Strix Group maintaining expectations for the full year

Strix Group Plc (LON:KETL), the global leader in the design, manufacture and supply of kettle safety controls and other complementary water temperature management components has provided an update ahead of its Annual General Meeting at 9 a.m. today.

At the meeting, Mark Bartlett, Chief Executive Officer of Strix, will make the following statement:

“We confirm that based on year to date performance, our current expectations of trading conditions in the balance of the year, the resilience of our historical H2 performance through prior macroeconomic cycles and our experience during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are maintaining expectations for the full year.

Since the announcement of our full year results, the global outlook has weakened and headwinds  persist which imply that we will continue to face a challenging operating environment. However, we are pleased to have successfully implemented further product price increases across our full kettle controls range and water categories (the most recent was with effect from 1st May). This alongside a range of continued strategic efficiency measures, including the adoption of lean and automated processes at the new manufacturing operations, foreign exchange rate and commodity hedging arrangements has continued to minimise the impact of ongoing cost inflation.

We continue to monitor the evolving situation in China and, to date, our manufacturing operations within Zengcheng district in Guangzhou have not been materially affected. We continue to take a proactive approach to minimise potential supply chain disruption by increasing levels of finished stock and holding stock in multiple districts.

Overall, Strix has a robust business model, remains in a strong financial position and through adopting a disciplined and dynamic approach to our strategy has delivered a resilient performance during prior macroeconomic cycles and during the COVID-19 pandemic. We remain confident in our ability to navigate current uncertainties and deliver on the current expectations for the full year and against our medium-term targets.”
