Cegal ended 2023 with a turnover of NOK 1.9 billion (NOK 1.6 billion in 2022) and delivered an impressive 15% revenue growth, underpinned by robust performances across all business units.

Our pro forma adjusted EBITDA margin reached 18%, demonstrating robust and profitable growth showcasing our operations' resilience and efficiency.

CEO Dagfinn Ringaas at Cegal summarizes: “Cegal's products and services meet several of the trends in the energy sector. The strongest is pervasive digitization, and that more companies are now working with more energy sources. Keywords for digitalization are cloud services, a stronger focus on cyber security, data collection with analysis, reporting, and visualization, as well as the use of artificial intelligence (AI). These are areas where Cegal stands strong.”
