PRE‑CLOSE TRADING UPDATE AND NOTICE OF RESULTS

 

Blancco, a leading global provider of mobile device diagnostics and secure data erasure solutions, is today issuing a pre-close trading update for the year ended 30 June 2017.

 

The Board is pleased to report that the positive Revenue momentum reported at the interim results has continued through the second half of the year.  For the financial year ending 30 June 2017, revenues increased approximately 40% over the prior year, approximately 30% in constant currency, in line with market expectations.

 

However, cash flow and net cash are below market expectations due to the non-payment of £3.5m of receivables, the majority undertaken in the prior year.

 

Taking a prudent approach to these receivables we have decided to provide against them by taking a charge of £2.2m, resulting in Adjusted Operating Profits of not less than £5.5m and Adjusted EBITDA of not less than £7.0m (subject to fully closing the accounts and audit).

 

This reflects the Group's intention to apply a more prudent approach to revenue and income recognition on this type of contract in the future.

 

The Group will be announcing its final results on Tuesday, 3 October 2017.  An analyst briefing will be held at 09:00 at the offices of Tulchan Communications, 85 Fleet Street, London, EC4Y 1AE.

 

This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 ("MAR").
