Tender award and trading update

Journeo plc (AIM: JNEO), the information systems and transport technical services group, is pleased to provide an update on current trading and announce that it has secured a tender valued at GBP0.8m for real-time passenger information (RTPI) systems and services for Aberdeenshire County Council.

The tender includes the provision of software and communications to generate and manage timetables and a 5-year services and support package. In addition, the tender also includes a customer option of replacing legacy displays with Journeo's latest high-performance systems, which, depending on the numbers involved, will have the effect of increasing the overall value of the award.

Trading:

Overall trading in H1 has been better than the same period last year, with strong growth in sales order intake being generated as the Group executes its strategy of developing technologies, IP and engineering capabilities centred around customers and applications in target market sectors.

Group revenues increased by 7% to GBP7.2m, and cash balances at 30 June 2021 remained strong at GBP1.3m (31 December 2020: GBP1.2m).

Passenger Systems revenues at GBP3.5m were broadly similar to last year (2020: GBP3.6m), however, Fleet Systems revenues increased by 17% to GBP3.7m (2020: GBP3.2m) with a number of new customer wins and further adoption of Journeo's safety systems and software-based services.

A further, more detailed update will be provided in the Group's interim report in September.

Russ Singleton, Chief Executive of Journeo plc, commented: "The Group has performed well in the first half with Passenger Systems maintaining revenues at similar levels to last year and strong revenue growth from Fleet Systems. Increased demand for our cloud-based applications, which improve productivity and reduce costs is helping to secure new and existing customers. A strengthening order book and a growing sales pipeline of future opportunities underpins our confidence for 2021 and beyond".
