(Adds detail of underlying profit, product performance, outlook)
LONDON (AFX) - AttentiV Systems Group PLC said its full-year pretax profit
has tripled to 3.3 mln stg from 1.1 mln stg a year earlier, after sales jumped
by 25 pct to 32.1 mln stg.
The financial services company also paid its first dividend since flotation
on AIM in March of 0.66 pence per share.
Together with the pre-flotation dividend of 1.3 mln stg (paid to the
company's then parent) the total dividend paid and proposed for the full year is
equivalent to 3.16 pence per share.
AttentiV added that trading since the start of the new financial year has
been in line with expectations.
David Webber, chief executive of AttentiV, commented:
"We expect our past success in selling a high level of additional services
and software licences to our existing customers to continue and to enable
fulfillment of our business plans for the (current) financial year."
The company said its underlying operating margin has increased to 11 pct
from 8 pct last year.
Underlying operating profit -- after adjustment for non-recurring costs
related to the group's former ownership and costs of the rebranding to AttentiV
-- rose to 3.6 mln stg from 2.0 mln stg.
Revenue from its finance product Portfolio was 4.6 mln stg, down from 5.1
mln stg, and below the company's expectations, which it attributed to the level
of competition within the consumer and motor finance sector.
Its Summit retail banking product produced revenues of 22.0 mln stg, up from
14.1 mln and ahead of expectations.
This was due to the continuing consolidation of Summit's position within the
sector, together with the continued closure of sales opportunities within its
growing user base, AttenitV said.
Looking forward, the company said it expects the level of regulation in UK
financial services to continue to be an important factor that will lead
organisations to abandon in-house developed solutions, because of the
accelerating cost burden of compliance.
"We therefore expect further opportunities to arise over the coming year
within the mortgage market in the UK and Ireland as organisations assess their
need to enhance their strategic platforms to meet future regulatory and market
requirements," said AttentiV's chairman Peter Bertram.

Background Information on AttentiV Systems Group plc

AttentiV is a provider of software solutions and associated services to the
financial services sector.

AttentiV has three offerings to the financial services market.

1. Portfolio - a software solution for organisations offering asset-backed
finance products, personal loans and debt management;

2. Summit - a software system that supports the selling and administration
of mortgages, loans, savings, current accounts and associated services within
the retail banking sector; and

3. Tailored Solutions - software applications that are designed and built
to perform particular tasks within the financial services market place. The
functionality and scope of these solutions is determined by individual customer

creates.

AttentiV provides software support, maintenance and helpdesk services for
customers once they are running their businesses with the software and through
its Synergy outsourcing service can deliver any of its technology solutions as a
managed service.

ATTENTIV SYSTEMS GROUP PLC
("AttentiV" or "the Company")

PRELIMINARY ANNOUNCEMENT OF RESULTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 SEPTEMBER 2004

Chairman's Statement

I am pleased to announce a strong set of results for the financial year ended 30
September 2004 with the AttentiV management team delivering the anticipated
improvement in financial performance.

Turnover has risen by 25% to #32.1 million (2003 #25.7 million).

The AttentiV team has delivered on the first stage of its objective of
operational improvement with underlying operating margin increased to 11% (2003
8%).

The combination of successful project delivery, customer retention and
efficiency improvements has led to reported operating profit increasing to #3.2
million (2003 #1.0 million) whilst underlying operating profit has increased to
#3.6 million (2003 #2.0 million). Underlying operating profit is stated after
adjustment for non-recurring costs related to the group's former ownership
together with the costs in 2004 associated with the rebranding to AttentiV.

The team continues to concentrate on appropriate financial diligence with #2.2
million operating cash flow generated during the period (2003 #2.7 million) and
debtor days at the year end are maintained at our target of between 40 to 50
days.


Overview of year

The overall performance of the business over the financial year has been highly
satisfactory.

The Summit retail banking product has had considerable success during the year
which culminated in the signature of a contract to provide mortgage application
processing capability to the Portman Building Society. The excellent performance
of Summit compensated for a lower than anticipated level of success for the
Portfolio product due to competitive pressures within the motor and consumer
finance markets.

In addition to the successful delivery of projects for London Scottish Bank plc,
Toyota Financial Services (UK) plc and a number of mortgage lenders including
Britannia Building Society and Bristol & West plc, AttentiV has strengthened its
position in the sub-prime mortgage market with the addition of Mortgages plc,
the Merrill Lynch subsidiary, as a customer.

It is particularly pleasing that AttentiV has consolidated its position as the
UK's leading provider of mortgage systems by its supply to The Royal Bank of
Scotland plc group of a solution to enable the consolidation of its primary
mortgage processing platforms in one of the UK's largest technology
transformation programmes. The programme is scheduled to be completed in autumn
2005.

Software licence revenues for the group increased to #4.8 million (2003 #3.0
million) with services and third party revenues increasing to #15.7 million
(2003 #10.9 million). Support & maintenance and outsourcing revenues were #11.6
million (2003 #11.8 million).

In the year ended 30 September 2004 gross operating costs of #30.5 million (2003
#26.6 million) were reduced by #1.6 million (2003 #2.0 million), which
represents a net increase in work-in-progress on long term contracts, resulting
in the reported operating costs of #28.9 million (2003 #24.6 million).


Dividend

Following the group's flotation on AIM the board is pleased to announce the
proposed payment of a dividend ahead of the expectations set on flotation. The
board proposes the payment of a final dividend of 0.66p per ordinary share which
together with the pre-flotation dividend of #1,267,000 (paid to the company's
then parent) makes the total dividend paid and proposed equivalent to 3.16p per
share (2003 6.58p). The final dividend will be paid on 14 February 2005 to
shareholders on the register as at 28 January 2005. The shares are expected to
be quoted ex dividend on 26 January 2005.


Operational Review


Portfolio

Revenue for the Portfolio product was #4.6 million (2003 #5.1 million) which was
below expectations due to the level of competition within the consumer and motor
finance sector.

During the period Toyota Financial Services (UK) plc completed the roll out of
the AttentiV motor finance solution across their operations and London Scottish
Bank plc completed the roll out of the AttentiV personal loan and collection
solution across their UK branches.

Stroud & Swindon Building Society, The Cooperative Bank plc and Mortgages plc
also completed projects to deploy the Portfolio collections and credit
management solution.


Summit

Revenue for the Summit product was #22.0 million (2003 #14.1 million). This
performance was ahead of expectations due to the continuing consolidation of
Summit's position within the sector together with the continued closure of sales
opportunities within the growing user base.

During the period Britannia Building Society successfully migrated their 2.5
million savings accounts and 188 branches to the Summit Savings and Branch
Cashiering solution with the licence fee associated with this project being
recognised in the first half of the financial year.

Following the signing of a contract with The Royal Bank of Scotland plc in
December 2003 the implementation of Summit has progressed well with the Royal
Bank of Scotland, NatWest and Ulster Bank brands successfully processing
mortgages subsequent to our financial year-end.

In two further rapid deployments of Summit both the National Counties and
Darlington Building Societies have successfully commenced transacting live
mortgage business during the year. In August, Bristol & West plc successfully
migrated their historic mortgage book on to the Summit mortgage platform. On 1
September 2004 Mortgages plc, the Merrill Lynch subsidiary, successfully
commenced transacting live mortgage business on Summit. They join Southern
Pacific Mortgages Limited and Preferred Mortgages Limited, the Lehman's
subsidiaries, as sub-prime lenders using mortgage lending solutions from
AttentiV: further evidence of the opportunity we believe exists for AttentiV in
the sub-prime market.

During the autumn, our mortgage customers have migrated to Summit Release 9.1 in
support of their compliance with the FSA's Mortgage Conduct of Business rules.


Tailored Solutions

Revenue for Tailored Solutions was #5.5 million (2003 #6.5 million). This
reduction was expected and was due to a client taking their support and
maintenance in house on 31 December 2003.

The five-year support and development agreement signed with Intelligent Finance,
the HBOS plc internet bank, to support the bank's mortgage, savings and
offsetting systems, has progressed well through the year.


Investment

During the year AttentiV has completed further investments in its software
products with additional enhancements to the user interfaces for Summit and
Portfolio. There was also significant investment in the Summit product to
support regulatory requirements and greater performance capability for high
business volumes. Additionally, a new mortgage point of sale solution provided
in collaboration with a partner, has been promoted since the early summer. This
has already resulted in three customers adopting the solution.

The savings and mortgages offset capability for Summit remains on track for
delivery within the next release of Summit and the revolving credit capability
developed for Portfolio Credit will shortly be available to customers.


Improvement

Building upon the improvements in operating performance over the past year, a
programme has been established for further operational improvements in
productivity to be achieved in 2005. For the development and support functions,
there are particular metrics that are being monitored on a monthly basis to
track against this programme and any variances to the plan are being reported to
the AttentiV Board. The management team is confident that improvements will be
achieved in 2005 and this will underpin our continuing focus on removing our
dependency on licence revenues.


Staff

We have continued to invest in the training of our employees over the year.
Average employee numbers have risen from 368 in 2003 to 391 in 2004 but we do
not envisage employee numbers significantly increasing beyond that number within
2005. Retention has been maintained at 89% for the year.


Current Trading & Outlook

Trading since 30 September 2004 has continued in line with expectations, with
our Summit customers transacting new mortgage business in accordance with the
Mortgage Conduct of Business rules, to schedule, on 1 November 2004.

In accordance with our business plans we have subsequent to the financial year
end reduced our delivery capacity for the Portfolio product. This was in
response to the level of competitive pressures within the motor and consumer
finance sector resulting from the low barriers to entry, compared to core
banking systems, for new suppliers to the sector. However, the opportunities
within the retail banking sector and our existing customer base is expected to
compensate for the challenging motor and consumer finance sector.

Our aspirations for growth within the consumer finance sector are supported by a
detailed programme of marketing activities and we remain encouraged by the
pipeline of opportunities.

Our view is that a number of mortgage providers, with internally developed
lending systems, will need to take very tactical approaches to achieving
mortgage compliance and that there will be both cost and efficiency burdens
associated with the solutions they have adopted. A number of these organisations
will need to make strategic decisions regarding their mortgage processing
platforms during 2005 and securing sales wins to these organisations will lay
the basis for further business success for AttentiV for the year ending 30
September 2006.

We expect our past success in selling a high level of additional services and
software licences to our existing customers to continue and thereby facilitate
fulfillment of our business plans for the financial year ending September 2005.
The company has #7.1 million (2003 #6.0 million) of contracted licences not yet
booked to revenue together with a maintenance and contracted recurring revenues
base at 30 September 2004 of #12.4 million (2003 #10.8 million).

Looking forward, we expect the level of regulation in UK financial services to
continue to be an important factor that will lead organisations to abandon in
house developed solutions, because of the accelerating cost burden of
compliance. Instead, we expect they will find it more efficient to adopt product
solutions where the regulatory cost burden is shared across a broad user
community. We therefore expect further opportunities to arise over the coming
year within the mortgage market in the UK and Ireland as organisations assess
their need to enhance their strategic platforms to meet future regulatory and
market requirements.

Investors Chronicle 13 August 2004

ATTENTIV SYSTEMS (ATN)

63p - software supplier - Software supplier AttentiV Systems may not be a household name but, its products process one in four UK mortgage applications. The business was spun out of Lynx four years ago and, previously losing £2m a year, is now on course for a record performance. Increased productivity should help drive margin growth and a dividend is also likely next year.

The company joined Aim in March following an oversubscribed placing at 55p a share, which raised a net £3.7m to fuel future expansion. Its customer base spans 72 clients and includes many high-street building societies and banks, such as Britannia, Royal Bank of Scotland and Barclays.

To these, AttentiV supplies a range of solutions for mortgages, personal loans, savings, instalment credit, insurance and debit/credit management. Operating in the consumer finance and software systems markets, it is well-placed to benefit from increasing regulation. And by offering financial clients a one-stop service, the company is continuing to win market share. Its Summit software package is a core product and sales increased 49 per cent to £10.1m in the six months to 31 March 2004. So AttentiV has plenty of scope to push further software sales through its existing client base - but it is also on the lookout for complementary acquisitions.

As with most software companies, though, AttentiV is light on fixed assets. Even so, cash and cash-generation are both strong. A property near Leeds is in the books at £1m, but has been revalued at £1.75m, and could provide a redevelopment opportunity. As of 31 March, services and third-party revenues covered 60 per cent of the total cost base. These are recurring revenues, so forecasting results is a much more predictable exercise.

Forecast EPS growth is low due to the unusually low tax charge in 2004. But AttentiV has a leading market position, high recurring revenues and trades on just 13 times 2005's forecast earnings. Buy.

23 JULY 2004

ATTENTIV SYSTEMS GROUP PLC

("AttentiV")

New Licence Signed with Portman Building Society

AttentiV Systems Group, a leading developer and supplier of software to the
financial services sector, is pleased to announce that it has contracted with
the Portman Building Society for the implementation of AttentiV's retail banking
solution, Summit, which includes the Activate mortgage application processing
module.

Portman Building Society is paying AttentiV a licence fee to use AttentiV's
Summit product to support mortgage applications and accounts servicing across
its network of branches. In common with other contracts of this nature, AttentiV
also expects to earn additional revenues through the provision of support,
maintenance and other consultancy services over a period covering several years.

The decision follows the merger of Portman with the Staffordshire Building
Society, which completed on 31 December 2003, and will extend the use of the
original Staffordshire system to cover the Portman Building Society's mortgage
operation. The implementation project has already commenced and will ensure that
the Society meets the deadline for Mortgage Conduct of Business compliance on 31
October 2004.

Robert Sharpe, Chief Executive of the Portman Building Society, explained:

"We had a requirement for a regulation ready mortgage application processing
system and the merger with Staffordshire Building Society provided an
opportunity to review our systems across the Group. The Staffordshire has been a
user of AttentiV's Summit system for some time and it made perfect technical and
commercial sense to us to standardise on the same proven system with AttentiV."

The Activate module will be used by the Portman Building Society to automate the
processes involved in dealing with a mortgage application through its various
stages to completion. Following completion, the mortgage will be controlled by
the main AttentiV Summit system for its full operational life.

Activate will enable the Society to provide a consistent product offering and
consistency of information given across all branches, an essential requirement
when complying with new Mortgage regulations. A single system with a standard
approach will ensure that customers are dealt with efficiently and in accordance
with regulatory requirements.
