Turnover fell 2% to £502,8m, while operating profit rose 53% to £37,1m. Net profit fell 28% to £22,6 million. These results can no longer be directly attributed to the impact of the pandemic, however, according to company management, the surge in demand that followed the end of the pandemic was not met due to problems in the global supply chain. which arose in the first half of the year. This resulted in delays in the delivery of finished products, intermittent quality problems and low inventories.

The decrease in profit in the reporting period was due to an increase in overhead costs and the fact that a year earlier one-time government assistance related to the pandemic was reflected in the financial statements.
