Compumedics Limited (ASX: CMP) (“Compumedics” or “Company”) wishes to advise that due to some delayed sales orders being received in the US the revenues for the first half of FY20, will be approximately $17.7m compared to $18.7m in H1 FY19.


The Company did post growth in revenues in H1 FY20, compared to H1 FY19, in its Asia and Middle Eastern based businesses and growth in its DWL business, based out of Germany.


The Company considers the sales orders delayed in the US to be a timing issue at this point in time and therefore reaffirms full year guidance, with revenues expected between $42m and $44m and EBITDA between $6.5m and $7.5m.


The Company did make its first ever shipments of neurological monitoring devices to Japan in H1 FY20, to Fukuda Denshi, its new distribution partner in Japan for the neurological market there.


The Company expects to release detailed analysis and final first-half FY20 numbers with the Appendix 4D, on 25 February 2020.


Progress of the first MEG sale to BNI continues, with the 2nd and final phase of the installation of the MEG system in the coming months, as planned.  The Company has also continued to progress the FDA submission for the current MEG device installed at BNI.  The Company also continues to pursue the 2nd and 3rd potential MEG sales from its current list of opportunities.


The Somfit consumer sleep device is to be used for a second season by a Melbourne based rugby club, as part of an elite sports application for the device.  Other opportunities continue to be pursued as part of the Somfit commercial activation plan.
