The company's share price halved as it said it is in cost cutting mode as it issued a revenue and profit warning on Friday morning.

The warning signs were there in April when the company said trading had been slower than expected in the first three months of 2016.

At that time, the company indicated trading was expected to pick up in the second half of the year, but rather like when waiting for a bus on a freezing cold wet night, the pick-up is taking longer to arrive than anticipated.

The company said that although its Passenger Systems has a number of irons in the fire in terms of contract bids, order intake has been well below expectations, and the board now expects full-year revenue will be lower than last year, resulting in a significant loss for the full year.

The company has been looking to remove costs from the business and accelerate the consolidation of operations, particularly in areas where there was duplication or overlap resulting from the acquisition of RSL Group in May last year. The company said it is considering all options in respect of the future of the RSL business.

The company attempted to soften the impact of the profit warning with news of a contract renewal with First Bus to provide CCTV on its buses.

"The new framework agreement builds on the relationship with First Bus as preferred supplier for new bus systems and includes our latest innovative remote condition monitoring service,” said Russ Singleton, chief executive officer of 21st Century.

With the uncertainty associated with the First Bus contract renewal removed, the company said it can now direct more focus on a number of framework agreements, bids and tenders currently under negotiation.

The transport technology group - which sells a range of products including CCTV, on-board wifi, passenger counters and telematics - said one new deal was for its fleet systems division while the other is for its integrated systems business.

A £300,000 contract with ‘one of the UK's major passenger transport operators’ will see 21st Century’s Croydon-based fleet systems division modify vital 'on-board' IT sub-systems. The work is to be done in overnight stints at a number of depots over a compressed timescale during the first half of 2016.

Elsewhere, the company’s Coventry-based integrated systems business has secured a £200,000 contract with a local authority to upgrade an urban security scheme.

"We are delighted that these major customers have selected us to carry out these important and time sensitive upgrades and modification works,” said chief executive Russ Singleton.

“These are further examples of 21st Century delivering on our commitment to broaden the range of services we can offer to the public transport sector and leverages our abilities as we move towards providing a more complete range of technical services into diverse fleets across all IT based 'on-board' technologies".

On AIM, 21st Century shares gained 0.25p or 6.25% to trade at 4.25p each.
