01/08/2016 Interim Results for the six months to 1 July 2016

"Market conditions have remained largely unchanged since our last preliminary announcement. US defence outlays ended the period close to budget levels but with higher spending in the first quarter compared to the second. The order book has increased over 2016; further, we have been selected for some significant orders in export markets with contract award expected in the second half. Our latest acquisition, Herley, performed well in the period and its integration is ahead of schedule. The proceeds of the recently announced disposal of ID Systems will be used to reduce Group debt. We continue to explore options to further rationalise and improve Ultra’s portfolio." Rakesh Sharma, Chief Executive. Go to page

29/02/2016 Preliminary Results for the Year Ended 31 December 2015

2015 was a significant year for the Group, in which it completed its largest acquisition, introduced a new market segment structure and launched a Standardisation and Shared Services (S3) programme, whilst continuing to face difficult market conditions. Ultra’s full-year performance was in line with market expectations and reflected, as anticipated, a generally lower level of activity across most parts of our government related business. By year-end a comprehensive UK Strategic Defence & Security Review and a two-year US budget agreement had signalled some welcome stability although how this plays out remains uncertain. Go to page
