YVERDON-LES-BAINS, Switzerland, 29th September 2022 – Leclanché SA (SIX: LECN), one of the world’s leading energy storage companies, announces a delay in the publication of its 2022 semi-annual results.
Publication of 2022 Semi Annual Accounts by 30th November 2022
The Company has requested an extension of the deadline for releasing its 2022 semi-annual report due to various internal changes within the Company’s finance team in the last six months, coupled with the implementation of the carve-out of its eTransport business into a wholly-owned Swiss entity, Leclanché E-Mobility SA and an upgrade of the Company’s ERP.
Further to its decision on the 28th of September 2022, SIX Exchange Regulation AG approved a deadline extension for Leclanché 2022 semi-annual report to the 30th of November 2022. SIX Exchange Regulation AG has requested Leclanché to include the below excerpt in this press release:
