K3 Capital Group plc, a leading business and company sales specialist in the UK, today announces a trading update ahead of its interim results for the six-month period ended 30 November 2017 (the "Interim Results"), which will be announced on 16 January 2018.


The Interim Results will demonstrate a continuation of the Group's strong performance across all three divisions with significant uplifts from the comparable prior year period ("H117").


The Board is pleased to report that the Group will record revenue of approximately £7.5m, an increase of 34 per cent. compared to H117 and EBITDA of approximately £3.3m, an increase of 27 per cent. compared to H117. Both revenue and EBITDA figures are comfortably in line with market expectations for the full year ending 31 May 2018.


The Board remains committed to paying a progressive dividend to shareholders and accordingly will declare a dividend payment in the Interim Results in January.


John Rigby, Chief Executive Officer, commented:


"I am delighted to report on what has been a strong six months for K3, comfortably in line with market expectations. The Group's three brands continue to gain recognition and market share within their fields, and we are pursuing our stated strategy of increasing the average deal size across the Company.


"The Group is encouraged by the significant pipeline and we remain optimistic that we will continue to deliver growth against our core KPIs over the coming six months and beyond."
