Tesserent Limited, Australia and New Zealand's largest listed cybersecurity company, has announced it has delivered a FY22 turnover of $166 million, EBITDA of $18.6 million.

The company is up 94%, and boosted organic growth by a substantial 26%, demonstrating the success of acquisition integration efforts over the past year and cross selling opportunities across business units.

Organic growth of 26% follows continued integration of prior acquisitions and an improved FY22 operating and normalised EBITDA margin of 14.5% and 16.2%, respectively, up 3.3% and 2.0% on the prior year. Tesserent has also recorded a strong cash position of $14.3 million at year end.
