('Vp' or the 'Group')

 

AGM Statement

 

Vp plc, the equipment rental specialist, will hold its Annual General Meeting ('AGM') at 10am today at Rudding House, Rudding Park, Harrogate, HG3 1JH.  At the AGM, Jeremy Pilkington, Chairman of Vp, will make the following statement:

 

"Trading in the new financial year has been broadly in line with management expectations.  The core UK markets of infrastructure, construction and housebuilding have continued to be supportive, although we have seen some geographical variance in demand, particularly in London and the South East, where market conditions have been more subdued.  Our International division has also had a satisfactory start to the new trading year.

 

Notwithstanding an element of uncertainty in the wider economic outlook, we believe that the Group remains well positioned to make further progress in the current financial year."
