Headquartered in Sweden, AAC Clyde Space (AAC) is a world leader in nanosatellite end-to-end solutions, subsystems, platforms, services and components, including supply to third parties. It has production and development operations in Sweden, Scotland, the Netherlands and the United States and a start-up in Africa.

AAC has a strong space heritage in small and nano satellites. Over the next five years, around 2,100 nanosats should be launched as technology development extends the applications for low Earth orbit constellations, especially for communications.

Financials

Ongoing supply chain issues continued to affect AAC in FY23, with supplier delays compromising anticipated delivery of subsystems and delaying projects and subsequent key revenue deferred. Despite this, FY23 marked a year of transition for AAC; 5 new SDaaS satellites were launched (one declared lost), and Q423 order inflow was worth more than SEK200m, leaving a year-end record backlog of SEK630m. This should bolster the significant acceleration of revenues towards the SEK430–500m targeted by management for FY24, of which SEK280m is already secured, which should accompany improving profitability and cash flows and move AAC towards a self-sustaining funding status. Longer term, we expect the business mix to shift to a higher SDaaS weighting (net margins of c 30–40% vs 10–15% in hardware), which should support improved margins.
