Half Year Trading Update


Bytes Technology Group, one of the UK's leading software, security and cloud services specialists, is pleased to provide the following update on trading for its financial half year ended 31 August 2022 ("H1 FY23").


The Company continued to trade strongly during the first half of the financial year. During H1 FY23 BTG performed well across its key financial performance metrics, with year-on-year growth in Gross Invoiced Income and Gross Profit of more than 20%, and Adjusted Operating Profit growth comfortably in the high-teens. This reflects robust demand from both the corporate and public sectors.


We expect to report a strong cash balance of circa £35 million at the end of H1 FY23, after accounting for tax and £25 million of dividends. Cash conversion in the period reflect the accelerated adoption by customers of cloud usage or subscription-based products and a consequent increase in debtor days during the first half. Management is confident cash conversion will return to normal higher levels in H2 FY23.


BTG expects to release its half year results for FY23 on 26 October 2022.


Neil Murphy, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "We've made a very positive start to the year, extending our track record of double-digit growth we have delivered since our IPO in 2020. Despite the difficult economic conditions, corporate and public sector organisations continue to invest in their IT systems. We are well placed to capture these growth opportunities thanks to our strong partnerships with many of the world's leading software companies and high levels of customer service."
