Trading Update

 

13 January 2021

 

Renold, a leading international supplier of industrial chains and related power transmission products, today issues a trading update covering the three months ended 31 December 2020 (the "Period").

 

Renold has continued to deliver a robust trading performance despite the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on its markets.

 

Since the announcement of its results for the half year ended 30 September 2020, on 11 November 2020, the recovery in both revenues and order intake has continued. Consequently, and subject to no material disruption in the final quarter of the year, the Board now expects adjusted operating profit for the second half of FY21 to be broadly similar to that of the first half.

 

Net Debt continued to fall during the Period and at the end of December was £23.0m, a reduction of £13.6m (37%) from the start of the financial year.

 

Whilst considerable market uncertainty remains, Renold benefits from significant geographic, customer and sector diversification. The Group's ongoing focus on cost control, operational efficiency, productivity, and cash management is helping to offset continuing volatility in the Company's markets.

 

Certain information contained in this announcement would have constituted inside information (as defined by Article 7 of Regulation (EU) No 596/2014) ("MAR") prior to its release as part of this announcement and is disclosed in accordance with the Company's obligations under Article 17 of those Regulations.
