The FTSE 250 group, which is behind sites such as TechRadar and publishes the popular FourFourTwo magazine, had already lifted guidance on two occasions this year - the last of which was only in July.
But trading in the final couple of months of Future’s financial year has been even more impressive still, helped by customers flocking to its various product review sites around Amazon Prime Day.
Future has also been boosted by last year’s £101mln acquisition of Purch, which has expanded its presence in the US where trading has remained “strong”.
As well as better-than-forecast underlying earnings (EBITDA), bosses said the full-year results, due to be published in November, will also show “excellent” cash conversion and leverage of under 1x.
“Our strategy of growing our core business through expanding our audience and reach in existing verticals is bringing further momentum,” said chief executive Zillah Byng-Thorne.
“Integration of our acquisitions is on track and we now have a substantial presence in the US. We are successfully leveraging our brands on our technology platform, driving strong growth across the business.”
Shares were up 10.3% to 1,315p on Thursday morning, taking Future to the top of the FTSE 250.
