- SpaceandPeople's full-year revenue and pretax profit edged higher in what the company said was a dramatic improvement in performance.

Revenue was £13.1 million, from £10.7 million. Pretax profit was £2.3 million, from £1.6 million.

"The long-term benefits of the acquisition of Retail Profile, which I alluded to last year, together with growth in the core business, are readily apparent from the dramatically improved performance from almost every aspect of the business," said chairman David Henderson-Williams.

"At a time of increasing uncertainty and general despondency in the UK retail sector, this is an unashamedly positive and upbeat report."

SpaceandPeople, retail, promotional and brand experience specialist, upped its dividend 21% to 3.5p a share.
