What’s driving the Cellnet share price higher?

The Cellnet share price is marching higher today after the company advised it was continuing to see strong momentum in the month of November.

Cellnet said that revenue for last month saw a 27% year-on-year increase to $14.78 million. This was underpinned by robust retail sales that included the iPhone 12 launch and console gaming accessories.

Following an uplift in revenue, net profit before tax rose to $1.19 million, reflecting a 174% year-on-year surge. During the July to October period, the company reported net profit before tax of $1.6 million.

For the 11 months so far, favourable trading conditions have led Cellnet to a net profit before tax of $2.79 million. This compares to the $2.04 million achieved on the same period last year.

Management commentary

Cellnet chief executive Dave Clark welcomed the strong recent performance, saying:

We continue to be positive about the current financial year, with the business performing very well across all categories and strong demand being experienced in the lead-up to Christmas.

About the Cellnet share price

While the company appears to be making tailwinds, the Cellnet share price has dropped heavily over the past year. Reaching 17.5 cents last December, the current share price represents a decline of almost 60%.

While COVID-19 significantly impacted the retail industry in 2020, Cellnet is beginning to see an uptick on sales post-pandemic.
