Revenues related to our consulting business and contract business are in line with the plan. It is important that we stay on track with the consulting segment and the contract business as they will be difficult to catch up on later. However, the delivery times for products in the traditional IT infrastructure business are still very long, which affects our Q1 results. But I feel completely confident that we will make up for the shortfall in the product business during the year as the order intake remains strong.

• The revenue amounts to 22.3 MSEK (27.8 MSEK for the same period last year). Currently, the delivery times are around 10 months in the relevant areas. But I estimate that by H2 2023, finally after the pandemic, we should be back to previous levels of 6-8 weeks from order to delivery. It’s important to emphasize that this applies to specific areas within the product/solution, not the entire product/solution business! We have taken measures to ensure the planned product volume on an annual basis. One important measure is that we are reviewing which manufacturers have delivery capabilities and directing sales towards them. We have also established partnerships with a few new suppliers who have the capability to deliver and meet the high standards we have set for the architecture we want to build modern platforms upon.

• Since the component shortage occurred, we have compensated by expanding the consulting team in our operations. Fully offsetting the revenue impact with that business is not feasible, and it requires time to reach optimal profitability due to the 1 to 3-month timeframe required to establish consulting assignments with each recruit. Over the year, we have grown in terms of turnover by 20% compared to Q1 2022.

The annual recurring revenue (ARR) from our ongoing operations is experiencing a 1.5% growth, reaching 6.6 MSEK (6.5 MSEK for the same period last year).

• The gross margin for the ongoing operations is increasing by 28.7 percent, reaching 50.8 percent (39.5 percent).

• Our EBITDA stands at 394 TSEK (2.6 MSEK). It is important to note that these comparative figures include a significant order we received in Q1 2202, which resulted in a notably high EBITDA. When considering the full year, we anticipate an overall increase.

• The group’s earnings per share for Q1 2023 amounts to -0.40 SEK (0.82 SEK for the same period last year).

• We have dealt with a dispute during the period. CGI has filed a lawsuit against us for trademark infringement. This ongoing dispute has adversely affected our financial results in the current period. However, we anticipate a positive resolution soon.


We are now AIXIA. The world is changing, and so are we. The digital transformation is happening faster than ever before, and there are increasing demands for security, speed, and accessibility. We are changing our name, but our foundation remains the same. The company is still characterized by our dedication, curiosity for innovation, and tomorrow’s technology. With our expertise and committed employees, we continue to think differently and question old norms. My conviction is that if we don’t evolve, we will be left behind. That is what makes us who we are.

AIXIA symbolizes our constant drive to challenge ourselves and dare to challenge the status quo. We aim to be leaders in our fields and pave the way forward. We are confident in what we do, and we continue to build our knowledge house.

AIXIA is a combination of the terms AXIOM and AIXI. AXIOM represents self-evident truths and universally accepted principles. It symbolizes our reliability and strong foundation in principles on which we build our solutions. AIXI, a model capable of learning and making decisions in infinitely complex environments. It inspires our new name through its significance. It reflects our focus on optimizing outcomes for our clients and adapting to their needs.

With our new brand, we strengthen our position both locally and globally. We are now AIXIA.

It is evident that AI has become a prominent topic in the public discourse, especially with the rise of ChatGPT and Microsoft’s investment. The discussions revolve around the potential of AI and the associated risks. Aixia had the privilege of participating in the EU conference on AI and sustainability, where various aspects were addressed, including the future role of AI, ethical considerations, and the global perspective of efficiency, competition, climate, and sustainability. Aixia plays a significant role in these discussions, thanks to our extensive experience in the field.

Over the years, Aixia has been actively engaged in various aspects of AI, like analysis, proof of concept, implementation, as well as development and maintenance. Our expertise and competence span the entire lifecycle, positioning us as one of the industry leaders.

Aixia democratizes with AI.
Since 2017, Aixia has been delivering all versions of NVIDIA’s DGX platforms. We have designed, implemented, and delivered some of the largest AI-focused data centers in the Nordics. NVIDIA’s DGX platform provides a fully supported hardware and software stack, enabling companies to focus on creating value instead of spending time building, testing, and configuring complex infrastructure. Aixia recently invested in its first DGX H100 unit. We will make the DGX H100 available to anyone interested in testing and evaluating this groundbreaking technology through our self-developed AI orchestration software, AiQu.

During the past quarter, Aixia has continued to empower businesses with AI solutions, enabling them to achieve greater efficiency and cost savings. Our intelligent tool for orchestration, resource, and data management, AiQu, facilitates successful implementation of AI projects across various industries in Sweden.

In our collaborations with clients, we have worked closely to understand their business goals and identify opportunities for improvement through AI. Recognizing the importance of change management, we have prioritized setting milestones and gradually introducing new work methods, taking into consideration the potential impact on employees.

Our initial focus areas for clients include automated quality control of various products and the establishment of image repositories for future product documentation. Aixia’s goal is to democratize AI and make it accessible to a broader range of businesses by offering AI as a Service, where we handle everything from data center management to applied AI.

Our vision for the ”Automated Quality Control” projects is to seamlessly integrate AI into our clients’ production processes, ultimately providing the following benefits:

Increased capacity: By automating quality control, we aim to enhance the processing capacity of products, pave the way for further automation, and enable our clients to handle larger volumes of items for resale and reuse.

Improved quality: By leveraging AI for quality control, we will ensure consistent assessment of used equipment, resulting in fewer returns, increased customer confidence, cost savings, and enhanced customer satisfaction. This will strengthen our clients’ brands and market positions.

Enhanced decision-making: AI-powered data analysis and insights will make it possible for our clients to make better decisions based on validated data, optimize processes, and effectively address challenges, further driving efficiency and growth.

Improved adaptability: AI solutions will enable our customers to quickly respond to changing market conditions and customer needs, fostering agility and flexibility in their business operations.

By focusing on the business value that AI can provide, Aixia is committed to helping companies revolutionize their operations and achieve their strategic goals.

Aixia manages the entire ecosystem from data to wisdom. From thought to reality. From idea to applied solution! That’s why we are a leader in AI.

To summarize, I would like to say that we are temporarily affected by long delivery times in products/ solutions, but as I mentioned earlier, we have planned for this. In terms of revenue and results, it will be affected during Q1 and Q2 of this year. But since the order intake is on track, we should compensate for it in the second half of the year. Additionally, the comparison figures ”compared to the same period last year” can pose a challenge as significant product deals may occur in different quarters. However, when looking at the entire year, we do not feel any concerns. We continue to build a stable and high-quality delivery organization around consulting services and contract revenue. In Q1, we have increased costs for lawyers in connection with the litigation process with CGI, as well as expenses for the name change. We continue to build our knowledge hub and follow our long-term plan.
