London: Thursday 23 August 2018: At today's Annual General Meeting which is being held at the Company's headquarters at 10:00hrs Peter Simmonds, Non-Executive Chairman will deliver the following statement on behalf of the Board to shareholders present:


"As a Company we were delighted to report in our last financial report a 13.7% increase in organic top-line growth and more importantly that through our ability to maintain our gross profit margins we delivered a 22% growth in underlying profitability."


"This outcome was a very satisfactory and solid performance, reflecting our ongoing focus on our higher margin real-time customer data platform (CDP) software , and our hybrid cloud data platform services business which has set us in good stead to deliver year on year growth for the year ending March 2019."


"We are already seeing encouraging returns from our business investment programme; including improvements to our CRM, accounting, management support and reporting systems.  We have also invested in our partner-based sales strategy and, during the year, we will continue to scale up these relationships which will deliver further rewards both this year and in the future."


"Our pipeline of sales opportunities in the UK and internationally is growing and we are very excited by the many opportunities that are presenting themselves.  This was underpinned last week when we were delighted to update shareholders with news that in this first half, we had successfully won several new, and extensions to existing, Data Management and Data Collection contracts in our key vertical sectors (financial services and consumer organisations).  These multi-year projects have been on the back of demand for both our Celebrus software product set and our hybrid cloud data platform services which have seen good traction particularly in the North American and EMEA markets.  This also puts us on track to return to more normalised levels of business weighting for the first half of this current financial year, against the comparable period last year."


"In addition, the Company announced in its final results statement released on 26 June 2018 that the debtor balance owing was £19.5 million as at 31 March 2018, due to the business weighting occurring late in the second half. The Company confirms that it has received payment of the £19.5 million and therefore now has a strengthened cash balance, providing the Company significant flexibility to execute on corporate strategy."


"As a Board, we believe that D4t4 has a clear strategy in place that will allow it to develop and deliver on the opportunities ahead and these will deliver sustainable growth and enable us to achieve our ambitious plans over the coming months and years."


"In summary, the group remains committed to a progressive dividend policy based on the overall performance whilst also balancing its investments for future growth.  Our balance sheet is in good shape, with no debt and the Company remains strongly cash generative.  Combine this with the people, skill set and the flexibility to keep moving forward; the Board remains confident of delivering on its expectations for the year ahead."


"We look forward to keeping shareholders abreast of the exciting developments within the business as we progress through the year and at the time of our Half -year results which will be released in November."
