Games Workshop Group Sales and Profits Ahead of Prior Year

FTSE News FTSE 250

Games Workshop Group PLC (LON: GAW) have stated that following on from the Group’s update in September, trading to 3rd November 2019 has continued well. Compared to the same period in the prior year, sales and profits are ahead. Royalties receivable are also significantly ahead of the prior year driven by the timing of guarantee income on signing new licences.

Our preliminary estimates of the results for the six months to 1 December 2019 are sales of not less than £140 million and profit before tax of not less than £55 million.

Games Workshop Group said that a further update will be given as appropriate.
