Sandal (NEX:SAND) 26p £4.2m
The Company has this week launched its Energenie MiHome Wi-Fi adapter plug which enables users to turn on and off any appliance that plugs into a standard wall socket using a smart phone. December 2018 saw a significant increase in Energenie MiHome sales with a late surge in product sold through retail, in common with many other manufacturers. Sales of Energenie MiHome products by Amazon increased by 30.9% in value. Despite the very encouraging recent sales data for Energenie MiHome products, the Company is still seeking further growth capital which will enable the brand to fully exploit its current market position. Without such funds, marketing spend has been constrained and as a result sales for the year to 31 May 2019 are now expected to be below market expectations .
