TRADING UPDATE

Crossword Cybersecurity plc (AIM: CCS, "Crossword", the "Company" or the "Group"), the technology commercialisation company focusing exclusively on the cyber security sector, is pleased to announce that it expects to report results in line with market expectations for the Financial Year ended 31 December 2018, in early April 2019.

Crossword expects to report revenue growth of 45%, with software related revenue increasing by more than 100%. A number of recurring revenue contracts for Rizikon Assurance, Crossword's Third Party Assurance Saas product, were secured towards the end of 2018 and early in 2019 in industry sectors including Health, IT Services, Nuclear & Professional Services, confirming management's confidence in the strength of the pipeline which has been building since mid-2018.

Tom Ilube, CEO of Crossword, commented,

"2018 was another productive year for Crossword, culminating in our admission to AIM on 14 December, where we raised 2m. The investment will help to continue to grow and convert the Group's current pipeline of 1.4 million which stretches over 30 companies in a wide range of sectors. We are well positioned to deliver a year of strong revenue growth.

Our in depth understanding of what's happening in academic cyber security research, alongside our current and developing relationships with research intensive European university partners, means Crossword is well placed to identify promising cyber security intellectual property (IP) from research, that our industry partners tell us meets emerging real-world challenges."
