CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT

 

The business overall has been adversely impacted by the COVID-19 situation. As such, the board and senior management team have taken swift and timely action to mitigate the impact caused by the pandemic. The business has made use of the Government furlough scheme and has managed costs tightly in all areas. It is expected that the results of these measures will provide a solid base for recovery and growth in 2021 although cashflow continues to be critical.

 

The Plastics Division is trading at approximately 70% of expected levels which is thanks to the increase in business from the medical and hygiene sectors compensating for the slowdown in other orders. With lockdown restrictions easing, business has started showing signs of recovery. The cost control initiatives previously announced have been implemented.

 

Tex Engineering is having a difficult year and a root and branch review is being made of the cost and pricing structures to provide a more efficient, lean and profitable operation. The orders are improving with June intake recovering to pre COVID-19 levels, with certain capital plant sales secured. The prospect of future investment in major infrastructure projects gives grounds for cautious optimism.

 

Eurotex trading during the first half of the year has been better than budgeted levels with orders being received from a number of sovereign navies. Work continues on the River class vessels and the maintenance periods scheduled during lockdown are now confirmed for the second half of the year.

 

The A.T.C. division continues to progress current contracts to supply major international customers with seven Visual Control Rooms which are in the final stages of completing the structural calculations and design. Upon receipt of site-specific information and client design approval, manufacturing will commence. Contracts are ongoing in support of the Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers. The division is also working on a number of additional tenders to supply specialist glass and Visual Control Rooms.

 

BSP started 2020 with a strong order book and continued to gain good traction with order intake in Q1, which has resulted in us completing the first half of the year slightly ahead of budgeted sales despite the challenges of the pandemic. Cash collection has been strong throughout the period and the second half of the year is expected to be in line with budgeted levels.

G&M TEX has experienced a slowdown in orders, however the orders for generators on six crab fishing vessels are expected to be placed in Q3. The project for Colchester NHS Trust, whilst delayed, is now expected to complete testing in July with installation in August. Generally, the experience has been that orders will still materialise but at a slower rate than pre-pandemic expectations.
 

QK Honeycomb Products has been the one Group company hardest hit by COVID-19. During the 1st quarter of the year trading was at above budgeted levels. However, due to COVID-19, the majority of QK's regular customers suspended production, resulting in a significant drop in demand during the 2nd quarter. The easing of government lockdown restrictions has seen a gradual return of some customers, although normal operations are not anticipated to resume until late August, after the annual summer shutdown period. The main customer base - the 'leisure vehicle manufacturers' - are reporting positive news from their dealers, advising a surge of interest from new and existing customers as people consider the 'staycation' holiday.

 

As a Group, 2020 is no longer a year of planned growth, but a year to review and consolidate the businesses, minimise costs wherever possible and put measures in place to use COVID-19 as a catalyst for change. This will build a far more lean and agile business for when the recovery eventually materialises. In light of the current uncertainties around COVID-19, the global economy and Brexit, the Board has decided it needs additional working capital and has approached the major shareholder for further funding.

 

The Board is not proposing to pay an interim dividend (2019: £Nil).

NOTES TO THE INTERIM CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1.  Basis of preparation

The condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared using accounting policies consistent with International Financial Reporting Standards as adopted by EU and in accordance with International Accounting Standard (IAS) 34 Interim Financial Reporting. The condensed consolidated financial statements have not been audited or reviewed.

 

They do not include all disclosures that would otherwise be required in a complete set of financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the 2019 annual report.

 

The comparative figures for the financial year ended 31st December 2019 are the statutory financial statements for that financial year. Those financial statements have been reported on by the Company's auditors and delivered to the Registrar of Companies. The report of the auditors was (i) a disclaimer of opinion, (ii) did include a reference to any matters to which the auditors drew attention by way of emphasis, and (iii) did contain a statement under section 498 (2) or (3) of the Companies Act 2006.

 

2.  Significant accounting policies

The condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention.

 

The same accounting policies, presentation and methods of computation are followed in these condensed consolidated financial statements as were applied in the preparation of the Group's consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31st December 2019.
