Attura Limited (ASX:ATA) is up 8% in early afternoon trade eyeing 71cps as the company announces a $1m upgrade to expected FY22 revenue from $11.7-$12.3m to $13.5m.
Attura specialises in designing patented software and IT solutions to companies undertaking digital transformations.
The company's revenue, or EBIT, upgrade to $13.5m comes as better than expected March and April results appear underpinned by higher than expected operational performance despite COVID-19.
The company also its receipt of $600,000 for a project that closed in Q4 of FY22; as well as lower than expected impact on demand for its services from the public sector during the Federal Election gatekeeping period, when government services tend to wind-down.
Attura has also announced this week it will acquire Perth-based Hayes Information Systems and Communications Pty Ltd.
Revenue figures for Atturra exclude IPO costs, employee share offers and performance rights issues; Atturra listed on the ASX in December last year.
The company is profitable so far, with its YTD growth up 17.50%.
Atturra listed at 62cps. Its share price fell below the float price twice early on in 2022; once in January and then again in February, but has remained above 60cps since late February.
With $37.2m cash on hand and a $134m market cap, the company is left with an enterprise value of some $97m.
Its profitability separates it from competitors in the tech sector as a market-wide selloff hits tech stocks particularly hard.
