Trading Update and Notice of Interim Results

Instem (AIM: INS.L), a leading provider of IT solutions to the global early development healthcare market, provides its trading update for the six month period to 30 June 2015. Instem will be announcing its Interim Results on Tuesday 29 September 2015.

In line with management expectations, the encouraging market dynamics for the pre-clinical and clinical industries which helped to generate a record order book as we entered 2015, began to be converted into positive financial results in the first six months of the financial year and this performance has continued post the period end. Therefore, trading for full-year to 31 December 2015 is expected to be in line with market expectations.

Management will be hosting a presentation for analysts on the day of the results at 9.30am at the offices of Walbrook PR, 4 Lombard Street, London, EC3V 9HD. Analysts wishing to attend the presentation should register their interest by emailing instem@walbrookpr.com or by telephoning 020 7933 8780.

Phil Reason, CEO of Instem plc, commented: “The first half results of the current financial year reflect many of the investments in people and products the Company made during the previous year. We continue to see positive trends across our target markets and Management remains confident it can continue to deliver further growth over the remainder of the year.”
