The company has managed to achieve its best quarter for sales and production – it has produced 90 units in Q2 bringing the total number of units produced to 220 units since start of production in 2016. Production has recommenced last week following the summer recess with the aim of achieving a production run rate of 25 units a week by the end of September. The 200hp unit remains on course to be re-introduced at the end of September.
The higher losses when compared to the previous period is due to reduced unit sales price (all units sold are 150hp in 2018 compared to 200hp in 2017) and higher cost associated to improvements to the product and warranty claims. The company is working to narrow the losses through price increases of its product and cost down of its parts purchases as volume increases.
The Board has decided to publish the preliminary results to provide all investors the same information whilst the company is in discussion with several Investors for the purposes of raising additional funding needed to meet its working capital requirements for production ramp up this year.
The company will publish its full Q2 2018 interim report on 31stAugust 2018.
- I believe we are entering an exciting stage of growth of the company and I am looking forward to ramping up our production to meet our stated target of 25 units a week as well as the re-introduction of the 200hp engine, says Andreas Blomdahl.
