Pre Close Trading Update 


Staffline (AIM: STAF), the Staffing and Employability organisation, providing people and operational expertise to industry, is pleased to provide the following update on trading for the six months ended 30 June 2015.


As indicated at the time of the AGM on 21 May 2015, trading has been strong during the first half of the year and in line with market expectations. 


The Staffing business has continued to perform well, following its record start to the year, with growth underpinned by both existing clients and an excellent new business pipeline. The PeoplePlus division, known as Avanta prior to the acquisition of A4e Limited ("A4e") in April 2015, is making good progress in the nine Work Programme regions where it is now prime contractor. The integration of A4e is on track and the Board remains confident that the acquisition will support the Group's continued growth ambitions.


Interim Results will be announced on Wednesday 22 July 2015. A presentation for analysts and investors will be held at 9.00am on the day of results at the offices of Buchanan, 107 Cheapside, London EC2V 6DN.
