Currencies help Kewill’s revenues but not margins

(By Anthony Miller – Monday 22nd June 2009 8:15am). Favourable foreign exchange rates helped logistics software company, Kewill, show 5% revenue growth for the year to 31st March to £53m, though at constant currencies this was an 8% revenue decline (see here). Even with the FX boost, operating margins fell from 4.6% to 3.7%, rather pitiful for a software play. SaaS/Hosting revenues are now 32% of the mix (FY07: 27%), bringing recurring revenue contribution up to 59%. The prelims statement was unusually brief (sans notes) so we will write more after this morning’s briefing.
