Pre-Close Trading Update


Winsford, UK, 14 December 2017: Advanced Medical Solutions Group plc (AIM: AMS), the surgical and advanced wound care specialist company, today announces an update on trading for the year ending 31 December 2017.


The Group continues to make good progress and the Board expects revenue and profitability to be in line with current market expectations that include the positive impact from the recent Organogenesis licensing deal.


Chris Meredith, Chief Executive Officer of AMS, said: “The Group continues to deliver strong organic growth supported by our Research and Development activities that provide both product innovation and intellectual property. AMS is well positioned to continue on its growth trajectory.”


The Group expects to publish its Preliminary Results for the year to 31 December 2017 in March 2018.


Adoption of IFRS 15

IFRS 15 (Revenue from Contracts with Customers) becomes mandatory for AMS from 1 January 2018. The main effect for AMS will be to recognise the fees received from royalty payments and from regulatory agreements as Revenue rather than as Other Income. It will have no impact on profit or cash flow. The Group however has chosen to adopt IFRS 15 early and will be reporting its results for 2017 in line with its requirements.
