BiomeTechnologies Publishes Preliminary Results for 2016

The results for 2016 show some improvement in profitability over the previous year, albeit they do not demonstrate the step-change in underlying performance we had expected earlier in the year. Whilst revenues and EBITDA from the Stanelco RF Technologies division remained robust throughout the year, the performance of Biome Bioplastics was constrained by both softness in its already commercialised technologies and delays to new product launches with its customers. Despite this, significant progress was made in the second half of 2016 towards the new product launches from both a technical and commercial perspective, resulting in initial sales from an important new revenue stream. As a result, we are moving into 2017 with a positive outlook about the Group as our new products approach the commercialisation phase. In addition, the Group’s cash resources have been further strengthened by the settlement of legacy licensing arrangements with a third party at the end of 2016 and the resultant cash receipts of £0.45m in early 2017.
