Games Workshop is pleased to announce a significant increase in sales and profits for the period from 28 November 2016 to 15 January 2017, compared to the same period last year. In light of the above, and having now finalised the product phasing for the year, profits for 2016/17 are likely to be above market expectations.
Sales and profits have further benefitted from the continuing favourable impact of the weaker pound. However, the Board remains aware that there is some uncertainty in the trading periods ahead for the rest of the 2016/17 financial year.
Games Workshop Group PLC also announces that the Board has today declared a dividend of 30 pence per share. This will be paid on 3 March 2017 for shareholders on the register at 27 January 2017, with an ex-dividend date of 26 January 2017. The last date for elections for the dividend re-investment plan is 10 February 2017.
The information contained within this announcement is deemed by the Company to constitute inside information as stipulated under the Market Abuse Regulation.
