Industry outlook

We believe the growth story of paragon is understood by the capital market, following the successful issue of €50m bonds in June 2017 and the spin-off of its subsidiary, Voltabox, in October 2017 to raise gross proceeds of €152m. In order to generate further appreciation of its share price, paragon needs not only to deliver on its €1.2bn lifetime order backlog, but also to create further growth engines.
