Inspirit Energy Holdings (LON:NSP) 0.05p £0.43m

The developer of micro Combined Heat and Power ("microCHP" or "mCHP") boilers, updated shareholders following a strategic review of operation and product development.

As set out in the Company's half year report, the Company has been working to advance its microCHP boiler towards commercialisation.

In Dec 2018, the UK Government introduced legislation which will close the Feed-in Tariff (FIT) scheme to new applicants from 1 April 2019. 

To this end, the company has been focusing on improvements to the design of the Company's Stirling engine technology and creating a strategic plan for future operations, cost efficiencies and product diversification.

Improvements and efficiencies have provided the Charger with peak electrical output in excess of 6.4kW of electricity during a running cycle of 2,000 hours against the unit's previous output of 3.0kW, whist maintaining 15kW thermal output and a 20% reduction in the size of the appliance to below 800mm.


Van Elle (LON:VANL) 44.5p £35.6m

FY Apr 19 update from the geotechnical engineering company offering a wide range of ground engineering techniques and services to customers in a variety of UK construction end markets.

The business continues to make good progress on its transition plan, announced in Jan 2019. In terms of current year performance, the Group has experienced a level of uncertainty in its markets, particularly in the infrastructure sector, in the latter part of the year. This has meant that, despite encouraging progress in winning work, some contract award and start dates have been delayed by customers. As a result, whilst volumes in the fourth quarter have been the strongest of the year to date, sales for the full year are expected to fall short of levels previously expected by circa 3%. This reduction in forecast sales for the current year is expected to result in the Group delivering full year adjusted PBT slightly below the lower end of the range of market expectations.

Reflecting the improved commercial approach, which is focussed on longer term partnerships, the Group has a record current order book of £35m
