Making good progress First half revenues grew by an impressive 53% with the Group benefiting from a stronger product offering that was well received in both the UK and overseas markets. Reported PBT was £3.07m which was a material improvement on the comparable period's £1.9m loss. Profits would have been far better still but for the adverse £2.93m 'mark to market' impact of forward exchange contracts and derivative instruments under IFRS. The statement highlights that the Group is continuing to witness solid trading and that Character is on track to achieve current market expectations. The interim dividend was held at 3.30p, but management hope to recommend a return to a progressive dividend policy in due course.
