John Cronin, CyanConnode Executive Chairman, commented: "Whilst we have made good progress during H1 2019, securing a number of follow-on orders in India and Europe, the Indian General Election had an impact upon the number of new tenders awarded during the period owing to a prohibition on Government departments awarding contracts during the elections. After the result was announced in May 2019, business activity started to resume in India and we expect to report significantly higher revenues for H2 2019, than that reported for H1 2019. The demand from India remains strong and to the extent that orders have been delayed, other orders from the rest of the world, which had not been anticipated at the beginning of the year, will be recognised in the period. We are currently working on a large number of tenders which we believe will result in substantial new contract wins for the Company by end of October and accordingly we anticipate that the outcome for the year will be in line with Market Expectations.”
