STRONGER THAN EXPECTED H1 PERFORMANCE – FULL YEAR OUTLOOK AHEAD OF MARKET EXPECTATIONS
In what has been an unprecedented period, what has shone through is the resilience and agility of our teams and our businesses. Together, we have managed to overcome numerous challenges in order to continue the delivery of quality products to our customers. Their skills and hard work have secured a strong performance and we take this opportunity to again thank them.
Though it has become more difficult for many to gather together it is pleasing to see that people’s desire to celebrate life’s special occasions has not waned despite the current circumstances. We’ve also seen countless families embracing at-home activities such as sewing or crafting. Similarly, Christmas in 2020 is being enthusiastically anticipated with customers reporting strong sell-through of decorations, gift packaging and crackers.
The outlook is encouraging, although we remain aware of continued global and regional challenges. Thanks to the strength of our performance in this half, together with our strong future pipeline, we are now tracking to deliver a full year performance ahead of market expectations.
