Alexium International Group Limited's (Alexium) (ASX: AJX) (OTCQX: AXXIY) is pleased to advise progress in converting development and trial run opportunities into active revenue streams.

Alexium has made sales with 18 new customers (past the trial run process) thus far in 2016, across our range of environmentally friendly Fire Retardant (FR) products and representing a wide range of target markets and annualized sales volumes. 

This generation of new clients and broadening of target markets to include the large polymer and resins segments provides upside potential to our baseline revenue forecasts of US$18.5m for CY2016.

Given the increasing rate of customer generation, Alexium will generally provide summary press releases in place of individual announcements going forward.

"As with any growing company, our revenue forecasts involve rate step changes month on month such that the revenues build during the course of the year as we fulfill rising sales orders," stated Dirk Van Hyning, President of Alexium. "While we will continue to see quarter-on-quarter growth, a significant fraction of our revenue will be received in the latter half of calendar year 2016 as sales complete, underpinning our baseline forecasts made in December 2015."

Alexium continues to implement infrastructure to reliably supply product to our existing customer base while our development of new opportunities, particularly in the polymers and resins sector, continues at an increasing pace.

The polymers industry remains an Alexium top new market. Alexium is continually engaging with polymer manufactures, with our chemistry being regularly applied and tested, ready for market inception.

As our revenue, IP and customer opportunities continue to expand, Alexium will provide sales updates during the year.
