In its Trading Update for the six months ended 30 June 2021 Mpac reports that the upturn seen in H2 2020 has accelerated with H1’21 order intake well above that a year earlier - which had suffered the impact of COVID-19. The update highlights:
Strong performance in the Americas, enhanced by the successful integration of Switchback Group, which continues to trade ahead of management expectations, and an expanded regional presence.
A second half order book which is ahead of the opening level of £55.5m. This underpins our full year revenue outlook of £95.0m.
Implementation of unified business processes providing the basis for streamlined operations and a platform for sustained growth.
