DRS Data & Research Services plc Declares Final Dividend

DRS Data & Research Services plc declared a final dividend of 0.4 pence per ordinary share, at the annual general meeting held on May 19, 2014.

Drs Data & Research Announces Interim Management Results for the First Four Months of 2014

DRS Data & Research Services announced interim management results for the first four months of 2014. Revenue for the first fourth months of 2014 is significantly down on the same period last year. The principal reason for the decline in revenue is a reduction in demand for examination marking services, as stated in the 2013 Annual Report, resulting from the structural change to academic qualifications in the UK secondary education market. In the light of these developments appropriate cost reduction measures are being implemented to reduce the cost base of the business but the reduced level of revenue is likely to result in pre-tax profits being significantly below current market expectations.
