21 Oct 2021

Claranova confirms its status as a technology leader by advancing to 6th place at the 11th edition of France’s TOP 250 French software publishers event organized by EY and Numeum. Over the past three years, the Group has gained no less than eight places in this ranking, from 14th place in 2019 to 10th place in 2020, and now this year to 6th place.

 

The robust growth profile of Claranova’s business portfolio has helped establish the Group among the market’s historic leaders of the French software publishing sector such as Dassault Systèmes, Ubisoft or Sopra Steria Group. With a 56% increase in revenue over the period, including 22% at constant scope[1], Claranova significantly outperformed the panel comprised of 269 software publishers (+9.1% in revenue compared to 2019). The Group maintained its track record of strong growth in FY 2020-2021 with revenue of €472 million, up 21% at constant exchange rates, accompanied by a twofold increase in operating profitability.

 

In this 11th edition of the TOP 250 ranking, Claranova also maintained its 2nd place in the “Retail customers and Video Games” category and consolidated its position as a leading technological player in the B2C segment[2]. With tens of millions of users in more than 15 countries, Claranova also boasts a unique international dimension with 95% of its revenue generated outside of France compared to 59% for the other publishers in the panel.

 

With a global, diversified and international offering, Claranova has rapidly established itself among France’s Top 10 software publishers and will maintain its growth momentum with a target for €700 million in annual revenue by 2023 and an EBITDA margin above 10%[3].
