Abingdon Health PLC
11 January 2024




Abingdon Health plc

("Abingdon Health" or "the Company")


Trading Update


York, U.K. 11 January 2024: Abingdon Health plc (AIM: ABDX), a leading international lateral flow contract research (CRO) and contract development and manufacturing organisation (CDMO), provides its half-year trading update for the six months ended 31 December 2023.


In the six months ended 31 December 2023 revenues more than doubled (+118%) to £2.4m (H1 2022/3 £1.1m). The growth has been driven by the Company's contract service customer base across lateral flow research & development, technical transfer, manufacturing, analytical and regulatory services. Cash at 31 December 2023 was £1.9m (30 June 2023: £3.2m) and the Board remains focused on continued revenue growth and stringent cost control in order to achieve a cash flow positive position.



Looking forward into H2 2023/4 the Company is confident in the prospects, under-pinned by projects underway and near-term pipeline, for the second half of the financial year and beyond, from both its CRO and CDMO contract service business and its Abingdon Simply Test? and broader product business.


Staff changes

The Board confirms the promotion of Laura Towse, who has been with the business since June 2023, to Group Financial Controller effective 1 January 2024. Andrew Feather, interim Finance Director, will leave the business in January 2024. The Board would like to thank Andrew for his support during this interim period and wish him well for the future. Laura will report into Chris Yates, CEO, who is a qualified Chartered Accountant. 


Investor presentation

Chris Yates, CEO, will be presenting this evening, Thursday 11 January 2024, at the Proactive One2One Investor Forum in London. Further information may be found at: Proactive One2One Investor Forum (proactiveinvestors.co.uk) and the investor presentation will be made available in the investor relations section of Abingdon Health's website after the event.


Chris Yates, CEO, commented: "We are pleased to report triple digit revenue growth in the first six months of the financial year. We remain focused on continuing to drive revenue growth and strengthening our position as a leading lateral flow CDMO contract services business. We look forward to continuing to support the product development plans of our existing customers and we are also encouraged by the breadth and depth of the pipeline of contract service opportunities we are pursuing. Progress within our product business, including Abingdon Simply TestTM, is also encouraging, and we look forward to updating shareholders on further progress in both divisions in due course.


"We also remain highly focused on reducing our cash-burn in FY23/24 and beyond. Our priority remains in moving the Company to a positive cash flow position based on continued revenue growth and stringent cost control."
