Nick Kuenssberg, chairman, commented, “”These first half year results are good, demonstrating that the company’s business model is effective and profitable. Developments in web services, focussed on the UfindUs local search directory, and Netintelligence, the on demand security software which addresses the needs of every business on an ASP basis, provide us with considerable scope for further growth.”

Kuenssberg added: “The second half is historically significantly stronger which, with the impact of recurring growth, gives us confidence for very good results for the full year.”

Angus MacSween, CEO, commented, “The first half has seen continuing organic growth in our web services business and encouraging progress with Netintelligence. UfindUs aims to become a leading provider of local internet search services to the small and micro business community, and we expect strong growth in this market for the foreseeable future. Our improvements to the Easyspace product set and infrastructure have been rewarded by higher customer retention rates and growing numbers of new customers.”

Angus MacSween added: “Netintelligence is now established as an ASP model which provides intelligent security on demand to any computer whenever or wherever that computer connects to the internet. We now have in place multiple channels to market, including Telco’s, distributors and resellers in addition to web marketing We have enjoyed limited but important success in both the consumer and business sectors, with growing recurring revenues. We believe that our ‘managed service’ platform, which can be white-labelled for resellers along with the recurring revenue opportunity, will be appealing to many potential resellers. Netintelligence, through our BT relationship, has been adopted by 15 ISP’s of varying sizes to resell into their customer base, and we are now seeing interest from overseas, particularly the USA and we expect to see US revenue building in 2006”

Finally,looking ahead to the next 6 months, MacSween added: Our markets are real and growing. Our products are proven and market ready. Our second half is historically stronger and we look forward to ongoing growth.
