Comments from the CEO

Welcome to AAC Clyde Space's 3rd Quarter interim report for 2019. This has been an exciting quarter with important changes to the company branding and image, and transformational contract awards that have cemented our position as a leader in the market for small satellites and space industry components.

The contract with Eutelsat announced in September, marks the second time this year that a major satellite operator placed their trust in AAC Clyde Space to deliver an operational capability, with the potential for significant further orders in the future. Our strategy to offer small spacecraft, developed for volume production, in combination with a comprehensive service package, is gaining a solid foothold in the market.

The contract helped to grow our order backlog to a healthy 180 million SEK at the end of September, almost three times larger than at the beginning of 2019. More importantly, it shows the growing importance of CubeSats and small satellites for delivering operational services that used to be done by bigger, more complex systems. We continue to see a robust demand for our products, both in subsystems and missions, with a healthy and exciting pipeline of new opportunities. In October we booked our 50th Sirius product sale, an important milestone for a product that has been on the market for less than two years.

Our revenues remained lower in the quarter than what I would like, but they are growing and recorded an increase of approximately 40% over the third quarter last year. Our EBITDA remained negative, as we continue to invest in our future. We have strengthened our delivery capacity in recent months with new people joining the team, bringing in skills and resources.

The new commercial branding "AAC Clyde Space" launched in August, also became the official name of the company. The name reflects the strong heritage of our Swedish and Scottish arms, further helping the integration of both teams and product lines. At the same time, we introduced new product families, rationalising the existing ones and providing a more focused marketing.

After a period of consolidation of our operations we have now moved to a phase centred on improving the performance of the company, preparing it for the opportunities that lay ahead. We continue to look for opportunities to grow, both organically and through acquisitions. The increased provision of services, the growing popularity of our platforms and the success of our subsystems will form the basis of our organic growth. Over the coming year we will update our subsystem designs, upgrade our offerings and introduce new products. In the current quarter, we focus on delivering on our contracts and on planning the coming year. It will be a busy and exciting quarter for our great team, both in Uppsala and Glasgow.
