It has been a transformational period for XTEK. XTEK now have a significant U.S. distribution channel after completing the acquisition of HighCom Armour Solutions. They also now have a commercial grade XTclave manufacturing facility which could potentially produce up to US$20m in revenue per machine per annum when at full capacity. Because of this new production capacity and distribution, we think XTEK will be able to generate and fulfill new orders which will lead to an increase in higher margin revenue.
