Trading Update

 

i-nexus Global plc (AIM: INX), a provider of cloud-based Strategy Execution software solutions designed for the Global 5000, provides an update on trading for the year ended 30 September 2019.

 

·    As indicated in the July 2019 update, the Board expects Total Recognised Revenue ("TRR") for the year to be below original market expectations

·    However, the Board expects both the EBITDA loss and the Loss for the Year to be in line with expectations as a result of careful cost management

·    Pleasingly, in the reported period the group benefitted from a substantial increase in upsells to existing clients, which has helped offset slower than expected new deal conversion, in addition to the previously reported customer churn

·    In September 2019 two additional products were soft launched; Pulse and Advisor, designed to improve data entry and strategic insight for customers

 

The Board expects to report TRR for FY19 of approximately £4.8 million (FY18: £4.7 million). Careful management of the rate of investment in the second half of the year means the Board expects to report EBITDA and PBT in line with prior market forecasts at a loss of approximately £4m and £4.2m respectively.

Period end cash & cash equivalents are expected to be £1.5 million (FY18: £6.9 million). High levels of anticipated customer renewals in the first half of FY20, combined with a continued focus and close monitoring of costs, mean the Board is comfortable with its current cash reserves. However, the Board will continue to monitor cash spend closely and take action if budgeted levels of Revenue for the current financial year are not achieved.

The Company exited the year with Monthly Recurring Revenue ("MRR") of £340k (FY18 £335k). MRR from upsells within our existing client base during the year were in excess of ~£35k, which compares favourably to the FY18 upsell total of ~£10k. This improvement also supports the Company's expectation that an increase in service revenue provides opportunities to add incremental MRR within existing accounts, driven by the work of the customer success team.

The Company expects to announce results for the year ended 30 September 2019 in early December 2019.

Simon Crowther, Chief Executive, of i-nexus Global plc, "As already reported, a combination of factors have resulted in sales being weaker than originally anticipated, leading to a disappointing revenue result. While this is frustrating, we have taken swift remedial action and, as a result, delivered EBITDA in line with our prior expectations.

"Careful investment and considered strategic initiatives on many other fronts have considerably strengthened all aspects of the business. Of particular note, advancements in our product, our Channel Partner programme and our increased reach within our existing client base are very positive."
