*Costs represented as a negative number

First Graphene Limited has a reported operating loss of AUD 6,3m before non-recurring/one off items for the Financial Year ended 30 June 2021.

Excluding these non-recurring /one-off items related to restructuring of the business, valued at AUD 1.2m, the underlying operating result is a loss of AUD 5.0m, which is a 6% improvement (AUD 0.3m) over Financial Year 2020. The primary drivers for this improved result include:

  1. Improved sales in Q4 of FY 2021, setting a sound base for FY 2022
  2. Cost reduction initiatives:
    1. Change in ERP system, reducing cost by 50%
    2. Reduced spend on consultants
    3. Headcount reduction

The One-off costs incurred in FY 2021 are primarily as result of a business restructure, which (amongst others) includes contractual payments to retiring directors (AUD 0.9m), recruitment costs for new leadership and commercial team (AUD 0.1m) and non-cash write- off of redundant intangible assets (AUD 0.25m).

First Graphene's refocused strategy is committed to rapidly growing its sales portfolio, whilst keeping its cost base under strict control and commensurate to its growth.
