Halfords Group plc: Trading Update 
Full year profit before tax1 expected to be within a range of GBP90m-GBP100m after the repayment of furlough support. 
 
Halfords Group plc ("the Group"), the UK's leading provider of motoring and cycling products and services, today 
updates the market on its recent trading performance. 
In our Q3 trading update on 14 January 2021, we highlighted a weaker like-for-like ("LFL") growth rate as we exited the 
quarter. This was due to regional lockdowns impacting motoring demand, as well as global container shortages and port 
disruption delaying stock arriving into the business. Although we have continued to experience a volatile trading 
environment across the first seven weeks of Q4, overall trading has been stronger than we initially anticipated across 
the business, and we now expect full year profit before tax1 to be within the range of GBP90m - GBP100m. The Board has 
taken the decision to repay in full GBP10.7m of furlough income received, and the profit range is after this repayment. 
For the first seven weeks of Q4, from 2 January 2021 to 19 February 2021, Group LFL growth was +6.2%, with Retail +5.1% 
and Autocentres +13.3%. Despite journeys being c.40% below pre-pandemic levels, our Autocentre business has continued 
to demonstrate signs of growing market share, with strong demand for both our garage business and Halfords Mobile 
Expert vans. In Retail, our Motoring business, whilst being -14% LFL, has again performed better than traffic levels 
would suggest, with sales of blades, bulbs, batteries and general maintenance products performing better. Cycling has 
seen LFL growth rates improve as supply disruption has eased, although overall supply remains sub-optimal. Cycling LFL 
over the period was +43%, with our unique and exclusive range of kids and adult mechanical bikes performing well, along 
with our performance cycling business, Tredz, which continues to see exceptional growth, up +60% LFL in the period. 
Although only six weeks remain of FY21, the expected profit range remains quite broad as trading patterns continue to 
be volatile, with sales ahead of Easter particularly difficult to predict whilst the UK remains in lockdown. As the 
country starts to open up once more, our overriding priority remains the health and safety of our colleagues and 
customers. 
Our next planned trading update will be our Preliminary results announcement on 17 June 2021.
