Getech continues to close new sales despite oil price volatility

Getech Group PLC (LON:GTC) said it continued to close new sales, without negative order book revisions, despite the recent volatility in the oil industry.

The geosciences firm noted that oil companies cut US$178bn from their budgets, including a 35% reduction in capital expenditure, following the recent oil price plunge.

Getech cut monthly costs by 26% and said it is well-positioned to navigate further deterioration of the markets.

In the year to December 31, revenue fell 24% to £6mln because several transactions did not close in 2019 as expected.

The previous year £225,000 profit swung to a £3mln loss before tax because of a non-cash £3mln write-down related to the acquisition of upstream oil and gas consultancy ERCL.

Net cash at year-end was £2.7mln.

Shares rose 6% to 19.01p early on Friday.
