WH Smith reported a strong trading performance across the Group with profits in line with expectations and revenue up 8%, with like-for-like* revenue up 1%.
“The Group has delivered a strong performance in the first half of the financial year.
“High Street delivered one of our best trading performances in recent years, despite the widely reported challenges facing the UK high street, with LFL sales down 2%. This has been driven by good growth in seasonal stationery ranges including Christmas cards, wrap, diaries, calendars and our latest fashion and art and craft ranges.”
