Pre-Close Trading Update and Notice of Results
YouGov, the international research and data analytics group, today issues a trading update for the six months ending 31 January 2020.
We are pleased to report that half year trading is anticipated to be in line with the Board's expectations for the current financial year.
During the period, revenue growth was primarily driven by Data Products, with the US and UK markets performing particularly well. Good margins were maintained within the Custom Research division. The Group continued to focus on investment in technology, platforms, support functions and key markets, to support scaling. The Group's recent acquisition of SMG Insight, now YouGov Sport, delivered strong results ahead of plan.
The Board remains confident of achieving its full year targets in line with the second five-year growth plan.
