Elektron PLC 28 July 2005 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 28 July 2005 ELEKTRON PLC ("Elektron" or the "Company") Trading statement to be made by the Chairman at the Company's Annual General Meeting to be held today Adrian Girling, Executive Chairman of Elektron, the AIM traded components manufacturer will make the following statement at the Annual General Meeting of the Company to be held later today: "We announced our results for the year ended 31 January 2005 on 27 May 2005 and provided a review of trading for the first quarter as part of that announcement. Since that time, trading has been in line with the Board's expectations. Bulgin has seen weakness in some of its markets being offset by savings derived from overseas manufacturing. Arcolectric did not this year have the benefit of the backlog of orders which had built up prior to its acquisition by the Company. I am pleased to report however that Arcoelectric's average daily order intake has increased in each successive month in the first half of this year. We expect to report a satisfactory outcome for the six months ending 31 July 2005."
