July 23 British engineering company Renishaw Plc
, under pressure from a strong pound, reported an 11
percent fall in adjusted full-year pretax profit.
The company, which generates about 90 percent of its revenue
from outside the UK, said adjusted pretax profit fell to 70.1
million pounds ($119.6 million) in the year ended June 30 from
79.2 million pounds a year earlier.
Revenue rose 2 percent to 355.5 million pounds, the
Gloucestershire-based company said.
Renishaw, whose products include machine tool probes,
spectroscopy devices and 3D metal printing equipment, said its
profit would have been 6.8 million pounds higher if the pound's
exchange rate had remained at the previous year's levels.
The pound rose 12.4 percent against the dollar in the
year to June 30.
