Kromek’s board said that it is “cautiously optimistic” about the current year as business patterns return to normal

Arnab Basu, Kromek’s CEO said: “We entered 2019/20 in a stronger position than ever before, increasing revenues by 43% in the first half. However, the pandemic caused markets to shut down and materially impacted both our global customer base and supply chain resulting in overall revenues for full-year 2019 to be lower than the previous year. However, the mitigation measures and operational progress we have made during the year means we are well-positioned to rebound strongly.”
