ProPhotonix Announces Trading Update

Expected revenue and operating income growth

(Salem, New Hampshire, December 19, 2016) ProPhotonix Limited (OTC: STKR and London Stock Exchange - AIM: PPIX and PPIR), a high technology designer and manufacturer of LED illumination systems and laser diode modules, with operations in Ireland and the United Kingdom, today announces that its results for the year ending 31 December 2016 are expected to be ahead of market expectations with revenue forecast to be approximately $16.0 million and operating income of approximately $1.3 million.

Tim Losik, CEO of ProPhotonix, stated - "Revenue for the year ending 31 December 2016 is expected to increase by approximately 11% over the 2015 comparable figure and operating income is expected to increase by approximately 65% over the 2015 comparable figure. The revenue growth stems from continuing customer development activity and significant revenue from two customers. Operating income growth comes from improved revenue mix, volume and cost containment.

"We have experienced strong revenue from two customers in 2016 contributing approximately 20% of the total revenue. At present, these two customers are expected to continue contributing strong revenue in the first half of 2017, but we anticipate the run rate to decline during the second half of 2017 as the 2016 run rate is exceptional. There are sufficient new opportunities in our business pipeline which give us reasonable confidence to offset any potential decline from these accounts and to continue to grow our business in 2017." 

The Directors expect that the Company's unaudited preliminary results will be released by the end of March 2017 and the final audited results will be published by the end of April 2017.
