Altium (ALU) has posted its half-yearly unaudited sales and revenue figures for FY21, revealing it endured a tough start to the financial year.

Despite the first-half’s headwinds, Altium has maintained its full-year guidance.

Overall, Altium’s first-half revenue for FY21 was down three per cent to US$89.6 million (roughly A$11.7 million).

Notable declines include its American operations revenue, which slipped 10 per cent in the first half of FY21.

Its Nexus printed circuit board product also recorded a 14 per cent slow down in growth, with the majority of ALU’s projected deals occurring in the second half of the financial year, according to a statement.

The company has mostly attributed “extreme” COVID-19 conditions and a challenging economic environment as reasons for the drop in revenues.

Despite the results, Altium’s sentiment remains positive and is maintaining its full year guidance.

However, Electronic manufacturing managed to stage a rebound, with Octopart achieving 19 per cent revenue growth for the half, while board and systems revenue remained flat year on year.

Altium says it will release its audited half-year results on February 15, 2021.

Altium shares are down 4.95 per cent trading at $29.26 cents each at 11:02 am AEDT.
