Trading Update


GBG, (AIM:GBG) the global identity data intelligence specialist, provides an update on its trading performance for the year to 31 March 2021.


Trading has been stronger than anticipated since the Company's interim results were reported last December.  In particular, the Company's Identity division benefitted materially through January and early February from increased transaction volumes driven  by the well-publicised spike in bitcoin market activity and retail share trading in the US and Europe.  It also saw a positive impact from the financial stimulus packages in the US.  


As a result of this, the Board now believes the financial results for the full year will be ahead of consensus expectations with forecast revenues to be at least £213 million and operating profit above £53 million.


The Group expects to provide a further update on trading during the week commencing 19 April 2021 and to report its results for the year to 31 March 2021 in June 2021.
