“Enteq has continued investment in the expansion of the rental fleet, new technology partnerships and in internal new product development,” the board said in its statement.
“This will result in a cash balance expected to be around $11.0m at the year end, up from $15.3m.
“The balance sheet net assets at 31 March are expected to be approximately $23.3m, up from $23.6m.”
Enteq said its view was that the market remained stable, adding that it expected to report its full-year results for the year ended 31 March on 12 June.
