AGM TRADING UPDATE
LONDON - 16 July 2021 - HomeServe, the international home repairs and improvements business, publishes the following trading update for the period 1 April to 15 July 2021, to coincide with its Annual General Meeting which takes place today.
During this traditionally quieter period, product usage remains strong across the business, with claims frequencies in Membership and consumer usage in Home Experts still high. The outlook for the full year remains in line with the guidance given by the Company at its full year results on 18 May 2021.
HomeServe continues to see strong growth in its North American Membership & HVAC business and as expected, Home Experts is on track to reach profitability in this financial year. In UK Membership & HVAC, a transformation programme is under way to create a more diversified, efficient digital business, and return to stable growth. The Group's Continental European Membership & HVAC businesses, and its joint venture in Japan, continue to make good progress.
The Board remains confident in the Group's prospects and continues to expect to deliver an acceleration in performance in FY22 compared to FY21.
HomeServe plans to announce its interim results for the six months to 30 September 2021 on 16 November 2021.
