April Update on COVID-19 Response



27 April 2020 — Filtronic plc (AIM: FTC),

The health, safety, and welfare of our employees and our broader stakeholder group continue to be our first priority. The majority of our office staff have been working from home for a month now and this is working well. Our principal IT systems have long been cloud based and the nature of our work requires us to have robust and very secure IT systems.

Our manufacturing and support operations are fully committed to meeting our customer needs and our staff in these functions are continuing to work normal hours, albeit with various measures taken to enable social distancing. We have made substantial changes to workplace layouts, staff movement patterns, hygiene procedures, protection and proximity measures.

As one would expect in the current circumstances, our supply chain is a key concern. Although we are addressing some areas of concern, we do not foresee any critical shortages at this time. Our customer base remains positive and to date we have not been advised of any anticipated programme curtailments or deferrals.

To this end our Covid-19 Business Continuity Team continues to meet regularly to review government information and guidance updates and to adapt our protection and mitigation compliance measures accordingly.

Reg Gott
Executive Chairman
Filtronic plc
