Ocean Outdoor Ltd - London-based digital advertising firm - Expects 2020 revenue of GBP86.0 million compared to GBP139.6 million in 2019. Expects loss before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization of GBP400,000 versus earnings of GBP33.0 million year before. Notes reduced overheads by GBP4.7 million to GBP25.9 million. "2020 brought unprecedented challenges for the Out-of-Home sector as a result of the public lockdowns and social restrictions brought in by governments across all our territories," company says. Withholds guidance for 2021, but notes strong financial position. "The board believes that it is now strategically better placed to capitalise on advertising demands once restrictions are fully lifted and audiences return to Ocean's locations, and outdoor advertising spend begins to recover," company adds.

Calnex Solutions PLC - provider of test and measurement solutions for the telecommunications sector - Says, continued strong performance in the second half, expects revenues for financial 2021, ending March 31, will be ahead of market expectations. Sees strong levels of customer spend, says demand from the first half of the financial year continued into the second half, with no deterioration in operational performance noted from any macro-economic factors. "In addition, as a result of lower travel and event costs due to Covid-19 restrictions, higher margins are expected to be achieved in financial 2021 than would have been anticipated, which will result in the company's profitability also being ahead of market expectations in financial 2021," company says. Expects to start financial 2022 with healthy order book.
