AGM Statement

 

Michelmersh Brick Holdings PLC (AIM:MBH.L), the specialist brick, land development and landfill company, announces that at its Annual General Meeting (AGM), which is to be held at 10.30 am today, Martin Warner, Chairman, will make the following statement:

 

"Trading in 2019 has been robust with production volumes in line with expectations. Forward sales have also been positive leading the Company to expect a first half weighting to its financial performance for the year as the overall capacity of the five plants within the Group is fixed. Initial performance indicates that the acquisition of Floren in February 2019 is proving a sound investment that will contribute to the Group's trading performance and strategic options moving forward. The Group's performance to date in 2019 gives the Board confidence in achieving expectations for the full year to 31 December 2019."

 

Pending approval by shareholders at the AGM, the final dividend in respect of the year ended 31 December 2018 of 2.14 pence per ordinary share will be paid on 28 June 2019 to members on the register on 24 May.
