Science Group hails "solid performance" despite profit drop

21st Mar 2024 12:06

(Alliance News) - Science Group PLC on Thursday celebrated a jump in annual revenue, which it said was driven by contributions from a recently acquired firm, but noted that profit dropped on higher costs.

Science Group is a Cambridge, England-based science, engineering and technology business, providing services to the medical, defence, industrial, food & beverage and consumer sectors.

Pretax profit fell 32% to GBP7.6 million in 2023 from GBP11.1 million the year before, as finance costs were 23% higher at GBP1.2 million compared to GBP977,000 in 2022.

Revenue, however, was higher at GBP113.3 million, an increase of 31% from GBP86.3 million the previous year.

This includes a contribution from TP Group PLC, which it acquired back in January last year for GBPBP17.5 million.

Science Group proposed a final dividend for 2023 of 8.0 pence per share, up 60% from 5.0p a year prior.

Looking ahead, Science Group said it expects growth to "persist through the first half of 2024."

Shares in Science Group rose 4.6% to 390.00 pence each in London on Thursday afternoon.
