The organic or like-for-like revenue growth for the year ended June was 23% to PS58.1mln. However, this only translated to a 9% increase in adjusted underlying earnings. (EBITDA) As the gross margin decreased to 82% from 91% last year, it resulted in a decline in adjusted underlying earnings. The decrease in overall group gross margin was due to the rise of premium messaging channels (routing purchased through a third party per-message basis, such as SMS). Texts have a lower margin than emails.
After a trading update, Biome Technologies PLC (AIM: BIOM), was another stock in decline. According to the bioplastics and radiofrequency business, full-year revenues will be lower than originally anticipated due to slippage in orders. EBITDA losses will likely be higher than market expectations.
