Market capitalisation


Carr’s Group’s Speciality Agriculture division serves farmers in the UK, Ireland, the United States, Germany, Canada and New Zealand with feed blocks and feed supplements. The Engineering division offers remote handling equipment and fabrications to the global nuclear and oil and gas industries.

There will be a delay to the publication of the group’s audited FY22 results because a separate audit of the associate that was sold as part of the disposal of the group’s Agricultural Supplies division is required for independence reasons. This delay resulted in the shares being temporarily suspended from trading on 4 January. Management will request a restoration of the listing when the FY22 results have been published.
