(Alliance News) - Let's Explore Group PLC on Thursday said it aims to buy a beer-delivery company as it reported a widened half-year loss.
The Nottingham-based provider of home-based entertainment VR products said pretax loss in the first half of 2023 widened 19% to GBP1.1 million from GBP938,000 a year prior. Revenue fell to 40% GBP62,000 from GBP103,000.
Administrative expenses increased 58% to GBP1.3 million from GBP858,000.
Meanwhile, the company said it is buying beer-delivery company Lancaster-based Huddled Group Limited for GBP4.0 million, to create a new enlarged company focused on growing a portfolio of e-commerce brands.
Let's Explore said that Huddle's trading business Discount Dragon was "a fast-growing direct-to-consumer e-commerce business focused on the sale of branded fast moving consumer goods - predominantly dry and tinned groceries, and beverages."
Let's Explore shares were down 1.8% at 2.70 pence each in London on Thursday morning.
