Trading Update and Notice of Interim Results

 

Vp plc, the equipment rental specialist, is pleased to provide the following trading update.

 

The Group continues to experience positive trading in the current financial year which is in line with the Board's expectations.

 

The UK division has made further progress, with healthy demand from the infrastructure, construction and housebuilding sectors complemented by contributions from Zenith Survey Equipment and Jackson Mechanical Services (UK) which were acquired by the Group in April 2017.

 

Within the International division, the oil and gas sector remains slow but stable whilst our Asia Pacific based test and measurement business has performed well in the first six months.

 

We anticipate that Vp will make further progress in the current financial year.

 

Notice of Interim Results

 

The Group confirms that it will announce its Interim Results for the six months ending 30 September 2017 on Tuesday, 21 November 2017.  An analyst briefing given by Jeremy Pilkington (Chairman), Neil Stothard (Chief Executive) and Allison Bainbridge (Group Finance Director), will be held at 09.30am on the day of the Interim Results at the offices of Buchanan (107 Cheapside, London EC2V 6DN).
