Tracsis (TRCS) Full-Year results 2022 presentation – November 2022

14 November 2022

Tracsis CEO, Chris Barnes and CFO, Andy Kelly, present full-year 2022 results for the period ended 31 July 2022, followed by investor questions.

In summary, Chris Barnes says, “I am pleased with the progress the Group has made this year in executing its growth strategy.

We have delivered a financial performance aligned to our long-term strategic growth plan, with high levels of organic and acquisitive growth. Our Rail Technology and Services Division has won several multi-year software contracts, and in Data, Analytics, Consultancy and Events we have seen a strong post-Covid recovery in activity levels.
We have a growing pipeline of opportunities in both Divisions, and we have expanded our addressable markets including our first direct entry into the large and growing North America rail market with the acquisition of RailComm. The post-acquisition performance of this business has been particularly pleasing, with good revenue and profit performance, new orders secured for its core products, and an encouraging level of interest in products from elsewhere in the Group that are already well established in the UK. These opportunities leave us well placed to deliver further growth.

The UK rail industry’s transition to a new Great British Railways structure is ongoing and the overall objective is to create a data-driven, customer-focused, safety-critical future for the industry. Digital transformation will play a significant role in the industry’s transition and our range of rail technology products and services is well-placed to help the rail industry deliver operational performance improvements and efficiency savings.
We continue to invest in implementing a more integrated operating model to help us to execute our growth strategy. I was particularly pleased to see the launch of the OneTracsis leadership development programme during the year, which is an important initiative as part of our commitment to investing in developing our people and growing the next generation of leaders in our business. We are also making good progress in implementing a single groupwide IT operating model, under the direction of an experienced technology leader who has been recruited to further enhance senior management bandwidth.

Tracsis is fully committed to delivering sustainable growth that benefits the communities in which we, and our customers, operate. The Group’s products and services are well aligned with this vision, and support our customers in delivering positive environmental and social outcomes. This year we have formalised our sustainability strategy and set ourselves the ambition of being carbon neutral by 2030 for scope 1 and scope 2 emissions from Tracsis operations.

Q1 trading is in line with the Board’s expectations. We are confident that there are strong growth prospects for all parts of our Group and therefore remain committed to implementing our overall strategic growth and investment plans. We will continue to pursue organic and acquisitive growth supported by a strong balance sheet.”
