English term or phrase: "trading statement"
This is a document filed with the London Stock Exchange for a public company (a plc) in the UK: I'm having trouble with a good U.S. equivalent - "press release" is my current candidate. Any suggestions?
P.S. online UK business glossaries do not have this term at all. Help!

financial statement; financial report
Explanation:
Companies make periodic reports for a variety of reasons, commercial as well as regulatory. Regular trading statements are also increasingly used by companies both to give an update on revenues and performance and to comment on market conditions. Indeed this may be a preferred method for communication between companies, investors and analysts, helping to benchmark company performance against competitors or the sector in which the company’s shares appear.

Now, since this is a statement filed with the London Stock Exchange, the equivalent term would be the financial statements or financial reports filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.
