DANIR GROUP YEARBOOK
This year’s theme is stability and drive – that which creates success for our companies and security for our employees.
A message from Johan & Andreas
A year of outstanding drive and heroism
The year has been marked by the terrible war in Ukraine and the impact it has had on our colleagues and friends who live and work there. But with a carefully planned business continuity plan, hard work and great commitment they managed to have a successful business year. We are truly impressed by that. It is also impressive how well all our other holdings have developed during the year. This is good for both our companies and our employees.
Within the group, various fundraising initiatives have been launched that have raised millions of Swedish kronor for the Ukrainian cause.

SIGMA SOFTWARE AND THE WAR IN UKRAINE
A careful plan, meticulous preparation and exceptional drive
In the dawn hours of 24 February 2022, the unimaginable happens. Russia invades its neighbouring country Ukraine, the homeland of Sigma Software and the majority of its 1,900 employees. This is the start of a period of terrible suffering and triggers the largest wave of refugees in Europe since World War II. What follows is a tragedy and a sadness for the civilised world.
THE DANIR GROUP’S DEVELOPMENT
Our best year so far
Organic growth of 27% was the main explanation for the close to SEK 3 billion increase in turnover and our 1,600 new full-time employees. Despite the costs associated with driving this organic growth, earnings increased significantly. Despite the war, our Ukrainian subsidiary group had strong growth.

Revenue, growth and result
*The consulting business consists of Sigma, Nexer, A-Society, PION and Aptio.
Figures for 2022 are based on the latest available forecast and may therefore differ slightly towards actual outcomes. This applies to all 2022 figures in this yearbook. Nexer and Sigma are both reported pro forma for the period of 2017-2020. The number of employees refers to full-time equivalents of December. Some employees, primarily in Poolia, work part-time so in total the Danir Group has approximately 15,000 employees. In addition, the Danir Group engages 2,600 sub-consultants. Nov 2022: 1 SEK is 0,096 USD.
*Compound Annual Growth Rate.

Numbers, ball sense and confident, effective baseline play
Many of us are connected to him in some way, but not all of us have had the pleasure of meeting him. Neither on nor off the “court”. So, meet Niclas, our CEO since September 2021, and get a little insight into who he is and what drives him.
Within our larger subsidiary groups, we see continued development and organic growth that is hard to beat.

With a long-term approach, entrepreneurship and our sights set on the future, we continue our growth journey
Our entrepreneur-driven and decentralised leadership plays a major role in the success and organic growth of our subsidiary groups. We let the local drive and energy create our success and that is what makes us stable, reliable and strong. Both as a group and as an employer.
Our additional holdings
Drive, innovation and entrepreneurship at their best
Danir is heading for a record year and, in addition to our larger subsidiaries and their companies, we have a number of additional holdings which have also played a part in the great year we’re now putting behind us. Common to all of them is the energy and innovation our teams demonstrate when it comes to new ideas and driving their businesses forward.
The willingness to help where we can and where it is needed most
We have many long-term commitments that stretch far beyond the business world. Where the goal of our involvement is to help and make a difference. And if we can help correct an injustice or imbalance that exists in our society, we make sure to do so. The will to help is always there, whether it’s on our doorstep or on the other side of the world.
