Full Results For The Year To End August 2017 – “Solid results in Group’s 11th year of trading, continued strategic progress”. Revenue is up 4.9% and PBT is up 6.6%. This growth seems to have come not from sales (which are down) but from “aftersales”.

Unaudited Interim Results For The 6 Months To End February 2018 – In-line but doesn’t look like it – Here’s the spiel “Cambria will maintain its momentum in the second half and deliver a financial performance in line with market expectations for the year as a whole”.
Still going to remain Neutral here.

AGM Trading Update For Q1 – In-line with the Board’s expectations.
It’s cheap but so is the whole sector. Still not tempted into this sector yet as they all cite caution regarding Brexit (sorry to have to use that word, but it’s true!).
