Business Post Group plc today issues the following pre-close period trading update for the half-year ended 30 September 2008.


Performance has continued in line with the guidance provided at the Annual General Meeting on 9th July, and in line with the Board's expectations.  


The Group has maintained revenue growth, both during the second quarter and for the half-year in total. Group revenues for the half-year increased by 16.3% on the equivalent period last year. 


Parcel revenues showed satisfactory improvement on last year.  


Our Mail business, UK Mail, achieved good growth, driven by new business wins and further mail volumes from existing customers.


Revenues in Specialist Services for the period were up significantly on last year, with new contracts driving a strong improvement in our Courier business.
