ANS doubles interim profits

Security reseller on a high following 91 per cent growth in operating profit

Reseller ANS claims to have seen an “encouraging” start to its financial year after virtually doubling its interim profit on an annual comparison.

The security specialist saw operating profits for the six months to 30 September leap 91 per cent to £473,000, on turnover that increased 46 per cent to £4.16m.

Scott Fletcher, chairman of ANS, which is listed on the PLUS market, said: “This is a highly encouraging position to be in at the halfway mark, and today’s figures are a result of hard work at all levels of the Company. We are delighted with the contributions from our core business and look forward to the further growth of our Unified Communications business in the second half of the year.

“We have also invested substantially in developing storage and virtualisation solutions which are becoming more important as a driver in technological change within our customer base.”

He added: “I would like to thank all staff and my Board and look to the full year with optimism.”
