Trading Update

 

 

In its AGM Trading Update of 15 April 2015, Dialight said that Group revenue growth for the first quarter had exceeded expectations but that we had a number of operational inefficiencies.

 

However, since April the Group has also experienced a slowdown in the rate of orders in the Lighting segment in both the US and Europe which is likely to result in a shortfall in full year revenue. In consequence, the Board expects that underlying operating profit for 2015 will be significantly below expectations and that the results for the first half will be less than the prior year.

 

The Board believes that this reduction in orders is linked in part to a slowdown in the oil and gas sector.

 

In the light of this adverse financial performance, and in conjunction with the previously-announced exercise to develop the Group's production infrastructure and processes, Michael Sutsko, the new Group Chief Executive, is leading a strategic review of the business. This review will focus will on the markets in which the Group currently operates, together with an attendant review of its operations, supply chain, and product development. 

 

The Board remains convinced of the longer term prospects for the Group and it expects to update the market with the findings of this review in the autumn.

 

The Group will publish its results for the six month period ending 30 June 2015 on 27 July 2015.
