- Revolution Bars (RBG), an operator of 68 premium bars in the UK, said full year results are expected to be in line with expectations after sales rose by 9.2% to £130.4 million in the 12 months to 1 July.

Like-for-like sales rose by 1.5%, down from the 1.7% reported after 44 weeks, after terrorist attacks in Manchester and London impacted business, particularly in the north west.

Like-for-like sales growth has since strengthened, up by 2.7% over the last six weeks. Revolution opened six new bars during the year. It said average weekly sales for the new bars are ahead of the board's expectations.

It plans to open another six new bars in the new financial year, split equally between its Revolution and Revolucion de Cuba brands.
