*UKHotViewsExtra* Triad Group: A challenging year but a positive outlook

Triad logoTriad Group plc had a challenging start to FY2023 (year ended 31 March 2023) but improved in the second half of the year and it continues to make positive progress towards its aim of sustainable organic expansion. For this UKHotViewsExtra article, TechMarketView spoke to Managing Director Adrian Leer about Triad’s performance and prospects.

Founded in 1988, Triad has long been focused on technology-based business change. Consultancy has always been at the heart of the business, but it has also provided staffing services. Over the last few years, it has moved away from transactional IT recruitment to higher-margin consultancy services.

In FY2023, revenue was down 13% year-on-year to £14.9m (2022: £17.0m); gross profit as a percentage of revenue fell by 4.5 percentage points to 23.6% (2022: 28.1%); gross profit was down 27% to £3.5m (2022: £4.8m) and profit before tax reduced to £9k (2022: £1.1m). The performance was attributed to the external economic and political environment resulting in delays in awarding and processing new contracts.
