LONDON (SHARECAST) - Data centre firm CSF Group dropped 12 per cent in morning trading on Tuesday after it reported delays to a project in Malaysia would put a break on revenues this year. The firm said expansion plans for its CX6 data centre would mean increased development and maintenance revenue. However, it would also result in delays in this revenue to the next financial year and beyond. The company said it "no longer expects to recognise any development revenue from CX6 in the current financial year as the revised proposal is being reviewed by the customer".
