Trading update

The half year sales to 31st May 2008 finished broadly in line with management's expectations at £1.9m up 10% on the previous year (2007: £1.73m). At the period end, cash balances exceeded £500,000.

The second quarter of the financial year saw sales increase by 20% over the first quarter, as we began to see the results of the increased sales resource introduced at the beginning of this financial year. However, as a consequence of investing in the sales resource the first half loss is likely to be slightly greater than the previous year. 


Due North has already benefited from the investment through a win of the South West Centre of Excellence representing 51 councils. Additionally they have renewed for a further 3 years their e-sourcing contract for the majority of the UK's police forces. Software as a service is finding increasing support and both MS2M and Due North are well placed to benefit from this trend. Our sales teams are in discussions with significantly more potential customers than this time last year with total order value potential some 2.4 times greater than at 31st May 2007. Our success in converting these prospects will be the key driver of the year's outcome.

Our next update will be on 6th August when our interim results are announced.
