Trading Update

This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of Regulation 596/2014.

Spectra Systems Corporation, a leader in machine-readable high speed banknote authentication and brand protection technologies, today announces that it has been informed by its covert authentication technology licensee, that royalties based on finished printed notes will reach a record level in 2017. As a result, Spectra expects that its profits for the year ending 31 December 2017 will significantly exceed market expectations.


Dr. Nabil Lawandy, Chief Executive Officer, stated: "We are delighted to have received news from our licensee for covert materials supplied to 18 central banks that the royalty component of the agreement will as a result reach a record annual high in 2017. Typically the final royalty, determined by the number of printed notes containing our materials, is not available until year end. This year, we have visibility that it is already significantly above expectations for the full year. Based on our licensee's projections for material purchases, we expect the royalties to be somewhat higher than average next year although not necessarily at these record levels."
