(the "Company")

                                                                                                                                          7 December 2020

 

HALF YEAR TRADING UPDATE AND DIVIDEND

 

Following the update in early November 2020, the Company announces that our preliminary estimates for the six months to 29 November 2020 indicate sales of c. £185 million (2019: £148 million) and profit before tax of not less than £90 million (2019: £59 million).

 

We are delighted with the global team performance i n the first half given the back drop of major projects and some government restrictions. Further updates on performance will be given as appropriate.

 

Games Workshop Group PLC also announces that the Board has today declared a dividend of 60 pence per share, in line with the Company's policy of distributing truly surplus cash. This will be paid on 25 January 2021 for shareholders on the register at 18 December 2020, with an ex-dividend date of 17 December 2020. The last date for elections for the dividend re-investment plan is 4 January 2021.

 

We expect to announce our half-yearly report for the six months to 29 November 2020 on 12 January 2021.
