Shares of Cornerstone, a foreign exchange and payments solution provider, surged nearly 35% today (Monday) on the London Stock Exchange following a trading update that suggested their revenue and EBITDA for the fiscal year 2023 (FY23) will be "materially above current market expectations." Although the company did not provide specific figures, this information was sufficient to spark optimism among investors.

Cornerstone's Revenue Expected to Exceed £8 Million

The latest trading update came after an announcement at the end of October, when the company reported that its full revenue for FY23 is expected to be at least £8 million, marking an increase of 66% year-over-year.

Now, the company hints that the final results will be higher than previously anticipated as it continues to experience "strong trading momentum," reflecting changes made in its operations over the past year.

"Very strong trading has continued to date and, as a result, the Group now anticipates reporting revenue and adjusted EBITDA for the year to 31 December 2023 materially ahead of current market expectations," the company commented.

These developments led Cornerstone's shares to rise 34.8% to 16.3 pence on Monday, testing over-monthly highs.
