Sales and EBITDA Growth for the UK’s Fish and Seafood Market Leader

  (UNITED KINGDOM, 8/12/2019)

Young’s Seafood Limited, the UK’s number one fish and seafood processor, today reports its financial results for the year to 30th September 2018. The results reflect Turnover growth year on year through growth in frozen, chilled, brand and retailer-branded fish and seafood. The frozen sales increase resulted from growth in the company’s market leading brand in the UK and export markets and from a number of own label contract wins. The increase in chilled sales reflected strong customer activity and new listings as well as market growth.

Young's Seafppd os one of the world’s oldest and finest industries.

Financial highlights:

  • 4.3% Turnover growth year on year, with Turnover of £545.9m for the 12 months to end of September 2018 (£523.3m for the 12 months to end September 2017). 
  • 16.0% EBITDA growth, with EBITDA of £23.0m for the 12 months to end September 2018 (£19.8m for the 12 months to end September 2017). 
  • Operating profit before exceptional items and goodwill amortisation of £11.5m for the 12 months to end September 2018 (£8.4m for the 12 months to end September 2017).
Young's Seafood Ltd. is a British producer and distributor of frozen, fresh, and chilled seafood, supplying approximately 40% of all the fish eaten in the United Kingdom every year.

Since the period covered by these accounts, CapVest Partners LLP, a leading international investor, announced the creation of a multi-protein food group with significant potential for further growth. It was announced on 2nd July 2019 that Karro Food Group, a leading UK pork processor, which had been owned by CapVest since March 2017, had reached an agreement to acquire Young’s Seafood Limited. The new Group, which has a strong market presence in the pork and chilled and frozen seafood markets, will have sales of circa £1.2bn and employ over 5,000 people across the UK and Ireland.

 Di Walker.

Di Walker, CEO of Karro Food Group, said: “The 2018 results for Young’s Seafood demonstrate the company’s continued market leadership in seafood and potential for future growth. Bringing restaurant quality fish into new categories, Young’s delivers the best quality own-label service to retailers."

"With a good foundation for growth and new ownership in place, Young’s Seafood is progressing well with the first phase of transition, achieving export growth and new contract wins since the time of these accounts. As we drive forward with our plans for the Group, we are very excited about creating an ambitious multi-protein food business, further developing and broadening our relationships with our key partners.”
