Following its £200m acquisition of Matthew Clark in October, the company has traded strongly with sales up 4.9% on the corresponding prior period (53 weeks to 1 May 2015). The number of outlets supplied has increased 2.9% since acquisition with the number of customers also 2.9% higher.

Diana Hunter, chief executive officer of Conviviality Plc, said: "We have successfully completed a transformational year for the company, its employees, customers and franchisees. We look forward to a strong set of results reflecting our transition to being the UK’s leading independent alcohol wholesaler, serving consumers through the on-trade and through its Franchise retail estate.  

“The acquisitions of Matthew Clark, Peppermint and Bibendum PLB Group enable Conviviality to fulfil its aim to satisfy all consumer drinking occasions, enabling it to have unrivalled insight and expertise as the drinks sector’s leading wholesaler and distributor.”
