Half Year Trading Update, Notice of Results and CMD

 

Learning Technologies Group plc, a market leader in digital learning and talent management, announces a trading update for the six months to 30 June 2022.  All figures relate to this period unless otherwise stated.

 

LTG has delivered a strong performance that reflects the resilience of its business model in a challenging macroeconomic environment and underpins full year expectations.  The Board expects the Group to deliver revenues of not less than £280 million (H1 2021: £82.6 million) reflecting the contribution of acquisitions, c.5% organic growth on a constant currency basis and the benefit of foreign exchange gains.

 

The integration of GP Strategies is progressing well with margin improvements and strong organic revenue growth ahead of our expectations.  This momentum supports our confidence that GP Strategies will achieve our previously stated guidance of 12% EBIT margin in FY 2022.

 

Group adjusted EBIT for the first half is expected to be in excess of £43 million, almost double prior year (H1 2021: £22.0 million).

 

Net debt at 30 June 2022 was £145.3 million (compared to £24.9 million net cash at 30 June 2021 prior to the GP acquisition).

 

Notice of results

LTG will publish its half-year results on 22nd September 2022.

 

Capital Markets Day

On 13th October 2022, LTG will host a Capital Markets Day in London for analysts and investors. To register to attend, please contact LTG@fticonsulting.com.

 

 

Jonathan Satchell, Chief Executive of Learning Technologies Group, said:

 

"I am delighted the momentum in our business has continued since the start of the year. Our transformational acquisition of GP Strategies is delivering strong returns and offers new opportunities for the Group as an enlarged business.

 

The resilient organic growth across our divisions alongside the continuing outstanding margin improvement in GP Strategies, provides the Board with confidence for the full year. While we are mindful of the wider macro environment, LTG is better placed than ever to support an increasing number of organisations to recruit, train, motivate and retain talent."
