Trading Update

 

 

 

 

Portmeirion, the manufacturer and worldwide distributor of high quality homewares under the Portmeirion, Spode, Wax Lyrical, Royal Worcester and Pimpernel brands, updates on trading for the first half of the current year.

The Group is pleased to announce that total Group sales are up 11% for the six months ended 30 June 2018 relative to the same period last year. On a constant currency basis, total Group sales are 15% up on last year.

We are delighted with the positive start to the year with strong progress in both our ceramic and home fragrance divisions. With the seasonal weighting of our business, trading in the second half of the year remains important to the Group. We remain confident that we will achieve profits for the full year in line with market expectations.

Interim results for the six months ended 30 June 2018 will be announced on 2 August 2018.
