Alfa Financial Software Holdings PLC

Scheduled Q3 trading update

Momentum in the business continues

Alfa Financial Software Holdings PLC ("Alfa" or the "Company"), a leading developer of mission-critical software for the asset finance industry provides a scheduled update on trading.

Revenue and Cash

Revenue in the third quarter was strong at GBP20m, significantly ahead of GBP16m for the same period last year with high levels of chargeability which has continued through October. Our net cash generation has remained strong.

Delivery

Delivery performance has remained excellent. We had delivered fifteen successful go-lives of Alfa Systems at the time of the half year results in September. This has now increased to twenty three, the most significant of which was a new implementation go-live for a large US automotive client with the successful migration of well over 1 million contracts.

Pipeline and TCV

At the time of our half-year results on 22 September 2021 we had seven prospects in our late stage pipeline. We are continuing to make progress on converting prospects into signed contracts and in addition have added a large prospect in Europe so the late stage pipeline currently sits at eight prospects.

We have had two wins so far in H2, which were announced at the time of the half year results in September. These, along with the signing of additional statements of work, net of work performed has resulted in our TCV ("Total Contracted Value") increasing from GBP125m at 30 June 2021 to GBP128m at 30 September 2021.

Outlook

Overall, given the strength of the revenue performance in Q3 and the chargeability through October, we now expect to exceed our revenue estimates for 2021 by a further circa 3%.

Andrew Denton, Chief Executive Officer of Alfa said:

"This has been an outstanding quarter in what has been an outstanding year for Alfa. We are delighted to see continued good progress across all areas of the business. Already this year more new customers have started using Alfa Systems in more geographies than any year in our history. We have continued to develop the Alfa Systems to evolve their functionality and technical capability to maintain our leadership position in the markets we serve and we were delighted to be able to update the market on the strength of our intellectual property at our recent investor event. These foundations, our financial performance and the strength of our pipeline means that we continue to have growing confidence in the outlook for the business".
