Trading Update


The Board of RM plc ("RM") expects results for the financial year ended 30 November 2018 to be slightly ahead of expectations.


Group revenues increased significantly on prior year driven by the full year benefit of the Consortium acquisition and strong international sales growth.


RM Resources and RM Results both showed organic revenue growth and RM Education benefited from cost improvement initiatives, enabling its profit margin to reach double digit levels. 


Net debt reduced at the year-end by £7m to £6m.


David Brooks, Chief Executive of RM, said: "It's encouraging to see the Group's further progress and the positive performance in all three divisions."


The Group's Preliminary results for the period ended 30 November 2018 will be released in early February 2019.
