AGM Trading Update

 

Porvair plc ("Porvair" or "the Group"), the specialist filtration and environmental technology group, will make the following trading update today at its Annual General Meeting:

 

Porvair has made a good start to 2018 achieving revenue growth of 9% in the four months ended 31 March 2018.  Profits for the period are in line with management's expectations. Order books are healthy.

 

On 7 December 2017, the Laboratory division acquired Rohasys B.V.  This small acquisition brings robotic sample handling expertise to the division, which enhances the Group's growing bioscience sample preparation capabilities.  It is performing as expected and creating interest amongst the Laboratory division's customers.

 

On 28 February 2018, the Aerospace and Industrial division acquired the goodwill, business and trading assets of Keystone Filter ("Keystone") for cash.  Keystone designs and manufactures a range of filter cartridges and housings for the food and beverage, drinking water, and chemical process markets in the US.  Plans to move the operation to our plant in Virginia are on track.

 

The Group will announce its interim results for the six months ending 31 May 2018 on Monday 25 June 2018.
