"2015 marked a major step in EPS' transformation. Just over eight months after its listing, Electro Power Systems has secured a position as one of the main global energy storage players - stated Carlalberto Guglielminotti, Chief Executive Officer of the Group. - "We've worked hard to meet market expectations and accelerate growth. The installations we've already completed in the early months of 2016, through our subsidiary Elvi Energy, together with the increasing diversification in terms of client base underscore the soundness of our strategy. Thanks to the investments made in 2015, the Group fully verticalized the technology value chain and the business model, strengthening its organization, technology leadership and competitiveness, and is now ready to act as a leader in the global energy markets".

FY 2015 EPS Italy revenues[1] and Group gross nominal sales grew by 53% compared to 2014, to 1.2 million euros audited under Italian GAAP.

In Q1 2016 Group's backlog orders and sales - based on the present arrangements with customers of approximately 2.3 million euros - represents almost 2 times the EPS Italy gross nominal sales accounted in FY 2015. And the conversion of the pipeline, built with the business strategy effort in 2015, has already started.

Sales generated in 2015 were mainly from telecom operators and telecom, infrastructure and data centre system integrators. At the Group level, the current 2016 backlog instead has a deeper diversification in terms of customer base and confirms the effectiveness of the business strategy carried out and the effort made in 2015 to focus on the energy sector, i.e. utilities, grid operators and commercial and industrial users
