Vianet, the international provider of actionable data and business insight through devices connected to its IoT platform, provided the following trading update ahead of the Group's preliminary results for the year ended 31 March 2019.
Trading for the second half of the year has been largely as anticipated and, as a result, the Group's full year profits will be in line with market expectations and ahead of last year's outturn of £3.62m. As such, the Board intends to recommend a maintained final divi of 4p per share.
The Smart Machines division, including the successfully integrated Vendman business, continues to deliver strong growth in connected devices, with increased penetration helped by the transition of capital sales elements to a recurring sales model. Whilst reduced capital sales suppresses short term financial performance, these strong contracted recurring revenues provide greater visibility and higher quality of future earnings.
