Howden Joinery Group Plc ('the Group') is today publishing its Interim Management Statement covering the year to date. Trading information is in relation to the first four periods of 2014 (to 19 April 2014).
Performance so far this year is in line with our expectations, with the improved market conditions seen since last summer continuing.
In the first four periods (16 weeks) of 2014, Howden Joinery UK revenue was up 11.2% on the corresponding periods last year, increasing by 8.5% on a same depot basis.
We are currently planning to open 30 new depots this year. With 6 new depots having been opened so far, Howden Joinery is now trading from 565 depots in the UK.
There have been no material changes to the financial position of the Group in the period save as a result of the usual impact of the level of trading and those other matters disclosed herein.
