We are issuing an unscheduled trading update ahead of the 27(th) March 2021 financial year end.

For the full year, we expect group revenue to decline by -10% to --11% and the adjusted operating margin to be in the range of 15.5% to 16.5%.

Our Preliminary FY2021 Results will be released on 13(th) May 2021.
