Origo delivered excellent performance in 2021. For us, 2021 was a year of new emphasis where we encouraged our teams to be more independent, worked hard to make the product offering stronger and more focused and increased our focus on business development and marketing. The Company's revenue increased 6.6% during the year and earnings improved significantly, with the EBITDA margin rising to 8.8% from 6.3% in the prior year. Many of our segments are now performing very well. Our investment in Tempo is at an exciting juncture and it is instructive to follow the company through a phase of significant expansion.
We took the first steps towards sharpening Origo's social focus in the second half of 2020, and it is clear that the Company can make a significant contribution when it comes to gender equality, fostering innovation, environmental issues, and the health and well-being of employees. The product of this discussion is also to put technology and society at the forefront of the Company's strategy. Better tech - better life.
