Cambria annual profit falls as Covid-19 lockdown impact bites

By BFN News | 09:43 AM | Wednesday 25 November, 2020

Automotive retailer Cambria reported a fall in profit as the lockdown earlier this year forced the group to shutter its showrooms, denting revenue. For the year to 31 August 2020, pre-tax profit fell 18.4% to £10.2 million year-on-year as revenue slipped 20.3% to £524 million. After a strong first half of the financial year, the trading performance in the second half was 'significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and particularly the enforced national lockdown for the period 24 March 2020 to 31 May 2020, which required the closure of all non-essential retail businesses, including car showrooms,' the company said. Sales of new vehicles reduced by 26.3% and used vehicles sales were down 20.9%. The company did not propose a dividend for this year. The company said the second enforced national lockdown was having a 'significant impact on our day to day trading.'
