The Enero Group Ltd (ASX: EGG) share price has a new 1-year high. The positive price movement comes after the company released a trading update for this financial year.

At the time of writing, shares in the marketing and communications services company are trading for $3.45 – up 11.65%. Earlier today, the Enero share price hit a 52-week high of $3.76, up 21.7% on yesterday’s closing price.

Let’s take a closer look at today’s news.

Enero share price up as revenue increases nearly 23%

In its investor presentation, Enero provided the following update:

In the first quarter of FY22, the company made $45.6 million in net revenue. This is a 22.6% jump on the prior corresponding period (pcp)
Operating earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) jumped 50% on the pcp to $14.7 million
The EBITDA margin increased 5.9 percentage points to 32.2%.

These results are clearly encouraging for investors, at least judging by the rising Enero share price today.

What’s the outlook and is this affecting the Enero share price?

Looking forward, Enero says it continues “to see a strong pipeline of new business opportunities”, especially in the healthcare, technology, and consumer business-to-business markets.

The company goes on to say that inorganic growth continues to be a strong focus for Enero. Inorganic growth is a result of mergers and acquisitions rather than an expanding customer base.

Finally, Enero says ongoing uncertainty relating to COVID-19 may place pressure on the company’s bottom line. Enero cites possible wage growth cost pressures and increasing discretionary travel expenses as borders open up.

Despite these headwinds, the Enero share price is rising today.
