Shareholders in Onthehouse Holdings Limited have been told annual revenue from continuing operations was steady compared to the previous corresponding period from $21.5m in FY2015 to $21.4m in FY2016.

Its EBITDA excluding transaction costs and other expenses from continuing operations were down 3 percent on pcp from $7.9m in FY2015 to $7.7m in FY2016. EBITDA margins from continuing operations decreased on pcp from 37 percent to 36 percent.

Its underlying Net Profit (After Tax) from continuing operations was down from $5.3m to $3.3m as a result of increased amortisation and a reduction in income tax benefits.

The Consumer Online division was sold during the year resulting in a total loss from discontinued operations of $6.1m in FY2016 improving from the pcp loss of $13.6m in FY2015.

In February 2016, the Group announced its decision to sell or close the Consumer Online division. The sale was completed in May 2016 for gross contract price of $3 million.

"The sale of the cash-burning COD business meant that Onthehouse could devote 100% of its strong cash flows and focus on growing the revenue and profitability of its Real Estate Software division," Tony Scotton,the chairman at Onthehouse Holdings said.

"Onthehouse is now well positioned and has access to funds to grow Console’s portfolio of software products’ market share and explore new revenue opportunities – including unlocking the value of the real estate agent, landlord, tradespeople and tenant relationships managed by the Console GatewayLive property management software."

The bid by the Macquarie-led Consortium to purchase the company will go to a meeting next month.

More than 3,900 real estate agents are customers of Onthehouse real estate software, which includes Console GatewayLive, a locally-installed property management software program, ClientManager a cloud-based sales customer relationship management software solution, and WebChoice, a cloud based platform to deliver websites for real estate agencies.

Onthehouse’s Console GatewayLive software delivers 84 percent of Onthehouse’s revenue.
