Through organic growth, new ventures and selective acquisitions, the Group has significantly strengthened its position in the Nordic market.

We are very satisfied with last year's results and especially that we have managed to develop a broad range of services for the Swedish market. There is no guarantee that six companies that have to get to know each other, find ways of cooperating and methods for working with our customers seamlessly across domains, will succeed so well. But we have done so and I am very impressed by that.

Performance in Norway has also been excellent thanks to the ongoing development of the Group’s companies and services. This was boosted by a very good first full year of operation for the start-up company Rocket, which grew from three to ten employees during 2022 and had a turnover of just under NOK 10 million with the bottom line showing positive earnings. This is also something we are very proud of and which once again shows the potency of NOVA's entrepreneurial model.

To underpin its strong growth, NOVA strengthened the parent company's support for its subsidiaries with new functions, in the fields of recruitment and finance among others.

“The organic growth for the Group alone accounted for 22 percent of the total growth of 35 percent, while the EBITDA margin was 11.4 percent. Considering all the investments the Group made in 2022, we are very pleased with still achieving a double-digit profit margin,” says Geir Allan Hove.

2023 is off to a strong start

NOVA has continued to consolidate its business development in 2023 and was able to announce the acquisitions of the Norwegian companies Egde Consulting and Dekode in early January. The Group started 2023 with a turnover rate of well over NOK 800 million and, based on past growth in a normal market, will approach a billion NOK in turnover for the current year.

“Our focus will be on existing markets and particularly on regional growth in Norway,” says Geir Allan Hove, “With Egde Consulting on the team, we have acquired a very good basis for continuing to develop our regional ambitions. In addition, we have also recently established ourselves in Poland, which will ensure access to expertise that will enable us to meet the demand we experience in the Norwegian and Swedish markets.”
