The operating performance improved in FY19 with a 4% decrease in the NPAT loss to $0.77 million, down from $0.81 million loss in FY18. In August 2018, Knosys completed the capital raise of $4 million and these funds were used to invest in its sales, marketing, product development and customer success teams. This investment in growth will continue.

Over the past year, Knosys implemented several key growth initiatives which position the Company well for future growth in FY20 and beyond. In FY19, Knosys attained Microsoft Gold Partner status, launched the new KIQ Cloud and opened a new office in Singapore.
The Company believes that FY20 will bring the following:

• Diversification of the customer base into new market sectors including energy and public service organisations;
• Increased customer adoption of the new KIQ cloud products and services;
• Organic growth in revenues from existing customers; and

In addition, the Company will continue to look at synergist acquisitions to expand its solution portfolio with related cloud services focused on engagement, risk and information management.
