AB Dynamics plc

("AB Dynamics", the "Company" or the "Group") Pre-Close Trading Update & Notice of Results

"Strong growth and delivery against strategic priorities"

AB Dynamics plc (AIM: ABDP), the designer, manufacturer and supplier of advanced testing systems and measurement products to the global automotive market, is pleased to provide a trading update in advance of the publication of its final results for the twelve months ended 31 August 2019.

The Group continued to perform strongly in the second half and expects to report growth in revenue and adjusted profit before tax1for the financial year ended 31 August 2019 that exceeds market expectations.

The performance benefited from the continuation of the trends reported at the half year in addition to the implementation of our five-element strategy. Market conditions remain favourable, driven by significant structural and regulatory tailwinds.

The Company is also pleased to confirm that the new Chief Financial Officer, Sarah Matthews-DeMers, will commence her role on Monday 4 November 2019.

Dr James Routh, Chief Executive Officer said:

"I am very pleased to report that the full year results for AB Dynamics will be ahead of market expectations and the strategy communicated at our interim results is progressing as planned. Following the placing in May 2019, we have successfully completed the acquisitions of rFpro and Dynamic Research Inc, as well as launched new products and further expanded our international presence in the USA and Japan. We have an unmatched market position with exceptional technology and products, and the outlook remains positive across the Group."
