Strong Q3 Trading


-      Excellent trading performance across the Group's busiest quarter

-      Trading in line with current market expectations for FY 2023


Supreme (AIM:SUP), a leading manufacturer, supplier, and brand owner of fast-moving consumer products, provides a trading update for the three months ended 31 December 2022 ("Q3 FY23"). 


Trading across Q3 FY23, the Group's busiest period, was up significantly compared to Q3 FY22 with revenue and gross profit up 30%.


This strong performance ensures the Group remains well placed to meet market expectations for the year ended 31 March 2023, which were increased in November 2022.


The Group's Vaping division has continued its impressive growth trajectory, delivering exceptional organic and acquisitive growth, with Liberty Flights, Cuts Ice and Flavour Core all trading well. Bolstered by its extensive retail distribution network and robust D2C capabilities, Supreme remains ideally placed to capitalise on the fast-growing demand in the vaping market.


The Group's Lighting division is showing ongoing signs of recovery, reaffirming the temporary nature of the slowdown within the category and across the market.  Elsewhere, the Group's Battery division produced another consistent performance.


The remainder of the Group remains profitable and resilient.


The Company's strong Q3 FY23 performance has ensured Supreme remains well positioned for future growth, underpinning management's confidence in the Group's outlook for FY 2024. Supreme is focused on building on the significant trading momentum generated across the period to deliver on its medium-term strategic priorities.
