Pelatro PLC - Change to Results Date and COVID-19 Update
("Pelatro", the "Company" or the "Group")
Postponement of audited results for full year to
Update and COVID-19 impact
The Company was in a position to meet its previously announced reporting timetable and reiterates that the Board expects to report revenue and adjusted EBITDA for the year in line with its expectations. Further information on a revised timetable for publication of the results will follow when appropriate guidance from the Company's auditors is available.
The Company also takes this opportunity to update the market for the current situation with regard to the impact of COVID-19 on the Group:
As a software business, we can continue to function efficiently even if most of the employees are working from home. The Group has no supply chain dependencies and Pelatro's software products continue to be available without interruption. With regard to travel restrictions, whilst traveling is generally helpful to progress sales opportunities, video conferencing is effective as a tool to replace physical meetings and customers are of course understanding of the current situation. With respect to implementation and support, the Group has always been keen to minimise the need for on-site activity to minimise costs, hence implementation and support processes lend themselves very well to remote handling. The only special requirement is additional VPNs which are easily provided by customers. Accordingly, current COVID-19 related travel restrictions are having a relatively limited effect on our business.
It is not yet clear how widespread the virus will be, how long the pandemic will last and what the short to medium term effects of this pandemic will be on the behaviour of our customers; however, the Directors believe that the telecommunications industry is likely to be less affected by any economic downturn, whether local or global, than most, particularly as certain telecoms activities tend to increase in "stay at home" periods such as end of year holidays and festivals such as Christmas and
The Directors are constantly monitoring the situation and local developments to manage this risk; we consider that Pelatro is well placed to deal with the evolving situation and will provide updates in due course should the Group be materially impacted.
