dotDigital’s expansion temporarily erodes margins

dotDigital Group’s acquisition of the Comapi group of companies and its multi-channel messaging software had an initial adverse impact on the group’s operating profit margin in the half year to 31 December 2017.

Nevertheless the group still achieved an impressive operating profit of £4.3 million on gross income of £15.6 million – an operating profit margin of 27.8%, down from 32.8%.

The post-tax profit for the half year was just short of £4 million, an increase of 9.2% on the corresponding period in 2016.
