- Equipment rental specialist VP said today overall demand for its services has remained relatively consistent with that experienced in the first half of the financial year.

VP said whilst the weather conditions during December were unusually severe, the impact on the business was largely neutral. The group expects to report full year results in line with market expectations.

Debt levels within the Group remain well within committed facilities and the associated covenants.

VP said it believes a sustained economic recovery is likely to be some way off. However, it anticipates that opportunities will appear in the future and its strong balance sheet will enable it to embrace these as they arise.

The group believes it will deliver another very satisfactory result in the current financial year.
