PRESS ANNOUNCEMENT

 

GAMES WORKSHOP GROUP PLC

(the "Group" or "Games Workshop")

 

                                                                                                                 5 February 2018

 

TRADING UPDATE AND DIVIDEND

 

 

Following on from the Group's update on 9 January 2018, the good growth trends have continued to the end of January.  Sales and, given the high operational gearing of the business, profits for 2017/18 to date are therefore slightly above expectations. 

 

Games Workshop also announces that the Board has today declared a dividend of 35 pence per share.  This will be paid on 23 March 2018 for shareholders on the register at 16 February 2018, with an ex-dividend date of 15 February 2018. The last date for elections for the dividend re-investment plan is 2 March 2018.
