Industry outlook

Looking ahead to FY20, management notes a strong pipeline and recurring orders from the e-transport segment of more than 135MWh/CHF54m and more than 90MWh/CHF45m from the stationary solutions segment. Management expects FY19 revenues to reach CHF55-60m. It will update this guidance in September as the final 2019 revenues depend on the delivery and implementation schedule of the Caribbean which is currently in final negotiations. Our estimates remain under review.
