In 2023, Unisys (NYSE:UIS) held a 1.8% year-over-year (YOY) increase in sales, both reported and adjusted for constant currency. This signifies that, despite macroeconomic adversities, there is a stable market for the company’s offerings. With a non-GAAP operating margin of 7% for the year, the business demonstrated its capacity to control expenses while accelerating sales growth.

Furthermore, the adjusted EBITDA margin demonstrated solid bottom-line levels at 14.2%. In 2023, Unisys had an impressive 96% renewal rate for contracts with a total contract value (TCV) of $1 million or more. This is an indication of very satisfied and devoted customers. Hence, the constant contract renewals give the business a stable source of income, bolstering its coffers and expanding its prospects.

In 2023, Unisys’ New Business Total Contract Value (TCV) increased by 18% YOY. This demonstrates the company’s ability to extend its clientele and penetrate new markets. The 19% YOY boost in the new business pipeline is evidence of the company’s capacity to spark opportunities and enthusiasm among potential customers. Overall, the solid growth in new business signings and pipeline development positions Unisys well for top-line growth and market expansion.

PagerDuty (NYSE:PD) saw a 16% YOY increase in sales in fiscal 2024, totaling $430.7 million. Similarly, revenue increased by 10.1% YOY to $111.1 million in Q4 alone. This stable increase in income shows that the business can draw in new clients, build its market lead, and create a growing demand for its services.

Further, PagerDuty has seen a considerable increase in operating profit; non-GAAP operating margin increased from 1% to 13.1% in 2024. Hence, this illustrates the business’s operational sharpness and capacity for profitable growth.

Moreover, the number of clients with an annual revenue of over $100K increased to 804 in 2024, a 7% YOY boost. Similarly, the business saw a quarter-over-quarter doubling of yearly net new additions to the cohort of consumers paying above $100,000. This demonstrates PagerDuty’s accomplishments in growing its market lead among high-value clients and breaking into the enterprise sector.

Finally, this pattern suggests that PagerDuty’s revenue growth prospects are favorable, as the enterprise market generally provides larger margins and longer-term revenue commitments. Therefore, these fundamental progressive elements will boost the company’s market valuations in upcoming quarters.

Moreover, against obstacles like the Christmas season’s effect on take rates, PagSeguro posted an impressive 10% YOY increase in top-line in Q4 2023, ending the year with about R$16 billion in revenue.
