LEISURE INDUSTRY TECHNOLOGY business Lo-Q has moved its accounting reference date to 31 December from 31 October.

As a result, Lo-Q is to announce audited results for the 14 months to 31 December 2013 by 30 April 2014, while it expects to release a trading update in November in line with previous years.
Subsequently, interim and annual reports will be published for each of the six months to 30 June and 12 months to 31 December periods respectively.
Lo-Q's queue fast-tracking products are used by around 130 attractions worldwide and have been used by approximately 8.4 million guests since 2001.
