What’s happening to the TNE share price?

Good revenue results are driving the share price higher. The company released their full year results on 24 November, that’s for the year ending 30 September.

The results exceeded market guidance for profit growth. Net profit before tax was up 16% to $46.5 million.

Technology One attributed record revenues to an increase in licence fees. Added to that was strong growth in its cloud business, which increased by 200%

Chief executive Adrian Di Marco expects the business to double its annual turnover in the next four to five years, that’s on the expectations of more strong growth in its cloud division.

The cloud offering has been a big investment for Technology One. It’s losing money in these early stages, but revenues are growing and the division is expected to be profitable next year.

What now for TNE shares?

The company continues to attract customers. There were 49 new customers for the financial year, including such large enterprises as the Australian Bureau of Statistics, Department of Treasury, Brisbane and Wellington City Councils, and other large organisations. These sort of signings suggests their product is a good one.

The company is also big on plowing revenue back into its research and development, much more than the industry average.
