Trading Update

Itaconix (AIM: ITX) (OTCQB: ITXXF), a leading innovator in sustainable plant-based polymers used to decarbonise everyday consumer products, is pleased to provide an update on current trading and outlook, and increased investor relations activities.

The Company reports that year-to-date revenue in 2023 is ahead of the same period in 2022.  Unaudited revenues for the full year are expected to be at least $7.7m, with FY2023 earnings expected to be in line with current market expectations.

Our cleaning segment continues to drive overall revenue growth.  In Europe, Itaconix® TSI® detergent polymers are gaining traction as a key ingredient in both private-label and eco-friendly non-phosphate dishwashing detergents.  Revenues from existing North American customers continue to grow from expanded success with retailers and consumers.

Gross profit margins have improved, supported by higher volumes from smaller accounts and beauty products.  The Company anticipates that these favorable gross profit margins will continue into FY2024, aided by reductions in raw material and production costs. The Company expects volumes to continue to grow, with more competitive pricing to customers in FY2024. As a result, revenue expectations are revised to $9.5m or more for FY2024 and $12.5m or more for FY2025, with no change to earnings expectations.
