Industry outlook

Strong performances from both the Speciality Agriculture and Agricultural Supplies divisions have continued into H221, supported by buoyant livestock and milk prices and an improvement in UK farmer confidence generally as the prospect of a no-deal Brexit disappeared. The H221 Engineering divisional recovery that management expected has been realised, supported by contracts from the nuclear and defence markets, a recovery in the oil & gas market, and reduced overhead costs resulting from minor restructuring programmes at the end of FY20 and during H121 following the appointment of new CEO, Hugh Pelham.
