Trading update


Future plc ("Future"), the global platform for specialist media, today issues a trading update.


The strong momentum experienced in the first quarter of the financial year has continued and the Board now expects the outcome for H1 to be significantly ahead of its expectations. In particular, we have seen a positive performance in audience numbers within the Media side of the business which has led to strong revenue conversion in both ecommerce and digital display advertising over the first four months of the financial year.


Whilst a great deal of uncertainty remains from the macro-economic environment in terms of H2 outcome, the strong trading in the first four months of the financial year means that the Board now expects the outcome for the full year to be significantly ahead of market expectations.
