Publishing Technology plc Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2014

Publishing Technology plc announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the six months ended June 30, 2014. For the period, the company reported group revenue of £7,609,000 against £8,486,000 a year ago. Loss from operations was £542,000 against income from operations of £527,000 a year ago. Loss from operations including equity accounted investment was £522,000 against profit from operations including equity accounted investment of £577,000 a year ago. Loss before net finance costs, tax, depreciation and foreign exchange gains and losses (LBITDA) was £283,000 against profit before net finance costs, tax, depreciation and foreign exchange gains and losses (EBITDA) of £653,000 a year ago. Loss before tax was £685,000 against profit before tax of £416,000 a year ago. Loss attributable to owners of the parent was £685,000 against profit attributable to owners of the parent of £392,000 a year ago. Net cash inflow from operating activities was £275,000 against net cash outflow from operating activities of £771,000 a year ago. This was due to large receipts from recurring revenue receivable in the first half of the year related to annual services. Purchase of property, plant and equipment was £26,000 against £132,000 a year ago. Basic and diluted loss per share arising from both total and continuing operations was 8.55 pence against basic and diluted income per share arising from both total and continuing operations of 4.58 pence a year ago. The fall in turnover of just over 10% against the same period in 2013 was largely due to delays in one major contract as a result of developing new product functionality as part of the implementation. This resulted in the deferral of revenues that were expected to be recognized in the period. The group also incurred some additional product development expense and additional resource costs to ensure success on on-going contracts and improve the efficiency of both advance and pub2web.

Publishing Technology plc Provides Earnings Guidance for the Six Months Ending June 30, 2014 and Year Ending December 31, 2014

Publishing Technology plc provided earnings guidance for the six months ending June 30, 2014 and year ending December 31, 2014. The company announced that the first half results for the six months ending June 30, 2014 are likely to show a loss due to recent actions taken by the company to rectify implementation problems on some current contracts, resulting in additional product development expense and deferral of revenue which was expected to be recognised in the period. The company announced that it expects its results for the year ending December 31, 2014 to be below market expectations and broadly in line with the full year results for 2013.
