Ken Scott, Chief Executive of ILX Group plc, commented:

"A year ago it was clear to the Board that we faced some pressing challenges.  The business was performing well but set against a difficult macro economic backdrop.  The upturn in the UK still looks some time away but outside of the UK is a different matter as many areas around the world are more vibrant and are showing good signs of recovery.

In the year to 31 March, 2010, revenues attributable to the Group’s e-learning software products accounted for 44% of revenues and 62% of gross profit.  All of these revenues come from the Company’s proprietarysoftware products. It is clear that the Group’s unique strength lies in this area and the development of software products and new technologies in e-Learning will provide the principal focus for growth going forward, allied to an increasing contribution from overseas sales.

Revenues across the Group for the current year to date are up 10% and overall, the outlook is one of steady improvement."
