16 September 2010

Excellent interim results have been reported by technology group Elektron, with revenues rising by 45% and pre-tax profits before exceptionals increasing to £2.46m from £0.17m.  Further strong progress is expected going forward as the group benefits from its high level of operational gearing and the recent acquisition of Hartest.  Pre-tax profit forecasts for both 2010 and 2011 have been increased significantly on the back of this providing scope for a re-rating.
