Trading Update

Hornby Plc, the international models and collectibles Group, is today updating shareholders on trading for the 4th quarter ending 31 March 2021.

Business Performance  

Group sales for the 4th quarter were very encouraging and ahead of budget and the same period last year. As a result, cumulative group sales for the financial year ended 31 March 2021 were ahead of budget and 28% ahead of the prior year.


Whilst the COVID-19 pandemic continues to present uncertainty, both Hornby and our suppliers have been able to operate more effectively through the current restrictions than was the case in the first lockdown, as evidenced by the resilient levels of activity seen in Q4.

Financial Position

Net cash as at 31 March 2021 was £4.7 million compared to net cash of £5.4 million at the end of March 2020.

More information will be included in the full year results announcement, which we are planning to release in June.
