The AGM of RM plc ("RM"), a leading supplier of technology and resources to the education

sector, will be held today at 11.30am.  At the meeting, John Poulter, Chairman, will make the following statement:

 

"The trading outlook for the Group remains in line with the Board's expectations, taking into account the usual seasonal pattern of demand and increasing pressure on UK school budgets.

 

Net debt as at 28 February 2019 was £21.8m (February 2018: £26.1m).

 

The 2018 triennial review of the RM pension scheme has been concluded, with the ongoing deficit recovery payments to the pension fund remaining broadly unchanged at £3.7m per annum.

 

The Board is recommending a final dividend of 5.70 pence per share which constitutes a total dividend for the year of 7.60 pence per share, an increase of 15% over the prior year.  The dividend payment will be made on 12 April 2019 to those shareholders who were on the register as at 15 March 2019."
