There was organic growth of 3% in Cloud Centric Strategic Services, with revenue increasing by £500,000 to £15.1m.

Managed services revenue grew organically by 3%, increasing to 89% of group revenue, “offsetting the structural decline in revenue from legacy traditional telephony, from which the group continues to move away”, said the firm.

Underlying EBITDA was £5.4m, down from £5.7m previously. The underlying EBITDA margin fell to 15.9% from 16.7%).

Adjusted profit after tax dropped to £3m from £3.1m, and the adjusted fully diluted EPS was 12.1p (12.5p last time).
