The firm, which develops both natural plastics and radio frequency (RF) systems, said in a trading update for the period that group revenues were £7mln, up 56% on the same period a year ago, while revenues in the third quarter had risen to £2.6mln from £1.5mln last year.
Biome added that year-to-date revenues for 2018 had already exceeded those of the full 2017 year of £6.2mln, with 78% of these coming from the RF division, and had also made an underlying (EBITDA) profit in the third quarter.
The group reported a significant uptick in revenues in its RF division as “exceptional” demand for fibre optic furnaces caused revenues to nearly double to £2mln from £1.1mln in the third quarter.
Looking ahead, the firm said it expected the momentum experienced in the third quarter to continue into the remainder of the year.
