Cashbuild herewith provides its voluntary quarterly operational update.

Revenue for the third quarter for the Cashbuild Group was up 3% on the third quarter of the prior financial
year, with the 32 new stores opened or acquired since 1 July 2017 contributing 3% of the increase, whilst the
286 existing stores remained at similar levels. This, together with the growth reported in the first half, equates
to an increase in revenue for the year to date of 3%, with all growth coming from new stores.

Transactions through the tills during the third quarter for the Cashbuild Group increased by 1% to that of the
comparative period, with new stores contributing 3% of the increase while existing stores decreased by 2%.

Selling inflation was 3% at the end of March 2019 when compared to March 2018. Gross profit margin
percentage remained at similar levels to those reported at half year end.
