SUSE Delivers Strong Q4 Performance
SUSE is pleased to announce a strong close to its financial year ended 31 October 2022, which is expected to lead to full year Adjusted Revenue and profitability in line with guidance. Overall trading was robust in Q4 with ACV higher than our guidance, reflecting an in-line performance in our Core business and a strong performance in our Emerging business.
For FY22, SUSE expects to report an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 36-37%, at the top of its guidance range, demonstrating SUSE’s disciplined approach to cost control amidst ongoing macroeconomic uncertainty balanced with continued investment in growth.
For FY23, given the growth outlook in SUSE’s markets, its competitive position and disciplined approach to investments, SUSE expects to deliver Adjusted Revenue growth of 11-13% at constant currency, with reported growth around 2 ppt lower based on current exchange rates. SUSE also expects Adjusted EBITDA margin expansion from FY22.
SUSE will publish its full Q4 FY22 results and FY22 Annual Report on 19 January 2023.
