Trading Update



TT Electronics ("TT" or the "Group"), a global provider of engineered electronics for performance critical applications, today publishes this trading update for the four months to the end of October 2017.


Trading for the Group has been positive, with the growth trends experienced in the first half in Sensors and Specialist Components and Power Electronics continuing, and with Global Manufacturing Solutions returning to growth in the period as expected.  Group revenue is up 6% on an organic1 basis compared to the prior year.


The Group's order book across all three divisions continues to be strongly ahead of the prior year.  Our order book strength is a positive indicator for the balance of the year and into the first quarter of 2018.


During the period we completed the sale of the Transportation Sensing and Control (TS&C) division, receiving a total cash consideration of £123.5 million, moving the Group into a net cash position.


As part of the separation, we have announced the closure of our Global Manufacturing Solutions site in Romania, which was shared with the TS&C division. We will move the lines to Rogerstone, Wales and Suzhou, China rather than incur the costs of establishing a new facility, further simplifying our footprint. The site closure is anticipated in the first half of 2018.


Summary and Outlook


Commenting on the trading update, Richard Tyson, Chief Executive Officer said:


"2017 has been a significant year for TT, with the disposal of the Transportation division completed in October. We will use the proceeds to make further investments to accelerate our growth through capital investment and acquisitions.


As well as executing substantial portfolio change, we are delivering strong growth in the continuing business. We remain on track to deliver further progress in 2017, in line with expectations.  We are excited about the prospects for TT."
