Interim Statement 2017
“The first half of 2017 has seen the Company deliver record figures across revenues, adjusted profit before tax, adjusted earnings per share, and dividends.  This is a robust recovery from the Company’s performance in the first half of 2016.  

“The Company has a healthy order book which provides the Board with confidence that the Group can deliver a full year performance in line with market expectations, and the recent acquisition of Oxford Cryosystems demonstrates that the Group continues to deliver on its buy and build strategy with the completion of its 16th acquisition.”

Annual Report and Accounts 2016

“Although 2016 was a year of contrasts for Judges with the completion of a record four acquisitions but a disappointing trading performance, Judges commences 2017 with a solid financial position, four new businesses, a strong order book and positive order intake since the start of the year, all of which provides a platform for a year of progress.”

Interim Statement 2016

"This has been a period of contrast, with success in the pursuit of earnings-enhancing acquisitions and frustration in respect of short-term trading performance. At this stage, the Board therefore believes that the full year results will be significantly below market expectations.”

Annual Report and Accounts 2015

"Your Group achieved notable progress in 2015, duly reflected in record sales, pre-tax profits and earnings per share. Despite some short-term volatility, the market for scientific instruments continues to benefit from excellent long-term growth drivers. This is illustrated by our steady but consistent growth in revenues and dividends. 

The Group starts the year with a solid order book, a small but exciting new acquisition and a strong financial position, all of which serves to underpin the Board’s confidence that Judges is well positioned to face the inevitable challenges that 2016 will bring."

Interim Statement 2015

“These mid-year figures reflect the weak order intake experienced throughout much of 2014 and the first quarter of this year. I am pleased to report, however, that order intake in the last six months has shown a significant improvement which will bear fruit in the second half. Meanwhile, the acquisition of Armfield illustrates Judges’ continuing ability to execute its growth strategy, utilising the Group’s cash generation. As a consequence the Board remains confident in the ability of the Group to meet market expectations for the full year.”

Annual Report and Accounts 2014

“The year just closed proved disappointing with weak order intake in most of our businesses progressively affecting all measures of performance. On the other hand our business model remains intact, supported by solid cash generation, as evidenced by the £10 million acquisition of Armfield announced early in the New Year.”

Interim Statement 2014

"I am able to announce a record set of interim results for the ninth consecutive year. As indicated in our trading statement in July, progress at the mid-year has been driven by Scientifica’s contribution, with only modest organic growth. The business climate within the instrumentation sector remains challenging but your Group’s ability to pursue its strategic objectives is undiminished."
