Trading Update

Tricorn Group plc (AIM: TCN.L), the AIM listed tube manipulation specialist, provides the following pre-close trading update for the financial year ended 31 March 2018 (the "Year").

Revenue for the Year is expected to be around 20 per cent. ahead of the previous year with the Group benefitting from buoyant end markets and the impact of new business wins.

 Excellent progress has been made across both of the Group's divisions with all businesses delivering increased revenue and substantial improvements in profitability over the previous year. The performances of the Group's USA business and its joint venture in China have been particularly encouraging.

 The Group's results in the final quarter of the financial year were better than anticipated, therefore the Board now expects adjusted PBT* for the Year to be ahead of market expectations.

 Tricorn will provide a further update on current trading and prospects at the time of the release of its audited full year results, which is expected to be on 6 June 2018.

 *All references to PBT are before restructuring costs, intangible asset amortisation, share based charges, foreign exchange derivative valuation.
