Financial Reports

The Access Group

The Access Group reported its full-year results with revenue growth of 43%; pro forma revenues were £685 million. On a statutory basis, revenue was £618m, up 59% YoY from FY21. Organic revenue growth was 17% vs 10% in FY21. It completed the acquisition of 20 companies during the year.

Chris Bayne, Chief Executive of The Access Group, said, “We are greatly encouraged by the strong performance across the Group, in a year in which revenues, profits and customer numbers all increased significantly.

“Amid a year of highlights, the key moment came towards the end of our financial year in June 2022 when we completed the largest ever private equity investment in the UK. We secured a further commitment from our principal shareholders, Hg and TA Associates and welcomed GIC as our 3rd strategic investor. We also secured new debt investment with our lending partners, including a new acquisition facility which gives us more power to add new technology and people to the group.

“Access’ organic recurring growth of 21% demonstrates that our customers trust Access to bring them the software and solutions they need as they move into a post-pandemic period that is bringing further economic challenges.

Bayne continues, “We see APAC as a significant opportunity for Access, and in less than three years, we have shifted from no operations in the region to growing the business to over A$200 million pro forma revenue, supported by the key acquisitions in FY22 of Definitive, FastTrack and Vincere. We’ve grown to have over 1000 employees in the region currently, all focused on executing our expansion plans.”


Intuit announced financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2023, which ended October 31. Total revenue rose to $2.6 billion, up 29%, including 13 points from the addition of Mailchimp. Small Business and Self-Employed Group revenue rose 38% to $2.0 billion. That excluded Mailchimp revenue of $264 million, and the Small Business and Self-Employed Group revenue grew 19%.

Sasan Goodarzi, Intuit’s Chief Executive officer, stated, “We had a strong first quarter as we innovated and delivered on our strategy to be the global AI-driven expert platform powering prosperity for consumers and small businesses. We continue to see proof that the benefits of our financial technology platform are more mission-critical than ever to our customers in an uncertain macro environment.”

Michelle Clatterbuck, Intuit’s Chief Financial Officer, added, “While we are pleased with first quarter results, we shared earlier this month that Credit Karma experienced continuing deterioration across all verticals in the last few weeks of the first quarter. Despite this impact to Credit Karma, we are reiterating operating income and earnings per share guidance for fiscal year 2023.”
