Trading Update

The Board of Wheelsure (AQSE: WHLP) the AQSE quoted industrial engineering company, provides the following unaudited trading and working capital update ahead of the publication of its results for the year ended 31 August 2022 due to be announced by 28 February 2023.

During the first half of the year, the Company reporting that trading had showed an improvement on the prior year which had been significantly affected by the pandemic. In the second half of the year, trading is expected to have been in line with the first half despite the operating environment continuing to prove challenging. The Board anticipates, subject to audit, that the year ended 31 August 2022 will demonstrate improved sales of more than 30 per cent. compared to those of the year ended 31 August 2021.

More recently, the Group has developed a number of both short-term and long-term opportunities in its pipeline. The Group has recently received its largest ever order from a blue-chip, multinational company located in Germany and may provide the Company with the opportunity for significant repeat orders in the future.

As previously reported, the Board considers the development of two of its products, being the Tracksure Digital Fastener and the Tracksure Dual Thread Technology, to be exciting developments. The Board is pleased to confirm that its Digital Fasteners began a three month trial with ProRail and Strukton at the start of November 2022, which is expected to conclude early next year, and which may result in the use of its products for a major refurbishment. The Group’s Dual Thread technology has also been incorporated into a large digital bolt project. The Digital Dual Threaded Bolt was installed in a test wind turbine in Scotland in August 2022, allowing the bolts to be monitored remotely. Throughout a period of difficult trading, the Company has maintained repeat orders with UK, Italian, Dutch and German customers over the last year, whilst branching out into new projects such as involvement in the work on the Barcelona Metro (TMB) in Spain.

Notwithstanding the above, the Board continues to carefully monitor its working capital position. The Company has previously been reliant on a working capital facility against which it was able to draw down funding. This facility is now fully drawn and the Group needs further funding in the short term for general working capital, including to advance the opportunities noted above. The Group is in discussions with several parties in respect of providing further working capital, however, at this stage, there can be no certainty that this further funding will become available to the Company.

The Group will provide a further update to the market in due course.

The Directors of the Company are responsible for the release of this announcement.
