CAP-XX 2.65p  £14.5m (AIM:CPX)

FY Jun 20 update from the specialist  in the design and manufacture of thin, prismatic supercapacitors and energy management systems.

Revenue for the year ending 30 June 2020 is expected to be around 15% higher than the prior year at approximately A$3.7m (2019: A$3.2m). Revenue in the second half of the financial year has been affected by a delay in supercapacitor shipments, as some customers have delayed delivery dates and due to the impact of COVID-19 on CAP-XX's manufacturing output. Adjusted EBITDA for the year ending 30 June 2020 is expected to be a loss of approximately A$2.0m (2019: a loss of A$1.6m). The increase in the expected EBITDA loss is due to the factors referred to above and legal costs from the Ioxus patent infringement case.

 The current sales order book for the underlying CAP-XX product lines is greater than twice the level at the same point last year. This increase has been driven by the medical, security and telecommunication market segments.
