The company said that financial results for the year to June 30 will be unaffected by the losing of the contract. The firm added it remains “comfortably on track” to deliver market forecasts in the current financial year.
“Having held this contract for 14 years, we are disappointed not to have been successful in our bid, which we believe was based on commercially realistic terms,” Chair Ronald Series said.
DX said its board believes the firm “remains well-positioned to achieve existing market forecasts” of GBP7.7 million in earnings and revenue of GBP328 million in the next financial year ending June 30, 2020.
Series added: “DX’s turnaround strategy continues to show encouraging progress, and we are comfortably on track to attain market forecasts for the current financial year. We also believe the company is well-positioned to achieve market forecasts for profitability in the next financial year, even after the non-renewal of the contract.”
