The Group reports its strongest ever half year trading performance, continuing to enjoy ongoing buoyant demand, and thus maintaining a healthy order book of £22.0m going into the second half. The business also made progress in the second year of our five-year strategic plan, with both organic investment in new product development which is destined to deliver revenue growth in the future, and as valuations start to normalise, actively engaging with a number of M&A opportunities. The Group reports revenues of £21.3m (H1 FY22: £12.6m), up 69.6% at a headline level and up 62.5% on a constant currency basis. H1 FY23 benefitted from the delivery of £3.5m of orders largely in the Entertainment segment, which were deferred from FY22 as outlined in our trading update on 27 September 2022.
With supply chain challenges of last year diminishing, Vicon successfully stepped up volume delivering most of the opening order book whilst at the same time booking new orders in the first half of £19.8m, including Vicon’s largest ever deal for our new Valkyrie system, thus building the current orderbook to £22.0m. We expect this order book to be largely delivered through the second half. The Group also reports an improved Adjusted PBT* of £4.1m (H1 FY22: £0.3m), with the increase largely driven by delivery of the revenue performance whilst absorbing some inflationary cost pressures compared to the same time last year. The Group has a strong balance sheet with net cash position of £63.6m as at 31 March 2023 (H1 FY22: £19.6m) and continues to be debt free.
Oxford Metrics are well placed to deliver a performance for the full year ahead of current market expectations in this year of opportunity and growth.
