9-month figures clouded by the corona pandemic - new incoming orders give cause for optimism


NorCom Information Technology GmbH & Co. KGaA achieved total output of EUR 8.3 million in the first nine months of the current financial year (2019: EUR 10.0 million). EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) was EUR 0.1 million at the end of the third quarter (2019: EUR 0.7 million).

The business figures show the effects of the Corona crisis, which in particular still affects NorCom customers from the automotive industry.

Business development

In the automotive industry in particular, the corona crisis was noticeable very early on, and in the automotive market, which has been characterized by uncertainty for months, sometimes complete stops when placing orders. Correspondingly, NorCom's business areas were affected at an early stage. This slump, which was already evident in the figures in the second quarter, also shaped the figures in the third quarter.

In the current situation, it has not yet been possible to compensate for the loss of orders: Generating new business has hardly been possible in the past few months. The economic situation is still characterized by uncertainties and companies are hesitant to make new investments.

The public area is an exception here. NorCom's customers in this area proved to be crisis-proof. In the last few months, the collaboration here has continued without a hitch or only with minor restrictions.

Strategy & implementation

NorCom has taken extensive measures to react to the changed market conditions. Internally, all expenses were put to the test as part of a cost-cutting program and any potential savings were used immediately.

In sales, there was a concentration on public customers, who are a stabilizing factor in business during the crisis. NorCom has participated in a number of public tenders in the last few months and has so far won two new customers:

In November, for example, NorCom was awarded a lot for the tender from the Hessian Center for Data Processing. The contract relates to services from NorCom for HZD in the area of ​​MS SQL Services and will initially run for two years with two options for renewals.

Also in November, NorCom was awarded the contract for a project at the Federal Audit Office called “Dafit”. Here NorCom advises and supports the Federal Audit Office on the topics of data management, data analysis and artificial intelligence (AI), which are being implemented in four sub-projects. The current framework agreement runs for two years and the expected total volume is in the mid six-digit range.

A central measure in the third quarter was the merger of the two software products EAGLE and DaSense to DaSense2020. By merging the two products, development can be bundled in a meaningful way. NorCom is creating a modern AI platform that combines data management with data analysis in a new way.

NorCom is thus offering an attractive cross-sector and cross-topic product that enables further diversification. The aim is to enter industries that are currently facing digitization. NorCom currently sees potential here, particularly in the areas of insurance, real estate and lawyers / auditors.


“In the fourth quarter, the focus is on the marketing of DaSense2020,” explains Viggo Nordbakk, Managing Director at NorCom. “The aim here is to win joint projects with pilot customers or to acquire new customers together with a specialized partner in order to develop branch-specific products based on DaSense2020. We have already started the first projects in the new areas. "

Even if the first successes of the strategic measures have been achieved, for the full year NorCom expects lower sales of € 10.6 million compared to the previous year (previous year: € 11.9 million). At € 0.1 million, EBITDA is also expected to be lower than in the previous year (€ 1.9 million).
