Still impacted by COVID-19, but outlook maintained
Today, LED iBond International’s (LED iBond) Board of Directors approved the interim financial report for the third quarter of 2020 (Q3). Highlights of the report include:
- With the order announced in Q3 for the delivery to Vanderlande of UV-C LED-based equipment for disinfection of hand baggage trays in airport security lines, LED iBond’s largest order ever, the company’s entry into the UV-C disinfection market is on track.
- The formation of LED iBond’s vertical farming business is also developing according to plan, propelled by the OEM agreement for delivery of shelf-and-lighting panels for Senmatic’s industrial vertical farming projects, announced in early October.
- Increasing sales of the LED iBond Kitchen line of products in Q3 cannot make up for the continued adverse impact of the COVID-19 pandemic currently preventing all international sales activities within the company’s smart building business.
- Product development activities progress as planned, including the previously announced market introduction of the replaceable LED-plug, initially targeting the elevator ceiling market.
- In Q3, LED iBond generated revenues of TDKK 2,264 from goods sold, a decline of 27 % compared to Q3 of 2019 due to the negative market effects of COVID-19.
- The decline in sales caused by the pandemic was partly offset in Q3 by a one-off COVID-19 related government compensation of TDKK 1,664.
- Despite the COVID-19 slowdown, EBITDA came in at TDKK -1,571 for Q3, as compared to TDKK -2,342 for the year-earlier period. The main reason for this improvement is lower staff costs and lower depreciation in Q3 2020.
- As in the previous interim financial report, LED iBond maintains its financial outlook:
- Full year positive cash flow from operations in 2021
- Revenue of DKK 100 million in 2022
- Long-term EBITDA-margin above 30 %
