Trading Update


Notice of Results & Investor Presentation


Supreme (AIM:SUP), a leading manufacturer, supplier, and brand owner of fast-moving consumer products, provides a trading update for the six months ended 30 September 2022.


The Board is pleased with the Group's performance across the period, with trading in line with expectations for the year ended 31 March 2023.


The Group's Vaping division, a significant profit driver for the Group, has continued its strong growth trajectory across the period, driven by a combination of both organic and recent acquisitive momentum. 


As previously flagged, the Lighting category slowed down during the period in line with the slow down across the market. The early indications of recovery evidenced in retail sales across September and October reaffirm the temporary nature of this slow down.


The remainder of the Group remains profitable, resilient and highly cash generative.


The Board remains positive about the Group's future growth prospects, with Supreme focusing on delivering organic growth whilst fully integrating its recent Vaping acquisitions. Supreme has both the strong operational foundations and a clearly defined growth strategy in place to further increase its retail footprint across the Group's leading categories and continue to capitalise on the fast-growing transition from tobacco to vaping.
