Trading Update

Continued strong trading; full year performance expected to be ahead of current market expectations

Renew (AIM: RNWH), the leading Engineering Services Group supporting UK infrastructure, provides the following trading update ahead of the release of its full year results for the financial year ended 30 September 2021 on 7 December 2021.

Since the announcement of our half year results, the Group has continued to deliver a strong trading performance, driven by ongoing demand for its critical asset maintenance and renewals services, and continued operational progress across its diversified Engineering Services end markets.

As a result of this sustained positive momentum, the Board now expects the Group's full year results to be materially ahead of current market expectations with adjusted operating profit expected to be no less than GBP50m versus a current consensus forecast of GBP45.8m.

Activity levels are supported by long-term regulatory spend and the positive outlook for UK infrastructure. Pleasingly, the integration of the Group's two acquisitions during the period, Browne and REL are proceeding to plan and trading is in line with management's expectations.

The Group's order book remains strong, underpinned by our long-term framework positions while net debt and cash generation are in line with expectations.

Renew's differentiated, low-risk, highly cash generative business model, combined with the mission critical nature of its work and exposure to markets with long-term growth dynamics, leaves the Board confident in the Group's ability to capitalise on the long-term opportunities ahead.
