Trading and working capital update


For immediate release

7 June 2019




Modern Water plc, the owner of world-leading technologies for water and wastewater treatment and for water quality monitoring, announces a trading and working capital update.


Despite positive indicators as disclosed in the recent Annual Report, cash flows have been slower than anticipated from the Membranes Division and, consequently, additional working capital will be required in the short-term to meet the Group's requirements. The Monitoring Division continues to trade in line with expectations and the Company is awaiting developments on the Gibraltar waste water contract.


The Board is engaged with a number of potential funding parties with a view to providing the working capital needed, which may or may not include a new equity issue. Although no guarantees can be given that these talks will come to fruition, the Board believes these options to be viable and a further update will be made as appropriate.


This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of EU Regulation 596/2014.
