FYMar18E rev £108.2m, PBT £9.4m
“In its announcement of 9 Jan 2018, the Company stated that it expected to generate a small loss for the year ended 31 Mar 2018. However, as a result of a reduced level of higher margin media sales generated, particularly in the final quarter of the financial year, and the continued investment made to strengthen the Company's infrastructure, the Board now expects that the Company will report a loss before exceptionals for the year ended 31 Mar 2018 of approximately £380k (14 months ended 31 Mar 2017: loss before exceptionals of £11.7k). During the year ended 31 March 2018, the Company incurred exceptional costs of approximately £125k (14 months ended 31 March 2017: non-recurring costs of £176k), principally as a result of restructuring and certain professional fees and costs incurred in exploring potential acquisitions, some of which remain active, discussions are ongoing and the Company is in a period of exclusivity. All figures in this announcement remain subject to audit. “
The Company has continued to invest further in improving its websites, all of which will be relaunched in the next six months.
