Second Half Profitable Trading Exceeds Expectations

 

Quixant (AIM: QXT), a leading provider of innovative, highly engineered technology products principally for the global gaming and broadcast industries, provides the following update on trading for the current financial year, ending 31 December 2020.

 

The Board is pleased to report that since the release of the Group's interim results on 30 September 2020, trading in its core gaming market has exceeded expectations. As a result, the Group now expects to report full year adjusted profit before tax of at least $1m on revenue of at least $61m.

 

Jon Jayal, CEO of Quixant, commented:

 

"Given the magnitude of the impact of Covid-19 on the global gaming industry, I am delighted that trading has recovered to the extent that we will be able to more than offset the loss in the first half and report a profit for the year.  Our business has been supported by the resiliency of Densitron through the pandemic, enabling us to also maintain a strong net cash position.

 

"While the macro-economic environment remains uncertain, there are encouraging signs our customers are preparing for improving conditions during 2021. With strict financial discipline, a strong balance sheet and close relationships with our customers, I believe we are well-placed to drive long-term, profitable growth."
