30 April 2015
Howden Joinery Group Plc is today publishing a trading update covering the first four periods of the year (16 weeks to 18 April).
Performance so far this year is in line with our expectations, with market conditions unchanged.
Howden Joinery UK revenue was up 9.4% on the corresponding periods last year, increasing by 7.0% on a same depot basis. Along with the evidence we have of trading prospects, this would continue to indicate that market conditions remain good.
We are on track with our plans to open 30 new depots in the UK this year. With six new depots having been opened so far, Howden Joinery is now trading from 595 depots in the UK.
Next scheduled announcement
The Group will release its 2015 Half Yearly Report on 23 July 2015.
