“I am pleased to report that Eleco has experienced a strong start to trading in the first quarter which puts the Company well on track to deliver in line with market expectations for the year as a whole. This performance reflects the transformation that has taken place in recent months as well as the increased commitment and enthusiasm of our senior executives and staff to deliver on the new strategy for the Group.  We are confident this will continue to bear fruit through 2021 and beyond. In the earlier part of this month this strategy was communicated to shareholders, investors and analysts and was well received by all.

The market opportunity for Eleco is compelling and our new, focussed growth strategy will allow us to better capitalise on the significant opportunities available to the Group.

The Company strongly urges that its shareholders vote today in favour of all the resolutions proposed by the board at the AGM, to ensure continued strategic growth through its strong leadership team and allow the Company to continue to deliver value to all shareholders.”
