Claranova reported FY23 adjusted EBITDA growth of 27.5%, slightly ahead of our forecast and within its guidance range. PlanetArt profitability dipped as cost inflation outweighed revenue growth, Avanquest saw strong revenue and profit growth, helped by the recent acquisitions of PDF Forge and ScannerApp, and myDevices unexpectedly achieved break-even. Claranova continues to target a 10% EBITDA margin in FY24, although this is partially dependent on the success of restructuring in PlanetArt. We are reviewing our forecasts.
