Trading Update – Year End Deliveries
22 August 2016
Image Scan, the AIM-listed specialist supplier of X-ray screening systems to the security and industrial inspection markets, is pleased to provide a trading update for the year to 30th September 2016. This trading update follows on from the development of the supply chain and manufacturing plans for the large order for ThreatScan®-LS1 portable X-ray systems which was previously announced on 30th June 2016. At that time the Company made clear that it would only be able to comment on the potential impact of this order on the performance for the current financial year once the relevant supply chain and operational planning was duly completed.
Accordingly, the Company anticipates to have recognized the sale of approximately half this £800k order by the end of the financial year and therefore now expects to materially exceed current market expectations.
Bill Mawer, Chairman and CEO of Image Scan, said: “For a Company the size of Image Scan, large orders can present their own challenges. However excellent progress has been made with the planning for the recent orders and we have the commitments from our supply chain. I am delighted that as a consequence Image Scan will now approach EBIT break even in the current financial year“.
The Company will issue a pre-close trading update in October ahead of its results for the year ended September 2016.
