It expects to make a pre-tax loss of £0.8m in the year to 31 December 2016, down from £1.4m the previous year, but it recently reported its first profitable quarter and expects its first annual profit in 2017 on the back of an “exceptionally strong” order book.

Topps Tiles (LSE: TPT) sells wall and floor tiles to retail and trade customers from more than 350 shops across the UK.

However, with a “notable shift” in consumer confidence in the second half of the year, like-for-like sales in the first eight weeks of the new financial year fell by 0.3%, and the share price has fallen by more than 40% in the last 12 months.
