Trading update

and

Investor Site Visit

 

On 14 July 2014, Sprue, one of Europe's leading home safety products suppliers, released a trading update for the six months ended 30 June 2014. Since that date, the Company's order book has grown considerably, largely driven by a significant increase in smoke detector orders received for the French market. As a result, the Board now expects that the Company's results* for the year ending 31 December 2014 will exceed market expectations.

 

The Company will provide a further update on trading and prospects for the current year at the time of the release of its unaudited interim results for the six months ended 30 June 2014 which are due to be announced on 22 September 2014.

 

In addition, the Company announces that it is hosting an institutional investor site visit on 20 August 2014 at which no material new information will be disclosed. 

 

*Before exceptional AIM costs of £0.5m in H1 2014
