Trading Update 
PHSC plc ("the Group"), a leading provider of health, safety, hygiene and
environmental consultancy services and security solutions to the public and
private sectors, is pleased to announce an update on its performance for the
financial year ended 31 March 2014. 
These indicative figures are per management accounts, currently unaudited. 
Consolidated Group revenue for the period was around GBP 7.6m representing an
increase of approximately 30% over what was achieved during the previous year
(GBP 5.8m). 
EBITDA was around 22% higher than the previous year at GBP 0.73m, compared with
GBP 0.60m last year. 
Net assets were approximately GBP 6.4m, including cash of GBP 0.71m. 
Stephen King, CEO, said: "Subject to the outcome of the financial audit, the
Board is pleased to be able to report a further improvement in revenues and
profitability year-on-year. The outcome is in line with our management
budgeting. We have benefitted from full year contributions from our two most
recent acquisitions (QCS International Limited and B to B Links Limited) and
the legacy health and safety businesses have broadly performed in line with
"Bank balances are substantially higher than at this time last year, bolstered
by a share placing last autumn that generated GBP 480,000 after expenses
followed by improved cash flow from trading activities. Final instalments
related to the two acquisitions mentioned above fall due during Q2 of 2014/15.
These sums cannot be calculated until the end of the respective earn-out
periods. If performance is sustained at recent levels for the remainder of the
period, final payments would total around GBP 425,000. Our cash flow forecast
indicates that these payments can be met from existing bank balances without
adversely affecting the cash requirements of normal trading activities. 
"More details about individual subsidiary performances will be given at the
time of our Preliminary Announcement of Results, expected in the middle of July
