   ("Sandal" or the "Company") 
   At the Annual General Meeting ("AGM") of Sandal plc, the designer, 
developer and manufacturer of electronic products, being held in London 
at 10:30 a.m. today, the Company's CEO, Alan Tadd, will make the 
following statement: 
   "Trading since the start of the financial year has been in line with the 
Board's expectations and is within the forecasts contained in Daniel 
Stewart's research note published on 18 October 2016. 
   "Since the end of the financial year under review, the Company has 
announced the integration of its Energenie MiHome products with the Nest 
Intelligent Learning Thermostat and the Amazon Echo range of home 
automation products which should enable the Company to maximise sales 
for its MiHome Home Automation product range. 
   "A further exciting recent development is the adoption of the MiHome 
product range by Sainsbury's and Argos. MiHome product will be available 
in 100 Sainsbury's stores before Christmas and will be in the Argos 
catalogue being launched in February 2017. The whole MiHome range will 
be available online at Argos. 
   "We believe this is a significant development for the market as it 
indicates that the Smart Home product category is starting to enter the 
consumer mainstream.  We have always believed that market penetration 
would start to gather momentum in 2017 and it would appear that this is 
indeed the case. Our pricing strategy and strong distribution 
arrangements with Exertis (UK) Ltd. will enable us to reap the benefits 
of this market change. " 
   The directors of the Company accept responsibility for the contents of 
this announcement.
