“Overall, our market leading Book, Point-of-Sale (POS) and Exhibition and Events businesses have continued to gain market share,” the statement said.

“Our Marketing Services segment continues to develop in line with our plans, and our acquisitions have integrated well into the group. We have invested in these businesses to strengthen and develop their propositions and to enhance cross-selling opportunities.

“Our balance sheet is robust and the Group’s financial position remains strong.”
