DIVIDEND AND TRADING STATEMENT

 

For the quarter to 27 August 2017

 

 

 

For immediate release                                                                  5 September 2017

 

Games Workshop Group PLC announces that the Board has today declared a dividend of 35 pence per share.  This will be paid on 27 October 2017 for shareholders on the register at 22 September 2017, with an ex-dividend date of 21 September 2017. The last date for elections for the dividend re-investment plan is 6 October 2017.

 

Following on from the Group's update in July, trading for the first quarter of the current financial year has continued strongly.  Sales and, given the high operational gearing of the business, profits for 2017/18 to date are therefore well above the same period in the prior year. 

 

A further update will be given as appropriate.
