AGM 2015

Dear fellow shareholder,

The past financial year has seen unprecedented financial performance and we continue to make excellent progress around innovation and growth. Throughout 2018, we expanded key projects and strengthened our company’s position as a leading global connectivity provider.

For NetComm, fixed wireless 5G presents a significant opportunity in global markets and the investments planned for FY19 will place us ahead of a technology wave that is expected to change the wireless landscape.

We received the industry’s premier accolade for innovation in recognition of the Distribution Point Unit (DPU) and Network Connection Device (NCD) technology that we supply to nbn for its FTTC network; and recently announced an extension of the agreement to supply the next generation of Gfast DPUs to nbn for high density deployments. Against this backdrop, we are focused on the delivery of similar large-scale solutions in Europe and globally.

I look forward to keeping you updated on our progress over the coming year and hope to meet you at the AGM to be held on 21st November, 2018.

Yours sincerely,

Ken Sheridan
CEO and Managing Director, NetComm Wireless
