WANdisco plc: Preliminary unaudited results for the year ended 31 December 2016
David Richards, Chief Executive Officer and Interim Chairman of WANdisco, commented:
“Over the past year, as the Big Data and Cloud markets have continued to expand, we have seen global enterprises increasingly require the ability to move large volumes of data at speed across both on-premises and cloud environments. WANdisco Fusion is the only solution available in the world that enables the replication of continuously changing data, whilst guaranteeing this data is continuously available, consistent and delivered with zero business disruption.
“As a result of this significant expansion in our core Cloud markets, our total bookings increased by 72% during 2016 and 97% in Q4 2016. Our OEM with IBM, as well as our other channel relationships, have been central in driving new business, by enabling us to take advantage of this market opportunity whilst reducing our operational cost base throughout the year. This has resulted in a $11.2m reduction in overheads and a halving of the EBITDA loss from 2015 to 2016 bringing us much closer to cash flow breakeven.
“We continue to build on this momentum with a strong new business pipeline which, combined with a significantly reduced cost base together will further underpin our progress towards profitability.”
A webcast of our results presentation will be available on our website later this morning: https://www.wandisco.com/investors.
