“On the back of this hard fought year, I am really pleased we have been able to return the business to solid profitability and significantly strengthen its cash position. Collectively, we have worked hard to achieve this but it has not been without its challenges. Given the current uncertainty of some of the markets in which we operate, this is a good result and, on the back of recent contract wins, we look forward to a year of continued progress.”
