DGAP-News: Nagarro SE / Key word(s): Annual Report/Annual Results
May 03, 2021 - 2020 was an eventful year for Nagarro, a global leader in digital product engineering. While Covid-19 impaired normal life and rattled the global economy, Nagarro prepared and executed the spin-off from the former parent company Allgeier SE, and listed on the stock exchange in December 2020. In the run-up to this major step, the company also unveiled a new brand identity that better reflected the company's ethos and values.
A positive annual result for 2020
Thanks to its diversified base of 750 blue chip customers from 50 countries and the resilient demand for digital solutions, Nagarro performed well despite the ongoing pandemic. Nagarro's revenue grew from €402.4 million in 2019 to €430.4 million in 2020, an increase of 7%. The adjusted EBITDA, a non-IFRS number, grew by 38% from €55.0 million in 2019 to €76.2 million in 2020. "Many of our clients and colleagues faced a challenging 2020", said Cindy Wolf, a Nagarro Managing Director based in New York City. "We were yet able to continue to develop and grow as a company, building new, important digital products and services for our clients".
Listing and new brand identity
Nagarro successfully pursued the plan of splitting from its parent company Allgeier and listing on its own. On December 16, 2020, Nagarro SE got listed in the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange with an initial quotation of €69.00 and closed on December 30, 2020 with an increase of around 32% at €91.00. In the run-up to the listing, Ngarro also introduced a new logo, branding, and website. This was implemented in-house with the company's marketing and design team and underlined Nagarro's friendly, humanistic character.
