Interim Management Statement

27-Jan-2012: Interim Management Statement

Fuller, Smith & Turner P.L.C. ('Fuller's' or 'the Company') today reports its
trading performance for the 42 weeks to 21 January 2012.

In the 9 weeks to 21 January 2012, the Company has traded well with like for
like sales in Managed Pubs and Hotels up 5.1%, bringing the like for like sales
growth for the 42 weeks to 4.1%. Like for like profits in the Tenanted Inns
division increased 1% and Own Beer volumes for the Fuller's Beer Company grew
1% for the 42 week period.

The Company's balance sheet and cash generation remain strong. As at 31
December 2011, net debt was £109.4m, up from £92.5m at the half year following
the previously announced acquisition of five pubs from Marston's on 1 November
2011 for £16m, the purchase of the freehold of one of our formerly leasehold
sites, The Old Fish Market in Bristol, and £5.1m of share buy-backs in the

Fuller's once again enjoyed a strong Christmas, with over 40 managed pubs
having record weeks. Trade has also been good in January, but like-for-like
performance in these nine weeks versus prior year has been boosted by the snow
in the previous year. Given the high level of economic uncertainty in the UK
and the rest of Europe we must remain cautious about the outlook for 2012.

However, we are confident that our acquisitions pipeline and refurbishment
programme will continue to give us good momentum going into a summer of sport
and celebration that should lift the national mood. We have exchanged on two
more pubs that are due to complete before the end of March and the two recent
acquisitions that are currently closed for extensive work, The Crown Inn,
Bishop's Waltham and The White Swan Hotel, Stratford-upon-Avon, will reopen in
March and April respectively.

Michael Turner, Chairman, commented as follows:

"The Company has traded well since we last reported and we have had another
strong Christmas. We have now completed or exchanged on 14 acquisitions so far
this financial year which gives us good momentum going into a summer of sport
and celebration that should lift the national mood. 2012 is finally here and
with the world's attention focused on London, we at Fuller's, our capital
city's only long-standing brewer, intend to showcase what is great about
British Beer and Pubs."

The Company will next report on 31 May 2012 when it releases its preliminary
results for the 52 weeks to 31 March 2012.
