Major Order for Portable Systems
30 June 2016
Image Scan, the AIM-listed specialist supplier of X-ray screening systems to the security and industrial inspection markets, is delighted to announce that it has received a large order for its ThreatScan®-LS1 portable X-ray system.
The customer is a government security organisation in Asia, and the value of the contract is just over £800k. Delivery is due in December 2016. This order constitutes the single largest portable X-ray order ever received by Image Scan, in both value and number of units, and is a strong affirmation of the competitive positioning of the ThreatScan®-LS1 system. The Company has received the first stage payment.
ThreatScan®-LS1 is part of the expanding range of portable X-ray systems developed by Image Scan following its August 2014 fundraising. The system allows police and military counter terror teams to investigate suspect packages quickly and safely. It is made up of a compact rugged X-ray generator (which is unique to Image Scan), the Company’s ultra-thin detector panel and a rugged laptop running the new ThreatSpect suite of image analysis software. All elements of the system can be connected wirelessly.
The fulfilment of the new order is not expected to impact Image Scan’s working capital requirements. The Company is performing in line with market expectations before receipt of this new order. Given the timing of the receipt of this order the Company will issue a statement regarding any potential impact on performance for the financial year to 30 September 2016 once supply chain and operational planning for the new order is complete.
Bill Mawer, Chairman and CEO of Image Scan, said: “I am delighted to be able to announce this important new order. This marks a significant milestone in the repositioning of our portable X-ray product range and demonstrates the strength of our international sales and marketing efforts. We are confident that other customers will find the many distinctive features of our new systems attractive.”
