Corero Network Security PLC (LON:CNS) has retained a forecast of revenue growth for 2019 despite what it said was a “slower” start to the year.

In a trading update for the six months ended 30 June, the AIM-listed firm forecast that full-year revenues would be around 20% higher than 2018, while direct sales investment would result in increased EBITDA losses.

This was despite a slower first half, with the company expecting revenues in the period to fall to US$4.2mln from US$5mln as a result of lower than expected conversions from the pipeline of its Juniper Networks partnership, however, the deal was expected “contribute materially” in the second half of the year.

Corero is also expecting to report an EBITDA loss for the six months of US$2mln compared to a US$1.4mln loss previously.

Ashley Stephenson, the company’s chief executive, said that despite the slower start to the year he was confident the investment in sales would “accelerate” the development of routes to market and underpin the firm’s future growth.

Corero will report its interim results on 25 September.
