An IMS is a statement that the UK Financial Services Authority requires UK companies fully listed on the London Stock Exchange to issue during the first six-month period of the financial year and another statement during the second six month period of the financial year.

Although Datatec is listed on AIM in London, the Board had decided to publish IMS statements in order to provide the financial markets with regular update on the Group’s trading performance. The Group publishes its IMS statements in January and July each year
