On Thursday, May 19th, ArkivDigital’s annual shareholders’ meeting was held at the company headquarters in Lyrestad, Sweden. The number of shareholders who attended the meeting represented nearly 70% of the outstanding shares.

All board members, Jan Aronson (Chairman of the Board), Paul Johansson and Häkan Skogsjö were reelected. Jonas Backlund was appointed as a substitute board member.

All the financial numbers for 2015 pointed in the right direction. Net sales increased by 16 percent to nearly 24 million Swedish kronor. Profits were nearly 2.9 million Swedish kronor, an improvement of 2.4 million compared with the previous year. The number of subscribers increased 5 percent to nearly 26,000.

Mikael Karlsson, managing director of ArkivDigital, highlighted the most recent developments at the board meeting. The All-in-one subscription, launched in early April, has already become very popular and the number of subscribers is nearly 7,000. The subscribers who have chosen to subscribe or upgrade to the All-in-one subscription have access to our two latest name searchable indexes: Population of Sweden 1880-1920 and Population of Sweden 1960. New registers of various types will be added to the All-in-one subscription in the future.

Along with index development, the company has continued to focus on photographing new records at a record pace. During 2015, nearly 7 million images were added to the database and at the end of the year more than 57 million images were in the online digital archive. Around the end of April and beginning May 2016, ArkivDigital reached another major milestone: 60 million images!
