Mark Pickett, CEO of Tribal Group, commented:

"Tribal continued to make good progress against its strategic objectives in the first six months of the year. First half performance overall was encouraging - recurring revenue and operating margin were both up. We completed the acquisition of Crimson Consultants, boosting our next generation cloud solution Tribal Edge's functionality and accelerating its speed to market as well as bringing new customers and relationships into the Group. Our outlook for the full year remains unchanged subject to successfully winning the Middle East inspections work in H2, we continue to work on a number of new revenue opportunities, and we remain very excited about the longer-term growth opportunities available to us through the transition to Tribal Edge."

Chief Executive's Review

Introduction

Tribal continued to make good progress against its strategy in the first half of the year, reporting good profitability on slightly reduced revenue, in line with the Board's expectations.

Revenue decreased by 4% to GBP40.4m (2018 H1: GBP42.0m), adjusted operating profit remained consistent at GBP6.3m (2018 H1: GBP6.3m), adjusted operating margin increased by 50 basis points to 15.5% (2018 H1: 15.0%) and statutory profit increased 27% to GBP3.6m.

Almost 40% of Tribal's income is generated outside the UK, and is therefore subject to foreign exchange movement. Using a constant currency basis, applying 2019 exchange rates to 2018 results, the constant currency revenue(1) decreased by 3%, adjusted operating profit increased by 2% and adjusted operating margin increased by 70 basis points.

Strategy & Market Position

Our strategy is to focus on international education sectors Higher Education, Further Education and Vocational institutions, Schools, Government and State bodies, Training Providers, and Employers - and to underpin student success through the provision of expertise, software and services.

The strategic direction of the business was set after a detailed review early in 2016 and our strategic priorities remain unchanged:

   -      Deliver Tribal Edge 
   -      Increase Annual Recurring Revenue 
   -      Grow market share in established and new territories 
   -      Drive improved margin 

There is a structural shift taking place in the industry, with a move away from costly and inefficient on-premise solutions and demand increasing for flexible, cloud-based student information platforms built on an open ecosystem. We continue to work closely with those institutions to ensure Tribal Edge, our next generation cloud platform, meets that demand, and firmly believe that it has the potential to transform the Group's long-term growth prospects.

Tribal Edge

Tribal Edge has seen significant progress in the last six months and the developments were well received at our annual "Empower" conference, attended by more than 500 delegates.

The first Edge module, for the collection and submission of Student Information in Australia, will go live at the end of 2019, followed by the first Applicant Management module in early 2020, and further modules at regular intervals thereafter. We have ongoing beta trials and a strong pipeline of early adopters looking to deploy the new Tribal Edge modules.

We also introduced Tribal Edge "Exchange" which allows partners and existing customers to simply and easily offer their solutions to other Tribal Edge customers. In time, Edge Exchange will offer additional value to our customers and provide incremental revenue streams to Tribal.

Student Information Systems

This segment includes all software-related products and services sold into Higher Education, Further Education, Schools and Work-based and Vocational Learning organisations.

On a constant currency basis, Student Information Systems revenue remained consistent with the previous year at GBP28.7m (2018 H1: GBP28.8m).

The Student Information Systems business has performed well. Overall activity levels in our markets for the replacement or enhancement of student information systems remain stable and we continue to see a steady flow of new opportunities in all sectors.

In the first half of the year, the Group won two new Further Education college contracts, including a significant win at Capital City Colleges Group, one of the largest college groups in the UK. This follows our win in 2018 with Colleges Northern Ireland, consolidating ebs as the leading Further Education student management system in the UK. We also signed a large contract with Sopra Steria to implement our Maytas product to manage the apprenticeship program for the Construction industry Training Board.

A strong account management performance in SITS, with additional modules and components being sold into the existing SITS customer base, continued to drive license sales and Support & Maintenance. However, no new SITS customer sales were made following the five new customers won in the previous 12 months. This was largely as a result of a fall in the number of universities coming to market.

In APAC, our existing business continues to operate well, with additional work obtained from TAFE New South Wales in support of its migration to OneTAFE, a single TAFE entity. Two new ebs customer were won, and in SchoolEdge, we signed a AUS$1.3m contract to support the migration to a new provider, as previously announced.

Education Services

This segment includes non-software services including Quality Assurance Solutions (QAS) inspections, training and benchmarking and i-graduate surveys which are now managed as one business with shared resource; the segment also includes other non-core software services.

Overall revenue in Education Services decreased by 9% on a constant currency basis to GBP11.7m (2018 H1: GBP12.9m).

Our Quality Assurance Solutions (QAS) business continues to be successful in winning new contracts for the provision of school and teacher training inspection services through. Revenue was down in the first half of the year, though, as the Abu Dhabi Ministry for Education curtailed the existing schools inspection contract (ADEK) early, to redefine its requirements for future inspections; this resulted in GBP1m less revenue in H1 2019 than H1 2018. A subsequent tender has been submitted and if the contract decision is positive and timely, Education Services will make up the revenue and operating profit in H2. We also won work in a new emirate, Sharjah, which commenced at the beginning of H2.

In the UK, we secured a new, GBP9m 3-year contract with the DfE for the National Centre for the Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM), and in New Zealand, we secured a one-year extension of the Tertiary Education Council (TEC) benchmarking contract for all. In the US, we secured a new customer with a contract to review the teacher training in the State of Louisiana (US$1.6m).

Management Changes

In March 2019, Mark Pickett was appointed as Chief Executive Officer, having previously been Acting Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer. At the same time, Paul Simpson was appointed Acting Chief Financial Officer. Paul had previously been the Global Financial Controller of Tribal.

We have appointed a Chief Technology Officer, Mike Cope, who joins from University College London where he was CIO, and an existing SITS customer. His experience will be invaluable as we drive adoption of the Tribal Edge modules.

Acquisition

In May 2019, Tribal acquired Crimson Consultants ('Crimson'), the UK's market-leading provider of customer relationship management ('CRM') based solutions to the education market. Crimson's technology provides valuable, additional functionality to Tribal Edge. It will accelerate its speed to market and reduces Tribal's requirement to develop this functionality. Additionally, Crimson brings with it a broad existing customer base and strong relationships with Higher Education universities and Further Education colleges, both existing Tribal customers and competitors, presenting compelling new cross-selling opportunities. The initial consideration was GBP6m with a further GBP4m contingent consideration based on meeting an annual recurring revenue target. The acquisition was financed through existing cash resources and the integration continues to progress well.

Legal Matters

On 25 January 2019, we notified the stock exchange that the Group had received a letter of claim from lawyers acting for a provider of a software platform on which a number of the Company's material products are based. The letter claims that Tribal Education Limited has failed to account properly for royalties under the terms of a Value Added Reseller Agreement dated 1 April 2000 and has breached the terms of that agreement. Whilst no specific amount is claimed, the letter of claim estimated the losses at between GBP15m and GBP30m, which we dispute. These claims date back over a period of more than 18 years during which time the Group has regularly made royalty payments and the Board does not consider the claims to be justified. The Board is vigorously defending the claim and is actively working with the provider to reach a resolution at the earliest opportunity.

On 12 August 2019, the company announced that it had been made aware of the unauthorised disclosure and likely access of personal information of approximately 9,300 individuals, held by Tribal Campus, an Australian subsidiary of the Group, in its capacity as a provider of a student information system to MEGT, an educational organisation in Australia. Upon discovery of the unauthorised disclosure, immediate steps were taken by Tribal to secure the data and external forensic cyber security experts were appointed to investigate the circumstances and scope of the incident. While those investigations are ongoing, the individuals that may have been affected have been contacted and advised on the steps they should take. The Group continues to work closely with the regulator in Australia.

Tribal confirms that this is an isolated incident relating to the migration of data for a single Tribal Campus customer in Australia involving a non-production system. No other customers, products or regions have been affected. Whilst there can be no certainty as to the financial impact, based on current estimates, costs to Tribal are not expected to be material.

Outlook and Current Trading

Despite fewer institutions coming to market for traditional full student information systems both in the UK and Australia/New Zealand, there is growing demand for moving existing systems into the public cloud, providing an opportunity to drive incremental revenue from ebs, Maytas and SITS through the provision of Cloud services.

At the same time, demand for our Tribal Dynamics products, through the acquisition of Crimson Consultants, is strong, with universities increasingly looking to invest in CRM for their Marketing and Recruitment requirements.

Management therefore remains confident that full year earnings will be in line with the Board's expectations.

Looking beyond the full year, the outlook will be affected if large new licence opportunities in Higher Education remain depressed. The team continues to work on a number of bids, but the longer-term nature of the sales cycles may have a slight impact on the expected revenues and operating profit in 2020.

While growth may be slower in the short to medium-term, we continue to make good progress in delivering Tribal Edge in response to the structural shift we are seeing in our industry. It is potentially transformational technology in a market ripe for change, and we remain very excited about the compelling longer-term growth opportunities it will create.

Financial Performance

In the six months ended 30 June 2019 the Group's revenue was down 3.8% to GBP40.4m (2018 H1: GBP42.0m).

Adjusted operating profit was in line at GBP6.3m (2018 H1: GBP6.3m) and operating profit margin increased to 15.5% (2018: 15.0%). To improve understanding of the underlying performance of the business, these numbers are adjusted for certain items, including share based payments, as detailed in the section "Items excluded from adjusted profit figures".

Statutory profit after tax was GBP3.6m (2018 H1: GBP2.9m) and diluted earnings per share were 1.7p (2018 H1: 1.4p).

At the end of the period, the Group had net cash of GBP6.0m, excluding the acquisition of Crimson Consultants this would have increased to GBP12.0m (2018 FY: GBP20.0m; 2018 H1: GBP9.2m).

(1) Adjusted Operating Profit and Adjusted Operating Margin is in respect of continuing operations, excluding intangible asset amortisation of GBP0.6m (2018 H1: GBP0.9m), restructuring costs of GBP0.3m (2018 H1: GBP0.1m), and share based payments GBP0.5m (H1 2018: GBP1.1m)

Over 40% of Tribal's income is generated outside the UK, and is therefore subject to foreign exchange movement. Overall, there was an adverse impact due to foreign exchange fluctuations of GBP0.3m in revenue and GBP0.2m in operating profit, due particularly to the Group's exposure to the Australian dollar, which was on average 6% stronger against GBP sterling in 2019 compared with 2018.

The revenue and operating profit by segment in the table shows the reported results for 2019 H1 and 2018 H1, and the 2018 H1 results restated to "constant currency" using 2019 rates to exclude foreign currency impact. The growth percentages shown are on the 2018 constant currency numbers.

Overall revenue decreased by 3.1% on a constant currency basis to GBP40.4m (2018 H1: GBP41.7m). This was mainly due to Education Services where Middle East contracts were lower, compared to a strong first half in 2018.

Adjusted operating profit before central overheads decreased by 3.3% to GBP11.8m (2018 H1: GBP12.2m).

Central overheads, representing costs in HR, IT, Finance, Marketing and Management that can't be directly attributed to lines of business, reduced to GBP5.6m (2018 H1: GBP6.0m). We continue to drive operational efficiencies and cost savings operating on a centralised basis globally, helping to improve margin without impacting the Group's ability to serve our customers or grow, for example absorbing the acquisition of Crimson Consultants.

Adjusted operating profit increased by 1.6% on a constant currency basis to GBP6.3m (GBP2018 H1: GBP6.2m).

Adjusted operating margin, which is traditionally stronger in the first half, increased by 50 basis points to 15.5%; excluding the impact of foreign currency movement it has increased by 70 basis points, as ongoing efficiencies and cost savings continue to benefit profitability.

Student Information Systems: On a constant currency basis, Student Information Systems revenue remained consistent with the previous year at GBP28.7m (2018 H1: GBP28.8m).

License sales decreased by GBP1.4m on a constant currency basis. In EMEA sales increased by GBP0.2m reflecting strong account management sales with existing customers and the recognition of new license sales in the previous year Canterbury Christ Church University, University of Portsmouth, Queen Mary's University, Ravensbourne University London and Colleges Northern Ireland where license revenue is recognised under IFRS15 as the implementation is completed. In APAC sales fell by GBP1.7m reflecting the completion of work in relation to prior years sales and the lack of new customers coming to the market.

Implementation is in line on a constant currency basis, reflecting that the delivery of the large contracts won in 2018 as noted above. Callista continued to perform well with good margins although accelerated development work was slightly lower than 2018.

Support & Maintenance revenue increased 5% on a constant currency basis. This reflects the new license and account management sales achieved, together with the contractual annual inflationary uplift.

Cloud revenue has increased by 21% as more customers, including newer contract wins, include Cloud solutions.

Overall operating profit increased by 2% to GBP9.2m on a constant currency basis (2018 H1: GBP9.0m) and operating margin increased to 32% (2018 H1: 31%).

Education Services: Overall revenue in Education Services decreased by 9% on a constant currency basis to GBP11.7m (2018 H1: GBP12.9m).

QAS revenue decreased by 5% to GBP9.1m (2018 H1: GBP9.5m). Strong performance on UK contracts, coupled with increased performance in the US and Professional Development & Training, was offset by a reduction in Middle East revenue representing almost 50% of revenue.

i-graduate revenue decreased by 29% to GBP0.8m (2018 H1: GBP1.2m), mainly driven by the return of the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) contract to HESA who have decided to manage inhouse. The revenues for i-graduate are seasonal with a stronger second half, although the southern hemisphere international student barometer will be lower as the majority of institutions partake every other year.

Overall operating profit decreased by 16% to GBP2.6m on a constant currency basis (2018 H1: GBP3.2m) and operating margin decreased to 23% (2018 H1: 25%). Improved profitability in i-graduate due to restructuring and costs savings from operating as one business with QAS have been offset by reduced margins on QAS contract, notably in the Middle East.

(1) Adjusted Operating Profit and Adjusted Operating Margin is in respect of continuing operations which excludes "Other Items" charges of GBP1.9m (H1 2018: charge of GBP2.1m).

(2) Annually Recurring Revenue is calculated assuming maintenance revenue is received equally throughout the year.

(3) Committed income relates to the total value of orders which have been signed on or before, but not delivered by, 30 June 2019, based on the Total Contract Value, even though customers may be permitted, under certain circumstances, to reduce their commitment at a future date. This is reported on an IFRS15 basis and represents the best estimate of business expected to be delivered and recognised in future periods, and includes License sales, Implementation work and two years of Support & Maintenance revenue.

(4) 2018 committed income and revenue / average FTE comparatives are as at 31 December 2018

Annual recurring revenue (ARR) includes Support & Maintenance fees paid on all software and Cloud hosting services, increase by 7% on a constant currency basis to GBP19.9m (2018 H1: GBP18.5m). The growth includes the benefit of new license sales in 2018 and contractual inflationary uplift applied annually.

Committed income at 30 June 2019 this increased by GBP1.9m on a constant currency basis to GBP123.5m (2018 FY: GBP121.6m). The growth includes the benefit of new License sales in 2018 and contractual inflationary uplift applied annually to Support & Maintenance, but is impacted by GBP3.6m due to the reduction in the term life of the contract with Callista to 2.5 years. The acquisition of Crimson Consultants has added GBP3.0m of ARR from Software-as-a-Service sales and committed professional services (implementation) work.

One-off items: The adjusted operating profit in 2018 benefitted by GBP0.4m from a number of one-off impacts which were not repeated in the first half of 2019. This included GBP1.0m bad debt releases, GBP(0.4)m of revenue contingencies, GBP0.3m of other provisions and GBP(0.5)m data centre exit costs.

Product development costs: The Group spent GBP5.8m on product development, of which GBP2.8m was capitalised in relation to Tribal Edge, no further capitalised development took place on SchoolEdge (2018 H1: GBP5.2m spent; GBP1.7m capitalised: GBP1.5m Tribal Edge, GBP0.3m SchoolEdge). The Group spent GBP2.9m on current products including SITS, ebs, SchoolEdge and Maytas, this was GBP0.6m lower than the previous year (2018: GBP3.5m) due to increased efficiency across all products.

Items excluded from adjusted profit figures: Certain items not directly related to the trading business or regarded as exceptional in nature have been removed from the adjusted profit figure and disclosed as "Other Items" on the Income Statement to provide greater understanding of the Group's underlying performance. The main adjustments are as follows:

-- Share based payments charges (including employer related taxes) decreased to GBP0.5m (2018 H1: GBP1.1m), and are excluded from the Adjusted Operating profit. The charges in the current year relate to the Long-Term Incentive Plan options (LTIPs) which were granted to the executive and senior management teams in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

-- Amortisation of IFRS3 Intangibles charge in relation to IFRS3 intangible assets of GBP0.6m (2018 H1: GBP0.9m) arose from separately identifiable assets recognised as part of previous acquisitions. The assets principally relate to software and customer relationships and are amortised over their expected life which was determined in the year the acquisition took place.

-- Restructuring and associated costs relate to the restructuring of the Group's operations, principally in Australia, which was completed early in 2019, and includes a charge for redundancy costs of GBP0.3m (2018 H1: GBP0.1m).

-- Legal costs: relate to the legal fees incurred in relation to the items mentioned previously in the Legal Matters section.

-- Acquisition costs: include amounts relating to corporate activity in the period, specifically the acquisition of Crimson Consultants Limited.

Operating cash inflow for the period was GBP(2.7)m (2018: GBP0.5m). This reflects the Group's working capital profile, and the additional cash requirements in the first half of the year; most Support & Maintenance and Cloud Services renewals are invoiced and collected towards the end of the calendar year. In QAS there was one large contract receipt totalling GBP1.9m that was due in June but was not received until July, and exit payments were also made in relation to the restructuring in Australia. Cash conversion is expected to normalise in the second half of the year.

Share Options and Share Capital: On 7 June 2019, 3,360,563 share options were granted to executive and senior management, including 760,563 nil-cost share options to Mark Pickett, Chief Executive Officer as part of his ongoing remuneration. As at 30 June 2019, there were 196,051,181 shares issued (2018 FY: 196,051,181).

Earnings per share: Diluted earnings per share increased by 21% to 1.7p (2018 H1: 1.4p).

Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations before other costs, including intangible asset amortisation, restructuring costs and share based payment charges, which reflects the Group's underlying trading performance, increased by 14% to 2.5p (2018 H1: 2.2p).

Dividends: The annual dividend for 2018 increased to 1.1p per share (2017: 1.0p per share), paid by the Company in May 2019; the Board reaffirms its intention to continue a progressive dividend policy, with a single dividend payment each year following annual results.

Notes to the condensed consolidated financial information

for the six months to 30 June 2019

   1.         General information 

The condensed consolidated financial information for the six months ended 30 June 2019 was approved by the Board of Directors on 19 August 2018. This condensed consolidated interim financial information does not comprise statutory accounts within the meaning of section 434 of the Companies Act 2006.

Statutory accounts for the year ended 31 December 2018 were approved by the Board of Directors on 19 March 2019. A copy of the statutory accounts for that year has been delivered to the Registrar of Companies. The auditor reported on those accounts: its report was unqualified, and did not contain a statement under section 498(2) or (3) of the Companies Act 2006.

   2.         Accounting policies 

The condensed consolidated set of financial statements included in this half-yearly financial report has been prepared in accordance with the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the Financial Services Authority.

The condensed consolidated financial information should be read in conjunction with the annual financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2018 which have been prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union.

In preparing these condensed interim financial statements, the significant judgements made by management in applying the Group's accounting policies and the key sources of estimation uncertainty were as stated within the consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2018.

The accounting policies applied are consistent with those of the annual financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2018 with the exception of the Leases policy. The introduction of IFRS16 has resulted in a new policy as follows:

All leases are treated as finance leases unless they are classified as a short lease. Right-of-use assets are created by reference to the lease liability, less adjustments for future dilapidation costs. Right-of-use assets are amortised on a straight line basis over the period of the lease, the amortisation period being equivalent to the length of the lease. The implicit rate used in the calculations is 1.8% + LIBOR.

   3.         Going concern 

The Directors, having considered the cash-flow forecast, and while noting the Group has net current liabilities, have performed a risk assessment of likely downside scenarios and associated mitigating actions, and have a reasonable expectation that adequate financial resources will continue to be available for the foreseeable future. Thus, they continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the financial statements.

   4.         Segmental analysis 

Information reported to the Group's Chief Executive for the purposes of resource allocation and assessment of segment performance is focused on the nature of each type of activity. The Group's reportable segments and principal activities under IFRS 8 are detailed below:

Student Information ("SIS") represents the delivery of software and subsequent maintenance and support services and the activities through which we deploy and configure our software for our customers; and

Education Services representing inspection and review services which support the assessment of educational delivery, previously Quality Assurance Solutions (QAS), and a portfolio of performance improvement tools and services, including analytics, software solutions, facilities and asset management, previously i-graduate.

In accordance with IFRS 8 'Operating Segments' information on segment assets is not shown as this is not provided to the Chief Operating decision-maker. Inter-segment sales are charged at prevailing market prices.

The accounting policies of the reportable segments are the same as the Group's accounting policies. Segment profit represents the profit earned by each segment, without the allocation of central administration costs, including Directors' salaries, finance costs and income tax expense. This is the measure reported to the Group's Chief Executive for the purpose of resource allocation and assessment of segment performance.

Within Education Services revenues of approximately 3% (31 December 2018: 5%) have arisen from the Segments largest customer: within SIS revenues of approximately 4% (31 December 2018: 6%) have arisen from the Segments largest customer.

   5.       Effect of new accounting standards 

The Group adopted IFRS16 "Leases" with effect from 1 January 2019. This has resulted in the group recognising right-of-use assets and lease liabilities. For leases currently classified as operating leases, under previous accounting requirements the group did not recognise related assets or liabilities, and instead spread the lease payments on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The Group has applied the modified retrospective approach method and has only recognised leases on the balance sheet as at 1 January 2019. Comparative amounts for the year prior to the first adoption have not been restated. In addition it has been decided to measure right-of-use assets by reference to the measurement of the lease liability on that date, less adjustments for future dilapidation costs. The key assumptions used in this assessment are as follows: Straight line amortisation of the right-of-use assets; amortisation period being equivalent to the length of the lease; and implicit rate used in the calculations being 1.8% + LIBOR.

The effects of adopting IFRS 16 for the periods ending 30 June 2019 are as follows:

 
                                                                   30 June          30 June

IAS1, paragraph 97, requires separate disclosure of such items that are considered material by nature or value in the financial statements. As such, 'other items' are not part of the Group's underlying trading activities and include the following for the six months ended 30 June 2018:

Acquisition costs: The numbers include amounts relating to corporate activity in the period. (30 June 2019: GBP135,000; 30 June 2018 GBPnil; 31 December 2018: GBP62,000).

Share based payments: The numbers above include the movement in associated employers taxes accrual (30 June 2019: GBP19,000; 30 June 2018: GBP155,000; 31 December 2018: GBP17,000) and the cash paid on dividends on share options that have met performance conditions (30 June 2019: GBP106,000; 30 June 2018: GBP46,000; 31 December 2018: GBP47,000). When the Company declares a cash dividend, some option holders are entitled to a 'dividend equivalent'. This is a payment in cash and/or additional shares with a value determined by reference to the dividends that would have been paid on the vested shares in respect of dividend record dates occurring during the period between the grant of the Award and the date on which it becomes exercisable.

Other exceptional items: Amounts principally reflect the costs arising in respect of the restructuring of the Group's operations and the legal costs associated with the current contingent liability (see note 19). The restructuring program has been be executed in the first half of 2019 and associated costs have been provided for. Amounts relate mainly to provision for redundancy costs. (30 June 2019; GBP313,000; 30 June 2018: GBP59,000; 31 December 2018: GBP985,000).

Amortisation of IFRS3 intangibles: Amortisation arising on the fair value of intangible assets acquired is separately disclosed as other items. (30 June 2019: GBP575,000; 30 June 2018 GBP909,000; 31 December 2018: GBP1,787,000).

Financing charges: Consistent with the treatment of movements in deferred consideration, the unwind of the discount on deferred consideration is separately presented as other financing costs in the income statement (30 June 2019: GBP86,000; 30 June 2018 GBP60,000; 31 December 2017: GBP106,000).

Financing income: Amounts relating to settlement gains on defined benefit schemes (30 June 2019: GBPnil; 30 June 2018 GBPnil; 31 December 2018: GBP380,000).

Taxation: the tax credit arising on the above items is presented on a consistent basis with the underlying cost or credit to which it relates and therefore is also presented separately on the face of the income statement.

Diluted earnings per share only reflects the dilutive effect of share options for which performance criteria have been met.

As at 30 June 2019 there are 5,301,844 options that have met vesting criteria and can be exercised. Together with other potentially dilutive shares, based on options that have been granted but have not yet met vesting criteria of 1,838,220, the total number of potentially dilutive shares is 7,140,064 (31 December 2018: 7,140,064). In addition, there are a further 3,405,996 (31 December 2018: 3,405,996) potentially dilutive matching share options that have been granted and have met vesting criteria as at 30 June 2019.

The adjusted basic and diluted earnings per share figures shown on the condensed consolidated income statement are included as the directors believe that they provide a better understanding of the underlying trading performance of the Group.

A reconciliation of how these figures are calculated is set out below.

The Group tests annually for impairment, or more frequently if there are indicators that goodwill could be impaired. At the half year, a review has been undertaken to ascertain if any indicators have arisen of potential impairments.

Provisions are recognised when the Group has a present obligation as a result of a past event, and it is probable that the Group will be required to settle the obligation. Provisions are measured at the Directors' best estimate of the expenditure required to settle the obligation at the balance sheet date, and are discounted to present value where the effect is material.

Property related provision relates to the dilapidation costs arising from exiting leasehold properties, under IFRS 16.

Restructuring provision represent amounts provided in respect of the Group's restructuring and reorganisation and principally reflect redundancy costs.

   15.          Acquisition of subsidiary 

On 9 May 2019, the Group acquired 100% of the issued share capital of Crimson Holdings Limited and its subsidiary Crimson Consultants Limited (Crimson), a company incorporated in the UK that is a leading provider of customer relationship management (CRM) based solutions to the education market.

This transaction has been accounted for by the acquisition method of accounting. This comprises an initial cash consideration of GBP6.0m and a deferred contingent consideration of GBP4.0m (the discounted figure at acquisition being GBP3.376m) which is payable on the annual recurring revenue (ARR) growth of the acquired business. Deferred contingent consideration that becomes due shall be satisfied in the period from March 2020 to March 2021.

Due to the timing of the acquisition, the acquisition accounting adjustments were not complete as at 30 June 2019, however, will be finalised prior to 31 December 2019.

The provisional carrying amount of each class of Crimson Consultants Limited's assets before combination is set out below:

The initial cash consideration paid to Crimson was satisfied through existing cash balances.

Crimson Consultants Limited contributed revenue of GBP0.4m and operating profit of GBPnil to the Group for the period between the date of acquisition and the balance sheet date. Acquisition related costs amounted for GBP0.1m.

Had the acquisition occurred on 1 January 2019, the Group's revenue would have increased by GBP1.4m and its operating profit reduced by GBP0.1m.

   19.          Contingent liabilities 

On 24 January 2019 the Group received a letter of claim from lawyers acting for a provider of a software platform on which a number of the Group's material products are based. The letter claims that Tribal Education Limited, a subsidiary of Tribal Group plc, has failed to account properly for royalties under the terms of a Value Added Reseller Agreement dated 1 April 2000 and has breached the terms of that agreement. Whilst no specific amount is claimed the letter of claim estimates the losses at between GBP15 million and GBP30 million. These claims date back over a period of more than 18 years during which the Group has regularly made royalty payments and the Directors do not consider the claims to be justified. The Directors intend to defend these claims vigorously at this stage and are of the opinion that the claims can be successfully resisted. The information usually required by IAS 37 Provisions, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets is not disclosed on the grounds that it can be expected to prejudice seriously the outcome of the litigation.

From time to time the Group is subject to potential litigation claims. On the basis of legal advice, claims are being robustly contested as to both liability and quantum. A provision of GBP0.2m (30 June 2018: GBPnil, 31 December 2018: GBPnil) has been made for defending these claims, where appropriate.

At any time, the Group is overseeing a portfolio of customer implementation projects. Such projects may be complex, multi-phase projects giving rise to significant operational risks which the Group must manage. Such risks may, in certain instances, lead to potential negotiations or disputes with customers which may give rise to consequential financial or commercial obligations or liabilities arising.

The Company and its subsidiaries have provided performance guarantees issued by their banks on their behalf, in the ordinary course of business totalling GBP1.1m (30 June 2018: GBP1.5m, 31 December 2018: GBP1.0m). These are not expected to result in any material financial loss.

   20.          Related party disclosures 

Transactions between the Company and its subsidiaries, which are related parties, have been eliminated on consolidation and are not disclosed in this note.

On 7 June 2019, Tribal Group plc ("the Company") granted nil-cost options over a total of 760,563 ordinary shares (representing approximately 0.40% of the Company's issued shares) to Mark Pickett under the terms of its 2010 Long Term Incentive. This award has been granted subject to performance conditions based on the Group's Adjusted Operating Profit over a performance period ending 31 December 2019. This award will, ordinarily, vest on the third anniversary of the grant.

The remuneration of the key management personnel of the Group is set out below in aggregate for each of the categories specified in IAS 24 'Related Party Disclosures'. The members of the Group Board and the Group's Executive Board are considered to be the key management personnel of the Group.

   21.          Seasonality 

The overall performance for the second half of the year will be lower than for the first half as a result of phasing of Education Services school inspections. In addition, i-graduate revenues and profit are skewed to the fourth quarter of the calendar year, in line with the start of the academic year.
