TRADING UPDATES: Vertu Profit To Beat Forecasts; eEnergy Revenue Jumps

Thu, 04th Feb 2021 11:38

(Alliance News) - The following is a round-up of updates by London-listed companies, issued on Thursday and not separately reported by Alliance News:

----------

Vertu Motors PLC - used car dealer - Expects trading result for the financial year ending February 28, at an adjusted pretax profit level, to exceed current analyst forecasts of around GBP18 million. Says strong marketing activity, maximisation of its omni-channel retailing functionality and cost control have meant that its trading performance in the two months to the end of January continued the positive trend reported for the nine months to November 30.

----------

eEnergy Group PLC - London-based energy efficiency-as-a-service - Says business eLight, which provides Light-as-a-Service to schools and businesses, experienced strong organic growth in the six months to December 31. eEnergy generated revenue of around GBP6.6 million in the six-month period, up more than three-fold on a year ago, and generated net income before exceptional items of GBP100,000, in line with its previously announced break-even guidance. "The board remains confident that, with the current and expected contracted forward order book, together with active cross-sell engagement for customers across the eLight and Beond businesses, group revenue and gross profit remain in-line with its expectations for the full year to 30 June 2021," says eEnergy.

----------

Bushveld Minerals Ltd - South Africa-focused vanadium producer and energy storage provider - Reports Bushveld Vanadium 2020 production of 3,631 metric tonnes of vanadium, up 24% on 2019 but below guidance of between 3,660 tonnes and 3,940 tonnes. 2020 sales of 4,264 tonnes was up 78% on 2019. For 2021, expects production between 4,100 tonnes and 4,350 tonnes, which would be between 12% and 20% higher than 2020. "In summary, we have entered the new financial year on a positive footing with the secured funding, the higher production for the year and a rising vanadium price," says Chief Executive Fortune Mojapelo. Separately, says ore reserves for the Vametco vanadium mine have been depleted by around 2% after 12 months of mining from previous estimate as at December 31, 2019. Mojapelo says: "I am pleased to report no significant change in our ore reserve in the past twelve months, except for the depletion that occurs in the ordinary course of mining the deposit. For a deposit with decades of production ahead of it and potential for expansion, this gives us the confidence to pursue our growth targets knowing we have a quality and consistent resource at Vametco."

----------

Tern PLC - internet of things-focused investor - Says momentum with portfolio companies continues, noting further contract win for Fundamental VR valued at around USD700,000 and Talking Medicines is launching its artificial intelligence and natural language processing powered patient intelligence platform, PatientMetRx. As at December 31, Tern had unaudited cash resources of GBP2.1 million, with approximately GBP380,000 subsequently invested in its portfolio companies, Device Authority and Wyld Networks Ltd, as part of their recent syndicated fundraisings. "The board of Tern believes that the company's cash resources are sufficient for its current needs, including developing the portfolio and supporting the progress of its portfolio companies, taking into account the expectation of the availability of third-party funding to assist the development of the portfolio companies as appropriate," says Chief Executive Al Sisto.

----------

Expects EPRA net asset value per share at December 31 around EUR5.27 to EUR5.33, versus EUR4.92 a year ago. "I am pleased that the company has been able to deliver further increases in property values and net asset value. The fact that this result has been achieved despite the introduction of the Berlin Mietendeckel and the impact of Covid-19 is testament to the resilience of our business model during these unprecedented times," says Chair Robert Hingley.
