Note: 2012 figures include the effects of the restatement announced on September 19, 2013, for further details please see appendix 1. The US print monitoring business was divested in June 2012.

Comment by Cision CEO Peter Granat:
“As expected, growth in 2013 has been proven difficult to maintain due to the short term impact of the divestment of the US print monitoring business carried out during the second half of 2012. Revenue during 2013 has been stable quarter by quarter with a slight increase in the fourth quarter. The cash flow throughout 2013 is the best cash flow Cision has presented in recent history and has helped to reduce the net debt significantly.
With our transformation as a “digital first” business nearly complete, we continue to increase the share of revenue from subscription sales through continued investments in product development and increased user adoption. Investments have been made during the year to improve the CisionPoint architecture and we have also made significant investments in sales and marketing in the later half of 2013 which we are confident will help us grow in 2014. With our new global executive team in place, our focus for 2014 will be to effectively act on the key aspects of our business and manage our teams to meet our strategic objectives.
Social media and content marketing have elevated the role that public relations professionals play in the overall marketing mix and that presents a great opportunity for Cision. We will continue to invest in our software platform to retain our existing customer base as well as take share in the PR market. We are committed to providing our customers the tools they need to improve efficiency, increase their publicity and track their corporate reputation.
With the US print monitoring divestment behind us and improvements made to our financial processes and procedures, I am looking forward to focusing on growing our customer base in 2014 as well as offering more services to existing customers.“

How can you become a winner? In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan will present a methodical approach to guide the holistic adoption and enablement of IoT implementations. This ov...
