May '14
Kronos Incorporated announced that it has surpassed $1 billion in annual revenue. Breaking the $1 billion threshold comes weeks after Blackstone and GIC invested in Kronos alongside original investors Hellman & Friedman and JMI Equity in a transaction which valued the company at $4.5 billion.
"Kronos is delighted to join the exclusive group of software companies that have grown beyond $1 billion in annual revenue and the first vendor to do so in the workforce management market. Through innovation and focus on delivering tangible value to our customers, we are now a global enterprise software company with a significant cloud footprint," said Aron Ain, Kronos chief executive officer.
"With our amazing 3,800+ employees; diverse customer base; and the significant investments we are making in the cloud, vertical market expertise, global expansion, and our award-winning products, our future have never been brighter."

Kronos revenue for the quarter increased to $248.7 million. Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) increased to $80.5 million.
