Year End Trading Update

LPA Group plc, the high reliability LED lighting, electronic and electro-mechanical system designer and manufacturer, is pleased to provide a trading update for the year ended 30 September 2022.

In the interim results we outlined that H1 was loss making and that H2 would show a strong second half.  We are pleased to report that H2 was indeed as predicted, with good progress being made, resulting in an improved trading performance compared to the second half of the prior year. The Group will make a small trading loss for the year, however, with the exceptional gain achieved through the disposal of unused land, the Group will report an overall profit before tax.

We are continuing to transition the business as we broaden our product offering, our worldwide coverage, and the market sectors we serve. We still have a heavy dependency on projects but the foundations are being laid for more repeat routine product sales. In support of this, several key appointments have been made across the Group, notably in sales and engineering. We are delighted to have appointed two new MDs to lead our electro-mechanical and distribution businesses.

Pressure from our supply chain remains as inflation and other macro-economic factors dominate industry. Increased prices and long lead-times are impacting many of the products we supply, however, the impact on the business of these dynamics is being managed.

Our orderbook remains high at £28m. Managing our working capital remains a key focus and the cash from our land sale supports a stronger balance sheet.

Our strategy and direction is clear and, although we anticipate continued pressure from much of the above, we are making good progress towards re-balancing the business.
