At the consolidated level, including the UK entity’s results, the company recorded a turnover of 13.5 million lei and a net profit of 1.5 million lei. The net profit decreased due to the investments made to start the activity on foreign markets.
“During the first six months of the year, we saw high demand for our cybersecurity services and solutions. In Romania, many companies still need awareness regarding the dangers of the digital environment. That’s why our teams run information and education campaigns within these organizations, and the recently concluded partnership with the National Cybersecurity Directorate will play a key role in supporting these efforts. Regarding our UK business, the premises are encouraging, currently having £15.1 million worth of projects in the pipeline, with an average value of around £140,000 per project,” stated Victor Gansac, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Safetech Innovations.
In terms of turnover at the individual level, in the first half of 2023, cybersecurity services contributed 35% to the total turnover, and the implementation of cybersecurity solutions contributed 65%. In the first six months of 2023, the company added seven new clients to its portfolio in Romania.
Within the UK entity, where Safetech Innovations holds a 67% stake, the first half of the year was characterized by intense activity promoting and selling the company’s services locally and signing partnerships. The local company has signed partnerships with 25 potential resellers, two UK and UAE distributors, and around 15 vendors. As of September, this entity will begin providing proof of concept (POC) for Security Operations Center (SOC) services and the mobile security solution in the UK and the Middle East.
