Kainos Group expects results for the full year to be in line with market expectations. The group's trading says its digital services division is experiencing good growth in the public sector. Demand from central and regional government clients continues to strengthen, with notable new contract wins at the National Offender Management Service and the Home Office. Demand for WorkSmart services is strong in the UK and mainland Europe, where the Group has added a number of new enterprise clients, including Tullett Prebon Group Limited. Take-up of the group's SaaS-based automated testing product, Smart, is solid and the group continues to invest in both product development and sales and marketing for Smart. The Evolve division continues to make progress with its Integrated Care SaaS platform and has signed a five-year subscription agreement with Hygieia to use Evolve to power its insulin therapy navigation application which aims to help diabetics systematically manage their changing insulin requirements. In the UK, the Evolve for iPad offering, which allows clinicians to access electronic patient records on the move, is now in live operation at the South East Coast Ambulance Service. Market conditions in the NHS remain challenging, with limited additional funding to drive demand. Kainos says that although the outcome of the UK's referendum on Europe brings with it some uncertainties, the group continues to see immediate opportunities for growth. Kainos says it has a robust balance sheet with strong reserves, no debt and strong cash generation, as well as a growing level of recurring revenue.
