Information Services Corp (TSE:ISV), the Canada-focused tech group, which provides registry services for public records, has built a strong business and expects to see continued organic growth in 2020. 

Providing guidance for the year, the Saskatchewan-headquartered company said it expects revenue of between C$135 million and C$139 million for the year.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) is expected to come in between C$37 million and C$41.0 million.

The group's business is underpinned by two large divisions - registry operations and services.

"These two segments deliver consistency and growth, respectively, while our Technology Solutions segment focuses to become a meaningful contributor to our consolidated results in the years to come," it said in Wednesday's statement.

"In 2020, we expect to deliver continued organic growth, driven by our Services segment, through the expansion of offerings to existing customers as well as the acquisition of new customers throughout the year."

Possible acquisitions

ISC will also explore possible acquisition targets, as diversification of the business remains a key part of the strategy, which we will continue to pursue.

"We also expect to spend between $2.0 million and $4.0 million on business as usual capital expenditures," it added.

In the technology solutions business, projects will continue to move into the completion phases in 2020 and the firm expects to recognize increased revenue and profitability.

"Many of those will move into maintenance and we will continue to pursue new contracts in both the registry and regulatory sectors," said the firm.

Saskatchewan’s economy is seen remaining flat in the year as regards to the group's registries, but the company's registry operations will continue to be a strong contributor to results, it added.

Shares advanced 4.3% in Toronto to C$16.
