Performance of INVL Technology’s business holdings
The businesses that INVL Technology owns and manages had aggregated revenues of EUR 21.7 million in the first half of this year, 19.5% more than in the same period of 2021. Their gross profit shrank 3.3% in the period of comparison to EUR 5.7 million, while their aggregated EBITDA was EUR 0.1 million and decreased 93.4%. The businesses’ performance was impacted by higher wage costs and weakened sales in foreign markets.

With the end of travel restrictions, INVL Technology’s companies are investing in active sales in foreign markets. “We think we’ll return sales in international markets to the pre-pandemic level already this year. Grounds for that are provided by contracts we have newly signed and are in the process of signing,” said Kazimieras Tonkūnas, INVL Technology’s managing partner.
International contracts that INVL Technology’s businesses have concluded this year include climate change monitoring, digital registries, consulting governments on digital transformation, and cyber security projects in countries such as Sint Maarten, Ghana, Dominica, Trinidad and Tobago, Rwanda, Egypt, Ghana, Bangladesh and Botswana.
“Higher fees for new contracts in Lithuania and new contracts abroad will have a positive impact in the second half of this year and next year,” INVL Technology’s head noted.
INVL Technology’s companies operate in three directions. The company NRD Cyber Securityworks in the area of cyber security, the Novian group of companies works in the area of software and IT infrastructure services, and NRD Companies’ businesses work in business climate improvement and e-governance.
