YEAR END TRADING UPDATE

FDM today announces its trading update for the year to 31 December 2019, ahead of its full year results, which will be released on 11 March 2020.

Group Trading in the Period and Closing Balance Sheet

FDM delivered a solid performance in the second half of 2019 and the Board expects the Group's financial performance for the year to 31 December 2019 to be in line with its expectations.

The Group ended the year with 3,924 Mounties placed on client sites (2018: 3,747), representing an increase of 5%.

Revenue for the year to 31 December 2019 was GBP272 million (2018: GBP245 million), an increase of 11% (on a constant currency basis 12%). Contractor revenue is no longer material.

The UK and Ireland* closed 2019 with 1,910 Mounties deployed (2018: 2,004), a decrease of 5%. Reduced demand during the year from UK Government Ministerial Departments in advance of clarity over Brexit and political leadership changes offset good progress made in other sectors in the territory.

North America closed with 1,277 Mounties deployed (2018: 1,196), an increase of 7%, APAC with 497 Mounties deployed (2018: 385), an increase of 29% and EMEA* with 240 Mounties deployed (2018: 162), an increase of 48%.

The Group's balance sheet remains strong with closing cash balances of GBP37 million (2018: GBP34 million) and no debt.

*Reflecting a change in management reporting, 30 Mounties included within UK and Ireland Mounties deployed as at 30 June 2019 have been re-allocated to EMEA Mounties deployed as at 31 December 2019. There is no change to the reported 31 December 2018 Mounties deployed.

Outlook

Rod Flavell, Group CEO, commented:

"FDM delivered a solid performance in 2019. 2020 has started promisingly with strong levels of activity and client demand across all geographies and we look forward to a further year of good progress."

This announcement contains inside information and is subject to the completion of FDM's 2019 formal audit process.
