Centaur Media plc

AGM statement


The following trading update will be provided to shareholders at the Company's AGM, to be held at 12.30pm today.


Revenue growth in the first four months of the year was 5%. Paid-for content and exhibitions revenues continue to grow well, although we are currently experiencing some market pressure in advertising and sponsorship revenues.


Cash conversion for the first four months of the year was 170% and we expect cash conversion rates for the remainder of the year to remain strong. Net debt at 30 April was £15.2m, down from £17.9m at 31 December 2015. We remain confident that net debt to adjusted EBITDA will be tracking below one times by the end of the year.


Whilst it is early in the year, the Board anticipates that trading for the full year will be in line with market expectations.
