Following its acquisition of AV Distribution in December, it launched on 13 January to enable it to widen its market through the sale of home cinema and HiFi equipment.

The company said its EBITDA for the full year continues to be in-line with consensus market expectations.

“We are pleased to report that financial performance during the FY22 peak seasonal trading period was in line with the board’s expectations, demonstrating good progress when compared with the same period in FY20,” Gear4music chief executive Andrew Wass said.

“We have a strong pipeline of new products, ecommerce system developments and new website features due to be launched throughout FY23, and as such, we remain confident in our long-term profitable growth strategy.”
