Pre-close Trading Update

Michelmersh Brick Holdings Plc (AIM: MBH), the specialist brick manufacturer and landfill company, today announces a trading update ahead of its final results for the year ended 31 December 2017, scheduled for release on 19 March 2018.


The Board expects that underlying revenue and profit from the Group, enlarged by the acquisition of Carlton Main Brickworks Limited in June 2017, will be in line with market expectations. The Board is also pleased to report that the Carlton acquisition, which increases the Group's output to over 100 million bricks, is bedding in as expected and operational synergies are being implemented. 


Demand from the house building and RMI markets continues to be robust and Group's well-balanced forward order book for 2018 reflects this trend.
