Nick Basing, Chairman, commented:  

"Very good progress has been made during the period, in line with the growth strategy outlined at the IPO in April 2017.  Tenpin is building towards being the ideal hallmark to attract today's modern leisure customer.


"TEG is demonstrating a good growth formula, driven by a combination of organic sales growth, a continuous refurbishment programme and laser-like acquisitions.  I am confident that full-year Group adjusted EBITDA will be at the top end of the range of current market consensus."


Alan Hand, Chief Executive Officer, commented:  

"The business has shown good momentum since the IPO and has performed well in meeting our key performance objectives.


"I am particularly encouraged by the business transformation opportunity of the innovative Pins & Strings technology, expanded into a further five sites during the second-half of the year.  This technology is transforming the experience for our customers as well as improving the dynamics of our business model.  In addition, we have made further improvements to the quality of the customer experience, through our highly committed and engaged colleagues."
