Investment summary

Revenues decreased from €1.7m in H118 and €1.8m in H218 to €0.7m in H119. Part of the decrease was the result of a decision to terminate a relationship with a distributor in China where the distribution agreement potentially conflicted with future contracts with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) based in China. In addition, some orders that management had expected to receive in H119 are not now expected to arrive until Q419. EBIT losses widened from €0.2m in H118 and €0.4m in H218 to €1.1m. Free cash outflow doubled to €1.7m reflecting higher operating losses, inventory build-up associated with order delays and timing of payments. Net cash (excluding the growth loan) reduced from €1.7m at end December 2018 to €0.3m at end June 2019.

Industry outlook

Noting the lack of visibility on when customer projects with Vestas and turbine integration projects with OEMs will result in volume deliveries, we have placed our estimates under review.
