Trading Update

Biome Technologies plc, a leading bioplastics and radio frequency technology business, today provides an unaudited Trading Update for the quarter ended 30 June 2022. The Company's unaudited interim results are expected to be announced on 22 September 2022.

Group revenues for the quarter ended 30 June 2022 were slightly lower than management expectations at GBP1.4m (Q2 2021: GBP1.3m) as delays of materials from suppliers constrained both Divisions. It is expected that the revenues delayed from Q2 will be recovered during Q3 2022.

Bioplastics Division

The Division's revenues for Q2 were GBP1.0m (Q2 2021: GBP1.1m). Management continues to anticipate substantial revenue growth from this Division during H2 2022. This growth is underpinned by supply chain preparation and stocking by several of the Division's customers which are planning product launches in H1 2023 and based on our new "home compostable" bio-based and biodegradable materials that are subject to the protection of a pending patent. Enquiries in the bioplastics space remain buoyant, although our customers continue to face supply chain challenges as they deploy new products.

Stanelco RF Technologies Division

Revenues in the RF Technologies Division in Q2 were GBP0.2m (Q2 2021: GBP0.2m). The Division's strong orderbook had been expected to convert to higher revenue levels in Q2. However, component shortages, particularly of electronic parts, have impeded the build out of the significant RF contracts that were announced in late 2021 and early 2022. Good progress has already been made in early Q3 and we expect for the Division's delayed revenues to be fully recovered in H2.

Cash and liquidity

The Group had a cash balance as at 30 June 2022 of GBP0.7m (30 June 2021: GBP1.4m) and no bank debt.

We are pleased to announce that the Group has entered into a receivables financing agreement with Accelerated Payments Limited. This highly flexible facility has been put in place to provide working capital funding, as and when required, as we look to grow the business over the coming months and years.

Group Outlook

The Board's view of the Group's performance remains in line with current market expectations.
