Extraordinary profits in extraordinary times …

Gear4music (G4M) has delivered an outstanding set of interim results figures, based on its position as a beneficiary from the Covid restrictions across Europe. The previously disclosed 42% sales increase included new customer numbers jumping 52% over last year to just over 400,000, who will bring benefits over the medium- and longer-term. Performance increases and profit margins were leveraged going down the profit & loss account, with PBT of £4.9m delivered against last year’s small loss of £0.1m. With November seeing a continuation of strong trading patterns, G4M expects FY21E results to be ahead of recently upgraded market forecasts. We have consequently increased our EBITDA forecast by £1.1m (+9%) to £13.5m.
