Trading in line with expectations; robust performance across the Group, growing confidence for new financial year

 

Next 15 (AIM:NFG), the tech and data driven growth consultancy, is pleased to provide an update on FY24 trading.

 

Highlights

   --  Robust trading across all segments continues with revenue growth in H2 
      expected to be up 1% year-on-year 
 
   --  3% year-on-year revenue growth expected for full year 
 
   --  Results for the year to 31 January 2024 expected to be in line with 
      management expectations 
 
   --  Recent wins give confidence that growth will accelerate in the new 
      financial year 
 

As announced at the time of our Capital Markets Day on 28 November 2023 our performance continues to be robust across the Group.

 

We expect to report another year of growth, with full-year net revenue, profits and earnings per share in line with management expectations despite the ongoing macroeconomic headwinds, demonstrating the resilience of our diversified, decentralised business model. Despite inflationary pressures, full-year operating margins are expected to slightly increase compared with last year, reflecting an improvement in trading from businesses integrated following the Engine acquisition, and tight cost control across the Group.

 

The Group has had a successful series of new business wins over the last three months such as Uber for Business for Agent3 Group, and SMG being appointed as Asda's new retail media network operator. We have also grown relationships with a number of our existing clients including Salesforce and Procter & Gamble giving us confidence that our growth will accelerate in the year to 31 January 2025.

 

The Group's balance sheet remains strong, and we expect to be in a modest net debt position at the year-end. The Group maintains a disciplined approach to capital allocation which enables it to take advantage of strategic and bolt-on acquisition opportunities as they arise.

 

In September last year we announced a share buyback to a maximum of GBP30m with up to GBP10m expected to be spent by 31 January 2024. As of this morning we had invested GBP4.5m buying back 603,912 shares which have been cancelled. The Board has decided to continue this policy and has reinstructed Deutsche Numis to acquire up to a further GBP10m worth of shares by the end of April 2024.

 

The Group will announce its results for the year to 31 January 2024 on 16 April 2024.
