Half-Year Trading Update

and

Contract Wins

 

Eneraqua Technologies plc, a specialist provider of energy and water efficiency solutions, provides an update on trading for the six months ended 31 July 2022 (H1 FYJan23). The Group is also pleased to announce the award of multiple, multi-year contracts with both new and existing social housing and private sector clients to provide heat pump solutions, with a total contract value of up to £36m, to be phased across the next three years.

 

Activity in the first half of the year was strong and the Group was able to invest to enable it to execute successfully on its growth strategy. H1 revenue is expected to be at least £24m, with the weighting of full year activity traditionally falling into H2 due to the nature of client procurement calendars.

 

As highlighted in the Group's AGM Update on 29 July and further evidenced by the contract wins detailed above, the Company has a strong pipeline of opportunities for the current year and beyond with an Order Book1 providing full revenue cover for its FYJan23 revenue target and 79% for FYJan24.  

 

Major contracts won during the period include:

·    The award of multiple contracts which have been granted by new and existing social housing and private sector clients to provide heat pump solutions. These heat pumps will help improve the sustainability of their properties and reduce the energy bills of their residents.

·    First Agritech contract to provide our ClimateSmart agricultural water efficiency solution to the State of Uttarakhand in India.

·    Awarded two English local authority contracts to deliver net water neutrality pilot programmes.

Post half year end the Company completed the acquisition of Mathewson Holdings Ltd, an established provider of underfloor heating solutions for the health and commercial sectors.  The initial consideration was £1.4m with a further consideration of £0.35m payable over two years. The acquisition extends the Group's low-carbon offering into the healthcare and commercial sectors utilising the strong synergies between underfloor heating systems and Eneraqua's existing expertise in ground and air source heat pumps. 

 

The Company will announce its half year results for the six months ended 31 July 2022 on 11 October 2022.

 

Mitesh Dhanak, CEO of Eneraqua Technologies commented: "The first half of the financial year has been strong and we are confident of meeting our financial targets for the year. We have continued to grow revenues and secure a number of new contract wins, with the contract wins announced today underpinning existing market forecasts. It is clear that the underlying drivers of our end markets are accelerating, and we are confident in the growth prospects for both our Energy and Water businesses.

"The progress we have made to date coupled with the strength of our Order Book1 provides us with continued confidence that we will deliver on the Board's growth plans for the current year as well as strengthen our ability to deliver long term value for our shareholders."
