AGM STATEMENT

 

 

Byotrol plc (AIM: BYOT), the specialist infection prevention and control company, makes the following statement ahead of the Company's AGM later today.

 

The Directors are pleased to report that trading remains at healthy levels, across all business units and product sales. Demand for IP licensing remains robust, with the team exploring multiple new opportunities both in the UK and internationally.

 

The Group's net cash position remains strong, enabling us to maintain stock levels to fulfil customer demand or where appropriate re-invest for the growth of the business.

 

We expect results for the year to 31 March 2021 to meet current market expectations, notwithstanding the recent news on the development of potential vaccines against Covid-19. This is supported by industry trends clearly in evidence before (and now magnified by) Covid-19, all of which continue to favour Byotrol's long-term positioning, notably:

 

  businesses and consumers taking increasingly proactive responsibility for protecting individuals against infection risk from viruses and bacteria, so increasing global demand; and

 

  competitors with weaker performance chemistries continuing to withdraw from our market in the UK and Europe as new regulations take hold, so reducing the supply of competing products and so multiplying opportunities for Byotrol's future growth.

 

The Directors remain highly confident in Byotrol's longer term outlook.
