Gentrack has made a number of acquisitions recently, including Junifer, Blip and CA+. These purchases contributed to the result and Gentrack said it made good progress with the integration of the businesses.

Management also gave comparisons against the second half of last year’s result, as this half actually included the acquisitions but the first half of last year didn’t. Doing this comparison showed revenue increased by 12%, EBITDA increased by 6% and net profit increased by 34%.

Looking ahead, Gentrack provided guidance for the second half’s EBITDA result. It said EBITDA will be similar to the first half due to the timing of key contract wins and project milestones. The company maintains its 15% long term annual EBITDA growth objective.
