AGM Statement

Michelmersh Brick Holdings PLC (AIM: MBH), the specialist brick manufacturer, announces that at its Annual General Meeting (AGM), which is to be held at 11.00 am today, Martin Warner, Chairman, will make the following statement:

 

" The strong and well-balanced order book and positive order intake momentum reported in our FY21 results in March has continued to date, with stable demand from our loyal customer and distributor relationships in all of our end markets, whilst production volumes have continued in line with expectations.

 

"We continue to operate in a more challenging environment due to such factors as the ongoing elevated inflation rate. To protect our margins, we remain focused on mitigating risks to our input costs as well as maintaining appropriate portfolio pricing. As such, as announced in our FY21 results in March, in collaboration with our customers we will introduce our standard timetabled price increase in July 2022. At the same time, to mitigate the ongoing energy price risk, we have secured over 90% of the Group's energy requirement for 2022 with further contracts into both 2023 and 2024.  

 

Despite the current macroeconomic uncertainty, the Board is confident that the ongoing quality fundamentals in our business and the wider sector provide resilience to our outlook. The Group has made an encouraging start to 2022, and combined with our strong forward order book, we remain on track to meet full year expectations."

 

Pending approval by shareholders at the AGM, the dividend in respect of the year ended 31 December 2021 of 2.50 pence per ordinary share will be paid on 13 July 2022 to members on the register on 6 June 2022.
