Chairman Barry Mence commented that: “Alongside ensuring strategic progress and position, we remain focused on our revenue and profit objectives. This is underlined by our record first half performance for revenue and profit, our record revenue visibility of $27.2m, our record cash balances, and our maiden dividend declaration. The final quarter has always had a strong weighting on the overall results for the year, and as we move through the summer our commercial teams remain highly active. Noting this, the Board in turn remains confident that the Group is trading comfortably in line with market expectations.“
