Trading Statement PRE-CLOSE TRADING STATEMENT J D Wetherspoon plc presents below its pre-close trading statement for the financial year to 29 July 2018. The preliminary results are due to be announced on 14 September 2018. Current trading For the 10 weeks to 8 July 2018 like-for-like sales increased by 5.2% and total sales by 5.6%. In the year to date (49 weeks to 8 July 2018) like-for-like sales increased by 5.2% and total sales by 4.2%. Property The Company has opened 6 new pubs since the start of the financial year and has completed the sale of 23 pubs. No further openings are expected in the current year. About £9m of exceptional, non-cash losses are expected in this financial year, mainly a result of pub disposals which were below the value in our balance sheet. The Company has also spent £15.6m on buying the freehold "reversions" of pubs of which we were previously tenants. Financial position The Company remains in a sound financial position. Net debt at the end of this financial year is expected to be about £740m. The Company spent £51.6m in respect of share buybacks in the first quarter of the year. As previously reported, the shareholding of Tim Martin has risen above 30%, as a result of share buybacks in the last 12 years. A rule 9 'whitewash', under the relevant regulations, will again be put forward at the General Meeting in November, which will allow the Company to continue to undertake buybacks Outlook The chairman of Wetherspoon, Tim Martin, said: "We are frequently asked about the effect of Brexit on the Company and the economy. The main advantage of Brexit is that the EU is a protectionist system that imposes high tariffs on non-EU imports such as wine, rice, coffee, oranges, children's shoes and clothes, and over 12,000 other products. "Leaving the EU allows the UK to adopt the approach of countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Switzerland and Australia by dismantling these tariff walls, which improves general living standards. "As the retiring Australian High Commissioner, Alexander Downer, has recently said: "You will do well if you open your markets and you embrace free trade; there was never a country that embraced free trade that was poor as a result." "In this connection, Wetherspoon has started to review its product range and has exchanged French champagne for sparkling wine from the UK and Australia, and German wheat beer for UK and American alternatives. The new products are now available, at reduced prices, in our pubs. "We plan further initiatives in this area in the coming months. "Huge progress has been made in leaving the EU: the referendum has taken place; the manifestos of the main parties, respecting the result, were endorsed in the general election; Article 50 was triggered and the sensible decision was taken to allow legal EU migrants to stay post-Brexit. "Unsurprisingly, the prime minister has run into difficulties by making the mistake of prioritising a "deal" with the unelected EU representatives, which they have little incentive to accommodate, rather than a sensible implementation of Brexit in areas under the control of parliament. "99% of the benefits of leaving the EU, including the avoidance of vast financial contributions, the elimination of tariffs and the reacquisition of fishing rights, need no agreement from any third party. The prime minister can avoid most current problems by prioritising these areas. "I enclose below (Appendix 1) an article I wrote for the Sun newspaper on this issue. "We continue to anticipate a trading outcome for this financial year in line with our previous expectations." "As in the current year, we anticipate considerable cost increases next year, in areas including business rates, the sugar tax, utility taxes and wages. In addition, as a result of an increase in our "swaps", our interest rates will rise by around £7m. Trading statement ends.

Good grief having a go at Wetherspoons for prices incredible!They want to have a look at some of the outrageous prices other pub chains operate.Particularly what they charge for crisps, soft drinks and mixers and other sneaky practices.Whatever I buy in Wetherspoons be it beer, food or soft drinks I am always pleasantly surprised at the price.As an example I bought two meals with drink included the other week and it was only a few pounds more than buying the drinks alone in another establishment.

Typical Channel 4 hypocrisy to highlight this in the knowledge that they charge theircustomers (advertisers) different amounts depending on the time of day,size of audience etc. It's known as "market forces" which most non socialist people adopt most of the time in commercial transactions.

Wetherspoon to create 300 jobs in new Dublin pub and hotel complexBy Ellie Donnelly · 27 April 2018 2:30 AM1?Wetherspoon is to create 300 jobs at a new pub and hotel development in Dublin city centreWetherspoon is to create 300 jobs at a new pub and hotel development in Dublin city centre.The UK pub chain, which has five pubs in Northern Ireland and another five in the Republic, is to start development work on its new pub and hotel located in Camden Street Upper and Camden Street Lower on May 8.The pub and 92-room hotel, which is set to open in the summer of 2019, is being developed in a row of derelict properties at a cost of €18.5m (£16.07m)."We are looking forward to developing the site into a fantastic pub and hotel," Tim Martin, Wetherspoon chairman, said."Our pubs in the Republic of Ireland are thriving and we are confident that the pub and hotel will be a great asset to Dublin and act as a catalyst for other businesses to invest in the city."The development is set to be the biggest single investment undertaken by Wetherspoon, and will result in its largest hotel alongside a pub.The pub will be set over two levels and feature a courtyard beer garden, while a number of original features of the derelict buildings will be retained and restored.This includes the circular stained glass window which was crafted by church decorators, stained glass manufacturers and stone carvers Earley & Company, who were based at the site.The window on the facade of 5 Upper Camden Street is considered to be the work of John Earley, son of the founder of the company.Meanwhile, part of the terrace was also a convent of the Little Sisters of Assumption from 1890 until the 1940s, and their former chapel will also be preserved and form part of the new pub and hotel, a statement from Wetherspoon said.And a name for the pub and hotel has already been chosen.It will be called Keavan's Port Hotel, which is based on evidence from a series of historic maps and records dating back to 1673, showing that the original name of Camden Street Upper and Lower is Keavans Port.Earlier this month, Mr Martin, who lived in Northern Ireland during his childhood, said there was still no movement on two proposed Belfast bars because of "arduous licensing procedures".Mr Martin said the sites - at a former JJB Sports store on Royal Avenue, which had previously been refused a licence because of a "technical issue" and a church building on University Road - were being held back because of taxing licensing application procedures here.He purchased both sites more than two years ago."It's a worry because it's slowing down investment in an important sector and therefore slowing down job creation," he said."It certainly is quite a difficult process and it's like the UK was 25 years ago. It's more arduous than Dublin or Britain. I think we'll have a pub, or two, opened in Dublin before Belfast and we acquired the Republic of Ireland sites long after the Belfast ones," said Mr Martin.The businessman also said he was pleased the company was granted planning permission for the former Methodist Church site on University Road - a project that could potentially create 100 jobs.He said: "It's a similar story to our site on Royal Avenue. We eventually got planning permission, for which we are grateful, but we really can't start work until the licence is granted."Wetherspoon made the headlines yesterday when Mr Martin deactivated all of its social media accounts.

Agree very astute man who is clearly in touch with his customers. I like his pubs too,in a world where companies are ripping customers off left right and centre whether its directly or in directly his pubs are a refreshing change whatever I order food,beer or soft drinks,I never feel ripped off.

Absolutely fantastic top bloke with a brain. Pub chain Wetherspoons shuts down all its social media accounts with immediate effect JD WETHERSPOON is closing down its Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts for all its 900 pubs and head office with immediate effect following the trolling of MPs and others. The pub chain said the move also takes account of recent concerns over the misuse of personal data and the addictive nature of social media. https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/946628/Pub-chain-Wetherspoons-shuts-down-all-social-media-accounts

Lets be honest, do we really want or need to be ruled by Germany and bureaucrats in Brussels..Germany has always wanted full control of Europe and its people then you will UNDERSTAND why so many wonderful UK loving people want out of the GERMAN EU. And when did the EU have its accounts signed off in the last 14 years, never, says it all about financial management.. Daily Express.. "The German civil servant sparked furious reactions from members of the European Union after he was hastily promoted to become the secretary-general of the Commission earlier this month..Ms in 't' Veld cautioned Mr Juncker, saying the appointment threatened the credibility of European institutions and could force MEPs to withdraw their support" https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/931173/European-Union-Jean-Claude-Juncker-European-Commission-Martin-Selmayr-video

Could today's fall be the "elites"/ establishment paying Tim back? His comments were stinging, still an enjoyable read. What is wrong with honest forecasts, ignore the herd, a good buying opportunity. A good business, better than the competition. I sold on this mornings early uptick. 30% profit in 10 months too good and probably too much, was due a pullback. Can't wait to get back back in.
