Falklands-focused retail and logistics firm FIH Group PLC hiked its dividend on Tuesday after profit and revenue rose amid a much improved performance from its largest unit. For the year ended March, pretax profit widened 74% to GBP3.3 million from GBP1.9 million the year prior. This was after revenue rose 8.2% to GBP43.8 million from GBP40.5 million the year before.
Falkland Islands Holdings PLC on Tuesday reported a fall in pre-tax profit for its recently ended financial year, and said it expects to see a quieter period in the Falklands for the year ahead, to be offset by its Portsmouth Harbour Ferry and Momart businesses.
Falkland Islands Holdings PLC said on Monday that underlying pre-tax profit and revenue was broadly flat in its recently-ended financial year, and trading so far in the new year has met its expectations as it seeks to accelerate its growth and increase its scale through acquisitions.
Falkland Islands Holdings chairman David Hudd has resigned from the board with immediate effect and been succeeded by non-executive deputy chairman Edmund Rowland, it was reported on Monday. John Foster continues as group managing director.
Falkland Island Holdings PLC announced on Monday that its pre-tax profit increased slightly in its first half as strong sales at the company's London-based Momart operations offset increased costs at its Falkland operations. The international services group, which focuses on transport and logistics, said its underlying profit before tax was up 14.8% to £ 1.37 million for the six months ended September 30 compared to £ 1.19 million the previous year.
