TRADING UPDATE AND NOTICE OF RESULTS

 

Regenersis, the global provider of electronic repair, diagnostics and data erasure software, issues this trading update in advance of its results for the year ended 30 June 2015, which will be announced on 22 September 2015. 

Notwithstanding Sterling's continued strength through the reporting period, the Group's profitability in the financial year to 30 June 2015 will be in line with market consensus. 

Depot Solutions achieved in reported Sterling and in constant currency, growth in revenue and headline operating profit in the year just ended.   However, post the year end, Depot Solutions has been notified, following a competitive tender process in which the Group participated fully, that one of its larger clients intends to consolidate its European business with another supplier which is anticipated to adversely impact Depot performance in FY2016.  This reflects an ongoing consolidation trend in the sector, of which Depot Solutions has been a beneficiary in recent years.

Blancco (currently reported within Advanced Solutions) achieved year on year sales growth of 27% in its first full year as part of the Group, driving headline operating profit growth in constant currency terms of approximately 45%. The Group will report Blancco separately from the rest of Advanced Solutions at final results and going forwards, reflecting its increasing importance to the Group.

Given the above, the Board believes the outlook for FY2016 is for modest growth in headline operating profit, with strong growth in the Advanced Solutions and Software activities offset by a reduced contribution from Depot activities.  During 2016, the Board will focus on actions to maximize shareholder value.
