Urbium has reported that trading in London, particularly in the City, has strengthened in the first quarter of this year. Speaking at the company’s AGM, John Conlan, Urbium chairman, reassured shareholders: "The year has got off to a good start". The company, owner of the Tiger Tiger brand, said that total sales were ahead of last year, with sales at comparable trading units, representing 89% of Urbium's total estate, better than last year. Urbium’s two new City of London sites - Agenda in Mincing Lane and Context at Finsbury Square - will open in May. The group’s first smaller format Tiger Tiger is due to open in Aberdeen in June. All necessary consents for the next large format Tiger Tiger at Cardiff have been secured, with opening forecast for early next year.
