- Ramsdens Holdings has noted strong trading during the early part of the financial year continuing into the important summer period, as it noted an unauthorised access to its IT systems.

Regulatory authorities had been notified of the breach, and the company was working with third-party experts to take all appropriate actions.

"Based on its current assessment, the Company anticipates minimal disruption to its business and trading performance and a small financial cost due to additional IT software and procedures," it said in a statement.

"As a precaution, Ramsdens is in the process of notifying potential impacted stakeholders and will provide appropriate advice and support."

The company continued that the strong trading during the early part of the current financial year across all core business segments had continued into the start of the important summer trading period.

"Directors remain confident of Ramsdens' continued progress."
