Enteq Upstream plc
("Enteq" or the "Company")
AGM Trading Statement
Enteq, the oilfield services technology and equipment supplier, will make the following statement at its Annual General Meeting which takes place at 12.00 noon today at 30 Gresham Street, London EC2V 7QP.
Enteq reports that year to date trading shows progressive growth, with the financial performance in the six months to 30 September 2019 likely to show revenues more than 50% higher than the same period last year, with a doubling of the adjusted EBITDA.
Both half year revenue and adjusted EBITDA are likely to be ahead of management expectations.
Enteq continues to benefit from the ongoing success of their equipment rental program in USA despite some reduction in rig count during recent months.
Enteq has made further gains in international markets, particularly in China, which is expected to account for around 30% of revenue in the first half of the current year. A recent confirmed order for use of Enteq's kit in the South West region of China for shale gas development, valued at approximately $0.5m, should be shipped by the end of September 2019.
On-going technology partnerships are now delivering commercial returns and are contributing to sales opportunities.
The recently announced development project with Shell for a Rotary Steerable System will further enhance Enteq's product range, leading to a significantly increased market potential.
Cash balances have reduced from the 31st March 2019 figure $11.9m to $10.7m as of today, as Enteq continues to invest in engineering projects and the rental equipment fleet.
The Company plans to release its interim results for the six months ending 30 September 2019 on 14 November 2019.
Martin Perry, CEO, commented
"Enteq has delivered sequential growth for each equivalent period over the last 3 years. The investment in building partnerships, bringing engineering projects closer to market and developing a broader international customer base are beginning to show the anticipated returns. Recent advances in China and a new technology agreement with Shell demonstrate the potential of our business."
