AGM Statement

Vp plc, the equipment rental specialist, announces that at the Group's Annual General Meeting held earlier today, all resolutions put to Shareholders by the Board were duly passed.

Speaking at the Annual General Meeting, Jeremy Pilkington, Chairman, commented:

"I am pleased to report that the Group has experienced a positive start to the financial year.

In the UK, the key markets are generally performing well, with construction and housebuilding in particular generating good demand.

The International business is enjoying new contributions from the TR Group, which we acquired in April 2016, though as anticipated, the global oil and gas market continues to be challenging.

The business performance year to date is encouraging and we have not seen any impact to trading post the recent Brexit decision.

We anticipate making further good progress this year."
