Further to the Company’s interim results announcement released on 14 September 2015 (“interim results”), the Board is pleased to announce that slightly ahead of the original timetable, all the smoke alarm and accessory manufacturing activities of CICAM, the Company’s principal supplier in China, have been successfully transferred to a nearby alternative facility and that the relevant certification approvals for the new facility are in place. Sprue’s products are now being produced at the new facility which was formally opened on 9 December 2015.

The Board is also pleased to announce that SONA, Sprue’s ground breaking new range of mains powered products targeted at the UK Trade sector, will go into full production before the Company’s year end in line with the guidance provided in the interim results.
