Trading Update


The Board of Touchstar plc is pleased to issue a further update on Company's trading for the year ended 31 December 2019.


Pleasingly, the Company completed a higher level of shipments to customers by the year end than had been anticipated. As a result, it now expects to report revenue for the year ended 31 December 2019 of £7.1million, slightly ahead of previous guidance and which will represent year on year growth of 8% from continuing activities. In addition, the financial result for 2019 will be better than anticipated at both the pre and post tax levels


Given the Company's solid cash generative character, the improved trading position has translated into strong positive cashflow. The net cash position on the 31 December 2019 was stronger than expected at £849,000 (FY 2018: £296,000). 


Since the company's last update on 18 December 2019, the Group's order inflow has continued to be encouraging. At the year end the order book stood at £1.2 million (FY 2018: £254,000) and it has subsequently increased to approximately £1.7 million by the end of January 2020.


The Company expects to announce its final results for the year ended 31 December 2019 in mid-April 2020.


Commenting Ian Martin, Chairman, said: "The Board is delighted that the Company has had a stronger than anticipated finish to 2019 and to be entering 2020 with an encouraging order book. We expect to provide a further update on the outlook for 2020 as part of the announcement of the final results in April."
