Next Fifteen Communications Plc

AGM trading update

At the AGM to be held today at 12.00 pm, Richard Eyre, Chairman of Next Fifteen Communications Group plc (the "Group"), will make the following comments with regard to trading and the business since the start of the current financial year, 1 August 2011:

“I am pleased to report that, with almost six months of trading completed, the Group has made a solid start to the current financial year. We expect the interim results for the six months to 31 January 2012 to show growth in both revenue and profits, boosted in particular by a strong performance from our digital businesses.

During this trading period the Group also completed the acquisition of Trademark, a technology focused PR and consulting business with strong digital credentials. Trademark, based in Munich, has now begun trading as Bite and will help us build a stronger presence in this important market.

The financial year 2012 is set to be another year of growth for our Group. This is despite economic uncertainty, which continues to impact clients' businesses and overall marketing spend. Our ability to deliver growth is a testament to our resilient business portfolio and our continued shift away from traditional PR services towards digital marketing and communications activities, the demand for which remains strong. This combined with some modest strengthening of the dollar leaves us well placed to meet management expectations.

We anticipate releasing our interim results on 24 April 2012”.
