1Underlying profit represents profit before tax and non-underlying items (which comprise restructuring costs and amortisation of acquired intangibles). Underlying earnings per ordinary share are based on profit after tax but before non-underlying items.

2Comparatives for 2015 have been adjusted throughout where necessary to reflect the change in treatment of share-based payments, which, as from the year ended 30 November 2016, have been included within underlying costs.

Commenting on the results, Paul Webb, Chief Executive, said:

“We will continue to build on the progress we have made, and I strongly believe that the actions we have already taken leave us better placed to deliver for our customers, and ultimately our shareholders - now and into the future.

“From our strong heritage in public space surveillance we have developed market-leading positions globally in gaming and oil & gas, as well as the UK bus & coach market.

“Great technology, a flexible attitude, and deep sector expertise are what set Synectics apart – and the business is well positioned for significant further growth.”
