AGM Trading Update

Renold, a leading international supplier of industrial chains and related power transmission products, is pleased to provide a trading update covering the five months ended 31 August 2022 (the "Period") ahead of the Company's Annual General Meeting ("AGM") being held at 11 am today.

The Board is pleased to report that the strong momentum experienced in the second half of the last financial year has continued into the new financial year . Following the acquisition of Industrias YUK S.A. ("YUK"), announced on 4 August 2022, full year expectations were increased to reflect the immediate earnings enhancement expected.

Sales revenue for the Period, at GBP93.0m, represents an increase of 18.7% on the prior year equivalent period or an increase of 11.7% at constant exchange rates. Post-acquisition, YUK contributed GBP0.8m to sales during the Period.

Order intake for the Period was GBP97.9m. Excluding the impact of the GBP11.0m long term military contract announced in July 2021, this represents an increase of 15.3% over the prior year equivalent

period or 7.6% at constant exchange rates. YUK contributed GBP0.8m to order intake.

Order books as at 31 August 2022 of GBP97.3m again represent a record high for the Group. YUK contributed GBP3.9m to the order book.

As a consequence of the acquisition of YUK for initial cash consideration of EUR20.0m and increased inventory holdings , as part of contingency planning against the potential impact of energy supply disruption in the second half of the financial year, net debt at half year is projected to be approximately 1.5 times EBITDA, in line with previous guidance.

Whilst the Board is mindful that global markets continue to be uncertain, with ongoing labour and energy cost inflation and supply chain disruption, the Group's trading momentum continues to be positive. The Group has record order books and the acquisition of YUK provides opportunities for synergies and further growth. Therefore, the Board expects adjusted operating profit for the year to 31 March 2023 to be in line with recently increased market expectations, following the announcement of the acquisition of YUK on 4 August 2022.
