Ten Entertainment Group reports like-for-likes up 3.1%: Ten Entertainment Group, the UK operator of 44 bowling and family entertainment centres, has reported like-for-like sales increased 3.1% for the 26 weeks ending 1 July 2018. Total sales were up 7.7% to £37,804,000 with sales growth from net new centres of 4.6%. The company stated: “The group traded well during the first half of the financial year, with total sales growth of 7.7% and like-for-like sales growth of 3.1%. A good performance achieved despite the unprecedented hot and dry weather conditions throughout the whole of May and June. The group continued to expand the size of the estate with the acquisition of four sites during the first half. This has achieved the upper-end of our acquisitions forecast for FY18, well ahead of schedule. ‘Tenpinisation’ is well under way, and extensive refurbishment works at the acquired sites will be completed ahead of the fourth quarter. Group adjusted Ebitda performance for the first half is expected to be in line with our expectations, and we expect to remain on track to meet market expectations for the full year. Ten Entertainment Group expects to announce its half-year results on 12 September.” Chief executive Alan Hand said: “The business has shown resilience to achieve good like-for-like sales growth and a very solid performance during the half. We are positioned well for the second half of the year and into 2019.”
