EBITDA was €203 million, also a record level, and up 18% from Q3 22. Visma now has 1.6 million customers in Europe and Latin America, up 18% year over year. At the end of Q3, Visma’s Annualized Repeatable Revenue (ARR) reached EUR 2.2 billion, an increase of 24% year-over-year. These numbers were helped by the 8 acquisitions it made during the quarter.
Merete Hverven, CEO of Visma, commented, “It has been another eventful quarter for Visma, with continued growth and geographic expansion. Our positive development is driven by a combination of increased sales to existing and new customers, acquisitions of high-quality software companies and prudent cost management.

Craig Halliday, CEO of Unanet, said, “Customers choose Unanet because we understand their needs and adapt our solutions for them, rather than the other way around. For too long, this industry was stuck in low gear as the legacy providers skimped on innovation and service, but Unanet has come along to change that. Quarter after quarter, we take customers from the legacy providers and earn recognition for our successful business practices.”
The company revealed no numbers around these results, neither revenue, ARR growth, nor even the number of customers it attained.
