Chief Executive Officer, Peter Herweck said:

“AVEVA delivered a solid set of results in FY22 as the business recovered following disruption caused by the Covid pandemic. During the year we made good progress with the integration of OSIsoft and have recently launched integrated products that will drive further revenue synergies. I am excited about the opportunities ahead of us as AVEVA enables the connection and digitalisation of the industrial world. We are focused on accelerating growth in Annualised Recurring Revenue and expect AVEVA’s growth rate on this metric to significantly improve.”

Notes

1 On 19 March 2021, the Group announced the completion of the acquisition of OSIsoft, LLC (OSIsoft) enhancing AVEVA’s ability to accelerate the digital transformation of the industrial worldTo provide a better understanding of the combined comparative trading performance and to improve transparency, non-statutory results are also shown for the combined Group on a pro forma basis. The Directors believe that the pro forma results give helpful insight into the performance of the Group and form a basis from which to consider the outlook.

Pro forma results include results for both AVEVA and OSIsoft for the 12 months to 31 March 2022 and the 12 months to 31 March 2021. In addition to this, the results have been adjusted to exclude the effect of the deferred revenue haircut under IFRS 3 (Business Combinations), which reduces statutory revenue.

2 ARR makes it easier to track recurring revenue progression by annualising revenue associated with subscription, cloud and Maintenance contracts. It removes timing differences caused by revenue recognition standards by annualising the revenue associated with contracts at a point in time. It is calculated on a constant currency basis.

3 Organic constant currency revenue and adjusted EBIT excludes a currency translation reduction of £42.5 million to revenue; and adjusts for the disposals of the Acquis Software, Termis Software and Water Loss Management Software businesses in June 2021 by removing the results of the disposals from each reporting period.

4 Adjusted metrics are calculated before amortisation of intangible assets, share-based payments and exceptional items. Adjusted Earnings Per Share also includes the tax effects of these adjustments. See note 1 Basis of Preparation.

5 Statutory results include the results for the combined AVEVA Group for the 12 months to 31 March 2022 compared to the results for AVEVA Group and 12 days of OSIsoft ownership for FY21.
