Nick Roberts, Chief Executive Officer, commented:

"2020 was a year of unprecedented challenges and I am full of admiration for the energy and determination of our colleagues to ensure the safety of our customers, suppliers and each other.

Despite these challenges, we have shown great agility and versatility in adapting our working practices, further digitalising our engagement with customers and reshaping our business to suit the changing demands of our markets.

Our teams have also been able to make excellent progress on a number of key initiatives supporting our strategic objectives, particularly around simplifying commercial deals and refining our pricing architecture, which will drive future benefits.

In addition, I am pleased today to be able to confirm that the process to demerge Wickes has recommenced. The Wickes digitally-led model has proved highly effective during the pandemic and the business is in great shape to embark on its journey as a standalone entity.

Whilst uncertainty remains, we have seen a good recovery through the second half which gives us confidence that the fundamental drivers in our markets are robust. The continuing progress against our strategic plans leaves the Group well placed to outperform in those markets."

Past performance of the shares of Travis Perkins plc cannot be relied upon as a guide to the future performance of the shares of Travis Perkins plc. Summary

After an encouraging start to 2020, the first lockdown in the spring significantly disrupted both the Group's trading and supply chain. While the Group recovered well in the second half led by the domestic Repairs, Maintenance and Improvement (RMI) market, overall revenue in 2020 declined by 11.5% to GBP6,158m. Despite ongoing restrictions, performance was encouraging, demonstrating the agility and resilience of the Group's portfolio of businesses.

Throughout the pandemic, the health and safety of our colleagues, customers and suppliers has been our first priority. The Group continues to work with all parties involved in the construction industry, including government and trade bodies, to set standards to maintain safe working practices and support the ongoing recovery in the sector.

At the start of the initial lockdown in late March, the majority of the Group's businesses were closed and focus was solely on supporting essential projects, such as the construction of the Nightingale hospitals, with staffing reduced to a minimum to adhere to strict safety guidelines. Wickes and Toolstation, due to their advanced digital capabilities, were able to repurpose their branches as fulfilment centres to support the local trade either via click and collect or home delivery, although the Wickes showrooms business remained closed.

Through May and June, with the majority of the construction industry having been classified as essential and workers returning to building sites, all businesses across the Group began to cautiously reopen, adapting operating models to ensure compliance with Covid-19 safety requirements. Revenues over the first half of the year were thus down by 19%.

The high growth in the DIY market, which started during the first lockdown, has been sustained, benefiting Wickes and, to a slightly lesser extent, Toolstation. The broader domestic RMI market also recovered strongly, driven by the high number of housing transactions and homeowners having both the resources and need to invest in their properties as working from home has become far more prevalent. The Group has, however, seen a slower return to activity in new housebuilding and major commercial projects resulting from fewer new projects starting.
