1992 Annual Report

HIGHLIGHTS: The profit after tax of $8.0m was 91% ahead of last year’s profit before extraordinary items of $4.2m. This result was achieved despite a 12% drop in sales from $286m to $251m. Although sales in steel merchandising were lower, an improved profit was earned. The contracting operations also had higher earnings, mainly due to a lift in Robt Stone’s performance. Motorcorp Holdings Limited (50% owned) had an unprofitable year, which is a reflection of the prevailing state of the car market.
