Revenue for the nine months to 31 March 2023 was GBP522.0m, an increase of 6% compared to GBP492.4m for the corresponding period last year.

In our Manufacturing technologies business, revenue for the first nine months was GBP496.7m, compared with GBP467.4m last year. Strong systems sales have contributed to growth in our industrial metrology and additive manufacturing business. Our position measurement business has continued to see subdued demand from the semiconductor and electronics sectors in the third quarter, resulting in lower revenue this year compared to last year. Revenue from our Analytical instruments and medical devices business for the first nine months was GBP25.3m compared with GBP25.0m last year.

Adjusted profit before tax for the nine months to 31 March 2023 amounted to GBP111.8m compared with GBP124.0m last year and the statutory profit before tax amounted to GBP117.3m (FY2022: GBP120.2m). As previously reported, we have invested in increased customer facing activities this year and operating cost increases also reflect pay reviews undertaken in the last two years.

Financial position

The Group balance sheet remains strong with cash and cash equivalents and bank deposits amounting to GBP227.8m (31 December 2022: GBP211.5m).


We expect current market conditions to continue during the remainder of this financial year. We continue to invest in innovative new products and manufacturing capacity to support our growth objectives, whilst managing costs carefully and focusing on productivity. We anticipate that revenue for the full year will be between GBP680m and GBP700m, and adjusted profit before tax will be between GBP135m and GBP150m.

The preliminary results for the year ending 30 June 2023 will be released on 14 September.

(*) Adjusted profit before tax

The adjustment to statutory profit relates to:

- the accounting treatment of certain forward currency contracts used as hedging instruments which do not qualify for hedge accounting as they do not meet the hedge effectiveness criteria set out in the International Accounting Standard IFRS 9 'Financial Instruments'; and

- third-party costs in the previous year relating to the formal sale process ('FSP') concluded in July 2021.

The Board views the adjusted profit before tax as a useful measure to analyse the underlying performance of the Group. The following table reconciles statutory profit before tax to adjusted profit before tax:
