MapsPeople adjust ARR expectations for 2023

Closing of 2023 MapsPeople adjust ARR expectations for 2023 to mDKK 52.0 from a range of mDKK 58-64 as
guided in Company Announcement 29 from November 14, 2023. This corresponds to an ARR growth of 64% during

The large renewal mentioned in Company Announcement 29 on November 14th had not materialized by the end of
2023, despite the customer using the service, and MapsPeople is still in dialogue with the customer. This impacts
ARR negatively with mDKK 3.5.

In addition two of our partners reconstructed their business, by closing down the companies and continuing
activities in new legal entities. This leaves MapsPeople contracts difficult to enforce, and these contracts were
planned to be invoiced in December generating additional mDKK 3.2 ARR by the end of 2023.

MapsPeople has decided not to include these contracts in the reported ARR for 2023. MapsPeople is currently
pursuing all options to enforce these contracts to the extent possible. Any positive outcome from these activities
will be accounted for in 2024.

Finally, one large project was delayed to go into production due to issues on the customer side resulting in
difference of invoicing and ARR from December 2023 to 2024. This impacted ARR negatively with mDKK 0.7 in

MapsPeople guidance for 2024

On February 27th the board of directors approved the final budget for 2024 containing growth targets for 2024
according to the company's strategy and accordingly set out guidance for ARR, recognized revenue and EBITDA for

MapsPeople is guiding ARR at the end of 2024 to be in the range of mDKK 72 - 80 corresponding to a growth in the
range of 39% - 54%.
Revenue outlook for 2024 is in the range of mDKK 58-63 corresponding to 44% - 57% growth.
EBITDA outlook for 2024 is in the range of mDKK negative 20 - negative 25.
The improved EBITDA is driven equally by the growth in revenues in 2024 and from the organizational simplifications
and cost reductions carried out in 2023 including reducing the overall number of employees from 131 to 92 in the
past 12 months. This will have almost full impact in 2024 driving a very significant productivity increase per
employee in 2024.

As stated in Company announcement 36 from December 14 2023 the financial plan for 2024 is fully financed with
the capital initiatives completed in Q4 of 2023. Both tranches of the new loans from EIFO have been paid out in
February 2024 as the agreed milestone requirements have been met.

In addition to this, the above mentioned contract renewal stems from the Acquisition of the Point Inside Business,
and as stated in Company Announcement 27 from November 10th, the contract MapsPeople entered gave the
opportunity to adjust the purchase price with any occurred churn of customers, hence a clawback of 50% of the
purchase price equal to 1,570,101 shares has been agreed and initiated.

MapsPeople's Annual Report 2023 is planned to be released on March 19th, 2024.
