Company announcement, Insider information, Helsinki, 3 April 2020 at 09.00 am (EEST)
Nexstim Plc (NXTMH:HEX, NXTMS:STO) ("Nexstim" or "Company") announces that due to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic having a negative impact on the Company’s business environment it’s no longer possible to give an accurate net sales estimate for the full year 2020 before the length of the health crisis is better known.
The cost saving measures announced on 26 March 2020 are expected to decrease the full year 2020 operating loss in comparison to year 2019. The Company estimates that with these cost saving measures in place and loan repayments made according to earlier agreed schedules, the current working capital suffices then until end of Q3 2020.
Updated Future Outlook: Full year 2020 operating loss is expected to decrease in comparison to year 2019.
This updated future outlook replaces the previous financial guidance given on 28 February 2020, in which the Company estimated that based on its business forecast, the Company expected NBT business revenue to grow during year 2020 and a loss for the period was expected for the financial year 2020.
