Hornby regrets not making 'Brexit-themed' model

By Michele Maatouk

Date: Wednesday 25 Sep 2019

LONDON (ShareCast) - (Sharecast News) - Model train set maker Hornby said on Wednesday that its full-year performance would depend on Christmas trading as it expressed regret that it had not produced "a Brexit-themed model".
In an update on the period from 1 April to the end of August ahead of its annual meeting, the company said sales and margins have been higher than the previous year and are in line with internal budgets.

"As is usually the case in our industry; the outcome for the full year is subject to the sales rate over the key Christmas trading period. Timing is everything when it comes to Christmas and we are mindful of the potential supply disruption at the ports if/when we leave the EU," it said.

Hornby started its Brexit preparations last year and said it will do all it can to ensure that its customers get what they want, "on time and in full".

The group also said it regrets not making a Brexit-themed model.

"Our new grasp of social media has shown us that people are passionate about sharing their views on the topic. If the situation persists, we have plans for a locomotive that reliably gets stuck between stations."

At 1010 BST, the shares were up 2.9% at 27.77p.
