Adrian Ringrose, Interserve’s Chief Executive

“It has been a very good first half of the year for Interserve. We have delivered strong organic growth, achieved through robust performances from our UK Support Services and Construction businesses and excellent results in Equipment Services.

“Market conditions in International Construction and Support Services continue to be highly competitive, although we are now starting to see signs of improving demand.

“Our strong organic growth was complemented by the performance of our acquisitions. Initial Facilities traded in line with our expectations during the period and its integration is progressing smoothly.

“Our financial position remains strong which, together with our growing future workload, underpins the Board’s confidence in our positive outlook and the increase in the interim dividend to 7.5 pence.”
