Binary trades are attracting the regulators' interest

TechFinancials PLC (LON:TECH) expects the online trading software business to remain challenging over the remainder of 2017 due to the number of regulatory reviews underway across the industry.

Marketing of binary options, Forex and CFD trading is under close scrutiny in a number of countries, which is making for a very uncertain environment for platform developers such as TechFinancials.

Revenues dropped to US$6.97m (US$ 9.86m) in the half year to June, which largely reflected its largest B2B customer taking its business in-house, though there was another good performance by Hong Kong-based consumer facing subsidiary DragonFinancials, which increased turnover by almost 10% to US$3.57mln and net profit by 30% to US$2.06mln.

After the half year DragonFinancials also paid a dividend of US$2mln, of which Techfinancials received US$1.02mln pro-rata for its 51% stake.

Interim group profits were US$282,000 (US$1.33mln) with the cash at half year of US$5.8mln, the company said in a statement.
