My guess is not. Accounts are in USD as that is the group's preferred presentation currency to aid comparability with industry and peers.

Presumably Mr Market was expecting worse.

Billings DOWN. "Cash EBITDA" DOWN. Cash generation DOWN. Stock UP!

Is this likely to be affected when US markets open? And why is dividend in USD anyway?

I can’t work out of these results are really good or not. On balance fairly flat and plenty of uncertainty in there. Still, the US is talking about IT threats at the moment so that might prop it up a bit...

well that's a nice little spike up and well needed. Hope we can hold onto it and add over the next few weeks!

Results out. Financial highlights · Total group revenue up 11% to $711 million (an increase of 12% at constant currency) - Strong growth in subscription revenue,(3) up 16% year-on-year (an increase of 17% at constant currency) · Billings(4) flat YOY at constant currency, reflecting a challenging YOY compare - Group net renewal rate of 124%, compared to 140% in FY18 which reflected elevated levels of cross-sell - Total billings were affected by a mix shift, with stronger growth in smaller customers particularly driven by managed service provider ("MSP") monthly billings, and a modest reduction in the number of larger transactions compared to the prior-year period - Weaker Network hardware billings as customers extended refresh cycles - Total subscription renewal base now exceeds $1.2 billion, with the renewal base for FY20 up by 14% at actual rates (19% at constant currency), representing an increase of $55 million to $436 million - Strong growth in net new term customer additions to over 335,000 total customers, from 300,000 in FY18; now in excess of 382,000 when including MSP customers - 119% growth in MSP billings(5) to $19 million, with ARR(6) now at $27 million · Continued strong demand for our next generation ("next-gen") solutions - Next-gen business, including Sophos Central and XG Firewall, grew 30% at constant currency to $340 million, and now represents 47% of billings - Within next-gen business, Sophos Central billings up 23% to $228 million, off a strong compare · Step change improvement in adjusted operating profit(3) - Adjusted operating profit increased by 87% to $109 million, from $58 million in FY18; driven by revenue growth and operating leverage, as well as a one-off benefit from the reduction in variable performance-related pay in the period - Cash EBITDA(7) declined by 16% from $199 million to $168 million as we continue to invest for growth · Profit before taxation increased to $54 million, from a loss before taxation of $(41) million in FY18 · Net cash flow from operating activities of $143 million broadly unchanged year-on-year with close management of working capital and after lower exceptional items · Final dividend of 3.7 cents per share, an increase of 6% over the prior year - Total dividend for the year of 5.2 cents, an increase of 6%

The previously announced change in guidance, moving from billings and EBITDA to revenue, hopefully means less scope to disappoint on the comparatives. In recent past the share price has climbed ahead of results and then fallen when the detail is announced, for the above reason. Fingers crossed May 16 will be different.

sadly, I am still a holder but have lost interest, not to mention money, I dont even know when the results are due! I doubt that they will be good judging from the share price movement

Almost 360. I’m happy enough. Recovered almost all of my loss in last few weeks. Almost. It’s volatile enough to make a few quid here and there. I reckon will go up to near £4 by May update. £3.90 my prediction ;)

● JPMorgan Cazenove cut its target price on Sophos, the security software maker, by 10p to 330p and repeated “neutral”; advice ahead of full-year results due on May 16. The broker said to expect a change to forward guidance including no update on cash earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation, management’s favoured metric of profitability since flotation in 2015. “By our understanding, Sophos may cease providing billings and cash ebitda guidance and shift to the more traditional revenue and operating profit guidance. While we are disappointed that the company will no longer provide the outlook for billings, we also note that recent misses suggest visibility was limited and quarterly volatility was high, and thus the company is shifting to revenue guidance, where it can more reliably provide outlook.” JPMORGAN

Facebook cyber attack? Let’s see how much news this story gets today. I couldn’t post a photo of my omelette this morning, imagine how distraught my friends were. Hopefully this will prompt people to upgrade their cyber security.

Forgotten stock in a forgotten sector. Good time to buy before everyone wakes up ! By coincidence, the last posts were sent on a 6th of the month and today is also the 6th. Is this an omen to £6 ? Could be ...

And my guess the next update will be the same. That crazy prior year still making this year look bad. You would think they would get over that one and start to look at the new software, acquisitions and the like. And the fact that as soon as the next major cyber strike happens people will again be upgrading their security. Back to 600 within a year...

Update already out early (18 Jan)- share price still recovering from the news, especially the weaker than expected billing. Still enough positives for me, though
