Mobile marketing software developer Plexure reported strong growth in 2019 with revenue up 44 per cent to $16.9 million.

The NZX-listed company, which received a $5.4 million cornerstone investment from major customer McDonald's last month boosted revenue by $5.1 million.

Plexure reported it was now cash flow positive with $7.3 million of cash on hand at balance date. That increased to $12.7 million immediately post balance date including the investment.

“The company was cash flow positive from operating activities for the second successive year, and customer usage was also at record levels with 110 million users on the company’s platform at year-end,” said CEO Craig Herbison.

Net loss after tax was down 58 per cent to $0.7 million due to the accounting treatment for a convertible note, but  $900,000 excluding that.

Plexure has developed a cloud-based technology platform, in Microsoft's Azure cloud, that powers mobile marketing, helping brands create customer engagement.

It said its technology delivers increases in purchase frequency, average basket value, impulse visits and customer lifetime value for retailers.

The company was now poised for its next round of growth with investments in its product road-map, technology platform and people, it told shareholders.

Disclosure: Rob O'Neill owns a small parcel of Plexure shares.

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

A Kumeu, Auckland, winery was the venue for a Malwarebytes event for partner and prospect MSPs - with some straight shooting on the side. The half-day getaway, which featured an archery competition, lunch and wine-tasting aimed at bringing Malwarebytes' local New Zealand and top and prospective MSP partners together to celebrate recent local successes, and discuss the current state of malware in New Zealand. This was also a unique opportunity for local MSPs to learn about how they can get the most out of Malwarebytes' MSP program and offering, as more Kiwi businesses are targeted by malware.
