Stilo International plc (“Stilo”, the “Group” or the “Company”) today announces its unaudited Interim Results for the six months ended 30 June 2019. The Company provides software tools and cloud services that help organisations create and process structured content in XML format, so that it can be more easily stored, managed, re-used, translated and published to multiple print and digital channels.


  • Reduction in sales revenues to £638,000 (2018: £707,000)
  • Operating costs remain level £656,000 (2018: £657,000), excluding capitalised development costs for AuthorBridge of £110,000 (2018: £99,000)
  • Loss before tax for the period of £29,000 (2018: £42,000 profit)
  • Total comprehensive income for the period remained positive at £14,000 (2018: £5,000) subsequent to favourable foreign currency translation differences

  • No interim dividend declared


  • Migrate customers for the period include Mastercard, ARRIS/CommScope, Applied Materials, Visa, GE Healthcare and Deltek.
  • AuthorBridge customers in the US include IBM, Kaplan Professional Education and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. A major release of AuthorBridge shipped in June 2019 and it is not expected to further capitalise AuthorBridge development costs beyond this date.
  • OmniMark sales include European Parliament, Qantas and Embraer.

David Ashman, Chairman, commenting on the Company’s performance, stated:

In our Trading Update of 23 May 2019 we indicated that sales were slower than planned and that a loss was expected for the half-year period.

We are currently expecting trading to continue slowly for the remainder of 2019 and need to take measures to reduce our operating costs wherever possible. Of primary importance is the proposal to de-list from AIM and re-register as a private limited company, subject to shareholders’ approval. This is the subject of an associated announcement issued immediately following the release of these interim results and is expected to generate potential annualised cost savings of over £120,000. Additional cost-reduction activities include organisational and management changes that are currently underway.

The Company continues to develop high-quality software tools used by leading organisations around the world. With a reduced cost base and increased sales to be driven by the recruitment to the newly created role of VP Sales & Marketing, it is our intention to generate steady ongoing profits and resume the payment of dividends to shareholders as soon as possible.
