Active Energy Group Plc ('Active Energy' or 'the Group')

-- Full year revenue anticipated to reflect a significant year-on-year increase as growth trajectory continues
-- Strengthened balance sheet post period end - placing raised GBP2.05 million (before expenses) to fund expansion of core AEG WoodFibre operations
-- Highly active development plan across all divisions with strong news flow anticipated
Active Energy CEO, Richard Spinks said, "We have over the past three years succeeded in establishing a multi-divisional business with huge potential. We have invested heavily in our WoodFibre business which is now yielding positive results, allowing us to further develop our other business opportunities at TimberLands and CoalSwitch, highlighted by the significant improvement in our financial performance, and continuing investment into these new business areas.
"With additional capital raised in August, we are executing our investment plan which will see a further increase in capacity, output and most importantly revenue for the full year 2016. This remains primarily from the WoodFibre division in Ukraine and will be augmented when AEG CoalSwitch and TimberLands begin to operate.
"Most importantly, we have now established teams of people, with proven track records to expand the woodchip operations, progress our Canadian and European timber operations and commercialise our proven coal replacement product, which we believe could transform the carbon based energy market.
"With a number of significant milestones attained and next steps identified, notably in the near-term, I believe these are truly exciting times for the Company as we look to rapidly accelerate our growth and build shareholder value, across our synergistic operating divisions."
This has been a strong period for the Group in performance terms, as we continue to build an international timber processing, forestry management and renewable energy business. The implementation of a new defined strategic plan aimed at enhancing revenue generation at our wood fibre production division and developing our forestry management and coal replacement businesses is proving successful, and with the strengthening of our balance sheet following the recent GBP2.05m (US$2.73M) placing, we are extremely excited about both the short and long term potential of the business.
More importantly, over the next six months, we expect to make progress across the Group through optimisation, defined investment, establishing new strategic relationships in several new jurisdictions and the opening up of additional commercial opportunities that we believe will all contribute to building substantial shareholder value.
The primary focus during the period was to increase revenues and volumes, whilst maintaining and strengthening gross margin on tonnes shipped at AEG WoodFibre, our established wood fibre production business at Yuzhny Port, near Odessa in Ukraine. I am delighted with the performance of the operation which is centred on a fully-automated hardwood production line, which is capable of processing approximately 3,000 tonnes of raw material per day, seven days a week, and supplies the key raw materials for medium-density fibreboard ('MDF') manufacturing in Turkey. Over the last three years, we have grown this division to become the largest exporter of such processed timber products from Ukraine and during the period we were able to improve the performance across the business which has been reflected in these interim results.
We have improved our supply chain and now receive product from more than 120 sustainable forests operating with the State Agency, Forestry Resources Ukraine, with which we continue to work seamlessly, allowing us to operate efficiently and giving us the confidence to invest further into the softwood market for this business. In January 2016, we signed further contracts with Turkish MDF manufacturers, meaning we now supply the country's largest MDF producers making us an influential player in the market. Additionally there has been significant investment made by the owners of the Yuzhny Port facility to increase their operating capacity which has had an immediate benefit for us in terms of our ability to receive larger volumes of raw material by rail, manage it internally at the port and improve our logistics and loading. All of these factors have further improved our long term outlook and given us the confidence to invest and further develop the Wood Fibre division at the Port of Yuzhny.
We have seen an increase in the global demand for all major wood products, which is showing its largest growth since the global economic downturn during 2008-2009. The production of wood-based panels has seen the fastest growth in the product category due to rapid growth in the Asia-Pacific region where China accounts for 49% of demand(1) . In Europe, Turkey is the biggest producer of medium-density fibreboard ('MDF') and Turkish revenues from wood-based panel manufacture are expected to total approximately US$4.65 billion in 2016 compared to US$2.641 billion in 2012(2) .
With an improving market dynamic and the completion of the equity capital raise, we can now execute our longer term investment plans to double production output to satisfy increasing Turkish demand and complete the installation of a US$1.1 million, 1,000 tonne per day softwood production line, which the Company has now procured. Work has now begun on the installation, and this is scheduled to be operational in Q4 2016. The new softwood line will enable manufacture of softwood wood fibre from pine logs and allow us to increase capacity by circa 33% in the short term to approximately 4,000 tonnes per day. Indeed this will make us the only operator in the region able to supply both hardwood and softwood, the key raw materials for MDF manufacturing, from a single facility. These exciting upgrades to the production facility are targeted to increase revenues for the full year. The resulting additional cash flow will provide significant investment and working capital funds to expand into new markets, particularly in Canada, the US, the Middle East and China, as well as develop our other divisions. It is the goal of the Board to have three operating and profitable divisions before the end of 2017.|
