BUSINESS POST GROUP PLC
AGM Trading Update
At the AGM today of Business Post Group plc, one of the UK's leading express
delivery companies, the Chairman, Peter Kane, will state:
'Trading for the Group in the new financial year has been very satisfactory.
Volumes and yields in the first quarter were ahead of the equivalent period last
year, service levels remain high, and costs remain tightly controlled. The Board
expects further good progress in the current year.
'UK Mail's Business Class two day, time-definite mail service has made an
exciting start. As we enter our ninth week of trading after UK Mail commenced
operations, almost 3.5 million letters have been carried for our first two
customers, Powergen and a subsidiary of a major mobile telephone provider.
Service levels are high and both customers are pleased with the UK Mail
offering. We are delighted with the interest shown from potential customers and
expect a number of significant business wins in July and August.'
