THG CEO Matthew Moulding said: “We have delivered a strong trading performance in Q3 and enter our peak trading period with confidence. The recent successful migration of Cult Beauty onto the Ingenuity platform is testament to the resilience of the infrastructure and the expertise of our digital talent. In under ten weeks, we have seamlessly migrated Cult Beauty, whilst delivering significant website and customer user-experience improvements at the same time.

“I would like to thank all of our employees given how much they have achieved in the 12 months since IPO. Our talented workforce has grown considerably and as well as significantly outperforming the trading guidance provided at IPO, they have been tirelessly expanding the business model across all divisions.

“The appointment of two independent non-executive directors and four special advisors since IPO has been hugely beneficial to the Board, and we have real optimism for 2022 with the step-up to a Premium listing on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange following the appointment of an independent Chair.”
