ATLANTA, January 23, 2019 – LeaseQuery, a leading provider of comprehensive lease accounting software, announced another year of record growth in 2018, with its year-over-year revenue growth reaching 708 percent. The company’s extraordinary growth was propelled by the timeliness of LeaseQuery’s solution, as companies prepare to comply with new standards for lease accounting.
The new standards, released by the Financial Accounting Standard Board (FASB) and International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), require companies to put nearly all leases on their balance sheets, which significantly shifts the way companies prepare financial statements.
By providing a reliable solution to more than 500 companies for this critical challenge, LeaseQuery has seen its revenue, employee base and brand recognition grow greatly.
“2018 was another year of remarkable growth for LeaseQuery. With the deadline for public companies to adhere to the new lease accounting standards fast approaching, our solution is a critical component of helping them comply,” said George Azih, LeaseQuery chief executive officer and founder. “We grew our employee base phenomenally this year, and every employee has been key to building a best-in-class solution to a serious challenge.”
Without the proper tools and expertise, companies struggle to comply with the new standards. A LeaseQuery retail client with 100 locations and more than $1.3 billion in annual revenue recently stated, “My favorite aspect of LeaseQuery is that time-consuming tasks can now be done with the click of a button. Required disclosures are now automatically included through generated reports.” According to Azih, this is the exact reason that companies rely on LeaseQuery and is what has fueled its explosive growth.
The Atlanta Business Chronicle recognized LeaseQuery as Atlanta’s fastest growing technology company. Additionally, LeaseQuery was voted as one of Atlanta’s best places to work in the medium-sized business category.
Additional 2018 milestones include:
