("Transense" or the "Company")


AGM Statement


Transense Technologies plc, the provider of sensor systems for the industrial, mining and transportation markets, announces that at the Company's Annual General Meeting ("AGM") being held at 2.00 p.m. today at finnCap's offices, 60 New Broad Street, London, EC2M 1JJ, the Chairman, David Ford, will make the following statement: 

"I am pleased to report that the growth of recurring monthly iTrack subscription revenues has continued to increase in the current financial year, growing organically 40% when comparing H1 numbers this year with H1 last year. Following the signing of the Joint Collaboration Agreement with Bridgestone in August 2019 we have subsequently signed affiliate agreements in many key territories. These agreements have produced sales opportunities at an unprecedented level with several new trials underway, and many more scheduled to commence in the second half of the financial year.

In the previous year the Company experienced a reduced level of Probe sales, principally as a result of a cut back in marketing spend. The level of marketing commitment has now been increased and whilst the sales in H1 will not reflect a recovery the level of enquiries has risen substantially which is encouraging for H2 and the following year.

The level of income from SAWSense remains relatively flat although it has been enhanced by the second year of grant income from the Strain & Temperature related project, with the University of Southampton, and we continue discussions with GE with a view to widening their adoption of our SAW technology within the GE group.

The overall level of revenue for the first half is in line with the previous year however the overheads have increased significantly reflecting an increase in sales and support activity on iTrack, which are expected to drive trading in the second half of the year. As a result of the planned increase in overheads, the H1 loss before tax will be higher than in the corresponding period in the prior year.

The iTrack system is now receiving far more extensive market exposure and the current customer reaction reinforces our belief and confidence that iTrack is the most technologically advanced TMS in the market.

Accordingly, the Board look forward to 2020 with increasing optimism."

About iTrack


The iTrack Mining system provides real-time data on the condition of the tyres, combined with live tracking of vehicle location and status. Our 24/7 Control Room monitors the pressures and temperatures live, and this information can, for example, be used to ensure tyres do not exceed critical heat thresholds, to detect incorrect load distributions, predict suspension failures and eliminate manual tyre pressure checks. The Directors believe that these benefits maximise the hours a truck is working (Truck Uptime) and improve productivity by minimising maintenance requirements and using data to identify underperforming trucks. www.trans-logik.com/itrack-2/
