1Adjusted EBITDA refers to underlying operating profit before depreciation, amortisation, non-recurring costs and share based payments.

2Adjusted Earnings per Share excludes amortisation of acquired intangibles, non-recurring items and share-based payments and replaces the reported tax credit with a notional tax charge at the full rate of corporation tax.

3Adjusted operating cash flow is before non-recurring items.

4Net debt is the sum of cash less bank balances, bank loans and overdrafts and other financial liabilities. The Finance Review provides a breakdown of net debt for the current and prior periods.

 

Highlights

·      Trading results in line with the equivalent period last year

·      Recurring revenues remain high at 87% of total revenue (H1 FY16/17: 86%)

·      Strong operating cash flows as a result of positive working capital movements of £2.3m , reflecting success of initiatives to improve billing accuracy and cash collections

·      Net debt reduced by £6.2m over the six month period

·      The Board has been strengthened following the appointment of Chris Jagusz as Chief Executive Officer in October 2017

·      Remedial plan implemented with a significantly enhanced finance team and financial controls now in place

·      Optimisation of the cost base with a  reduction in headcount and the closure of an office and third party data centre

·      Strategic moves to support the customer trend toward cloud-based compute, storage and services

·      Trading in the period was in-line with the Board's expectations and the outlook for the Group is encouraging

 

 

 

Chris Cole, Non-Executive Chairman, commented:

"Over the last six months we have focused on improving operating cash flows, reducing net debt and right-sizing the cost base of the business.   We have made excellent progress in all of these areas: 

·      During the first half of the financial year, operating cash flows exceeded adjusted EBITDA by £2.3m, representing a cash conversion of 125%.  This has been achieved as a result of a significant improvement in the invoicing and collection processes.

·      Net debt at 30 September 2017 stood at £33.3m, representing a £6.2m reduction over the six month period.

·      Actions taken to reduce operating costs with the full effects of cost savings to be realised in the second half of this financial year.  

A year has now passed since the announcement of the accounting misstatements.  Over this period the Board and the Company's employees have worked tirelessly to get the business back on to a "business as usual" footing.

The Chief Financial Officer, Peter Brotherton, has been in place for a year now.  Over this time he has rebuilt and strengthened both the finance team and the financial systems and processes within the business.  He and his team are engaged in all areas of the business and this is evidenced in the results for the first six months of the financial year.

In October 2017 the Board was further strengthened by the appointment of Chris Jagusz as Chief Executive Officer.  Chris brings with him a wealth of sector and managerial experience.  Now that the business has been stabilised, Chris's focus will be entirely forward looking.  He has already started work on refining the strategy of the business and driving top line revenue growth."

Chris Jagusz, Chief Executive Officer, commented:

"I am delighted to have joined the Company.  Despite the significant problems encountered as a result of the accounting misstatements, the business is fundamentally strong.  Its product offering is well aligned to the demands of customers, it has a strong and loyal recurring revenue customer base and the business is cash generative.  The issues surrounding the accounting misstatements have  been addressed and so my focus is on providing the business with a clear strategy to enable the business to grow."

Half Year Review

For the Six months to 30 September 2017

 

Results and performance

The Group's results for the period are in line with the equivalent period last year. Revenue was £51.4m, very similar to last year, and EBTIDA was £9.1m, £0.2m ahead of last year. Cash flows for the period were strong resulting in a net debt reduction of £6.2m. New appointments together with the merging of the billing and credit control teams have had a positive effect on cash collections and debtors ageing.  

The financial performance of the business is covered in detail in the Finance Review. Key highlights include:

·      87% of the Company's revenue is recurring in nature

·      The business is profitable, delivering an adjusted EBITDA margin of 17.7%

·      The business is cash generative and working capital is tightly controlled

·      Strengthened balance sheet with net debt reduced by £6.2m

This is an extremely good base on which to build.

 

Cost reduction

During the period we undertook a review of the Company's cost base.  Our review focused on two areas:

·      Rationalisation of property portfolio

During the period, we consolidated our data centre customers meaning that we were able to vacate one of our third party data centres and allow the lease to lapse.  This yielded annualised savings of £0.5m.

We closed our London office during the period and transferred the relevant staff to our Shoreditch data centre.  Annualised savings of £0.3m were made as a result.

·      Staff restructuring

As part of the restructuring exercise, a headcount reduction of 20 was achieved, resulting in annualised savings of £1.2m

The combined effect of these measures is that £2.0m has been removed from the Company's annualised cost base. Some of these costs have been reflected in the results for the period but the full effect will be realised in the second half of the financial year.

 

New strategic initiatives

H1 FY17/18 has seen the development of several strategic initiatives for the Company building on its strong foundations in a health sector market in transformation, and the continuing transition of customers' computing workloads to the cloud.

-       Health and Social Care Network Peering Exchange

The new Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) provides a reliable, efficient and flexible way for health and social care organisations to access and exchange electronic information. In January 2017 Redcentric announced it had been awarded the prestigious multi-year contract for the Peering Exchange at the core of the HSCN, and it has now been implemented. All accredited service providers to the public and private health sector will interconnect their networks at the Peering Exchange, putting Redcentric at the heart of the HSCN community.

-       HSCN Consumer Network Service Provider

All NHS organisations are required to buy their connectivity from HSCN. In May 2017 Redcentric became the first commercial provider of the legacy NHS National Network (N3) to become accredited to provide HSCN connections. This builds on the Company's strong position as a connectivity provider direct to commercial health organisations and the community of independent software vendors supporting them, and opens up new markets selling direct to the NHS.

 

-       Hosted Collaboration Solution

The Redcentric Hosted Collaboration Solution (HCS) provides customers with messaging, voice and video communications to improve their agility, application integration and control in an affordable and flexible way. HCS can be overlaid as an additional service on Redcentric's connectivity solutions for commercial and health sector customers, enabling, for example, collaboration across complex large NHS organisations and between multiple health and social care agencies.

-       Services for Crown Hosting customers

The Crown Hosting Service is data centre colocation specifically for the UK public sector. It provides a Government-accredited rapid route to the cloud avoiding technology and vendor lock-in. Redcentric will enable public sector organisations to accelerate their use of Crown Hosting with connectivity, design, implementation, migration, monitoring and management services for customer-owned infrastructure in Crown Hosting data centres. Other Redcentric services available to Crown Hosting customers include HSCN, Database-as-a-Service and managed Microsoft Azure Stack.

-       Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS)

As a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider and Amazon Web Services Partner Network Consulting Partner, Redcentric helps its customers create and implement sophisticated cloud strategies which can blend systems and services on-premise, at Redcentric data centres and in the Azure AWS public clouds.

 

Dividend

While the Group's cash generation has improved, the Board has decided that it is not appropriate to pay a dividend in respect of the half year ended 30 September 2017. The Board would keep the matter under review and would give guidance on our dividend policy when the full year results are announced in June 2018.

 

Board

In October 2017, the Group announced the appointment of Chris Jagusz as Chief Executive Officer. Chris has over twenty-five years of experience in the telecoms and managed services industry, during which time he has built a track record of delivering growth and business transformation.

In June 2017, the Group appointed Stephen Vaughan to the Board as Non-Executive Director. Through his career, Mr Vaughan has held a number of executive and non-executive roles focused on the technology sector. Until 2015, Mr Vaughan was Chief Executive of Phoenix IT Group plc, the main-market listed IT Infrastructure Services business.

 

Summary and outlook

We are pleased with the performance of Redcentric in the first half with results in line with the equivalent period last year. Good progress has been made in improving operating cash flows, reducing net debt and right-sizing the cost base.  Operationally the business has continued to add new customers and increase its share of wallet from existing relationships, in line with our growth strategy.  As Redcentric returns to a normal financial footing, focus now turns to resuming revenue growth supported by a strong track record and a product portfolio well-suited to address demand from mid-market businesses in the UK.  The Board believes that the outlook for the Group is encouraging.

 

Prior year comparatives

The prior half year comparative numbers for the 6 months ended 30 September 2016 have been restated from those issued and presented in December 2016.  At the time these numbers were released, the forensic review had just been completed.  Further to this review, all of the Company's subsidiaries' accounts were re-audited resulting in additional adjustments, the Indian operation was correctly accounted for as a subsidiary rather than a branch and errors in the group consolidation were eliminated.  The prior year comparative figures are presented on a consistent basis with the audited figures for the full year ended 31 March 2017. The detail of the prior year restatement is as per note 15.

 

Finance Review

 

Revenue

Revenue for the six months to 30 September 2017 was £51.4m, a very slight reduction of £0.5m on the equivalent period last year.

The Company's prime focus is on recurring monthly revenues ("RMR") but product and service sales are undertaken to support the recurring revenue base. Product and Services revenues can fluctuate from period to period.

The key revenue metric of RMR was in-line with the equivalent period last year and accounted for 87% of total revenue (H1 FY16/17: 86%).

Overall, adjusted operating costs for H1 FY17/18 were £0.4m (1.9%) higher compared to the equivalent period last year. Management have been focused on improving the operating cost base of the group and significant actions have been taken with the full annualised benefit to be effective in the second half of the year.

Office and data centre costs were down on the equivalent period last year reflecting the closure of the London office and a third party data centre.

On 30th September 2016, the Company disposed of its fibre network to City Fibre and now pays a monthly rental fee for use of certain parts of the network. This has resulted in an increase in network and equipment costs.

Savings have also been made in other sales, general and administration costs, achieved by reducing the number of third party consultants in the business and a tighter control of marketing and corporate costs. In addition selective headcount reduction has been made which has resulted in employee cost savings.

During H1 FY17/18, the Company moved its Indian service centre to larger offices to facilitate potential expansion.  The additional costs associated with these larger offices account for most of the increase over H1 FY16/17.

Overall, the level of non-recurring items has decreased from £3.7m to £1.3m.  The key movements are as follows:

 

·      Professional fees associated with the forensic review and FCA investigation

These costs relate to legal and forensic advice received in respect of the ongoing FCA investigation.

·      Integration and restructuring costs

The integration costs relate to the integration of the City Lifeline acquisition which was undertaken in January 2016.

Following the forensic review, the Company undertook a cost reduction exercise and one off redundancy costs were incurred as a result.

·      Non recurring impairment of trade debtor balances

Following the audit of the 31 March 2017 annual results, a further debtor impairment charge was taken in H1 FY16/17.

·      Sale of metro ring to City Fibre

On 30 September 2016, the Company disposed of its fibre network assets.  This led to a one off loss on disposal of £0.3m in H1 FY16/17.

During H1 FY17/18, the Company received an interest payment of £257k in respect of historical supplier overcharges dating back to the period 2006 to 2011.  This interest income is therefore non-recurring in nature.

The higher interest payable costs in H1 FY17/18 reflect the higher level of debt throughout the period and the increased interest margin payable following the RCF restructuring undertaken in April 2017.

The share based payments charge for SAYE schemes increased in the period due to the number of employees within the scheme.

Taxation

Current tax for the six-month period represents the best estimate of the average annual effective tax rate expected for the full year, applied to the pre-tax income of the six-month period. Deferred tax is calculated based on the expected annual outturn.

The charge to the condensed consolidated statement of comprehensive income reflects;

i)             The revenue attributable to City Lifeline which has no trading losses with which to offset.

ii)            Overseas tax paid via Redcentric Solutions Private Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Group incorporated in India.

iii)           Movement in the deferred tax asset on temporary differences. £1.2m of deferred tax assets have not been recognised at 30th September 2017 (£1.1m at 31st March 2017).

 

 

Earnings per share and Dividends

Basic adjusted earnings per share for H1 FY17/18 was 2.5p, compared to 2.5p in H1 FY16/17. Diluted adjusted earnings per share for H1 FY17/18 was 2.4p compared to 2.4p in H1 FY16/17 (see note 9).

In September 2016 a final dividend of £4.4m in respect of the year ended 31 March 2017 was distributed to shareholders.  No dividends were paid during H1 FY17/18.

Working capital movements

Working capital movements total £2.3m, of which £2.5m relate to trade debtors, accrued income, deferred income and other debtors. This resulted in cash conversion in the period of 125% compared to 77% in the prior period.

Improved control of billing and collections has resulted in the positive working capital movement.

The resolution of legacy debt issues has also led to a significant improvement in the ageing of trade debtors with a significant reduction in debtors aged > 90 days.

 Trade creditor days were 25 at 30 September 2017 compared to 55 in the comparative period.

Financing and covenants

The groups committed facilities at 30 September 2017 were £40m (H1 FY17/18: £40m).  In addition to this, the Company has access to a £5m overdraft facility, a £6m finance lease facility and a £10m accordion facility.

As at 30 September 2017, the Company had drawn £32m on its revolving credit facility leaving a headroom of £8m. 

Following the accounting misstatements, the Group's banking facilities were refinanced in April 2017.  Whilst the covenant tests remained the same, the margin increased as a result.

 

Alternative Performance Measures

Alternative Performance Measures (APMs) are used by the Board in assessing the Group's performance and are applied consistently from one period to the next. They therefore provide additional useful information for shareholders on the underlying performance and position of the Group. These measures are not defined by IFRS and are not intended to be a substitute for IFRS measures.

The Group presents adjusted EBITDA, operating profit and EPS which are calculated as the statutory measures stated before amortisation of acquired intangibles, non-recurring items and share based payments, including related tax where applicable. The table below reconciles the APMs to the statutory reported measures.

Notes to the interim financial statements for the six months ended 30 September 2017

 

1.     General information

Reporting entity

Redcentric plc ('the Company') is a company domiciled in England and Wales. These condensed consolidated interim financial statements ('interim financial statements') as at and for the six months to 30 September 2017 comprise the Company and its subsidiaries (together referred to as 'the Group').    The principal activity of the Group is the supply of IT managed services.

 

 

2.     Accounting policies

Basis of accounting

These interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting, and should be read in conjunction with the Group's last annual consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended 31 March 2017 ('last annual financial statements'). They do not include all of the information required for a complete set of IFRS financial statements. However, selected explanatory notes are included to explain events and transactions that are significant to an understanding of the changes in the Group's financial position and performance since the last annual financial statements.

The information for the year ended 31 March 2017 does not constitute statutory accounts as defined in section 435 of the Companies Act 2016. A copy of the statutory accounts for that year has been delivered to the Registrar of Companies. The auditors reported on those accounts. The annual report for the year ended 31 March 2017 included a qualified audit opinion in respect of the comparative income statement and cash flow statement (for the year ended 31 March 2016) and also in relation to the opening balance sheet as at 1 April 2015, but was unqualified in all other respects and did not draw attention to any matters by way of emphasis.

Use of judgements and estimates

In preparing these interim financial statements, management has made judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, income and expense. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

The significant judgements made by management in applying the Group's accounting policies and the key sources of estimation uncertainty were the same as those that applied to the consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended 31 March 2017.

Going concern

The directors have prepared a detailed trading and cash flow forecast for a period which covers at least 12 months after the date of approval of these condensed interim financial statements.  Having considered the forecasts and making other enquiries, the directors have a reasonable expectation that Redcentric has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future.  Thus they continue to adopt the going concern basis of accounting in preparing the condensed interim financial statements.

Significant accounting policies

The accounting policies applied in these interim financial statements are the same as those applied in the last annual financial statements.

Standards issued but not yet effective

A number of new standards and amendments to standards are effective for annual periods beginning after 1 April 2017 and earlier application is permitted; however, the Group has not early adopted the following new or amended standards in preparing these condensed consolidated interim financial statements.

The Group has the following updates to information provided in the last annual financial statements about the standards issued but not yet effective that may have a significant impact on the Group's consolidated financial statements.

IFRS 2 (amendments) 'Classification and measurement of share-based payment transactions' is effective for periods beginning on or after 1st January 2018. The amendment provides guidance on three issues: the effects of vesting conditions on the measurement of cash-settled share-based payments; the classification of share-based payment transactions with net settlement features for withholding tax obligations; and the accounting for a modification to the terms and conditions of a share-based payment that changes the classification of the transaction from cash-settled to equity-settled. The amendment is not expected to result in any material changes for the Group.

IFRS 9 Financial Instruments was issued by the IASB in July 2014, and is effective for the Group for the year ended 31 March 2019. Applying IFRS 9 will result in changes to the measurement and disclosure of financial instruments and introduces a new expected loss impairment model. . The Group is currently assessing the impact of the new standard and it is not practicable to quantify the effect of this standard until this detailed review has been completed.

IFRS 15 'Revenue from contracts with customers' is effective for periods beginning on or after 1st January 2018. The Group is currently assessing the impact of the new standard and it is not practicable to quantify the effect of this standard until this detailed review has been completed. The Group expects to adopt the standard from 1st April 2018 and will be considering whether to use fully or modified retrospective application.

IFRS 16 'Leases' introduces a single lessee accounting model and is effective for periods beginning on or after 1st January 2019. The new standard will require lessees to recognise a lease liability reflecting the obligation to make future lease payments and a 'right-of-use' asset for all leases unless exemption is taken for certain short-term leases or for leases of low-value assets. The Group is currently assessing the impact of the new standard and it is not practicable to quantify the effect of this standard until this detailed review has been completed. The Group expects to adopt the standard from 1st April 2018 and will be considering whether to use fully or modified retrospective application.

 

3.     Business segments

 

As applied to the consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended 31 March 2017, the Board believes that the Group comprises a single reporting segment being the provision of managed services to customers. Whilst the Board still reviews revenue streams of the three categories separately; recurring, product and service revenue, the operating costs and operating asset base used to derive these revenue streams are the same for all three categories and are presented as such in the Group's internal reporting.

 

4.     Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortisation (Adjusted EBITDA)

 

Management has presented the performance measure adjusted EBITDA because it believes that this measure is relevant to an understanding of the Group's financial performance. The definition of adjusted EBITDA is the same as in the last annual financial statements. Adjusted EBITDA is not a defined performance measure in IFRS. The Group's definition of adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable with similarly titled performance measures and disclosures by other entities.

Basic earnings per share have been calculated using a weighted average number of shares of 148,859,173 (H1 FY16/17: 146,335,704). The dilutive effect of share options in issue at 30 September 2017 increased the weighted average number of shares to 154,641,819 (H1 FY16/17: 153,613,323).

In addition, adjusted earnings per share have been calculated to reflect the underlying performance of the business. This measure is derived as follows:

14.   Error restatement

 

The prior half year comparative numbers for the 6 months ended 30 September 2016 have been restated from those issued and presented in December 2016.  At the time these numbers were released, the forensic review had just been completed.  Further to this review, all of the Company's subsidiaries' accounts were re-audited resulting in additional adjustments, the Indian operation was correctly accounted for as a subsidiary rather than a branch and errors in the group consolidation were eliminated.  The prior year comparative figures are presented on a consistent basis with the audited figures for the full year ended 31 March 2017.
