"Increased air travel, a recurring environmental awareness and a high fuel price now make the combination of Aventus and ClearPath very interesting. AVTECH is currently in a good position for post-pandemic growth. We have a low cost profile and are already profitable with a positive cash flow. In addition, we have an attractive service offering that increases the efficiency of our customers. Proof of this is the airline Volotea who recently during a Flight Ops trade show in London presented their positive experiences with our ClearPath service, where ClearPath delivered a greater actual savings than they expected. We are now in dialogue with several major airlines and a handful have already decided on tests starting now during and after the summer. Every new contract is always preceded by a successful test and although our services are easy to get started with, it often takes some time to fit this activity into the airlines' planning. We expect additional airlines to decide on tests this fall and that many of these will result in continued contracts," said David Rytter, CEO.
"We can already conclude that net income for the first half of 2022 is our best so far and the trend seems to be pointing in a continued positive direction now that several airlines have already signed up for tests of our services after the summer. A continued positive earnings trend opens up opportunities for dividends for our shareholders.", said Bo Redeborn, Chairman of the Board.
The full interim report for the second quarter will be published as planned on August 26, 2022.
