Milestone Year For NETPark Based Kromek
This was a milestone year for Kromek as the Group delivered on all of its objectives, including the key target of growing adjusted EBITDA.
For the full year, revenue increased by 23% to £14.5m (2017/18: £11.8m) and adjusted EBITDA grew fourfold to £2.0m (2017/18: £0.5m). In particular, the Group successfully delivered its largest second half of revenue in its history, which was in excess of £10m. This progress was based on Kromek continuing to execute on previously-signed agreements as well as winning new customers, new contracts and repeat orders across its target markets, with growth driven by increasing adoption of the Group’s next-generation molecular imaging single photon emission computed tomography (“SPECT”) products in medical imaging and the D3S family of products in nuclear detection.
It also reflects the increasing commercialisation of Kromek’s technology, with product sales accounting for 83% of total revenue (2017/18: 81%), representing growth in value of 25%. Kromek was also awarded one of its most significant contracts to date, expected to be worth a minimum of $58.1m over a seven-year period, to provide cadmium zinc telluride (“CZT”) detectors and associated advanced electronics to be used in state-of-the-art medical imaging systems.

The quality of the facilities at NETPark and the attitude of staff is first class. It has a really dynamic, innovative atmosphere.
CPI has developed a specialist offering to support SMEs looking to develop their printable electronics applications and our partnership with Business Durham has been instrumental in attracting several SMEs to locate here in the region.
Access to quality facilities was one of the main drivers for deciding to locate the business at the NETPark. We have been able to use this as a launch pad to link into support from CPI and world-class expertise from Durham University.
We initially came because of the printable electronics centre but access to a highly skilled semi conductor workforce in the North East has been a key factor in us staying and growing here, as well as the value for money office space and the access to funding.
The proximity to the universities and the infrastructure are very important factors. Ultimately having a presence in Europe is very valuable to us and we intend to stay at NETPark for many years to come.
It fits perfectly for us that we’re surrounded by like-minded companies at NETPark. There are a number of highly skilled people in the area who can help us grow our business. The facilities and services offered by NETPark are first class, they make office life simple and engaging.
