Koblenz. CompuGroup Medical SE & Co. KGaA (CGM), one of the world's leading e-health providers, achieved excellent progress across all segments in the second quarter of 2023. According to the quarterly results announced today, group revenue increased by 15 % to EUR 304 million and adjusted EBITDA increased by 36 % to EUR 73 million, corresponding to an adjusted EBITDA margin of 24 % (previous year: 20 %). Organic revenue growth stood at 13 %, driven by the TI connector software upgrade and by excellent growth in the hospital business due to increasing revenues in relation to the Hospital Future Act. Excluding TI, organic growth reached 5 %, thus fully in line with mid-term targets.
Free cash flow in the first six months of 2023 increased to EUR 83 million (previous year: EUR 28 million). CGM confirms its guidance for 2023 with expected organic growth in group revenues of around 5 %. CGM expects an adjusted EBITDA in the range of EUR 260 to 300 million.
CGM launches AI Initiative
CompuGroup Medical has launched an initiative in the second quarter to further extend the usage of Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning and large language models across the group. While already today several of CGM’s products and solutions are relying on AI based functions, there is significant potential for AI to shape and change the healthcare IT sector in the coming years. The new AI technology will be integrated into relevant areas and processes, from software development towards support processes, including customer service functions and administrative tasks.
“After a strong second quarter and first half, we are confirming our full year 2023 guidance.” says Michael Rauch, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of CGM. “We see significant potential in AI to support our customers, doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, and healthcare practitioners serving patients ever better.”
Dynamic growth across all segments
Second quarter revenues in the Ambulatory Information Systems rose by 4 % to EUR 127 million (previous year: EUR 123 million). Organically, revenues grew by 2 %, mainly driven by a strong US business development.

In Hospital Information Systems, revenues increased by 9 % to EUR 76 million in the second quarter. Recurring revenues increased by 11 %, representing 68 % of total revenues.
