Notice of results
EU Supply (LSE AIM: EUSP), the e-procurement software provider, announces that it expects to release its audited final results for the year ended 31 December 2018 on 26 April 2019.
The Company notes the recent movement in its share price and the TR1 issued on 27 March 2019 by City Financial Investment Company Limited, which went into administration on 21 March 2019, and wishes to take this opportunity to reiterate the contents of its trading update released on 8 February 2019. In it, EU Supply announced that a maiden profit before tax of £0.4m was expected for the year ended 31 December 2018. This was after the Company had allocated significant development resources in H2 2018 to build new services for buyers and suppliers, which are expected to underpin the Company's recurring revenue growth in the medium-term. The development of the Company's supplier side services is proceeding to plan and is expected to further increase recurring revenue growth, while the piloting of micro-procurement is being discussed with several parties.
