AGM Statement


Kape (AIM: KAPE), the consumer security software business, will be holding its Annual General Meeting at 12.00pm today.


At the meeting, Don Elgie, Non-executive Chairman of Kape, will make the following statement:


"I'm pleased to report that Kape has made a strong start to the financial year with trading in-line with expectations. We have seen significant progress across the business, with customer subscriber number growth exceeding management expectations.


Ongoing progress continues to be made in further developing Kape's SaaS revenue base, which now services 945,000 subscribers, up 14% since December 2018, with visibility over revenues of approximately $33.5 million across future periods.


As we close the first quarter of 2019, we have experienced substantial growth across our VPN subscriber base, with both Zenmate and CyberGhost generating over 65% growth in mobile subscribers. This excellent performance highlights the continued strengthening of our global brand, the impact of our targeted customer acquisition initiatives as well as the growth in the wider privacy-first market.  The real need for users to both protect and control access to their private data is now becoming a primary concern for many.


We are also pleased to report that, post the integration of both Zenmate and Intego, both are benefitting from access to Kape's internal business intelligence systems and digital marketing engine, enabling new user growth and expanding their market reach.


Kape continues to trade in line with management expectations and remains committed to delivering strong levels of organic growth alongside executing on strategic acquisitions."
