Intercede is a leading provider of identity and credential management software,

 Year End Trading Update


Further to the Trading Update issued on 8 January 2014, Intercede is pleased to confirm that the Group has delivered on the execution of its business strategy for the financial year ending 31 March 2014.


The Group's financial targets were to deliver a 30%+ increase in sales whilst accelerating investment in people and resources to take advantage of the opportunities provided by the impact of smart phones and global cyber security concerns.


Following a strong end to the year, pre-audit indications are that revenues will be ahead of expectations and in excess of 40% higher than the prior year as Intercede continues to experience high levels of demand for its proprietary MyID identity and credential management technology, with notable contract wins secured in the telecommunications, aerospace & defence and public service sectors.


Cash performance also continues to be strong with an increase in net cash from £6.8 million to £7.2 million year on year, notwithstanding a 30% increase in headcount and the impact of the recently announced share buyback programme in support of the new Intercede Share Incentive Plan.


Richard Parris, Intercede Chairman & Chief Executive, said: "We are delighted to report record sales, substantially ahead of the challenging growth targets we set for ourselves for the year. This performance reflects an increasing recognition by major organisations throughout the world of the critical importance of protecting the digital identities of their IP, assets and digital content. At the same time, we continue to strengthen our market position in new and emerging areas of digital security, giving us even more confidence for the future. I look forward to providing further detail when we announce the full year results."   


As in prior years, Intercede intends to announce audited financial results for the year ended 31 March 2014 during the early part of June.
