Strong progress, 24.2% growth in revenue
Kape Technologies has reported first half revenue a touch ahead of the guidance given in July’s trading update with Adjusted EBITDA in line with the suggested $5.8 million. The results show strong progress in growing SaaS revenues with the number of subscription users increasing by 24% to over 1 million and the retention rate improving again to a very healthy level. The first half also saw further investment in customer acquisition paying off with ZenMate and Intego – now both fully integrated into the Group – benefitting. New product launches and high-profile successes by Intego’s macOS security analyst team helped augment Kape’s market positioning. We note that this business model continues to enhance Kape’s ongoing revenue visibility and that Kape is growing market share. We make no change to our numbers as the Board expresses confidence in meeting stretching market growth estimates.
