“We recently announced an order for c. 1 million units, taking orders won this financial year to 2.3 million units. This shows significant growth compared to the previous year where we had won orders for a total of 1.3 million units in all years prior to 31 March 2022. There are currently tenders out in India for more than 100 million units. The funds raised by this placing will allow us to maintain momentum and win some of the large opportunities being presented to us at this time. On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank all shareholders who have participated in this fundraising for their continued support.”
