MyHealthChecked Plc (AIM: MHC), the consumer home-testing healthcare company, provides an update to shareholders ahead of its Annual General Meeting ("AGM") today at The Maltings, East Tyndall Street, Cardiff, CF24 5EA at 10.00 a.m.
Chairman's AGM statement
Earlier this month we were delighted to announce a record year in terms of revenues, with the business not only performing financially, but also in terms of providing outstanding customer service and delivery. We started the new financial year in a much stronger position, and I am pleased to report that we have seen this good momentum continue into the new financial year.
The first half of the year saw us continue to support the deployment of our COVID-19 PCR nasal swab test kit for at-home use for the UK's top two high street pharmacy retailers. At the same time, we prepared for the launch of five new at-home cheek swab DNA wellness tests, all of which were made available to customers earlier this month. These wellness tests cover Intolerances & Sensitivities, Weight Management, Heart Profile, Vitamins & Minerals and Glucose Management. They are priced at £54 and are available on our website: https://myhealthchecked.com
Ahead of this launch, trading in the first six months of the current year has been stronger than expected and is ahead of budget. A more comprehensive trading update for the six months ended 30 June 2022 will be provided in mid-July.
We expect to publish our unaudited half-year results in September and look forward to updating shareholders on initial commercial progress of our new portfolio of wellness tests then.
