Profit after tax for the period from continuing operations attributable to owners of the parent company was £46.8 million or 39.3 pence per diluted share compared with £107.1 million or 90.4 pence per diluted share for the same period a year ago. Net cash flows generated from operating activities was £51.6 million compared with £51.8 million for the same period a year ago. Purchase of property, plant and equipments and software was £12.3 million compared with £13.6 million for the same period a year ago.

In the first half, sales grew by 1% on a like-for-like (LFL) basis, adversely impacted by a weaker trading environment in the second quarter. Demand from customers in the metals, minerals and mining industries and academic research sector was weak, resulting in a 5% LFL sales decline in Materials Analysis compared to the same period last year. However, the company saw a solid performance from its Test and Measurement, In-line Instrumentation and Industrial Controls segments, which combined, posted LFL sales increases of 4%.
