Press release 19 March, 2020

Transcendent Group, present in 8 European markets, is affected by the decisions taken by the respective governments and authorities with the purpose of limiting the spread of the corona virus. In order to proactively address the effects of the increased uncertainty, the management of Transcendent Group has today decided to initiate actions in order to adapt costs to the new business environment.

The measures include 3 components;

  • Establishments in new geographical markets are postponed, and no new market entries are planned for 2020
  • Further product development within RegTech (digital GRC services) is put on hold, and focus will be directed to sales initiatives in the Nordics supporting the existing products RFA and RFA Monitor, and the launch of two additional fully developed products in the near term
  • An overall review of costs, including revised fixed and variable remuneration, reorganisation of group functions and certain staff reductions

Martin Malm, CEO of Transcendent Group, comments:

“Today’s decision is an outcome of our analysis of how the business environment is affected by covid-19, and with these measures we are creating an increased room for manoeuvre, and the right preconditions to be able to continue to deliver to our clients. However, we stay alert and have established a steering group with special focus on monitoring the development and analysing various scenarios in order to take further actions, should the situation deteriorate.”
