The ICSGlobal Ltd (ASX: ICS) share price has leapt up 13% today after the company provided a positive guidance update for FY21.

At the time of writing, the ICSGlobal share is price is trading at $2.09.

Strong performance in FY21

The medical billing company says that the results for November 2020 have continued on a positive trend, and as a consequence the board is in a position to provide guidance for the financial year ending 30 June 2021.

ICSGobal expects net profit after tax (NPAT) to be in the range of $1.5 million to $1.7 million. This would be an increase of 22–38% on the prior year’s NPAT of $1.23 million.

The company remains cautious, noting that in the current environment, risks remain including a worsening of the trading environment due to further COVID-19 impacts, and an adverse foreign exchange movement. Should such risks materialise, the company says it will be necessary to revise this guidance.

ICSGlobal also announced the appointment of Graham Dormer as managing director of its medical billing and collections (MBC) business unit. The company says Mr Dormer is ideally suited to this role, having an exceptional background in business operations, finance, IT, and retail.
