A good 1HY23 result

In 1HY23, Cirrus recorded $56.7m in revenue (up 27%), $2.2m in EBITDA (up from an $0.4m loss in 1HY22) and a $1.3m pre-tax profit (up from a $2.2m loss in 1HY22). The company closed the period with a healthy balance sheet, with $9.5m in cash and zero debt.

Cirrus Networks credited the market demand, its strong market position and more disciplined focus on overhead spend for its good results. It guided to a strong 2HY23 as well.

The company’s share rose by more 20% this morning, which bodes well for shareholders of other ASX companies that are anticipating solid results over the next few weeks.
