AGM Trading Update

 

Continued strong order intake, with full year outlook unchanged

 

TT Electronics plc ("TT", "the Group"), a global provider of engineered electronics for performance critical applications, publishes the following trading update on the Group's performance for the four months to the end of April 2022 (the 'period'), ahead of the AGM taking place later today.

 

Strong Demand Continuing

 

Trading in the period reflects the ongoing healthy growth trends in TT's focus end-markets and the strength of our customer relationships. Group revenue was 6 per cent higher than the previous year on a constant currency basis and 5 per cent higher on an organic1 basis.

 

Order intake continues to run well ahead of revenue with book to bill for the four months running at 151 per cent.

 

Good Operational Execution

 

Overall, the business continues to execute well in the face of COVID disruption and the well-documented supply chain issues. In the period, our Power and Connectivity facility in Dongguan was temporarily closed, but our larger GMS facility in Suzhou, near Shanghai, has remained open.

 

Our Sensors and Specialist Components and GMS divisions are performing well, whilst the results of our Power and Connectivity division are expected to be second half weighted. Our well-established self-help initiatives and our decisive action on pricing continue to effectively offset current cost inflation.

 

The integration of the Ferranti acquisition is progressing to plan and the team have already been successful with new business opportunities.

 

Balance Sheet

 

Given the high levels of demand and supply chain constraints, we have continued to invest in inventory to support the growth of the business. As a result, our net debt and leverage at the end of June are expected to increase from the year-end position before reducing to more normalised levels by the year end.

 

Full year expectations unchanged

 

Whilst macroeconomic conditions remain uncertain, the year has started well, with continued growth in our end markets, and good execution against the well-documented challenges.

 

Accordingly, management's outlook for the year as a whole is unchanged.
