Trading and Pipeline Update

 

ITM Power (AIM: ITM), the energy storage and clean fuel company, announces a trading and pipeline update, ahead of reporting results for the financial year ended 30 April 2018, which are expected to be announced in late July 2018.

 

Trading

During the year ended 30 April 2018, the Company has focused on delivering its contracted pipeline of orders with the result that total income for the year is expected to be approximately £14.0m. The cash loss for the year is expected to be approximately £5.0m, which reflects the higher than expected costs due to the following three largely one-off factors: the amount of first-of-a-kind plant that has been delivered in the year; fees related to the recruitment of additional project delivery personnel; and  higher factory testing costs for larger scale equipment (a factor that will be mitigated with the upcoming factory move, expected in the first half of 2019, and associated power upgrade at the new site). The Company retains a strong balance sheet with a year-end cash position of approximately £22.0m and a positive working capital position of approximately £8.0m.

 

New orders and deal pipeline

New orders received in the last 12 months have totaled £21.9m. The Company has an overall deal pipeline today of £39.0m, of which £33.5m is under contract and £5.5m is in the final stages of negotiation, representing an increase of approximately 42% since June 2017 after recognising £10.4m as income in the period.

 

Tender opportunity pipeline

The tender opportunity pipeline has grown strongly since the previously reported level of over £200m in January 2018.  It now stands well in excess of £250m with a breakdown evenly spread across the three sectors of fuel, power to gas and renewable chemistry.
