AGM statement and Q1 Trading Update

Franchise Brands plc (AIM: FRAN), an international multi-brand franchisor, will hold its Annual General Meeting today at 11.00am, at which Stephen Hemsley, Executive Chairman, will provide the following update:

"Metro Rod's forward momentum in Q1 has continued apace, with our franchise network growing their system sales by 12.9% (FY2018: 10.4%) resulting in a record quarter. Our Vision 2023 strategy of providing franchisees with sales and marketing support and new IT systems has seen 12 of our franchisees achieve year-on-year growth of over 30% in Q1.

We are encouraged to see that our B2C brands, ChipsAway, Ovenclean and Barking Mad, have had a positive start to the year and that franchisee recruitment has improved.

Overall, the group is trading well, and the board looks forward to the remainder of the year with confidence."
