AIM - LOSERS

----------

Gear4music Holdings PLC, down 28% at 260p, 12-month range 254.4p-1,020p. The online musical instruments and equipment retailer reports total sales of £147.6 million in year that ended March 31, down from £157.5 million a year before but above the £120.3 million generated in the pre-pandemic 2020 financial year. Says revenue and earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation ‘slightly lower’ than consensus expectations due to weaker than expected consumer demand during February and March. It adds: ‘Short term inflation-linked overhead cost pressures and weaker consumer confidence across the broader retail landscape will mean the best opportunities for stronger growth during FY23 are likely to be in H2. We are, accordingly, moderating our overall growth expectations for the new financial year, which we believe is the prudent approach in the current environment.’
