CFO comment

David Deacon discusses the Preliminary Results for the financial year ended 30 September 2020.

The Group reported revenue of £30.3m (FY19: £35.3m) and an Adjusted PBT* of £2.6m (FY19: £5.5m) despite the unprecedented market conditions. 

The segmental revenue analysis illustrates that all market segments were affected and from a geographic standpoint, the USA market suffered more than most, down £5m compared with last year.

We continued to improve the quality of our earnings by increasing our Annual Recurring Revenue (‘ARR’) to £6.8M (FY19: £6.2m). This growth was achieved by our Yotta subsidiary, which signed £1.0m in new ARR during the financial year (FY19: £1.0m).

The Company had £14.9m in cash as of 30 September 2020 (30 September 2019: £13.8m) having paid a final 2019 dividend of £2.3m (2018: £1.9m). The Group remains debt-free.
