AGM Trading Update
Telecom Plus PLC (trading as Utility Warehouse and UW), the UK's only supplier of bundled household utility services, is holding its Annual General Meeting today. At the meeting the Chairman, Charles Wigoder, will say:
"Today I am providing a trading update for the Group for this financial year, further to our Annual Results Announcement on 27 June.
The strong trading performance we reported in our recent annual results is continuing, with energy price volatility having reduced significantly over recent months. We therefore continue to expect to deliver comfortable double-digit annual percentage customer growth for the current year, leading to a broadly corresponding increase in adjusted pre-tax profits.
We remain focussed on our medium-term target of welcoming an additional million customers to UW, underpinned by our market-leading offerings across energy, broadband, mobile and insurance, and the competitive advantage that our unique multiservice customer proposition gives us."
