2022 fourth-quarter and full-year revenues
AMA CORPORATION PLC (“AMA”), a pioneer for assisted reality solutions and a publisher and integrator of B2B software solutions for smart workplaces, is reporting its revenues for the fourth quarter and full year in 2022, ended December 31, 2022.

The AMA Group (“AMA”) recorded €4.2m of revenues in 2022 (unaudited and at constant exchange rates), compared with €6.6m in 2021, with revenues linked to its core business, selling the XpertEye software suite, climbing 2% to €2.5m, while equipment sales (connected equipment and glasses, smartphones) contracted 68%. These trends continue to reflect the wait-and-see approach observed for clients and prospects facing a deteriorating economic environment.
AMA generated these 2022 revenues with more than 490 clients (as many as in 2021), primarily major groups in diverse sectors, including Merck, Alstom, Air Liquide, Boehringer and KPMG.
AMA has continued to work with its main large clients and welcomed 115 new accounts on board in 2022. 87% of the 15 largest clients in 2020 and 2021 (representing more than 50% of bookings) renewed their contracts or placed new orders in 2022. Nevertheless, AMA recorded a reduction in the average basket for its clients, which face an uncertain economic environment leading them to defer or scale back their investments in the short term, and to renew their connected equipment less frequently.
The level of orders signed during the second half of the year was down 9% from the second half of the previous year, and therefore lower than expected, although the fourth quarter of 2022 recorded an 11% increase compared with the third quarter of 2022.
Recognized and increasingly innovative technology
AMA has continued to innovate, launching versions of its assisted reality solution XpertEye each quarter with a range of new features. In 2022, the most significant developments included the “On & Live” feature, making it possible to launch a connection in one click, the possibility to record calls and conferences, the higher quality video, the possibility to combine up to four different video streams and the strengthening of bandwidth management, a key area of expertise for AMA. A number of connected devices were also added, along with new languages (Arabic, Indian, Thai), with a total of 20 languages available.
AMA won the Enedis Innov’2022 award. The XpertEye solution was selected by ENEDIS, France’s leading manager of the public electricity distribution network, from among 200 innovation projects, to make day-to-day life easier for its after-sales service operators, with an environmental, technological and social focus. The XpertEye solution makes it possible to accelerate installation times for electricity meters, reducing the trips to be made by installers and increasing client satisfaction.
XpertEye also continues to be widely adopted in the medical, emergency and relief sectors. It is currently used by more than 40 departmental fire and emergency services to adapt emergency facilities and improve interventions and care for victims.
Continued business development and cost optimization strategy
Operating in a more demanding market, AMA is adapting its strategy with agility to open up new sources of growth by:
Alongside this, AMA has reduced its costs and cash consumption by around €400K per month compared with the monthly average from the first half of 2022 with a view to having a financial structure that is better adapted to the current situation on its market.
