CMC stated that it is making further progress across its areas of strategic focus: Growth in Core Markets, International Expansion, Product Innovation, Digital Marketing and Institutional Offering.

CMC’s full year results for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2016 will be announced on Wednesday June 8.

Since its IPO in early February, CMC shares have traded fairly well, sitting at £2.53 today versus the IPO price of £2.40.

In addition to its IPO, the January-March 2016 quarter saw other major changes at CMC, including the launch of a brand new website, platform and look for the company.
