Latham(James) PLC - Trading Statement

Revenue and profit before tax for the year ended 31 March 2019 are expected to be in line with market expectations.  Integration of the Company's recently acquired business in Ireland, Abbey Woods, is going well and results so far have been encouraging.

The Board anticipates releasing the Company's preliminary results on 27 June 2019.

As announced in July 2018, Chris Sutton will be retiring from the Board on 31 March 2019.  He has worked tirelessly for the business since the announcement and has been a great help to Andrew Wright as he prepares to take on the role of Managing Director of Lathams Limited from Chris on 1 April 2019.  The Board wishes Chris and Andrew every success for the future.
