Comment from CEO Anders Gran
The fourth quarter was a strong quarter for Twiik. Our total turnover increased by 60% compared to the same quarter last year, which in itself was a record quarter. It has also been a quarter where we purposefully looked inward to create the best conditions for growth going forward.
Autumn has in many ways been challenging for both consumers and those who run gyms and training facilities due to steeply rising costs and high unpredictability. Despite uncertain times, we have continued to grow and expand our customer base. In many ways, we have also deepened our existing customer relationships through new projects. We act in a changing market, which benefits the players who move quickly and work close to the customer. Developing our technology platform together with our customers is an important part of our strategy – both to create the world's best platform and strong customer relationships.
During the third and fourth quarters, we have continued our path towards a positive cash flow, while at the same time continuously taking important market shares. Part of the work has consisted of analyzing our various revenue streams and prioritizing them primarily based on cash flow rather than revenue growth and increased market share. Based on the work done so far, we see clear potential in working more actively with customer projects and increasing our investments in our own products and services, such as the corporate challenge TeamBoost or our Christmas calendar that was tested during the quarter.
When it comes to customer projects, we have received a positive response with several exciting projects in the starting pits. The projects cover several parts of the platform such as gamification, lead generation and marketing. The development takes place in harmony with our overall platform at the same time as it is validated directly on the market.
Our own products have the strength that they can be sold both directly to customers and via gyms and trainers who get a turnkey product to sell to their customers. As a platform and ecosystem, we are in a unique position to develop content and digital products with good opportunities for wide distribution. TeamBoost is a natural starting point, but we have also started work on other formats for digital training products – exciting work with the potential to make a real difference in 2023.
At the end of the year, we carried out a rights issue, fully guaranteed by our major owners and us in management. The capital gives us momentum forward and the opportunity to continue developing the world's best digital training platform. I would like to thank all shareholders for their trust and look forward to having you along on our continued journey.
I am also happy and proud of the team at Twiik who, together with our fantastic customers, are building the digital training of the future.
Anders Gran, CEO
