Plexure improves customer experience the world over

Kiwi software company improves customer experience the world over

21 May 2019

Plexure reports 44 percent revenue growth and $12.7m cash reserves on strong momentum.

Kiwi mobile engagement software company Plexure Group (NZX: PLX) has reported an annual result for the year ended 31 March 2019, of strong revenue growth with more than 110 million users globally on its platform.

Highlights for the year include:

· Continued revenue growth of 44 percent ($16.9m), up $5.136m from FY18

· $7.25m of cash on hand at balance date, increasing to $12.7m immediately post balance date including proceeds from the investment by McDonald’s

· Cash flow positive from operating activities for the second successive year

· 110 million users in 49 countries

· Net loss after tax down 58 percent to $0.703m due to accounting treatment for convertible note (excluding this, net profit after tax of $0.948m)

Chief Executive Craig Herbison says financial year 2019 has been Plexure Group’s most successful year to date.

“The Company’s trading performance has improved dramatically with a full year profit after tax of $0.948m if the impact of the accounting treatment for its convertible note is excluded,” he says.

“The company was cash flow positive from operating activities for the second successive year, and customer usage was also at record levels with 110 million users on the Company’s platform at year-end,” adds Mr Herbison.

This improved performance has driven revenues to a new high of $16.9m and at year-end Plexure had $7.25m in the bank ($12.7m following the investment by McDonald’s on 2 April 2019).

Immediately following the year end, Plexure’s major customer McDonald’s purchased a 9.9 percent equity stake in the company at a 15 percent premium on market price.

Mr Herbison says it was satisfying to see the Board’s confidence in the business matched by its major customer.

“This strategic investment by McDonald’s will assist Plexure develop its offerings and market presence for McDonald’s and other customers,” says Mr Herbison.

The Company is now well poised for its next round of growth with investments in its product roadmap, technology platform and its people.
