- Science in Sport said the year to Dec. 31, 2015, was another successful trading period in which sales continued to grow strongly and performance was in line with management expectations. Trading was very strong in the final quarter of the year and this momentum has carried into 2016.

Sales increased 18% to £9.45 million in the 12 months to 31 December 2015 compared with the same period the previous year (2014: £8.03 million).

Sales growth was particularly strong in international markets, from the Company's own online operation and from third-party e-tailers.

The first quarter of 2016 sees the launch and roll out of the Company's novel WHEY20 protein product, which will be distributed in approximately 1170 multiple grocer outlets by April. In addition approximately 400 independent cycle shops, High Street retailer Decathlon, and both Company and third-party e-commerce websites will sell the product.

The Company terminated its master distributor agreement with SiS Asia Pacific in December 2015, and has set up a wholly owned subsidiary to develop directly the SiS brand in the Australian market, managed by an in-market commercial team.

The Board remains confident of continued strong growth in 2016 and beyond.
