July 2 Anite Plc, which tests handset
and telecom networks, said adjusted full-year pretax profit fell
about 50 percent, hurt by weakened revenue at its core
Anite, whose clients include Samsung Electronics Co Ltd
and Vodafone Group Plc, said adjusted pretax
profit fell to 14.9 million pounds ($25.3 million) for the year
ended April 30, from 29.5 million pounds a year earlier.
Adjusted revenue fell 3.4 percent to 109.2 million pounds.
The company's adjusted results are for continuing
operations, excluding its travel reservation software business,
which it sold to the private-equity arm of Lloyds Banking Group
Plc for 45 million pounds in May.
