Industry outlook

This fifth work package gives a monthly revenue rate similar to that delivered in H122, so we raised our FY22 revenue estimate by £0.2m to £2.4m. Importantly, the fifth work package extends for one year starting May 2022, giving Nanoco a more stable environment for business planning. The fifth work package, together with the recent fundraising, extends Nanoco’s cash runway well into CY25, by which point management expects the organic business to be profitable and cash generative. It means Nanoco has sufficient cash even if the litigation with Samsung for patent infringement is prolonged by appeals.
