Data#3 anticipates strong earnings growth

Investors are pushing Data#3 shares higher on Tuesday morning after digesting the company’s latest announcement.

According to its release, Data#3 advised it expects to report a record performance for the half-year result for FY22.

Consolidated net profit before tax (NPBT) is forecasted to be slightly ahead of the top end guidance previously reported.

In October, Data#3 informed investors at its annual general meeting (AGM) that it was predicting a NPBT of $15 million to $18 million.

If this is achieved, NPBT for the H1 FY22 period along with earning per share would represent around a 30% increase than H1 FY21 levels.

A global computer chip shortage was experienced throughout 2021 when demand has spiked earlier than anticipated. Consequently, Data#3 has encountered a larger product backlog order for the year’s end. This led to a profit of around $3 million to be realised in FY22.

Data#3 revealed its audited full-year results for the 2021 financial year will be released on 17 February. In addition, management noted that it will announce its interim dividend to shareholders.
