organic revenue growth rate rose significantly in Q2, reaching neutral after a number of negative quarters, as projects ramped up and nearly $3 million in additional bookings were signed. We maintained strong profitability, with a 30% EBITDA margin in the quarter, all pointing to our results tracking to plan.


"Based on the positive activity we're seeing, including within our three recent acquisitions, strategic initiatives taking hold, a sizeable and growing backlog, and an aligned, expanded and motivated team in place, we see acceleration continuing and a sight line to organic growth in the high single digits through fiscal 2022, while maintaining the Rule of 40 posture, as we expected."


The Company will host a conference call at 1:00 PM Eastern Time on May 12, 2022. Bill Wood, Sylogist's President and Chief Executive Officer, and Xavier Shorter, Sylogist's Chief Financial Officer, will present the Company's recent financial results and discuss the business' performance.
