Trading Update

Kainos Group plc (KNOS), a UK-headquartered IT provider with expertise across three divisions - Digital Services, Workday Services, and Workday Products, today issues a trading update for the period from 1 April 2023 to date.

Despite the uncertain trading environment, our customers continue to maintain their investment in digital projects and trading in the first half has been good. As a result, the Board expects our results for the full year ending 31 March 2024 will be in line with current consensus forecasts*.

-- Our Digital Services division has delivered a solid performance with sustained demand from our Public Sector clients.

-- As an established partner in the fast-growing Workday consulting sector, our Workday Services division continues to generate strong growth as we engage with international clients in all the significant European and North American markets.

-- Within our Workday Products division, our three products, Smart Test (for automated testing), Smart Audit (for compliance monitoring) and Smart Shield (for data masking) continue to deliver very strong growth as we continue to expand our global client base.

As in previous years, our performance has been underpinned by our long-term customer relationships, and delivered by our people, who continue to excel in delivering high-impact solutions for our customers. We are grateful for the ongoing trust of our customers and the efforts of our colleagues across the world.

Looking forward, our robust pipeline, strong balance sheet and significant contracted backlog support our confidence about the future, and we believe that we are well-positioned for further growth and remain confident in our strategy.

The announcement of our results for the six months ending 30 September 2023 will be made on 13 November 2023.

* Note: Company compiled range is based on known sell side analyst estimates. The ranges are: Revenue GBP418.2m - GBP434.2m and Adjusted PBT GBP72.6m - GBP78.1m.
