The company’s gross profit is $65,230,000 in 2021, compared to $43,437,000 in 2020.

The company's profit for the financial year has also grown, from $9,620,000 in 2020 to $17,590,000 in 2021.
The report also notes significant events that took place during this financial year to contextualise the report's findings.
In October 2020, IBM Corporation, the parent entity, revealed its intention to separate the Managed Infrastructure (MIS) until of its Global Technology Services segment into a new public company, Kyndryl Holdings.
IBM Corporation subsequently signed an Asset Purchase Agreement and sold its MIS business to Kyndryl New Zealand in September 2021.
Further, in November 2021, Kyndryl Holdings and its subsidiaries left the IBM group of companies and registered as a separate independent entity on the New York Stock Exchange.
This resulted in IBM Corporation completing the separation of its MIS business held in the Kyndryl companies globally.
IBM NZ engaged the services of PricewaterhouseCoopers as the principal auditor compiling its latest financial report.
