03/08/2015 Interim Results for the six months to 30 June 2015

Rakesh Sharma, Chief Executive, commented: “The Group’s first half performance is in line with our expectations and reflects a generally lower level of activity across most parts of our government related business and the expected pause in normal business given the UK and US election cycles. The uncertainty surrounding the next US fiscal budget and the potential of a Continuing Resolution in relation to Government appropriations has continued to dampen US defence revenues. Further, recent challenges to the Patriot Act are impacting revenues from our US Sotech business and, as previously advised, working capital movements and the impact of the Oman contract termination are reducing cash conversion."
