Trading Update and Notice of Results

Strong demand driving growth across all business units

Quixant (AIM:QXT), a leading provider of innovative, highly engineered technology products principally for the global gaming and broadcast industries, is pleased to provide an update on trading for the six months ended 30 June 2021.

The Group expects to report double-digit revenue growth compared to the same period last year and profits which are comfortably in line with management expectations for the period. Strong demand across both Gaming and Densitron businesses drove healthy order intake over the period. Component shortages and input stock price inflation continue to present headwinds which the Board has been actively managing through an elevated strategic stock holding and customer price increases.

The Group's net cash position at 30 June 2021 was $15.1m (31 December 2020: $17.4m) reflecting the forward purchase of component stock and payment of a dividend.

Notice of Results

The Board expects to announce its results for the six months ended 30 June 2021 on 22 September 2021.

Jon Jayal, CEO of Quixant, commented: "We are delighted by the healthy level of demand experienced in the first half of the year, resulting in revenue growth for both our Densitron and Gaming businesses. This provides us with confidence that the recovery is well underway in the Gaming market and that our strategic positioning of the Densitron business is delivering results.

Whilst we continue to monitor and manage the challenges presented by external market factors, we expect to see the recovery in demand continuing into the second half of the year driving growth in both revenue and profit."
