At today's AGM the Chairman, Nigel Payne, will read out the following statement:


"The Board is pleased to report that the good start to the year reported at the time of our full year results in July has continued, with strong trading momentum leaving us well placed at this stage of the current financial year. In July we reported being close to having 1000 employees and I am delighted to say that the headcount has, this month, broken through that number."


At the AGM today, shareholders are being asked to approve, amongst other things, a final dividend of 5.4p (2018: 4.8p) per share, which if approved, will be paid on 18 October 2019 to those shareholders on the register at the close of business on 20 September 2019.
