MTI Wireless Edge - Strong first quarter
Strong first-quarter results

MTI Wireless Edge (LON:MWE) has reported results for the first quarter (Q1) of 2019, showing continued strong progress. Revenues increased by 16% year-on-year and operating profits 66%. We maintain our full-year (FY) 2019 forecasts, with FY revenue growth of 10% and earnings per share (EPS) growth 27.8%.

All comparisons are on a pro-forma basis to include a full year of MTI Computers revenue in the prior year.

Favourable demand trends

At the time of the merger between MTI Wireless Edge and MTI Computers in August 2018, the company forecast strong demand across each of its business segments. These expectations have been borne out in Q1.

Water Solutions: Demand remains strong globally for smart irrigation systems. During the quarter, the business secured its largest ever order, a breakthrough order for irrigation control systems into the Chinese market.

Antennas: Demand drivers include 5G wireless infrastructure in the civil communications sector and increasing budgets among major military customers. The outlook remains positive.

Distribution & Professional Consulting Services: Revenue for the division grew very strongly in the quarter as previously announced projects matured into revenue generation. A new order for aerostat systems (now included in this segment) will deliver revenues in the coming quarters.
