Wolters Kluwer Set To Push On in 2022

Michael Field, CFA Senior Equity Analyst

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Michael Field, CFA |

Wolters Kluwer has over the past decade or so undergone a wholesale reorganization of its business, taking it from being the leading print publisher of professional information materials to being one of the largest players in the potentially much larger digital information services space. This change has come at a cost, however, with the company spending over EUR 2 billion on net acquisitions over the period in order to position itself better in the digital information services market. Wolters’ legacy print business, which is declining at a high-single-digit rate each year, has proved to be a drag on the overall business, with organic revenue growth improving to 4.3% in 2019, the highest level in over a decade, while the proportion of print revenue fell to a new low of 8% in 2021.
