Surface Transforms plc (LON: SCE), manufacturers of carbon fibre reinforced ceramic materials, has provided the following trading update for the six months to 30 June 2020.
Revenue for the six-month period grew 55% to £902k (six months to June 2019: £581k). This revenue growth was achieved despite the impact of COVID-19 on the Company and our customers. Cash at 30 June was £2,018k (December 2019: £770k) to which can be added the R&D tax credit, in excess of £300k, expected in September 2020.
The Company expects to report its interim results for the six months ended 30 June 2020 in September 2020.
Progress with Potential OEM Customers and New Capital Equipment
The Company updated shareholders on progress with customers and operations in the recent statement issued on 22 June 2020. It is encouraging to report that since that date all key customer personnel have now returned from furlough and with unchanged objectives for the contract opportunities for the Company.
David Bundred, Surface Transforms Chairman commented: “This sales performance is most encouraging against the background of the most difficult economic conditions in recent memory. The combination of this performance and our most recent customer discussions enables the Company to reiterate the key outlook statements made in the 22 June 2020 announcement. The Company remains on track to reach positive adjusted EBITDA in 2021, report a profit before tax in 2022, and still expects to make further new contract announcements during 2020.”
