“The group’s exposure to overseas markets continues to provide bigger and more networked client opportunities along with greater margin attainment,” stated the results.

The group’s top 10 clients represent 47% of total revenue, while the top 20 clients represent 55% of total revenue. Clients include Aldi, Adobe, Facebook, Google, Hyundai and McAfee.

Within the group BMF reported new business wins during the period of, Pacific Smiles and Petbarn. Orchard had new business wins of Val Morgan, Uniting Financial Services and Transport for NSW during the period,  while smaller agencies Hotwire, The Leading Edge, Frank and CPR secured new accounts with  Cloudflare, Secure Code Warrior and Beam Suntory.

Enero Group CEO, Brent Scrimshaw, said that the results were something “to be proud of” and acknowledge the efforts of the brands and teams during this period.

He added that there were benefits received to operating costs as a result of the ongoing travel restrictions,  Australian Government Job Keeper subsidies amounting to $1.1 million received in Australia (limited to specific businesses in group and only available in first quarter of FY2021) and from having strong client sector exposure to technology, healthcare and consumer staples, where activity level remains high.

“These results demonstrate the group’s strategy of integration, transformation and acceleration is working and we will continue to focus on growing our core brands in the second half of the year, building further scale and additional digital capabilities across markets with more integrated services from our complimentary brands,” he said. “We have a proactive M&A strategy in play, however, with ongoing travel restrictions we are stepping through any future opportunities cautiously to ensure the right business and cultural alignment.”
