Review

The company has recently announced excellent annual results for 2020 and these were a record for the group.  Despite the impact of Covid-19, both revenues and profits increased and strong cash flow led to net cash balances of £15.8m at the year end, an increase of £2.0m over the previous year despite undertaking a share buyback of £1.0m during the year.  The current year has started well and, operating in a growing market, further positive progress seems assured.
