AGM Trading Update
Strong start to the year
TT Electronics (the "Group"), a global provider of engineered electronics for performance critical applications, publishes this trading update for the four months to the end of April 2019, ahead of the AGM taking place later today.
We have had a strong start to the year with Group revenue 27% ahead of last year on a constant currency basis, reflecting both our targeted business development actions and the successful integration of Stadium and Precision. On an organic¹ basis, Group revenue increased 10%, continuing the momentum from the second half of 2018. We have seen strong organic growth in both Power and Connectivity and in Global Manufacturing Solutions. As expected, revenues in Sensors and Specialist Components are unchanged compared to the prior year.
The Group's order book remains ahead of the prior year, driven primarily by Global Manufacturing Solutions, and more than mitigating softer order intake in Sensors and Specialist Components. We have secured a number of new contract wins with both aerospace and defence and medical customers.
On 26 March, we acquired Power Partners Inc, a small US power supply provider, which will enhance our technology capabilities in power products and improve our medical market access. The consideration was $1.75m on a cash free debt free basis, with an additional performance-based amount of up to $1.25m payable over two years.
Commenting Richard Tyson, Chief Executive Officer said:
"We have seen strong growth in the period, benefitting from both our targeted business development actions and the trend for 'electronics everywhere'. We continue to progress our self-help action plans and to realise synergy benefits from Stadium and Precision.
The Group remains well placed to make further progress in 2019 and beyond."
