Our new SNARE sales have continued to grow further since our last announcement and have now exceeded 170% growth against the last full financial year. As soon as we have been able to tally the sales achievement for the full year just completed, we will confirm a most pleasing full sales growth number and 2015 revenue number to the market.
New SNARE sales are expected to continue to grow in the 2016 Financial year and our expectation is that the growing Prophecy revenues including SNARE plus the growing eMite revenues will total approximately $20 million for the 2016 year. Profit growth is expected for both the SNARE business and the acquired eMite business and 2016 is expected to deliver a before tax profit of $8.2 million in total for the group. This expected 2016 result is about double the current expected 2015 result of $9.8 million revenue and $4 million profit before tax.
The eMite product set provides a service intelligence platform which combines analytics, correlations, capacity, performance, availability and SLA management in a single out of the box solution. The eMite software can aggregate from any data source, provide multiple service modules for both business and IT and deliver it all via a fantastic end user driven presentation layer.
The acquisition of eMite provides Prophecy with a coherent bolt-on opportunity that will immediately deepen our data management and analytics domain presence. There are exciting revenue and marketing synergies by leveraging Snare’s existing relationships with enterprise and mid-market clients to cross sell the eMite solution. The combined revenue and profit projections for 2016 push our growth along at a rapid rate to further capitalise on excellent growth achieved in this year.
