“We are very happy with the year over year growth and the continued strengthening of our business,” said Steve Levely, CEO of Ackroo. “Despite the capital markets struggling and the general economy in a volatile place our business continues to improve on many fronts. We are half-way through the year and have already exceeded 2021’s EBITDA results and are now back to our 20% EBITDA as a percentage of revenue we were at in 2020. We increased our cash position, delivered record gross margins, increased our average recurring revenue per location and reduced our cost to acquire. We have continued to clean up legacy technical debt from previous acquisitions that allowed more migrations to occur and better prepare us for the next acquisition we do. We have stabilized and expanded our POS offerings leading to growth from both of these solutions while also slowly increasing our Payments business revenues. We finished the quarter making several operational changes inside and outside of the business to better structure and align ourselves which has us poised for much bigger growth and earnings contributions in the quarters ahead.”

Ackroo also announces the resignation of Paul Hart as CFO of Ackroo effective immediately. The Company would like to thank Paul for his contributions to the Company and wish him the best of luck with his future endeavors.
