Trading Update and Notice of Results

 

Quixant (AIM: QXT), a leading provider of innovative, highly engineered technology products principally to the global gaming industry, is pleased to provide the following update on trading for the year ended 31 December 2017.

 

The Board of Quixant is pleased to announce that it expects to report revenue for the twelve months ending 31 December 2017 of approximately $109m, an increase of 20% over the prior period.  The Board also expects to report adjusted profit before tax in line with market expectations despite a $1.6m write off in relation to a loss resulting from the substitution of a component incorporated into several of our products.  Net cash at 31 December 2017 was approximately $4.2m.

 

The Group's results for the full year to 31 December 2017 are expected to be announced on 22 March 2018.

 

Jon Jayal, COO of Quixant, commented:

 

"This has been another very good year of growth for the business, with a particularly strong performance in our core gaming platforms and gaming monitors. Densitron has also performed well as we continue to rationalise its product range to focus on higher margin business.

 

"I suggested in our interim results the full year was likely to be first half weighted and this has proved to be the case. Despite historically being second half weighted, as the Group continues to grow the customer book and broaden the product range we are moving towards a more balanced weighting split.

 

"During the year we have invested in the business with a number of senior management appointments and a circa 20% increase in the total number of employees. As a result, we are well positioned to continue to grow the Group over the long term."
