Ten Entertainment Group plc


Half-Year Trading Update


"Good growth in sales. On track to deliver in line with full-year expectations."


Ten Entertainment Group plc ("TEG" or "the Group"), a leading UK based operator of 44 bowling and family entertainment centres, today announces a trading update for the 26 weeks to 1 July 2018.


H1     FY18

Sales (£000's)


Like-for-like sales change


Sales growth from net new centres


Total sales change




The Group traded well during the first half of the financial year, with total sales growth of 7.7% and like-for-like sales growth of 3.1%. A good performance achieved despite the unprecedented hot and dry weather conditions throughout the whole of May and June.



The Group continued to expand the size of the estate with the acquisition of four sites during the first half.  This has achieved the upper-end of our acquisitions forecast for FY18, well ahead of schedule.  Tenpinisation is well underway, and extensive refurbishment works at the acquired sites will be completed ahead of the fourth quarter.



Group adjusted EBITDA performance for the first half is expected to be in in line with our expectations, and we expect to remain on track to meet market expectations for the full year.



TEG expects to announce its half-year results on 12 September 2018.


Alan Hand, Chief Executive Officer, commented:

"The business has shown resilience to achieve good like-for-like sales growth and a very solid performance during the half.  We are positioned well for the second half of the year and into 2019."
