Trading Update and Notice of Interim Results

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 six-month period to 30 September 2018 ("HY2018").

The Company is pleased to announce that revenue and EBITDA* for HY2018 have grown organically in excess of 10% and support a full year performance in line with market expectations.

Operating cash conversion in the period was strong, facilitating a continued reduction in net debt from £6.3m as at 31 March 2018 to £5.3m as at 30 September 2018.

During the period, the Company obtained shareholder approval for a capital reduction process which, subject to Court approval, will give the Company the ability to make distributions to shareholders.

The Group expects to announce its results for HY2018 on 6 November 2018.

Dean Dickinson, CEO of Castleton, said:

"I am very pleased with the progress Castleton has made in the period and, as such, the Group remains on course to meet expectations for the full year. Our financial performance, along with a number of significant milestones previously reported to the market, including the acquisition of the Financial Modelling Solution platform licence and securing a significant new Managed Services contract with Dumfries and Galloway Housing Partnership, represent a period of continued success and illustrate that we continue to deliver against our strategy. We remain very confident about Castleton's future prospects."

*Earnings for the period from continuing operations before net finance costs, tax, depreciation and amortisation.
