Trading Update and Notice of Results

 

Wincanton, a leading provider of supply chain solutions in the UK and Ireland, today issues the following trading update ahead of its half year results for the six months ended 30 September 2018.

The Group has continued to experience good levels of trading in the first half of the year and the Board expects results for the financial year to 31 March 2019 to be in line with expectations. 

As previously reported, the Group concluded its Triennial pension negotiations in August.  The agreement provides an affordable and sustainable platform, retaining the Group's ability to invest in the business and to maintain its progressive dividend policy.

The Group disposed of a freehold property during the half year for gross proceeds of £14.5m.  An exceptional profit of £6m will be included in the first half in relation to the sale of the property.

The Group will announce its interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2018 on 8 November 2018.
