The pipeline of new business continues to grow, and the Group has several further contract opportunities that could close before the fiscal year end. The integration of Authlogics (as announced on 10 October 2022) is on track and embedding well.

Klaas van der Leest, CEO of Intercede, commented:

“I am pleased to report continued progress against our strategic plan and in particular the positive news on our Group’s efforts so far in FY23. We now expect revenue and profits to be ahead of current market expectations. This is a testament to the Group’s continued investment in MyID and focused execution on our ‘6C strategy’, centred around Colleagues, Customers, Channels, Code, Cash and Corporate Development. With over two months to run until year end, the Group has several opportunities to close further deals which could enhance our results further.”
