Trading Update

16 October 2020

Renold, a leading international supplier of industrial chains and related power transmission products, today issues a period end trading update covering the six months ended 30 September 2020 (the 'period') ahead of announcing interim results on 11 November 2020.

Renold delivered a resilient performance in the first half despite its markets being significantly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. The business remained profitable throughout the period and achieved a significant reduction in net debt of GBP10.2m to GBP26.4m (FY 2019/20: GBP36.6m), despite sales revenue down 17% on the prior year, at GBP82m.

The Group continued to benefit from a combination of improvement in the strategic cost base and the productivity gains made in recent years, together with tactical short term cost saving measures. These enabled the Group to achieve a positive operating margin for the period.

Reflecting the impact of global shutdowns and lower levels of demand across a number of the Group's markets, order intake in the period was down 21% year on year to GBP76m. However, trends through the period end suggest that order intake should continue to slowly improve, albeit at levels below the prior year in the near term.

Whilst considerable uncertainty remains, Renold benefits from significant geographic, customer and sector diversification. The Group's ongoing focus on cost control, operational efficiency, productivity, and cash management is helping to offset the subdued demand and should enable the Group to make continued strategic progress in the second half.
