("MediaZest", the "Company” or the “Group”; AIM: MDZ)
MediaZest (AIM: MDZ), the audio-visual solutions provider, is
pleased to provide an update on current trading and performance
during the second half of the financial year ended 30 September 2021.
As expected and previously noted, the second half of the year
showed notable improvement in the Company’s financial performance
as demand for new projects increased in conjunction with the
lifting of Covid related restrictions which had been in place
during the Group’s financial H1, being the six months ended
31 March 2021. As a consequence, cash
in hand at the period end also showed improvement upon the prior
year and the half year interim results.
The Group’s year end audit is now underway and this will

Key project highlights in recent months include a new Innovation
Centre for leading supply chain and logistics provider Wincanton,
the new Rockar Jaguar Land Rover dealership in London’s Canary
Wharf coupled with several new stores for each of long-term clients
Pets at Home, HMV, Post Office and Lululemon.
The Board believes the anticipated improvement in financial
results and the foundations in place with several existing
long-term clients provide the Group with a platform from which to
grow both organically and by acquisition in 2022.
As such the Board has recently engaged with several potential
acquisition targets, in the same market as MediaZest International,
with a view to possible business combinations. Whilst these
discussions have been positive to date, there can be no guarantees
that they will lead to a value accretive transaction or
transactions for MediaZest.

long-term clients with recurring revenue opportunities to further
the successful work of recent years and build a bigger platform for
