Santa good to Fayrewood

Or at least as good as he said he was going to be

Christmas trading matched expectations at Fayrewood, the pan-European distributor reported this week.

A brief note to the City today, where it is listed on the Alternative Investment Market, bragged that it "experienced the anticipated strong sales across the group in the final quarter of 2005". Total dividends for 2005 will be double those given in 2004, at 1.5p.

Its role as a wholesaler of computer equipment to retailers in France and Spain may have done the most to keep the firm feeling festive this year. Prelimary results due in March.®
