RFG requests trading halt

Donut-King-OutletRetail Food Group has requested a trading halt ahead of the release of its first half year results, according to a release from the ASX.

The release also added: “If the Company fails to lodge its half year results for the period ended 31 December 2017, its securities will be suspended from the commencement of trading on Thursday 1 March 2018.”

“As foreshadowed in the release made on 9 January 2018, RFG expects its statutory NPAT (net profit after tax) for 1H18 to be materially less than the result for the equivalent prior period.”

RFG’s results will only be released once the auditor’s report has been issued which may not be until 2 March.

RFG is the parent company for brands including Gloria Jean’s, Pizza Capers, Crust, Michel’s Patisserie, Donut King and Brumby’s Bakery.
