Trading Update

Zinc Media Group plc (AIM: ZIN), the leading TV and multimedia content producer, announces the following trading update ahead of its audited preliminary results for the year ended 30 June 2017 which the Company expects to announce in mid-October 2017.

For the first time in recent years the Group has returned to profitability at an adjusted EBITDA level and expects to report an adjusted EBITDA profit for the full year in excess of GBP0.3m.

As detailed in the interim results, the year was characterised by a restructuring of the business, involving an exit from the vast majority of the publishing businesses, which as a division was operating unprofitably, to enable the Group to focus on its TV production and digital communications divisions. The restructuring has positioned the business strongly for the current financial year and beyond. The Directors believe that the Group's profitability will increase substantially during the current financial year.

Progress continues to be made in each of the divisions. The TV division continues to win commissions, with the programming mix characterised by longer running series, bigger budgets and new international broadcaster relationships. The quality of Zinc Media's products continues to be recognised in the marketplace, with a 2017 BAFTA nomination for 'Inside Obama's White House' and five awards at the EVCOM Screen Awards for short form film.

Furthermore, with several senior management hires having been made in the last financial year, the Group believes it now has the right team of talented executives to drive sustained growth.

The expectation of increased profitability in the current financial year is supported by a strong order book in the TV division. At the start of the new financial year the TV division had a commissioned slate (to be delivered during the financial year) of GBP6.5 million. This is 76 per cent. higher than at the beginning of the previous financial year, when the commissioned slate stood at GBP3.7 million. All ongoing divisions traded profitably during the last financial year and this is expected to continue in the current financial year.
