Trading update


Mortice Limited (AIM: MORT), the AIM listed security and facilities management company, provides the following trading update for the six months ended 30 September 2016:


The Company has experienced another strong period of trading in first half of the year, with year-on-year revenue growth of over 57%, including the first full contributions from Office & General ("O&G") and Frontline Security Pte. Ltd. ("Frontline"), which were acquired during the previous financial year.


Both acquisitions have performed well and the Company expects to announce total revenues for the first half of at least $80m (H1 2015: $51m). In the current period, the business has won several significant new contracts and has also been appointed to a framework with the London Universities Purchasing Consortium.


Security services revenues are expected to be approximately $43m (H1 2015: $34.5m) with revenues from Facilities Management services of around $37m (H1 2015: $16.5m).


Given both the Company's existing client base and potential to win significant new clients, the Company remains on track to deliver full year revenues of at least $170m, in line with market expectations.
