THIS ANNOUNCEMENT CONTAINS INSIDE INFORMATION FOR THE PURPOSES OF ARTICLE 7 OF THE UK VERSION OF THE MARKET ABUSE REGULATION (REGULATION (EU) No 596/2014).  UPON THE PUBLICATION OF THIS ANNOUNCEMENT THE INSIDE INFORMATION IS NOW CONSIDERED TO BE IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN.

 

The Restaurant Group plc ("The Group" or "TRG") - Trading update

 

 

Since TRG last updated the market on 15 September 2021, The Group has traded well with like-for-like sales* out-performance versus the market** across our Wagamama, Pubs and Leisure businesses.  We have also seen a minor improvement in UK airport passenger volumes leading to a partial recovery in the sales run rates in our Concessions business.

 

As a result, management's expectations for the Group's FY21 Adjusted EBITDA are today increased to a range of £73m-£79m (on an IAS 17 basis), subject to no unexpected Covid related disruptions being announced before the end of the financial year.

 

FY21 year-end Net Debt is now expected to be less than £190m (on an IAS 17 basis), with the improved position driven primarily by the robust trading performance.

 

Management's expectations for FY 2022 remain unchanged from the outlook outlined at our interim results in September.

 

The Group's next scheduled update is the preliminary results announcement in March 2022.
