-- Solid cash position: The cash balance at 31 December was $3.6m, which is after the $1m final cash payment to the Libero vendors in Q2 and $0.26m of equity contributions.
-- New wins in KM: New customer wins in Q2 in Knowledge Management and increased purchase orders from existing customers increase annualised revenue by over $230K.
-- Acquisitions performing well: GreenOrbit continues to deliver revenue uplift from an increased Annual Revenue Per User (“ARPU”) on annual subscription renewals and Libero revenues tracked ahead of expectations in the first full quarter contribution in Q2. Cross selling and cost sharing opportunities are being realised as planned.
