AGM Trading Statement

NCC Group plc, a leading independent global cyber security and resilience provider, will hold its Annual General Meeting today at 1.00pm at the Company's Head Office, XYZ Building, 2 Hardman Boulevard, Spinningfields, Manchester, M3 3AQ. 

Ahead of this, the Board is publishing an update on current trading.

The Group continues to generate double digit constant currency revenue growth in its Global Assurance division, and this growth is accelerating as the year progresses. The Group is also a net beneficiary of the strong dollar given the scale of its activities in the USA. Software Resilience has experienced a low single digit constant currency decline due to a recent sales reorganisation, which has stabilised, and revenue is now improving. Taken together the Group expects its first six months adjusted operating profit to be slightly ahead of prior year, even after taking into account the cost and trading impact of hosting our in person global NCC Conferences in June 2022 for the first time since 2019, events, which are already demonstrating their value in terms of colleague retention and commercial momentum.  Given our solid platform, our strong sales pipeline and the momentum in the business, management expectations for the full year are unchanged, although we remain vigilant of any potential impact from current global economic uncertainty.

The Group will report its half-year results for the six months to 30 November 2022 on 2 February 2023 together with an update from recently appointed CEO, Mike Maddison on the Group's future strategy.

Mike Maddison, CEO, commented:

"We have had an encouraging start to the new financial year, and I look forward to presenting my plans to evolve and accelerate the Group's strategy in early February 2023.  It is evident from my first few months that the Group has great potential, and I am excited to lead the business in creating further value for all our stakeholders."
