The Data#3 Limited (ASX: DTL) share price is lower in early morning trading despite a positive update on its FY21 result.

At the time of writing, the business technology solutions company’s shares are fetching $5.37 a share, down 4.79%.

How did Data#3 perform for the 2021 financial year?

Investors are pushing Data#3 shares lower during the morning after digesting the company’s latest announcement.

According to its statement, Data#3 advised it expects to report another record full-year result for FY21.

Unconsolidated Net Profit After Tax (NPAT) is estimated to be roughly $36.8 million, reflecting an 8% increase on FY20 ($34.1 million).

This is despite industry-wide product delivery delays impacting the business, in particular during the second half of FY21.

The company has dealt with a global computer chip shortage at a time when demand has spiked earlier than anticipated.

Consequently, Data#3 has encountered a larger product backlog order at year’s end. This is forecast to lead to a profit of around $3 million which will be realised in FY22.

Traditionally, the company sees demand for its devices jump during the fourth quarter of each year. However, supply constraints for a number of products are predicted to continue in the new financial year.

Data#3 revealed its audited full-year results for the 2021 financial year will be released on 19 August. In addition, management noted it will maintain its dividend payout ratio to shareholders as in previous years.

At today’s price, Data#3 has a market capitalisation of roughly $868 million, with 153 million shares on its registry.
