Alithya President and CEO Paul Raymond said, “We are very pleased to report record quarterly revenues and gross profit generated in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2021. We also finished the year with record bookings, and numerous new clients, reflecting our well-established reputation as a trusted advisor in digital transformation. These are extraordinary accomplishments, in extraordinary times, and that positions us favorably going into Fiscal 2022.”

“On the heels of our newly gained increased scale, our vision continues to drive our long-term strategic plan, initiated in 2018, and Fiscal 2022 should see us continue on our committed path of profitable organic growth and quality acquisitions,” added Raymond.

The acquisition of R3D Consulting also added two 10-year contracts that will add approximately C$600 million in the confirmed backlog as of April 1, 2021. (See Alithya Group Inc stock analysis on TipRanks)
