SciDev CEO, Seán Halpin, addressing performance for Q3 FY23, said, “SciDev continues to grow the footprint of our water technologies and chemical services businesses with major clients across a range of industries both here in Australia and in international markets. Whilst our underlying revenue remains consistent with the first half of FY23, revenue was down slightly on the prior quarter due to the reduction in one-off chemical sales we saw in the year’s first half. However, we anticipate revenue from three major new contracts – Iluka Cataby, New Chum, and Sydney Metro West – to deliver meaningful revenue uplift from the June quarter onwards. Importantly, we delivered another quarter of positive cash flow and EBITDA, highlighting our team’s dedication and focus to deliver improved returns. With an expanding customer base, growing regulatory tailwinds, a deep sales pipeline and a robust balance sheet, SciDev is well positioned for continued growth and delivering sustainable returns for our shareholders”.
