AGM Statement

 

At the Annual General meeting of Nexus Infrastructure plc (AIM:NEXS), a leading provider of essential infrastructure services, utilities connections and smart energy infrastructure, convened for 9.00 am today, Geoff French, the Chairman will state:

 

"Whilst the pandemic continues to cause general economic uncertainty, the fundamental market growth drivers for our business remain positive and are underpinned by Government stimulus for housing, renewable energy and electric vehicle charging. 

 

I am pleased to report that trading conditions within TriConnex and eSmart continue to be positive with both businesses carrying significant momentum. TriConnex and eSmart have performed ahead of our base case scenario as set out at the time of the Group's placing in June last year, with significant growth in new business in-line with our growth strategy for these two divisions.

 

The pandemic and resulting market uncertainty has however continued to provide challenges for Tamdown. Despite on-site activity and new business wins picking up since the year-end, trading is more in-line with the downside scenario as set out at the time of last year's placing. We are confident of a recovery in Tamdown's revenues and margins as industry activity returns to more normalised levels.

 

With a strong balance sheet and order book of £279m, Nexus remains on-track to implement its recovery and growth strategy with a return to pre-Covid levels of activity in FY22."
