In other areas, its Lighting category slowed in accordance with the general market slump, the company stated. However, Supreme explained that the downturn was only transitory following early signs of a recovery in retail sales in September and October.

In addition, the remaining segments of the company continue to be “profitable, resilient and highly cash generative,” according to Supreme.

Furthermore, Supreme continues to be optimistic about its future growth, concentrating on generating organic growth while completely integrating its most recent Vaping acquisitions.

The group believes it has the “strong operational foundations and a clearly defined growth strategy” to increase its retail footprint and capitalise on the transition from tobacco to Vaping.

The company stated that it will report its interim results for the six months to September 30 on Tuesday, November 29.

Following its trading update, Supreme shares jumped to a high of 85p at the open. They are now trading 5.85% higher at 82p at the time of writing. However, the stock has felt the full force of the macroeconomic environment this year, with its shares tumbling 66% in 2022.
