Trading update

Notice of half year results

EMIS Group plc (AIM: EMIS.L), the UK leader in connected healthcare software and systems, today announces a trading update for the six months ended 30 June 2021.


Trading for the half year has been slightly ahead of the Board's expectations, with a return to business as usual despite the continuing challenges of the pandemic. Both revenue and adjusted operating profit are ahead of the comparative period last year and in 2019.

Divisional review

In EMIS Health, the Group is delivering against the requirements of the GP IT Futures contract while continuing to invest in its technology roadmap. The revenue mix in the division reflected a more normalised trading period, with a higher proportion of non-hardware and connectivity tools' revenues than the comparative period last year.

In EMIS Enterprise , the Group continues to execute in the areas of patient-facing services, analytics and pharmacy, most notably supporting the NHS Covid-19 vaccination programme through its Pinnacle software. The division has seen double digit growth in both recurring and non-recurring revenues in the first half.

Financial position

The Group retains a strong balance sheet position with net cash at 30 June 2021 of GBP48.0m (30 June 2020: GBP44.1m), with a first half working capital outflow including the settlement of the GBP7.3m VAT payment deferred a year previously.

Notice of half year results

The Group intends to announce its results for the half year ended 30 June 2021 on Thursday 9 September 2021.

Andy Thorburn, CEO of EMIS Group, said:

"I am pleased that we have performed slightly ahead of expectations in the first half. Healthcare continues to be at the centre of the global agenda and, as the UK recovers from the pandemic, we are well positioned to meet the evolving requirements of the sector, both today and in the future. We remain confident in the outlook ."
