Trading Update

Significant organic growth, results in line with expectations

Castleton Technology plc (AIM: CTP), the software and managed services provider to the public and not-for-profit sectors, is pleased to provide the following update on trading for the year ended 31 March 2018 ahead of the announcement of its full year results.

The Company is pleased to announce that results for the year are expected to be in line with expectations with revenue of not less than £23.1 million and adjusted EBITDA* of not less than £5.0 million, representing continued double digit organic growth.  Cash generation in the period was strong, resulting in operating cash conversion of approximately 100 per cent. of adjusted EBITDA*, facilitating a continued reduction in the Company's net debt.

The Group expects to announce its preliminary results in June 2018.

Dean Dickinson, CEO of Castleton, said: "I am pleased with the progress that Castleton has made during the year, recording significant organic growth in both revenues and profit, underpinned by excellent cash generation. The Group has also achieved a number of key operational milestones, notably the delivery of our integrated product suite on two milestone contracts, significant multi-year contract wins and the acquisition of Kinetic Information Systems Pty Ltd, enhancing our existing operations in Australia's growing Community Housing sector."

"The market opportunity remains large and given the Group's now established position as a 'one stop shop' serving the social housing sector, the Board is very optimistic about the Group's continued growth prospects."
