*

Celebrus Technologies [LON:CLBS] the AIM-listed data technology company published its full-year results to end-March today (9th July).

The Surrey-based data solutions company reported a 20% increase in year-on-year annual recurring revenue (ARR) to GBP20.2m with its most encouraging department, software which increased y-o-y by 92%.

Total revenue was up 52.3% y-o-y to GBP32.6m, as was adjusted profit before tax, which increased y-o-y from GBP3.8m to GBP6m with statutory profit of GBP5.6m, up 133%.

The company’s management recommended a final dividend of 2.23p, which would make the total dividend for the year 3.15p, up from 3.03p a year ago.

Celebrus has healthy cash position and no debt

The company ended the year with a healthy cash position of GBP30.7m, up from GBP17.2m. The company is debt-free. Celebrus is around 23-years old and offers clients the ability to analyse data. Acquired by D4t4 Solutions in 2015, which was already a global leader in data management, D4t4 retained the Celebrus name, and the enlarged group developed a suite of data management tools such as automated patching, advanced monitoring scripts, and performance management and optimisation tools.

D4T4 Solutions consolidated data solutions under the Celebrus product suite to include the core Celebrus platform and Celebrus Cloud for data management. The company developed a fraud identification tool in 2021 and the following year the Celebrus platform was expanded to include CX Vault, the no-party data solution to opt-outs, and Celebrus CDI for Salesforce.

Bill Bruno, Celebrus’ chief executive officer said in a statement to the market this morning: “We have a healthy cash balance, no debt, and strong alignment at the board level on what we are seeking to acquire. This will not slow down our own roadmap and investments in the platform, but it is a key part of our current strategy. […] With a backdrop of increasing risks globally, we continue to invest and focus on both cyber security and measurement. We have further improved our monitoring, processes and technology investments to ensure that we are doing everything we can to protect our platform, our customers, and their consumers. We are also ensuring that we can make data-driven decisions across the entire business to optimise our investments to deliver the best return to our shareholders.”


The company’s shares opened at 257.5p up 63.5% over one-year, and up 18.6% over the year-to-date. The company has a market cap of GBP98.6m.  Tom Skelton, the company’s chairman said: “The outlook continues to be positive with a pipeline of excellent opportunities, and a business which is scalable and efficient.”

“The group has a healthy cash balance to fund necessary investments into growth, both organic and by acquisition if appropriate, and I’m delighted to report that the board is highly confident in the group’s strategy to create significant shareholder value in the coming years.”

Celebrus Technologies has again delivered a strong financial performance in its full-year results, boasting significant revenue and profit growth alongside a healthy cash position. The company’s commitment to innovation and strategic acquisitions positions it well for continued success in the data management landscape.
