Michelmersh Brick Holdings Plc

("MBH" or the "Group")


Full year profit before tax likely to exceed market expectations

Michelmersh Brick Holdings Plc (AIM: MBH), the specialist brick manufacturer and landfill company, today reports to the market on a better than expected trading performance in the second half of the year to  31 December 2015, achieved through operating efficiencies, continued low energy costs and aided by the additional capacity from Freshfield Lane. Delivery volumes are below previous expectations as a result of a softening of the market, however average selling prices are ahead of those budgeted. As a consequence, the Group is likely to exceed the market expectations of profit before taxation for the year. The results for the full year are scheduled for release on 21 March 2015.
