Trading Update and Notice of Results

Kape (AIM: KAPE), a leading, global cybersecurity SaaS business, provides an update on trading for the six months ended 30 June 2019.

The Group continued to trade strongly through the first half, underpinned by Kape's focussed customer acquisition strategy and new product initiatives. Accordingly, the Board is pleased to confirm that results are expected to be in line with management expectations.

H1 2019 revenue is expected to be c.$29.6 million (H1 2018: $24.1 million from continued operations), representing an increase of 23.9% driven by growth in sales of Kape's suite of digital privacy products, with all revenues collected in advance and recognised along the contract period. H1 2019 Adjusted EBITDA(1) is expected to be c. $5.8 million (H1 2018: $4.1 million from continued operations), up 40.2%.

R&D remains a central focus for the Group, with the mission to support Kape's customers' widening digital privacy requirements. Kape's end-market continues to experience strong growth, complemented by the new ZenMate solutions introduced in the period. The Group's technology also exposed two new high-profile macOS malware security threats through its endpoint security solution, both of which Kape users are now fully protected against, providing further validation of the Group's brand and broad privacy and security capabilities.

The Group expects to report its interim results for the six months ended 30 June 2019 on the 17 September 2019.

Ido Erlichman, Chief Executive Officer of Kape, commented:

"We continued our rapid progress into 2019, with high double-digit growth in Adjusted EBITDA coupled with the increased importance of our products to our customer's digital lives and a broadening of our R&D capabilities. The Group is better placed than ever to take market share and generate significant ongoing value for all stakeholders. We remain confident that our ongoing investment in people and products will continue to ensure Kape remains at the forefront of the burgeoning digital privacy and security arena."

(1) Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure and a company specific measure which excludes other operating income and expenses which are considered to be one off and non-recurring in nature.

(2) Calculated as expected revenues from first renewal of the existing user base in addition to the deferred revenue balance
