H1 Trading Update

 

The Board of Eleco plc (AIM: ELCO), the AIM-listed construction software specialist, is pleased to provide a trading update for the six months ended 30 June 2022, based on unaudited management accounts for the period.

 

·   Recurring revenue for the period increased by 9% to £8.2m (2021: £7.5m) and is approximately 61% (2021: 55%) of total revenue.

 

·   Total revenues for the period were £13.4m (2021: £13.8m) and £13.8m at constant currency.

 

·   Profits remain in line with expectations.

 

·   Strong cash generation during the period with a net cash position of £11.3m (£10.0m at 31 December 2021) following payment of final dividend in June of £0.3m.

 

Jonathan Hunter, Chief Executive Officer of Eleco plc said,

 

“We are pleased with Eleco’s performance in the first six months of 2022 despite the challenging economic conditions. There are increasing inflationary pressures on salaries across the Group which have been addressed through a set of initiatives aimed at retaining existing colleagues and attracting new talent and I am pleased to report that in May we were certified as a Great Place to Work®.

 

In the period, the pandemic continued to impact our ability to market at trade fairs and we saw reduced demand for services and sales of new licences across the portfolio in Germany.  In the UK and Swedish markets however, we experienced growth in new and existing customer subscription revenue and our consistently strong renewal rates on maintenance contracts ensured positive progress towards our strategy to expand our higher value and predictable recurring revenue.

 

The Board remains confident in delivering in line with market expectations for the full year.”
