Sylogist Announces 22% Organic Growth and 32% EBITDA Margin for the Quarter, Releases Year-End Audit

Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - March 23, 2023) - Sylogist Ltd. (TSX: SYZ) ("Sylogist" or the "Company"), a leading public sector SaaS company, is pleased to announce its audited financial results for the three and 15-month period ended on December 31, 2022. In November 2022, Sylogist announced a change in its fiscal year end from September 30 to December 31, and is now releasing financial results for a transitional 15-month fiscal year.


"Sylogist produced record organic growth while maintaining strong EBITDA margins," commented Bill Wood, President and CEO. "Deliberate strategic investments and a focus on execution have driven total organic growth to 22% in the quarter, or 17% on an FX-adjusted basis. Revenue expansion in the quarter was driven by growth within our two most recent acquisitions, increased SylogistMission ERP installs and upgrades, and broad-based gains across the business. In doing so, Sylogist has continued to drive profitability, maintaining a 32% EBITDA margin this quarter. We are focused on continuing to execute on our organic growth initiatives, driving momentum, and creating long-term shareholder value."


As announced previously, Sylogist will host a conference call at 9:00 AM Eastern Time (today, March 23) to discuss the Company's financial results and the progress on its strategy. Interested parties are invited to join the call at 1-800-319-4610 (Canada/USA Toll Free) or 1-416-915-3239. A recording of the conference call will be available on the Company's website afterwards.
