This is down $4.6 million on the company 's (ASX: DTL) 2013 financial year result of $12.1 million.
The figure represents a second half NPAT of approximately $4.9 million, following $2.6 million in the first half, and is consistent with previous guidance issued by the Data#3 to the ASX.
“A very strong fourth quarter has allowed us to deliver a solid result in a difficult market, producing a full year result that was heavily skewed to the second half,” Data#3 managing director, John Grant, said.
Data#3 chairman, Richard Anderson, added, “Cash flow in the 2014 financial year was very strong, further strengthening the balance sheet. Subject to final audit we expect to maintain the dividend payout ratio in line with the previous year.”
