That upward movement of the BPP share price may be due to the appointment of new CFO Gary Credaro on 3 January 2022; the reporting of record revenue of A$13.7m for the half ending 31 December 2021; and positive operational cash flow of A$1.1M for the quarter ending 31 March 2022.

“The directors are confident in our ability to continue to grow and increase the
utilisation of our assets across rental and industrial services. Enhancing operational
efficiencies and profitability will continue to show improvement in cash flow and earnings as
we close out FY22. We continue to see increasing demand for quality services and
equipment from blue chip customers across the resources sector in particular, which gives us
